Yes….you read the title correct.

A Philadelphia Eagles has become a fantasy football star in the past month.

No we are not talking about Nick Foles. Or Zach Ertz. No not Alshon Jeffery either.

We are talking about Rasul Douglas.

In fantasy football leagues that have IDP (individual defensive player) as part of the roster, Douglas has been the highest scoring defensive back in the month of December.

The second-year corner has bounced back in a huge way since the tough stretch against Dallas and New Orleans where Amari Cooper and Michael Thomas had big days against Douglas.

Tackling has been the highlight of Douglas the past month leading Philadelphia in take downs three of the last four weeks. In leagues that emphasize tackling in their IDP position, Douglas has been big for fantasy owners.

In just the last three weeks, the former West Virginia product notched 9 tackles against Dallas, 11 against the Rams, and 8 last week against Houston.

His coverage grade has gotten better in December too. Against the Redskins and Cowboys, Pro Football Focus had Douglas over a 70.0 coverage grade with grades of 71.5 and 83.2. In the last two weeks, the coverage grade has stayed over the average 50.0 grade.

Add an interception and four tackles for loss on the month and you have an IDP player peaking in the middle of the fantasy playoffs.
