Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 15: Justin Hunter promising but risky play

The rookie has shown some flashes this season, but can he be trusted for the fantasy playoffs?

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter has been slowly seeing more playing time as the season progresses. He's shown some legitimate playmaking ability as a rookie, but has been extremely boom-or-bust. Hunter seemed to have a breakout game in Week 12, grabbing 109 yards and a touchdown on six catches. The next week he was held to one catch for 9 yards.

Hunter was hot again against the Broncos last week, hauling in four catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. He's now up to 18 catches for 354 yards and four touchdowns, showing off his deep-threat skills with 19.7 yards per catch.

Fantasy impact: It's hard to trust any receiver in Tennessee with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing the ball, and the Titans are going up against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals this week. That makes Hunter too risky to recommend starting for the fantasy playoffs, although he's a solid dynasty league prospect. Hunter and the Titans will have better matchups against the Jaguars and Texans to close out the season.
