Primetime DFS Slate Breakdown: Week 15

The Week 15 Primetime slate has an anticipated defensive slugfest on Sunday Night between the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers and then an anticipated blowout on Monday Night when Indianapolis Colts visits the New Orleans Saints. Can the Colts make the game competitive enough to make the MNF game the smash spot for this slate? We break down that and more for these two games for the Primetime slates on DraftKings and FanDuel to help you find the winning edge for your DFS lineups.

Let's get to the break down of the slate.

Injuries

Buffalo comes in with a clean bill of health, but the Steelers have a few players with question marks. Vance McDonald and JuJu Smith-Schuster have already been ruled out keeping the likes of Nick Vannett, Diontae Johnson, and James Washington in play with increased roles. James Conner is questionable and we are projecting him to play.

For the Monday Night game, the status of T.Y. Hilton is the only news to keep an eye on. If he plays, it's a boost for the Colts offense in general but a downgrade for the likes of Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson. We are currently projecting him to sit, but he is a game-time decision so this is news you'll need to keep an eye on. I don't mind putting Hilton in the flex (along with at least one other player from the game so there is salary maneuverability) and making a decision come Monday Night.
