Here are my notes as of late Wednesday/early Thursday for fantasy football players to watch or add in week 14 of the NFL season. We have some interesting developments this week so here they are:
I never took this guy along with the Dolphins seriously but as it stands, he is a complete beast and has almost clearly emerged as a top 10 receiver in the NFL. As long as Fitz continues to chuck it deep he will continue on this high upside trend, and even stack with Fitz! It may seem more appealing to take some Jets at home, but Fitz will be ready vs. one of his old teams to have given him a try.
Tennessee should continue their DST prominence here vs. the Raiders. Not considered one of the most efficient offenses in terms of DVOA. One thing everyone forgets about in fantasy football is special teams performance. For an explanation on footballoutsiders.com.
This way you can get a feel for how teams are performing and their changed to generally go about attacking opponents.

Visit the Beat the Bookie Statsational model here for projecting team strengths, weaknesses and the likely hood of a team leaning toward the run or pass in a given game scenario. Here’s the Power rankings from some of the lower teams to pick on this weekend.
Atlanta Falcons WR’s:
You could pick up in your league or play in DFS any of the WR’s right now from Atalanta. The game has a high over/under game total vs. the exhausted Carolina club the is giving up points. These include Julio, Ridley, Gage, and Blake, especially if injuries persist here. 9 targets in each of last 2 games for Blake. They will keep dominantly throwing. You could also use the TE.
Duke has finally been utilized this year, handling significant workload and he can do it again this week vs. Broncos as Denver has given up a lot of passing yards to backs as well.
Jimmy G vs Saints:
He should have a game, as no one really runs on the Saints, and Jimmy looked sharp delivering passes to Samule, Kittle, and Sanders, his 3 primary targets you could stack with. This despite the poor weather last week, they play in New Orleans for a much better field. Love to see what they can do.
Washington Running Game:
Here is where the rubber hits the road. Whether or not we are looking at a snow game or not the Skins cannot move the ball consistently through the air yet. Even though I hope Haskins gets better, he really has to rely on his dual threat of running backs with Guice averaging 13 yards per carry last game, he is let loose!
