Welcome to my quarterback rankings and top streamers for Week 15 fantasy football.
It was a great week for fantasy quarterback play in Week 14, with 11 quarterbacks scoring more than 20 points, which was the most since Week 7. One game produced the two best scores of the week with Josh Allen (35.22 points) and Tom Brady (30.12 points) fighting it out in one of the most exciting games of Week 14. In terms of my recommendations, my stream of the week in Ben Roethlisberger had a really solid outing, finishing as the QB6 with 24.82 points. My DFS start of the week in Dak Prescott was less successful as he produced just 9.94 fantasy points and leaned on the Dallas defense to secure a win.
With no more bye weeks, I have a full slate of quarterbacks to rank this week and give you my fantasy football quarterback rankings for Week 15, breaking down my key streamers (% rostered via Sleeper) and my favorite DFS plays for the week ahead (price via DraftKings).
These rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any quarterback news drops to see how it is reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific quarterback rankings or starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.
Stream of the Week: Tua Tagovailoa vs New York Jets (40% rostered)
Tua has been a steady if unspectacular fantasy quarterback in 2021, but does currently sit as the QB13 in points per game with 17.27. This week he faces a bottom 5 defense in points allowed to quarterbacks in the Jets as comes into the game fresh after a bye week. Add in the current situation with his running backs all on the COVID list and this may necessitate a higher number of passes from Tua this week. With the Dolphins firmly in the playoff hunt, I like the prospect of Tua’s upside being a top-10 option this week.
Alternative streamer – Ben Roethlisberger vs Tennessee Titans (25% rostered)
DFS Play of the Week: Jalen Hurts ($6,600) vs Washington Football Team
I’m back on the ‘play any quarterback vs Washington’ bandwagon this week and hope that with a week’s rest that Hurts can get back to the scoring we saw in the first half of the season. The Eagles are right on the fringe of a playoff place in the NFC and a big game from Tua is on the cards to boost the Eagles’ hopes and our DFS prospects for Week 15.
Alternative DFS play – Jimmy Garoppolo ($5,800) vs Atlanta Falcons
