Last week was a successful one. I was on Saquon Barkley and Amari Cooper, specifically, which led to a profitable Sunday. This week, we have an 11-game slate as two games are being played on Saturday. With just three weeks left in the regular season, some teams are fighting for a playoff spot, making this week crucial. Let’s dive into the matchups and discover some of the best DFS options for week 15.
Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) vs. NE $8,600
A lot of points are expected in this game. Vegas has set this game as a 54 point total. In a game with plenty of offensive stars and sub-par defenses, it should be the shootout of the week. Pittsburgh has some of the best weapons through the air in the NFL and the Patriots will be hard pressed to slow them down. Ben is at home, where is numbers are much better, facing a good offense on the other side of the ball where they will need to put up a lot of points. He is expensive but should pay off value, with ease.
Derek Carr (OAK) @ CIN $5,400
Oakland has been the laughing stock of the NFL all season long. However, they have been able to put up points recently. Carr is coming off two solid performances against the Chiefs and Steelers. This Sunday, he will have the pleasure of feasting on a horrible Bengals defense. Cincinnati has been bleeding fantasy points against and is among the worst teams against quarterbacks. In a game which should be pretty sloppy, Derek Carr can easily match the production of his last two games and give us around 20 DraftKings points at a very reasonable price tag.
Others to consider: Tom Brady, Marcus Mariota, Kirk Cousins
Chris Carson (SEA) @ SF $6,300
It has been no secret that the Seahawks like to run the ball. With Penny out, Carson should, once again, get the bulk of the carries. Coming off a game where he received 22 rushing attempts, Carson should go somewhat overlooked in a great matchup. He has a high floor with immense upside in a game Seattle should control from start to finish.
Joe Mixon (CIN) vs. OAK $6,100
Although there are plenty of great options to pay up for, Joe Mixon is completely mispriced this week. Oakland is terrible against the run and Mixon should see another 25+ touch game. Last week, the Bengals running back saw 26 carries and six targets. He turned his opportunities into 27.8 DraftKings points. If he can produce a similar type of performance, that would be good for a 4.5X return. As a pivot off Saquon and Zeke, Mixon has similar upside at a lower ownership and price.
Others to consider: Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliot, David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, Jaylen Samuels
JuJu Smith-Schuster (PIT) vs. NE $7,800
JuJu is the 1B receiver in Pittsburgh and has produced more receptions and yards than his superstar teammate, Antonio Brown. While Brown has twice as many touchdowns, JuJu has the big-play upside that few receivers can match. The Patriots usually try to take out opposing teams top offensive weapon, in which case should be Antonio Brown, leaving Smith-Schuster with a lot more man coverage. If all things are equal between the two stud wide-outs, JuJu at least gives us $800 of savings.
TY Hilton (IND) vs. DAL $6,800
The Colts have a tough matchup this week, against the stout Dallas Cowboys defense. However, playing at home neutralizes a lot of expectations. On the fast track in Indy, TY Hilton is always capable of breaking the slate. There are few players in the NFL who have the down-field speed Hilton posses, which makes him a great GPP option any week. Andrew Luck has had a lot more time in the pocket, thanks to an improved offensive line, making him one of the most dangerous passers in the league. I think this game could be a lot higher scoring than people might think and Hilton will be a reason why.
Others to consider: Julian Edelman, Adam Thielen, Calvin Ridley, Kenny Stills, Donte Moncrief
George Kittle (SF) vs. SEA $7,400
He is expensive, which is why he is a GPP option. George Kittle has posted an incredible season so far, with a 69-1103-4 stat line. Coming off a 7-210-1 outing last week, we know what his upside is. Seattle is dealing with key injuries to their linebackers and safeties this week, which should open up the middle of the field for some big plays. Paying up for the tight end is not a popular strategy which should keep his ownership percentage lower than it should be.
Jared Cook (OAK) @ CIN $5,600
I wrote him up last week and he did not disappoint. Cook now has 14-216-1 over the last two weeks and will look to build off a great season against the Bengals. As a great stack with Derek Carr, this game has sneaky shootout potential in a game which features two really bad defenses. If Cincinnati can put up points on offense, Derek Carr will need to throw the ball. With the lack of big-time playmakers, Jared Cook becomes the default, number one receiving option.
