1. Brian Westbrook (PHI) – Following back to back monster efforts, it’s fairly safe to say that Westbrook has officially reclaimed his elite fantasy status. We fully expect him to chew up and spit out a soft Cleveland run defense in week 15. The Browns rank 28th in the NFL against the run giving up close to 150 rushing yards per game. Anything short of a huge fantasy effort would be a disappointment with this match up. Check injury report: ankle, knee
2. DeAngelo Williams (CAR) – He now has now scored at least 1 TD in his last 7 games with 12 total during that span. Williams is currently the hottest and most consistently productive player in all of fantasy football. He should continue the trend in week 15 with a very promising match up against Denver at home. The Broncos rank just 26th in the NFL against the run allowing almost 140 rushing yards per game. In addition, they have allowed 17 TD’s on the ground through 13 games. We see no reason why Williams can not run all over this defense.
3. Adrian Peterson (MIN) – After a mildly disappointing week 14 performance against Detroit, Peterson will take the show on the road to Arizona this week. Surprisingly, the Cardinals are actually very solid against the run. They give up less than 100 rushing yards per game on average and have allowed only 10 rushing TD’s through 13 games. We aren’t completely knocked out by this match up, but the Vikings are fighting for a playoff spot, so we expect Peterson will rise to the occasion. As always, he is a must start.
