Kadarius Toney, Allen Robinson, Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Jaylen Waddle, Austin Hooper, Tyler Higbee and Tyler Lockett ended up on the reserve / COVID list, but they’re not the only ones starting, sit down their head hurts.

WEEK 15 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Get started, feel them
Will DJ Moore play in week 15?
Moore (hamstring) was limited in practice all week, and coach Matt Rhule said Thursday that he hopes his best wide receiver will play against the Bills.
This isn’t a great showdown for Moore, but with double-digit goals and at least 87 yards in each of the last two games, he’s clearly a high-floor option, especially in the PPR leagues. Keep it in your lineup unless you have top-notch backups. If Moore is out, expect more targets for Robby Anderson, who would be a boom-or-bust flex.
UPDATES FOR SUNDAY WEEK 15:
Sunday RBs | Lamar | Fournette
Will Zach Ertz play week 15?
Hamstring I only have a limited practice on Friday, but as of now, there doesn’t seem to be much concern about his availability for Sunday’s game against Detroit.
As long as Ertz is active, it’s a low-end TE1. This matchup isn’t very good on paper, but Detroit’s defense is soft overall, so Ertz could easily take advantage of it. It has shown a decent PPR floor and high ceiling while with Arizona, making it as good as any other low-end starter TE you might consider.
WEEK 15 UPDATES MONDAY / TUESDAY:
Thielen | Mayfield | Landry / Hooper | It hurts / McLaurin / Lockett
Will Marquise Brown play week 15?
Brown (disease) I lost practice on Thursday and came back on Friday., but it’s hard to get a good read on his availability for Sunday afternoon’s game against Green Bay.
It’s been a bit chilly for Hollywood after its steamy start to the season. He’s still seeing his fair share of targets and catching at least five balls a game, so his PPR floor is respectable, but with Lamar Jackson (ankle) also in the air this week, fantasy owners might want to plan to lay down. Brown this week. . There are plenty of pivots widely available if Brown is ruled out, including his teammate Rashod Bateman, who should see a nice increase in goals, and there are too many question marks to feel good about Brown.

MVS is still a weekly boom or bust WR3 option, and given this favorable matchup, it’s not crazy to have him in your lineups. If he’s out, Allen Lazard would see a huge boost in potential value coming from one of his best games of the season.
