Not only is Week 15 upon us but so are the fantasy football playoffs. With that in mind, plug these four players into your lineups to give yourself the best chance to advance to the next round in your league.

With managers competing for a fantasy football championship, the margin for error is much smaller. It is win or go home from now on, further amplifying the importance of every manager's lineup decision. One move can define your season and be the difference between living to see another day or having your season cut short.

Here is one QB, RB, WR, and TE who are primed for huge Week 15 fantasy football performances

QB: Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

The clash between the Rams and the Commanders is a meeting between two teams trending in different directions, with the Rams winning three of their last four games and the Commanders losing four straight. Now, Matthew Stafford and the red-hot Rams offense will host the Commanders, who have struggled mightily to defend against the pass this season.

The Commanders rank last in the NFL in opponent passing yards allowed per game (266.0), last in opponent points per game (30.4), last in opponent yards per completion (12.0), and last in opponent passing touchdowns per game (2.3). In other words, the Commanders are the worst passing defense in the NFL and now face Stafford and a Rams offense that has been firing on all cylinders.

Over their past three games, the Rams offense has averaged 34.7 points per game, ] the third-most in the NFL in that span. During that stretch, Stafford has averaged 267.3 passing yards per game and thrown 10 touchdown passes, with at least three touchdown passes in all three games

Stafford and the offense getting hot has coincided with the return of running back Kyren Williams, as exemplified by the former’s splits with/without the latter on the field this season.

Per FanDuel Sportsbook, the Rams have the second-highest implied total of the week (28.5), suggesting Stafford and the offense are in for a big day. Start Stafford and the rest of your Rams players with confidence in Week 15.
