2010 Fantasy Football Week 15 Start’Em Sit’Em

Week 15 Fantasy Start and Sit – Fantasy Matchups

With the NFL Fantasy football nearing the home stretch we encourage you to be checking out our FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEKLY ARTICLES for all your rankings and analysis for the upcoming week.


Week 15 is almost here and Fantasy playoffs are in full swing. There are certainly some good Fantasy matchups to ponder this week and a few key injury concerns to keep your eye on.

Below is a breakdown of every game and who should start and help you win the Fantasy Championship.

By all means, leave a comment or question and I will get back to you as soon as humanly possible!

San Francisco at San Diego 8:20 PM

The 49ers had a Fantasy field day last week against Seattle. Would I expect another one? Heck no! Against the NFL’s best overall defense, the only player that I would trust for the 49ers is Vernon Davis. Everyone else is too risky for my liking. For San Diego, go with Philip Rivers of course but maybe stay away from the running game. Three members of that attack got over 60 yards last week and they could cancel each other out. If I had to choose on, it would be Mike Tolbert. Vincent Jackson should play and is a good start as is Malcolm Floyd. Monitor Antonio Gates this week – he’s iffy to play and could be a risk. Start the Chargers defense.

Cleveland at Cincinnati 1:00 PM

Peyton Hillis continues to be the only automatic for the Browns although Ben Watson should bounce back from a brutal performance last week and have a good game. For Cincinnati, can you trust Cedric Benson anymore? If you have nobody else, start him but expect an average at best game. Carson Palmer should be OK as should Terrell Owens and Ochocinco. Everyone on the Bengals has been inconsistent – I have no idea what to think!

Washington at Dallas 1:00 PM

I think that this could be a shootout making Donovan McNabb an OK start this week. Ryan Torain is good to go and I think that Santana Moss and Chris Cooley are great plays this week. For Dallas, don`t hesitate to use Jon Kitna, Miles Austin or Jason Whitten this week. The 2nd WR spot is a risk in Dallas – no idea who will get the ball between Kevin Ogletree and Roy Williams. As far as the rushers go, my choice would be Choice – he gets the Red Zone touches.

Houston at Tennessee 1:00 PM

You have to play Matt Schaub, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson this week after what they showed against Baltimore. Owen Daniels has re-emerged and is worth a look as well. It`s hard to like anyone on the Titans except for Chris Johnson. I think that Kenny Britt is the best option in the passing game and view him as a WR3 this week.

Jacksonville at Indianapolis 1:00 PM

Maurice Jones-Drew is unbenchable at this point. The only other Jag that I trust is Marcedes Lewis –  period! For Indianapolis, Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and Jacob Tamme are automatic. If there is a sleeper on the Colts – it may be Javarris James who could break out this week and score.

Kansas City at St. Louis 1:00 PM

This game is all about Matt Cassel and his availability. If he plays, he may not be the best option but Dwayne Bowe and Tony Moeaki become relevant. If he doesn`t play, ignore the whole Chiefs passing game. Either way, Jamaal Charles is an automatic start. I actually like a few of the Rams particularly at home. Don`t be ashamed to start Sam Bradford if you are stuck, Steven Jackson could be a fine play and Brandon Gibson and Danny Amendola could be decent in PPR leagues.

Buffalo at Miami 1:00 PM

The Miami defense has been good this year and with the recent decline of the Bills offense, there is not a whole lot to like in this game. Steve Johnson based on his mid-season play is the only Bill that I would consider. Ditto for Miami – there is nobody performing well on their offense! Ronnie Brown may be just OK as may Davone Bess but the rest are a huge risk this week.

Philadelphia at NY Giants 1:00 PM

The Giants defense has been solid to say the least. Still, Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson and even Jeremy Maclin should be in your lineups. For the Giants, I like Eli to have to throw the ball in this game so start him as a low end QB1. Of the two running backs, I would surely choose Ahmad Bradshaw over Brandon Jacobs – he is getting more touches. Hakeem Nicks is back and should be used as should Kevin Boss who has scored in four of his last five games. I would try to avoid the defenses if possible – this could be a shootout.

Detroit at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM

Not a whole lot to like about the Lions right now – the only sure-fire starter is Calvin Johnson. For Tampa, LaGarrette Blount is a very attractive option this week as is Mike Williams and Kellen Winslow. Start all three but beware of the inconsistent Josh Freeman. He could be OK but offers up a huge risk.

Arizona at Carolina 1:00 PM

John Skelton will start at quarterback for the Cards this week meaning that the Arizona passing game should be avoided if possible. Larry Fitzgerald will likely have to be started but seriously temper your expectations. Tim Hightower will be good this week and is a Top 20 play in my books. For Carolina, the only player worth looking at is Jonathan Stewart. He is the offense and should be good again this week.

New Orleans at Baltimore 1:00 PM

The Baltimore defense shouldn`t scare the Saints in this one. Roll with Drew Brees, Marques Colston and even Robert Meacham in this one. If you are stuck for a Tight End, Jimmy Graham could be OK too. The running game is cloudy. Ivory, Bush and Pierre Thomas will all get their share of touches – avoid if possible. For Baltimore, I like Joe Flacco to be throwing in this game. He, Anquan Boldin and Derrick Mason are all very attractive options this week. Ray Rice should also produce good but unspectacular numbers.

Atlanta at Seattle 4:05 PM

Seattle`s defense can`t stop anyone. Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez all have to be in your lineups. Harry Douglas is a super-sleeper as well this week. For Seattle, Mike Williams is set to return. Expect double digit targets as usual and a good game – start. If Ben Obomanu plays, he could be a low end WR3. Matt Hasselbeck is simply an OK option this week largely because of the presence of Mike Williams.

Denver at Oakland 4:15 PM

Denver scares the crap out of me! Orton and Lloyd are struggling mightily but if they have gotten you this far, you may want to roll with them this week. Scary thought though! Knowshon Moreno might be the only productive Bronco. For Oakland, Darren McFadden is a no-brainer but the rest of the team is a bit of a risk. If you are a gambler, take a shot at Jason Campbell and Zach Miller – I wouldn`t however!

NY Jets at Pittsburgh 4:15 PM

Does anyone have any faith in the Jets against the Steelers defense this week? The only player that I would consider is Santonio Holmes for the Jets this week. For Pittsburgh, I like Big Ben this week and Mike Wallace. Hines ward is a WR3 and Rashard Mendenhall is a low end starter. Start both defenses in what should be a low scoring game.

Green Bay at New England 8:20 PM

Aaron Rodgers hasn`t been at practice yet this week so things don`t look good for the Packers. If Rodgers plays start him, Greg Jennings and Donald Driver of course. If Rodgers doesn`t play. Greg Jennings and Andrew Quarless are the only trustworthy starters this week for Green Bay. For New England, start everyone. Brady, Welker and Branch are great options as well as BenJarvus Green-Ellis who will likely score. If Matt Flynn starts for Green Bay, the Patriots defense becomes an intriguing starter as well.

Chicago at Minnesota 8:30 PM

Chicago looked bad in Week 14 but I think they bounce back against the Vikings on Monday night. Jay Cutler should be a decent start along with Johnny Knox and Greg Olsen in this one. Matt Forte is an OK start but temper your expectations against a good Minnesota run defense. Start Chicago`s defense – they are a Top 5 defense this week. For Minnesota, I have little faith in the QB situation, whatever it may bring! Adrian Peterson is basically unbenchable but may have a tough game against Chicago`s defense. Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin (assuming he plays) are also decent options. The Minnesota defense could generate a few turnovers in this one so keep them active.

  1. Tough game to go to the championship. Kitna or flacco, Wallace Marshall or Mason, and Bryant or janikowski. Thank you!

  2. Looking for help with my FLEX spot this week…Can’t decide between Jonathan Stewart against that terrible AZ defense or Mike Williams (SEA) coming back off of injury who should prob get the targets but will he play all game? I’d love to move Stewart to an RB and put Williams in but I have MJD and Moreno and prob wouldnt start Stewart over either of them the way they’ve been playing. Collie is on my bench as well for a possible FLEX spot but I have Wayne and feel like I’d be hurting myself by having them both in. Any advice??? Thanks!

  3. RevClyburn,

    No Brainer here – Britt and Williams are your men.

    Dave B

  4. Tony,

    I love Kitna this week against a completely dysfunctional Washington team.

    I have Wallace Mason and then Marshall on my rankings.

    The Raiders should score a ton of points this week so roll with Janikowski.

    Dave B

  5. JT,

    Wow, what a stacked lineup – folks coming through at the right time for you!

    J. Stewart is an excellent option this week as is Mike Williams. I know that there is a risk with Williams but I really do think he’s going to be a Stud this week.

    I love MJD but with the news that Tebow is going to start, Moreno suddenly becomes a risk especially since the pass threat won’t be as prevaleny.

    Out of your list, I might be inclined to go MJL, Stewart and Williams – the Tebow factor scares the hell out of me!

    Just a thought!
