SB Nation and XFINITY are teaming up in The Extra Point Poll series where we will pick two players at the same position and ask you who will have the better fantasy week. Last week we asked you which wide receiver would have the most receiving yards in Week 15, Broncos WR Eric Decker or Patriots WR Wes Welker. Well, Decker had the bigger game on Sunday, even though both the Broncos and Patriots were involved in high scoring affairs. Decker caught 8 of his 11 targets for 133 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos 34-17 win in Baltimore, while Welker caught 5 of his 9 targets for 56 yards and no touchdowns in the Patriots 41-34 loss to the 49ers. Patriots QB Tom Brady led a huge comeback on Sunday Night Football, but came a bit short, and targeted tight end Aaron Hernandez and WR Brandon Lloyd, rather than Welker, in the comeback attempt.

In this week's Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY, we will take a look at two running backs: Redskins RB Alfred Morris and Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch. Morris will be facing the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday. The Eagles defense gives up the 11th fewest fantasy points to running backs this season, but have given up 122 yards per game on the ground, ranking 23rd against the run. Lynch will be home to face the tough 49ers defense on Sunday Night Football. The San Francisco defense gives up the fewest fantasy points to running backs this season, and rank 2nd in the NFL against the run, so Lynch will have his work cut out for him. Then again, so will the 49er defense, as the Seahawks have put up 50 or more points in two straight games.

Which running backs will have the most rushing yards in Week 15: Alfred Morris or Marshawn Lynch?
