After another excellent week of NFL football, we thought it wise to take a look at some possible free Agent IDP stars who dominated week 7. It stands to reason, linebackers like Malcolm Smith and Chris Borland, who took over for starters, had good games. However, long in the tooth stars like Jay Ratliff, James Ihedigbo, and Elvis Dumervil were also key parts to their defenses this week. Take a look at these players when trying to make decisions for week eight and beyond.
