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.

Jamison Crowder Fantasy

Start Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets: With wideouts Corey Davis and Elijah Moore on the injured reserve, Jamison Crowder disappointed fantasy managers in Week 14 with just 4.9 points in PPR. However, that was against a tough New Orleans defense and he has a much more favorable matchup in Week 15. The Dolphins are surrendering the sixth-most fantasy points (31.6) to wide receivers this season. Meanwhile, Crowder finished as WR19 (16.4 points) the last time these two teams met. He should have a bounce-back performance this week.

Mike Gesicki Fantasy

Start Mike Gesicki, TE, Miami Dolphins: Mike Gesicki has been underwhelming for managers lately, playing as the TE20 in PPR since Week 8. Fortunately, he has a juicy matchup against a Jets defense surrendering the seventh-most points to the position this year. While Gesicki played just 67% of offensive snaps in his last outing, saw a whopping 11 targets for seven catches and 46 yards. As long as that type of target share follows him into Week 15, he's worth another start depending on your options.

Zach Wilson Fantasy

Sit Zach Wilson, QB, New York Jets: While Zach Wilson has the potential to be a superstar quarterback one day, it's not happening anytime this season. The 22-year-old has thrown just two touchdown passes in his last five outings and has averaged just 11.11 fantasy points during that stretch. Miami is giving up the 13th-fewest points to QBs this year and has held opponents to under 200 passing yards in three of their last five games. Considering how the Jets offense has looked lately, Wilson isn't worth a look even as a streaming option.

DeVante Parker Fantasy

Sit DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins: DeVante Parker's 2021 campaign has been marred by injuries, holding him to just six games played. After scoring 11.2 PPR points in his Week 13 return, managers might consider starting him in Week 15. While the Jets aren't a very good team this year, their defense has held wideouts to just 26.4 fantasy PPG (25th). The odds predict a positive game script for the Dolphins, so they could end up abandoning the pass if they get a sizable lead. Keeping that in mind, Parker isn't exactly an ideal choice unless you have no other option.
