Week 15 Review

In Week 15, Zay Jones was the skeleton key, headlining most of the top lineups in the Milly Maker. Unfortunately, he was not on the buy-low candidates list. Instead, both buy-low high-scorers were off the main slate, as Jaylen Waddle put up 20.4 points (WR10) in one of Saturday's games while Jahan Dotson earned WR9 numbers on Sunday night.

Week 15 presented quite a few disappointments. Chris Olave only earned four targets, his worst outing since Week 1. Gabriel Davis was a ghost for most of Week 15. And the Cleveland Browns offense continues to look lost. In terms of total volume, Amari Cooper saw just six targets and 40 air yards, but that was good for a 0.53 weighted opportunity rating (WOPR) — by far the most on the Browns. He’s back on the list this week.

Here are the full results from Week 15, with players who beat their consensus projections in bold:
