FanDuel Picks Week 15: NFL DFS lineup advice for daily fantasy football GPP tournaments



Since we’re playing in GPP tournaments, we’re rolling the dice and building our Week 15 FanDuel tournament lineup around Texans’ rookie quarterback Davis Mills. He’s low priced at $6,800, and the savings allow us to put together a NFL DFS lineup that we feel excited about from top to bottom. This lineup obviously features plenty of boom-or-bust prospects, but we’re shooting for the moon here and sole possession of first place.

Before we get into this week’s lineups, here are the basic rules for FanDuel contests. Scoring is pretty standard, with the only notable settings being four-point passing TDs and half-point PPR.

FanDuel Picks Week 15: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday main slate, $60,000 budget, no more than four players from one team

QB Davis Mills, Texans @ Jaguars ($6,800). Mills has played better in recent weeks, scoring at least 18.0 FanDuel points in three of his past six contests. The Jaguars are one of the worst defenses in the league, so Mills will be in a good position to deliver a decent fantasy effort and put the lineup in position to finish in the green.

RB James Conner, Cardinals @ Lions ($8,300). Conner may cede some receptions to Chase Edmonds, but he’s been as steady as they come with just three games below 10.0 FD points. The Cardinals are heavily favored against the Lions, so the game script suggests that we could see plenty of running and scoring from the Cardinals’ backs on Sunday.

RB Antonio Gibson, Football Team @ Eagles ($6,900). Gibson let a lot of people down with a poor Week 14 showing, but we’re going back to the well in what should be a better matchup. The Eagles have been generous against running backs in terms of allowing FanDuel production, and Gibson is still only a game removed from a four-game stretch in which he scored at least 19.6 FD points three times.

WR Diontae Johnson, Steelers vs. Titans ($7,200). Targets continue to flow Johnson’s way. His 10 against the Vikings last Thursday night marked the fifth time in a row he received double-digit looks. As long as he’s hogging targets and wearing a reasonable price tag, we’re going to be interested in naming him our WR1 in these lineups.

WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

WR Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins vs. Jets ($7,100). Waddle may not be close to a finished product — we don’t expect him to operate as a short-area receiver for much of his career — but he’s finding his footing in the NFL nonetheless. He’s seen double-digit targets in each of his past two games and scored in double figures in four of his past five. The Jets defense ranks dead last in pass DVOA, so Waddle shouldn’t have many issues spinning off another solid performance.

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions vs. Cardinals ($5,900). St. Brown appears as if he’s developing strong chemistry with quarterback Jared Goff. The rookie has earned 12 targets in each of the last two games and scored his first career touchdown over that span as well. Even if top target T.J. Hockenson returns from a hand injury, St. Brown has probably done enough to maintain his high perch within the Lions’ pass-catching pecking order.

WEEK 15 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

TE George Kittle, 49ers vs. Falcons ($7,800). Kittle is on fire right now, so he’s likely to be a popular selection on Sunday, but sometimes it’s best to employ the “KISS” method and accept the easy answers. He’s scored 62.7 FD points on 27 targets over the past two weeks, and he should be able to find more success against a poor Falcons defense.

FLEX (RB) Rashaad Penny, Seahawks @ Rams ($6,100). Penny has played well on occasion when he’s been healthy, but health has been an elusive attribute for him over his NFL career. He’s in one piece for now, though, and we’re going to call on him in what could evolve into a fun, back-and-forth NFC West showdown. A repeat of his 26.3-point performance may be tough to deliver, but another healthy workload should be in the cards.

DEF Texans @ Jaguars ($4,000). This is 100 percent about the ineptitude of the Jaguars and picking on a team that appears to be unraveling at the seams. For all of the Texans’ struggles, they’re ranked 10th in defensive DVOA, so they should be able to cause problems for the hapless Jags, who have averaged 9.1 points over the past seven weeks.
