Welcome to the NFL Week 15 Monday Night Football Slate!

With two games being played today, we’re going to try something different here and help you with both single-game showdown slates and a two-game DFS slate. What you will find below are individual game breakdowns like we usually do for the showdown write-ups, but rather than write-up most of the players involved, we’re going to go Playbook-style for the player write-ups. That should help narrow the field for you even more, no matter which slate you are playing.

If you are playing showdown slates, I have suggestions for the captain/MVP seat below and if there are some long-shot dart-throws to look at, I will have them listed there as well.

The DFS sites used to do a Mon-Thurs two-game slate which we used to write up each week, so if you’re a longtime subscriber, this basically will bring that style back. If you’re new, this is exactly what you would expect from a two-game Playbook. 

Also, be sure to check with the Fantasy Alarm NFL Week 15 Reserve/COVID list as that will be continuously updated throughout the day.

Again, for short slates – whether it’s single-game or a two-game slate – your focus should be on GPP tournaments only. There is just too much overlap for cash games and given the COVID situation of at least two of these teams, there could be a lot of last-minute pivots as news comes rolling in. Having some skin in the game is great, but recognize the fact that you should not be over-investing in these contests. We all want to hit the million-dollar jackpots, but, as I’ve always said, these are more lottery tickets than they are a skill-based contest.  

OK. Lecture over. Let’s get to tonight’s action.
