As the case with myself as well, Fantasy owners every had to weather to storm this week and watch some of the top Fantasy Studs that weren’t able to produce due to terrible playing conditions. While others saw top stars like LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and Peyton Manning thrive in the cold/snowy weather. Congratulations if you have made it to the next round of the playoffs and good luck to those who are starting this week. I am here to give you my Week 15 Fantasy Football Sleepers.

Week 15 Fantasy Football Sleepers
Ryan Tannehill vs. New England Patriots
Tannehill is coming off a HUGE game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in which he threw for 3 TD and added 56 yards on the ground. In his last matchup against the Patriots he tossed 2 1st half touchdowns but the Patriots came back on a tear and Tannehill had 3 second half turnovers. The Patriots are coming off a game in which they gave up 391 yards and 3 TDs to Jason Campbell. I like Tannehill and his matchup this week.
Pierre Thomas vs. St. Louis Rams
Thomas only has 14 rushing yards over the previous two games but also has only seen 11 carries due to the team being down a ton of points and getting ahead. Well the Rams are giving up over 20 points a game to opposing Fantasy RBs. Thomas has a ton of upside in this weeks matchup and it may be a risk playing him but one I think is worth it.
Alfred Morris vs. Atlanta Falcons
Morris has had a frustrating season for owners who drafted him rather high. He only has 107 rushing yards in the last 3 games and outside the TD run against the Giants he has been irrelevant. The Falcons have given up the most rushing yards of anyone this season and that includes 302 yards and 3 TDs over the previous 2 games. We should see Morris make the most of his carries with this favorable matchup.
Cordalle Patterson vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Vikings have found ways to get Patterson the football over the past few weeks. He has 23 targets in the last 3 games including 3 rushing attempts as well. The Eagles have given up 20+ Fantasy points to WRs in 11 of 13 games (13 of 13 in PPR leagues). Patterson is a sneaky play this week that I really like.
Cecil Shorts vs. Buffalo Bills
After scoring for his 2nd straight game, Shorts has a great matchup for him this coming week against the Bills. They are giving up the 2nd most Fantasy points to opposing WRs this year and Shorts has a good shot at making it 3 straight games with a TD
Dennis Pitta vs. Detroit Lions
Pitta coming off his hip injury and all the questions around “limited” play he was going to have Sunday, he saw 11 targets catching 6 of them for 48 yards and a TD. While the Lions have been pretty good against opposing TEs (5 PPG) Pitta is one of Flaccos favorite weapons. You may be able to find him on many of waivers across leagues and I would land him if possible.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills
EJ Manuel is coming off another poor performance but this time throwing 4 INTs. The Jaguars are red hot right now winning 4 out of their last 5 games. The team is playing well and are worth a look if you are someone who streams D week to week.
