Week fifteen of the 2016 NFL Season is upon us! If you're still looking for fantasy help this late in the season, congratulations on making it this far. The playoffs are here, and if you're looking to add one or two players, that means that you are likely in the playoffs. The waiver wire is fairly barren at this point, but there are still some players out there that can help. Who do I like this week? Here are some thoughts. Hope this helps, and happy streaming!--Mike B.
Sam Bradford, QB, Minnesota Vikings. Last week, Bradford was a top 5 fantasy quarterback. This week, he gets to play against the Colts. Could he repeat his performance as a top 5 fantasy option against Indy? It's a possibility. Give him a look this week.
Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens. This week, Flacco has a nice matchup coming against the Eagles. He performed better than expected against the Patriots, and could put up big numbers against a weak Philadelphia roster.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers will likely get behind early against the Atlanta Falcons. That means lots of passing attempts to catch up. This could be a good week to start Colin Kaepernick if you're desperate at QB.
Matt Moore, QB, Miami Dolphins. Want to do something crazy? Is your season over but are you still playing for a consolation game? Plug Matt Moore in and see what he does. He once showed potential as a quarterback, but became relegated to a career backup role. He could put up some surprising numbers this week.
Kenneth Farrow, RB, San Diego Chargers. Farrow hasn't put enough on tape to allow for a true evaluation at the NFL level. Still, if Melvin Gordon doesn't play this week, Farrow is the starter for the Chargers in week 15. He's worth a grab and potential start depending on how the injury report plays out.
Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings. If your championship game is in week 17, grab Peterson just in case he plays in the final week of the season. He's worth a stash, but may not play unless the Vikings clinch a playoff berth.
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets. Powell is always a flex option, but with Matt Forte injuring his knee in week 14, Powell could have an extremely big game this week. He's worth a look in all leagues this week.
Dwayne Washington, RB, Detroit Lions. If Riddick is out this week, then Washington will likely be the top RB in the Detroit offense. Worth a stash, especially if you're a Riddick owner.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers. I never root for an injury, but there is the real potential for Le'Veon Bell to get dinged up heading down the stretch. If it's going to happen, it might be most likely against the Bengals in what should be an intensely physical game. Williams is a worthwhile stash right now.
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons. Gabriel is a boom or bust type of prospect, but with the Falcons WRs dealing with injuries, this could be a good game to start Gabriel. He's always a big play threat, but could receive a significant proportion of targets this week.
Pierre Garcon, WR, Washington Redskins. Garcon is gone in most leagues, but check your waiver wire. If you're in a PPR league, he's even more valuable. He's been exceedingly productive the past few weeks, and should put up starter worthy numbers again this week in PPR formats. Well worth a grab.
AJ Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals. Did a desperate AJ Green owner cut AJ in your league when he got injured? Grab him now before he returns. AJ Green could be back in action in time for a week 15 matchup against Pittsburgh.
Ty Montgomery, WR/RB, Green Bay Packers. Montgomery has earned a large number of carries with the Packers in recent weeks. This week, he gets to face the Bears, a team he broke out against in a big way in week 7. Worth an add and start in all formats.
JJ Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals. Nelson is a classic boom-or-bust receiver. He's dependent on big plays to put up fantasy value, but if he gets them, he will be a huge help to your team. If you need a flex play, Nelson against the Saints could have a really nice game. He could also put up a dud, so be prepared for either option.
Adam Thielen, WR, Minnesota Vikings. Thielen has been the Vikings leading receiver the past five weeks. That makes him a sneaky option in all formats, but an especially good one in PPR ones. Against a weak Colts secondary, he could have a big game.
Charles Clay, TE, Buffalo Bills. First time I've recommended Clay in a while, but against a Browns team that is exceedingly generous to opposing TEs, Clay could be a worthwhile spot start this week.
Atlanta Falcons D/ST. This week the Falcons play the 49ers. Enjoy.
Baltimore Ravens D/ST. If the Ravens defense is still somehow available in your league, you want them against the Eagles. This is a great matchup for this unit.
Buffalo Bills D/ST. The Bills play the Browns in Buffalo, and RGIII is a pick machine this week. Enjoy.
Miami Dolphins D/ST. The Dolphins pull a nice matchup against the New York Jets this week. The Jets offense has struggled lately, and with Forte potentially out, this could be a great matchup for the Dolphins.
