Picking the right Start/Sit options for Week 14

Fantasy Football Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Week 14

This is what all that hard work we put in during the summer was for. Making it to Week 14 with a playoff berth on the line. In the regular-season finale, our Fantasy Football Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Week 14 will help you secure one final victory before next week’s postseason journey begins.

Additionally, FullTime Fantasy has some of the top tools of the trade and accurate rankings.


Start ‘Em

Jordan Love (Green Bay Packers) at New York Giants

Love is hitting his stride at the opportune moment. He is boasting a noteworthy 90.3 PFF grade in the last five weeks. That ranks  fifth among players in his position during this period. Over the past four weeks, Love consistently secured a spot in the top 12 fantasy quarterbacks. That includes two top-seven finishes in the last two weeks.

Love’s performance against man defenses has been particularly impressive this season. This includes a significantly higher big-time throw rate (7.0% vs. 3.8%) and a lower turnover-worthy play rate (1.8% vs. 2.5%). Given the Giants’ tendency to play man coverage, the Packers, who are clear favorites, provide a favorable setting for Love to make impactful plays early in the game. The only concern arises if they amass a substantial lead and resort to a more run-heavy strategy in the second half.

Josh Dobbs (Minnesota Vikings) at Las Vegas 

Although trusting Dobbs may require some courage-especially after his challenging Week 12 performance against the Bears with four interceptions and a mere 6.5 Fantasy points- considering him as a low-end starting Fantasy quarterback for Week 14 against the Raiders is reasonable. Dobbs’ recent struggles need to be viewed in light of his previous four outings, where he scored at least 26.9 fantasy points in three of them.

Additionally, with the return of Justin Jefferson, the Vikings’ offensive dynamics could shift positively. The Raiders have been relatively tough on opposing quarterbacks this season. However, both Tua Tagovailoa and Patrick Mahomes managed to score at least 21.6 Fantasy points in their recent encounters. Dobbs, with his potential to utilize his legs and connect with Jefferson, aims for a better showing in this matchup.

Sit ‘Em

Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers) vs. Denver

While not a must-sit, Herbert’s recent performances highlight a boom-or-bust trend. Herbert has fewer than 14 fantasy points in two straight and four of his last seven games. Also, the Chargers’ offense lacks a downfield element, limiting Herbert’s fantasy upside.

Additionally, facing a tough Broncos defense that has held top quarterbacks in check, including Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen, suggests exploring other QB options if available.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

James Cook (Buffalo Bills) at Kansas City

Cook has seen less than 50% of the Bills’ offensive snaps in the last three weeks. But his efficiency when on the field is evident. Despite limited playing time, he secured a top-20 fantasy running back finish in each of those games. In that span, he’s averaging 14-plus touches per game and over 100 yards of offense. Although his touchdown count is modest this season, the Bills have a favorable running back matchup against the Chiefs, who have allowed the fifth-highest yards per carry at 4.6.

Despite being the underdogs, the Bills’ recent close games have not hindered them from feeding Cook the football. Expect Cook to maintain his season-long trend of significant touches, high yards per touch, and a probable absence from the end zone, leading to a top-24 running back performance.

A.J. Dillon (Green Bay Packers) at New York Giants

Similar to Cook, Dillon has been a consistent force for the Packers in the last three weeks, securing a top-20 fantasy running back finish each time. With 14-plus touches per game and over 100 yards of offense in those contests, Dillon has maintained fantasy success despite a modest three touchdowns this season.

This week, Green Bay faces the Giants, providing a favorable matchup for running backs, and Dillon is expected to continue receiving a significant workload. Despite the close nature of recent games, the Packers remain committed to feeding Dillon the football. Anticipate Dillon replicating his season-long performance with a considerable number of touches and another quality fantasy outing.

Sit ‘Em

Devin Singletary (Houston Texans) at New York Jets

Singletary’s role has diminished, with only 80% of offensive snaps two weeks ago. And he faces competition for touches with the return of Dameon Pierce and Dare Ogunbowale. The Texans’ matchup ranks as the sixth-worst for running backs according to the strength of schedule tool, making Singletary a risky play for Week 14.

D’Andre Swift (Philadelphia Eagles) at Dallas

Swift’s recent performances, coupled with potential health concerns, make him a flex option at best against the Cowboys. Struggling to reach double-digit PPR points in three of his past four games, Swift faces a tough Cowboys defense that ranks third in fewest fantasy points allowed to running backs.

Wide Receivers

Start ‘Em

Courtland Sutton (Denver Broncos) at Los Angeles Chargers

Sutton stands as the primary receiving option for the Broncos, showcasing consistent production and a commendable receiving grade. With a touchdown in nine out of 12 games and over 50 receiving yards in the last four games, Sutton ranks 18th in fantasy points over the past four weeks and 21st over the season.

Facing a Chargers defense that has surrendered the third-most fantasy points to wide receivers, Sutton, despite the underdog status of the Broncos, is poised for ample targets and a reasonable chance of scoring a touchdown.

Courtland Sutton and the Broncos’ WRs boast the third-easiest playoff schedule per FullTime Fantasy’s Matchup Analyzer Tool.

Jayden Reed (Green Bay Packers) at New York Giants

If you can’t tell I love Green Bay this week. Similar to Sutton’s role with the Broncos, Reed assumes the position of the top receiving option for the Packers. With a touchdown in nine out of 12 games and over 50 receiving yards in the last four games, Reed ranks 18th in fantasy points over the past four weeks and 21st over the season.

The matchup against the Giants provides an opportunity for Reed to continue his productive streak, especially given the projected gameflow, leading to an expectation of numerous targets and a reasonable chance of finding the end zone.

Sit ‘Em

Tee Higgins (Cincinnati Bengals) vs. Indianapolis

Higgins’ return in Week 13 was modest, with three catches for 36 yards on three targets. Given the uncertainties in the Bengals’ passing game, Higgins is only worth starting in three-receiver leagues, as Ja’Marr Chase appears to be the more reliable option.

DeAndre Hopkins (Tennessee Titans) at Miami

Hopkins recently delivered an impressive performance in Week 13 against Indianapolis, securing five receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets and amassing 18.9 PPR points. His synergy with rookie quarterback Will Levis was evident in Week 11 at Jacksonville, where he notched 15.9 PPR points.

However, the upcoming Week 14 matchup against Miami poses a challenge for Hopkins, as he is expected to face the formidable Dolphins cornerback, Jalen Ramsey. Despite the anticipated difficulty, I maintain the decision to start Hopkins in three-receiver leagues. Nevertheless, it’s worth noting that this road game could present a roadblock.

Tight Ends

Start ‘Em

Gerald Everett (Los Angeles Chargers) vs. Denver

In a favorable matchup against the Broncos, who rank second in Fantasy points allowed to tight ends, Everett stands as a reliable option for low-end starter status in all leagues. Demonstrating a reliable connection with Justin Herbert, Everett posted eight catches on nine targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in his past two games against Baltimore and New England.

Isaiah Likely (Baltimore Ravens) vs. Los Angeles Rams

In the absence of Mark Andrews in Week 12, Likely showcased promise with four catches for 40 yards on six targets against the Chargers. With a favorable matchup against the Rams, who have allowed tight ends to score at least 13 PPR points in four of their past five games, Likely is a viable option to trust in Week 14.

Sit ‘Em.

Kyle Pitts (Atlanta Falcons) vs. Tampa Bay

Pitts has struggled to surpass 60 receiving yards in most games this season, finding the end zone only once. Facing the Buccaneers, who have been relatively tough on tight ends, Pitts’ inconsistent performances and limited touchdown opportunities make him a risky start for Week 14.
