Monday Night Insight Week 15 - 2021 Fantasy Football

Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears

Vikings Fantasy Insight

Kirk Cousins is the QB8 on the season, and is a great start this week against the Bears in the divisional matchup. I do expect Cousins to finish as a low end QB1 this week, and he needs to be started in 1QB and Superflex lineups unless you have a top five quarterback.

Alexander Mattison is OUT with Covid, and Dalvin Cook is good to go in Week 15. Start him with confidence that he’ll carry you to round two of the fantasy football playoffs.

Justin Jefferson is an elite start and has overall WR1 upside. Adam Thielen is the biggest question mark here because if he plays, you start him and sit all other fantasy pass catchers. If he is out, however, I’m starting K.J. Osborn and expecting a WR2 week. Tyler Conklin is a streaming option at tight end if Thielen plays and becomes a solid start if Adam is OUT.

I like the matchup for the Vikings D/ST but they are the 17th overall defense and just cut one of their top players in Bashaud Breeland. I’m staying away from them this week. Someone I’m not steering clear of is Greg Joseph, who’s ranked fifth among kickers. Start him with confidence.

Bears Fantasy Insight

Justin Fields is the definition of inconsistent, which isn’t what you want for the fantasy football playoffs. Sit him this week in all formats unless he’s your last option for your Superflex spot.

David Montgomery is 19th in the league at the running back position for points per game averaging 14.5. He’s obviously someone you want in your lineups as the Vikings defense is middle of the pack in rush defense. Damien Williams and Khalil Herbert must remain on your bench considering they can only be viable if Montgomery is ruled OUT.

Allen Robinson is on the Covid list which makes Darnell Mooney the only wideout that is startable for the Bears. Jimmy Graham is a bench play, while Cole Kmet has seen a consistent amount of targets to give him mid TE1 upside.

Sit the Bears D/ST and kicker Cairo Santos. Neither are options that will be of any help to win you a fantasy playoff game. In fact, they could be part of the reason you’d lose.
