Dr. Roto’s NFL DFS Week 14 Rundown
Jameis Winston — Jameis is playing at a very high level and he gets the struggling Saints at home. It doesn’t get much better than this. A bit chalky, but worth it.
Kirk Cousins — After starting the season flying high, the Eagles have come down to Earth. Cousins is the hottest QB in the NFL, and I think 260 and two TDs is his floor.
Russell Wilson — I was surprised that Wilson didn’t throw for three TDs last week, but I think he makes up for it in Green Bay. With Earl Thomas out, this game will be higher scoring than most people think.
Tom Brady — Brady always brings it against Baltimore. I think he might be able to throw four TD passes in this one. I am all-in and will be playing Sun-Mon and Mon-Thurs slates so that I can get him into my lineup.
Colin Kaepernick — No one will touch Kap which is just fine by me. The Jets have given up, and Kaepernick is still looking to get paid next year. I like him to rebound in a big way.
Joe Flacco — Baltimore will keep this game close, and if I believe that Brady is the best start of the week (and I do) then Flacco makes for an excellent off-play considering this should not be a blowout.
Trevor Siemian — Don’t laugh but Siemian has been pretty good recently. The Titans have struggled in their secondary all year, so I think that Siemian is a very sneaky but cagey play.
Andy Dalton — Big Red vs. the Browns?! I like him to throw for 300 yards and two TDs.
DeMarco Murray — The Broncos run defense is awful. Murray is a lock for 100 yards. A must-play on FD.
Todd Gurley — I like him vs. the struggling Falcons. The Falcons have also been generous with RBs catching passes out of the backfield so Gurley might be an interesting play on DK as well.
Jeremy Hill — He is going to get tons of touches against the worst team in the NFL. He will be over-owned for sure, but I think he will be worth it.
Melvin Gordon — When a player gets 26-30 touches a week I have to put him on the short list. I don’t like him as much on the road, and even a bit less if Kuechly is back, but he will be on a roster or two for sure.
Le’Veon Bell — The Bills are a hard team to predict what they will do defensively, but if I had to guess, I think Rex Ryan makes sure that Antonio Brown doesn't kill him which means that Bell should have a big game.
LeSean McCoy — I worry that he will lose goal line carries to Gillislee, but he is playing tremendous football.
Carlos Hyde — The Jets run defense is not as staunch as it once was. I like him for 100 yards and a TD.
Tevin Coleman — With Jones injured and Sanu most likely out, watch for Coleman to be a little more involved in the offensive game plan.
Justin Forsett — Booker, is struggling, and if Forsett plays well, he will continue to get touches. I like him for salary relief but only on DK.Listen to "The Best Plays for Week 14" on Spreaker.
Mike Evans — My number one WR this week for sure. He will amass a dozen targets in a must-win game for the Bucs to make the playoffs.
DeAndre Hopkins — Hopkins always seems to tear up the Colts and CB Vontae Davis looks a step slow this season.
Julian Edelman — Get him into your lineup! I love him to catch about ten passes for 100 yards.
Doug Baldwin — If Seattle wants to win this game, Wilson is going to need to rely on Baldwin (and Tyler Lockett) to get the job done. While I like Lockett, Baldwin is the safer play and I think is a target machine on DK.
Steve Smith — I expect this to be a very high scoring game and Smith loves the Monday Night cameras.
Emmanuel Sanders — If I think Siemian is going to have a good game, then it is going to be Thomas and/or Sanders who goes off. I prefer Sanders
Willie Snead — Snead seems to play well on the road and with the Bucs struggling at slot CB, I think Snead is a sneaky snare.
DeSean Jackson — NARRATIVE Play! DJax is looking for a new contract, and the Eagles are at the top of his list. A beautiful 45-yard TD grab should cement his deal in the off-season.
Taylor Gabriel — Will get plenty of targets with Sanu most likely out.
Malcolm Mitchell — I love him! The Patriots are going three WRs all the time these days, and with Baltimore having a good run defense and Bennett being nicked up, I think that Mitchell performs once more.
Ted Ginn — Casey Hayward will cover Kelvin Benjamin leaving Ginn open for another deep bomb.
Zach Ertz — If it’s the second half of the year, you know it’s Zach Ertz time. Ertz has been a major force recently, and while I worry about the return of Jordan Matthews, I still think he gets 6-7 grabs for 70-80 yards.
Tyler Eifert — The Browns cannot cover the TE and Eifert is Dalton’s top weapon and go to guy in the red zone.
Ladarius Green — Big Ben is using Green as his second weapon after Antonio Brown. I like him to have a solid week, and his price is still reasonable.
Jermaine Gresham — Miami couldn’t stop Dennis Pitta, so I have to believe that Gresham is worth considering.
Coby Fleener — Josh Hill is out for the year, and Drew Brees may need to lean on Fleener if Michael Thomas is out.
Dennis Pitta — He always seems to be in the right place for Flacco, and I see him scoring another TD on Monday night.
