Fantasy Football Playoffs Advice

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

Ezekiel Elliott Fantasy

Start Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott has had his fair share of ups and downs this season, mainly due to him being banged up as of late. Fortunately, he has a good shot at having a big fantasy day against a Giants team that he torched for 25.2 points (RB8 in PPR) back in Week 5. The Giants have been brutal against the run lately, giving up 428 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground in their last three games. If Tony Pollard misses another game and the game script is in Dallas' favor, Sunday could be another big fantasy showing for Elliott.

Evan Engram Fantasy

Start Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants: Like most of New York's pass-catchers, Evan Engram has struggled with consistency this year. He's currently the TE24 in PPR formats. Still, he's played anywhere from 74% to 90% of offensive snaps in his last six games and has averaged 4.5 targets over that span, so the potential for something is there. Dallas may have a good defense, but they're also giving up 13th-most points to tight ends. Considering how Engram finished as TE11 the last time these teams squared off, he could finish as a top-10 option this week.

Dalton Schultz Fantasy

Sit Dalton Schultz, TE, Dallas Cowboys: With the Cowboys' receiving corps getting healthier, Dalton Schultz hasn't been as reliable as of late. He's seen just over 10% of the target share in Dallas' last two games and finished last week with a measly 1.4 points in PPR. He's finished with 20 or fewer yards on two or fewer catches four times this season and has one touchdown since Week 5. He'll still be on the field a lot, but he's much too volatile of a fantasy option to start with confidence.

Kenny Golladay Fantasy

Sit Kenny Golladay, WR, New York Giants: Entering Week 15 as WR82 in PPR, it's easy to see how disappointing Kenny Golladay's first season as a Giant has been. He's failed to record more than 50 receiving yards in his last six games and hasn't found the end zone at all this season. Golladay has just two receptions on eight targets (15 yards) last week and it's looking like none of New York's wide receivers are worth starting with how bad the offense has been. The former NIU Husky may bounce back next season, but there's no reason to start him for the rest of 2021.
