DFS Digging In The Crates Daily 2019 week 15 DraftKings
DraftKings (Main Slate)
Kyle Allen vs. Seahawks ($5,400)
Kyle Allen’s turnover problems have been a part of his adjustment to the NFL game speed, but the fantasy points over the last three weeks have continued to be SOLID. Both with his arm, and legs. He’s averaging at least 21 fantasy points and has rushed for two touchdowns in that span. We don’t shy away from Jameis Winston and his constant turnover battle because he will compensate with throwing the ball a ton each game in negative scripts. I think Allen is a great tournament play at his price.
Phillip Rivers vs. Vikings ($5,600)
Phillip Rivers is on his way to another 4,000 yard season. He has the weaponry around him to remain a week to week fantasy quarterback. He’ll get a Vikings team that has given up multiple passing touchdown games seven times so far this season. His Crate price puts him firmly in play for cash games. His upside is capped, but he’s not going to hurt lineups.
Kenyan Drake vs. Browns ($5,000)
The Arizona Cardinals backfield has been a roller coaster ride all season in Arizona. David Johnson is an after thought, Chase Edmonds has showed small glimpses of competency and most recently Kenyan Drake seems to have taken of the “bulk”. Drake will get a Browns defense that is giving up nearly five yards a rush and 128 rushing yards per game. Drake is a lock for 15 touches but with a committee in tact, he’s only a tournament play.
Raheem Mostert vs. Falcons ($5,200)
The 49ers are another team that runs a committee of running backs but Raheem Mostert is get the “bulk” of touches. Mostert has 33 touches over the last two weeks and four touchdowns over his last four games. Any time we are dealing with a committee, it’s a guessing game trying to estimate fantasy points. And with a “healthy” Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman, Mostert falls right into that mix. I’d love to advocate for him in cash games but he is still more of a tournament play based on the unknown week to week usage.
Terry McLaurin vs. Eagles ($5,300)
It doesn’t feel that long ago that Terry McLaurin was taking the NFL by storm. Week one to be exact. McLaurin caughg five passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. He’s come back to earth since. He’ll an Eagles team again week 15 that just got lit up by rookie Darius Slayton. He has 23 targets over the last three weeks and is easily the top Redskins go-to in terms of usage. I think his price allows him to be a cash game option and he has the ceiling to be a fantastic tournament option week 15.
Anthony Miller @ Packers ($5,100)
Taylor Gabriel is highly questionable week 15 and Allen Robinson has played the part of being “elite”. These two variables benefit Anthony Miller’s usage. If Allen Robinson faces any type of double coverage, more opportunity will go to the second year stud from memphis. Miller has 37 targets over the last three weeks but the receptions and yardage has been all over the place. I like his price and if i’m making multiple lineups he’ll for a contrarian stack with Allen Robinson and Mitch Trubisky and run it back with Davante Adams.
O.J. Howard @ Lions ($3,500)
Are we finally seeing what O.J. Howard is capable of doing each week? He’s caught 9-of-11 targets over the last two weeks and that number could go up with Mike Evans sidelined for the season. He’s a big bodied red zone threat with as much talent as any tight end in the NFL. Now it’s time to see him close out 2019 with a bang. Expect his usage to go up week 15. I’ll have exposure to him in cash games and tournaments.
Tyler Higbee @ Cowboys ($3,900)
Tyler Higbee has been outstanding over the last two weeks while replacing Gerald Everett. He’s caught 14-of-19 targets with back to back 100 yard games. Everett has still yet to practice and all signs are looking as if Higbee will get the week 15 nod. The Cowboys are a mess defensively and Higbee is just too cheap. Use him in cash games or tournaments (Based on Gerald Everett’s status).
Rams @ Cowboys ($2,900)
The Rams have allowed fewer than 12 points in six of their last seven games. In that stretch they have had atleast three sacks per game. Love the price, love the high floor and I love the talent on the Rams defense.
