Week 15 GPP Plays on DraftKings
Aaron Rodgers at Carolina $6,800
HEEE’SSS BAAACKKK!!!!! The legend returns on Sunday and is immediately in play in tournaments. He’s all but guaranteed to be low owned due to time off and injury concerns. Plus, he’ll be playing on the road in a tough matchup against Carolina. Still, this is Aaron Rodgers we’re talking about here. And anytime you can roster Rodgers at a low ownership percentage, it absolutely must be considered. Rodgers had thrown for 300+ yards or at least three TDs in every game this season before his injury. Too small of a sample size for you? Let’s zoom out and examine Rodgers’ 4,428 passing yards, 40 pass TDs, 369 rushing yards, and 4 rush TDs from a year ago over a larger sample size of 16 games. And even in a supposed “down year” for Rodgers in 2015, he still posted 3,821 passing yards, 31 pass TDs, 344 rushing yards, and 1 rush TD.
Cam Newton vs. Green Bay $6,400
This Packers at Panthers game just got a lot more exciting thanks to the return of the King, Aaron Rodgers. The Over/Under now sits at a healthy 47 points. With Rodgers likely putting more pressure on the Panthers’ offense, Cam now has a greater chance of hitting his ceiling in this one. And he gets to play at home against a Packers defense that ranks 12th worst in pass DVOA and that has allowed the ninth most passing yards this season.
