Week 14 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet

Two weeks from now, one anticipation owners in any joining will be celebrating a championship season. While any of those teams will be different, many will approaching share a common actor or two. There’s always a handful of players many obliged for lifting their owners to titles, and those players cocktail adult on some-more than their satisfactory share of championship teams.

With that in mind, we asked a anticipation experts a following doubt to flog off a Week 14 Cheat Sheet.

The anticipation playoffs are here. The actor who will finish adult on a many championship teams is

Michael Beller: Antonio Brown. Yeah, it’s a tedious answer, though there aren’t any points for grade of problem here. Brown is going to put his anticipation teams on his behind over a subsequent 3 weeks. First of all, we can’t win a anticipation championship unless you’re in a playoffs, and I’m peaceful to gamble a immeasurable infancy of Brown’s owners done a dance. That typically happens when your first-round collect does accurately what he’s ostensible to, giving we 15.3 points per diversion in standard-scoring leagues, and 22.63 points per diversion in PPR formats. Brown, as expected, has also strike his roof with some of a biggest coherence of any player, commanding 15 standard-league points and 24 PPR points in 7 of his 12 games.

There’s no reason to design Brown to tumble brief of his season-long per-game averages over a subsequent 3 weeks, so we’re already starting during a baseline of 15 and 22 points per diversion in customary and PPR leagues, respectively. There is reason, however, to design him to zephyr past those averages. Yes, he has a tough matchup with a Ravens in Week 14. The on-paper problem competence not matter for dual reasons. First, many of his approaching warranted byes. Second, no matchup is too most for Brown, and it’s value observant that a Ravens will be though tip dilemma Jimmy Smith, who tore his Achilles final week. The Steelers also have a advantage of personification this diversion during home, where both Brown and Ben Roethlisberger have been some-more prolific in their careers.

Now take a demeanour forward to Weeks 15 and 16. The Steelers horde a Patriots subsequent week, afterwards strike a highway to take on a Texans for a anticipation championship. Patriots-Steelers is certain to have an over/under north of 50 points, and a Patriots sojourn in a bottom third of a joining opposite far-reaching receivers in 4for4’s schedule-adjusted anticipation points authorised metric (aFPA). The Texans, meanwhile, haven’t stopped anyone by a atmosphere this season, ranking 28th in far-reaching receiver aFPA. We’re articulate about defenses like that going adult opposite Antonio Brown, a best receiver in a league, and a author of 4 games this deteriorate with during slightest 144 yards, and 5 with during slightest 10 receptions. He heads into a anticipation playoffs on a prohibited streak, throwing 28 passes for 414 yards and 6 touchdowns in his final 3 games. The object his shined on Brown owners all season. It competence be cold outward now, though they’ll still be basking in a regard of his championship-driving glow.

John Paulsen: When we initial review this doubt we immediately suspicion of Alvin Kamara, who was going in a double-digit rounds in anticipation drafts interjection to a presences of Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson. But Kamara’s concussion in Week 14 might hit some-more than a few playoff teams out of contention, so we started to demeanour elsewhere.

How about Adam Thielen? He’s now a WR10 in customary formats and a WR5 in PPR leagues, and he has a flattering good set of matchups—Carolina, a banged-up Cincinnati defense, and a Packers—to tighten out a season. He’s on gait for a 99-catch, 1,409-yard, four-touchdown season, all for a cost of a 10th-round pick. Methinks he’ll be on his satisfactory share of title-winning teams.

T.J. Hernandez: Mike Davis. Seemingly any deteriorate there’s a using behind who emerges late in a season, and a anticipation group that is propitious adequate to land that actor mostly creates a pretension run. It’s not a fluke that it’s roughly always a using behind that leads a way, as that’s a one position where a new starter is guaranteed volume, even if that actor doesn’t emerge until December. In Week 13, Davis was a initial Seahawks using behind given Week 2 to assemble 100 sum yards. Over the next dual weeks, Davis will face dual defenses in the Jaguars and Rams that flue anticipation points to using backs. Jacksonvile ranks initial in quarterback aFPA, though 24th opposite using backs. Los Angeles, meanwhile, ranks third opposite quarterbacks and 19th opposite using backs. Seattle wraps adult the fantasy deteriorate opposite a Cowboys invulnerability that ranks 21st opposite using backs when practiced for strength of schedule. The Seahawks are arguably a hottest group in a joining right now and will be personification not only for a playoff spot, though a probable multiplication title. The finish of a deteriorate sets adult for Davis to lift his group to a multiplication pretension and yours to a anticipation championship.

Jennifer Eakins: Philip Rivers. The Chargers quarterback is red prohibited right now, averaging 343 flitting yards per diversion with 6 sum touchdowns in his final 3 contests. In that same three-week timeframe, Rivers has put adult a third-most points among vigilance callers, entrance out to a strong 21.48 anticipation points per game. The Chargers report during a anticipation playoffs is intensely auspicious for Rivers and his gifted fast of weapons. He’ll face 3 defenses ranked 19th or worse in quarterback aFPA, including a dead-last Chiefs in Week 15. The defenses are also in a bottom half of a joining in far-reaching receiver aFPA, that bodes good for Keenan Allen, who’s on a prohibited strain of his own. Rivers has a goal over a championship hopes of his anticipation owners, with an AFC West pretension in sight. The appealing three-week report forward of him will assistance him be a 2017 anticipation playoffs MVP.
