Start or Sit Week 15: Wide Receivers brought to you by Overtime Heroics. Fantasy players that are clear starters will not be included in this article, such as Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, and Michael Thomas. All the information below will be based on a Point Per Reception (PPR) scoring format.

Start of the Week: Jarvis Landry vs Arizona Cardinals

Jarvis Landry has recorded at least five catches, 75 yards, or a touchdown in his last seven games. He will face a Cardinals defense that gives up the second-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Landry has emerged as Baker Mayfield’s go-to target in Cleveland. Odell Beckham Jr will draw the number-one matchup each week, leaving Landry to take advantage of any mismatch. He should put up nice fantasy numbers in a must-win game for the Browns.

Other Good Starts:

  • DeVante Parker (Questionable) vs New York Giants
  • Darius Slayton vs Miami Dolphins
  • A.J. Brown vs Houston Texans

Sit of the Week: Tyler Boyd vs New England Patriots

Boyd will be the unfortunate recipient of Stephon Gilmore this week. Gilmore is one of the best corners in the league and plays a huge role in helping the Patriots to the number-one pass defense in the NFL. Throw in the fact that New England has also admitted to videotaping the Bengals play-calls from the sideline, and you have a must-fade this week. The only positive I can come up with for this matchup, is that Cincinnati is playing at home. However, not traveling to Gilette Stadium won’t be enough, as New England is expected to dominate from the opening kickoff.

Other Good Sits:

  • Stefon Diggs vs Los Angeles Chargers
  • Tyler Lockett vs Carolina Panthers
  • Curtis Samuel vs Seattle Seahawks
