D/ST Rankings & Streamers for Week 15 Fantasy Football

Welcome to the D/ST rankings and streamers for Week 15 fantasy football.

It was another strong week for fantasy defenses in Week 14, as eight teams scored you more than 10 fantasy points. The top scorers of the week were the Chiefs who continued their fine run of form, putting on a show against the Raiders and scoring 24 fantasy points thanks to 4 sacks, 5 total turnovers, a defensive touchdown and just 9 points allowed.  Just behind the Chiefs came the Titans (21 points) who shut out the hopeless Jaguars and the Cowboys (20 points) who also went turnover crazy (4) against Washington. My top streaming option of the week were the Seahawks who were OK in getting you 6 points against the Texans as the DST13. Sadly my DFS play of the week was not good at all as the Panthers only scored you 2 points in a divisional loss to the Falcons.

I go again in Week 15 to bring you my D/ST rankings for the next round of matchups, and with no bye weeks left, its all 32 teams to rank for the rest of the season. I will continue to post my rankings each week, give you a team you can look to stream, and my favorite DFS plays for the week ahead.

These rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any news drops to see how it’s reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific DST starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.

Stream of the Week: Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars (15% rostered)

The Jaguars are about as hot a mess as there is in the NFL and their 31st ranked offense per my NEFF ratings is there for the taking this week. The Texans defense hasn’t been dominant to any extent, but every team needs a get healthy game every once in a while and if you’re looking for an edge in your playoff lineup this week then they are sat on the majority of waiver wires for you to exploit.

Alternative streamer – Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears (16% rostered)

DFS Play of the Week: Buffalo Bills ($3,100) vs Carolina Panthers

The Panthers’ offense has been another mess of late, with Cam Newton not able to turn around the downturn in output that started with Sam Darnold. The Bills need a get right game after three losses in their last four games and have been at their best this season getting after poor offenses. The value is great for a what I’m ranking as the DST5 for Week 15 so will happily be looking at the Bills in my DFS lineups this week.

Alternative DFS play – Dallas Cowboys ($3,600) @ New York Giants
