The fantasy football season is now in full tilt for season-long leagues — an exciting time of year!

Perhaps, however, your fantasy football season didn’t go quite as you had expected it would, or you fell victim to the Dak Prescott, Christian McCaffrey, or George Kittle injuries (in my case, all three in one league.) If your season is over, or if it’s not but you still enjoy some DFS, we’re going to run through the main, 11-game Sunday slate to see who to pay up for and where to find those bargains needed to put together a winning lineup!

Here’s a look at some quarterbacks to target for your main slate fantasy football lineup for Week 15!

The four top-priced quarterbacks on Draftkings for Week 15 are as follows:

  1. Patrick Mahomes (@ NO) – $7,900
  2. Lamar Jackson (v.s JAX)- $7,500
  3. Russell Wilson (@WASH)- $7,300
  4. Kyler Murray (v.s. PHI) – $7,000

If you choose to pay up for DraftKings cash contests, I totally understand; however, for tournaments, I’ll be looking down around the $6k range for some value and something that I love –rushing touchdown upside!

In the $6k range, there are a few names that jump out to me.

New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees. 1. player. 15. . QB - $5,900

The New Orleans Saints take on the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, and in what can justifiably be called a “shocker,” Head Coach Sean Payton declared Friday that future Hall of Famer Drew Brees will start the game.

Obviously, we know how good Brees is, but I’ve included him here in case you are not yet aware that he will indeed play, and also to highlight the fact that he is priced at just $5.9k and is an excellent start in your daily fantasy sports lineup!

2. player. 54. . QB - $5,900. Philadelphia Eagles. Jalen Hurts

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts started his first game last week, against the aforementioned Saints. His stats were not overly impressive through the air, going 17-30 for 167 yards, with a 56.7% completion percentage.

What was impressive, however, were his rushing totals. Hurts carried the ball 18 times, totaling 106 yards on the ground and averaging 5.8 YPC. He also lost a fumble.

The rushing upside is, again, great. He may not total 18 rushes, but he has to be in play if he can get 10-15. Add the weapons he has with the Eagles, and you get your upside with a solid floor.
