I also would consider starting Drew Lock this week -- but only if you are extremely desperate at the position and in a league with at least 14 teams.
Monitor the status for each of your players' games this week as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the NFL schedule and player availability. This week's schedule also features games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, so remember to check your lineup for player updates.
Check out my article on the players with the easiest and hardest playoff schedules for an idea of who to start -- and who to avoid -- this postseason.
Here are some of my favorite players in this week's rankings:
Lamar Jackson has finally regained his MVP form and it comes just in time for the fantasy football playoffs. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback ran for a season-high 124 yards and two scores on nine carries in Week 14. He also threw a passing touchdown in the win over the Cleveland Browns.
Jackson has a great shot of similar -- or even better -- production in Week 15 when the Ravens face the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are tied for allowing the most passing touchdowns to quarterbacks and have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to the position.
I expect at least 100 rushing yards and a score and two touchdown passes from Jackson in this matchup. He is my top quarterback for Week 15.
Tom Brady has thrown at least two touchdown passes in each of his last four games. He has also thrown multiple touchdown passes in seven of his last eight appearances. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback has had some issues with turnovers lately, but he should remain in your lineup for the semifinals.
I expect Brady to throw at least three touchdown passes in Week 15 when the Buccaneers face the Atlanta Falcons.
The Falcons have allowed the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in 2020. Brady is my No. 2 option and should help lift your team to a championship appearance.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff lands at No. 9 in my rankings. Goff has thrown multiple touchdown passes in just one of his last six appearances, but the Rams own a 5-1 record during that stretch. I still expect the team to lean on its running game this week, but Goff should hit his weapons for a few big plays with play-action passes.
He is a fringe QB1 for Week 15.
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock is in the only-use-if-you're-desperate category, due to his great Week 15 matchup. The Broncos face the Buffalo Bills, who have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the position.
I expect the Broncos to trail in this matchup and be forced to throw. Lock threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns in Week 14. He also threw two touchdown passes in Week 13.
He has a good shot to throw at least two touchdown passes and post a high yardage total in the semifinals. He is my No. 14 quarterback play.
