NFL Fantasy Leaders: Week 15

The week 15 fantasy landscape was dominated by a mere handful of games. Take a look at the most dominant performances from the week.

Quarterbacks

Drew Brees – QB, New Orleans Saints
29.4 Points

Brees had a field day against an injury-ridden Cardinals defense. He exploded for 389 yards and 4 touchdowns on 37/48 passing.

Matt Moore – QB, Miami Dolphins
23.4 Points

Matt Moore surprised a lot of people when he stepped in for (and arguably played better than) the injured Ryan Tanehill. Moore picked apart the Jets for 236 yards through the air, along with 4 TDs. Not bad for a back up.

Running Backs

Devonta Freeman – RB, Atlanta Falcons
31.5 Points

The RB1 for Atlanta was this week’s top fantasy scorer with 31.5 points. He got there with the help of a great defensive match up against the dismal 49ers. Freeman found the end-zone three times to go along with 139 rushing yards.

LeSean McCoy – RB, Buffalo Bills
28.9 Points

Another running back that benefited from playing a terrible defense. The Bills used McCoy to generate the large majority of their offensive production, allowing him to rush for 153 yards and 2 TDs. The Browns has no answer for Shady McCoy.

Wide Receivers

Brandon Cooks – WR, New Orleans Saints
30.6 Points

When Drew Brees has a good day, chances are Brandon Cooks won’t be far behind. Cooks hauled in 2 touchdowns and racked up 185 yards. To top it off, he needed only 7 receptions to get there.

Tyler Lockett – WR, Seattle Seahawks
19.0 Points

Lockett averages just 5 fantasy points per game, usually heeding to fellow wideout Doug Baldwin for the most touches. But for second time this season, he managed to have a breakout game. Lockett nabbed 7 receptions for 130 yards and 1 TD in a blowout win against the Rams.

Tight Ends

Dion Sims – TE, Miami Dolphins
15.1 Points

Sims ended up being a red-zone favorite for back-up QB Matt Moore. He only managed 31 yards on 4 receptions, but half of those catches were touchdowns. Sims multiplied his average fantasy output by 5, a rare gem for the second string TE.

Kickers

Chris Boswell – K, Pittsburgh Steelers
23.0 Points

Chris Boswell was the 9th highest scoring fantasy player this week. As a KICKER. He went a perfect 6/6 on field goals, 5 of which were 40 yards or longer. Here’s a list of players that Boswell outscored this week:

David Johnson

Ryan Matthews

Russell Wilson

Cam Newton

Matt Ryan

Lamar Miller

Eli Manning

The Browns.

Defense

Miami Dolphins
24.0 Points

Does anyone actually know who’s playing quarterback for the Jets? Regardless, Miami had their way against their AFC East rival. The Dolphins got to the quarterback 3 times, grabbed 3 interceptions, and only gave up 13 points. An overall dominate effort.
