Week 15 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings & Projections: Jonathan Taylor Finishing The 2020 Season Strong
The fantasy football playoffs are in full force now as the two weeks will make or break seasons. It has been an up and down year with injuries and crazy covid-related weeks but we are near the finish line. Looking at the likely finishers among each position it will be a battle between Kyler Murray and Patrick Mahomes for the top-scoring quarterback this season. Alvin Kamara and Dalvin Cook are the top-two PPR backs but Cook is coming in hot despite playing one less game. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce both ranked number one in their positions and Kelce leads the entire league in receiving yards. Younghoe Koo and Pittsburgh are the top kicker and defense leaders this season.

Week 15 Quarterback Rankings
We have the usual suspects up top this week, including an intriguing game between the Chiefs and the Saints this week. Both teams are in a battle for the one-seed, which gets the bye. Patrick Mahomes is second in quarterback scoring this season and while the Saints defense has played well of late this is a different story facing the Chiefs. There are a lot of names that cracked the top-ten this week despite maybe not having a ton of finishes this season. Philip Rivers is one of them. He ranks QB18 this season but faces the Texans this week who have allowed 22.4 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season.
Ryan Tannehill also sneaks in against the Lions, who have allowed the 7th most fantasy points per game. Tannehill won’t have a high volume week but can certainly chuck 200+ yards and a few scores against this defense. Tom Brady is in line for a big week against the Falcons, as they have allowed the most fantasy points per game this season to quarterbacks. Justin Herbert is in a great spot against the Raiders but there is something interesting happening with Austin Ekeler back and it isn’t positive. Herbert is throwing to Ekeler quite a bit and Herbert’s upside and ability to stretch the ball downfield has not been seen since Ekeler’s return.
Week 15 Running Backs Rankings
It will be Derrick Henry’s world down the stretch as he faces the Lions this week, and they have allowed 31 fantasy points per game to running backs on the season. Henry is now up over 1,500 yards and sits with 15 touchdowns on the season. Staying in the AFC South, Jonathan Taylor gets the Houston Texans, who keep on giving and giving to opposing running backs this season. Taylor had a monster day against the Raiders and that should be the case again this week. Houston has allowed 1,790 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns this season. He also has had a strong workload over the last few weeks.
David Montgomery has had an excellent past two weeks and while the Vikings are a little bit tougher run defense, they are still middle of the road. Montgomery has a safe workload to be considered a top-ten option this week. Speaking of workload, Austin Ekeler has returned to a monster target share and now faces the Raiders, who have allowed a 73-557-2 line to running backs this season and the third-most fantasy points per game.
Week 15 Wide Receivers Rankings
Tyreek Hill pulled up to be a bit limited this past week but said he is good to go versus New Orleans. This secondary has played better of late but still are a team I don’t mind targeting with more elite passing games. Hill comes in as the number one option this week with Davante Adams right behind him. The Packers will face Carolina, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to wide receivers over the last five weeks. I would have loved to put some Buccaneers in the top-ten but they are sitting outside this week. The fact Brady spreads the ball around so much and doesn’t take deep shots downfield, it limits this offense, especially Chris Godwin. They are fine options but like most of the season, the ceiling isn’t there.
Calvin Ridley is coming off a big game and I like him a lot this week as the Buccaneers have allowed the 11th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Julio Jones missed this past week and Ridley would take a lot of the focus but thrived last week against the Chargers. Minnesota has allowed the 6th most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Allen Robinson is coming off another fantastic game and is now WR7 in PPR scoring.
Week 15 Tight Ends Rankings
No surprise to have another Chiefs player atop of their position, as Travis Kelce is just destroying this year. He gets the Saints, who improved against tight ends as the season went along but Kelce is now up to a 90-1250-9 line. Love him in this spot. Mark Andrews is looking to finish the season strong and faces the Jaguars, who have allowed ten touchdowns to tight ends this season. Andrews ranks 10th in scoring despite missing a few games and still has a game in hand as I type this out. Robert Tonyan continues to produce and the touchdown department has been kind. He has nine on the season and faces the Panthers this week, who have allowed 14.5 PPR points per game to tight ends on the year. Rob Gronkowski had a touchdown last week but otherwise, the Bucs offense was somewhat quiet. With the Falcons allowing a 73-723-

Facing the Broncos this season has been a dream spot for fantasy kickers. This week that goes to Tyler Bass of the Buffalo Bills. Bass has been excellent this season, averaging 8.7 fantasy points per game and is 5th in overall scoring. Denver has allowed the most fantasy points per game to kickers this season. Harrison Butker and Wil Lutz square off in what should be a high-scoring affair and both crack the top-ten this week. Lutz hasn’t had a ton of chances of late but still remains a strong option. Jacksonville allows just about a high in everything and kickers are no different. Kickers have averaged the 4th most fantasy points per game this season.
Week 15 Defense Rankings

Both the Steelers and Rams are in prime spots this week. Pittsburgh takes on the Bengals, who have allowed the 5th most fantasy points per game. The Steelers have played some better defenses and lost a few names of late but I expect a ceiling-like game as they are in a slump this week. As for the Rams, they face the Jets, and no surprise to see the Jets giving up some big games to defenses. It is a good week for the top-scoring defenses as Baltimore will face Jacksonville. Gardner Minshew is returning but it won’t matter much as this group has struggled no matter who is under center.
