Week 15 Fantasy Football Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Must Start: D’Onta Foreman – RB – Titans at Steelers

Foreman has been on a two-game streak of solid performances. While there was a lot of confusion about who would be the lead running back between him and Dontrell Hilliard last week based upon each of their performances, it is safe to assume that Foreman will be the lead back going forward. Last week he had 13 rushes for 47 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for 15 yards. This week he faces the Steelers, who have been atrocious against the run, allowing over 190 yards in two of their last three games. The Titans are still without A.J. Brown, so it is safe to say that they will continue with the ground-and-pound, approach heavily utilizing Foreman.

Must Start: Hunter Renfrow – WR – Raiders at Browns

Despite the Raiders offense being near nonexistent over the last two games, Renfrow has still been a dominant force. Last week he had 13 receptions on 14 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown. He is currently sitting as the WR16 in half-PPR and should be considered a must-start weekly, but he is not given that respect by most. The Browns are dealing with COVID issues, so Renfrow has top-12 upside.

Must Start: Taysom Hill – QB – Saints at Buccaneers

Hill is the perfect example of a player that exemplifies how fantasy football and real-world success are wildly different. He is far from a great quarterback, but due to the amount that he rushes, he is able to finish as a top-end quarterback weekly, scoring over 20 points in his last two starts. Last week he had 15 completions on 21 attempts for 175 yards and ran 11 times for 73 yards and two touchdowns. While the matchup against the Buccaneers is not an easy one, Hill will provide value this week.

Must Start: Zach Ertz – TE – Cardinals at Lions

With DeAndre Hopkins expected to miss the rest of the regular season, one huge benefactor of that will be Ertz. Obviously, players like A.J. Green and Christian Kirk will also get a bump up from this. James Conner is also banged up, and if he does miss, that  will lead to more red-zone looks for Ertz. Last week Ertz had five receptions on seven targets for 42 yards. Against a bottom-tier defense in the Lions, there is a good chance that Ertz will have one of his best showings on the season.

Must Sit: Miles Sanders – RB – Eagles vs. Washington

Sanders is expected to play this week after nursing an ankle injury during last week’s bye. In his last game he had 24 rushes for 120 yards and three receptions for 22 yards. This was without Jordan Howard, who is expected to play this week. If Howard gets the nod to play, then starting Sanders is an immense risk, as head coach Nick Sirianni just loves to give Howard the football.

Must Sit: Jared Cook – TE – Chargers vs. Chiefs

Last week Cook had a solid performance with two receptions on five targets for 8 yards and a touchdown. However, much of the reason behind that solid game was because of the touchdown and because of Keenan Allen being out. With Cook being such a touchdown-dependent tight end, and with Allen returning this week, steer clear of Cook.

Must Sit: Ryan Tannehill – QB – Titans at Steelers

Tannehill has only eclipsed 20 fantasy points twice this season. Over the last four weeks he has had two games with fewer than 10 points. Last week he had 20 completions on 31 attempts for 191 yards and four rushes for 29 yards and a touchdown. While the Steelers are far from an elite defense, the Titans passing attack has been a disaster without A.J. Brown, so leave Tannehill on the bench.

Must Sit: Jerry Jeudy – WR – Broncos vs. Bengals

The issue with Jeudy has nothing to do with his talent and everything to do with Teddy Bridgewater and the offense becoming much more run heavy recently. Over the last three games, the Broncos rank third in rushing attempts per game (34.3). Last week Jeudy had five receptions on six targets for 47 yards. At this point in the season, starting any receivers on the Broncos is a risk.
