Fantasy Football Report - Week 15

Drydock League Finals here we come. In what was just a bizarre week in the NFL (Packers lose, Colts win, Giants lose to the Redskins, Chargers hammer the Ravens, 49ers beat the Steelers, etc.), we got 203 rushing yards from Reggie Bush, 3 touchdowns from LeSean McCoy, and are headed to the Championship Game for the first time since 2004.

I'm not going to lie, I caught a lot of breaks this past week. Nate Washington, Julio Jones and Santana Moss all found their way into the end zone yet again, and on the other side both Chris Johnson and Wes Welker were pretty quiet. Despite getting 26 points from Tony Romo, my opponent only put up 108.5 allowing us to cruise to a comfortable 30 point win. We're going to need similar good fortune this week as I take on fellow 11-year Drydock League veteran, Cumbo. The regular season champ after finishing 11-2, Cumbo is about an 8 point favorite according to the projected results. We'll see if he can finally get the title that's been eluding him for so many years.

Here's a look at Week 15's Top Performers:

QB - The Minnesota Vikings were no match for Drew Brees and the Saints this weekend. Brees, who is on pace to break Dan Marino's 27 year old record for single season passing yards, completed 32 of 40 passes for 412 yards and 5 touchdowns in just a little over 3 quarters.  Fantasy Points: 40

WR -  Calvin Johnson hauled in 9 passes for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns including the game winner in the final minute as Detroit edged the Raiders 28-27. Fantasy Points: 34

RB - Taking advantage of his increased playing time following the season ending injury to Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller tallied 167 yards from scrimmage, caught 9 passes and scored a pair of touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) in Buffalo's loss to Miami. Fantasy Points: 28

TE - With all the talk about Rob Gronkowski, people sometimes forget that there's another really good tight end on the Patriots right now. Aaron Hernandez caught 9 passes for 129 yards and a touchdown in New England's win over Denver. Fantasy Points: 24

K - Ryan Succop kicked 4 field goals as the Chiefs dealt the Packers their first loss of the season. Fantasy Points: 14
