nfl-week-15-2012-fantasy-football-rosterWe continue to participate in weekly fantasy football salary leagues at various sites throughout the 2012 season, and Week 15 takes us back to DraftKings.

This site uses a $50,000 salary cap and the roster consists of 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX, 1 K and 1 DST. As usual, we will fill the FLEX position with a running back, making it three running backs for us.

The site gives only four points for touchdown passes and one full point per reception, making quarterbacks less valuable and not worth spending big money on. At least not normally! This is a unique week however with David Wilson listed for $4,000. We are banking on the most recent reports that Ahmad Bradshaw is most likely out, and taking Wilson actually allowed us to get an elite QB without sacrificing elsewhere.

Here is my Draft Kings lineup for the $1000 Week 15 Freeroll. The Winner receives an automatic bid to Week 16’s 250K Main Event!

QB – Peyton Manning, DEN ($8,000) This is who drafting Wilson allowed us to afford under center. Peyton is facing an aging Baltimore defense that allowed 276 passing yards to 38-year-old Charlie Batch two weeks ago and then 268 passing yards to the Washington quarterbacks.

RB – Adrian Peterson, MIN ($9,000) The leading rusher in the NFL by a wide margin remained indefensible vs. the Bears rushing for 154 yards and two touchdowns and he is shooting for Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record.

DK ME-1RB – Doug Martin, TB ($6,700) Martin is running up against a New Orleans defense that ranks dead last in the NFL in rushing defense at 152.1 yards per game on an ugly 5.0 YPC, and it just allowed 100 yards on just 13 carries to David Wilson (that name again).

WR – Vincent Jackson, TB ($6,800) The Saints are not really much better against the pass ranking 30th at 285.2 yards per game on a league-worst 7.9 YPA, and Jackson had 216 receiving yards in the Bucs’ first meeting with New Orleans.

WR – Demaryius Thomas, DEN ($6,700) Thomas gives us the QB/WR hook-up with Manning in the game that just might decide the second seed in the AFC. Manning has always dominated better Baltimore defense than this one so Thomas should get many targets.

TE – Kyle Rudolph, MIN ($3,700) With Percy Harvin out for the year, the tight end Rudolph is now Minnesota’s most reliable receiving option, giving him great value at this cheap price. He is second on the team behind Harvin in receiving yards and has eight touchdowns.

FLEX – David Wilson, NYG ($4,000) Wilson is the key to this week’s entre draft as there is now speculation that Bradshaw might not even make the trip the Atlanta with the Giants.

K – Shayne Graham, HOU ($2,500) We never spend much on kickers or defenses, and do not expect the Texans to be held to 14 points again going up against a mediocre Indianapolis defense that is not even as good as its modest numbers due to facing a weak schedule.

DST – Detroit Lions ($2,500) The Lions get the dream matchup you always want to see for a very cheap defense like this as they get to face inept rookie Ryan Lindley (or turnover-machine John Skelton) and the Arizona Cardinals.

Total Salary: $49,900
