Andrew Luck ($9000): solid play based on matchup not salary
Rodgers just couldn’t handle the Bills pass rush, which led to his worst game of the year (17/42 for 185 yards with no TD’s and 2 Int’s). He completed only 40.4% of his passes and now has 5 games on the road with 2 TD’s or less (5 total) and 12 combined passing TD’s in 7 road games. Rodgers has seven 300+ passing games with 8 games with 3 TD’s or more. Tampa is 21st in the league in QB fantasy defense with 4 teams scoring more than 25 fantasy points (1 in the last 8 games)-Much lower salary brings him back in play, but Aaron doesn’t have the greatest road resume in 2014.

Rob Gronkowski ($7600): solid player with some downside risk
Gronk has 68 yards in his last 9 games with 7 TD’s and 6 double digit target games and is the highest scoring TE with 10 TD’s. In week 1, he had 4 catches for 40 yards and 1 TD on 11 targets against the Dolphins, and in his home game against Miami in 2013, Rob had 2 catches for 5 yards on 5 targets. Gronkowski has 4 TD’s in his 6 career games vs. the Dolphins. Miami has the #1 TE defense in the league with no team scoring more than 19 fantasy points. Over their last 8 games, Miami has allowed only 11 catches for 142 yards with no TD’s to TE’s-The numbers say to stay away.

Calvin Johnson ($9400): neutral
Johnson has been electric in his last 2 games (19/304 with 3 TD’s on 25 targets), and in his 8 full games, Calvin has caught 54 balls for 863 yards with 6 TD’s on 96 targets. This would translate to 108 catches for 1,726 yards and 12 TD’s on 192 targets over a full season. Last year he only had 4 catches for 37 yards on 9 targets in his game at home against the Vikings. Minnesota is 13th in the league in WR defense with 4 teams scoring 45 fantasy points or more, and CB Xavier Rhodes has allowed 33/70 for 385 yards and 1 TD (4/18 for 30 yards in his last 3 games – GB, CAR, and NYJ). The Vikings will look to take Johnson away, but he is impossible to cover in single coverage. Hot ride with a respectable CB in coverage-Might be the week to fade.
Here’s a preview of what RBs our expert Shawn thinks you should pick for week 15 daily games. For the complete report, subscribe to scoutPRO here.
Le’Veon Bell ($9600): best matchup without salary implications
Bell is on an absolute incredible run. He has 711 combined yards in the last 3 games with 5 TD’s and 17 catches, putting him him on pace for 2,368 combined yards with 10 TD’s and 87 catches. He is turning into a 2014 version of Priest Holmes (2002 and 2003), Marshall Faulk (2000), and LaDainian Tomlinson (2004-2007). When you look back, Bell is probably on a higher pace with the exception of TD’s. On the year, he is averaging 24.0 touches per game with 10 games with 100 combined yards or more. The Falcons have allowed the most fantasy points to RB’s with 8 teams scoring 28.0 fantasy points or more. Le’Veon has the best opportunity in football at the RB position an is almost a lock for 25 fantasy points with higher upside if this game is played out as expected-Ride the hot pony as the Steelers have enough offense to keep the Falcons from stacking the box.

Aaron Rodgers ($9200): solid player with some downside risk
It’s hard not to love the way Aaron Rodgers plays, and he has the best feel for the pocket with great down field vision while on the move. He has 21 TD’s and five 300 yards games at home in 7 starts (12 TD’s and two 300 yards games on the road in 6 games). The Bills lead the league in sacks (46 – none last week against Manning) and have allowed the 2nd lowest amount of fantasy points to QB’s with only one team scoring more than 24 fantasy points (Brady – 34.35 in Buffalo). I’m sure the Bills would like to keep the game score in line-Elite player with downtick matchup, which makes him a low % play this week.
Rob Gronkowski ($8000): solid player with some downside risk
Gronk has been more steady than explosive in his last 3 games (4/71 with 1 TD, 5/78, and 7/98) and has 22 targets in his last 2 games and 102 on the year (8.5 per game). The Chargers are 2nd in the league in TE defense with no team scoring more than 18 fantasy points. Rob has an elite salary with what appears to be a tough matchup. Now here’s something that I’m torn about. The other day I was in a local Subway talking to a friend about the past week’s NFL’s games, and this gentlemen in passing said, “I’m hoping you’re not playing Gronk this week.” He then went to suggest that Gronkowski has a couple of cracked ribs. This man has ties to New England and I don’t know him, I just wonder is this great daily game insider trading info or fluff as Rob’s name hasn’t been mentioned on the injury report all week. Either way, Gronk would be a tough investment due to his salary.

Calvin Johnson ($9500): neutral
DraftKings closed off the Calvin loop hole in a hurry as Johnson had his 2nd 100 yard receiving game in 4 weeks with his 5 TD on the year. In his 7 full game, Calvin has 87 targets (12.4 per game), and in those games, he is averaging 6.6 catches for 100.7 yards. Last year he had 7 catches for 115 yards against Tampa, and CB Alterraun Verner has allowed 41/61 for 613 yards for 5 TD’s-On the rise, but he needs 2 TD’s to value at this price point.

Le’Veon Bell ($9400): best matchup without salary implications
Bell has 476 yards of offense in the last 2 weeks with 2 TD’s on 64 touches and is on a pace for 2279 yards with 87 catches and 7 TD’s. On the year, Le’Veon is averaging 23.4 touches per game, and his only missing ingredient is TD’s. Last year he had 107 combined yards and 1 TD against the Bengals. Cincinnati has allowed the 3rd most fantasy points to RB’s with 7 teams scoring more than 25 fantasy points in their last 9 games-Excellent matchup for a guy who is playing at an elite level.

Aaron Rodgers ($9800): best matchup without salary implications
Rodgers is coming off 2 relatively short games as far as TD’s, but in his last 6 games, Aaron has averaged 31.8 pass attempts per games with four 300 yard passing games. Rodgers has 20 TD’s and five 300 yards passing games at home, and the Falcons are just above league average in QB defense with 2 straight solid games (CLE and ARI). Atlanta has really faced 4 weak QB’s in the last months (McCown, Newton, Hoyer, and Stanton). They have allowed 15 passing TD’s (above the league average). Rodgers can name his total in this game, but the Falcon may give it up on the ground-Excellent swing, but he could be a high % trap.
Demaryius Thomas ($9500): solid play based on matchup not salary
Thomas had his 7-game 100 yard receiving streak end last week, but he more than made up for it with his 3 TD’s. Demaryius has 7 catches or more in his last 8 games with 9 targets or more in 10 of his 11 starts. In week 2, he only had 5 catches for 62 yards with 1 TD on 7 targets against the Chiefs (8/227 with no TD’s on 19 targets in 2 games vs. Kansas City in 2013). The Chiefs are 8th in the league WR fantasy defense with only 1 team scoring more than 40 fantasy points (9 WR TE’s allowed)-The beat goes on.
