This new article will provide value picks at every position for the weekly FanDuel and DraftStreet leagues providing weekly fantasy glory (and big bucks!) to its winners. If you take advantage of these picks, they'll provide you the ability to spend more elsewhere, getting the big names you didn't think you could afford.
Let's kick things off with the week 15 picks!
Tony Romo, vs. GB. $8,600. The Packers haven't been able to generate a consistent pass rush, nor has the offense been able to stay on the field. They have the same number of interceptions this season as the Falcons. The Cowboys WR depth outnumbers the Packers DB depth, giving Dallas a clear advantage, especially late in the game. Both teams need this win, so expect the play calling to make a statement, and for Romo to pick the secondary apart.
Joe Flacco, @ DET. $7,600. Detroit's secondary has been weak while their run D has been strong. Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones have a lot of deep play potential here. The Lions have given up 14 plays over 40 yards this year, while the Ravens have the second most plays of 40 yards or more. With Dennis Pitta back, Flacco will have a reliable underneath option every play as well.
Shane Vereen, @ MIA. $7,600. Yes, Vereen will be like a receiver more than a running back, but take advantage of the points per reception. He led the team in targets, catches and yards last week, and I expect him to do so again this week. He is Tom Brady's safety outlet, and the only reliable option in their backfield.
Alfred Morris, @ ATL. $6,400. Robert Griffin III dominated headlines, which kept Morris under wraps this week. Going against one of the worst defenses in the league, Morris may benefit from Kirk Cousins' arrival because the team will know what kind of offense to run. Cousins isn't going to scramble or take off on designed runs, which leaves more field available to Morris, including those valuable red zone carries.
Chris Ogbonnaya, vs. CHI. $4,500. In a true boom-or-bust fashion, Ogbonnaya is a pure match-up play this week. He faces a very weak Bears run defense, which allowed DeMarco Murray to average 8.1 yards per carry last week. Ogbonnaya will benefit from the added attention required by Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, which will pull defenders out of the box.
DeSean Jackson, @ MIN. $6,900. So he's not incredibly inexpensive, but for a speedy #1 receiver facing a Vikings secondary giving up the third most passing yards per game in the league...I'll take him. The game is inside on turf, so there will be no weather hazards that will slow Jackson down this week.
Roddy White, vs. WAS. $6,200. White got 10 targets last week, making 18 over the past two weeks to lead the Falcons. Playing at home in the Georgia dome against a weak Redskins secondary, White should finally take form of the receiver we all thought he'd be at the beginning of the season.
Cordarrelle Patterson, vs. PHI. $5,600. On the other side of the ball, the Eagles' pass defense has been gashed all year. Patterson had his best game last week, even before his 79 yard TD catch. With Matt Cassel under center, Patterson has arguably been the team's best overall weapon, gathering yards on the ground, through the air and in the return game.
Jerricho Cotchery, vs. CIN. $5,200. Cotchery has the best red zone TD efficiency (9 TDs on 17 targets) in the league. He is second in red zone TDs only to Wes Welker (10). The Bengals' secondary continues to get ravaged by injuries. With Ben Roethlisberger throwing 11 TDs (three to Cotchery) and 0 INTs over the last four games, I like Cotchery's chances to grab another on Sunday.
Delanie Walker, vs. ARI. $4,800. The Cardinals are a top five defense against opponents running backs and wide receivers. Against tight ends, however, they are the worst in the league, and it's not even close. Walker's targets have risen since Ryan Fitzpatrick took over, so expect his return to mean a lot this week.
Graham Gano, vs. NYJ. $5,100. The Jets' D has only given up 7 rushing touchdowns, while the Panthers have rushed for 12. Look for the Jets' front seven to stay strong in the red zone, forcing Gano to kick FGs from a manageable distance when Cam Newton can't convert.
Titans, vs. ARI. $5,200. Carson Palmer has been on a tear lately, throwing for over 300 yards and multiple TDs in three of the last four games. However, his receiving crew will be limited this week, as Michael Floyd nurses an ankle injury and Rob Housler is out. The Titans already give up the fewest fantasy points to opposing WRs, so watch for Palmer to resort back to his early-season troubles and interceptions when he can't find an open receiver.
