2017 Fantasy Football Week 15 Rankings


Fantasy Football is awesome and cruel at the same time. Take my first week of the playoffs for instance. I went into the Sunday night game up 86 points, only to watch Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown turn that into a 16 point lead. My opponent was not done having Amendola left on Monday night.

I watched as Amendola trickled the lead down to six points when he caught a 23-yard pass with just under two minutes to go and got tackled at the one-inch line. When he caught the ball and was running toward the endzone, my heart about stopped.  I thought my season was over in that league. To my relief he was stopped short and my season continues.

That was the good. The bad is in the same league I have lost Carson Wentz to a torn ACL. I’m going to guess a lot of people who have made it this far are dealing with the same thing. We could all complain, or instead, we can use the 2017 Fantasy Football Week 15 Rankings to pick the next best option for the Fantasy Football Playoffs.
