Thursday Night Football is upon us once more. Week 15 brings together two high powered passing offenses in the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers. With Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning facing off, this game is destined to produce some big fantasy points.
Keenan Allen- San Diego Chargers rookie wide receiever Keenan Allen has been a constant performer this season. With five 100-plus yard receiving games and five receiving touchdowns, Allen has been the top receiver for the Chargers. The Broncos pass defense ranks fourth worst in the NFL, allowing an average of 274.3 yards per game. With Philip Rivers showing that he is back to his old form, Allen is a must start in Week 15.
Knowshon Moreno- The NFL season began with a lot of questions regarding whom would be the Broncos top running back: Knowshon Moreno, Ronnie Hillman, or Montee Ball. However, it did not take long for Denver to realize that Moreno would be their feature back. While he only has one game of 100 plus yards rushing, Moreno has been an endzone beast, rushing for 10 touchdowns and bringing in two more through the air. Not to mention he has 921 rushing yards. Start Knowshon Moreno against the Chargers, as the Broncos will look to keep their air and ground attack relatively balanced.
Eddie Royal- Chargers receiver Eddie Royal started off the season with a bang, hauling in 10 receptions for 114 yards and five touchdowns through the first two games. However, through Week 14 he has just 37 receptions for 497 yards and 7 touchdowns. While the Broncos pass defense is still one of their weaknesses, fantasy owners should steer clear of the cold Eddie Royal.
Montee Ball- Knowhson Moreno and Montee Ball have begun to develop into a strong one-two punch for the Broncos. While Moreno is still the main go-to runningback for Denver, Ball has had his oppurtunites. He has rushed for 455 yards and four touchdowns so far in his rookie campaign. However, fantasy owners should steer clear of starting Ball as he is still the backup to Moreno and his workloads vary anywhere from a loan carry to 15 carries per game. Sit Montee Ball in Week 15.
