If you’re still playing in week 15 it means you probably have a pretty solid starting lineup. Still you may find yourself in a bind at tight end or needing a DST to stream this week. Or maybe you’ve been playing the streaming game all season with great success and need to keep it rolling in week 15. Whatever your reason here are some options to help you continue on in your league’s playoffs and ride into the championship.
Sam Bradford, MIN
Bradford is coming off one of his best games of the season throwing for 292 yards and a td with no interceptions on the road in Jacksonville. Now he gets a Colts defense at home ranked 5th worst against fantasy QB’s. The Colts are allowing opposing QB’s to score over 20 points and average almost 2 TD’s per game. Bradford doesn’t offer a huge ceiling but against a brutal Colts secondary he should have a nice, safe floor.
Trevor Siemian, DEN
Siemian is averaging over 40 attempts in his last 5 starts and is ranked 5th in points per game for QB’s over that stretch. This week he gets a New England defense that is ranked 19th against the position allowing over 19 points per game. Last week at Tennessee Siemian threw for 334 yards marking his second straight game throwing for over 300 yards. Being at home should help as well as quarterbacks tend to perform better at home.
Charles Clay, BUF
Coming off a 3-52-1 game in week 14, Clay gets a great matchup against a Browns team allowing the second most points to tight ends. The Browns are one of only 3 teams to give up over 10 points to the position and have allowed 10 touchdowns on the year. Clay should be a threat to score again in week 15.
Jermaine Gresham, ARI
Over his last 3 games, Gresham has seen 10, 6 and 7 targets. He’s also seen 3 red zone targets including 1 touchdown. With Michael Floyd likely facing a suspension for a DUI arrest Gresham could be in line for even more work in week 15. His opponent, the Saints, rank 17th against the position. Gresham makes for a solid streamer for those suffering due to injuries at the position.
Atlanta v San Francisco
Coming off a huge game in week 14, Atlanta gets another great matchup at home against San Francisco. The 49ers turn the ball over 1.5 times per game and allow almost 3 sacks. Opposing DST’s are averaging just over 10 points against them. The Falcons are 13.5 point favorites at home which is usually a great sign for a DST. Start them with confidence this week.
Houston v Jacksonville
Houston’s defense has battled injuries all year and has been a fantasy disappointment after being one of the top units last year. They got a big boost in week 14 with the return of Jadeveon Clowney who made a key sack to help seal the win against the Colts. This week they are home against a Jacksonville team averaging over 2 turnovers and 2 sacks per game. Favored by 6.5 with a game total of just 39.5 the Texans make a great play this week.
