Josh Allen absolutely filleted the Broncos last night, throwing for 359 yards, 2 pass TDs and 2 rush TDs. The Bills are the most fun team in football at the moment and a fantasy player’s dream—they throw basically every play, go for it on 4th down when the math is in their favor, and have an insane playmaker in Stefon Diggs.
In the late game, Aaron Jones (20-145-1, 3-13) finally wrestled back some of the Packers fantasy points away from Davante Adams (7-42), while DJ Moore (6-131) led the charge for the Panthers.
Whether you have some kind of combo of Allen, Diggs and Jones leading the charge for you in the semi-finals or are now chasing from behind, there’s still plenty of Week 15 action to hang your hopes and dreams on. Let’s get to everything you need to know before setting your lineup…
- Late breaking news: No Ezekiel Elliott today (hello Tony Pollard!) and almost all of the Dolphins pass catchers are out (Mike Gesicki, DeVante Parker, and Jakeem Grant). Lynn Bowden Jr. should get a ton of burn. We also have Mark Ingram as a surprise inactive.
- Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford will play today vs. the Titans despite his torn rib cartilage and right thumb injury. This is great news for TJ Hockenson, Marvin Jones, and D’Andre Swift and even for the Titans skill position players who will need this game to be competitive to put up monster numbers. This game currently has an O/U of 51 and I could easily see it soaring over that.
- Alex Smith (calf) is out for the Washington Football team and Dwayne Haskins in. Terry McLaurin actually has a larger target share with Haskins than Smith.
- Drew Brees will start for the Saints, but it sounds like we will still see a decent amount of Taysom Hill out as a “jack of all trades” asset.
INACTIVE: Jakeem Grant (hamstring), Damien Harris (ankle), Joe Mixon (foot), Julian Edelman (knee), Duke Johnson (neck), George Kittle (foot), Kenny Golladay (hip), Ronald Jones (finger), Alex Smith (calf), Antonio Gibson (toe), Julio Jones (hamstring), Ezekiel Elliott (calf), Mike Gesicki (shoulder), DeVante Parker (hamstring),
