This is a weird Sunday morning. We're facing must-win games that have, in many situations, already been largely decided. I'm in one league where my opponent already had three guys go, while I've had four -- luckily for me, those four included Kirk Cousins, Justin Jefferson, and Christian McCaffrey, so I don't have much to worry about. 

Of course, that's only one league -- I've got another one where I've only had Josh Allen go so far. His big game helped me make up a projected deficit, but it's still projected to be a deficit, and I've got some tough choices to make -- do I really roll the dice on Rex Burkhead? What about Tee Higgins vs. D.J. Moore or Marquise Brown? 

I'm going to ask my Fantasy Football Today teammates for some help on those decisions, and you can, too. The whole team is here to help you finalize your lineups for Week 15, with Jamey Eisenberg, Heath Cummings, and Dave Richard  live on CBS Sports HQ right now until kickoff to cover the Week 15 slate from every ankle. 

And if you want more direct answers to your questions, we have other opportunities to help: Go to Twitter and use the hashtag "#AskFFT", where our whole team will be answering questions all morning; and go to the FFT YouTube channel to chat with Adam Aizer, Frank Stampfl, and I starting at 11:30. We'll be there right up until kickoff answering as many questions as we can, so make sure you're in the chat early to get your questions in. 

Week 15 Injury Report


  • Out/not expected to play: Kyler Murray (knee), Russell Wilson (concussion), Mike White (ribs), Kenny Pickett (concussion), Marcus Mariota (knee), John Wolford (neck)

None of these absences comes as a surprise Sunday. White's absence might actually have the biggest impact because the difference in the Jets offense with Zach Wilson at QB has been stark. Garrett Wilson is averaging just 8.4 PPR points per game in Zach Wilson's seven starts; he's at 19.3 without him. 

Lawrence played through the injury last week against the Titans and should do the same this week. Lawrence is playing extremely well right now, with 10 touchdowns to zero interceptions over his past five games, however this Cowboys defense is an extremely tough one. Lawrence is more like a low-end QB1 for me. 

Running backs

  • Out: Dameon Pierce (ankle; IR), Damien Harris (thigh), Mark Ingram (knee; IR), Mike Boone (ankle; IR), Dontrell Hilliard (neck)

There aren't nearly as many big injury questions at running back this week, with some big names already ruled out. Pierce is the most notable, obviously, with Rex Burkhead and Dare Ogunbowale expected to replace him against the Chiefs; you'd have to be pretty desperate to start either of them, but Burkhead is probably the better option if you need one. 

  • Expected to play: Josh Jacobs (hand/quad), Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle)

Stevenson is the bigger question mark at this point, but Sunday morning reports indicate he has a good chance to play after being limited in practice Friday. He'll have to get through pre-game warmups without incident, however, so hopefully he's good to go. Stevenson is a top-12 RB if he plays, as is Jacobs. 

If Stevenson is out, we're probably looking at a Kevin Harris-Pierre Strong split, with Strong probably the preferred option. He looked better last week, though Harris was more involved, so he might be the choice. I'd expect something like an even split, but it's a bit of an unknown, truthfully. I would start either ahead of either Texans back. 

Wide receivers

  • Out: Treylon Burks (concussion), Courtland Sutton (hamstring), DeVante Parker (concussion), Rondale Moore (groin; IR), Chase Claypool (knee), Brandin Cooks (calf), Nico Collins (foot), Corey Davis (concussion), Kendall Hinton (hamstring), 

For the most part, there aren't too many injuries to worry about for wide receiver either. Sutton's absence makes Jerry Jeudy a better play, however with backup Brett Rypien in, Jeudy is more of a WR2/3 with big upside but plenty of risk, too. The absences of Collins and Cooks makes Chris Moore a viable streamer as well, though I'm obviously not expecting a repeat of his 10-catch performance from last week. He's in the WR3 discussion. 

  • Questionable: Julio Jones (knee), Laviska Shenault (shoulder) 

Neither of these guys really matters very much for Fantasy. 

  • Expected to play: Tee Higgins (hamstring), Tyler Boyd (finger), Marquise Brown (illness), Jakobi Meyers (concussion), Hunter Renfrow (oblique), D.J. Moore (ankle)

Higgins and Boyd are expected to play at this point, though trusting Higgins after he was cleared last week only to play a single snap is hard to do. I started Brandon Aiyuk ahead of him in one league earlier in the week, but I'll probably go with Higgins ahead of Antonio Gibson in my flex spot, for what it's worth. But I'm definitely nervous about it.

Meyers is an interesting one for the matchup against the Raiders. It's a good matchup, but Meyers hasn't been as involved of late, with no more than six targets in any of his past four games. Meyers can be a very solid option for PPR formats, but this offense isn't giving him many opportunities of late. I'd view him as more of a WR3, as are Brown and Moore. 

Tight ends

  • Out: Dallas Goedert (shoulder; IR), Hayden Hurst (calf), Jake Ferguson (concussion) 
  • Expected to play: Darren Waller (hamstring), Donald Parham (hamstring)
  • Questionable: Daniel Bellinger (ribs), Juwan Johnson (ankle)

The disappointing one here is Goedert, who was aiming to come off IR but wasn't activated Saturday. He'll aim to return in Week 16, but you'll need a replacement if you were planning on using Goedert. Consider someone like Hunter Henry (40%) or Chigoziem Okonkwo (54%) if you need to add someone. 

I would start Waller as a low-end TE1. He wasn't playing at a super high level before going on IR, but it's fair to wonder if he was actually healthy. He is, presumably, healthy now and should be good for six-plus targets. That's enough for me to rank him ahead of the likes of Cole Kmet or Gerald Everett.
