Winter is coming. It’s semifinals week and the night is dark and full of terror. It’s time for you to grab you dragon glass dagger and slay your white walking dead opponent on you way to claiming the throne of Fantasy Football Champion. In this post I’ll go over questionable players to watch closely Sunday morning as well as some sneaky starts this week, who just might be available in your free agent pool depending on how many players are rostered in your league. Plus find my freshly updated week 15 rankings below!
