Week 15 of the NFL season is here and with it comes an 10-game main slate on DraftKings and FanDuel. This slate is loaded with top tier talent and teams such as Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry and Travis Kelce. While its certainly OK to roster players figure that figure to be popular this week, the point of this article is to find some contrarian plays with similar upside that can help differentiate you in your GPP contests this week. So, with that said, let's look at some players projected to be less than 10% rostered this week.

Top FanDuel & DraftKings NFL DFS Week 15 Contrarian Plays

Joe Flacco, QB Cleveland Browns

Flacco has thrown over 40 pass attempts in each of his first two starts this season for the Browns and now here in Week 15 he has a home matchup against a Bears defense that certainly struggles on the defensive side of the football. Flacco may have to contend with some rain in this game and the total is only set at 37.5 but the volume of passing and matchup should set him up for another shot at a multi-touchdown performance at less than five-percent rostership.

Derrick Henry, RB Tennessee Titans

In his last five games against the Houston Texans Derrick Henry is averaging over 200 yards rushing and two touchdowns. No, that isn't a typo, Henry is averaging over 200 yards rushing per game over his last five games against the Texans. Yes, I understand that year-to-year things change but Henry is on a roll right now, totaling six rushing touchdowns over the past three weeks and now has the Texans matchup while his rostership sits at less than 10-percent? Sign me up!

Rashid Shaheed, WR New Orleans Saints

Chris Olave is not expected to play this week which means the returning Shaheed should be the WR1 for the Saints this week in their home matchup against the New York Giants. Yes, the Giants have been playing slightly better defense over the past few weeks, they are still not very good and we should figure to see Carr target Sheheed downfield on Sunday.

Logan Thomas, TE Washington Commanders

I don't really understand this one as Thomas has one of the best DvP matchups on the board in a game with one of the highest game totals. The Rams give up big performances to pass catching tight ends week-after-week which included Isaiah Likely last week against Baltimore and if this game is going to live up to the 50.5 game total expectations than you have to think Thomas will factor in somewhere.
