Week 15

Note: The charts show my comfort level for starting each player at that position.  If you see a “+” sign next to a player, that means I can see them playing better than the level I have them listed at.  I tend to rank players at their floors, so no minus signs will be necessary.  Read through the comments for each game to get the detail behind the charts.  Good luck!

Comments:

Le’Veon Bell remains the only guy we can trust in our lineups for the Jets, but only as an RB2 in PPR leagues.

Sam Darnold is a fringe QB2 play in Superflex leagues.

Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder are risky WR3/Flex options and might be best left on the bench.

Lamar Jackson should continue to post top 5 numbers at minimum.

Mark Ingram has a tough Jets run defense to get through but should still be viewed as an RB2 with RB1 upside.

Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews remains the only targets we can trust in our lineups.
