Week 15 fantasy football takeaways and reactions
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down every Week 15 game from Sunday with a focus on usage, injuries and notes that you won't find in the box score. Tony Pollard had a huge day in Ezekiel Elliott's (calf) absence; don't expect the production to stop as long as Pollard continues to see a workhorse role. Tom Brady and this Buccaneers passing game finally got cooking against the Falcons, while Calvin Ridley's big day was just another example of the reality that he's truly an every-week fantasy WR1. Basically everyone on the Titans balled out, but the likes of D'Andre Swift and Marvin Jones also deserve credit for their solid performances. Jonathan Taylor breakout RB1 szn continues; just realize the Texans have now lost twice to the Colts despite Deshaun Watson having the team knocking on the door of the end zone during the game's final moments before someone else has coughed up the ball. Additional topics include: the rise of David Montgomery, if we can trust Russ and company next week against the Rams after another dreadful performance, what to make of Jalen Hurts' big day, Travis Kelce's historically ridiculous run over the past half decade, and much more.
