Week 15 DraftKings Picks

By Jared Smola 10:12am EST 12/13/19


RBs

Cash Cornerstones

Chris Carson, Seahawks ($7,500)

The stars have aligned for Carson this week.

Rashaad Penny is out with his ACL injury, putting Carson back into an every-down role. In the 4 games Penny hasn’t registered a touch in this season, Carson has averaged 20.5 carries and 3.5 targets.

And the matchup is prime. The Panthers rank dead last in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA and DraftKings points allowed to RBs. They’ve been especially bad over the last 3 weeks, coughing up 512 yards and 6 TDs on 6.9 yards per carry to RBs.

Todd Gurley, Rams ($6,000)

Gurley is still priced for his early-season usage. He’s turned back into the Rams’ offensive focal point lately.

After reaching 20 opportunities (carries + targets) in just 2 of his first 8 games, Gurley has hit that mark in 3 of his last 4. And he’s scored 18.5+ DK points in all 3 of those.

Gurley should be busy again in Sunday’s likely shootout in Dallas. The Cowboys have been a middling RB defense, ranking 16th in DK points allowed to the position and 19th in adjusted fantasy points allowed.
