Here are some wide receivers that you should target for your main slate fantasy football lineup this Sunday!
The two top-priced wide receivers on Draftkings are as follows:
The wide receiver position is my favorite portion of the slate this weekend! There are so many good value plays out there — here are a few!
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson has been stout over the last few weeks. In week 15, he has a matchup against a Minnesota Vikings defense that has struggled against defending the pass — especially on deep throws.
Last week Robinson put up 30.3 points on Draftkings and should continue to get right around 10 targets per game. He’s playing 75% plus of the offensive snaps. The opportunity is there in Week 15.
Man, oh man. I love me some Brandon Aiyuk. The man has been very consistent and a great value at his price as of late. In Week 15, his price does start to reflect his performances on the field as it jumps from $5.4k to $6.3k on Draftkings; however, that’s still a good value.
Since Week 7 (when healthy), Aiyuk has produced scores of 20.5, 23.1, 19.7, 20.5, and 24.9. He has double-digit targets in three of his last four games, including 16 last week! That’s sort of ridiculous, in the best kind of fantasy football way, of course.
He’s also playing over 90% of snaps for the San Francisco 49ers’ offense. This week, the 49ers did designate tight end George Kittle eligible to return from the injured reserve list, but he will not play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
Even if Kittle were on the field, I don’t think it hurts Aiyuk’s value to the point that we don’t use him. Aiyuk is going to win owners championships over the next couple of weeks, and you can feel confident using him in daily fantasy sports this week, to help you win some dough!
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton started this year off poorly. It’s no secret. Over the last few weeks, however, things have taken a turn in the right direction. Since his Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans, Hilton’s Draftkings scores have been as follows: 18.1, 28, and 25.6.
Here is what really has me excited for Week 15 — Hilton is facing the Houston Texans. The Colts’ speedy wideout has faced the Texans 17 times in his career. His statistics throughout those matchups are incredible. 98 catches, 1,732 yards receiving, and 11 touchdowns. When Hilton faced Houston just two weeks ago, he had 11 targets, hauling in eight for 110 yards and a score.
Hilton has the number of the Texans, and there’s no reason to think he won’t perform solidly in their matchup this week.
Put him in your lineups at $5.5k.

Chad Hansen has arrived, basically out of nowhere over the last two weeks for the Houston Texans, making the most out of the opportunity provided. Will Fuller V is serving a six-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s P.E.D policy, and Brandin Cooks is nursing an injury; however, he is expected to return this week.
Hansen has had seven targets in each of the last two weeks, catching five of them in Week 13 and all seven last week. He has yet to catch a touchdown but did eclipse 100 receiving yards in Week 13.
It’s hard to predict the exact impact the return of Cooks will have, or if he’s even at 100%. It’s worth having some exposure to Hansen at $4.2k if you’re looking for some value.
Let me start out by introducing you to Lynn Bowden Jr., former quarterback of the Kentucky Wildcats. If you’re like me and didn’t know much about the utility player before this year, here is a good back story from Bleacher Report’s Adam Kramer.
Now on the scene with both a running back and wide receiver designation, Bowden has an opportunity to prove himself at the professional level for the Miami Dolphins.
In Week 14, Bowden Jr. even had his number called twice on passing plays.
However, what was impressive for fantasy football was his seven receptions off of nine targets for 82 yards last week. He’s worth a flier in your daily fantasy football lineups, as he should see decent opportunity with the injuries to his fellow Dolphins.
