Raiders Derek Carr, Falcons Ito Smith Sneaky Week 15 Plays

Raiders Derek Carr, Falcons Ito Smith Sneaky Week 15 Plays
Brandon Murchison December 12, 2018 10:18AM EDT

Your sneaky Fantasy Football plays for Week 15

QB

Derek Carr @ Cincinnati Bengals

Coming off back-to-back above-average games, Derek Carr could be finding his groove as we enter the final stages of the 2018 season. This week, he draws a matchup against a Bengals defense that is currently one of the worst in the league in points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (21.76 Fantasy PPG). It seems as though the Bengals have quit on the season, while the Raiders are surprisingly continuing to try and win games. This could spell for an unexpected high-scoring game. Although Carr’s weapons have been depleted, he can still do damage with his dink-and-dunk ways to guys like Jared Cook. The running game will continue to be non-existent here meaning more of the scoring load will be placed on Carr’s shoulders. He should be up to the task and if you are in a bind and made it this far in your seasonal playoffs by streaming the position, Carr could be your guy in Week 15. In DFS, I could assure you that he will be one of the lower owned options at quarterback this week, giving you a leg up on the competition as you save money for other positions.

RB

Ito Smith vs. Arizona Cardinals

As the season wears down, Ito Smith’s usage is beginning to increase to the point where he could be in the Flex discussion for some owners. In Week 15, Smith will be getting the luxury of a matchup against one of Fantasy’s worst defenses in points allowed to running backs (25.14 Fantasy PPG). has out-carried Tevin Coleman in each of the last two games, and in what could be a blowout, you could see that yet again. I’m expecting to see plenty of Smith in the second half of this game, leading to plenty of scoring opportunities. Like I said, he should be in the discussion as a Flex play in this matchup that could help lead you to victory. In DFS, he’s a cheap option that could go overlooked, and is a player you can slide into your Flex that helps you build a strong roster in other areas.

WR

Curtis Samuel vs. New Orleans Saints

The snaps continue to rise, the targets and catches have become consistent over the last two weeks and now Curtis Samuel is starting to gain traction as a player you could slot into your starting lineups. Now understandably it’s a big gamble to attempt during the Fantasy playoffs, but one that could also help propel you into the championship game. This week, Samuel draws a Saints defense that is currently the worst in points allowed to the position (29.58 Fantasy PPG). The Saints have been struggling in recent weeks against slot receivers, which should be a good sign for Samuel in this game. NFC South games tend to be back and forth affairs as well, meaning that the game-script should be in favor of offenses here. Look for Samuel to have a strong enough game to allow him to be playable as a low-end WR3 in your lineups this week. In DFS, Samuel will be a hard player to ignore, especially at the price point that he will be at.

TE

Dan Arnold vs. Carolina Panthers

After missing last week’s game, Dan Arnold picks the perfect time to come back and insert himself into the start-worthy tight end discussion. You should take advantage of his matchup against the Panthers. Their defense is near the bottom of the league in points allowed to the position (10.43 Fantasy PPG) and is tied for the league lead in touchdowns allowed. Like I said with Curtis Samuel, this game could go back and forth, and Arnold could see a good amount of snaps and targets here. With the wasteland that is the tight end position, most owners could be streaming weekly based on matchups. If you are in this category, Arnold may be a player to pick up and start in Week 15. In DFS, Arnold is one of those players that will be cheap and low-owned at a position that largely gets punted each week. He is the ultimate boom or bust in this game.

DEF

New York Giants vs. Tennessee Titans

Call it a hunch, but with the Giants starting to play better overall and with an inconsistent Titans offense coming to town, this defense could be an intriguing play. Marcus Mariota is without a doubt better at home than he is on the road, and it would not surprise me to see him put out a dud of a performance in Week 15. Look for a minimum of two turnovers from Mariota here with the possibility of a defensive score. That alone makes them a starting defense for me in Week 15, especially if I am streaming at the position.
