If you are still reading this article you are one of the elite few fantasy players who are in the playoffs and are competing to win a league championship. You have played extremely well this season and have likely made several savvy moves that have put you into this position, including being a supporter of Fantasy Couch and our affiliates. That being said, I urge you to put all your focus this week on studying your opponent and his/her matchups, increasing your upside and minimizing your risks when setting your lineups. Don’t get cute and mess up your chances for a chance to win the championship belt by overthinking things. Now for the list…

Week 15 Start ’em

Blake Bortles – Jax QB

Bortles has quickly become one of the most consistent quarterbacks over the past three weeks, and has a plus matchup against a 20th ranked Houston secondary that has allowed 346 yards per game through the air. With the return of rookie wideout Dede Westbrook giving him another outside threat, Bortles is poised to have another multi-TD game which is something you can count on in the playoffs.

Week 15 Sit ’em

Robby Anderson – NYJ WR

With Bryce Petty now that starting QB for the Jets, it’s clear that Anderson’s value will take a nosedive in Week 15 against a tough Saints defense. Some people will think that there will be enough garbage time opportunities for Anderson since they will have to throw a lot in the second half, but I don’t see that being the case, especially if he is matched up with rookie shutdown corner Marshon Lattimore who returned from injury last week and had an interception.
