Week 15:Digging In The Crates

DraftKings Main Slate (11 Games)




Joe Flacco vs. Bears ($5,500)

Joe Cool is back! His base salary is modest, but the more games he wins for the Browns could turn into millions. Most of the games on the main slate have low totals, but Flacco should be able to get us there. He’s thrown the ball 44 or more times in his two starts. The Bears are porous, his upside at cost is too good. I am in Week 15!

Sam Howell @ Rams ($6,300)

Most of us can be in agreement that Sam Howell is Washington’s future given the season he has had so far. He’ll get a nice matchup this Week in a game the Commanders should be trailing. The Rams are favorites, in a game that features the highest implied total on the main slate. Howell has thrown for 20+ DK points in six straight games.


Running Backs


Ezekiel Elliott vs. Chiefs ($5,800)


It appears that Rhomondre Stevenson will miss Week 15 with an ankle injury, and our old friend Ezekiel Elliott should slide into the starting role. Zeke has had 21+ touches in back to back games, and that volume should continue on an offense that has been decimated by injury.


Chuba Hubbard vs. Falcons ($5,600)

Chuba Hubbard has seen some serious volume recently, on a Panthers offense that’s been dreadful. He has had 90+ yards from scrimmage in three straight games in spite of Miles Sanders being sprinkled in. I will take volume that just about 20 touches a week for his current cost.


Wide Receivers


Wan’Dale Robinson @ Saints ($3,700)

The Giants season as a whole has been a disappointment from top to bottom. These last few Weeks of the season tend to be an audition for some as they are already planning ahead. The Giants are on of those teams seeking an identity. Wan’Dale Robinson came through last Week catching 6-of-7 targets for 79 yards against the Packers. His price is still depressed, and paying off his cheap tag won’t be hard.


Jayden Reed vs. Buccaneers ($4,900)

We have been attacking the Buccaneers secondary all season, and it’s worked. Christian Watson is doubtful, making Jayden Reed even more appealing. The Packers are using Reed in the running game, like the 49ers use Deebo Samuel. Reed has had 15+ FPTS in four of his last five games. Jordan Love and company are going to be a fun team to watch for the duration of the season.


Tight Ends


David Njoku vs. Bears ($4,700)

Joe Flacco has found a new weapon and security blanket in David Njoku. The two connected for a pair of touchdowns Week 14, as the Browns make a playoff push. Njoku has had at-least 10 FPTS in seven of his last eight games. The floor is safe, and the ceiling appears to be close to 30. Sign me up for stability when it comes to a position that lacks a ton of substance.


Chig Okonkwo vs. Texans ($2,900)

Will Levis has really zeroed in on two pass catchers since he’s taken over in Tennesee, DeAndre Hopkins and Chig Okonkwo. Okonkwo has caught 12 targets over his last two games, averaging nine DK points in each contest. The Titans don’t have a deep offense, and at $2,900 we cant go wrong.


Defense/Special Teams

Patriots vs. Chiefs ($2,300)
