Ravens’ Joe Flacco is a Sneaky Fantasy Football Week 15 Play

Joe Flacco @ Cleveland Browns: Joe Flacco and this Ravens passing attack is starting to find a stride over the last couple of weeks. He now has had two consecutive games with two touchdowns, and in Fantasy Football Week 15, he will be facing a Browns secondary that is tied with the New York Giants for most passing touchdowns allowed. With the Browns offense playing well themselves, look for Flacco and the Ravens to stay balanced to be able to compete to win in this game. He could close in on 300 yards with at least two scores. In seasonal leagues, it is hard to imagine that you aren’t set at QB, but if you just lost Carson Wentz, Flacco could be worth a spot start. In DFS, Flacco could be a great cheap option at only $6,800 on FanDuel for the week.

Mike Davis vs. Los Angeles Rams: Mike Davis was given a shot in an injury-riddled Seahawks backfield, and he has certainly come to play. He has rushed for at least 60 yards in two straight games, and in this week’s matchup, he will be facing a Rams’ defense that among the league’s worst in points allowed to opposing running backs. If Davis gets another 16 rushes in this game, he will top 80 yards and likely score. If you are looking to fill your Flex position in Week 15, give Davis a shot to be that guy. In DFS, Davis is virtually free at only $5,800 on FanDuel. He may go overlooked, and that will allow you to spend up in other areas.

Wide Receiver

Dede Westbrook vs. Houston Texans: The much-hyped Dede Westbrook finally found his way into the end zone in Week 14, and seems to have entrenched himself as the guy in this Jaguars’ passing attack. In Week 15, he will be facing a Texans secondary that has been exploited over the course of the last month of the season. With Blake Bortles sporting a hot hand recently, I expect for Westbrook to have yet another good game. Look for him to finish with six catches for 95 yards and a score in this matchup, making him a viable option as a WR3. In Daily Fantasy, his price continues to rise, but at $5,700, he will easily exceed his value.

Tight End

Jesse James vs. New England Patriots: Jesse James had more catches last week (10) than he has had in over a month combined. Most owners will likely be hesitant to use him following such a huge game, but against the Patriots, you know that the Steelers will need to match them on points. Look for New England to focus a lot of attention on Antonio Brown, forcing Ben Roethlisberger to look for other options. James could be a big benefactor with an increase of targets. If you are streaming at the position during the Fantasy playoffs, you could do worse than James with this matchup. At only $5,200 on FanDuel, he will be a player that will go unnoticed by other owners as they fill out their lineups, allowing you to take advantage.

Kicker

Kai Forbath vs. Cincinnati Bengals: The Vikings offense continues to roll, and the Bengals defense will likely be missing key contributors yet again. All this adds up to the Vikings being able to put points on the board at will, making Kai Forbath worth a look as a streaming option in Week 15.

Defense

Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins: Jay Cutler on the road is usually a mistake waiting to happen. I expect for the Bills defense to create a lot of pressure on him, leading to a number of sacks and the inevitable two turnovers that he usually has each game. The Bills defense could be that streaming option in the Fantasy playoffs that help carry you to a win in Week 15.
