For this week's picks, I'm using the new Ask Max 1.0 Lineup Maximizer. This thing rocks. We're still accepting beta testers if you'd like to give it a try.

Let's get to the WEEK 15 Secret Stars

QB – Matt Ryan $7,500 vs WAS – Ryan is QB 14 on DraftKings this week and makes for an excellent "cheaper" option at the QB position. I'm not in the mood to "go for broke" this week with somebody like Flynn or Cousins who you can spend in the 5500 range but have the potential to get you a sub-10 point week. Ryan feels safe and has definite upside against a Redskin team that has allowed 6 Touchdowns the last three weeks to the likes of Kaepernick, Eli Manning and Alex Smith. This is a home game for the Falcons who need to desperately repair the fan base and go all out. A win would mean a lot to this team and his favorite target Roddy White seems to be back to full strength along with Tony Gonzalez who nearing the end of his illustrious career, has scored in two straight games. Ryan threw for 300+ against the Bills in Week 13 and tossed 2 Touchdowns against the Packers in Week 14. He's on a bit of a roll, and I'll be rolling the dice with Ryan this week. Also Considered: Cam Newton $7,900 vs NYJ – Why are all the QBs cheap this week? If you have an extra $400 to spend, this is the week to buy Cam Newton on the cheap against the Jets who can't stop anybody right now. Do not trust Jay Cutler in his first game back, you've been warned…

RB –Toby Gerhart $5,000 vs PHI – If Peterson doesn't play, and I don't think he will, how can your lineup not have Gerhart? He seems like a lock for 10-15 fantasy points with 20 point upside if he scores. Gerhart is averaging 7.9 YPC on limited snaps this season, but did well with his 15 carries last weekend in Baltimore. 15 carries 89 yards and TD. He showed a good amount of burst on the 41 yard carry. Also considered: Fred Jackson $5,000 at JAX - Great matchup and still leads Spiller in snaps significantly.

WR – Kenbrell Thompkins $3,000 vs MIA – Thompkins has been fighting a hip injury, but he looks much better in practice this wek. With Gronk out for the year, Brady will have to turn back to trusting his wide receiver group and with Brady, a big game is always possible. With Dobson still missing from practice with a foot injury, this means the receiving trio is down to Amendola, Edelman and Thompkins to get the lion's share of Brady's passing yards. Thompkins plays the X position and if healthy should play every snap. Don't forget, that Thompkins is a Miami native, so he's making his return trip home and will have family and friends in the stands. That has to count for something right? Also considered: Brandon LaFell $3,800 vs NYJ – The Jets can't stop anybody through the air. Did you see what McGloin did to em?

TE – Delanie Walker $4,000 vs ARI – Projected 13.5 fantasy points – At $296 salary per projected fantasy point, this is a steal. Everyone knows that Arizona allows the most fantasy points to the tight end position, so the fact that DK didn't raise this salary is a bit perplexing. From the sound of things, he should pass the concussion tests after sitting out Week 14. Prior to the injury, Walker saw 18 targets over the past two games, making him Fitzpatrick's favorite target. This is the week to trust the points allowed chart. Also considered: Charles Clay. $5,000 vs NE - $5,000 for 15.6 projected fantasy points puts him as the #2 value TE on the board.

PK – Adam Vinatieri $3,600 vs HOU - Give me the veteran who turns 41 in a few weeks, at home in a dome, in a big game. AskMax says he's the most valuable kicker on the board this week.

DST – Titans DST $2,700 vs ARI – Something tells me we're all sleeping on this team. They're at home, and everybody has the Broncos game fresh in their mind. Good, that means they won't be very popular this week. The Titans are barely better than average in sack rate, but Pro Football Focus credits them with 157 hurries this season -- one every 2.669 pass plays. Only the Chiefs and Seahawks are better. Look out Palmer, here come the Titans!

Let's do it. Win our Toolbox Week 16 contest and you automatically earn a seat in the Week 16 Millionaire Contest.
