Best Week 14 Fantasy Football Players by Position
Week 14 Top 3 For Free!
Patrick Mahomes – This is Mahomes MVP game. The Chiefs have an encore in Miami this week playing the Dolphins after they won the Super Bowl earlier this year. This is a perfect game for Mahomes and company to continue the momentum they ended the Super Bowl with against a good Dolphins team, but not good enough to beat the elite teams. When Mahomes wins the MVP award this season, this game will be the first one remembered.
Tom Brady – Minnesota is allowing 261 yards per game through the air and the 3rd most points to fantasy WRs. With Tampa Bay coming off their bye, they should be fresh and sharp. Whether Chris Godwin plays or not, TB12 still has a ton of weapons with Mike Evans, Gronkowski and AB could breakout this week also. There has been talk about getting Rojo 20 touches but I still think in this game the majority of damage done to the Vikings defense will be from Brady airing it out.
Justin Herbert – The rookie has cooled off some but this game against Atlanta could be a track meet. The Falcons are second to last in passing yards per game given up with 291. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams should be excited to go against this poor Atlanta secondary. I think Ekeler could also be a problem out of the backfield and ultimately help Herbert be a top guy this week.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Phillip Rivers. Not too risky at all, but Rivers could be the waiver QB this week to get. The Raiders are very much toward the bottom in pass defense plus Phil has played them a ton while with the Chargers so that could be motivation for him.
Austin Ekeler – Lets try this again. I swung and missed badly last week with Ekeler. This week against Atlanta, I am expecting a track meet which would be great for the Chargers lead back. His volume is so impressive because he gets so many touches. Sprinkle in a score or two and Ekeler should be a top fantasy back in Week 14.
David Montgomery – Week 13’s RB1 should have another very productive day against the Texans. He should be north of 15 carries again and add his usual 4 catches against a soft Texans defense that allows any offense to run or pass on them. Montgomery reached the endzone twice last week which helped him be the top back and this he has a chance to do the same.
Todd Gurley – Gurley gets to go back to Los Angeles where he started his NFL career. The Falcons play the Chargers and not the Rams but nonetheless, Gurley helped build this beautiful new stadium. I think that motivates Gurley to play one of his best games this season. The Chargers are 18th against the run allowing 120 yards per game and I think they are getting ready to try their best to stop Julio and Calvin Ridley which could help Gurley find running lanes easier. Over 100 yards and two scores for Gurley in his return to LA.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. JD McKissic. I am super excited about McKissic this week. Alex Smith loves to throw the check down and McKissic is already going to see an increase in snaps with Antonio Gibson out. Don’t expect the 49ers to give up big plays anyway to this lackluster Washington offense so McKissic underneath might be open all day.
Davante Adams – In Week 2 I predicted Adams to torch the Lions secondary and he did not because he got a little injured so here is his chance to stay healthy and destroy them. In that Week 2 matchup the Lions let Aaron Jones run wild so their gameplan should be to stop him right. Either way, Adams is a monster this season and one can only imagine his numbers if he did not get hurt.
Stefon Diggs – The Steelers are down a man in the secondary. Joe Haden is out with a concussion and it is bad timing with a huge Sunday Night game against the Bills up next. Cole Beasley is going to be a problem underneath the Steelers defense which will help free up Diggs. Look for Diggs to eclipse the century mark for the fifth time this season and add at least one score.
AB – I mentioned it earlier but I think this is a great spot for Antonio Brown to have a breakout game. Coming off a bye week and playing a below average Vikings secondary is just what the doctor ordered. Chris Godwin might play and Bruce Arians has mentioned getting Rojo 20 touches but this is a pass first team (Brady is 2nd in pass attempts). Lets see if they can get toss it around Sunday against Minnesota.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. KJ Hamler. Hamler has been an underrated rookie in my opinion this season. He does not have eye popping numbers but he plays with great energy every game. I think it will pay off this week.
Travis Kelce – The best TE in the game. I expect him to be open a lot because the Dolphins play man a lot and will probably double Tyreek Hill.
Hunter Henry – The Falcons have struggled mightily against TEs this season and this game has the makings of being high scoring. That could mean a lot of opportunities for Henry.
Eric Ebron – With the Steelers WRs continuing to drop passes, it might be time to go to Ebron more. This is a green matchup against Buffalo who has allowed the 9th most points to TEs this season. Ebron has had back to back weeks of 11 targets and 7 catches.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Will Dissly. The Jets did not even know Darren Waller was on the field last week. Expect a blowout win for Seattle where everyone gets a piece of the pie.
Tyler Bass – A great season for the rookie kicker. Imagine a game where Buffalo is able to move the ball and need to finish some drives with 3 because the Steelers defense bends but does not break. SEND IN BASS!
Bobbie Gould – I like this game against Washington to be a bit of a snooze fest. Washington’s defense is good and the 49ers might need Gould to kick 5 FGs.
Harrison Butker – The Chiefs will move the ball at will. They will be up majority of the game and Butker will have XPs plus a few field goals.
Philadelphia – That is right, upset alert! I like to Eagles to play this game like it is their Super Bowl. I think they get after Taysom Hill who is playing well but not just dotting people up with his passes. The Saints have bad weeks running the ball sometimes even though they are the 7th best rush attack right now and the Eagles still have playmakers on the D line that could cause chaos in the backfield. The Eagles win a low scoring ugly game because of their defense stepping up big time.
Kansas City – The stage is too big for Tua and the Dolphins offense. At 8-4, Miami is currently in the playoffs, but the take on the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs this week who will just be too much. They will have to force things offensively to try and keep pace with Mahomes and company and that will lead to turnovers. The Chiefs will smell blood in the water against the fish.
Seattle – The Jets offense is the worst in the league. They will travel across country to play a motivated Seattle team and Jamal Adams. They have to be drained after being so close to winning their first game last week against Las Vegas but losing the way they did. No energy left this week. Seattle dominates.
