(CBS Local)- It’s semifinals week. If you’re still in the hunt for the fantasy title, congrats on making it this far! But, you don’t want the fun to stop now. The train has to keep on rolling into the championship next week. Here to help you do that are CBSSports.com fantasy football experts Jamey Eisenberg and Heath Cummings of Fantasy Football Today.
The guys have taken a look at the Week 15 matchups and picked out three guys that you should think about starting and three you might want to sit down this week. For starters, Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins who draws a great matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“They (the Jaguars) have been miserable the last three weeks against opposing running backs. Hey, they’ve been miserable all season. And Dobbins has been on fire. He’s scored a touchdown in each of his last three games,” said Eisenberg. “I think he’s going to have an opportunity here to be fantastic once again.”
Also in the “start” group among the running backs is Carolina Panthers back Mike Davis, Washington back J.D. McKissic and San Francisco 49ers back Jeff Wilson. The Panthers and Davis draw a Green Bay team that has had issues stopping the run at times while WFT has a home matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. And Wilson benefits from the opportunity to face the Dallas Cowboys who have been bad all season against opponent run games.
On the other side of the ledger, Heath is advising that you stay away from the Bills running back situation in general and Devin Singletary in particular this week.
“The nice thing is if you don’t like the Bills running back situation, just wait a week, it will change,” said Cummings. “Devin Singletary had back-to-back games of at least 80 total yards, Zack Moss out of the picture until last week and then Zack Moss was the leading back. You can’t trust any Bills running backs.”
