Should we stream IDP against Philly this season?

If Chip Kelly is planning on running anything like the ORE offense at PHI, should we be looking at PHI as a good opponent to stream IDP players against? The rough idea being, more offensive plays = more tackle/defensive play opportunities. It's kind of like thinking about closers in fantasy baseball: opportunity is 90% of the game.

I only got to catch snippets of the PHI/WAS game tonight, but saw a little graphic that PHI ran 51 plays in the first half. That's a lot of plays (right?), and from a fairly uninformed scan it looked like there were a lot of pretty high tackle numbers racking up among WAS defenders.

If you've got top line IDP then of course you should stick with them, but if you need to stream, what do folks here think about PHI as a good streaming opponent? Next week they play SD, and D. Butler is available in my league. I was disappointed with Russell Allen, and may try to swap them out.

As long as it is a guy you are comfortable with dropping and losing if someone takes him, I don't see a problem with it. Russel Alan isn't reliable to me.

Hell, I like Curtis Lofton but he isn't too reliable either.

I'd definitely add Butler, I'd probably keep him for the whole season too. Must be light on the IDP side if he's still out there. As far as IDP streaming... I've never really looked at it that way, but the logic is there. As long as you don't mind dropping a certain player to allow you to do this, I think its an interesting way to look at it and might be worth a shot in tackle heavy leagues
