- For many of us, the fantasy playoffs are here. They've arrived. For the rest of us, well, it's still winning time. We cannot accept losses this time of year. We've got a few very early pick up options heading into week 15. I think we have to begin in Cincinnati, where Jake Browning did it again. Another win. How about 624 passing yards and 5 combined TDs over his last two weeks?

Browning certainly looks the part right now. He's completed over 80% of his throws over these last two games. He has the Vikings up next. So there's nothing really to be worried about on that front.

If you have quarterback needs in your fantasy life, maybe trust the guy who gets to throw the ball to Ja'Marr Chase, to Tee Higgins. He's in a great spot. He's available in about 70% of Yahoo leagues right now.

Also let's take note of another big line from yet another Bengal, Chase Brown, rookie out of Illinois. He was a menace in the Big Ten back in the day. And he has been excellent over the past two weeks since returning from injury.

Brown had 105 total yards on a long score against the Colts. Certainly looks the part. He's explosive. He's shifty. He needs to be rostered and he's a viable deep league flex right now.

At receiver, one final name, a familiar name, Odell Beckham. He caught four balls for 97 yards on 10 targets and had a long score against the Rams. He's got three touchdowns in his last five games.

OBJ has a great match-up coming up with Jacksonville. That's a defense of course that's been cooked in each of their last two games. If you have a need at receiver, Beckham can definitely help.
