Week 15 WR Start, Sit Fantasy Strategy: Keep T.Y. Hilton In Those Starting Lineups


As we get into the bye weeks, you might have some limited options. I tend to focus on lesser names that might not be on your radar as guys to slide right in. Injuries have also piled up now at the wide receiver position, so if a name in the sit section is the only option and have been producing, you can take your shot. However, I would advise you to see if any of the names in the start section this week are out there to be picked up. Check out our rankings, start sit tool, and fantasy football projections for this week to help make those tough decisions.

Start Em

T.Y Hilton Vs Houston Texans

T.Y. Hilton has been on a tear of late with the last three games over 80 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He torched Houston last time out and that is to nobody’s surprise as his track record speaks for itself. The Texans secondary has been an easy target this season but even more so of late with the suspension of Bradley Roby. Hilton has been a dud for most of this season but you can count on him down the stretch as the Colts offense continues to roll in these plus matchups.

Keke Coutee @ Indianapolis Colts

Keke Coutee still came away with a few catches and a touchdown last week against the Bears. He has a bit easier task this week against the Colts, who he posted 141 yards on eight catches. With Houston’s wide receiver depth dwindling, Coutee is going to be a solid play for the next few weeks. He is more valuable in PPR leagues but I like him as a strong WR3 option this week or a deep FLEX play.

Emmanuel Sanders Vs Kansas City Chiefs

In what should be a game where the Saints need to put up some points, Emmanuel Sanders is worth a look as a WR3 option. It is a high total game in New Orleans, and Sanders has had 11 targets over the last two weeks. He has been an up and down play and while the Chiefs have limited wide receivers in fantasy points, this scenario is a bit different with the Saints. I still expect Taysom Hill to start and Sanders has been looked at with him under center.

Marvin Jones @ Tennessee Titans

Matthew Stafford is unlikely to play this week so there is certainly hesitation on the Lions teammates for fantasy. With Kenny Golladay still sitting out practices, Marvin Jones is a strong option. Jones has seen 10, 6, 12, 12, and 8 targets over the last five weeks. He has been a target hog and we know the Lions will be consistently trailing. This is also a good spot with the Titans, who have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points per game.

Sit Em

Jets WRs @ Los Angeles Rams

New York will roll out their healthy wideouts who have been streaming options for most weeks but this is a week where you shouldn’t want anything to do with this group. The Rams have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers and the Rams will be able to just control this game with ease.

Tyler Boyd Vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Outside of the big 70-yard touchdown that Tyler Boyd created himself, he has done nothing since Joe Burrow went down. We generally see one wide receiver put up a decent week as it was AJ Green last week. It was a better matchup last week than it is this week. Pittsburgh has a good secondary and the pressure they will be able to get this week is going to be a major plus.

DeVante Parker Vs New England Patriots

DeVante Parker is back practicing this week but the hamstring injury in addition to the matchup is a pretty big concern. The Patriots have allowed the 7th fewest fantasy points per game and Stephon Gilmore is still a strong cornerback that will see a ton of Parker. Parker has had some up and down games and I don’t love Tua to thrive this week against Bill B and the Patriots. This should be a fairly low scoring game on both sides.

DJ Chark @ Baltimore Ravens

I was wrong on DJ Chark last week as it certainly hasn’t mattered if the targets are still there of late. If Chark can’t succeed against these matchups, it is hard to see him doing well against Baltimore, who has been strong against wide receivers this season. Jacksonville has really fallen off with their offense after at least being fantasy relevant. Chark is a tough start right now despite the name value and success dating back to last season.
