Kaden Elliss – IDP Recap And Deep Dynasty Profile

Welcome to inside linebacker Kaden Elliss’s 2022 IDP recap and deep 2023 dynasty profile.

2022 Regular Season Recap

An absolutely unknown IDP target before the 2022 season, fourth-year NFL man Kaden Elliss was a waiver wire dream come true when fantasy stud Pete Werner went down. And the late 2019 seventh-rounder stepped in and kept that production rolling just like Werner had.

So now it’s Week 16, and the Saints have finally placed Werner on injured reserves. Unlocking any doubt, Elliss is going to be hot through the rest of the playoffs. That’ll include his best fantasy points average from Weeks 9 to 12. Setting the tone to impress again, with around nine tackles on average. And showed us he’s capable of recording a tackle for a loss or a sack or some other splash play in the process.

So this recap hot take. Kaden Elliss’s continued his auditioning with an elite tackle per snap percentage. Just like he did in that four-week span that’s caught all IDP managers’ attention, and like he saved so many manager’s playoff runs as a middling waiver wire add at first. Or just helped end their opponent’s chance with upper-tier LB1 production with the NFL film to back it up.

Deep Dynasty Profile

Here is where it gets interesting. The Saints found gold with a depth player and now have to decide whether to resign him or not. And in the process, other suitors will likely need an explosive LB at the same time because someone will give Elliss a prove-it contract somewhere.

And for the Saints to fully commit. They’ll have to consider letting long-time veteran Demario Davis walk with a cap and big dead money hit. And consider paying Elliss enough in 2023. He’ll want to stay. And potentially start next to Pete Werner, and stack two elite LBs together going forward.

But whichever way this scenario falls, this hot take. Kaden Elliss made his mark in the NFL this year and did it to the highest possible degree. So some organizations will try to scoop him up and give him an opportunity. So our main take on the situation. Elliss will surface in IDP leagues as a dynasty option with a smaller window. And it’s just going to be where he gets his next shot to impress everyone again.
