Week 15 DFS Sleeper Picks- Philly Sports Wave
Hey everyone! We wanted to take some time to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. This year has been a crazy one but it has also been a big year for us as we have increased our readership (and viewership on the podcast) tremendously. We appreciate you taking some time out of your day to read our articles and watch our videos. It has brought some joy to us during such a insane year here in Philly.
Hopefully next year everything goes back to some sense of normalcy and we can meet up with some of you for a pint or two. Until then stay safe and enjoy the holidays with family and friends (if your state doesn't try to pull a Grinch on family gatherings!)
We are Catholic so Merry Christmas to all! If you aren't then enjoy whatever holiday or non-holiday you may celebrate. It is ok to not all be the same. I hope that we all remember that leading into 2021.
JB’S WEEK 15 PICKS
QB- JALEN HURTS
This could be the first time I have picked an Eagle all year but this just makes too much sense not too. When you have a QB who ran 18 times in his first start facing a D that has allowed over 45 yards on the ground to opposing QB’s in 5 of the last 6 and over 20 pts you start the rookie with a nice price tag.
BONUS- I also like Tom Terrific, Tannehill and Trubisky
RB- J.K. DOBBINS
Leading the team in carries and looking the part doing it now facing a Jags D that is horrendous against the run like historically bad over the past few weeks and Dobbins is taking over the backfield. Gus Edwards will still be involved and is also a sneak low cost play against the Jags but its Dobbins as the high upside play of the week for me.
BONUS- I really like Swift this week as well think they will have to lean on the run a lot and also Jeff Wilson
WR- TERRY MCLAURIN
I know he has probably cost some you money or losses in season long but this should be his get right game and you will want to have his ownership against a Seattle team that allows the most everything to WR’s on the year. I am buying shares of him in a lot of lineups this week.
BONUS- Monday I also like Dionte Johnson to find his cures against the Bengals and have a feeling this will be Antonio Browns week as well.
TE- ROBERT TONYAN
He is #2 behind Adams and has all of Arod’s trust in the redzone. Carolina has allowed scores to TE in multiple games this year and I think that continues here. However GET KELCE OR WALLER if you can afford them its worth the price almost every week.
BONUS- If you didn’t listen to me and want another low cost option fine Irv Smith should be busy as well as Higbee and Kmet
I don’t get cute I like whoever is playing against the Jets and it just so happens to be one of the hotter D’s in the league .. Bonus points for me yay!! Good Luck this week
CHOL's WEEK 15 PICKS
QB- Tom Brady
Brady really hasnt had "that game" yet this year. Facing an Atlanta team that gives up high yardage through the air and with Ronald Jones out this week this may be the perfect scenario for Brady. If not now then when. A Tampa stack may be in the works for this week.
BONUS- I also like Kyler Murray going up against a beat up Eagles Secondary.
RB- Cam Akers
Hopefully people listened to us earlier in the year and held on to the rookie in season long leagues. He is becoming a top option in DFS and his price tag will continue to rise. Facing the Jets this week is the gift that keeps on giving. Merry Christmas DFS Community!
BONUS- I really like Swift as much as JB does. When he is healthy he is a gun and the Philly kid may help bring down some large tourney this week.
WR- D Hop
I know this isnt really a sleeper but Hopkins will likely thrive against the Eagles secondary in the way that Davante and Metcalf have in recent weeks. He is one of the top receivers in the game and has had a few under performing weeks recently. This week DHop reminds everyone why he is considered one of the best. If Slay doesn't play for Philly I like this play even more.
BONUS- I am on Juju on Monday night but your really can pick and choose Pitt receivers at this point.
TE- T J Hockenson
I am going back to the well with TJ Hockenson who has been my favorite play this year. The dude is consistent. I also like Tonyan as another option and will likely use only these two plays this week.
They play the Jets and they are the best defense. Don't complicate things. Play them!
