2015 Fantasy Football Advice: Week 15 DFS Picks

Ryan continues to thrown money into the wind with Daily Fantasy Football.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

It's a very special edition of DFS picks. The holidays are just around the corner, and it's time to give out some DFS wisdom.

Here are this week's picks:

QB: Ryan Tannehill, MIA, $6,900

Tannehill isn't an ideal choice but he is a roll of the dice to allow for better players on the rest of the roster. The Dolphins' quarterback faces the Chargers, a middle of the pack defense. Tannehill had a solid game against the Giants -- 236 yards and a touchdown.

RB: Eddie Lacy, GB, $6,900

Lacy carried the ball 24 times for 124 yards and a touchdown last week. The Packers' offense has scuffled all season, and they may have found a boost in Eddie Lacy.

RB: David Johnson, ARI, $6,500

Johnson has rushed for 92 and 99 yards over his last two games against solid defense -- Minnesota and St. Louis. He is a solid gamble at this price.

WR: DeAndre Hopkins, HOU, $8,700

The ball didn't get to DeAndre Hopkins against the Patriots. I don't think that will be the case for the second week in a row.

WR: Julio Jones, ATL, $8,600

Jones hasn't reached 100 receiving yards his last three weeks, but he did have 15 receptions over the last two games for 181 yards -- a solid haul. Jones faces a defense that has given up the eighth most receiving yards this season -- 261.7.

WR: Golden Tate, DET, $6,900

Tate is a member of the Lions, who face the Saints this week. New Orleans is the only NFL team giving up 300-plus passing yards per game. There goes the pick.

TE: Delanie Walker, TEN, $6,300

Walker has collected over 70 yards in his last four games. Tight ends are a crapshoot, but Walker is a solid, cheap option.

K: Dustin Hopkins, WAS, $4,500

Washington is at home and are playing against a tough Bills defense -- I expect a few stalled drives in field goal range.

DEF: Pittsburgh Steelers, $4,600

The Steelers have recorded 37 points over the last two weeks. This week they face Brock Osweiler.  That should be money in the bank for the Steelers.
