With the playoff run starting in most season-long fantasy football contests, it’s a nice opportunity for eliminated owners to focus on daily fantasy. These are some of the plays that I like in Week 15.
Matthew Stafford at NO – $7800
With multiple passing touchdowns in each of his last three games, Stafford gets the most favorable matchup of all. No team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks than the New Orleans Saints.
David Johnson at PHI – $6500
Amazingly, David Johnson’s price still hasn’t risen. He’s seeing voluminous workloads as the Cardinals’ featured back. His big day is coming and at price of just $6500, it’s worth seeing if that’s this week.
Charcandrick West at BAL – $5900
There are lots of nice cheap plays at running back but West sticks out at just $5900. The reports indicate that it’s likely that Spencer Ware misses this game, giving West the feature back duties again. In his feature back role, West averaged 23.2 in the three weeks before injuring his hamstring.
Larry Fitzgerald at PHI – $7200
Before seeing just six targets last week, Fitzgerald had seen at least 10 targets in five straight games. The volume will likely be there and so is the matchup. The Eagles have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.
Jeremy Maclin at BAL – $6700
The Ravens have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this year, including five touchdowns to Seahawks wide receivers last week. Maclin has been hot lately and couldn’t have drawn a more favorable matchup.
Michael Floyd at PHI – $6100
For just $6100, Michael Floyd is a nice play. As mentioned above, the Eagles have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Floyd has at least nine targets and a hundred receiving yards in three of his last four games, he’s a solid play this week.
Antonio Gates vs. MIA – $5800
With so many injuries at the wide receiver position, Antonio Gates is Philip Rivers’ only solid option left. Gates looked healthier last week and has a solid matchup against the Dolphins sieve-like defense.
Blair Walsh vs. CHI – $4600
At just $4600, Blair Walsh is a cheap option at kicker. Favored by Vegas, Walsh is a solid option.
Seattle Seahawks vs. CLE – $5400
The Seahawks defense has scored double digits in two straight games. This week they face Manziel’s Browns at home.
