With COVID-19, injuries and other information playing major roles from week to week in the NFL landscape, secondary and tertiary starting options will continue to enter your fantasy football starting lineups as the season grinds on. Riskier plays can be rewarded if discovered correctly and complacent managers rely too heavily on drafted players. Trust your instincts — coupled with solid PFF metrics, of course.

So, let's get to it: the Week 15 edition of fantasy football start ’em or sit ’em.

QB TUA TAGOVAILOA, MIAMI DOLPHINS

Believe it or not, Tagovailoa has been one of the most efficient passers in the league lately. Since Week 10, he ranks sixth in passer rating, second in passing grade, second in passing accuracy, fifth in expected points added (EPA) per play and second in completion percentage over expectation. He’s averaged 35 passing attempts, 249 passing yards and 1.7 touchdowns across his past three games.

The Miami Dolphins get the New York Jets at home this week, with the Dolphins currently favored by 9.5 points. The Jets allow the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. With Devante Parker back in the receiving corps, Tua and the Dolphins will look to streak their way into playoff consideration.

RB JAMES ROBINSON, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

Well, last week’s storyline with James Robinson was … weird. Hopefully, it ends up just a blip on the radar and the squeaky wheel gets the grease. If Robinson returns to his typical workload against a weak Houston Texans unit, he has a chance to shine. He averaged 14.8 touches per game leading up to last week’s fiasco.
