4 days agoToronto Maple Leafs forward John Tavares picked up two goals and an assist Tuesday night as Toronto topped Vancouver 4-1. Tavares had been in a bit of a cold streak, having no points in each of his last three games, but made up for lost time quickly with a season-high three points. Typically a reliable point producer, Tavares has only two pointless streaks this season longer than two games, but both have come in the last month. That should be viewed as nothing more than random variation though as Tavares has seen his shots per game and time on ice per game averages rise in the three weeks since Sheldon Keefe took over as head coach.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys tight end Blake Jarwin is not a strong fantasy option for Week 15 despite a strong performance in Week 14. Jarwin caught six passes for 50 yards against the Bears last week, but it was the first time this season he'd even been targeted more than four times. He's likely to sink back into the two-or-three targets per game life this week against the Los Angeles Rams and makes for nothing more than a dart-throw tight end option.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is a floor-play only for a Week 15 contest against the Los Angeles Rams. Witten has seen plenty of targets lately, with seven in Week 14 and right in Week 13, but he's only come up with 11 catches for 79 yards total in both games. He's one of the least likely players in fantasy football to put up a goose egg in your lineup, but he's also very unlikely to put up a game-changing score, even in PPR. He's a tight end to play when you only need to reach a floor in your matchup, otherwise, even in a position as shallow as tight end, there are likely higher upside options on the waiver wire.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb had a nice flash in the pan moment a few weeks ago, but it looks like he's settled back into fantasy irrelevance in most formats. Cobb saw at least seven targets for four games in a row from Week 9 to Week 12, but saw just eight balls thrown his way in Weeks 13 and 14 combined. That much smaller target share will likely continue in Week 15 against the Los Angeles Rams. Cobb is nothing more than a desperation dart-throw type wide receiver and is not a recommended starter in most formats.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is a strong WR2 option for a Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Rams. With Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey likely shadowing Amari Cooper in this one, Gallup could be more of the first look for quarterback Dak Prescott than usual. Coming off a game in which he led the Cowboys in receiving with 109 yards, Gallup is a strong WR2 option with upside for Week 15.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is a solid choice in any Week 15 fantasy lineup. Cooper looked a bit slow in Week 14 due to his previous injuries, but he'll have had 10 days to heal up even more before the Cowboys take on the Rams on Sunday afternoon. With the Cowboys offense struggling somewhat of late and Jalen Ramsey likely attached to Cooper all day, Cooper's usual upside is a bit limited, making him more of a high-end WR2 this week.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard should return from an ankle injury that kept him out of Week 14, but shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups. Pollard will be strictly a backup to Ezekiel Elliott in what is expected to be a close game. Elliott should be on the field for almost every snap, leaving Pollard to only reach relevance if the starter were to get injured. Most leagues will have someone with a clearer path to touches on the waiver wire. Pollard remains no more than a handcuff for Elliott owners.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott should be a solid fantasy contributor in a Week 15 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Elliott scored twice in Week 14 despite the Cowboys inexplicably going away from the running game for long stretches. Hopefully, coach Jason Garrett feeds his star running back in this one. Elliott comes in as a top-half RB1 for this matchup.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoDallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is expected to play in Week 15 and has a decent matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Prescott suffered a sprained left hand and an injured index finger on his throwing hand in Week 14's Thursday night loss to the Chicago Bears. With 10 days to rest, Prescott should be good to go against the Rams. Still, he's been struggling along with the whole Dallas offense of late and a possible flare up of the injuries won't help. Prescott hasn't been great on the field lately, but he's still been producing solid fantasy numbers. He's a low-end QB1 for Week 15.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoThe Philadelphia Eagles Defense have an excellent matchup in Week 15 against Washington. While the Eagles looked rough against the Miami Dolphins in Week 13 and came out slumping in the first half of Week 14 against the New York Giants, they were able to put it together and play well for the second half of Monday's win. The Eagles defense is a little risky because they have shown the capacity to fall apart against lesser competition, but the Washington offense is last in the NFL in scoring and allows the fifth most points to opposing fantasy defenses. The risk should be worth the reward this week.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
Share:
4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott is a decent kicking option in a Week 15 game against Washington. The Eagles shouldn't have too much difficulty scoring on a weak Washington defense, but Elliott does seem to be in a bit of a slump lately. After starting the season off with 12 perfect weeks without a missed field goal, Elliott has missed two of his last six tries. He's still a K1, and should be fine in a fantasy lineup this week.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoBuffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel scored twice at even strength during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues. The 23-year-old phenom has tallied 25 points during his 14-game point streak. Eichel is up to 20 goals, 22 assists, and 13 power-play points through 32 games this season. He is one of the top offensive options in the entire league and is carrying the Sabres on a nightly basis. Lock Eichel into fantasy lineups for the remainder of the season and throw away the key.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

4 days agoMontreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher scored a goal and an assist during Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. The pesky forward has produced six points during his current four-game point streak. Gallagher is coming off of back-to-back seasons with more than 30 goals, and he continues to serve in a top-line role for the Canadiens. The 27-year-old is even more valuable in multi-category leagues that track hits, shots on goal, and blocks. The Canadiens will be right back at it on Wednesday night against the Ottawa Senators.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is a strong option for Week 15 fantasy lineups. Going up against an easy Washington defense, Goedert has the added benefit of working as one of the top receiving options for Carson Wentz. Dealing with a decimated wide receiver corps, the Eagles will almost certainly rely on their running backs and tight ends to move the ball in this matchup. Goedert could end up behind only Zach Ertz in passing game pecking order. He's a mid-range TE1 with touchdown upside.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoMontreal Canadiens left wing Tomas Tatar scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night. The Slovakian forward is leading the Canadiens in scoring to start the season with 27 points in 31 games. Tatar has fit in marvelously since coming to the team ahead of the 2018-19 campaign. He is a productive winger that has scored 45 points or more four times in his NHL career. Tatar is deserving of ownership in the majority of fantasy formats as he continues to play in a top-line role for the Canadiens.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz will likely be the focus of the Eagles offense in Week 15 against Washington. With a wide receiver crew made up of unproven rookies and guys no one has ever heard of, the Eagles will likely rely on their running backs and tight ends in the passing game. Ertz got off to somewhat of a slow start this season, but he's turned back into his elite TE1-self lately, including his two touchdowns in Week 14. He's one of the top three options at the position for Week 15.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward will play a significant role in Week 15's game against Washington. At the end of Monday night's overtime win against the New York Giants, Ward was literally the only healthy wide receiver left wearing an Eagles uniform. Rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (hamstring) is expected to be ready to go on Sunday, but he and Ward make up the entire Eagles wide receiving corps for now. Ward saw nine targets in Week 14 after seeing 10 total in the 13 weeks before. The Eagles will likely focus their passing game on their running backs and tight ends, but Ward could be a sneaky-good play this week, especially in DFS leagues.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside should play a significant role in Week 15's game against Washington. With the Eagles wide receiver corps decimated, Arcega-Whiteside is one of only two healthy receivers left on the roster. He showed flashes of dominance in the preseason but has turned that into just eight catches for 130 yards and one touchdown this season. He came up limping with a hamstring injury at the end of Monday night's game, but he is reportedly "fine" and will be ready to go on Sunday. Arcega-Whiteside comes with some nice upside this week, but he has a very low floor, as the Eagles could just focus on running backs and tight ends in their passing game.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor's Week 15 status is still "up in the air" according to Eagles coach Doug Pederson. Agholor wouldn't be a recommended option even if he were to suit up for this one. Despite a good matchup against a struggling Washington defense, Agholor would be at high risk of reinjury and an early exit. Besides that, his upside is not nearly high enough to be worth the risk of him being used as a decoy or having to leave the game early. Fantasy owners in redraft leagues still holding onto Agholor may want to consider using his roster spot for someone with more upside and a better chance to contribute in the next two weeks.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could be a suddenly fantasy-relevant option in Week 15. Taking on a struggling Washington defense, Scott could reprise his role from Week 14, where he ran the ball 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 69 more yards. Scott will still be playing behind Miles Sanders in Week 15, but if he shows the burst he did against the New York Giants, he'll certainly be in line for more touches. He's a risky play because of his position on the depth chart, but he's basically free in most leagues and could make a significant impact if things go his way.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders should play a big role in Week 15's game against Washington. Sanders will be relied upon heavily as seemingly every wide receiver on the Eagles roster is injured at this point. The name of the game for the Eagles offense will likely be short passes to running backs and tight ends. Sanders was thoroughly outplayed by Boston Scott in Week 14, but Sanders is the more talented, better regarded back and should have a chance to establish that against the struggling Washington defense. He's a strong RB2 option with some extra upside in PPR leagues.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is an okay option in fantasy lineups for Week 15. Wentz has an excellent matchup against the Washington defense, but he will be without most of his wide receivers in this one. Short passes to running backs and crossing routes to tight ends should be the name of the game in this one, limiting Wentz's upside. He still comes in as a low-end QB1 and looked great in stretches on Monday night, but also had some not-so-great moments mixed in.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoWashington Redskins running back Derrius Guice will not play again this season after being placed on IR with an MCL sprain. Both Guice's real-life team and fantasy owners have to be starting to wonder just how many serious knee injuries one player can withstand. After missing the entire 2018 season with a torn ACL and now this move to IR, Guice will wrap up the first two years of his career having appeared in just five games. Adrian Peterson will lead Washington's running game for the rest of the season, while Chris Thompson figures to step back into a somewhat prominent pass-catching role for the Redskins.--Chris O'Reilly - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoTampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed one goal on 28 shots during Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers. The Russian netminder was close to recording his first shutout of the season, but Evgenii Dadonov spoiled the party with two minutes remaining in the third period. Vasilevskiy has not been the impenetrable force he was during the 2018-19 season, but he is still an elite fantasy goalie. He owns a 12-8-1 record to go along with a 2.82 goals-against average and .910 save percentage. His next projected start comes on Thursday against the daunting Boston Bruins.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

4 days agoPortland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside imposed his will in a blowout win versus the Knicks on Tuesday night, posting 17 points on seven of 11 shooting with 11 rebounds and five blocks. Whiteside is up for a new contract this summer, and he's certainly showing out with three-year highs in points, rebounds and blocks per game. He's also shooting a career high from the free-throw line and his second-best mark from the field, all in less than 30 minutes of nightly action. Jusuf Nurkic will eventually make his return but will require significant time to re-establish himself. As a result, expect Whiteside's two-way dominance to play a prominent role for Portland and continue to reward every fantasy owner who took a chance on this uber-talented big man on draft day.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

4 days agoTampa Bay Lightning right wing Steven Stamkos opened the scoring during Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers. Stamkos has been offering top-tier production as of late, tallying four goals and three assists over his past five games. The 29-year-old started his NHL career as one of the most feared snipers in the league, but he has transitioned into more of a playmaking role as he ages. Stamkos has 11 goals, 16 assists, and 11 power-play points in 26 games this season. He is a valuable fantasy commodity that needs to be in lineups each time he takes the ice. --Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

4 days agoNew York Knicks guard Allonzo Trier finally saw a string of minutes against the Blazers and did not waste any of them, scoring a quick 13 points in 14 minutes. This was the most playing time Trier had seen in a month, and he also went two of five from beyond the arc. Trier's numbers have regressed this season, but so have his minutes per game. Per 36 minutes, however, his scoring rises significantly compared to his rookie season. He's certainly not worth picking up right now on a crowded Knicks roster. As more trade possibilities become available and the deadline passes, he could be an intriguing option to fill up the scoring column for a team with nothing to play for.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

4 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is done for the year after suffering a non-contact foot injury during Monday night's game. Jeffery went down in the second quarter and won't return until next season. It's a huge blow to the Eagles, who have one of the thinnest wide receiver groups in the NFL. Jeffery looked like he'd lost a step this year and it's unlikely he'll look any quicker next season. With such a shallow group at wide receiver, Jeffery will probably be back with the Eagles next season, but his days as a strong fantasy starter are almost surely behind him.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

4 days agoNew York Knicks forward Julius Randle was one of the few on the team to have some semblance of a good game against Portland, scoring 15 points on six of 11 shooting to go with seven rebounds and three assists across 25 minutes. It doesn't look like the head coach was the entire problem in New York, as the Knicks lost by 28. All of Randle's numbers are down from a season ago, which isn't surprising given the clunky state of New York's roster. More alarming, though, is Randle's career-high 3.5 three-point attempts per game, of which he is canning just 23.8 percent. Until he can return to some semblance of the bully ball he played down in New Orleans, Randle won't meet fantasy expectations, even on a team begging for someone to take control of the offense.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

4 days agoPortland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum wasn't himself against the Knicks, shooting just five of 14 from the field and one of eight from distance for 13 points. Whereas his backcourt mate couldn't miss, McCollum was off his game and has been over his last three outings, where he's failed to shoot above 40 percent from the field. McCollum's rebounds and assists per game are up from a season ago and his overall scoring numbers and percentages are still rock-solid, so maybe just call this a mini slump and hope for a bounce-back game at Denver on Thursday.--Daniel Lubofsky - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
