Need some last minute start/sit advice? Fantasy points projections can help, and we’ve got them for Week 15 Thursday Night Football.

The NFL season is racing along, and this week we wrap up the Thursday Night Football schedule. The Baltimore Ravens host the New York Jets in what could be a fairly one-sided matchup. The Jets are playing well, but it’s come mostly against bad teams. The Ravens are rolling with nine straight wins and will be looking to further secure their spot atop the AFC.

We have reached the semifinal round of most fantasy football playoffs. There are a host of roster decisions to be made, and the injury report offers plenty of questions. Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews are both banged up, but expected to play. Le’Veon Bell is coming off an illness that cost him Week 14 (but not a quality bowling outing!) and should be good to go.

The Jets defense has been shaky while the Ravens unit is starting to surge. The DraftKings Sportsbook point total is tied for tenth highest, which suggests some modest scoring. The Jets are dealing with a host of injuries on defense which could make life a little bit easier for the Ravens offense.

Matchups are crucial, but it helps to see what the analytics are saying about potential performances. Looking at ESPN fantasy projections, there are plenty of start/sit decisions to consider for both teams. It’s no surprise Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram are the highest projections, but it’s fascinating to see just how top-heavy the Ravens offense is. After Jackson and Ingram, the Ravens D/ST and Justin Tucker are expected to have some monster games.

Here’s a look at what ESPN’s fantasy projections suggest for Week 15 Thursday Night Football.
