Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Fifteen

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

So if you still have something to play for in fantasy football, you are planning on making some moves this week on your waiver wire.  Especially since so many more names went down just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Fantasy football can be so cruel sometimes but as owners, we press on and use the waiver wire to our advantage. Heading into week 15 is no different. Take a good look at the waiver wire because with only a week or two left until the fantasy football season is over, there isn't much time left to make moves. Good luck to all owners in their playoffs and contending for a championship.

Keepers

Denard Robinson- Running Back- Jacksonville Jaguars- With the injury to rookie T.J Yeldon, "Shoelace" made the most of his opportunity and should be added with the rash of running backs that went down in week 14. The former Michigan product totaled 87 yards versus the Colts and could be a fantasy asset these next few weeks for running back needy owners.

Isaiah Crowell- Running Back- Cleveland Browns- Finally someone worth owning from the Browns. Isaiah Crowell had himself a game in week 14 scoring over 27 fantasy points on his way to rushing for 145 yards and two scores. Isaiah Crowell could very well be the fantasy MVP of the playoffs.

Sleepers

Bryce Brown- Running Back- Seattle Seahawks- Surprise surprise, another running back went down in week 14. Rookie Thomas Rawls went down with a broken ankle and now it appears Bryce Brown will get the rock in Seattle. Over the years, Brown has been more of a disappointment than not but with the commitment to running the ball in Seattle and the offense playing at a whole other level over the last few weeks, running back starved fantasy owners may want to take a look at Bryce Brown.

Will Tye- Tight End- New York Giants- Hey what do you know? A player to look at on the waiver wire that isn't a running back. By scoring his first career touchdown in week 14, Tye put himself on the fantasy radar heading into week 15. He's filled in admirably for the injured Larry Donnell and could see an uptick in targets moving forward. Eli Manning likes to utilize his tight end and since catching all five targets tossed his way on Monday night, Tye may get the chance to shine again. If you need an upgrade at tight end, Will Tye is worth a flyer.

Jeepers

A.J. McCarron- Quarterback- Cincinnati Bengals- Now that the Red Rifle Andy Dalton is going to miss some time with his thumb injury, the former Alabama signal caller gets the chance to show what he can do under center. He threw two touchdowns and two interceptions versus Pittsburgh in week 14, but with all the weapons around him, could end up proving to be valuable to fantasy owners. It will be difficult for fantasy owners to pull the trigger on McCarron seeing how there hasn't been much in the way of injuries to quarterbacks.

Montee Ball- Running Back- New England Patriots- Recently signed to the practice squad, Montee Ball will probably not see any action for the defending Super Bowl champions since Brandon Bolden and James White have been doing just fine. If you're truly starved for a running back and want to try to outsmart the other owners in your league, maybe Montee Ball is worth a look but don't get too excited. There's a better chance he gets cut before he sees any action in a Patriots jersey.
