Since we're playing in GPP tournaments, we’re rolling the dice and building our Week 15 FanDuel tournament lineup around Texans’ rookie quarterback Davis Mills. He’s low priced at $6,800, and the savings allow us to put together a NFL DFS lineup that we feel excited about from top to bottom. This lineup obviously features plenty of boom-or-bust prospects, but we're shooting for the moon here and sole possession of first place.

Before we get into this week's lineups, here are the basic rules for FanDuel contests. Scoring is pretty standard, with the only notable settings being four-point passing TDs and half-point PPR.

FanDuel Picks Week 15: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday main slate, $60,000 budget, no more than four players from one team

UPDATE: This lineup has been significantly reworked since its original publishing because of the loss of players from the Seahawks-Rams and Washington-Philadelphia games.

QB Davis Mills, Texans @ Jaguars ($6,800). Mills has played better in recent weeks, scoring at least 18.0 FanDuel points in three of his past six contests. The Jaguars are one of the worst defenses in the league, so Mills will be in a good position to deliver a decent fantasy effort and put the lineup in position to finish in the green.

RB Joe Mixon, Bengals @ Broncos ($8,300). Mixon is in the midst of a brief slump, but we know he has 30-plus touches within his range of outcomes. He’s only two games removed from 30.3 FD points and a four-game stretch of eclipsing the 23.0-point barrier in five of six.

RB James Robinson, Jaguars vs. Texans ($6,300). The Jags are a mess right now, but this is one of those "addition by subtraction" situations. Everyone in the world except for Urban Meyer knows Robinson is a high-quality back. At the very least, Robinson is likely to be deployed properly in the wake of Meyer’s canning.

WR Christian Kirk, Cardinals ($6,000). Kirk has had a pretty solid season, he just doesn’t have a string of dominant FanDuel performances to show for it. He leads the Cardinals in targets, and with DeAndre Hopkins out for the remainder of the regular season, more chances will be headed Kirk’s direction.

WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

WR DeVante Parker, Dolphins vs. Jets ($5,800).  With high-volume pass-catcher Jaylen Waddle (reserve/COVID) out, Parker should soak up a lot of his targets. That's enough to get him in this lineup, especially at this price. It doesn't hurt that the Jets are a leaky defense to WRs in addition to be the leakiest against RBs. 

WR Nico Collins, Texans @ Jaguars ($5,300). The Texans are leaning into their youth movement, and Collins appears to be part of that equation. He saw 10 targets last week, and we’re going to bet on him receiving another hefty piece of the pie in a game between two bad teams who will be hungry for a win.

WEEK 15 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

TE George Kittle, 49ers vs. Falcons ($7,800). Kittle is on fire right now, so he’s likely to be a popular selection on Sunday, but sometimes it’s best to employ the “KISS” method and accept the easy answers. He’s scored 62.7 FD points on 27 targets over the past two weeks, and he should be able to find more success against a poor Falcons defense.

FLEX (WR) Davante Adams, Packers @ Ravens ($8,500). Adams is sitting at the head of the Packers’ passing game with a 29.9-percent target share. The Ravens are hurting in the secondary, so we like the odds of them struggling to contain the All-Pro receiver.

DEF Dolphins @ Jets ($5,000). The Dolphins have been on a run over the past five, scoring 17-plus points in three and holding opponents to 10 or fewer in four. The Jets are an obvious team to pick on, but there will be a lot of DFS players unwilling to pay top dollar for a defense.
