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.

Sony Michel Fantasy

Start Sony Michel, RB, Los Angeles Rams: Sony Michel has been one of the more pleasant surprises this fantasy season. With Darrell Henderson out of the lineup, the veteran RB has played as the RB14 in PPR over the last two games, racking up 208 total yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on 47 touches. Henderson is still in COVID-19 protocol as of Thursday and may not see that many opportunities even if he does play due to his recent absence. Regardless, Michel is a must-start against a Seahawks defense giving up the second-most fantasy points to running backs.

Tyler Lockett Fantasy

Start Tyler Lockett (if he plays), WR, Seattle Seahawks: Tyler Lockett is starting to get hot again. After a drought earlier in the season, he's been WR11 since Week 8 and has finished with at least 96 yards in four of his last six games. While the Rams held him to just 10.7 PPR fantasy points in Week 5, they'll get a more confident version of Lockett this weekend. Los Angeles has also given up at least 300 passing yards in two of their last three outings. With that being said, Lockett was placed in COVID-19 protocol Thursday, however, he has a really good shot at being a top-10 option if he does suit up.

Tyler Higbee Fantasy

Sit Tyler Higbee, TE, Los Angeles Rams: Fantasy managers expected big things from Tyler Higbee after Gerald Everett signed with the Seahawks this offseason. Instead, Higbee has had few noteworthy performances and is currently the TE19 in PPR. Even though the Seahawks have surrendered the fifth-most points to tight ends, Higbee only saw two targets for two catches and 19 yards the last time the two teams met in Week 5. Yes, he did have a touchdown as well to salvage the game, but it's too risky to start him with that expectation — especially in the fantasy playoffs. There are better options out there.

Alex Collins Fantasy

Sit Alex Collins (if he plays), RB, Seattle Seahawks: Alex Collins appeared to be a league-winner when he became Seattle's No. 1 RB after Chris Carson was sidelined. Instead, Collins has been the RB69 since Week 7. If that wasn't bad enough, he played just 23% of offensive snaps last week and has been overtaken by Rashaad Penny as the new starter in the backfield. Collins was placed on the COVID-19 list as well on Thursday, however, even if he does play, he likely wouldn't see enough volume to even warrant a flex play against the Rams.
