Fantasy Football Week 15 Predictions

The NFL is a “what have you done for me lately” business. Fantasy football is even more ruthless. It is what can you do for us next week.For Drew Brees and Jay Cutler owners cursing their starting quarterback’s inconsistency in a disappointing season, you are going to like what they have in store for you Monday night. You have to love the matchup of those gunslingers going against their own shaky defenses this week.This is Bleacher Report’s Week 15 Predictions, where we hype theMVPs, breakouts, busts, bounce back players, top matchup plays by position and waiver wire options. Expect to see a lot of hype around the hidden gems in the New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears matchup, among others.Heck, we even find value in the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans in this pivotal week. Yeah, you’re going to want to read all about that here. We help you get a jump into your fantasy Super Bowl.QB Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints (at Chicago Bears)Projected stat line: 370 yards passing, four touchdownsThis has been a modest season by Brees’ lofty fantasy standards, but his loyal owners are going to be rewarded in a pivotal Week 15 matchup that can propel teams to their Super Bowl. The Bears are a defense ripe for the picking.Not only is Chicago the worst team in fantasy against quarterbacks, but it has also given up some huge performances to the NFL’s elite passers. Aaron Rodgers ripped them for 617 yards and 10 touchdowns in two games, while Tom Brady went for 354 5 in one.Also, the Saints defense hasn’t played well, so facing the Bears’ own potent offense should make this a wide open game on Monday Night Football, particularly since the weather reportis unseasonably mild. Odds Sharkdoesn’t list this game as the highest total of the week (54), but the quarterbacks facing these suspect defenses can make it so.Load up on your stars and sleepers on both teams. Brees will have plenty of targets for Jimmy Graham, Kenny Stills, Marques Colston and even Nick Toon. Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas should be busy in the ground game, at the goal line and out of the backfield, too.This is fantasy Monday night magic personified. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts (vs. Houston Texans)WR Steve Smith, Baltimore Ravens (vs. Jacksonville Jaguars)WR Marquess Wilson, Chicago Bears (vs. New Orleans Saints)Projected stat line: Five catches for 80 yards and a touchdownThe most likely places to find breakthrough fantasy players this time of year is to look behind the injuries. With Brandon Marshall (rib) out for the season, the Chicago Bears will jerseys for cheap
turn to a player who has spent the bulk of the season idle, wideout Marquess Wilson.Wilson has just seven catches for 53 yards in his career, but he can trump those totals (with a touchdown) in his first NFL start in place of Marshall. Most important: Wilson has quarterback Jay Cutler in his corner. Cutler told Rich Campbell of Chicago Tribuneback in November:You forget how good he is (as) such a young player. We had him really going at training camp before he got hurt, so we were really excited about him. Guy gets hurt, goes on IR and you kind of forget about him a little bit because you have to move on. So getting him back is a little bit of a boost for us.
