Fantasy Football Week 15: Start’em / Sit’em

4 of 4

Andre Johnson, @IND (60%, 13) – Questionable for Sunday with concussion related issues. I’m not going to start anyone questionable in the fantasy playoffs. You’re most likely up against a good roster and can’t afford a zero from Johnson should he play but leave the game early.

Brandon LaFell, MIA (54%, 12) – The Dolphins have a top 5 pass defense and shut-down corner Brent Grimes should be matched-up with LaFell, who is the Patriots best deep threat. There is probably a better option on your bench.

Michael Crabtree, @SEA (40%, 10) – The Niners offense is a train-wreck right now and I wouldn’t recommend starting anyone involved against a Seahawks defense that is playing as well as it has all season lately.

Mohammed Sanu, @CLE (30%, 10) – The Browns secondary is coming off a very good game against Andrew Luck and the Colts and I could see them holding the slow-footed Sanu to a disappointing fantasy day. Sanu had just 2 catches for 20 yards when these two teams played earlier this season.

Jarvis Landry, @NE (30%, 13) – Last week Pats CB Darrelle Revis held Keenan Allen to just 2 catches for 3 yards. This week he’s going to be matched up on the rookie Landry. I wouldn’t risk playing him.

Reggie Wayne, HOU (30%, 12) – A bad elbow might keep Wayne on the sidelines this week, but even if he plays I wouldn’t start him. Wayne was ineffective last week and looked like he was playing hurt.

Coby Fleener, HOU (46%, 10) – Dwayne Allen is back to cut Fleener’s targets in half and keep him on the bench in the red zone. No thanks.

Vernon Davis, @SEA (33%, 7) – I don’t know why Davis is even owned much less started in 33% of leagues.

Kyle Rudolph, @DET (30%, 7) – Still doesn’t look healthy to me and doesn’t get enough targets to deserve a spot in your starting lineup.
