Week 15 Fantasy Football Starts/Sits
With the fantasy playoffs in full swing it is time to get to the nitty gritty. I hope that you have been paying attention to us all sea son. We strive to bring you the best in fantasy coverage all year long. In saying that, we are on our to playoffs as well.
Therefore, without further ado here is your week 15 lineup.
Jameis Winston - Tampa Bay Buccaneers Winston is a turnover nightmare. However you have to sacrifice something in a positive matchup. The Lions, on average, giving up 20+ fantasy PPG to opposing QBs.
Raheem Mostert - San Francisco 49ers Mostert leads the Niner backfield in snaps, touches, and fantasy points over the last two weeks. He has a strong matchup in week 15 vs the Atlanta Falcons defense who is allowing the third-most points to the position.
Dede Westbrook - Jacksonville Jaguars Westbrook is a strong option at WR this week. The Jags are going to be without DJ Chark. This makes Westbrook a good play against the Oakland Raiders. Their defense has allowed over 40 fantasy PPG to opposing WRs.
Tyler Higbee - Los Angeles Rams Higbee is a fantasy playoff blessing. This week the Rams have a down Dallas Cowboys defense that is playing some of it worst football at the wrong time. They give up an average of 5 receptions and 13+ fantasy PPG.
Matt Prater - Detroit Lions Tough choice here as many kickers have solid fantasy matchup. I like Prater this week against the Buccaneers. Their defense is allowing the most fantasy PPG to kickers along with 28 FGs and 33 extra points.
Seattle Seahawks The Seahawks are a must start this week in your fantasy playoff game. A plus matchup against the Carolina Panthers is on the slate. Their offense is giving up an average of 5 sacks, 3 turnovers, and third-most fantasy points since week 11. Next we take a look at the players that may cause you to lose.
Kirk Cousins - Minnesota Vikings Cousins has been a surprise this season. In fact, he has made me eat my words a couple of times. However, in week 15 against Los Angeles Chargers I would sit him down. The LA defense has only allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points on the season.
Devin Singletary - Buffalo Bills Singletary has been on a roll since receiving more carries in the Buffalo offense. Nonetheless, week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers is an opportunity to sit him. The Steelers have only given up three TDs at home to opposing RBs.
Tyler Lockett - Seattle Seahawks Lockett is currently the 99th fantasy WR. Also a negative matchup in week 15 against the Carolina Panthers is on tap. They have allowed just 4 TDs to Lockett's position.
Jimmy Graham - Green Bay Packers Graham has been somewhat quiet this season. He had his best week of 2019 last week. This week should find him back on the bench against the Chicago Bears. An inconsistent game plan for the TE makes Graham a no go.
Josh Lambo - Jacksonville Jaguars Lambo has been one of the best kickers to stream. Although this week against the Raiders, he is a bad choice. Oakland is only allowing six FGs in Oakland. Defense Indianapolis Colts The Colts have been a fairly solid defense for the season. However, you should bench them this week against the New Orleans Saints. Since week 11, defenses are last in fantasy points against the Saints.
That is your week 15 lineup. I hope that you are in your playoffs and making a push.
