20. Dak Prescott, QB - Dallas Cowboys @ Indianapolis Colts

There was a time this season when Prescott wouldn't even sniff this list, but the addition of Amari Cooper and involvement of Ezekiel Elliott in the passing game have upped his efficiency big time. Prescott has now posted at least 26 FanDuel fantasy points in two of the last three games.


19. Julio Jones, WR - Atlanta Falcons vs. Arizona Cardinals

It'll be a very tough matchup against All-World cornerback Patrick Peterson, but Julio is typically in that 18-20 range of FanDuel fantasy points. Also in Julio's favor is the fact that this game will be played in Atlanta, a place where quarterback Matt Ryan has been much better this season.


18. Travis Kelce, TE - Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers

While Kelce has struggled historically against the Chargers, he could be in for a huge workload if Tyreek Hill is inactive or at least limited. Expect Kelce to keep trending toward to the all-time receiving record for yards by a tight end in a single season on Thursday night.

17. Alvin Kamara, RB - New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers

Kamara has posted double-digit FanDuel fantasy points in all but one game this season, but I think I can speak for everyone in saying we've been expecting more production out of him these past few weeks. The issue: Kamara has only gotten in the end zone once in the last four games. Look for a big output on Monday night against the Panthers.


16. Brandin Cooks/Robert Woods, WR - Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles

As always, the top Rams' receivers come as a package deal and this matchup against Philly is a favorable one, given all the injuries to the Eagles' secondary. Expect the Rams to come back with a strong offensive performance after dropping a dud last week in Chicago. 


15. T.Y. Hilton, WR - Indianapolis Colts vs. Dallas Cowboys

Hilton has been rocking and rolling with an average of 139 receiving yards per game over the last four weeks. It does hurt Hilton a bit that the Cowboys have such a great time of possession, but he is certainly capable of hitting on a deep ball for a touchdown. 


14. Adam Thielen, WR - Minnesota Vikings vs. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are allowing the fourth-most FanDuel fantasy points per game (35.3) to the wide receiver position over the last four weeks. Look for Thielen to get back on track, as he has only reached the 100-yard mark once over the past five games. He does, however, have three touchdowns over that span. He's a fantasy beast.

13. Michael Thomas, WR - New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers

Thomas has been seeing a lot more attention from opposing defenses and that's why we've seen his production dip a bit over these last few weeks. Thomas finally has that big game we are patiently waiting for.


12. Zach Ertz, TE - Philadelphia Eagles @ Los Angeles Rams

No other team has utilized their tight ends more than the Eagles and only one other team has had more tight-end targets against them than the Rams. Folks, it's a match made in heaven. Ertz should be the top tight end in Week 15.


11. Keenan Allen, WR - Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs

Allen torched the Chiefs for eight catches on 11 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 matchup. As you'll see below, Philip Rivers should have a great night and Allen will likely be the main beneficiary of it. Melvin Gordon is trending toward being out again,  despite a cryptic tweet from him earlier today, so that should mean that more looks are coming Allen's way.


10. Jared Goff, QB - Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have not fared well defensively against the more high-powered offenses in the NFL this season, mainly because their secondary has been decimated by injuries. It's even better news for Goff since he's playing at the LA Coliseum, where he's thrown for an 18 TD-2 INT ratio.


9. Philip Rivers, QB - Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs

You can make the argument that this is the biggest regular season game of Rivers' career, and that should certainly give him enough motivation to lead the Chargers to an upset victory on Thursday night. Despite having a tough history in KC, Rivers will be taking on a Chiefs' defense that is allowing the fourth-most FanDuel fantasy points per game (21.7) to opposing quarterbacks this season.  If Gordon is inactive or limited, Rivers will be throwing the ball a ton. 


8. Amari Cooper, WR - Dallas Cowboys at Indianapolis Colts

Cooper has made the biggest leap of anyone on this list, by far. That'll happen, though, when you go crazy on the competition. In two of the last three games, Cooper has posted at least (AT LEAST!) 180 receiving yards. Dak's deep ball seems to be an excellent fit with Cooper's speed downfield, so look for that combo to continue clicking on Sunday.

7. Antonio Brown, WR - Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots

AB somehow got held in check last week at Oakland, so look for Ben Roethlisberger to get his No. 1 wideout re-acclimated to the offense in a must-win game against the Pats. Let's just consider last week a fluke, considering he has posted a respectable amount of fantasy points every other week this season.


6. Saquon Barkley, RB - New York Giants vs. Tennessee Titans

Barkley has had a truly remarkable rookie season, posting double-digit FanDuel fantasy points in every game and at least 27 of them in three of the last four games. While the matchup against the Titans is a tough one, Barkley is still getting too many touches not to crack the Top 10. 

5. Ezekiel Elliott, RB - Dallas Cowboys @ Indianapolis Colts

Zeke is single-handedly carrying fantasy owners these last few weeks, thanks to the Dallas coaching staff realizing that they have to get him involved more in the passing game. He has now posted at least 22 FanDuel fantasy points in each of the last five games and should be right back in that range against the Colts.


4. Drew Brees, QB - New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers 

Surprisingly, the Panthers are allowing the seventh-most FanDuel fantasy points per game (20.6) to opposing quarterbacks. Brees has also thrown multiple touchdown passes against Carolina in five of their last six meetings.


3. Patrick Mahomes, QB - Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Mahomes has proven time-and-time again that he can get it done in any matchup, even with a hobbled Tyreek Hill. It's crazy to think, but Mahomes has fallen shy of 20 FanDuel fantasy points only once this season (Oct. 7 vs. Jacksonville) and he didn't even throw a touchdown that game.


2. Christian McCaffrey, RB - Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints

McCaffrey has been absolutely crushing it down the stretch, but he also hasn't faced this stout Saints defense yet this season. He did, however, have two games of 101 receiving yards against them last season. It should still be a productive day, but the Saints D could very well keep him to only 20 fantasy points. That's right, only. 


1. Todd Gurley, RB - Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Gurley could use a trip back home to LA after last week's abysmal showing in frigid Chicago. Philly has allowed massive games to other star running backs like Elliott and Barkley this season. There's no reason Gurley can't do the same, especially with a better play-caller and a ton motivation to get back on the good foot.
