It’s now Week 15 of the fantasy football season and things are starting to wind down. For most leagues this is semifinals week and hopefully you still have a team or two fighting for a championship.

Other than David Johnson and Le’Veon Bell (who are 1-2 once again in the rankings), Week 15 offers several other running backs with juicy matchups. Just look at LeSean McCoy taking on Cleveland and Devonta Freeman welcoming the lowly 49ers to town.

And what about the two young Kenneths? Are either Kenneth Dixon or Kenneth Farrow a viable starting option this week?
