Quarterback

Mike White, New York Jets

Despite taking two of the most brutal hits this season, Mike White is considered day-to-day and is expected to play in Week 15 against the Lions.

White has been surprisingly fantastic as the Jets' starting quarterback, averaging 22.2 fantasy points, 317.3 yards, and one touchdown per game. It also bodes well for White that he has some great young weapons in Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore and a perfect matchup against the Lions.

The Lions allow the most fantasy points to quarterbacks, allowing 23.3 fantasy points, 276.8 yards, and 1.6 touchdowns per game.

Running Backs

Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs

Despite Jerrick McKinnon having a huge game last week, Isiah Pacheco has stepped up as the Chiefs' running back. He is averaging 16 carries, 78.8 yards, and 0.4 touchdowns in his previous five games. In Week 15, Pacheco has a terrific matchup against the atrocious Texans' defense.

The Texans allow 29.5 fantasy points, 141.1 yards, and 1.2 touchdowns per game to running backs.

Don't be surprised if this rookie running back catapults and carries many fantasy teams to a championship.

Latavius Murray, Denver Broncos

Murray has been serviceable as the Broncos' leading rusher, averaging 12.6 carries, 47.5 yards, and 0.4 touchdowns. He has been really effective in gaining yards after contact, considering 69.5 percent of his yardage has come after contact. Let's see what kind of damage Murray can do against the Cardinals.

The Cardinals allow 24.4 fantasy points, 85 yards, and 0.7 touchdowns per game to running backs this season.

Wide Receivers

Josh Palmer, Los Angeles Chargers

Palmer has been super consistent in his last eight games, averaging 5.9 receptions, 63.3 yards, and 0.3 touchdowns. His advanced stats are off the chart this season as well. He is averaging 69.4 air yards and has been targeted on 20.5 percent on route runs. In Week 15, Palmer has a prime opportunity to smash the Titans' terrible secondary.

The Titans allow 41.9 fantasy points, 191.3 yards, and 1.3 touchdowns per game to wide receivers.

Garrett Wilson, New York Jets

Wilson has been tremendous with Mike White as the quarterback. He is averaging 6.3 receptions, 111.7 yards, and 0.7 touchdowns with White under center. He is averaging 71.8 air yards and is targeted on 26.2 percent on route runs. Plus, Wilson is averaging an incredible 5.7 yards after the catch. Now he has a chance to skyrocket to elite fantasy stardom in Week 15 against the Lions.

The Lions allow the third-most fantasy points to wide receivers, allowing 40.8 fantasy points, 198.8 yards, and 0.9 touchdowns. The Lions' secondary has struggled against WR1s, allowing nine targets and 94.1 yards, which would make Wilson a guaranteed top-ten wide receiver.

If you are starting Mike White, you can't go wrong with stacking him with Wilson.

Tight End

Greg Dulcich, Denver Broncos 

Dulcich has been very effective as a rookie tight end averaging 5.6 targets, 3.5 receptions, and 45.1 yards. His advanced stats are similar to most starting wide receivers. He is averaging 64.8 air yards per game and is targeted on 21.4 percent on route runs (very close to Palmer's advanced stats).

In Week 15, Dulcich has the ultimate fantasy-friendly matchup for tight ends against the Cardinals. They allow the most fantasy points to tight ends, allowing 19.2 fantasy points, 79.2 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns per game.

Flex

Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers

Embed from Getty Images
Watson has been on a Garrett-Wilson type of dominant run since Week 10, averaging 6.8 targets, 78.3 yards, and 1.8 touchdowns per game. He has a decent 13.5 average yards per target and is averaging 53.9 air yards per game. Watson's averages indicate that he will destroy the Rams in Week 15.

The Rams allow 35.9 fantasy points, 160.7 yards, and 0.9 touchdowns per game to wide receivers!

Defense/Special Teams

Kansas City Chiefs

Congratulations to the Chiefs for being the first repeat defense in the vampire league article. The Chiefs face off against the Texans, who, as everybody knows, have one of the worst offenses in the NFL. They have allowed 33 sacks, 16 interceptions, six fumbles, and five defensive touchdowns. So, the Chiefs' defense could put as many points on the board as their explosive offense.
