Mastersballer Zach Steinhorn proved his acumen in Week 14 of Fout Wars, taking home first place honors for the third time (Zach also came in first Weeks 2 and 9) with 173.32 points, largely fueled by the amazing performance of LeVeon Bell, who bagged nearly one-third of Zach's points with a 54.8 day.
Zach also rostered T.Y. Hilton (29.5), Lamar Miller (22.2), and Jordy Nelson (22.1) to push the finish ahead of second-placer Jake Ciely, who also was able to exploit Bell's big day with 160.22, meaning Bell really did collect a third of the totals. Davante Adams (23.4) was able to contribute to Ciely's finish, while The Jeff Boggis finished third behind Jeremy Hill (26.2) and Tyler Eifert (21.8) to grab the bronze.
My squad finished a pathetic 11th, largely thanks to the ineffective Arizona offense.

Week 15 DFS Plays
Tyrod Taylor ($5700): Last week, I went on the cheap thinking Colin Kaepernick would come up big against the Jets. So much for logic. But this week, Taylor against the poor Browns at home is a pretty safe bet at this juncture, Rex Ryan or no Rex Ryan.
Bilal Powell ($5600): Powell's workload has indeed been increasing, and the Jets did kind of get it together second-half against the Niners Sunday. Powell will probably figure big against the division rival Dolphins at home. Of course, delivering is the key, but I will bet he can.
Malcolm Mitchell ($4700): Scores four straight weeks and the confidence of Tom Brady suggests this guy is worth exploiting until either the price goes through the roof, or he fails. I suspect the former before the latter.
Redskins ($2600): The Skins get to take on the erratic Panthers and their 26th ranked defense at home. I suspect it will be cold, and I suspect the Skins will control the tempo at their house.
Ladarius Green ($3700): Big Ben and his passing game should do ok taking on the Bengals and I suspect the Steelers, who are playing very good ball the last month, will dominate.
