LOS ANGELES, CA- Week 14 Fantasy Football Predictions
START EM’- NO QB Drew Brees; Cowboys took care of business last week locking Brees up limited him 127 yards 1 TD and 1 INT in loss. But no more come this Sunday vs the terrible Bucs D that allows 395 total yards which is 27th in the league. Bucs also allows 29 PPG which is 30th in the league. The Saints run game is great so with that Brees will be able to run the play action and take shots down field.
SIT EM’- PHI QB Carson Wentz; The Cowboys D is something to talk about this season. The linebacker duo of Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esh has established the Cowboys do be a top 5 D. Vander Esh is currently 5th in the league with 102 tackles and also got 2 INT on the season. Dallas is up against a beaten up Eagles team that is currently 6-6. Dallas only allows 226 PYPG (7th in the league), 91 RYPG (4th in the league) and 18 PPG (2nd in the league). Tough matchup for Wentz.
SLEEPER- LAC QB Philip Rivers; The dark horse MVP candidate in my opinion and with a dream matchup against dead last in almost every stat defensively. Allowing 30 PPG (32nd in the league), 433 TYPG (32nd in the league), 279 PYPG (32nd in the league) and 153 RYPG (31st in the league). Rivers has a 115 passing rating throughout the season only 6 INT. Philip is throwing 84.4% complication rate 558 yards 5 TD and 0.0 INT through these last two games. It will continue Sunday, making the win streak to 3.
NOTABLES- PIT Ben Roethlisberger, BAL Lamar Jackson
START EM’- LAC RB Justin Jackson; 7th round draft pick out of Northwestern showed up last Sunday rushing for 63 yards on 8 carries and 1 TD (first career TD). Ekeler wasn’t getting the job done Anthony Lynn decided to throw Jackson in the mix and it worked out perfectly. With the Chargers up against the second to worst rush D allowing 153 yards per game. This boi is gonna show up again and fill in the shoes of Melvin Gordon for the meanwhile.
SIT EM’- KC RB Spencer Ware; With Kareem Hunt out (cut) Spencer Ware is a forsure add BUT this week the Chiefs are up against their biggest challenge this season. The Ravens only allow 83 RYPG which is 3rd in the league. The rush D will stop the run game and make Mahomes throw and make plays with his arm and they will abandon the run game in all.
SLEEPER- PIT RB Jaylen Samuels; James Conner went down with a nasty injury to the leg and it didn’t look good. With that said “THE NEXT MAN UP” Samuels will be the man to lead the rush game. Samuels only got 31 rushing yards on 12 attempts and 54 receiving yards on 9 catches and 2 TD. Jaylen has a dream matchup vs a Raiders D that allows 153 RYPG which is 31st in the league.
NOTABLES- WAS Adrian Peterson, GB Aaron Jones
START EM’- SF WR Dante Pettis; Pettis thrived on the absence of both Goodwin and Garcon catching 5 receptions and 129 yards and 2 TDs. Mullins found a young fast target in Pettis and will have another great outing with Denver allowing 260 PYPG which is 23rd in the league and Chris Harris Jr. out for the season.
SIT EM’- KC WR Tyreek Hill; Get Tyreek’s jersey # and add 3… That's how much receiving yards he had in the win against rival Raiders Sunday. Hill had more rushing yards (37) than receiving yards. Those numbers were up against a 14th ranked pass D. This week Hill is vs the 2nd best pass D only allowing 194 PYPG.
SLEEPER- BUF WR Zay Jones; Buffalo Bills got the scissors out this week and cut both Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes. Jones caught 4 balls for 67 yards and 2 TD in loss last week vs the Dolphins. With Josh Allen developing by the week, Jones will have yet another great outing against the 16th ranked pass D.
NOTABLES- LAC Keenan Allen, NO Michael Thomas
START EM’- BUF DEF; The Bills opponent this week this Sunday is the 30th ranked offense in the Jets. Only averaging 301 TYPG behind Sam Darnold’s 14 INT to 11 TD. Also only completing 55% and having a QB rating of 68. The Bills D has 11 INT, 31 sacks and 7 FF on the season and those numbers will continue to go up.
SIT EM’- CAR DEF; Panthers are up against the Browns this Sunday. The Browns couldn’t mustard any offense vs the Texans hard hitting defense. Panthers are 14th overall ranked allowing 353 TYPG but on a 4 game losing streak. Browns will bounce back this week and Panthers will make the losing streak to 5.
SLEEPER- DEN DEF; Broncos are creeping up of late trying to take the 6th seed sitting on 6-6 record. Trailing the Ravens for the 2nd wildcard by 1 game the Broncos are gonna be playing hard to get a playoff spot. Broncos have 37 sacks, 13 INT and 2 Defensive TDs on the season and up against a depleted and injured offense that will turn the ball over.
