Carson Palmer (6000): Wow, did last week’s game start off horribly for Palmer. He was able to salvage his absolutely horrendous performance by tossing a couple of touchdowns late. This week he has a great matchup against the Saints who rank 21st against opposing QBs. Despite his performance last week Palmer has really picked it up over the past couple of months. Over the last 6 games he has averaged just over 20 points per contest. He should surpass that this week against the weak New Orleans secondary.
Tyrod Taylor (5700): This is purely about the matchup. The Browns are so damn bad if you constantly streamed quarterbacks against them you would have the 6th highest scoring player in fantasy football. While Taylor has not been playing particularly well over the past month, don’t let that stop you from playing him this weekend.
Eli Manning (5600): Manning had a rough week against the Cowboys defense, having a 68 yard TD pass to OBJ. Other than that, he threw for 120 yards and an INT. He has a great matchup this week. Though Detroit has played better defensively, they are still one of the worst teams against the pass in the league. They are allowing just over 17 points per game to opposing QBs. Look for Manning to top that.
Tevin Coleman (5000): Coleman is back. He had 2 TDs last week in a blowout that sent Jeff Fisher packing. This week he has an even better matchup against the worst run defense in the league. The best part of playing Coleman is he gets the goal line carries and benefits from his team visiting this area of the field often. He is also a great receiving back so expect to see Coleman surpassing 20 fantasy points on the day.
LaGarrette Blount (5000): The man cannot be stopped. He just surpassed 1000 yards for the first time since his rookie year and now has 14 rushing touchdowns. Last week he was able to get up over 70 yards rushing and reached the end zone once against the best run defense in football. This week he faces a Broncos defense that has struggled against the run but is by far the best against the pass. Look for Blount to get heavy usage and have a big game for you this weekend.
Kenneth Farrow (4400): Farrow looks like he will be a great spot play for a cheap price. He is facing the Raiders who have struggled on defense all year. After Gordon left the game with a hip injury, Farrow was targeted 6 times and ran the ball 16 times. All together he gave anyone who was crazy enough to start him a little under 14 points against a decent Panthers run defense. The Raiders have allowed at least 1 touchdown to opposing running backs over the past 4 games, so make sure you get Farrow in your lineup for this weekend.
Tyreek Hill (5700): This man is a freak. He is a threat to score anytime that he touches the ball. Hill has averaged just under 20 points per game over the past 5 games, and Tennessee has been struggling to stop anyone defensively. They are now the worst in the league against opposing receivers, allowing an average of 35 fantasy points per game. That is nearly 6 points more than the league average. He is a necessity in your daily fantasy lineup this week.
Jordan Matthews (5400): Matthews has been the closest thing to a reliable target that Wentz has. He has seen 10 or more targets in all but one game since week 8. While he does drop the ball at times, it does not deter Wentz from throwing his way often. This week he faces the Ravens who are phenomenal against the run but have struggled against the run. The Ravens are ranked 26th in fantasy against opposing wide outs look for the Eagles to try and expose that secondary this weekend.
Steve Smith Sr (5300): The Eagles have really struggled with stopping opposing wrs, burners especially. Last week they let up an 80 yard TD to one of the fastest receivers in the league, Desean Jackson. Smith is known for beating teams over the top so look for him to be targeted deep down the field throughout the game. Look for Smith to have a big role in the game plan for this weekend as the Eagles are much better at stopping the run than they are the pass.
Ladarius Green (3700): Green had a rough game against the Bills last week where he only caught 2 of his 6 targets for just over 20 yards. Don’t let that performance worry you though. He was not alone in struggling as they were playing in bad weather conditions. That and Le’Veon Bell took the game into his own hands and wouldn’t share with anyone else. This week Green has a great matchup against Cincy which is 30th against opposing TEs. Green has clearly become the starting tight end since coming back from an injury so look for him to see a lot of snaps. He should be closer to his numbers from the week before where he went for over 100 and a TD.
Charles Clay (2800): Clay has been quiet for a majority of the year. He is reliable for about 5 catches and 30-50 yards per game. So why would you start him this week? Simple, they are playing the Cleveland Browns. The Browns are dead last in fantasy against TEs, allowing close to 15 points per game to opposing TEs.
Green Bay Packers (3200): The Packers defense has been playing surprisingly well over the last 3 games, averaging just over 12 fantasy points per game. This was against the likes of Houston, Seattle and Philly. Now they get to play the Bears who are on their 3rd string quarterback. This is a great play for anyone looking to stream a defense in week 15.
New England Patriots (2800): The Patriots are going into Denver to play a struggling offense. That’s all you should need to know. This is the second best scoring defense in the league and they feed on inexperienced quarterbacks. This should be a big day for the Pats defense.
