Week 15 FanDuel Picks

By Kevin English 1:12pm EST 12/14/19

Quarterback

Cash Game Option

Ryan Tannehill, Titans ($7,600) vs. Houston

Derrick Henry missed practice all week. While he’s expected to play through a hamstring injury, he won’t be at full strength.

If he’s limited at all, perhaps that shifts some volume to Tannehill. We’ve seen the former Dolphin get it done lately on limited attempts — 27 or fewer in 4 straight. He’s hit 19 FD points in all but 1 of them.

Now facing a Houston pass D that was just torched by Drew Lock, Tannehill looks like a solid, fair-priced option.

Tournament Target

Dak Prescott, Cowboys ($7,800) vs. Los Angeles Rams

Dak ranks #1 in our FD dollars per point projections. While that’s more of a cash game consideration, it’s nice to know that you can get fantasy’s QB3 at a discount.

No, the Rams aren’t an ideal matchup. But Prescott’s excelled at home this year with 351 yards and 2.33 TDs per game. Dallas is implied for a solid 24 points, while they’re actually 1-point home underdogs. This game environment could turn into a sneaky shootout.

FanShare Ownership Projection: 3.7%

Also consider: Deshaun Watson

Running Back

Cash Game Options

Chris Carson, Seahawks ($7,400) vs. Carolina

Don’t overthink this one. The Panthers have allowed a rushing score in all but 1 game this season. Seattle, meanwhile, will be without Rashaad Penny due to a torn ACL.

Expect Carson to see 20+ touches with positive game script on his side.

Todd Gurley, Rams ($7,600) at Dallas

It’s all about the workload here. Gurley’s handled 20+ touches in 3 of his last 4 outings, with the lone outlier coming in a blowout loss. He’s delivered with 3 scores over that stretch, despite getting vultured by Malcolm Brown last week.

Next up is a beatable Dallas run D. They’ll remain without LB Leighton Vander Esch, while LB Sean Lee is highly questionable with a pectoral injury.

Tournament Target

Saquon Barkley, Giants ($8,300) vs. Miami

Barkley hasn’t scored since Week 8. And he hasn’t looked like himself since a Week 3 high-ankle sprain.

He’s still getting the work, though; 18+ opportunities in 7 straight. Now he gets a Dolphins unit sitting 30th in Pro Football Focus’ run defense grades. They’ve also surrendered 100+ rushing yards to a RB 6 times this season.

Add in the potential for 6-8 check-downs and a receiving score, and Barkley could easily finish among the highest-scoring Week 15 RBs.

FanShare Ownership Projection: 14.5%

Also consider: Nick Chubb, Kenyan Drake, DeAndre Washington (if Josh Jacobs sits), Patrick Laird

Wide Receiver

Cash Game Options

Keenan Allen, Chargers ($6,800) vs. Minnesota

Allen looks underpriced for a matchup with the Vikings. Over the past 5 weeks, only 4 teams have allowed more fantasy PPG to enemy WRs than Minnesota.

Allen enters with 68+ yards in 4 straight, while he’s scored in 2 of his past 3 contests. On the year, his 15 red zone targets have been topped by only 4 WRs.

Chris Conley, Jaguars ($5,100) at Oakland

The Jags will roll into Sunday without D.J. Chark, who’ll vacate a team-high 21.6% target share. That’ll surely boost Conley’s profile. He enters having seen 7+ targets 6 times this season, while he’s displayed downfield chops with 16.6 YPC.

A matchup with Oakland isn’t anything to fear. The Raiders have given up the 6th most fantasy points to WRs this season, and this week, they could be down starting CB Daryl Worley.

Tournament Target

Julio Jones, Falcons ($7,500) at San Francisco

This matchup isn’t ideal, but it’s worth noting some key injuries on San Francisco’s defense. Stud CBs Richard Sherman and K’Waun Williams are out, along with S Jaquiski Tart and pass rusher Dee Ford.

Atlanta, of course, will be without Calvin Ridley. And while Jones is playing through a shoulder injury, he at least took part in a full practice on Friday.

FanShare Ownership Projection: 9.9%

Also consider: DeAndre Hopkins, Chris Godwin, Jarvis Landry, Isaiah Ford (if DeVante Parker sits)

Tight End

Zach Ertz, Eagles ($6,700) at Washington

The Eagles have been decimated by injuries, most recently losing Alshon Jeffery for the season. Ertz stepped up big time last week with 9-92-1 against the Giants. Really, though, that followed a pattern of high volume usage. Ertz owns 11+ targets in 4 of his past 5 matchups.

That type of upside will remain against a Washington pass D sitting 23rd in Pro Football Focus' coverage grades.

FanShare Ownership Projection: 10.8%

Also consider: Travis Kelce

Defense

Cash Game Option

Chiefs ($3,900) vs. Broncos

Tournament Target

Lions ($4,100) vs. Buccaneers
