Only two weeks left for most leagues and it is now crunch time! Time for some Week 15 Fantasy last minute starts and sits.
Joe Flacco QB – Philadelphia at Baltimore
Joe Flacco has been playing very well and this is a must-win at home against an Eagles team that struggles on the road.
Kirk Cousins QB – Carolina at Washington
Cousins is another guy who has been lighting it up. The passing attack is deep and potent and they need to win.
Kenneth Dixon RB – Philadelphia at Baltimore
Dixon has essentially passed Terrance West as the starting back and has been getting more touches. What makes him more valuable are the number of catches he gets.
Bilal Powell RB – Miami at New York Jets
This is not a guarantee but Matt Forte’s knee injury is something to watch. Powell can catch out of the backfield and should be the focal point of the offense. Miami also has given up 100 yards to a rusher six games in a row.
Emmanuel Sanders WR – New England at Denver
Sanders has put up good numbers the last couple of weeks and plays well when Trevor Siemian is under center. The Patriots don’t have the greatest secondary and at home, should put up a sizable amount of points.
Marquise Lee WR – Jacksonville at Houston
Lee has taken over the title of most productive receiver on the Jaguars, especially with Allen Robinson hobbled with a leg injury. He should see plenty of targets and is a solid play.
Kyle Rudolph TE – Indianapolis at Minnesota
The Vikings need to win this and at home against the Colts, Rudolph will likely be Sam Bradford’s first read. He’s got great hands and should see several balls come his way.
Matthew Stafford QB – Detroit at New York Giants
With the injury and a big December road game, Stafford isn’t a safe start. Look elsewhere.
Doug Martin RB – Tampa at Dallas
Dallas hasn’t been allowing a lot of yardage against running backs and Martin hasn’t played very well lately.
Mark Ingram RB – New Orleans at Arizona
Ingram has been really struggling and Tim Hightower has gotten more carries as of late, so look to replace him this week. Too risky of a play.
Start at your own risk – Aaron Rodgers QB – Green Bay at Chicago
He should do well, but with the hamstring injury and in frigid conditions, he could be a risk. The upside is, the Packers don’t have a great running game and they’ll need Rodgers to play well.
Start at your own risk – Tom Brady QB – New England at Denver
The Broncos always have great pass defense and at home, they’re even better. Brady should be able to still get points, but this is a little scary.
