The way the Week 15 fantasy WR rankings end up is likely going to be very different from how they initially look. Numerous injuries, including several that occurred on Sunday of Week 14 (Mike Evans, DeVante Parker, Calvin Ridley, DJ Chark) could have a big effect, and at least a couple owners still alive in your fantasy playoffs might be streaming some newfound sleepers who are not exactly trustworthy at this time of year. 

But we know the right matchups can make almost receiver a fantasy playoff hero. A.J. Brown played that role in Week 14, and he’ll have another favorable matchup in Week 15 (vs. Texans). Dede Westbrook (@ Raiders) is in play even if Chark (ankle) is active, and if Chark is out, Chris Conley becomes interesting, too. Breshad Perriman (@ Lions) isn’t a bad flier if Mike Evans (hamstring) is out, and Allen Hurns (@ Giants) makes for a nice sleeper even if Parker (concussion) plays. Kendrick Bourne and the rest of the 49ers should be able to keep putting up numbers against the Falcons, and the same goes for a trio of Colts lotto tickets against the Saints.

There are some tough matchups to worry about, including Robby Anderson and other Jets against the Ravens, all Falcons secondary receivers against the 49ers, Tyler Boyd and other Bengals against the Patriots, and even Adam Thielen (hamstring) if he returns against the Chargers. 

Starts and sits always depend on your roster, and given the carnage at WR in recent weeks, you might be forced to play whatever live bodies you have. But if you’re in a bind, don’t be afraid to be active on the waiver wire. Injuries create opportunities, and there are always matchups to exploit. 

Reminder: Check back for rankings updates throughout the week.
