This may be one of the more healthy wide receiver pools we’ve had all season going into Week 15’s slate. As long as WR Tyreek Hill is OK after leaving MNF in Week 14 multiple times, most of the top wideouts will be healthy. It’ll make it a bit more difficult to find injury value at wide receiver but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any value plays for the Sunday main slate on DraftKings. Let’s examine some value options heading into Week 15.
NFL DFS Picks, Week 15: WR value plays
Noah Brown, HOU vs. TEN, $5,000
There may not be a crazier four-game sample than Brown his past four out. The past two games? Seven targets and no catches. The previous two games? 13 catches for 325 yards and a TD. The Houston Texans enter a big game vs. the Titans, who don’t have as much to play for at 5-8. The Texans are 7-6 and in the playoff picture. C.J. Stroud and the offense struggled big time in the rain vs. the Jets last week. We’ll chalk that one up more as a fluke. WR Nico Collins left that game and could sit out Week 15. If that’s the case, Brown should play around 70-75% of the offensive snaps and get a healthy amount of targets in a good matchup. DK players who don’t do their research may overlook Brown given his goose eggs the past two games.
Jayden Reed, GB vs. TB, $4,900
You could argue Reed has been the Packers’ offensive MVP this season through Week 14. With WR Christian Watson out on MNF this past week, Reed was used heavily, playing 69% of the snaps while receiving 10 targets and four carries. Reed is being used all over the field and is a great PPR option given his target volume in the slot. Even when Watson is healthy, Reed will still be involved in the offense. He’s also a threat to score with four TDs in the past five games. The Packers need a bounce-back performance in Week 15 in a very important game for the NFC playoff picture. Expect Reed to be involved again and be a good floor play.
Jahan Dotson, WAS vs. LAR, $4,700
The Rams-Commanders game feels like a great spot to stack. Los Angeles has a better QB-WR set up but even Commanders QB Sam Howell ($6,300) has some stack appeal. Dotson isn’t a bad pairing at this price point. Dotson hasn’t played fewer than 72% of the offensive snaps all season, and his high has reached 94% in some games. So we know Dotson will be on the field most of the game. The over/under is at 49, which is second-highest in Week 15 on DraftKings Sportsbook as of this writing. Dotson has reached double-digit fantasy points on DraftKings in four of the past six games. He’s a strong value play for tournaments and is a good run-back if you’re stacking the Rams.
