Top DFS values for Week 15
After sorting through this week’s price sheets, I’ve found some valuable players for our Week 15 rosters. As I have done every week, I used my prediction models—which I’ve written about in the past—to find the players with the most value at each position on all three major DFS sites. I also accounted for injuries and matchups when I made my picks.
Most of the well-known fantasy studs and superstars have been excluded. Even though I think many of them have a lot of value this week, I don’t think it’s necessary to explain why.
Now, lets dive into some of my most value picks for Week 15. I’ve included many of the players’ projected floor and ceiling scores (PPR). They give us clear indication of who has good GPP potential (high ceiling), and who should be used primarily in cash games (high floor). The prices listed below each player are the ones I consider to be a good values this week.
Alex Smith at Baltimore
Smith is 15th among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring this season. He’s the epitome of a game manager. He has a 15:4 touchdown-to-inception ratio after 399 passing attempts. He averages 28 rushing yards per game. He rarely puts up big fantasy points, but his ball protection and rushing yards give him a nice floor.
He may have one of his rare big games this week. The Ravens defense is stout against the run (43.8), but vulnerable in pass coverage (-22.3). Smith will have increased success airing out the ball in this matchup. His floor is nine points, and his ceiling is 30. He’s a nice cash-game value play this week.
