Week 15

(DraftKings Main Slate)



Mike White vs. Lions ($5,400)

Few stories in the NFL have been better than Mike White so far this season. Potentially, just the Geno Smith Come back. There is a sense of magic when White is on the field, as he’s dropped 22 or more fantasy points in 2-of-3 games. He’s been limited with a rib issue, but all signs point to him playing against a suspect Lions defense. Vegas has this one real close (Jets -1) with a modest point total (44.5). It’ll be hard to get off the Mike White:Garrett Wilson wagon now.



Dak Prescott vs. Jaguars ($6,200)

It feels like a Dak Prescott ceiling game is on the horizon, because we have yet to see that despite the Cowboys success. That’s a good thing for the team and a sad feeling for fantasy footballers. It just means the running game has been extremely involved. The Cowboys; Jaguars has one of the highest totals on the Week 15 Board. The floor is safe and the ceiling is massive.




Running Backs

Zonovan Knight vs. Detroit ($5,300)

Mike White is going to be a popular cheap play this week, and for good reason. Pairing White with Garrett Wilson is the easy combo. If want to get different, adding Zonovan Knight makes plenty of sense. The Jets have a “committee”, but White has been the lead dog averaging upwards of 20 touches a game over his last three weeks. He’ll face a Lions run defense that is allowing 139 yards per game. The floor is safe, and we are waiting on the upside.



D’Onta Foreman vs. Steelers ($5,400)

We have seen the high ceiling, and we have seen the floor from Foreman so far this season, but the volume;usage has stayed at, or around 20 touches a game. Foreman will get a middle of the road Steelers run defense week 15 as slight favorites. The Panthers are going to run, and D’Onta Foreman is at the center of that. Volume on the cheap here.




Wide Receivers

Chris Moore vs. Chiefs ($4,200)

Nico Collins and Brandin Cooks were hobbled last week, and Chris Moore slid in nice catching 10-of-11 targets for 124 yards. We could see a similar work load for Moore again this week as the Texans are heavy under dogs to the Chiefs. This is an easy plug and play scenario if Collins or Cooks were to miss again.



Jerry Jeudy vs. Cardinals ($6,100)

The Broncos have been a monumental disappointment this season for a variety of reasons. It does not look promising for Courtland Sutton suiting up week 15, and Jerry Jeudy will be the beneficiary yet again. Jeudy caught 8-of-9 targets, for 73 yards, and three touchdowns a week ago. He’ll get a Cardinals secondary that has been destroyed recently by opposing wide receivers.




Tight Ends

Dalton Schultz @ Jaguars ($4,400)

What a dumpster fire the tight end position has become. All signs have been pointing this way for a while now actually. Dalton Schultz has been great with Dak Prescott over the past couple seasons, and they’ll get a plus match up against the Jags this weekend. Schultz has had 14 or more fantasy points in his last 3-of-5 games. The Jaguars allow a ton of fantasy production to TE’s, and it should remain the case Sunday.



Chig Okonkwo @ Chargers ($3,100)

We are bottom feeding at this point, but we’ll take five targets in three straight weeks. Okonkwo has become a safety blanket for Ryan Tannehill lately, as the Titans passing game is not a strength. I like the price, I like the volume.




Defense/Special Teams

Patriots @ Raiders ($2,800)
