Week 15 NFL DFS Sleepers


Kirk Cousins ($6,200 DK – $7,800 FD)

Kirk is coming off a rough road trip against New England and Seattle where he only managed to put up 17 total points and barely reached 200 yards passing in each game. He should have a friendlier sparring match this week when the Dolphins come to town. Miami has only held one team under 27 points in their last 4 games (the Bills) and in that stretch teams averaged 417 yards of total offense.

Baker Mayfield ($5,800 DK – $7,500 FD)

Both Denver and Cleveland come into this game winning 3 out of their last 4 and the Browns seemed to have finally turned the corner ever since parting ways with Hue Jackson. In the Broncos last 4 games they have only held 1 team under 305 yards passing, conversely in their last 7 they have only had 1 team rush for over 100 yards. This looks like it’s going to be a game that is won on Baker’s arm and not Chubbs’s legs.

Running Back

Jaylen Samuels ($5,200 DK – $5,500 FD)

Despite not accomplishing much on the ground last week Samuels ended up with 7 catches for 64 yards. It looks like Conner might miss another game and if he does Jaylen will most likely hog most of the snaps yet again.

Gus Edwards ($4,400 DK – $6,300 FD)

Gus Bus continues to get fed even though he saw his lowest amount of carries in his last 4 games at 16. Him and Lamar Jackson should run all over this Tampa Bay defense that hasn’t held a team to less than 100 yards rushing since the Falcons back in week 6.

Chris Ivory ($3,600 DK – $4,500 FD)

LeSean McCoy is dealing with hamstring issues and could face the possibility of sitting out the remainder of the Bills season. In the only game Ivory has started this season he saw 20 carries and caught 3 passes on 4 targets for 126 total yards.

Elijah McGuire ($3,400 DK – $4,600 FD)

In Isaiah Crowell’s absence last week McGuire saw 17 carries and 3 catches for a total of 83 yards and a touchdown. Crowell has been ruled out again this week against the Texans so it looks like it could be another game where McGuire sees a lot of action.

Wide Receiver

Robert Foster ($4,300 DK – $5,400 FD)

In his last 4 games Foster has turned a measly 13 catches into 330 yards (which comes out to roughly 25 yards per catch). It seems like Josh Allen and Robert Foster have started to click and are exposing defenses, something that hasn’t happened in Buffalo in some time.

Jordy Nelson ($4,200 DK – $5,000 FD)

This game is officially the “What Happened to These Teams?” Bowl. Both Cincinnati and Oakland find themselves at the bottom of their respective divisions after starting the season with decently high expectations. Jordy is coming off of back-to-back games with 18 total targets and 16 catches with 145 yards. This game is going to be ugly and I won’t be watching but I’m sure a few stars will rise to the occasion.

Curtis Samuel ($4,000 DK – $5,700 FD)

The New Orleans Saints have only held 1 team all season to under 279 yards passing so I expect this game to be high-octane. Curtis Samuel has been targeted 19 times in Carolina’s last 2 games and only caught just over half of those passes (10). Even with the poor reception rate he has managed to turn that into 168 yards.

Tight End

Vernon Davis ($3,200 DK – $5,300 FD)

It took all the way until week 14 this year, but Jordan Reed might be out for the season. It’s finally that time of the year where we all remember that Vernon Davis used to be one of the best tight ends in the league. He’s got a tough match-up this week with Jacksonville but when Reed is off of the field the volume is typically there for Davis.

Ian Thomas ($2,700 DK – $4,900 FD)

It’s interesting to see Thomas’s price so low after catching 9 passes on 11 targets for 77 yards last week, especially when they are coming into a potential shoot-out with the Saints — yet here we are. New Orleans has been superb against the run this year so I’m guessing Cam and the Panther’s are gonna have to spray the ball all over the yard if they want to win this one.
