Fantasy Football Rankings, Week 15, 2021: Proven model says start Melvin Gordon, sit Russell Wilson


Knowing the advantageous Fantasy football matchups is key, and you can expect to see several members of the Los Angeles Rams high in the Week 15 Fantasy football rankings. That's because Los Angeles takes on the Seattle Seahawks, a team that is giving up 394.9 yards per game this season. That means players like quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Cooper Kupp could be among the top Week 15 Fantasy football picks.

A reliable set of Week 15 Fantasy football rankings can assist in your Fantasy football start-sit decisions. Before locking in any Week 15 Fantasy football picks, be sure to check out the Week 15 Fantasy football predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine's model beat human experts in Fantasy football for the past several seasons especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Saints quarterback Taysom Hill, ranking him as a top-10 player at his position. The result: Hill rushed for 73 yards and two touchdowns while also throwing for 175 yards. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.

Now, the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its Fantasy football rankings for Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season. Head to SportsLine now to see them.

Top Week 15 Fantasy football picks 

One player the model is high on this week: Broncos running back Melvin Gordon. The veteran tailback had a field day against the Lions last week, recording 111 rushing yards and two touchdowns in Denver's 38-10 victory. Gordon has now scored at least one touchdown in four of his last five games.

Gordon has also finished with at least 80 rushing yards in three of his last four outings and is expected to be heavily involved in Denver's game plan against the Bengals on Sunday. SportsLine's model ranks Gordon as a top-15 running back this week, making him a rock-solid RB2 option against Cincinnati.

And a massive shocker: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who's thrown for at least 230 yards and two touchdowns in each of his last three games, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 20 at his position. Wilson has turned it on in recent games, but he has an extremely tough matchup this week against the Los Angeles Rams

In his last start against the Rams, Wilson finished with just 158 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception. Plus, the Seahawks have failed to score more than 20 points against Los Angeles in their last five meetings against their NFC West rivals. With such a tough matchup on Sunday, Wilson is a player to consider putting on the bench in Week 15.
