A lot of games will see cold weather, wind and downpour this week. It’s extra important to pick players in favorable weather conditions this week.
Look no further. Here are some killer fantasy advices. For both cash games and GPP contests.
Players I dislike week 14
QB Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Last week I recommended staying away from NFL’s perhaps hottest QB Marcus Mariota.
“But he’s facing the all-healthy defense of Denver Broncos – the defense that won the Super Bowl last year with the worst QB-play of all time. Broncos corner backs Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. are ranked 1&2 in the whole NFL.”
I hope you listened because he only produced 7,3 fantasy points.
This week Patriots are travelling to Mile High stadium in a cold Denver.
The Broncos D has one weakness, and that’s against the run. Why would Patriots do anything else than run the ball all day long?
Broncos D are great against the pass. Besides having great corner backs they also have a very potent pass rush. Patriots will not risk Tom Brady’s health in a game they don’t even need to win.
RB Todd Gurley, L.A. Rams
There must be something wrong with you if you would even consider starting Gurley away against Seattle in December.
Jared Goff is the worst QB in the league. It’s not out of the question that Seahawks defense produces more TD’s than he does.
Seahawks wants Goff to throw. They will stack the box against Gurley and laugh all their way to a win.
WR DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans
I consider DeAndre Hopkins as one of the best wide receivers in NFL. But the passes comes from Brock Osweiler, whom I consider one of the worst QB’s in the NFL. The stats back me up.
Jacksonville Jaguars have a lot of talent on their defense. They have been very good against the pass lately. I think that trend will continue.
TE Martellus Bennett, New England Patriots
Bennett will be a popular option with Gronkowski out. By those who don´t realize that Bennett need Gronk to get open.
Bennett has only gotten 15 targets the last four games Gronk has been out. Without an unlikely touch down Martellus Bennett is fantasy death.
Players I like week 14
QB Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
He´s the most expensive of all QB’s this week, and he will be a very popular choice. Not usually my cup of tea, but there are many things that I like about Matt Ryan this week.
Falcons have the highest scoring and most potent office in the league. They are playing at home, in a dome and against San Francisco 49ers.
I don’t see 49ers defense bringing their A-game to Georgiadome. And even if they did I don’t care. They are one of the worst stop-units in NFL.
Superstar WR Julio Jones will probably miss this game. That should keep some “experts” from picking Matt Ryan. It’s not everyday you can get the top QB-option as a contrarian play.
QB Sam Bradford, Minnesota Vikings
Bradford is playing at home in a dome. The running game is non-existing and they will have to air it out.
Indianapolis Colts cannot stop any attack. Bradford is a cheap option in a probable shoot-out with a lot of upside.
RB Bilal Powell, New York Jets
It seems that Bilal Powell is always underrated. But he produces every time he gets the chance.
There is a big chance Matt Forte will not suit up for this game. If so, Bilal Powell is a must in all your lineups at a very cheap price.
Just make sure Forte really is out before you set your lineups.
WR Ty Montgomery, Green Bay Packers
Packers are using wide receiver Ty Montgomery as a running back. He even got a goal line carry last week.
They should be able to pound the rock against Chicago Bears.
They will pound the rock in a projected very cold stadium, making it hard to catch the ball.
Montgomery is a very solid play this week.
TE Ladarius Green, Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers tight ends are always forgotten in fantasy circles. It’s understandable with RB Le’Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown getting all the attention, and therefore presents an opportunity itself when the circumstances are right.
The TE production of Steelers is better than you think. This week they play against Cincinnati Bengals that have given up some huge games to tight ends. Like 14 receptions and 192 yards against Washington Redskins and 14 receptions and 142 yards against Philadelphia Eagles.
He is ranked 11th with $5,600 at FanDuel and ranked 13th with $3,700 at DraftKings.
Ladarius Green could be the play of the week
K Cairo Santos, Tennessee Titans
I expect Marcus Mariota and Tennessee Titans offense to bounce back, but I expect it will go no longer than to the redzone and Kansas City Chiefs very impressive defense.
That could equal a lot of field goals points.
D Miami Dolphins
Bryce Petty is the name of the Jets QB. He has almost no experience and I expect a couple of mistakes in a probable low-scoring affair.
Jets O-line is not good, and Dolphins have a good pass rush.
