The Buffalo Bills (10-3) will look to win their fourth consecutive game as they go on the road to take on the Denver Broncos (5-8) in Week 15 NFL action. The Bills could clinch the AFC East with a win and head into this game as 7-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 15 Bills-Broncos showdown.

Cole Beasley Fantasy

Start Cole Beasley, WR, Buffalo Bills: Cole Beasley has become one of quarterback Josh Allen's go-to options in the passing game and that shouldn't change this week. Beasley has seen double-digit targets in three of his last four games and now has four 100-yard games this season. In fact, he has had over 100 yards and a touchdown in two of his last four games. Beasley should be peppered with targets over the middle again this week against a Broncos' defense that has been covering outside receivers well all season. Beasley should be started across all fantasy football formats this week. He even receives a boost in PPR leagues.

Melvin Gordon Fantasy

Start Melvin Gordon, RB, Denver Broncos: While he is currently splitting work with fellow running back Philip Lindsay, Melvin gordon is making the most of his opportunity. He is averaging 5.7 yards per carry over the past four weeks and has also received double-digit carries in all of those games. He draws a decent matchup in Week 15 as the Bills are giving up 119.9 rushing yards per game this season (T-No. 19 in the NFL). It is important to keep an eye on Gordon's status leading up to Saturday as he is currently dealing with a shoulder injury. If he is able to suit up, place him in your FLEX spot and don't think twice about it.

Gabriel Davis Fantasy

Sit Gabriel Davis, WR, Buffalo Bills: Don't get me wrong. Gabriel Davis is riding an impressive hot streak as he has caught a touchdown in three straight games now. However, he remains a touchdown-dependent player that is tough to trust in the fantasy football playoffs. Davis averages just 2.2 receptions per game and has surpassed 60 receiving yards just four times this season. Plus, the Broncos' secondary is no joke. They have only given up 12 touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season. That number is tied for the ninth-lowest mark in the NFL. Davis is a great player to add to your team for depth purposes, but don't sit one of your studs to start him instead this week.

All Denver Broncos' Wide Receivers Fantasy

Sit All Denver Broncos' Wide Receivers: The Broncos' wide receiving core made up of Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Tim Patrick has become quite unpredictable at this point. Hamler shined last week with 86 yards and 2 touchdowns, but it was Patrick who shined the week before that with 44 yards and 2 touchdowns. In the fantasy football playoffs, you need to start players you can rely on week in and week out to produce. These players have shown they can put up big numbers, but also that they have a very low floor. The type of risk that comes with starting any one of these receivers is just not worth it.
