There are a few wide receivers widely available that 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 six wide receivers with under 50% rostership in traditional fantasy football leagues that managers can consider picking up for Week 15.
There are no more NFL bye weeks.
Gabriel Davis, Bills (7 percent)
Next up — @DEN, @NE, MIA
Davis could very well win a lot of people season-long leagues this year. He’s caught a touchdown pass in four of his last five games and has flourished without John Brown in the fold. The Bills are really heating up down the stretch and Davis stands out as a premier target deep in enemy territory.
Russell Gage, Falcons (11 percent)
Next up — TB, @KC, @TB
Julio Jones has dealt with hamstring injuries all year and there’s really no point in Atlanta fielding him for the remainder of the season when it will likely finish last in the NFC South. Gage has fallen off after kicking off the year with a hot start but tallied the most receiving yards (82) he has since Week 1 on Sunday. He should be heavily featured moving forward if Jones sits down the stretch.
Tim Patrick, Broncos (28 percent)
Next up — BUF, @LAC, LV
Patrick has scored three touchdowns in his last two games and leads Denver in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. His target share could be concerning for some but he gets results when healthy. Noah Fant’s illness could help him see more balls thrown his way in Week 15 after catching three passes for 36 yards and a score on Sunday.
Nelson Agholor, Team (36 percent)
Next up — LAC, MIA, @DEN
Agholor had yet another ceiling game and tallied 100 receiving yards and a score on five catches. He’s remained one of the NFL’s premier deep threats for some time and the Raiders appear to be throwing the ball more and more.
Keke Coutee, Texans (45 percent)
Next up — @IND, CIN, TEN
Everyone jumped on Coutee following Will Fuller’s suspension and he provided a touchdown on Sunday to follow up the monster game he had in Week 14. The health of Brandin Cooks will affect Coutee’s involvement moving forward but his explosiveness in the open field is enough to expect a few more solid performances.
Mack Hollins, Dolphins (0 percent)
Next up — NE, @LV, @BUF
The Dolphins lost three key pass-catchers — DeVante Parker, Mike Gesicki, and Jakeem Grant — to injuries on Sunday. Hollins tied Lynn Bowden with a team-high nine targets in Week 14 and hauled in five passes for 66 yards. It’s safe to say that Hollins will be a lot more involved if just one of the players mentioned before can’t go in Week 16,
