Welcome to the NFL Week 15 DFS Example Lineups for the Sunday main slate. If you're already reading this, it means you've already gone through all the NFL DFS content Fantasy Alarm has to offer and you've built a few lineups. If not, go back to the NFL DFS Playbook first and then hit all of the DFS coaching pieces as well. Then build yourself a few potentially winning DFS lineups and use what I have here as a sounding board for feedback. We've got another back-loaded slate where the three late games – Dallas Cowboys/Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers/Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams/Washington Commanders – have the highest game totals and are filled with players everyone is going to use. Christian McCaffrey, Matthew Stafford. Josh Allen, Dak Prescott, Cooper Kupp and Kyren Williams are all projected as highly rostered, according to our NFL DFS Ownership Projections. You'll obviously have pieces of those games, so try not to  freak out if you find yourself behind a bit during the early games. We have some great plays to start your day with, but the real meat and potatoes comes in the late window.



Just a few notes here about the lineups below...

The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.

Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.

**Be sure to check the Playbook and Dart Board for late changes

Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!

Bears’ WR DJ Moore, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is expected to play vs. the Browns

Saints’ WR Chris Olave, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is not expected to have his availability for Sunday’s game vs. the Giants determined until pre-game warmups

Texans’ WR Noah Brown, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a knee injury, is expected to play vs. the Titans

Texans’ WR Nico Collins, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a calf injury, is not expected to play vs. the Titans

Buccaneers’ WR Chris Godwin, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a knee injury, is expected to play vs. the Packers

Cardinals’ WR Marquise Brown, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a heel injury, is expected to play vs. the 49ers.

Cardinals’ WR Michael Wilson, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a neck injury, is expected to play vs. the 49ers

Rams’ WR Tutu Atwell, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a concussion, is unlikely to play vs. the Commanders.

Giants’ TE Darren Waller, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a hamstring injury, is expected to play vs. the Saints

Players who missed practice time and are now off the injury report and expected to play Sunday include Amari Cooper, Jerome Ford, Rashid Shaheed, Taysom Hill, Dalton Schultz, Dalton Kincaid, Tyler Higbee.


ATL/CAR -- Heavy rain expected throughout the entire game with winds around 15mph and gusts up to 30mph.

CHI/CLE -- Starts wet, might see some clearing by the 2nd half. A bit breezy as well, especially early, sustained winds 15-20mph, gusts 25, dipping to a lesser issue in the 2nd half.

NYJ/MIA -- Dry by gametime but sustained 15-20mph winds; gusts up to 30mph.

DAL/BUF -- Likely to rain throughout the entire game but the winds are only expected to be around 10-15mph which shouldn't have a major effect.


As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
