Welcome to Week 15. 

We’re finally done with bye weeks (huzzah!), but we’re most definitely not done with injuries and the COVID list. 

As I’m typing, I’m literally watching tweets declaring players out for this week via injury or COVID list, so we’re going to have to keep our eyes on the news to see which players become fantasy-relevant. And with that, let’s do what we do every week and see if we can find some sneaky streaming options...

Week 15 Fantasy Football Quarterback Streaming Options

Tua Tagovailoa

Tua’s been a borderline QB1 in his last five games, but I bet a lot of people don’t realize that (now you do!). He’ll be without Jaylen Waddle this week, but he still has an amazing matchup against a Jets defense that has been absolutely awful this season.

Justin Fields

After a weird (bad) start to the season, Fields has finally started to look like the top prospect many thought he was leading up to the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s finished as a QB1 in the last three full games that he’s played and gets a nice matchup against the Vikings this weekend.

More under-the-radar sneakiness: Jimmy Garoppolo, Ben Roethlisberger

Week 15 Fantasy Football Running Back Streaming Options 

Rashaad Penny

With Alex Collins and Tyler Lockett both on the COVID list, the Seahawks will have to rely upon their ground game even more. Penny looked really good last week (albeit against the Texans). While his matchup isn’t great, he should be in line for at least 15 carries this week.

Royce Freeman

Blah, I know. At the same time, however, Freeman could easily see 15 carries against a bad Jaguars defense this weekend. I don’t feel great about this, but Freeman is looking like one of the better streaming options this week.

Craig Reynolds

What are we even doing here? I don’t know, but Reynolds may very well start for the Lions this week and anyone getting starter touches in the NFL is worth a look. Especially with (seemingly) half the league either injured or on the COVID list. 

More under-the-radar sneakiness: Ameer Abdullah, Malcolm Brown, D’Ernest Johnson, Duke Johnson, Boston Scott

Week 15 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Streaming Options  

Donovan Peoples-Jones

Continuing with the attrition theme, Peoples-Jones should see plenty of targets with Jarvis Landry likely out this weekend. Peoples-Jones saw seven targets last week and could push double-digits this week.

Albert Wilson

Wilson was already trending upwards with 14 targets over his last two games, but he’s looking even better with Jaylen Waddle on the COVID list. In a solid matchup against the Jets, Wilson could see double-digit targets.

Freddie Swain

We’re digging deep here, but Tyler Lockett just ended up on the Covid list and Swain looks to be in line for a start. While D’Wayne Eskridge may make me look like an idiot here, it’s worth a risk if you’re desperate.

More under-the-radar sneakiness: Gabriel Davis, Tre’Quan Smith, Josh Reynolds, Nico Collins, Rondale Moore, Allen Lazard

Week 15 Fantasy Football Tight End Streaming Options 

Gerald Everett

Everett probably stands to benefit the most from Lockett’s absence and he’s scored in two of his last three games. While he’s a bit of a lottery ticket, you may just cash in on him this weekend.

David Njoku

Like Peoples-Jones, Njoku is one of the last men standing in Cleveland. Austin Hooper hasn’t been declared out just yet, but Njoku is in line to see a healthy amount of targets this weekend regardless.

More under-the-radar sneakiness: C.J. Uzomah, James O’Shaughnessy, Cole Kmet

Alright, my friends. That’ll do it for this week. 

I wish you all the best of luck in Week 15, and I’ll see you back here next week to see if we can find some hidden gems for Week 16!
