There are a few D/STs widely available that either have good matchups heading into Week 15, or had successful Week 14 performances, or could benefit from an injury. With that in mind, here are five D/STs with under 60% rostership in traditional fantasy football leagues that managers can consider picking up for Week 15.
There are no more NFL bye weeks.
Tennessee Titans (37 percent)
Next up — DET, @GB
The Titans defense is below average at best, but this week they’ll either face Matthew Stafford, who is dealing with a painful ribs injury or Chase Daniel, who is Chase Daniel. I’d expect the Titans to get a lead in this one and force the Lions into pass mode, which likely isn’t going to be a positive for their turnover ratio.
Cleveland Browns (50 percent)
Next up — @NYG, @NYJ
Daniel Jones was not 100 percent last week against the Seahawks and looked awful. There is a good chance he will continue to be limited as a runner, which severely hurts his ability to make plays. Or, they could go back to Colt McCoy. Either way, I like the Browns’ chances of forcing turnovers and keeping the score low.
New England Patriots (48 percent)
Next up — @MIA, BUF
The Patriots went cross country to take on rookie quarterback Justin Herbert two weeks ago and they completely baffled him. Bill Belichick is known for his ability to confuse rookie signal callers and Tua Tagovailoa is next on the list.
