It’s the playoffs! If you’re reading this, you’re probably among the select few that have maneuvered through injuries and COVID, to put a competitive team on the field each week. Congrats! The waiver wire has come and gone. You’ve spent your FAAB dollars. It’s time to dig deep and look at the matchups to decide how to construct your starting lineups for NFL Week 15 of the fantasy football season. We’ve got you covered, friends. Let’s get into the top Week 15 sleepers and streamers!
Week 15 Sleepers and Streamers
Davis Mills (Houston Texans)
I’ve got to be honest. The threat of COVID ravaging my roster seems more and more likely these days. I’ve started to consider starting inferior players on my roster, simply because they’re playing games earlier in the week, and I want to ensure that I get points. I would hate having to wait until late Sunday/Monday, only to find out that someone tested positive and now I have to scramble. If you’re of the same mind, take a look at Davis Mills. He’s playing for his job next year, so they’re going to air it out to see what they have in him. Further, the Jags just fired Urban Meyer, so there’s a legitimate chance they could be even more dysfunctional than they’ve already shown. I like Mills to throw for 300+ yards and multiple TDs.
Chase Edmonds (Arizona Cardinals)
The Cards are a team on a mission. They’re one of the best teams in the NFC and they get to take on the lowly Detroit Lions. I’m expecting a positive game script for the running game, and that will benefit Chase Edmonds who is expecting to be activated from IR and get game action. On top of that, there’s a legitimate chance that James Connor and his 16 TDs will sit from suffering an ankle injury last week. Edmonds as the lead back is a no-brainer.
Josh Palmer (Las Angeles Chargers)
Palmer went for 5 receptions on 7 targets for 66 yards and a TD last week. In fairness, Keenan Allen was out on the COVID close contact list. He’ll be back for this week’s game against the Chiefs, but the Chiefs are looking like the dangerous team that we’ve come to expect, after dropping 40+ on the Raiders last week. That means we should expect a shootout. Palmer will certainly be on the field in four wide receiver sets, and some red zone packages. I expect both Palmer and Guyton to get targets, not just Allen and Williams. Herbert has no problem spreading the ball around and airing it out. Palmer is worth the dart throw.
