The playoffs are here and time to go get your fantasy football championship belt. You’ve come to the right spot for help setting the best possible lineup. If you have Christian McCaffrey, Austin Ekeler or Derrick Henry, you know what to do. If you don’t and have to make a tough choice, this is the place to be for those tough Week 15 fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em decisions at RB2.
Welcome to our weekly fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em article for RBs!
Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em: Week 15 RBs
Start: Isiah Pacheco Fantasy Outlook vs. Texans
Just like the QB Start’em, Sit’em article has routinely picked on the Detroit Lions’ passing defense throughout the season, this article has been targeting the Houston Texans. For good reason, as they have given up an average of 27.4 fantasy points per game (fppg) to opposing RBs on the season. Isiah Pacheco will be the latest benefactor of this matchup, and he has put up double-digit and RB2 numbers in four straight weeks. This week, he will make it five straight. Get him in your lineup.
Start: J.K. Dobbins Fantasy Outlook vs. Browns
In his first action since Week 6, J.K. Dobbins put up 120 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This week, he gets a tasty matchup against the Cleveland Browns, who are third from last in the league against RBs, giving up 25.1 fppg. This puts Dobbins firmly in play, and he makes for a solid RB2 start in the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Sit: Jamaal Williams Fantasy Outlook vs. Jets
Last week, Jamaal Williams had his worst fantasy outing of the season, putting up only 37 yards on 16 carries against the Minnesota Vikings. He also failed to find the end zone for the first time in five games, which showed just how low his floor can be without scoring a touchdown. The New York Jets are allowing only 18.6 fppg to opposing RBs, and without a role in the passing game, you are really banking on Williams scoring a touchdown this week. If you have no other options, you might have to roll with Williams. However, in the playoffs, you would preferably have a safer play and can keep Williams on your bench.
Sit: Raheem Mostert Fantasy Outlook vs. Bills
If Jeff Wilson sits this week against the Buffalo Bills, Raheem Mostert is in line to see a significant bump in workload. No matter, he still belongs on your fantasy bench in the first round of the playoffs. Earlier this season when these two teams played, Mostert had his worst week of the season, rushing eight times for 11 yards and catching one pass for seven yards. That is 2.8 PPR fantasy points. While he likely will eclipse those numbers this time around, he still makes for a desperation play this week. With your season on the line, you better look elsewhere.
