There’s not much to say besides the fact that all of us who are still around are in a must-win state. We’ve had a great year trying to help you make those oh so important roster decisions (at least according to the metrics out there), so I hope to continue the trend as your fantasy football championship gets closer and closer.

Be sure to check out our Start and Sits for today’s games here, along with Rudy’s updated projections for Week 15 by clicking here. And as always, my updated rankings are available after the jump!

 

 
 
Select the “Flex” tab if you need a more complete picture to decide your starts and sits. Use the “OP” tab for 2QB Leagues. And you can access our Half PPR and PPR rankings using the drop down box in the top left of our rankings when you select the RB, WR, TE, or Flex positions. Any and all questions will be answered below…

  1. For an Armenianless vacation come to Akron says:

    14 teamer PPR.
    QB luck
    RB (2) mccoy/ware (farrow/booker/sims BN)
    WR (3) a.brown/diggs/t-will (SD) (boyd/parker BN)
    TE (1) eifert (bennett BN)
    util (1) inman
    i know rankings and either way i’m pretty connected to SD here, but if i’m near deadlocked do this or start farrow over somebody?
    2. hold booker in case of getting job back or regrab c.west in case of ware injury? could also grab d-will (PIT) as he’s clearly more upside backup (but not my own of course), or burkhead for floor.

    3. for different league (PPR). yahoo projected near tie in this one too, i know rankings, but i got the old brate vs reed fear. reed played very few snaps last week. both teams need to win of course (so that’s good i guess, be easier if WAS didn’t need to though). reed played 10 snaps last week and did nothing. be damn ugly to lose from benching or playing him.

  2. Blake says:

    ok in my standard league, Need to start 3 WR”s – I have

    WR: E Sanders
    WR: T Hill
    WR: T Gabriel

    B: G Tate
    B: JJ Nelson

    Based on your rankings, the above is how I should start them. but in KC it will be 7 below. Shoudl I do Tate over Hill? Now that Nelson is starting should he be moved up in the conversation?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Blake: I like it the way they are at. I know nobody wants to play in the cold, but I don’t think it’ll kill Hills value today.

  3. WillisReid says:
    (link)

    Need to start 2 of Mike Wallace Thieline Brate. Need to start 2 of3. I’m assuming Wallace based on your rankings…..

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @WillisReid: Yeah, probably Wallace and Thelline.

  4. Allan says:
    (link)

    Jay,
    Thinking about starting ty montgomery as my rb2 in a ppr over ingram and hightower. Thoughts? Also have ertz over gates right now because every time I start gates he either gets no targets or henry vultures him. Can ertz do well against that ravens d? Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Allan: I’m okay with it. The Ty hype was probably too much a month ago, but he can be solid. I’m not as trusting there, but the Ingram/Hightower thing has been a mess. And I’m sticking with Gates. Henry may vulture snaps, but all the red zone looks will go to Gates because of the record.

  5. the imp says:
    (link)

    Intrigued by the ranking of Kap over Jameis. Who is the floor guy out of those two for you?

    I feel like it is probably Winston, though nervous about both. Happy to be up early thanks to SEA ineptitude for my opponent (he dropped Lockett as his 4th SEA starter…whew). Good luck this week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @the imp: I agree with ya imp, Winston is the floor guy here, and I’m actually a fan, but I see a lot of ways Kap can get to his ceiling. Good luck to you too man!

  6. R Doumit says:
    (link)

    Standard league. Need two:
    Cooks
    T. Hill
    Crowder
    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @R Doumit: I’d say too many Cooks in the kitchen and Crowder.

      • Ryan Doumit says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Figured based on your rankings, but wanted to gut check before the game. Thanks!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Ryan Doumit: No worries man, that’s what I’m here for. Good luck!

  7. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Trying to figure out who to flex this week. Have Alshon in there now. Could dump someone for Tevin Coleman and play him in the flex. I do also have Ryan and Freeman (and lost Jones).

    Half PPR – 3 point bonus at 85 yards rec/100 yards rushing – 6 point bonus at 135 yards rec/150 yards rushing – 6 points per rushing/rec TD

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: I’m sure Zach says Coleman, and I like what he had to say yesterday. But with owning both Ryan and Freeman, I’d probably just stick Alshon in there to prevent a monopoly.

  8. ryanoger says:
    (link)

    .5 ppr

    Would you sit Latavius or Fitz to start Tevin Coleman?

    Thanks jay!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: Just Fitz I think.

      • ryanoger says:

        @Jay:

        Thanks man!

  9. MiggyCat says:
    (link)

    Semi’s. .5 ppr

    Opponent had Baldwin for 12 and Ajayi for 5.1 so far. I started Landry for 18.3

    Here are my pitfalls.

    Start Petersen vs Indy or Washington vs NyG? Lost Gordon and Sproles last week.

    Pick 2: Diggs, Pryor, Watkins, Nelson. Buff weather scares me a bit for Watkins which sucks playing against McCoy. Can’t seem to trust Pryor w/ RG3. Diggs has been meh lately. Nelson for some reason I’m crushing on him but his floor seems the lowest. Don’t trust any of them.

    Starting Ryan, Zeke, Landry, Reed and Buff D otherwise.

    Vs Rodger, McCoy, Ajayi, Baldwin, Cobb, Matthews, Bennett and Vikes D

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MiggyCat: I would never in a million years want to start Peterson, but if it’s between him and Washington, eesh. I think I might. You make good points on the WRs, but I think I’m still going with that order, despite our shared trepidation. I don’t like the other team though, so that’s good. Cobb and Matthews have the ability to put up zeroes here.

  10. Chester says:
    (link)

    Morning man! .5 ppr leleague better upside for this week to pick one out of these 3: Hopkins vs jags,, JJ Nelson vs saints ,, Watkins vs browns or lastly Emmanuel sanders in cold Denver?

    Secondly I have farrow at flex leave him there or start any of the listed WRs who I don’t start at WR who then could be Flex worthy?

    Thanks for all your insight all season

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chester: Pure upside? Probably going Hopkins and Watkins there. And I’d put Farrow in the flex just for floor if you’re going pure upside at WR. And thanks for sticking around, good luck!

  11. matt says:
    (link)

    Big Jay Deezie what up,

    Pick 2 por favor: STANDARD LEAGUE

    Thielen
    Boyd
    GArcon
    Taylor Gabriel

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @matt: what up! Going boyd and Gabriel there

      • matt says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks Jay, Last one, DO i go Carr vs SD over TOM?

  12. Johnc says:
    (link)

    Following up yesterday per your advice. 12 team, standard league. I caught a break as my opponent played Forte last night. Projections have me winning by 30 which of course means I am doomed LOL.
    My team has some tough matchups but thinking my flex needs to be the highest floor. What say you?

    Cousins
    Bell, J Hill,
    Brown, Edelman,
    Eifert
    Bryant
    Chiefs
    Flex: Farrow, Inman, Thielen, Malcolm, (AJ in IR, next week I hope and I hope I care!).

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Johnc: I’d go Farrow there if standard, inman for ppr. Good luck!

      • Johnc says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thank you sir

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Johnc: Any time!

  13. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, I’m currently rolling out D Adams, Inman & Snead for WR position (a mess, I know, will need D Johnson/D Freeman/L Murray to carry me this week) but would you consider dropping a bench guy like M Jones Jr or Boyd for Thielen and than plug him in over Snead?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: naw, keep Snead there.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thank you sir, good luck in the playoffs, whichever leagues you might remain in!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: You too Nick!

  14. 2 WR’s & 1 Flex needed from; Sammy Watkins, Tyrell Williams, Brandin Cooks, Davante Adams & Alshon Jeffery. RB options for flex are; Ryan Mathews or Dwayne Washington, Adrian Peterson  & Devontae Booker. Which 3 Jay? Thanks man!

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @madden_curser: oops nm, yeah, those three are good.

      • @Jay: Sammy Watkins, Tyrell Williams & Brandin Cooks. Keep Davante Adams on the bench then. Adams at Chicago probably a factor? Watkins over Adams. I was tempted to go with Dwayne Washington at flex with Stafford’s finger and Riddick out, but Washington hasn’t shown any big play ability and the G-Men defense as well. Great work all season long Jay.

        • @madden_curser: Actually I’m leanng Adams, Watkins & Tyrell Williams. Too many weapons on NO to play Cooks @ ARI. All 4 WR’s are close.

          • Jay

            Jay says:
            (link)

            @madden_curser: yeah, I’m down with that, for sure.

  15. Johnc says:
    (link)

    My second question is on handcuffs…..I put AJ on IR and grabbed Burkhead just in case of a Hill issue. I guess I could have taken DeAngelo for Bell too. Or I could grab Forsett if you see something good there coming next week (hoping I am still playing)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Johnc: i think5 forsett there

  16. TheFantasyDick says:
    (link)

    Pick 2 (to see if any changes):

    Crowder
    Montgomery
    Inman

    Started ajayi over powell…top seed jinx

    Thanks!

  17. PublicEnemy#1 says:
    (link)

    League Rules are PPR and 1/2 Point Per Rush Attempt…

    Do I start Crowell, Montgomery, or K Dixon?

    If it matters, I have already had Rawls, Powell, and SEA D play and am off to a good start. Thinking I might need to guy above with the highest floor.

  18. PublicEnemy#1 says:
    (link)

    Another Montgomery Questions….In a PPR league, do I go with Montgomery, TColeman, or Farrow?

  19. Zach

      @Zach: Ugh.

  20. Churrbadurr says:
    (link)

    12 team .5 opt

    Pick 3:

    Ty Montgomery @ CHI
    Taylor Gabriel @ SF
    Robert Kelley @ CAR
    Doug Martin @ DAL

    My opponent threw up some duds (already started gurley and ajayi) so I need a high floor.

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Churrbadurr: I would say Martin, Gabriel, and Kelley there.

  21. Frank says:
    (link)

    Full ppr w/ spec teams pts. I had a first rd bye. Looks like I might be rolling 3 falcons out there today… We start 3WR, 2RB, TE, W/R flex. Thoughts on my best lineup? See below how I have It set right now. Thanks in advance.

    WR – Ty Williams, Watkins, Gabriel
    RB – Freeman, Dav Johnson
    TE – Reed
    Flex – T Coleman
    Def – Falcons

    Bench
    RB – Kelley, Gordon (out)
    TE – L Green, Vernon
    WR – Tate, Meredith, JJ Nelson, Thielen

    Def – Texans and Packers are available on wire

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Frank: Hmm, I’d probably say you have the best ones out. I might put Kelley in for Coleman if you’re feeling a little Falcon heavy. It’s a coinflip for me there.

      • Frank says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thanks. And real quick.. in another league half ppr.. Watkins or Coleman? I’m already starting devonta in this one too.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Frank: Hmm, in that case, Watkins I think.

  22. Sano Chance in Hell says:
    (link)

    Need to pick 3 PPR WR from below (note, we get points for return yards):

    Tyreek Hill
    Taylor Gabriel
    Sammy Watkins
    Ty Montgomery
    Tyrell Williams

    Thoughts?

  23. Jeebers says:
    (link)

    Flex Farrow against Oakland, or flex Peterson against the Colts? Do you trust AD this week?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jeebers: I don’t trust AP this week, but I might gamble here. Farrow doesn’t excite me, and he’s a prototypical floor pick. If your team doesn’t excite you or you feel like you’re behind, I’d go AP, but if I’m playing safe, go with Farrow. (I’m generally conservative.)

  24. Jake snakebit says:
    (link)

    Thanks for the help all season. Really appreciate the time you guys put in. Semifinal matchup for me. Undefeated year so far! Standard league, run a wr/te flex and a rb/wr flex.
    Big Ben
    Ty Hilton
    D Adams
    Johnson
    McCoy
    L green
    Flex ty hill
    Flex l Murray
    D Minnesota

    Bench: cooks, Ebron, booker, Shepard, d henry, Dixon, m Mitchell, Powell, farrow

    Should I pickup Oakland or gb def and start them in place of minn so ty doesn’t poach points if he gets a td?
    And I’m considering picking up Morris as my potential opponent next week is a Zeke owner with top waiver priority. Thoughts?
    Thanks again.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jake snakebit: Thanks for hanging out with us! I like Minn there today for DST. And yeah, I like getting Morris there just in case.

  25. PaulZone says:
    (link)

    O 5 ppr

    Farrow or Kelkey at Flex?

    Pick 2 WRs: Watkins, Tate; Hopkins, Rushard Matthews?

    Texans or Packers?

    Thanks!!!!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @PaulZone: Going Kelley there at Flex, and then Watkins and Tate.

      And Texans. Good luck!

  26. Moe says:
    (link)

    Jay! How confident are you w/ Kenneth farrow today? I’m just worried about Ronnie Hilman stealing opportunities. This is for flex Farrow vs Emmanuel sanders vs JJ Nelson vs Dwayne Washington. Washington is intriguing with riddick out however I have Giants D

    Thanks!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Moe: I think I have him ranked in the right place, kinda in the middle of everything, the line between should start and probably sit. But you have the same worries I have here. Not high on Washington, honestly. I think I’m going Sanders there.

  27. Old Dirty says:
    (link)

    Start 3 chiefs in this weather ? Ppr

    Kelce – lock
    Rb – ware or Crowell
    Flex – t. Hill, Crowell. Wallace, Cobb

    I asked something similar yesterday, but wanted to ask again with the 1 degree temp

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Old Dirty: I think I might go Ware, Wallace there. I think Wallace is close enough in the rankings where you could mitigate some risk there.

  28. DJG says:
    (link)

    Looking for a little “Flex Appeal”… Hard decision… You do you like more in PPR?

    1. Terrelle Pryor @ Buf (Targets? No targets? C’Mon RGIII)
    2. DeAndre Hopkins v Jax (Can’t believe this, but he’s the most benchable IMO)
    3. Jeremy Kerley @ Atl (Am I the only person thinking he could go off with Smith and McDonald out?)
    4. Adrian Peterson v Ind (Hail Mary obviously, but betting on a RB may be more comforting than RGIII, Osweiler, and Kaep essentially)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @DJG: It’s actually a coinflip between Peterson and Hopkins for me. This being PPR, probably leaning Hopkins there.

  29. Pete says:
    (link)

    2 qb questions which i can’t get comfortable with even after looking at your rankings:
    Rivers or Kap?
    and
    Eli or Flacco?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’m fine with Rivers, but I think Kap can do more with a little bit of risk. And on the second one, Flacco. I understand though, this one is close.

  30. Bandwgn09 says:
    (link)

    marquis lee, AP, lafell for flex in ppr?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Crazy, but I’m going AP there.

      • Bandwgn09 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: wow. how about this: alshon, witten, benjamin, deion lewis? separate league PPR

          • Bandwgn09 says:
            (link)

            @Jay: me too. Thanks!

  31. Pete says:
    (link)

    Planning to play Inman, Pryor, and Alshon in PPR and Flex Gore. Does that look right, benching Gore? I also have JJ Nelson i could sneak in.

    • Pete says:
      (link)

      @Pete: sorry, that should have said benching Boyd. Planning to flex gore and bench boyd and JJ Nelson.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Pete: Yeah, I think it’s a good mix.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Pete: Naw, that looks solid to me. Good luck!

  32. The G says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    Love the hard work this season! Made it to semi’s in one league(1st place-reg season) and was a Carr/Cooper decent showing away last week from making semi’s in another league.

    In a 12tm espn PPR league…who do i start? I can roll both Cooper and E. Sanders in one WR and Flex or swap out one of them for Blount. My gut says bench Cooper, but Sanders can easily go irrelevant against NE and i like the matchup for Blount to get 100+yds and a td or two. Thoughts?

    Thanks again!

    The G

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Thanks for the kind words and good to hear you’ve made it this far. Sorry I didn’t get to this earlier, but I probably would have said Sanders.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The G: Which is to say, I’m glad I was late to answer this!

  33. Buster says:
    (link)

    Grr should’ve sat Farrow he’s playing awfully & looks like they like hillman better.

    I’m going to need tons of good vibes on my side to pull this off we are close he has ATL D going, matt Bryant & then doug Martin tonight. I have matt Ryan ,David Johnson,farrow. Dez Bryant tonight then redskins kicker tomorrow

    I need matt Ryan to keep throwing, David Johnson to play like DJ is normally, would be nice if farrow showed up too lol of course a solid game from Dez , fingers crossed!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Vibes sent! And yeah, I was nervous about Farrow.

      • Buster says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Down to the wire now my score is 121.5
        My opponent has 107.

        I have Dez Bryant, Dustin Hopkins & IDP yet to play

        He has doug Martin

        It’s .5 ppr I’m hoping Dez can out score Martin tonight & on the flip for dallas to contain Doug Martin

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Buster: I’m feeling cautiously optimistic here. Good luck!
