Week 14 in the NFL means that it is Week one in your fantasy playoffs. I hope that you are having the pleasure of playing in your leagues second season. If you are not so lucky, I send my apologies. Let's get all you playoff teams ready for this playoff edition of Start Em n Sit Em.
Josh McCown – McCown is averaging 18 pts in 5 of his last 7 games. He has a matchup against the Broncos this week. Denver is allowing QBs to perform very well at Mile High. I like McCown this week.
Rex Burkhead – Burkhead has 15 or more points in 3 of his last 4 games. The Dolphins are the worst team against receiving RBs. Burkhead should be a solid player.
Josh Gordon – Gordon had 11 targets on his return last week. This week they play the Packers who have allowed the 4th most FPPG to WRs. 13 TDs
Jason Witten – Although Witten has been up and down all season, this week should be up. The Giants allow the most TDs, 10 and the highest FPPG to TEs, 17.
Dan Bailey – Bailey had a good return last week against the Redskins. He should stay in your lineup this week against the Giants. Bailey put up 13 in week one against them.
New York Jets – The Jets have a very good matchup this week against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos are averaging three TOs per game.
Cam Newton – The Vikings are allowing just 13 FPPG to QBS. They also allow the fewest rushing yards to QBs.
Latavius Murray – The Panthers are only allowing 3.7 yards/carry. Their defense has also only given up three rushing TDs on the season.
Jordy Nelson – Nelson has not caught more than 5 passes since the breaking of Aaron Rodgers. The Browns have only allowed one receiver to finish in the top 20 in the last four weeks.
David Njoku – Should not be very strong against the Packers. Only one TE has finished better than 14th for the week. Cameron Brate last week.
Brandon McManus – McManus has a total of 10 points in his last three games. Make that four. The Jets only allow 6 FPPG to kickers away from MetLife.
Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles are the best defense in the league. However, a matchup against the Rams could do them in. Opposing defenses are only averaging 3.2 against Jared Goff.
I hope that you are all set for your playoffs. Good luck.
