Fantasy Football Week 15 Sleepers: Jay Cutler, Martavis Bryant and others

Looking for some sleepers for your Week 15 playoff matchup? Ray takes a look at some Week 15 sleepers that could help you win your fantasy playoff game this week, including Martavis Bryant, Joique Bell and others.

This weekly feature will take a look at some sleepers at each position who could help fantasy teams win their weekly matchup. To determine the sleepers, I will be using the fantasy points allowed at each position statistics, courtesy of AsktheCommish.com. I take a look at which teams/players are playing against the defenses that have allowed the most fantasy points at each position.

For week 15, I will use the fantasy points allowed this season, so we are getting a good idea as to which team defenses are allowing the most fantasy points at each position. Below is a look at how my sleeper selections performed last week:

Sleeper Performance: Week 14

Quarterback

Russell WilsonSeahawks vs Eagles -  22-37, 263 yards, 2 TDs, 10 carries, 48 yards, 1 TD

Running Back

Bishop SankeyTitans vs Giants -  9 carries, 25 yards

Wide Receiver

Mike Wallace, Dolphins vs Ravens 3 receptions, 39 yards

Tight End

Delanie Walker, Titans vs Giants -  4 receptions, 27 yards

Fantasy Points Allowed: Year to Date

Below you will find a table (courtesy of Ask the Commish) that lists, by team defense, the fantasy points each team defense has allowed to opposing quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.

I have selected my sleeper picks based on the fantasy points allowed through week 14, assuming the trend (allowing more fantasy points) continues.

Week 15 Sleepers

Quarterback

Jay Cutler, Bears vs Saints

The Saints are reeling, especially after getting thrashed at home to the Panthers in Week 14. The Saints defense ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs this season, giving up an average of 19 fantasy points per game, and Cutler should have a big game on Monday Night Football.

Running Back

Joique Bell, Lions vs Vikings

The Vikings rank 24th in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs through 14 weeks, giving up an average of 19 fantasy points per game. The Lions offense appears to be clicking over the last few weeks, so look for Bell to put up a solid performance in Week 15.

Wide Receiver

Martavis Bryant, Steelers vs Falcons

The Falcons defense ranks 30th in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers through 14 weeks, giving up an average of 24 fantasy points per game. Bryant is coming off an excellent Week 14 performance catching 4 of 6 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown. He should have another solid performance in Week 15 in what could be a high scoring game in the dome.

Tight End

Zach Ertz, Eagles vs Cowboys
