Week 15 Fantasy Picks: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em for Jaguars vs Ravens
The Jacksonville Jaguars (1-12) will look to snap a 12-game losing streak when they go on the road to take on the Baltimore Ravens (8-5) in Week 15 NFL action. The Ravens will try to win their third straight game and are 12.5-point favorites in this one, 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 Jaguars-Ravens showdown.
James Robinson Fantasy
Start James Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: It is hard to find someone to feel confident about starting in this Jaguars offense, but the one constant is James Robinson. He has rushed for over 65 yards in each of his last seven games and has scored 9 total touchdowns this season. His emergence has helped many teams reach the fantasy football playoffs and there is no reason to shy away from starting him now. Plus, the Ravens are giving up a solid 113.6 rushing yards per game this season. Trust one of the players that has gotten your team this far already and start Robinson this week with ease.
Marquise Brown Fantasy
Start Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens: Although Marquise Brown landed on the COVID list this week, there's still time for him to clear protocol and be a great starting option for your team. Brown has been on a hot streak, scoring a touchdown in three straight games and seeing 22 targets over that span. He has finally started to become quarterback Lamar Jackson's go-to option in the passing game. Averaging 14.1 yards per reception this season, he draws a favorable matchup in Week 15, as the Jaguars have given up the sixth-most yards to opposing wide receivers this season (2,394). The Ravens will definitely lean on their stellar running game again this week, but Brown should see enough targets to be worth starting in your FLEX spot, if he's cleared to play.
Gardner Minshew Fantasy
Sit Gardner Minshew, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars: Gardner Minshew returns to the starting quarterback role for the Jaguars this week, but that doesn't mean he is a viable streaming option. He draws a difficult matchup in Week 15 as the Ravens' defense has allowed just 9.4 yards per completion this season. That number ranks as the second-lowest mark in the NFL. Plus, Minshew lost his starting job for a reason: He has thrown 5 interceptions in his 7 starts this season and is averaging under 2 touchdown passes per game. If you need to stream a quarterback this week, it would be smart to consider other options rather than just starting Minshew.
Gus Edwards Fantasy
Sit Gus Edwards, RB, Baltimore Ravens: This is tough because almost everyone on the Ravens' offense is playing well right now. However, Gus Edwards is a player that seems to be over-performing. Although he has rushed for 150 yards and 2 touchdowns over the past two weeks, that's come on just 14 total carries. Edwards is clearly the backup running back to starter JK Dobbins, and it is much more likely that he sees his work decrease moving forward rather than Dobbins. He is a great depth piece and handcuff, but it's too much of a risk to start him in the fantasy football playoffs right now.
