HOT + NOT For Week 15 Fantasy Football

Hot and Not – Week 15

Each week, Dave B will compile a list of Hot and Not Hot players based on their past performances and future matchups.


Another week of scintillating NFL action is in the books and some of you are still in the hunt for a Fantasy crown. Who can you depend on the rest of the way? Who is best to avoid during the most important time in your Fantasy season?

Dave B breaks down all of the Hot and Not players heading into Week 15 – Good Luck the rest of the way!



Tom Brady – New England Patriots – Brady has been scorching Hot in the last five weeks in particular. On Sunday he threw for 3 touchdowns and one interception (his first in five weeks) on the way to yet another win. Brady has 13 touchdowns in his last five games and has averaged 314 yards passing per game over that span. It goes without saying – Brady is Hot!

Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – Perhaps the only Hotter QB other than Brady is Drew Brees who once again threw for over 300 yards in a win on Sunday. In his last four games Brees has averaged 341 yards passing and has totalled 11 touchdowns with ZERO interceptions.

Aaron Rodgers -Green Bay Packers – I know I sound like a broken record but these three QBs just keep getting it done. Rodgers passed for 281 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday and now has 25 touchdowns and an average of 300.5 yards per game in his last eight games. Brady is absolutely money in the bank right now.

Philip Rivers – San Diego Chargers – Don’t look now but guess who’s Hot? Rivers has tossed three touchdowns and ZERO interceptions in each of his last two games and is finally realizing the potential that most felt he had. I hope it is not too late for Rivers owners!


Ray Rice – Baltimore Ravens – Rice rushed for 103 yards in Baltimore’s 24-10 win against the Colts in Week 14. One of Rice’s 26 carries was a 6-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He added six catches for 46 yards. This performance came after Rice rushed for 204 yards in Week 13. He now has 100-plus rushing yards in three of his last four games. Rice said that he feels fresh and is as Hot as RBs come at this point of the season.

Shonn Greene – NY Jets – Greene has four touchdowns in his last two games and has finally assumed unquestioned starter Fantasy status. He had 88 yards rushing and three touchdowns along with 26 yards receiving in Week 13 and 129 yards rushing with a touchdown and 58 yards receiving in Week 14. Finally, patient owners are happy that Greene is Hot!

Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks – Marshawn Lynch was on an eight-game scoring streak and found the end zone again in the fourth quarter and finished with 115 yards on 23 carries in a 30-13 win. He has hit the century mark for the five of his last six games. A nine game scoring streak is automatically Hot.

Roy Helu – Washington Redskins – Helu has emerged from the pack in Washington and has become Hot because of it. Helu has three straight 100+ yard games and two touchdowns in those games and now gets a crack at a Giants defense that made Felix Jones look very good in Week 15.

Honourable Mention: Ryan Matthews


Rob Gronkowski – New England Patriots – Gronkowski had six catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday to become the all-time leader in single-season touchdown receptions by a tight end. The dude has 10 touchdowns in his last six games to become the Hottest pass catcher in the game. [ad-8469823]

Wes Welker – New England Patriots – Welker hit a “slump” during Weeks 10 and 11 but since has gotten Hot again. Over the last 3 weeks, Welker has averaged 8.66 catches per game, 104 yards and he has scored 3 times – Hot!

Laurent Robinson – Dallas Cowboys – Miles Austin who? Robinson continued to be the most productive receiver on the Cowboys despite the presence of both Miles Austin and Dez Bryant on Sunday to the tune of 4 catches, 137 yards and a touchdown. He now has eight touchdowns in his last seven games.

Not Hot


Carson Palmer – Oakland Raiders – Palmer is officially off the Fantasy Radar with a one touchdown, four interception performance against Green Bay on Sunday. In his last three games, Palmer has averaged 273 yards per game (mostly in garbage time), has just three total touchdowns and six interceptions – Not Hot!

Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens – Flacco had a decent game against Indianapolis but who doesn’t? Flacco has averaged just 182 yards passing per game, has just three total touchdowns and one interception in his last three games. He’s winning games but is Not Hot in Fantasy circles.

Ryan Fitzpatrick – Buffalo Bills – Fitzpatrick has had a couple of games to forget in the last two weeks and certainly is Not Hot at the moment. He has averaged 232 yards passing per game in his last two, has just one touchdown pass and two interceptions. Against Miami in Week 15, Fitzpatrick should remain Not Hot.

Dishonourable Mention: Alex Smith


Michael Turner – Atlanta Falcons – Turner has tailed off – a Week 14 performance against a brutal Carolina run defense that he torched for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 is further proof – just 76 yards and no touchdowns. In his last three games, Turner has averaged just 60 yards rushing per game and he hasn’t scored – Not Hot!

Peyton Hillis – Cleveland Browns – Hillis has been back from injury for three games now – he has averaged just 45 yards rushing and hasn’t scored since his return. Arizona is on the horizon – appealing until you realize that Hillis is rapidly losing touches to a more effective Montario Hardesty.
