Fantasy Football Week 15 Start ‘Em and Sit “Em: The King’s Guide to Tough Lineup Calls

You are now one game away from the Fantasy Football Super Bowl if you are reading this. That may also mean you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself to advance to the next round. You may be overthinking things and constantly second, third and fourth guessing yourself. Being indecisive does not help you win in Fantasy Football Week 15 or beyond. You must simply make a final decision, stick to it, and know that no matter what happens, you made the most informed and well-researched decision possible. Once the games start, there is nothing more you can control.

When faced with a tight decision, matchups can break that tie. But you should always stick with the players who have been more proven over the course of the season over those who have only shown up recently. When it comes to injuries, always go with the healthy player when making a choice between two guys and one is looking iffy.

Be confident and assertive now after making it this far. Now is not the time for anxiety and indecision.

Fantasy Football Week 15 – Start ‘Em

Running Backs

Raheem Mostert vs. ATL: He is clearly the best running back on the 49ers right now, as Mostert can score from anywhere on the field. The Falcons have allowed the most receiving yards to running backs over the past month. Fire up Mostert for upside in Fantasy Football Week 15.

Kareem Hunt vs. ARI: He has been very efficient since returning and is starting to become more of a factor in the running game. The Cardinals have allowed the fifth-most Fantasy Points Per Game to running backs over the past month.

Patrick Laird vs, NYG: He had 19 touches for 86 yards last week and is a useful plugger if you are in need of a decent flex option.


Wide Receivers

Darius Slayton vs. MIA: You should roll him out as a WR3 type in Fantasy Football Week 15. Eli Manning connected with Slayton for two scores last week and will want to deliver some more big plays in what will likely be his final home game as a Giant. The Dolphins have allowed the second-most FFPG to WRs over the past month.

DK Metcalf vs. CAR: I expect the Seahawks to start opening up their passing game more this week against the Panthers. They need to start displaying more offensive balance than they have shown recently, and they have the weaponry to get it done. The Panthers have allowed the second-most yards in the NFC to WRs over the past month.

Curtis Samuel vs. SEA: The Seahawks defense will mainly be focused on containing Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore. That approach will likely free up the speedy Samuel for a big play or two and a visit to end zone in Fantasy Football Week 15.


Tight Ends

Jack Doyle vs. NO: He disappointed in Week 14 against Tampa Bay, but you should stick with Doyle, as he remains a premier part of a depleted passing game. The Saints have allowed the second-most receiving yards to TEs over the past month.

Jacob Hollister vs CAR: If Seattle is more effective in the passing game this week, Hollister will be very involved in key situations and as a TD target.



Ryan Tannehill vs HOU: He has emerged as a top 10 Fantasy QB over the past month and a half, and the Texans have allowed the third-most FFPG to QBs over the past month. In a showdown for the AFC South lead, Tannehill will deliver for you in Fantasy Football Week 15.

Baker Mayfield vs. ARI: He is a quality streamer if you don’t want to risk using Josh Allen or Jameis Winston. The Cardinals have allowed the third-most FFPG to QBs over the past month.


Sit ‘Em

Running Backs

Devonta Freeman vs. SF: This one is pretty obvious for Fantasy Football Week 15. Consider any other quality option over Freeman. The 49ers defense will rebound in a big way this week and Freeman cannot help you win a Fantasy playoff game this week.

Boston Scott vs. WAS: He looked great on Monday against the Giants and added much-needed life to the Eagles offense. But he has no track record of previous success and those types are dangerous to count on at this time of year. Scott could easily slip back into irrelevance after one good week.

Sony Michel vs. CIN: Sure, the matchup looks enticing. But it did last week, too, and Michel did nothing of consequence, to put it lightly. He is barely even rosterable right now and should not get starting consideration at all in Fantasy Football Week 15.


Wide Receivers

Anthony Miller vs. GB: He has been surging recently, but the Packers have allowed the fewest FFPG to WRs over the past month and Bears-Packers could turn out to be a lower-scoring divisional game.

Cole Beasley vs. PIT: There may not be much to expect from Josh Allen in the passing game this week, but if he is going to make an important play vs. the Steelers, he must get the ball to John Brown. One prominent Bills WR will not produce much vs. Pittsburgh, and I bet that will be Beasley.

Mike Williams vs. MIN: He is an overrated and unreliable jump-ball guy who has not scored at all this year. You should not be relying on Williams in Fantasy Football Week 15.



Tom Brady vs CIN: Yes, he is the GOAT, but he certainly doesn’t look like much of a Fantasy asset nowadays. Don’t be swayed by the matchup in Fantasy Football Week 15, there is no solid assurance he can take advantage of it. I would use him over Allen or Winston, but Brady is not a Top 12 Fantasy QB this week.

Jameis Winston vs. DET: The matchup looks great, but you don’t want to be worrying that his thumb issue will kill your Fantasy season. As already indicated, when in doubt, always go with the healthy player.

Tight Ends: In most cases, you should know who is starter-worthy at this position, as there may not be 10 TEs we can feel comfortable with as starters. That said, Tyler Higbee is not a Top 10 option this week and should not be used over a guy who has played mostly better this season. Higbee is coming off two incredibly friendly matchups and has no previous record of success prior to the past two weeks. He is a very risky start.
