Bucs vs Rams – St. Louis is a -2.5 favorite. The total was set at a low 41.

Dallas has been better than average defending against opposing tight ends while New York has offered up a solid well-rounded defense overall.
Bears vs. Vikings – Minnesota was a -5.5 favorite in this game. The total was coming in at 42.5.
Heading into Week 13, the Vikings had yet to allow a quarterback to score more than two touchdowns in a game. The Vikings rank 25th in defending the tight end position.
Zach Miller ($3600) - Though he is dealing with a rib injury in addition to an illness, Miller is still likely to play in Sunday's game against Minnesota. He is coming off a solid game against Washington (five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown)
Bills vs. Redskins – Buffalo is a -1 point road favorite with a 44 total.
The Bills have been solid against opposing tight ends this season.
The Redskins had allowed at least two touchdowns scored in each game since Week 6 coming into Week 13.
Tyrod Taylor ($5600) - Despite the somewhat down game, Taylor still made his fantasy owners happy with 53 yards on the ground.
Chiefs vs. Ravens – Red hot KC is a -7 road favorite in Baltimore with a low 41.5 total.
RBs have scored only four total touchdowns against KC this year while allowing zero or one passing touchdowns from Week 6 through Week 11. The Chiefs do have trouble against top ranking receivers.

Kamar Aiken - ($4.6K) - He secured 5-of-7 targets for 90 yards in a tough matchup against the Seahawks, performing admirably.
Alex Smith ($5.1K) - Let's give Smith some love against this Ravens team that has allowed plenty of touchdowns to opposing QBs. Smith has led his team to a seven-game win streak. Smith completed 15-of-23 passes for 191 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Chiefs' 10-3, Week 14 win over the Chargers. He added 40 rushing yards on five carries.
Panthers vs. Giants – Undefeated Carolina comes to the Meadowlands on Sunday as a -5 road favorite. There was a high total of 48 here.
No running back has rushed for more than 70 yards in a game against the Panthers. Entering Week 13, since Week 9 the highest rushing total for a single back was 39. The Panthers rank top 10 in defending against the pass.
Falcons vs. Jaguars – Jacksonville is a -3 home favorite here. The total is a high 49.
Atlanta has been tough on opposing QBs but the Atlanta defense has allowed the most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season.
The Jaguars have allowed the third most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season. They are bad against tight ends as well. Jacksonville does have an elite run defense.
T.J. Yeldon (knee) is officially doubtful for Week 15 against the Falcons. That means Denard Robinson ($4.6K) rushed 14 times for 75 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 14 blowout of the Colts, adding a 12-yard reception.
Titans vs. Patriots – New England comes into this game as a -14 with a total of 47.
The Titans have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Wide receivers and tight ends can be in play against these Titans.
Rob Gronkowski ($7.7K) already has 1,000 yards this year and will be the No. 1 tight end option in fantasy for Week 15. He’ll also be the most owned.
Texans vs. Colts - Houston is a -2 favorite here with a total of 41.5.
The Texans have been solid against opposing tight ends this season. The Colts have allowed the tenth-most points to opposing backs and the 12th most fantasy points to opposing tight ends for which Houston has neither we want to target.
Packers vs. Raiders – Green Bay is a -3 point favorite in Oakland. The total is coming in at 47.
The Raiders have permitted the 6th most fantasy points to opposing passers. They have allowed the 8th most fantasy points to opposing running backs. They are below average in defending opposing wide receivers and downright awful defending tight ends.
The Packers rank 11th in the league in defending against the pass. They have not allowed a running back to catch more than five passes while giving up only one receiving touchdown to opposing runners.
Aaron Rodgers ($7.4K) completed 22-of-35 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 28-7, Week 14 win over the Cowboys. This is a highly favorable matchup versus the Raiders defense allowing the 6th most fantasy points to opposing passers.
Eddie Lacy ($5.2K) - He rushed 24 times for 124 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 14 win over the Cowboys, adding a 24-yard reception.

Browns vs. Seahawks – Seattle is a -14 home favorite with a total of 42.
Seattle has struggled against opposing tight ends this season.
Cleveland has allowed the 7th more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and Seattle will have to continue to lean on Russell Wilson ($7K) after losing Thomas Rawls (ankle) for the season in Sunday's win.
Broncos vs. Steelers – Pittsburgh is a -6.5 favorite here with a total of 44.5.
There is no going up against Denver’s elite defense from a fantasy perspective.
Pittsburgh ranks 1st against opposing running backs.
Dolphins vs. Chargers – San Diego is a -2 point favorite. The total was set at 45.5.
Miami ranks among the bottom 10 teams against the pass and run. The Dolphins are better than average defending against opposing tight ends though they have allowed a few big games to tight ends.
The Chargers allow the 4th most yards to both running backs and receivers. Likewise, they have given up 13 total touchdowns to opposing RBs in 11 games. They also have the 2nd worst tight end defense in the league this season.
Bengals vs. 49ers – Cincinnati is a -4.5 visiting favorite with a low total of 40.
The Bengals have only allowed one touchdown to tight ends this year.
The 49ers have been vulnerable defending all positions this season.
Typically we would be all over Jeremy Hill and AJ Green against San Francisco's woeful defense but with Andy Dalton out, we're not 100 percent how these two will click with his backup.
Tyler Eifert (concussion) has been ruled out for this game.
Cardinals vs. Eagles – Arizona is a -3 favorite with a high total of 50 here.
Arizona is a top ten defense against the run.
The Eagles are tough against opposing tight ends as well.
Lions vs. Saints – New Orleans is a 3-point home favorite. This is among the highest totals of the week at 51.
Detroit has an average run defense. The Lions are weak defending opposing quarterbacks with the pass offense.
The Saints rank last in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks and tight ends and they rank 29th in defending against the run.
Brandin Cooks ($5.9K) caught three of five targets for 29 yards in the Saints' Week 14 win over the Buccaneers. He is a "must go" against the league's worst pass defense.
Ben Watson ($4.8K) - he got seven of 11 targets for 70 yards in the Saints' Week 14 win over the Buccaneers.
Eric Ebron ($3K) - He will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury and goes up against a vulnerable Saints defense.
Drew Brees ($6.6K) - completed 31-of-41 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns and rushed three times for no yards in the Saints' Week 14 win over the Buccaneers.
