It’s the final match-up, that is, unless you play into week 17 — in which case next week should be a wild one for you with benchings galore! But if you’re still here and you’re still reading — good luck my friends! Also, if you’re still here and you’re still reading you probably won’t be needing too much waiver help. Your team is one of the two best in your league (or one of the two luckiest — fantasy football is weird sometimes!) 

As always, if you’ve got a league specific question — drop it down below in the comments!

What’s going on everyone, and welcome to Week 15, the first week of the fantasy playoffs! If you’re reading and caring about this article, congrats, you’ve made it! But the hard work doesn’t stop here, so let’s talk about this upcoming Sunday and the great games that are on tap!

Let’s get to it!

Man it would have been very interesting had yesterday’s Chargers-Chiefs game been on the main slate. That’s because Keenan Allen, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce were all fantastic plays (particularly Keenan Allen, who Rudy’s projections had as the #1 WR on the slate by far), and would have all had significant ownership. You’d be looking at many lineups with a bad performance (Kelce and his 9.2) and a complete dud (the zero from Allen as he got hurt). You’d also be looking at a lot of lineups that picked either Jackson or Damien Williams, but not both, and the difference (27.3 for Williams, 16 for Jackson) would likely put the Jackson lineups drawing very thin, and possibly render them drawing dead if they played Allen and Kelce with that money. Alas, the game was on Thursday, so while it made for great TV, and made for an interesting showdown slate, only those who played the full Thursday-Monday slate care about it’s effects on a full slate. If you did play the Thursday-Monday slate, and you played Keenan Allen (and you did not play Jackson or Williams), I’d highly suggest pivoting your lineup to high-upside non-chalk plays to try to make up the lost ground.

Sometimes when you stream, you get House of Cards season 1, but sometimes you get Fuller House. We hope that our rosters are set at this point in the season, but injuries and bad match-ups happen and you may be scrambling around looking for streaming options and hopefully I can at least reach Netflix Arrested Development level with these recommendations for this week.

It was a challenging week in Propageddon. Two readers, DanForn and Jason Batteiger tied, with a 7/12. The AI smoked the humans, as Rudy’s Pigskinonator put up a 9. Don’t anger the machines. Sign up for a free trial and finish your season strong. I’m not any kinder this week, with another dozen doozies on tap with THIS WEEK’S PROPS.
