OK, you know what week it is -- Its the week when all the money and bragging rights are on the line. If you’re still streaming a position at this point your have either just lost a stud to injury or have been using some Jedi mind tricks to will your team into contention.


Odds are if you are in the championship then Lamar Jackson is your QB but if not maybe think about...

  • Mitch Trubisky, Bears v. Chiefs … Should provide a relatively high floor with his legs and has thrown 8 TDs over the last 4 weeks

Running Backs

Key injuries to watch: Dalvin Cook (MIN),  Alexander Mattison (MIN), Damien Williams (KC)

  • Mike Boone, Vikings v. Green Bay … The uber athletic Boone doesn’t catch passes but was trusted near the goal line. Watch the injury report and if Cook and Mattison are sideline then Boone will tot the rock as Minnesota tries to clinch a playoff berth
  • Kerryon Johnson, Lions @ Broncos … Detroit really doesn’t have a reason to play Johnson but as far as talent goes he’s the best guy available. Risky yes, especially against Denver who’s been strong against the run even while allowing the 14th most yards (93 yards) and receptions (5.5) per game to running backs

Wide Receivers

Key injuries to watch: Chris Godwin (TB)

  • Breshad Perriman, Buccaneers v. Texans … 183 yards and 4 touchdowns can’t be ignored plus he’s Jameis Winston’s new go to WR with Godwin and Mike Evans out
  • Anthony Miller, Bears v. Chiefs … also can't be ignored category. 377 yards over the last 3 weeks is a big number but even bigger is the 15 targets from Mitch in week 15

Tight Ends

  • Jacob Hollister, Seahawks v. Cardinals … Flow chart recommendation. Is there a starting TE playing against Arizona available to be picked up. Yes? Then play him.
  • Noah Fant, Broncos v. Lions … Fant has the athleticism to put up a big fantasy day
  • Darren Fells, Texans @ Buccaneers … Fells doesn’t catch a lot of passes but he could snag a touchdown against Tampa Bay who’s allowed 7 scores to TEs
  • O.J. Howard, Buccaneers v. Texans … all year TE has been brutal because of guys like Howard underperforming but he has the match up and opportunity to put up numbers against Houston


  • Colts v. Panthers … if you want to play it safe you go with Indy at home against the lethargic Panthers
  • Falcons v. Jaguars … If you are feeling dangerous then consider Atlanta who has averaged the 5th most fantasy points over the last 4 weeks
  • Redskins v. Giants … If you are borderline suicidal, then you look to Washington at “home” against the Giants… ONLY IF … Daniel Jones plays. While this is risky -- Washington leads the NFL with 21 sacks over the last 4 weeks resulting in 5 fumble recoveries


  • Kai Forbath, Cowboys @ Eagles … Dallas’ new-old kicker for looked good last week booting a 5 extra points, two 42-yarders, and a 50-yard field goal. Heading into week 15 head coach Jason Garrett call on the field goal team 26 times in 81 4th down attempts showing a propensity to go for the points. Plus Forbath’s strong leg could add very important bonus points. Weather looks clear so far in Philadelphia.
