Fantasy Football Week 15 Advice: Last Minute Tips on Rivers, Mendenhall, Helu, and more

It’s playoff time. Enough said.

Here are some last minute tips for this week in fantasy football on guys like Philip Rivers, Rashard Mendenhall, Roy Helu, and others.

And once you’re done reading them, head on over to our Sunday live chat and get any last minute questions answered.

Fantasy Football Week 15: Big Names Who Could Disappoint

Philip Rivers

The Chargers are still technically alive for the playoffs, but their chances are very slim. It is another season of disappointment in San Diego, even though they are currently on a two-game winning streak.

Philip Rivers and his Chargers are going up against the Ravens, who are looking to hold their lead over the Steelers in the AFC North. The Ravens have the fourth ranked pass defense in the NFL, and have held their last three opponents to ten points or less. Rivers will have a tough time getting anything going, and should have a down week in a fantasy sense.

Rashard Mendenhall

Mendenhall has only gone over 100 yards once this season, and he will not do so for a second time on Monday night against the 49ers.

The 49ers have the league’s top ranked rush defense, at an average of 70.5 yards per game, and should hold strong against Mendenhall on Monday Night Football. He has scored his touchdowns in spurts this year, but the Steelers will have to find points through the air on Monday night.

Sam Hurd

For obvious reasons.

Torrey Smith

Smith has burst onto the scene this season as a rookie with the Ravens. He has six touchdowns on the year, but three came in Week 3 against St. Louis.

The Chargers have the seventh ranked pass defense, so the Ravens will have to try and win through the run game. Ray Rice should have a solid game, but Torrey Smith will not see much of the action.

Fantasy Football Week 15: Under-the-Radar Players to Consider

Roy Helu

Helu is a bright spot on the Redskins and has taken over the running back position in Washington. He has rushed for over 100 yards in three straight games, and he could easily reach that number today against the Giants.

New York has the 22nd ranked rush defense in the league, and Helu, being a threat both in the run and pass game, should be able to rack up a decent amount of points.

Eric Decker

Decker has seen a lack of receptions due to an increase in production by Demaryius Thomas, but he is still the Broncos’ leading receiver.

The Patriots have the worst pass defense in the entire league, so Tebow should be able to spread the ball around. John Fox will look to take advantage of the Pats’ secondary, and call more pass plays for Superman Tebow. Decker should be able to find the endzone at least once today.

Evan Moore

Moore has not been utilized as much as he should be by the Browns, but with Benjamin Watson on IR, Moore is now the main option at TE.

The Cardinals have the 23rd ranked pass defense, and with Seneca Wallace making his first start of the season, Moore should be the main option when, not if, the Browns are in the red zone.
