DFS Week 15 Plays
We’re getting down to the nitty gritty my friends… You might be knocked out of your league by now, but luckily for you we still have DFS! Let’s get into some plays that should win us some money!
Premium Plays ($7,500 or more)
Raheem Mostert (SF) $7,500: Mostert has been on a tear lately with a rushing TD and over 13 fantasy points in each of the last three weeks. Along with his steeler play, it finally looks like Kyle Shanahan is ready to give him the lead roll in the backfield. We feared for the split backfield all season, but it finally looks like that’s coming to an end!
Ryan Tannehill (TEN) $7,600: He was our guy last week, and he did not disappoint… Tannehill has been unbelievable since taking over in Tennessee and that won't stop this week against a bottom tier pass defense.
Solid Starts ($6,000-$7,400)
Chris Carson (SEA) $7,400: Carson should have a monster week against the dead last rush defense. An unfortunate injury to Rashaad Penny means that Carson will have all of the work this week in Carolina. He’s my number one back this week… look for a huge day!
Darius Slayton (NYG) $6,300: Slayton emerged as a real threat for this Giants offense throughout the season. He’s totaled over 7 targets in each of the last four weeks, over 100 yards in 2 of the last four and a total of 4 TD’s in that span. Miami’s secondary has been torched lately giving up over a hundred yards and at least one touchdown to a receiver in each of the last four weeks… It looks like the stars are lining up for a huge Slayton day!
Cheap Plugs ($5,900 and under)
David Njoku (CLE) $5,500: Njoku was targeted four times in his return from injury last week hauling in three catches. It wasn’t the greatest showing, but im expecting his usage to go up with another week back under his belt, and it doesn't hurt he’s facing the worst defense against Tight ends in the league.
Philadelphia DEF $4,900: Plain and simple… They’re up against Washington.
