John Hazelet's Daily Fantasy: Week 15
Matt Ryan 8500 vs 49ers: 22 FDP’s per game for this potential MVP candidate is enough for me to start him. Throw in the fact that he is playing a 1-12 team that is coming across the country to play makes Ryan a no brainer.
Aaron Rodgers 8500 @ Bears: Rodgers and the Packers might be peaking at the right time and I want to be sure to be a part of that. I like him for 20+ FDP’s this week.
Derek Carr 7900 @ Chargers: With 10 days to sit and think about their prime time loss to KC, I think Carr is ready for a big week. The Raiders are playing for very important seeding in the AFC playoff picture, my bet is that they will come ready to pay.
David Johnson 9800 vs Saints: Expensive but worth it. Johnson is a beast. The Cardinals and Saints are both basically playing out the string but I think Johnson could put up some big numbers: Keep in mind, Johnson has more receiving yards this year than Brandon Marshall, Dez Bryant and DeAndre Hopkins
Le'Veon Bell 9400 @ Bengals: Again, expensive but worth it. Bell put up insane numbers last week. I do not think he will match the amazing 49.8 FDP’s from last week but I do think he could put up around 25 in this heated rivalry game.
DeMarco Murray 7400 @ Chiefs: The Titans have what might be the best running game in the NFL all things considered. Murray is the focal point and will continue to be this week. I look for 20+ FDP’s this week against a shaky run defense.
Isaiah Crowell 5500 @ Bills: The Bills have had a tough time stopping the run and Crowell has put up some decent numbers in recent weeks. I think this is a winnable game for the Browns and I think Crowell would be the key in the Browns potential 1st win of the season.
Jordy Nelson 7700 @ Bears: Jordy has been a hot hand averaging 20+ FDP’s over the last 2 games. I think he can play to his average this week making him great value at 7700.
Amari Cooper 7400 vs Chargers: Cooper has had an up and down fantasy year. He was very hot early but has been hit or miss the rest of the season. I like him to put up a solid 15-20 FDP’s this week.
Stefon Diggs 6300 @ Colts: Diggs has been fighting some nagging injuries this year and has been over shadowed by Adam Thielen. I think he can get healthy against the Colts this week, I just wish it was someone other than Sam Bradford throwing him the ball.
Taylor Gabriel 5800 vs 49ers: I love the way the Falcons have used his speed both as a WR and on some running plays. I think he should see a pretty good amount of touches this week against the 49ers and he is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.
Travis Kelce 6900 vs Titans: Kelce has basically been a WR1 this year and I think he will see the majority of the targets in the KC passing game. The Titans are ranked 31 against the pass.. I like those odds.
Martellus Bennett 5500 vs Broncos: This will be a very under the radar play going up against the “No fly zone” defense of the Broncos. I just feel Brady will find creative ways to get him the ball especially in the red zone.
Matt Ryan 8500 with Taylor Gabriel 5800 and Matt Bryant 5100 vs 49ers: This stack has some decent potential. Gabriel should see an increase in targets with Jones out. The 49ers traveling across the country at 1-12 could mean really big things for this trio.
Derek Carr 7900 with Latavius Murray 6800 and Amari Cooper 7400 @ Chargers: I like this to be a high scoring game and I think the Raiders come out on top.
