Our analysts reveal the fantasy soccer takes they’ve essentially the most conviction for heading into Week 14 that will help you really feel higher in regards to the lineup selections forward. For extra sit-start recommendation, try our rankings hub.
Pair of Packers WRs may also help you
I didn’t suppose I’d be saying this right here in Week 14, however I’m looking for methods to connect myself to the Jordan Love Packers offense. That’s how good he’s appeared. What a world! I’d categorize Christian Watson as extremely questionable going into this week after one other hamstring subject. The Packers ought to need to play it protected with him and may really feel comfy with the opposite guys of their secure. Fantasy managers must also really feel that very same consolation.
Jayden Reed has 23 targets during the last 4 weeks and has three whole touchdowns. The Packers have been intentional about getting the ball in his fingers with 5 rush makes an attempt on prime of his receiving work. Reed seems like a future star on the market and has introduced a lot juice to this offense. I really like him as a begin in opposition to the Giants. In case you’re in a pinch or a deep league, don’t overlook Dontayvion Wicks, who can take a few of Watson’s exterior receiver reps. This man is aware of the right way to get open and is averaging 9.6 yards after the catch per reception in his final three video games, per Fantasy Factors Knowledge. His early Reception Notion knowledge is promising. I believe this man can play, too. — Matt Harmon
Barkley exits the bye week as a 6.5-point underdog in opposition to Inexperienced Bay. There’s no higher matchup for fantasy RBs the final two months than the Packers. Inexperienced Bay has allowed essentially the most yards and factors per recreation to the place throughout that span. Final week, we watched Isiah Pacheco have his finest recreation as a professional in opposition to the Packers, averaging 6.1 yards per carry and totaling 110 yards on the bottom.
Barkley’s position stays elite. He ranks third in RB utilization this season, averaging 22.9 alternatives per recreation. This has solely continued with Tommy DeVito below heart. In two video games with DeVito, Barkley has seen 87% of the snaps and earned 22.7 alternatives per recreation. Anticipate one other heavy workload in a optimistic matchup in Week 14. Barkley will end as the general RB1 this week. — Sal Vetri
Bears lose, Fields’ managers win
Hopefully we are able to all agree that the Chicago Bears, coming off a scintillating 12-10 Monday night time win over the Vikings, are the NFL’s hottest and buzziest staff. It’s my distinct pleasure to report that Justin Fields goes to maintain the nice occasions rolling in Week 14, as he’s headed for a top-three positional end. Chicago will get a house date with Detroit, a staff that’s allowed 30.3 PPG over the previous 4 weeks and not too long ago gave up 104 speeding yards to Fields himself. The Lions have given up the fifth-most passing touchdowns and fifth-most speeding yards to opposing QBs, so that is undoubtedly a premium matchup.
I’m not truly predicting a Bears win right here, as I’m not delusional. However Fields needs to be a lock to ship a wholesome level whole. — Andy Behrens
Mitchell led Baltimore’s backfield in snaps, routes, carries and yards in the course of the Ravens’ final recreation and will see the rookie bump following the staff’s bye. His snap price has elevated each recreation he’s performed all year long, whereas Gus Edwards’ fell to 26% in Week 12. Mitchell has the identical variety of breakaway runs (4) this season as Josh Jacobs on 191 fewer carries. The diminutive again isn’t going to turn out to be a workhorse (and his YPC is bound to regress), and Edwards stays the favourite on the goal-line. However Mitchell is an explosive runner who is usually a distinction maker given 15 touches or so. The Ravens are 7.5-point residence favorites this week in a recreation that might characteristic ugly climate, so Mitchell’s run as this yr’s “fantasy league-winner” begins Sunday. — Dalton Del Don
Adams has one recreation this season with 100-plus yards. Let that sink in for a second. That is nonetheless some of the gifted large receivers within the recreation, however circumstances haven’t been in his favor. Whereas the Raiders have had their share of chaos on the quarterback place — get in line — Adams had seen a gradual food regimen of targets earlier than the Raiders went on bye final week. He drew 33 targets in three video games, the place he registered receiving yardages of 86, 82 and 74 in opposition to the Jets, Dolphins and Chiefs. All are solid-to-great in opposition to the move. The Vikings are far-off from these groups so far as prowess in opposition to the move, as they’re twenty third in fantasy factors allowed to large receivers. D.J. Moore went for 114 receiving yards in opposition to the Vikings in Week 11, the fourth receiver to hit triple digits this season. Adams goes to make it 5. — Jorge Martin
Zach Wilson is again in our lives, a transfer nobody was clamoring for. However Wilson no less than locks in on Garrett Wilson, and Houston’s secondary is a gettable matchup. I understand Garrett Wilson managers have been melancholy all yr, dreaming of what may need been; the dream died on the opening drive of the season. And the New York offense has a irritating landing allergy, which could not be cured till subsequent yr. Nonetheless, I will fireplace up Wilson as a lower-end WR2 this week. The targets needs to be there, a few of them even on the right track. — Scott Pianowski
