Week 15 Preview: Big injuries at the wrong time, and dreadful sits-starts for the semifinals
One of the best feelings ever is to know you’re going into the fantasy football playoffs with a completely healthy lineup. Unfortunately, the way Week 14 went, it’s hard to have a completely healthy team right now. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss all those injury losses and more in the latest fantasy football podcast.
The Philadelphia Eagles — who are trying to not only make the playoffs but beat out the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East crown — lost Alshon Jeffery to IR and Nelson Agholor’s status is up in the air for Week 15 against Washington. Now, their wide receiver corps is reduced to JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward Jr., someone named Robert Davis and ... who knows. Washington isn’t scot-free either, as Derrius Guice — who was showing off his potential in previous weeks — was placed on IR again with a sprained MCL. (2:00)
Two fantasy studs in Mike Evans and Marvin Jones were both lost for the season. Targets galore for Kenny Golladay and Chris Godwin, respectively, although fantasy managers should take note that Jameis Winston has been playing with a fracture in his hand. (8:40)
Next up, Liz and Matt discuss some of the worst players they’re being forced to start in the semifinals, along with some of the better players they might have no choice but to bench! (21:30)
Liz and Matt then look towards Week 15 and tell you the one thing you should look for in each game. (33:10)
