With the fantasy football playoffs just a couple of weeks away, Week 15 is crucial. Exploiting good matchups can take you over the top in your matchup.
A big part of setting your fantasy lineup — whether it’s season long or daily fantasy — is exploiting good matchups. Your best players will already be in your lineup regardless of matchup, but some of them have a much better advantage with a good matchup.
This week, there are a few players with great matchups. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Best fantasy football matchups for Week 15
5. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins (vs. NYJ)
Tua Tagovailoa hasn’t been an every-week fantasy starter this season. In fact, he’s fantasy’s QB27, which is also due to injury for a few weeks earlier in the season. He’s mainly been used as a bye week fill-in or a streaming option.
This week, Tagovailoa is the top streaming option of the week, going up against the New York Jets that have the 27th-ranked secondary and allow the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. In Tagovailoa’s earlier game against the Jets, he threw for 273 yards and a touchdown, and finished as the 12th-ranked quarterback.
Tagovailoa doesn’t have the ceiling or the floor of most fantasy starters, but he’s in a solid spot to have a great fantasy day, and has top-10 upside this week.
