Daily Fantasy Football Sleepers & Value Plays for Sunday, December 15th
Welcome to Fantasy Alarm.com's Daily NFL Sleepers and Value Plays For Sunday December 15th where you will find some Discounted Dandies for Week 15 of the Fantasy Football Season (using DraftStreet prices) at each position. Hopefully the weather is a little more cooperative for us this weekend, and if you want to get an early look at what to expect from Mother Nature view this week's NFL Weather Report by our own Ivar G. Anderson. Best of luck this week, and may all our picks bring sunshine and rainbows (with a pot of gold at the end).
* Matt Ryan ATL (13.3%) we all know how much better Ryan plays at home/indoors, of Ryan’s 20-plus Fantasy Point games this season all have come indoors. Roddy White is healthy and producing, and they face a Washington team that has the second highest defensive passing touchdown percentage in the league and opposing quarterbacks are completing about 67% of their passes (fifth highest in the league).
* Joe Flacco BAL (11.5%) you do not have to worry about the weather this week with Flacco as the game is indoors in Detroit versus a Lions team that is tied for fourth fewest sacks. I am not one to ignore or dismiss stats, but there are some exceptions, which in the case of the Lions defense against quarterbacks the past two games I think we can look past last week’s snow game and the week before that where the Lions faced a combo of Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien and take a look at the six previous games prior to Week 13. In that six game span the Lions allowed 16 passing touchdowns and an average of 21 Fantasy Points to opposing quarterbacks. Add in the fact that the Lions secondary is banged up with a couple defensive backs as game-time decisions.
* Kirk Cousins WAS (11%) the photo above suggests that at least one person is happy that RGIII has been benched and there could be more happy campers if you roll with Cousins and he takes advantage of the tasty matchup versus a Falcons team that prior to last week had the second fewest sacks in the leagues. The Falcons are currently allowing the fourth most Fantasy Points to quarterbacks and the second highest completion percentage at 67.1% (tied with the Panthers). I also like Browns Jason Campbell this week, but he will cost you over $1,200 more than Cousins and there is a chance of snow in Cleveland this weekend.
