DFS - Fantasy Football - NFL DraftKings Lineup - Week 15 - 12/16/18
Here is my NFL DraftKings Lineup for Week 15!
I'm going to try and stack as much of the NE/PIT game as I can as I'm expecting a high scoring shootout in Pittsburgh this afternoon. We're going with Brady as he looked good last week and will pair him with his two best WR's in Edelman & Gordon. For Pittsburgh, as I think Gilmore will be on Brown, I think JuJu Smith-Schuster is in for another big game and as I like him as Big Ben seems to target him the most in the Red Zone.
At the RB position, our main back will be Devin Cook as he looks fully back from his injury earlier this season and has an outstanding matchup agianst Miami who had struggled agianst RB’s all season. Cook has at least 16.6 DraftKings points over his last 3 weeks and as he has seen 17 targets over the last two weeks, I think he has great value today.
For a value play at our 2nd RB position, I’m going Kenneth Dixon as he is just $3,500 and has one of the best matchups of the day agianst the Tampa Bay defense. Dixon will be sharing time with Gus Edwards, however, Dixons looked great last week as he had 59 yards and a TD on just 8 carries. Dixon is much more explosive than Edwards and as John Harbaugh mentioned that Dixon will see an extended role as the season goes on, I think he is worth the chance at just $3,500.
Oakland has the honor of playing the Cincinnati Bengals defense this week, which has basically been a punching bag for opposing offenses as of late, and because of that, I’m pairing both Jared Cook & Jordy Nelson. Cook has back-to-back 100+ receiving games and Nelson has become more of a main focus in the passing attack as he has 16 receptions (18 targets) for 145 receiving yards over the past two week.
On defense, I'm going with a value pick in the Giants as the weather is going to be bad in New York today and Tennessee is averaging just 16 ppg in their 6 games away from home this season.
