Home I Daily Fantasy Sports I DFS Bettings I The Best Picks For NFL Week 14
Week 14 is going to be intense as it marks the start of the final sprints for the division titles and the playoff spots. Some teams are struggling to reach the post-season, calculating probabilities and considering each and every point. The leaders, such as the Eagles, the Pats, the Rams, and the Steelers, are also restless. A division victory could mean that the road to the Super Bowl would include a homefield advantage, and this is something huge. Without further ado, let us present you our list of the best picks for NFL Week 14.
We went with the Eagles QB Carson Wentz over QB Jared Goff of the Rams, but it was a tough decision. Both quarterbacks come from the same QB class. Goff was drafted with the first pick of the 2016 NFL Draft and Wentz was picked immediately after with the second pick. Both quarterbacks are having great sophomore seasons this year, being the main reason their respective teams top the league in terms of offense. The Eagles and the Rams offenses have scored 361 points (30.1 points per game) this season and are tied for first place. That makes the Week 14 clash between the two teams one of the most anticipated games of the regular season. And what makes this match even more special is the fact this is the first time these two quarterbacks have faced each other in a game of an NFL level.
QB Carson Wentz is in the slightly better position with his Eagles being among the 2 conference-topping teams (together with the Vikings) and a season record of 10-2. Expect a high-scoring game with lots of pass plays and showdowns of pure quarterback excellence.
In the first paragraph we made it clear we would put our fantasy trust in Eagles QB Carson Wentz. So the question is who is he throwing to? WR Nelson Agholor is one of Carson’s favorite targets. Furthermore, the Rams have shown some weaknesses against pass plays with wide receivers recently. Nelson Agholor has always been a solid starter for the Eagles. If he manages to catch most of Wentz’s deep throws, he’s turning into a game-winning factor. Philadelphia’s running backs are good weapons. LeGarrette Blount and the recently acquired RB Jay Ajayi are to be feared by any opponent but against the rough Rams ground defense I can’t foresee great results.
The rookie RB Christian McCaffrey showed us many times during the season that he can catch passes when his gap is not open. It is a pity the Carolina offensive line allows so much pressure to QB Cam Newton and the RBs. The Panthers will be hosting the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday. The Vikings defense allows the fewest rushing yards to quarterbacks, which means that if someone is about to run the ball, it would most probably be RB Christian McCaffrey, and not QB Cam Newton. Over the last four games McCaffrey ranks second in targets for the Panthers – mostly passes in the backfield, but that’s fine as long as it works. The kid is a top performer this season and is capable of dropping the bomb of NFL Week 14 leading the Panthers to a less-probable win.
TE Jason Witten managed to score a touchdown last week versus the Redskins and has a great matchup against the Giants, at least statistically. The Giants continue to be the most desired opponent for any NFL tight end, as they typically allow at least one touchdown to a TE per game.
Jason Witten was a beast back in Week 1 against the Giants and if he repeats this performance on Sunday, we can expect a lot of fantasy points coming from the TE position.
Last time the Steelers played against Baltimore, their defense completely destroyed the Ravens. This is not uncommon, despite the final match result. In NFL Week 14 we expect things to go in the same fashion, despite the Steelers’ huge key player loss in LB Ryan Shazier. Not only was he the heartbeat of this defense, but was also orchestrating it wearing the headset helmet. Having lost him for the rest of the season, “the Steel Curtain” is already being underestimated, and that’s a mistake. In Week 14 the Steelers defense will be more fearsome than ever. They will be playing for their brother, who will be watching from the TV-set in the Pittsburgh hospital.
