Week 15, aka Fantasy’s Final Four. Win, and secure your shot for history and glory. Lose, and you stoop into fantasy depression. Of course, the Fantasy Fullback Dive is here to pave the path of least resistance, and help you find fantasy paydirt. First, we cover must-know injury notes, including Spencer Ware, Tyreek Hill, the Chargers RBs, James Conner, the Ravens QBs, Carson Wentz, and a loaded Rapid Fire. Where does Damien Williams slide into the Week 15 Rankings? Would Justin Jackson be in line for Redemption? Do they rank above Jaylen Samuels?
Plus, as always, The Wolf gives you a positional rundown of the players he is Higher, Lower, and willing to take a Hail Mary on. Why are Tom Brady, Dalvin Cook, Doug Martin, Dante Pettis, and Cameron Brate all on The Wolf’s Start ‘Em list? Is he crazy for being lower on Big Ben Roethlisberger, Sony Michel, and Alshon Jeffery? And would you ever be willing to take a Hail Mary on Kenneth Dixon, Ito Smith, DaeSean Hamilton, Ian Thomas, or… *GASP* Derek Carr?
Last, we tackle our most loaded mail bag ever. Here The Wolf’s takes and rankings of countless of players to help you set your own lineups. There’s no stronger lead block than The Fantasy Fullback Dive, so follow us right into your Championship Game.

If so, The Wolf and Truth are here on our Fantasy Fullback Dive to help you pick up the pieces with every meaningful takeaway from a crazy Week 14.
Waiver Wire, Injuries, and DST streams make up the most actionable items for the rest of the season, and our agenda is stockpiled with them. Find out which underowned WRs, RBs, + a TE and QB should be rostered down the stretch.
Plus, we break down an often overlooked but absolutely essential late season Waiver Wire Strategy that may just push your team to stardom. We also discuss Playoff Heroes like Amari Cooper & Dak Prescott, George Kittle, and Derrick Henry, and whether or not you can trust them yet again in tougher Week 15 matchups.
Last, we explain why Courtland Sutton should be cut, but Justin Jackson NEEDS to be held, after both come off brutal duds. If you’re moving on to the Semis (or want to mess with the owners who have), you MUST listen to our Week 14 Stock Watch.
The Fantasy Playoffs are here! Don’t enter the battlefield without following the pulverizing audio blocks of The Fantasy Fullback Dive… unless you like an early exit. There’s tons of crucial injury news you NEED to here to prepare, including:

- The impact a returning Mitch Trubisky would have on Nagy’s aerial circus
As always, we help you through tough lineup decisions with both a jam packed mail bag, and our usual Higher, Lower, and Hail Mary segment. Why does The Wolf have Matt Ryan, Justin Jackson, Adam Humphries, and Jaylen Samuels well above the experts? How come Cam Newton, Lamar Miller, Kenny Golladay, and Trey Burton all fall on The Wolf’s “lower” list? And is The Wolf really going back to the well with Josh Allen and the Ravens RBs as Hail Mary’s? Can Dante Pettis, Bruce Ellington, and Tyrell Williams truly swing games out of the FLEX?
