Fantasy Football Rankings Week 15: Model that beat experts says start Mike Davis, bench Lamar Miller
Advanced computer model that has out-performed experts all season tells you who to sit and start for Week 15.
If you're still alive and setting your Week 15 Fantasy Football lineups or searching the waiver wire for the perfect addition to your team for the playoffs, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. And congratulations on making it this far!
When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine's model is beating human experts this season when there are big differences in ranking. And the model is the closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it has best pinpointed where every player will finish each week.
With the Fantasy Football playoffs in full swing, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.
A player the model loves this week: 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin. He's coming off a solid Week 14 that saw him catch six passes for 106 yards. He's only owned in 58 percent of CBS Sports leagues, but SportsLine's model says he'll finish as a Top-25 WR in Week 15. He's firmly on the WR2 radar.
Goodwin had a season-high 12 targets last week and topped 100 yards for the second time this season. He's had at least 65 yards in five straight games and scored once over that span.
On Sunday, Davis has a date with the L.A. Rams, who allow 124.1 yards per game on the ground, the sixth-worst mark in the NFL. They gave up 5.2 yards per carry to Jay Ajayi last week and 6.1 to Kerwynn Williams the week before. Roster Davis with confidence in Week 15 - he's a shoo-in RB2.
One player to avoid this week: Texans RB Lamar Miller on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Miller is a top-10 Fantasy running back, but he should be firmly on your bench this weekend. He's projected to have just 9.75 Fantasy points, a number that will put him outside the top 15 running backs.
Jacksonville's defense gives up the fewest points in the league and has not allowed an opposing running back to rush for a touchdown in eight of the past nine games. Avoid Miller at all costs.
The model is also calling for a shocker at QB to crack the Fantasy Football rankings top 10. No one is talking about him and he may be sitting on your waiver wire right now.
So who should you sit and start this week? Visit SportsLine now to get Week 15 Fantasy Football rankings for every position, plus see which QB is going to come out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that's been crushing experts, and find out.
