Gus Edwards- RB- Ravens

While the former Ohio State running back, J.K. Dobbins, is getting the majority of the carries, Gus Edwards is seeing touches in the RedZone and goal line. On Monday night against the Browns, Edward had seven carries for 49 yards and two touchdowns. Edwards has six rushing touchdowns on the year. If Monday night is any indication, the Ravens want to run the ball with Lamar Jackson, Dobbins and Edwards. Pick up Edwards for a buck this week if you need a running back.

Rashard Higgins- WR- Browns

It looks like Browns' quarterback Baker Mayfield has found some confidence in throwing the ball to Rashard Higgins. In Week 14 against the Ravens, Higgins had six receptions for 68 yards and a score. It was his second straight game with at least nine targets. The Browns face the Giants, whose defense has given up the 12th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this year. If you need a wide receiver for your week 15 playoff matchup, Higgins may be available for a buck this week.

Nick Mullens- QB- 49ers

While Nick Mullens hasn't looked like the quarterback of the future for the 49ers, he could be a solid starting option in week 15. The 49ers face the Cowboys, whose defense has given up the 9th most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Mullens does have a couple three-hundred-yard games this season, but those games usually comes with a couple turnovers. If you are desperate for a QB, Mullens might be your best option this week.

Dan Arnold- TE- Cardinals

While tight end Dan Arnold may not be seeing a ton of targets, he's making the most out of his receptions. In the last four games, he has four touchdowns. Quarterback Kyler Murray is gaining confidence in Arnold while in the red zone. The Cardinals face the Eagles this weekend, whose defense has given up the 11th most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Arnold is a risk, but he may be able to get you a touchdown or two in your week 15 semi-final.

K.J. Hamler- WR- Broncos

While Hamler is not seeing a ton of targets, he might be worth picking up for a buck this week. Hamler is one of the most explosive wide receivers this year, and he proved it last week against the Panthers. Hamler recorded two receptions for 86 yards and two scores. He may not be someone to consider in full PPR leagues, but Hamler has the ability to find the endzone once he gets thrown the ball. He should be picked up in Keeper and dynasty leagues, and you can get him for a buck his week.

If you are desperate for a running back, fantasy owners should take a look at Jeremy McNichols this week. The Titans face the Lions, whose defense has given up the most fantasy points to running backs this year. Matt Stafford is doubtful to play for the Lions, which could lead to a blowout win for the Titans. If that happens, expect Tennessee to use McNichols in the second half like they did against the Jaguars in week 14. McNichols didn't perform well in week 14, only recording nine yards from 11 carries, but at least he has a chance to put up some fantasy points against a poor Lions' defense. Get him for a buck this week.
