CAN we come back to Le’Veon Bell?

That’s where to start breaking down the week 15 DFS slate.

He’s coming off a thunderous 51.8 PPR points in Buffalo and thus carries a $24,050 Draftstars price tag into a matchup with division rival Cincinnati this time around.

Will he crack the half ton again? Unlikely.

But that doesn’t mean he can’t justify his cost… given rushing volume, involvement in the receiving game and TD upside.

Plug him in.

Week 15’s Best Buys is filled with value options, meaning you can put down a quarter of your salary on the Steelers’ headline act.



PODCAST! Fox Fantasy analyst Phil Prior sits down with in-house NFL mogul Laurie Horesh, breaking down the Week 15 matchups, best plays and stay-aways.

Tyrod Taylor, BUF ($16,750) v CLE

With a full complement of weapons against a Browns defence that rarely brings a shield to the fight, expect T-Mobile to strike early in a pivotal stretch for his Bills future.

Alex Smith, KC ($11,600) v TEN

The Chiefs early passing against Oakland stunned the football world last week, and also laid the platform for victory. Coach Andy Reid would be wise to keep Smith’s downfield momentum going against a suspect Tennessee back end.

Also in play:

Marcus Mariota, TEN ($12,700) @ KC
Trevor Siemian, DEN ($13,850) v NE

Running Back

Kenneth Farrow, SD ($8,900) v OAK

With Melvin Gordon down and out, the unheralded Farrow takes centre stage against Oakland’s porous rush defence in an offence-heavy AFC West tussle.

Isaiah Crowell, CLE ($9,450) @ BUF

Holding the lion’s share of the rushing workload for Cleveland in a contest that’ll be closer than Buffalo would like, Crowell could break loose two weeks in a row in fantasy’s most fruitful running back matchup.

Also in play:

Kenneth Dixon, BAL ($6,000) v PHI

Ty Montgomery, GB ($7,400) @ CHI

Wide Receiver

Corey Coleman, CLE ($8,950) @ BUF

Emerging as fellow Baylor Bear RG3’s go-to receiver, the electric rookie saw his targets jump to 11 last week, and could explode as that attention rises in Week 15.

Dontrelle Inman, SD ($10,650) v OAK

In a matchup to target, the crafty Inman has added red zone production to his repertoire in three straight games as teammate Tyrell Williams deals with shoulder limitations.

Also in play:

Sammy Watkins, BUF ($11,450) v CLE

Emmanuel Sanders, DEN ($13,200) v NE

Tight End

Travis Kelce, KC ($10,550) v TEN

Production. Matchup. That’s what the in-form dating show Star offers in Week 14, finally becoming a focal point in the Chiefs’ improving passing attack.

Ladarius Green, PIT ($8,300) @ CIN

The snow may not have been conducive to fantasy success for Green last week, but a Bengals team giving up almost 9 catches a game to tight ends certainly is.

Also in play:

Jermaine Gresham, ARI ($7,500) v NO

Antonio Gates, SD (10,800) v OAK


Packers ($6,050) @ CHI

Forget the early season narratives, the Packers defence has been buoyed by the return to health of their secondary, and in windy conditions are ready to keep the turnovers ticking against Matt Barkley’s Bears.
