  18. Marcus Mariota @SF
  19. Tyrod Talyor vs. MIA
  20. Jared Goff @SEA
  21. Joe Flacco @CLE


Case Keenum has been very consistent over the second half of the season and the Bengals consistently give up around 18 points to quarterbacks. That puts fantasy owners in a solid position to expect a floor of 18 points, which is enough to steady the position if you don’t own an elite QB option.


  1. Le’Veon Bell vs NE
  2. LeSean McCoy vs. MIA
  3. Melvin Gordon @KC
  4. Devonta Freeman @TB
  5. Todd Gurley @SEA
  6. Alvin Kamara vs. NYJ
  7. Kenyan Drake @BUF
  8. Mark Ingram vs. NYJ
  9. Jordan Howard @DET
  10. Alex Collins @CLE
  11. Kareem Hunt vs. LAC
  12. Marshawn Lynch vs. DAL
  13. Latavius Murray, vs. CIN
  14. Alfred Morris @OAK
  15. Carlos Hyde vs. TEN
  16. Jamaal Williams, @CAR
  17. Mike Davis vs. LAR
  18. Leonard Fournette vs. HOU
  19. Jay Ajayi @NYG
  20. Rex Burkhead @PIT
  21. Samaje Perine vs. ARI
  22. Jonathan Stewart vs. GB
  23. Dion Lewis @PIT
  24. Lamar Miller @JAC
  25. 25.Theo Ridddick vs. CHI
  26. Isaiah Crowell vs. BAL
  27. Joe Mixon/Gio Bernard @MIN
  28. DeMarco Murray @SF
  29. Christian McCaffery vs. GB
  30. 30.Duke Johnson vs. BAL


Latavius Murray was uninspiring in Week 14, but the Vikings are one of the biggest favorites among all Week 15 teams. That means we should see a lot of Murray in the later portions of the game against a banged up Bengals run defense that has allowed over four yards per carry in each of the past three weeks.


  1. Antonio Brown vs. NE
  2. Julio Jones @TB
  3. Keenan Allen @KC
  4. Michael Thomas vs. NYJ
  5. Doug Baldwin vs. LAR
  6. Brandin Cooks @PIT
  7. Devin Funchess vs. GB
    8. Adam Thielen vs. CIN
  8. DeAndre Hopkins @JAC
  9. Dez Bryant @OAK
  10. A.J. Green @MIN
  11. Davante Adams @CAR
  12. Michael Crabtree vs. DAL
  13. Mike Evans vs. ATL
  14. Marvin Jones vs. CHI
  15. Larry Fitzgerald @WAS
  16. Jordy Nelson @CAR
  17. Golden Tate vs. CHI
  18. Marqise Lee vs. HOU
  19. Marquise Goodwin vs. TEN
  20. Tyreek Hill vs. LAC
  21. Stefon Diggs vs. CIN
  22. Alshon Jeffery @NYG
  23. Josh Gordon vs. BAL
  24. Jamison Crowder vs. ARI
  25. JuJu Smtih-Schister vs. NE
  26. Dede Westbrook vs. HOU
  27. Mohamed Sanu @TB
  28. Chris Hogan @PIT
  29. Corey Coleman vs. BAL
  30. Jarvis Landry @BUF
  31. Mike Wallace @CLE
  32. Rishard Matthews @SF
  33. Kelvin Benjamin vs. MIA
  34. Tyrell Williams @KC
  35. Paul Richardson vs. LAR


Brandin Cooks has been a disappointment over the past two weeks, but the Steelers secondary has allowed five different wide receivers to record catches over 20 yards over their last three games. Joe Haden might be back, but he isn’t at his best matching up against speed. That puts Cooks in a great spot to bounce-back.


  1. Rob Gronkiwski @PIT
  2. Zach Ertz @NYG
  3. Jimmy Graham vs. LAR
  4. Delanie Walker @SF
  5. Travis Kelce vs. LAC
  6. Hunter Henry @KC
  7. Jared Cook vs. DAL
  8. Jason Witten @OAK
  9. Vernon Davis vs. ARI
  10. Evan Engram vs. PHI
  11. Eric Ebron vs. CHI
  12. Charles Clay vs. MIA
  13. Greg Olsen vs. GB
  14. Ricky Seals-Jones @ WAS
  15. Ben Watson @CLE
  16. Adam Shahean @DET
  17. Jesse James vs. NE
  18. Cameron Brate vs. ATL
  19. O.J. Howard vs. ATL
  20. Austin Hooper, @TB


Eric Ebron isn’t an exciting option, but he has provided a floor of around seven or eight points in PPR leagues over the past five weeks. He showed off his ceiling last week against the Bucs, so plugging him in as a late waiver-wire TE is a decent option in desperation.
