MNF Fantasy Football
Start Jared Cook, TE, New Orleans Saints: The TE11 in our Week 15 fantasy football rankings, Jared Cook has been on a scoring tear this season, finding the end zone six times across his last seven games. His volume isn't always consistent, notching just two targets twice in the last five, but it still comes with big upside (six, eight and 10 targets in the other three).
Start Jacoby Brissett, QB, Indianapolis Colts: While the Saints defense is in the top-10 against the pass by Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metrics, they've also allowed top-10 fantasy production to opposing QBs. Jacoby Brissett has had an up-and-down season for fantasy output, but the five games in which he has played teams giving up top-10 fantasy numbers to QBs have seen him eclipse 20 fantasy points four times, averaging 21.3 per game.
Sit Latavius Murray, RB, New Orleans Saints: While Alvin Kamara hasn't been efficient as we're used to seeing since returning from his ankle injury, the Saints still appear reluctant to feed Latavius Murray. He's only averaged 6.6 carries and 1.6 targets per game over the last five, and that volume is not enough to make him a viable fantasy option for the week.
Sit Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts: One of the more game flow dependent RBs in fantasy football, Marlon Mack is tough to trust when the Colts are 9.5-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook. Mack has averaged 19.3 carries and 2.2 targets per game in wins versus 17.8 carries and 0.2 targets per game in losses this year. The Saints have held opposing RBs to the NFL's fourth-fewest fantasy points per game, and with a reduced workload Mack is likely to struggle in this matchup.
