2021 NFL DFS Week 15 FanDuel Picks

2021-22 NFL DFS Conference Championship Weekend FanDuel Picks

Welcome back readers to my 2021 NFL DFS Week 15 FanDuel Picks.

What in the world is happening in the NFL. Players are dropping like flies to Covid at an alarming rate. It’s getting so bad out there that I’m sitting by my phone waiting for that call to suit up.  Full transparency reader every time I had a player that I liked this week, I got an alert that they were being placed on Covid protocol.

The Rams, Browns, and Washington Football Team all took some of the biggest hits, losing a number of their players. Names like Jaylen Waddle, Jarvis Landry, and Baker Mayfield. A lot of fantasy playoffs start this week and I know these names for more than likely in your lineups which will make your first round of nail-biter.

I know we all have been tilting as we got those fantasy alerts about players that might not suit up this Sunday but luckily this is the article for you. I will only be talking about players that have a shot of playing and winning you some money.  

Let’s get started building those lineups so we can salvage our week.

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins, ($7,400)

Tua has been very consistent as of late with five touchdowns in his last three games. This is the second week in a row that I’m picking on the New York Jets but last week worked out so well I figured let’s do it again. Tua is a better quarterback than Taysom Hill so he should have no problem dismantling this Jets secondary. The  Jets' pass rush won’t have a chance to get to Tua as he will stand in the pocket and pick them apart. 

FanDuel Outlook:

Tua is projected for over 19 points by Fantasy Six Pack. The Jets love giving up QB1 performances and this week will be no different. Robert Saleh is a great defensive coach but unfortunately, he does not have the personnel yet to make an impact on defense. The Miami Dolphins should be able to get whatever they want whenever they want and run up the score. 

Other QBs I like: Aaron Rogers ($7,600), Dak Prescott ($7,500), Jimmy Garoppolo ($6,000)

Javonte Williams, RB, Denver Broncos- ($7,000)

Williams could be a risky play due to the fact that he splits time with Melvin Gordon. But Williams outside should not be ignored because when he is on, he is on. Williams has had a productive rookie season with 4.8 yards per carry. Every time Williams gets the opportunity he makes the most of it. This week Williams has a chance to go up against the Cincinnati Bengals. Even if Williams and Gordon go back to a 50-50 timeshare they will not need too many touches to torch this defense.

FanDuel outlook:

Williams is projected for over 12 points by Fantasy Six Pack. Williams had a breakout game in week 13 with 178 total yards and a touchdown through the year. He also scored 20 or more fantasy points for the first time in each of the last two weeks. Williams will also be a fast passing game which will give him a higher upside than Melvin Gordon in this game. 

Other RBs I like: Antonio Gibson ($6,900), Melvin Gordon ($7,000), James Robinson ($6,300)

Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers, ($8,200)

Covid and injuries have pretty much ravaged the wide receiver position so I’m gonna go a little expensive here. Samuel is just playing great this season and he has been healthy for the most part. He reminds me a little of Cordarrelle Patterson but Samuel is more involved in the offense. Samuel is going up against the Atlanta Falcons who have been bad against every position this season. Look for the 49ers' offense to stay on a roll as Samuel will dominate this week. 

FanDuel outlook:

Samuel is projected for over 14 points by Fantasy Six Pack. Whether he is lining up at wide receiver or waiting for the ball in the backfield one thing is for sure is he is going to steamroll over whatever defender gets in his way. Don’t let Samuels price steer you away from this dynamic receiver. He is $800 cheaper than Cooper Kupp, and Samuel is in a better match-up. Samuel has the potential to go nuclear this week so don’t miss out on those points. 

Other WRs I like: Ja' Marr Chase ($7,500) CeeDee Lamb ($7,400), Brandin Cooks ($6,000), 

Zach Ertz, TE, Arizona Cardinals, ($5,300)

With DeAndre Hopkins done for the rest of the regular season, those targets need to go somewhere. Enter Zach Ertz who can soak up some of those targets especially during short-yardage situations. He gives Kyler Murray a big body to throw to when he needs to move the chains. He may also be involved in the Red Zone to give him that extra added potential for touchdowns. I like Ertz this week and I have him in a lot of my lineups. 

FanDuel outlook:

Zach Ertz is projected for almost 10 points by Fantasy Six Pack. When news of DeAndre Hopkins's injury broke my first thought was Ertz is going to be someone Kyler Murray will lean on. Hopkins was the guy Murry went to when he was in trouble and now Ertz will fit that role perfectly and supply great fantasy value in the meantime. Ertz's price tag makes him the perfect guy for your lineups especially since you. 

Other TEs I like: George Kittle ($7,800), Dallas Goedert ($6,000), Noah Fant ($5,600)
