Top 8 Fantasy Sleepers for Week 14: Guice is Nice

Looking to gain an edge next season in your fantasy football league? Look no further than the fantasy football rankings & projections. They have all the information you need for a successful season. Also, don’t forget to check out our brand new fantasy football defense rankings.

This week, there are eight quality sleeper picks who would benefit your fantasy team. Wide receivers like Darius Slayton and James Washington are likely to go off against weak secondaries that rank in the top ten in terms of allowing fantasy points. Also due to injuries, players like Tyler Higbee and Zach Pascal are primed for great outings as TE2 and WR2 options each. Additionally, Ryan Tannehill is a great alternative for any owner who is dealing with a tough matchup or quarterback injury.

Darius Slayton

Darius Slayton is the best skill position sleeper pick who is surprisingly owned by less than 40 percent of fantasy leagues. Slayton has been a savior for many fantasy teams, averaging 18.4 fantasy points since week 10. Slayton is also averaging over ten targets per game since week 10. This Monday, Slayton will face a Philadelphia Eagles team that is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers. Therefore, you’d have to be crazy to not pick up Darius.

Ryan Griffin

Ryan Griffin is a great fantasy tight end sleeper in week 14. Since week 11 he has been a quality option who averages 13 fantasy points per game. Over his last six games, Griffin has scored ten or more points in four contests, indicating that he’s a relatively safe option. Surprisingly, Griffin is owned by less than 25 percent of leagues even though he ranks in the top five for tight end touchdowns. Desperate fantasy owners should grab him while they can.

Zach Pascal

Zach Pascal has the potential to be a great fantasy WR this Sunday. Due to teammates like Eric Ebron and T.Y. Hilton being injured, Pascal currently leads all Colts pass catchers in terms of receiving targets and yardage. Even more promising, Pascal is competing against a Buccaneers team that is surrendering the most fantasy points to wide receivers. There’s no way you can pass him up if you’re in need of a wideout.

Baker Mayfield

Even though Baker Mayfield has had an underwhelming fantasy season, he is a quality QB to add in week 14. Over the past five weeks, Baker has been a good fantasy option who’s averaging 17.6 fantasy points. This week Mayfield has a favorable matchup against the Bengals. Cincinnati’s defense has been generous to quarterbacks, averaging the tenth-most fantasy points to QBs this season. As a result, Baker is definitely a good streamer pick.

James Washington

Over his past four games, James Washington has played like a WR2. Since week ten, Washington is averaging 16.7 fantasy points. This season, he is also the Steelers’ second-leading pass catcher in terms of targets. You can expect Washington to excel in week 14 against a weak Cardinals defense that allows the third-most fantasy points to receivers.

Tyler Higbee

With Gerald Everett out due to a knee injury, Tyler Higbee excelled in week 13 with seven catches, 107 yards, and one TD catch. He finished the weekend as the league’s most productive fantasy TE with 23.7 fantasy points. If Gerald Everett is unable to play in week 14, Higbee could be a great streaming option against a Seahawks defense that is surrendering the fourth-most fantasy points and third-most receptions to tight ends (Heavy Sports). Higbee’s fantasy owners should pay close attention to the Rams’ injury report to make a good decision on whether to start him.

Ryan Tannehill

Tannehill has been the biggest fantasy sleeper since week seven. In fact, Tannehill has been a safe QB option who has scored 15+ points in five of his last six games. This week, he will go against an Oakland Raiders defense that allows the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Therefore you’d be crazy to leave him on your bench this Sunday.

Derrius Guice

Since being reactivated to the Skins roster, Derrius Guice has been a productive running back. Last week Guice excelled, rushing for 129 yards and two scores. This week he will compete against a Green Bay Packers defense that has failed to stop opposing rushing games. The Packers currently allow the tenth most rushing yards per game, so you can best believe that Guice will be a great flex option in week 14.
