Falcons vs. Jaguars: Fantasy options for Week 15

Who should you sit and start this Sunday when the Falcons and Jaguars play?

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Start

QB Blake Bortles

He's on fire of late, especially for fantasy purposes, and should have another nice day

RB Devonta Freeman

The Jaguars' run defense is not incredibly stout, unlike the Buccaneers and Panthers, and that gives Freeman an opportunity to get rolling for the first time in weeks.

WR Julio Jones

The most dynamic wide receiver in the NFL still puts up quality stat lines on a weekly basis, and he doesn't have Josh Norman to contend with this week.

WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns

Both of these Jacksonville receivers are truly terrific young players, and while Desmond Trufant can hold one in check, the other can certainly handle Robert Alford, Phillip Adams, and/or Jalen Collins. Expect both to have solid weeks.

TE Julius Thomas

I'm very willing to bet that he'll score.

Sit

QB Matt Ryan

He just hasn't put up an above average fantasy line in weeks, and you're in your fantasy playoffs, so you can't afford to gamble.

RB Denard Robinson

He'll likely draw the start with T.J. Yeldon out, but he's not a good bet to do much, even against an eroding Falcons run defense.

Both Defenses

The Jaguars aren't quite good enough defensively to trust against Atlanta's offense, which is probably going to have a decent game one of these weeks, and the Falcons' defense doesn't look like a unit capable of shutting down the Jaguars' suddenly high-powered offense, either.
