Welcome into Week 15 of the 2021 season, and the latest in our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. I hope you’ve had a great season, and made the playoffs where you expected to. This week, the league seems like it’s been really rocked by COVID, so you I’m going to be updating this article throughout the coming days, so come back to check it out.
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Kirk Cousins @CHI
Cousins is having a great season. Even with Adam Thielen missing due to injury he had a good game last time out. A matchup against Chicago isn’t one to avoid, so where I have him he is sliding straight into my starting lineup.
Jimmy Garoppolo v ATL
You might read this and think that it’s due to the matchup. I won’t lie, it is partly due to playing the Falcons, but Garoppolo is worth considering in his own right. The 49ers offense has been efficient and effective, and as a result Garoppolo has a string of multiple TD performances. If you are streaming the position, you could do worse than Garoppolo this week.
Tua Tagovailoa v NYJ
The Miami offense might be forced to go via the air, after being hit hard by COVID in the past week. That makes Tua a better start than he would have been before. Fresh off the bye, the Dolphins match up against a Jets defense that just can’t stop offenses.
Jalen Hurts v WAS
More of a pump the brakes than anything. Hurts was hurt before the bye, and after a week of rest he isn’t 100% to play this week. He is trending in the right direction, but it’s going to need something significant for me to put him in my lineup. Hurts’ value comes from his legs, so having an ankle injury is more significant than it would be for a pocket-passer. Even in this great matchup, I’d look for better options.
Cam Newton @BUF
You probably don’t need me to tell you to sit Newton, but just incase don’t be in doubt. The QB position for Carolina has been a turnstile of players, and you can’t rely on him for your lineup this week.
