When talking big-game quarterbacks, the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers probably wouldn’t get benched in favor of the Vikings’ Kirk Cousins. No offense to Mr. Cousins, who’s having a solid if unspectacular season in Minnesota. He just doesn’t have Rodgers’ history.
But fantasy football is a little different from the NFL. And in NFL Week 15 the Vikings match up with a suspect Miami Dolphins defense, while the Packers find themselves facing the feared Chicago Bears.
Dave Richard and Heath Cummings at CBSSports.com join us again to suggest starts and sits at the skill positions. And they are recommending starting Cousins and sitting Rodgers. Who else should be kept in or out of the lineup in your fantasy playoff matchup? Watch the video above for the best fantasy starts and sits for this week.
