Javonte Williams vs. Lions

Javonte Williams takes on the Lions this week and Williams just does not seem to produce in tougher matchups. When he played the Vikings and the Browns in weeks 11 and 12 he finished with 7.30 and 10.10 fantasy points. He just cannot be trusted in this matchup against the Lions.

The Lions are the 6th best against the run and are only allowing an average of 61.69 rushing yards a game and .62 touchdowns a game. In the receiving game, the Lions allow 3.69 receptions, 35.77 receiving yards and have not allowed a receiving touchdown to running backs all year. The Lions are allowing an average of 12.54 fantasy points to running backs this year. It is hard to trust Javonte in week 15.

Packers running backs vs. Buccaneers

The Packers running backs have been one of the worst for fantasy football this year. Aaron Jones has been often injured this year and A.J. Dillon hasn't done much in Jones' absence. If Aaron Jones does play this week it makes this an even tougher decision for the Dillon owners. It is just not a good situation all around for the Packers running backs in week 15.

The Buccaneers ranked as the 10th best against the run and have allowed an average of 84 rushing yards and .38 rushing touchdowns a game. In the receiving game, they allow an average of 4.31 receptions, 29.15 receiving yards, and .15 receiving touchdowns a game to running backs. Only giving up 13.31 fantasy points to running backs a week. Not much to go around especially if both Dillon and Jones are getting touches in week 15.
