Fantasy Football 2017: Week 14 Start / Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 14
December 7, 2017
Week 14 is upon us in the NFL, and that means it’s playoff time for a lot of fantasy football leagues. To help you get into that next round, let’s check out a few borderline decisions you may be stuck with in our weekly Start/Sit recommendations.
USA TODAY Sports
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets: We’ve been on the McCown bandwagon for a few weeks now, and he’s continued to put up some nice fantasy numbers.
McCown has at least 18 fantasy points in five of his last seven outings, and goes into a matchup against Denver this week. The Broncos have allowed four top-11 fantasy QBs at home this year.
Frank Gore, RB, Indianapolis Colts: In the fantasy wasteland that is Indianapolis, Gore stands out as a decent flex play this week.
Gore is the top guy among Colts RBs, and he should get plenty of reps this weekend against the Bills. Buffalo has given up five top-six PPR RBs this year.
Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns: Gordon is back in the mix since last week, following an absence that had stretched since 2014. He managed a team-high 11 targets on 48 snaps.
Gordon gets a good matchup this week against the Packers, and Green bay has allowed 13 TDs to wide receivers this year.
Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons: It’s time to cut the cord with Ryan if you’ve got any viable alternative ready. He hasn’t hit the 20-point fantasy threshold yet this year.
Ryan will be going up against the Saints this week, and NO is allowing the second-fewest passing yards in road games this year.
Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings: If you’re thinking about starting Murray this weekend, you might want to look elsewhere as he’s pretty risky in this matchup.
Murray will be going up against the Panthers, and Carolina has allowed only three rushing TDs to RBs at home this year.
Jordy Nelson, WR, Green Bay Packers: Nelson owners probably aren’t relying on him much these days, but he’s still getting into lineups based on name recognition.
Nelson put up just 17 yards on five catches last week, and is due for another stinker against the Browns. Cleveland has allowed only one WR to post better than 22nd in PPR in their last four home games.
