Week 15 Fantasy Rankings


QUARTERBACK:

  1. Aaron Rodgers (@ CHI)
  2. Tom Brady (@ DEN)
  3. Matt Ryan (vs SF)
  4. Russell Wilson (vs LA)
  5. Kirk Cousins (vs CAR)
  6. Derek Carr (@ SD)
  7. Ben Roethlisberger (@ CIN)
  8. Cam Newton (@ WAS)
  9. Philip Rivers (vs OAK)
  10. Marcus Mariota (@ KC)
  11. Tyrod Taylor (vs CLE)
  12. Drew Brees (@ ARI)
  13. Andrew Luck (@ MIN)
  14. Dak Prescott (vs TB)
  15. Joe Flacco (vs PHI)
  16. Alex Smith (vs TEN)
  17. Jameis Winston (@ DAL)
  18. Carson Palmer (vs NO)
  19. Matthew Stafford (@ NYG)
  20. Sam Bradford (vs IND)
  21. Andy Dalton (vs PIT)
  22. Colin Kaepernick (@ ATL)
  23. Trevor Siemian (vs NE)
  24. Eli Manning (vs DET)
  25. Matt Barkley (vs GB)

 

Red-hot Aaron Rodgers is the #1 quarterback despite battling hamstring and calf issues… Tom Brady drops all the way to #2 with a trip to Denver; he just put up 400 yards against Baltimore’s league-best defense… Matt Ryan is an elite option whether or not Julio Jones (toe) plays… It’s safe to say Russell Wilson won’t be throwing five interceptions against the Rams, who just fired their head coach… Derek Carr should bounce back in a potential shootout with the Chargers… Ben Roethlisberger needs to stay in lineups after disappointing fantasy owners in Week 14… The same cannot be said for Drew Brees and Andrew Luck, who play in Arizona and in Minnesota respectively; Brees has zero touchdowns and three interceptions in two straight games… Marcus Mariota should complete more than six passes this week.

Congratulations if you had or survived Le’Veon Bell last week… The only thing holding Thomas Rawls back is the game flow; Seattle should easily handle the Rams this Thursday night… People are crazy if they still aren’t ranking Latavius Murray as an RB1; dude is averaging over 16 fantasy points per game since returning from injury in Week 7… Carlos Hyde gets a great matchup after shredding the Jets last week… Tevin Coleman is fast; he might break a couple against the Niners… Jay Ajayi will probably see some stacked boxes with Matt Moore at quarterback, but he’s talented enough to remain an RB2… Ty Montgomery is a running back according to Mike McCarthy; he had 19 touches for 126 yards in the first game versus Chicago… Mark Ingram is second in the league with 5.1 yards per carry, but his uncertain (and puzzling) usage makes him hard to trust in a tough matchup… Hopefully Jeff Fisher’s firing means Todd Gurley won’t be running in a “middle school offense,” but it probably won’t matter in Seattle… Frank Gore has a tough matchup with the Vikings, and while the Colts should feed him in a must-win, the Vikings will be playing hard in a game they have to win, too… I have a feeling Dion Lewis wasn’t used much on Monday night so that he will be unleashed versus Denver; he and James White are both FLEX options… Kenneth Farrow and Ronnie Hillman will split work with Melvin Gordon (hip) likely out this week… Bilal Powell is a great pickup if Matt Forte (knee) is out.

Antonio Brown had just 39 yards in the first meeting with the Bengals, so he’s still seeking revenge for last year’s playoff game… If Julio Jones (toe) is active, he’s probably safe to use in fantasy lineups; the Falcons wouldn’t throw him out there in an easy game if there was risk… Jordy Nelson should make amends for his nine-yard game against the Bears earlier this season, as Chicago won’t be giving Jordy all the attention with Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery, and Randall Cobb all catching double-digit passes in the first game; Adams and Montgomery are both top-15 plays, while Cobb is just a weak FLEX… If A.J. Green is back, he is immediately a WR1; he kills Pittsburgh… Don’t be afraid of Julian Edelman in Denver; he should approach 15 targets again… Michael Crabtree should benefit if Casey Hayward is on Amari Cooper, but both are on the WR1/WR2 borderline… Sammy Watkins isn’t 100%, but he deserves a spot in your lineup versus Cleveland… Jeremy Maclin hurt fantasy owners last week, but he was on the field for the majority of the game, which will be the case this week; Maclin and Tyreek Hill are both solid WR2 against the Titans 32nd ranked defense against fantasy wideouts… Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace are both good plays against the beatable Philly corners… Demaryius Thomas has been good recently, but he was shut down by New England in both games last season… T.Y. Hilton goes all the way to a FLEX with a matchup in Minnesota… Brandin Cooks could see Patrick Peterson this Sunday, plus the game is on the road… It will be interesting to see how much Alshon Jeffery plays in his return from suspension; he’s worth a spot in lineups for those hurting at wide receiver or FLEX… If you have Allen Robinson, DeAndre Hopkins, Brandon Marshall, or Kelvin Benjamin, there’s a good chance you aren’t still alive in your fantasy league.

 

TIGHT END:

  1. Travis Kelce (vs TEN)
  2. Martellus Bennett (@ DEN)
  3. Jimmy Graham (vs LA)
  4. Greg Olsen (@ WAS)
  5. Tyler Eifert (vs PIT)
  6. Kyle Rudolph (vs IND)
  7. Ladarius Green (@ CIN)
  8. Antonio Gates (vs OAK)
  9. Jordan Reed (vs CAR)
  10. Cameron Brate (@ DAL)
  11. Delanie Walker (@ KC)
  12. Zach Ertz (@ BAL)
  13. Eric Ebron (@ NYG)
  14. Coby Fleener (@ ARI)
  15. Jared Cook (@ CHI)
  16. Charles Clay (vs CLE)
  17. Ryan Griffin (vs JAC)
  18. Jack Doyle (@ MIN)
  19. Hunter Henry (vs OAK)
  20. Gary Barnidge (@ BUF)
  21. Jason Witten (vs TB)
  22. Dwayne Allen (@ MIN)
  23. Garrett Celek (@ ATL)
  24. Jermaine Gresham (vs NO)
  25. Vernon Davis (vs CAR)

 

Travis Kelce could become the first tight end ever to have five straight 100-yard games… Martellus Bennett should step right into Gronk’s role versus Denver, which was lines of 6/88/1 and 8/144/1 last season… If somehow Ladarius Green or Kyle Rudolph is available, they should be started over Jordan Reed, who caught just one pass last week as he fights through his shoulder injury… Delanie Walker has a tough matchup with Kansas City, but he hangs onto TE1 status… Zach Ertz also has a tough matchup, but he’s come on over the past two weeks… Coby Fleener needs to stay out of lineups if possible, especially on the road verus the Cardinals… Jared Cook is ranked low because Green Bay didn’t throw to their tight ends in the first meeting with Chicago… Former Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell should be the Niners main receiving tight end with Vance McDonald done for the season.

 

DEFENSE:

  1. Seattle Seahawks (vs LA)
  2. Baltimore Ravens (vs PHI)
  3. Minnesota Vikings (vs IND)
  4. Houston Texans (vs JAC)
  5. Miami Dolphins (@ NYJ)
  6. Buffalo Bills (vs CLE)
  7. Kansas City Chiefs (vs TEN)
  8. New England Patriots (@ DEN)
  9. Green Bay Packers (@ CHI)
  10. Denver Broncos (vs NE)
  11. Arizona Cardinals (vs NO)
  12. Pittsburgh Steelers (@ CIN)
  13. Jacksonville Jaguars (@ HOU)
  14. Detroit Lions (@ NYG)
  15. Atlanta Falcons (vs SF)

 

Good luck if you are playing against Seattle this week… Baltimore could have a let-down coming off a game in Foxborough, but the Eagles are a great matchup… Minnesota faces Andrew Luck, but the bad Indy offensive line will be without their best offensive lineman… Blake Bortles didn’t throw a pick last week; he will this week against HoustonMiami is forcing turnovers like crazy and will get Bryce Petty this Saturday night… Denver barely cracks the top-ten with Tom Brady coming to town.
