Week 15 is here and so is this week’s wide receiver sit and start report. There are many favorable matchups this week, so be sure to take advantage of them as the fantasy season begins to wind down.
Desean Jackson- The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. While Eagles quarterback Nick Foles’ season has slowed down a bit now that he has thrown an interception , fantasy owners should expect him to rebound against the pourous Vikings secondary. This is good news for Desean Jackson, who has had a solid season so far, hauling in 65 receptions for 1,080 yards and 8 touchdowns. Fantasy owners of Jackson should expect a strong performance in Week 15.
Marques Colston- The New Orleans Saints have one of, if not the most prolific passing attack in the NFL. While receiver Marques Colston has not been having his best season to date, he is still a reliable fantasy player. Fantasy owners should expect Colston to build off his impressive game against the Carolina Panthers last week, where he brought in 9 receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns. His Week 15 opponent, the St. Louis Rams, have a much weaker defense, and a secondary that ranks 11th worst in the NFL. Start Marques Colston against the Rams.
Hakeem Nicks- The New York Giants season has been very up and down this season, and one of the stats that can really speak to the trivial times in New York is receiver Hakeem Nicks has yet to bring in a receiving touchdown this season. Nicks is coming off one of his best games this season, where he hauled in 5 passes for 135 yards. Unfortunately the Giants will face the daunting Seattle Seahawks defense, who ranks top in the league in pass and overall defense. Sit Hakeem Nicks in Week 15.
Vincent Jackson- Tampa Bay Buccaneers star receiver Vincent Jackson has added yet another 1,000 plus yard receiving season to his resume, as he has recorded 1,033 yards so far this season. Unfortunately for Jackson and the Bucs, the San Fransisco 49ers are coming to town this week. The 49ers defense has yet again been strong this season, and their pass defense currently ranks 4th in the NFL, allowing an average of just 204 yards per game. Fantasy owners of Jackson should look elsewhere for receiver production this week.
