Sharing our core plays and cheat sheet for the Week 15 Main NFL Slate on DraftKings.
In this column, we’ll share 4 core plays for DraftKings on a weekly basis, as well as our cheat sheet for the week’s main slate.
Let’s get right to it and have a look at the Main Slate!
QB – Jimmy Garoppolo, $6,100 vs ATL
Garoppolo and Emmanuel Sanders broke the slate last week – and I like Jimmy G’s chances of keeping things rolling this week going up against the Falcons secondary that has allowed the 3rd most fantasy PPG to the QB position. The Falcons are projected to put up 29.75 points this week, and I like them to clear that mark. Garoppolo is a fantastic option this week at his price point, with the only downside being the fact that he will likely be high owned.
RB – Saquon Barkley, $7,700 vs. MIA
Barkley didn’t do a ton in terms of production a week ago, but he passed the eye test to me. He faces a Miami front seven that has allowed the 8th most DK PPG on the season – and he should be featured heavily in this match-up. He is a nice pivot or compliment to the likes of Chris Carson (who is a viable option as well, and likely to be the highest owned RB of the slate) – and I expect him to have a great Week 15 against the Dolphins.
WR – Chris Conley, $3,600 @ OAK
If you are looking for a punt with upside at the WR position for one of your slots, enter Conley. With DJ Chark out, Conley should see an up-tick in targets against a Raiders secondary that has struggled to defend the deep ball all season long. There’s risk here, as there is with almost any $3,600 option any given week, but I love the spot Conley is in this week, and he opens up a lot of salary room for some high spends elsewhere.
TE – Tyler Higbee, $3,900 @ DAL
Higbee has seen 19 targets over the past two weeks, hauling in 14 passes for 223 yards and a score. He faces a Dallas defence that has given up the 10th most DK PPG on the season, and I expect the Rams to continue to utilize their personnel unit featuring two WR’s (Woods/Reynolds), and a heavy dose of Higbee through the air as a result. At this price point, he is a fantastic option this week.
