QBChad Henne

Chad Henne

190 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs

Henne threw for 185 yards and a pair of interceptions against the Jets in Week 14. In the four games prior, Henne had eight touchdown passes and three interceptions. It'll be another poor day against his former team.

RBMontell Owens

Montell Owens

70 rush yards, rush TD, 2 rec, 14 rec yards

Owens rushed 14 times for 91 yards and a touchdown against the Jets in Week 14. With Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashard Jennings sidelined, Owens should be a good pickup for Week 15 against the Dolphins, too.

RBRichard Murphy

Richard Murphy

24 rush yards

Due to injuries, the Jaguars were forced to bring up Murphy from their practice squad against the Jets in Week 14. He finished with four carries for 19 yards and was the team's second-leading rusher. He's not worth grabbing, though.

WRJustin Blackmon

Justin Blackmon

7 rec, 85 yards, rec TD

Blackmon caught a game-high six passes for 57 yards against the Jets in Week 14. He was targeted 12 times by quarterback Chad Henne and he should receive a lot of attention in Week 15 at Miami as well. He's surrounded by subpar talent because of injuries, but he's worth a look as a WR2/3 if Cecil Shorts (concussion) is out again.

WRJordan Shipley

Jordan Shipley

4 rec, 45 yards

Shipley caught five passes for 55 yards against the Jets in Week 14. With Cecil Shorts (concussion) sidelined, Shipley saw more targets. If Shorts remains out, Shipley could have a similar game against Miami.

TEMarcedes Lewis

Marcedes Lewis

2 rec, 24 yards

Lewis caught just one pass for four yards against the Jets Sunday. With so many starters sidelined for Jacksonville, you'd think Lewis' numbers would have climbed. That wasn't the case –- and he should be avoided for now in most fantasy formats.

KJosh Scobee

Josh Scobee

2 PATs, FG

Scobee made a 31-yard field goal and two extra points against the Jets in Week 14. His miss was a 55-yarder, so that's excusable. Still, he has just seven field goals in his past five games, so look elsewhere in Week 15.

DEFENSE

INT, Sack

The Jaguars had one sack and two forced fumbles against the Jets in Week 14, and they allowed 17 points and only 270 total offensive yards. Even so, the Dolphins pose a tougher task for the Jaguars, so the safe play is to use another defense this week.

QBRyan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill

205 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Tannehill threw for 150 yards and a touchdown at San Francisco in Week 14. He hasn't thrown for more than one touchdown since Week 6. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere, despite the good matchup.

RBReggie Bush

Reggie Bush

75 rush yards, rush TD, 4 rec, 40 rec yards

Bush had 14 carries for 65 yards and five catches for 38 yards at San Francisco in Week 14. He performed well against a very tough defense and things should get better in Week 15 against Jacksonville.

RBDaniel Thomas

Daniel Thomas

30 rush yards, 1 rec, 10 rec yards

Thomas had just two carries for three yards at San Francisco in Week 14. He had been seeing more carries recently and should return to form in Week 15 against the Jaguars. He's still not worth starting, however.

WRBrian Hartline

Brian Hartline

5 rec, 84 yards, rec TD

Despite seeing eight targets, Hartline caught just two passes for 34 yards at San Francisco in Week 14. He should reach the 1,000-yards-receiving mark against the Jaguars in Week 15.

WRDavone Bess

Davone Bess

6 rec, 55 yards

Bess caught five passes for 50 yards at San Francisco in Week 14 and was targeted eight times. He has been up and down in recent weeks, but this output is about what you should expect.

TEAnthony Fasano

Anthony Fasano

2 rec, 15 yards

Fasano caught two passes for nine yards and a touchdown at San Francisco in Week 14. He was targeted twice as many times (four) as tight end Charles Clay, but neither should be counted on in fantasy right now.

KDan Carpenter

Dan Carpenter

2 PATs, 2 FGs

Carpenter kicked two field goals and one extra point at San Francisco in Week 14. One of those field goals was 53 yards, which was his first made 50-yarder this season. He has six field goals in the past three games, which makes him worth a look in Week 15.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 4 Sacks

Miami allowed 27 points to the 49ers, while registering four sacks against a rookie quarterback in Week 14. The Dolphins couldn’t force any turnovers, however. That should change against the injury-riddled Jaguars in Week 15, making the Dolphins a decent fantasy starter in the playoffs.
