This is a simple, straightforward piece. At the end of the week, we are taking our weekly composite staff rankings from us season pass Segment and comparing those rankings as it relates to players we see as a caliber option for pricing at FanDuel, DraftKings and Globe Live Media.
Ryan Tannehill vs Lion – QB6 (FanDuel, QB8, $ 7,700)
Because there are not too many games on Sunday’s main slate and our expert rankers list all players on the main slate or not, the small advantages of their ranking vs. DFS prices are actually much higher than they initially seem. Tannehill arrives this week as one of the better values, especially because his team’s total lies. The Titans lead the Sunday Slate of Week 15 with a 31.25 undefeated team. Tannehill also serves as a direct pivot from Derrick Henry, who figures to be very popular this week.
Jalan Herts vs Cardinals – QB11 (Draftings, QB12, $ 5,900)
Hurts is undermined based on the part production shown only in his first NFL start. Vs. Saints, he ran 18 times for 104 yards. It was the fifth-fastest run in the game for quarterbacks since 2000. This week, he faced a Cardinals defense that allowed the sixth-fastest runner to resist passers-by. Hurts is the last Konami Code quarterback at a discounted price.
Lamar Jackson vs Jaguar – QB3 (Globe Live Media, QB5, $ 33)
The Ravens have a 30.5-point team, third on the main slate, and get a Jacksonville defense that is trying eight yards per pass this year. The mark is the final in the league, the only mark above 7.7 yards per attempt. The only concern with Jackson is that if his team takes a massive lead, they will be thrown until the third quarter. Jackson has accounted for 63 percent of Baltimore’s points this year, including one game in which he did not play. This means that if his team gets bigger, that is probably the reason he got it.
JK Dobins vs Jaguar – RB 15 (FanDuel, RB 19, $ 5,900)
The Dobbins have taken at least as a primary running back for Baltimore. At $ 5,900 on FanDuel, he can also leave some work and cash in on his team’s absurd total. In his last three games, he has averaged 13 carries for 64.7 yards and one touchdown. The Jaguars are allowing the third fastest run per game this season.
Cam Acres vs Jets – RB 7 (DraftKings, RB 10, $ 6,600)
Acres has been shedding tears in its last two matches. He is averaging 25.5 yards per carry for 121.5 yards with an additional 25.5 yards per carry. His team is a favorite of 17.5 points, with a team of 30.75 contained. This makes the Ram the second largest scoring team and is Slate’s biggest favorite according to Vegas. His Red Zone role makes him the perfect way to benefit from those aspects of Los Angeles. He has seen 14 of Ram’s 15 red zone carry over the past two weeks.
Jonathan Taylor vs Texas – RB4 (Globe Live Media, RB6, $ 29)
Taylor has emerged as a major fictional option in running back in his last three games. He has rushed at least 20 times in that span and has not less than 114 yards in each of those three matches. He has more than a touchdown favorite against the Texans at home this week.
Brandon Ayuk vs Cowboy – WR9 (FanDuel, WR16, $ 6,900)
Week 15. 15 will have 49ers without George Cottle and Debo Samuel. Ayuk has played five games, neither of which ended in either. In those days, he averaged 6.4 receptions for 75.8 yards and .4 touchdowns. It is at 10.4 targets per game and includes early season contests, which Ayuk was also returning from during the injury. He is a clear bet on volume versus cost.
TY Hilton vs. Texas – WR17 (Drafts, WR 22, $ 5,500)
After a disappointing start (and middle) in the 2020 season, Hilton has finally come on as a weekly fantasy contributor. He has at least 80 yards receiving and one touchdown in three consecutive matches. Hilton has seen five or more goals in every game since 10. 10.. His price is lower than what his recent production indicates he is capable of.
DK Metcalf vs Washington – WR3 (Globe Live Media, WR7, $ 29)
Metcalf is the cheapest of the elite providers on Globe Live Media, based on its $ 29 price tag. He is one of just ten receivers with more than 30 Globe Live Media points this season and his volume is increasing in the second half of the season. Since the Week 7 explosion of Tyler Lockett, Metcalf has seen 26 percent targets and 42 percent air yards in Seattle. He is both a solid value and a great opposite game on Globe Live Media this week.
Cole Kame vs Vikings – TE14 (FanDuel, TE18, $ 5,100)
Until Week 10, Kem had never even played in half of his team’s games. Since Week 10, he has played on less than 70 percent of the Bears offensive snacks. From his first week as a full-time player has translated to five goals per game. No team goes to a higher percentage of its players than Chicago and Kemet and Kem is the cheapest way to tap that huge amount.
Jordan Reid vs Cowboys – TE15 (Draftings, TE16, $ 3,200)
DraftKings is likely the most accurate tight end pricing, so a slight benefit with Reid is the best this week. Reid has played eight matches this year, seven of which have been without a healthy Kylet. In those seven games, he has posted 3.1 receptions for 28.7 yards and scores 4 goals on 5.3 goals per week. He is 9.4 drafters points per game. Only six active tight ends are out on the main slate marking that year.
Hayden Hurst vs Buccaneers – TE13 (Globe Live Media, TE16, $ 12)
Hurst may seem like an ugly game but his near-minimum cost at Globe Live Media is horrifically attractive. His 14.7 percent goal is 16th among shared tight ends and the Falcons are 38.5 times per game, eighth-most passes in the NFL. If Kelce is not being paid for, this week is going down like Hearst somehow.
