community news, Fantasy Football: Terry McLaurin and Ian Thomas among sneaky starts for Week 15

You’ve made it another week. Congratulations! The path to a fantasy championship has just started and the journey is full of difficult decisions. After the superstars are locked in, it can be tough to figure out who else should finish out your lineup. Name value means nothing at this point in the season. Production is all that matters. So who are some under-the-radar names that can help you win this week? Here are our Week 13 sneaky starts.

QUARTERBACKS

Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers

This one may not be so sneaky after a huge four-touchdown performance last week, but he makes this list because he’s far more than a solid play if you don’t have a true superstar quarterback. He’s a Top 6 play this week and should be starting over big names like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Dak Prescott, Drew Brees and plenty of others. Garoppolo was mentioned in this week’s fantasy stock watch because he is the No. 7 overall fantasy quarterback with an average of 21.3 points per game since Week 9. He’s scored at least 18 fantasy points (the average threshold for QB1 territory) in four of his last six games, which included a trio of three-touchdown games. The Falcons give up the seventh-most fantasy points to QBs this season, allowing nearly 70% of opposing QBs to reach that 18-point mark. Start Garoppolo with confidence this week.

Thanks for watching!

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans

Like Garoppolo, it’s the confidence in which you should be starting Tannehill that landed him on this list. Remember all the big names above I said should sit in favor of the 49ers’ starting quarterback? They all apply here are well plus one more name, Garoppolo himself. Tannehill is a Top 5 quarterback play this week against a poor Houston secondary that gives up the third-most fantasy points to the QB position this season. I’ve gushed about Tannehill for weeks in various waiver wire and sneaky starts columns, but facts are facts. There is only one quarterback averaging more fantasy points per game than Tannehill (22.6) since he took over as the Titans’ starter in Week 7. That player is MVP-in-waiting Lamar Jackson. Using the 18-point threshold test from above, Tannehill has failed to meet that mark only once as a starter and has scored 23 points or more three times. Everything is lining up for another big Tannehill performance in Week 15. Don’t miss the bus because of name value.
