fanduel week 15 dolphins thirsty, Jaylen waddle

Fanduel Week 15


The Dolphins play on the first Saturday slate of the NFL season. In the night game they will face the Bills in cold Buffalo. The weather has hindered even one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in the Bills’ Josh Allen as he has thrown for 147 and 223 yards in two bad-weather games in his last two outings. This is something to take into account when playing Dolphins players. It is supposed to be a cold and snowy game Saturday night. Are you for Fanduel Week 15?


Quarterbacks Fanduel Week 15


Tua’s price on Fanduel is down to $7,800 after three-straight games with less than 16 Fanduel points. This week may prove to be another tough one due to their opponent in the Bills and the rough, snowy weather. The price on him is down though which makes him a less risky play.


On this three-game Saturday slate we also have two low-priced quarterbacks with high upside. Those two are Tyler Huntley and Deshaun Watson for the Ravens and Browns, respectively. While they both have high upside due to their running ability, they also have low floors. Both have started two games so far this season and both had a six-point and a 17-point game. Huntley is just $6,700 and Watson is just $6,800 for Week 15 of Fanduel though. Great prices.


Running Backs


There are five players priced higher than Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. on this three-game Saturday slate. As we predicted, the Dolphins want them to share carries. It looked like Wilson would get more work in week 14 than Mostert before he got injured. In the end, Mostert ended with just 11 carries and Wilson had four. Combined they had less than eight Fanduel points. It seems that they both should be ready to go for this game but against Buffalo, they could go to the hot hand, whoever that may be. It seems both are touchdown dependent at this point.


The higher priced running backs could be great plays on this slate. Jonathan Taylor is so expensive though at $9,000 but has a good matchup against Minnesota. Dalvin Cook at $8,200 arguably has a better matchup against the Colts and could turn in a great performance. Another option at running back could be J.K. Dobbins who was expected to be eased back into the lineup but broke out with 15 carries for 120 yards and a touchdown last week. Dobbins is just $6,600. Lots of options for Week 15 of Fanduel action!


Wide Receivers


Tyreek Hill seems to always find a way to have a big game. Last week he had a modest four catches for 81 yards and a touchdown which would have been a fine game but he also picked up a fumble and ran 50+ yards for another touchdown. The player to worry about here is Jaylen Waddle, who has just three catches over the past two games. We are waiting for Waddle to break out of this slump and his price is still $7,300 for Week 15 of Fanduel.


You may have to choose between Hill and Justin Jefferson on this slate as Hill is $8,800 and Jefferson is $9,100. Both make for great plays Saturday. To find value on this slate it could be found with the Colts’ wide receivers. Alec Pierce and Parris Campbell are both sub $6k on Fanduel and have some nice upside in what is expected to be a high-scoring game.



Tight Ends


Now for the third-straight week, Mike Gesicki has failed to bring in one catch. That means zero fantasy points. His price remains at $4,800 though, making him the fifth most expensive tight end on Saturday. Here on other TE options for Week 15 of Fanduel.


There are three great tight end options on Saturday in Mark Andrews, T.J. Hockenson, and David Njoku. Any of those three should be good options with Hockenson probably being the best option for his price at $6,300.



Defense for Week 15 of Fanduel 


Despite the weather in Buffalo, the Bills have an implied points total of nearly 26 points. Miami has the cheapest defense on the slate and could be a decent play to save some money to get up to higher-priced-skill players this week. Don’t write their defense off on this three-game slate.


The Bills have the most-expensive defense against Miami. If you are playing a lot of Dolphins it wouldn’t make sense to play the Bills defense. At just $3,900 the Vikings get to face the Colts who have failed to reach 20 points in their last three weeks. They could make for a great value play on Saturday.
