The Green Bay Packers will look to keep a hold of the NFC's No. 1 seed when they travel to take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15 NFL action. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Packers slated as 6.5-point road favorites in a game that is full of playmakers on both sides of the football.

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.

Aaron Rodgers Fantasy

Start Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers: Fantasy managers have been starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers every single week and that shouldn't change on Sunday. The reigning NFL MVP is coming off his third 4-touchdown performance of the season and draws a great matchup against a subpar Ravens' defense. Baltimore has posted the seventh-worst pass defense DVOA rating in the NFL and is allowing a whopping 266.1 passing yards per game (No. 31 in NFL). Rodgers currently ranks as the No. 7 QB in fantasy scoring and has thrown 27 touchdowns compared to just 4 interceptions. Start him with confidence on Sunday.

Mark Andrews Fantasy

Start Mark Andrews, TE, Baltimore Ravens: The uncertainty surrounding starting quarterback Lamar Jackson makes it hard to trust anyone on the Ravens' offense this week. However, tight end Mark Andrews has proven he can produce no matter who is throwing him the football. The 26-year-old hauled in all 11 of his targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 playing with Tyler Huntley at QB. While the Packers have been stout against opposing TEs, the volume Andrews sees makes him worth another start. He has been targeted at least eight times in each of his last six games and leads all Baltimore pass-catchers with 15 red zone looks this year.

AJ Dillon Fantasy

Sit AJ Dillon, RB, Green Bay Packers: Fantasy managers may believe AJ Dillon is the best running back on this team right now, but starter Aaron Jones is now healthy again. That limits Dillon's upside in Week 15. Dillon is being used as a pure rusher on this offense and failed to see a single target in Week 14. He could be in trouble on Sunday going up against a Ravens defense that is allowing the sixth-fewest PPR fantasy points to opposing RBs. It's important to note that Dillon has scored just 4 touchdowns this season despite seeing 33 red zone touches. That level of inefficiency makes him a bench candidate in Week 15.

Devonta Freeman Fantasy

Sit Devonta Freeman, RB, Baltimore Ravens: This one simply comes down to the expected game script. The Packers are likely to sell out on the run and make Huntley beat them with his arm if he is called upon to start. That does not bode well for Ravens running back Devonta Freeman. He has posted over 55 rushing yards in only one of his last five games and is relying on touchdowns for the bulk of his fantasy production. Keep in mind that Green Bay is allowing the ninth-fewest rushing yards per game this season (105.2) and has given up just 8 rushing touchdowns to opposing RBs. Freeman is a risky FLEX play at best.
