  1. Patrick Mahomes, KC QB at SEA

  4. Drew Brees, NO QB vs. PIT
  5. Deshaun Watson, HOU QB at PHI

  8. Dak Prescott, DAL QB vs. TB
  9. Aaron Rodgers, GB QB at NYJ
  10. Matt Ryan, ATL QB at CAR
  11. Josh Allen, BUF QB at NE
  12. Mitch Trubisky, CHI QB at SF
  13. Lamar Jackson, BAL QB at LAC
  14. Jared Goff, LAR QB at ARI
  15. Cam Newton, CAR QB vs. ATL

Matt Ryan had one of the best performances at the QB position in week 15 against a tough Cardinals secondary. Ryan threw for 231 yards and 2 TDs while adding 18 yards and another TD on the ground. This was a solid game for Ryan especially agaisnt such a strong defense. Ryan will face the Carolina Panthers in week 16 who are the 12th worst defense against the pass on a passing yards per game basis. This will be another solid week for Ryan who will find himself as a lower end QB1 in week 16. Fantasy Projection: 253 yards 2 TDs

Jared Goff is surprising alot of fantasy owners in the playoffs and NOT in a good way. Goff has been miserable the last few weeks throwing for 0 TDs and 5 INTs in just the last 2 alone. It looks like the Rams passing game is really struggling without Cooper Kupp. I would hate to trust Goff in week 16 against the Cardinals who are the 5th best defense against the pass on a passing yards per game basis. Goff will be a QB2 in week 16 and is not a good option for your championship matchup. Fantasy Projection: 275 yards .5 TDs

Running Back
  1. Todd Gurley, LAR RB at ARI
  2. Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB vs. TB
  3. Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB vs. ATL
  4. Saquon Barkley, NYG RB at IND
  5. Joe Mixon, CIN RB vs. CLE
  6. Nick Chubb, CLE RB vs. CIN
  7. Chris Carson, SEA RB vs. KC
  8. Alvin Kamara, NO RB vs. PIT
  9. Dalvin Cook, MIN RB at DET
  10. Derrick Henry, TEN RB vs. WAS
  11. Marlon Mack, IND RB vs. NYG
  12. David Johnson, ARI RB vs. LAR
  13. Melvin Gordon, LAC RB vs. BAL
  14. Philip Lindsay, DEN RB at OAK
  15. James Conner, PIT RB at NO

Saquon Barkley has been other worldly this year at the RB position, but in week 15 he definitely disappointed. Barkley rushed for 31 yards and caught 4 passes for 25 yards against the Titans. This was a very difficult game to watch with extremely bad weather that really led to a low offensive productive game (besides Derrick Henry). I think this game was an anomaly for Barkley and he will have a bounce back week in week 16 against the Colts. The Colts are actually the 8th best defense against the run, but I have to trust the talent here and have faith in Barkley. Fantasy Projection: 85 yards rushing 1 TD 5 reception 45 yards .5 TD

Derrick Henry AGAIN?!?! Henry had one of the best weeks at the RB position in week 15 after doing the same thing in week 14. It looks like the Titans are going to continue to feed Henry after he rushed 33 times for 170 yards and 2 TDs in week 15 against the Giants. Henry is taking on the Redskins this week who are in the middle of the road against the run. As long as Henry gets this big of a workload he will continue to be at least a low end RB1 for fantasy. Fantasy Projection: 75 yard 1 TD

  2. Antonio Brown, PIT WR at NO
  3. Julio Jones, ATL WR at CAR
  4. Tyreek Hill, KC WR at SEA
  5. Davante Adams, GB WR at NYJ
  6. Michael Thomas, NO WR vs. PIT
  7. Juju Smith-Schuster, PIT WR at NO
  8. Amari Cooper, DAL WR vs. TB
  9. Adam Thielen, MIN WR at DET
  10. T.Y. Hilton, IND WR vs. NYG
  11. Stefon Diggs, MIN WR at DET
  12. Mike Evans, TB WR at DAL
  13. Brandin Cooks, LAR WR at ARI
  14. Robert Woods, LAR WR at ARI
  15. Tyler Lockett, SEA WR vs. KC
  16. Alshon Jeffery, PHI WR vs. HOU
  17. Julian Edelman, NE WR vs. BUF
  18. Kenny Golladay, DET WR vs. MIN
  19. Jarvis Landry, CLE WR vs. CLE
  20. Robby Anderson, NYJ WR vs. GB
  21. Doug Baldwin, SEA WR vs. KC
  22. Corey Davis, TEN WR vs WAS
  23. Josh Gordon, NE WR vs. BUF
  24. Robert Foster, BUF WR at NE
  25. Allen Robinson, CHI WR at SF

Kenny Golladay had a surprisingly big week in week 15 against the Bills. Golladay had 7 receptions for 146 yards in week 15 which was a significant uptick from the 55 total yards he had over the 2 prior weeks combined. This was a great showing from Golladay who we know has the talent, but has had trouble with targets. I still see Golladay as a WR2 in most leagues until he continues to show us something more. Fantasy Projection: 5 receptions 65 yards .5 TD

Robert Foster has burst onto the fantasy scene the past few weeks with over 94 yards in 4 of the past 5 weeks and 2 TDs over that span. Foster looks to be a favorite boom bust play option for Josh Allen and makes for a great Flex play to low end WR2 in most fantasy formats. This week Foster will face the Patriots who are 9th worst against the pass on a passing yards per game basis. This is a good matchup for Foster which makes him a nice low end WR2 option. Fantasy Projection: 4 receptions 45 yards .5 TD

  1. Travis Kelce, KC TE at SEA
  2. Zach Ertz, PHI TE vs. HOU
  3. George Kittle, SF TE vs. CHI
  4. Jared Cook, OAK TE vs. DEN
  5. Eric Ebron, IND TE vs. NYG

  10. Vance McDonald, PIT TE at NO
  11. Trey Burton, CHI TE at SF
  12. Austin Hooper, ATL TE at CAR

Zach Ertz has had 2 very down games over the past 2 weeks going for only 60 yards and no TDs over that span. Ertz will rebound this week against the Texans just in time for the Fantasy Championships. Ertz is the 2nd ranked tight end this week. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 65 yards 1 TD
