DraftKings Picks Week 15: NFL DFS Lineup Tips for Daily Fantasy Football GPP Tournaments

Our week 15 DraftKings lineup will feature a pair of rookie wide receivers on bad teams. However, Nico Collins and Amon-Ra St. Brown are solid bets to beat their modest prices. Sure, Collins and St. Brown aren’t “safe” daily fantasy football picks, but we’re creating daily fantasy football rosters for GPP contests, so we’re throwing caution to the wind. The savings they provide allow us to include a pair of high priced DFS studs that we are excited about this week.

Before we look at our picks, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings contests: Full point PPR, Four-point pass TD, 3-point bonuses per 100 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, Y 300 aerial yards.

DraftKings Picks Week 15: NFL DFS Lineup for GPP Tournaments

Sunday Main Board, $ 50,000 Budget

QB Jalen Hurts, Eagles vs. Soccer Team ($ 6,600). Hurts is expected to start Sunday after missing Week 13 with an ankle injury. Despite all the stresses on his high-level quarterback traits, or lack thereof, Hurts has been good for fantasy. He has scored at least 23.0 DraftKings points seven times, even eclipsing the 30-point plateau twice.

RB Joe Mixon, Bengals @ Broncos ($ 7,200). Mixon has had a rough patch for the Bengals, but he must still be treated as a workhorse, especially in a matchup against the Broncos in which they will be the favorites. He’s been shy lately, 10.4 and 8.8 DK points in the last two, but we’ve seen him go through stages where he was blocked by more than 20 points. It’s only fair to anticipate another performance of that quality.

RB Antonio Gibson, American Football Team @ Eagles ($ 6,000). This is a recovery point for Gibson, who scored more than 20.0 DK points in three of the four games that led to the disappointing Week 14 effort. The football team will enter the game a loser on the road, but the score It shouldn’t get out of hand as much, or as fast, as it did against the Cowboys last week.

WR Odell Beckham Jr., Rams vs. Seahawks ($ 5,400). Beckham seems to be finding a higher level of comfort in his new digs. He had 10 goals in week 12 and scored a touchdown in weeks 12-14. Cooper Kupp remains the dominant force on this offense, but Beckham remains a dynamic and explosive player capable of delivering a great score on Sunday. The advantage is too tempting to pass up at this modest price.

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions vs. Cardinals ($ 5,200). St. Brown has enjoyed his two best games as a professional in the past two weeks. He had 12 goals in each competition and scored the first touchdown of his career in that span. Even if TJ Hockenson (hand) comes back, St. Brown seems to have established himself as one of Jared Goff’s targets.

WR Nico Collins, Texans @ Jaguars ($ 3,500). We’re going to roll the dice a bit with Collins here against a reeling Jaguars team. Collins drew 10 goals last week, easily the best of his career, and it would make sense for the team to devise ways to feature him more prominently in the passing attack against Brandin Cooks. Collins was turning heads in camp, and will likely have a chance to do the same in the Texans’ remaining regular-season contests.

TE George Kittle, 49ers vs. Falcons ($ 7,500). Kittle is on a roll right now, and there is nothing one can say that speaks louder than the 79.7 DK points he has accumulated over Weeks 13-14. He drew 27 goals in that span, and while teams will adjust, trying to stop or slow a player is different than actually doing it. The Falcons will certainly try, but they haven’t exactly shown that they will be able to succeed in that area.

FLEX (RB) Myles Gaskin, Dolphins vs. Jets ($ 5,600). Gaskin landed on the reserve / COVID list during the Dolphins’ week 14 bye, but is expected to return on Sunday. You have received more consistent workloads in recent weeks, and as a result, you have obtained more consistent scores. He racked up 18.6 DK points in 26 touches against the Jets in Week 11, and another strong outing should be on the scorecards against the league’s 32nd defense according to DVOA.

DEF Texans @ Jaguars ($ 2,800). No one is going to praise the Texans, but the Jaguars are just an absolute disaster. As bad as the Texans are overall, they have played better defense based on various efficiency metrics. We love the near-minimal price and we like the advantage against a lousy Jags squad.
