3 Players To Avoid In Week 15 Fantasy Football

Dec 15- 6 min read

We’ve finally arrived at the Fantasy Football playoffs! This is what you’ve been building your team towards all season, it’s now do or die time. If you were lucky enough to secure a bye, that’s great you can have a stress free week. If not, hopefully you’ve at least made the playoffs and need to know who to start and who to sit this week. Here’s 3 players to avoid this week in fantasy football.

players to avoid

D.J. Moore ($6,200) – It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for the Panthers and Moore and things aren’t looking great heading down the stretch. Matt Rhule said the team plans on using a 2 QB system this week against the Bills, with both Cam Newton and P.J. Walker. This isn’t a great sign for any of the Panthers WRs, as it could be tough for them to establish a rhythm or stable connection with either guy. It also doesn’t help that the Bills have allowed the fewest amount of fantasy points to WRs this season and are coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Bucs, altogether leading to a potential embarrassment by this Panthers offense. Since his first 4 games where he went on a tear, Moore has only averaged 4.9 receptions and 60 yards per game. Terrible numbers for someone who’s supposed to be a high floor consistency play.

Ryan Tannehill ($6,500) – Tannehill has been having a completely different season this year after a career year in 2020. His touchdown to interception ratio through 14 weeks last season was 28:5, this year however its dropped to a putrid 14:13. A big reason for this is Derrick Henry going down with injury, as well as the multitude of injuries their receiving corps has had. Before Henry went down Tannehill was averaging 20 fantasy points per game a mediocre 1.25:0.9 TD to INT ratio, but since then he’s gone down to 14.8 fantasy points per game and a horrid 0.8:1.4 TD to INT ratio. So while we haven’t seen the same QB as we did last year, without Henry and AJ Brown in the lineup, Tannehill is just completely unstartable.

Michael Pittman ($6,300) – After having a great stretch of games in the middle of the season, Pittman has cooled off recently. Over his past 4 games he’s only averaging 4.25 receptions and hasn’t gotten in the end zone a single time. To make matters worse, the Colts take on the Patriots this week, which means Pittman will be matched up against J.C. Jackson who’s been one of the best cover corners in the league this year. Through 13 games he’s only allowed 38 total receptions, 501 yards and 1 touchdown. On average he only allows 7.2 fantasy points against per game this season, which means you should temper expectations for Pittman. He’s still going to get some targets, just don’t expect a big game out of him.
