Week 14 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings & Projections: Justin Herbert & Chargers Ready To Rebound

We are inching closer and closer to the finish line and Week 13 was a wild one. There was the Jets tank job against the Raiders that allowed Ruggs a game-winning touchdown. The Giants pulled off a stunner in Seattle while the Falcons offense continues to run through Younghoe Koo. Cleveland made a statement against the Titans, who continue to be among a group of teams that you don’t know what you will get each week. Looking ahead at Week 14, everything is intact at the moment. There are no bye weeks and this is the beginning of the fantasy football playoffs for some or potentially the last week that could make or break your team’s chances. Carolina is the team with some early covid-list news so that will be something to watch this week against Denver. Week 14 sets up with some interesting matchups, especially for fantasy. The Bucs-Vikings has plenty of fantasy weapons as do the Falcons and Chargers.

Week 14 Quarterback Rankings

18.67.11.71.10.6

Justin Herbert struggled against the Patriots but there is no better matchup than facing the Falcons, who have allowed the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Herbert has been tremendous this season but Bill B had Herbert on lockdown but this one was over before it began. Despite the Patriots game, he has scored 26 points per game over the last five weeks. Lamar Jackson still has a game in hand and gets the Browns this week, who have allowed the 6th most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Jackson should be able to take advantage of this one. Josh Allen faces the Steelers this week, who has been a stellar defense all season long. I worry about Allen in terms of upside this week and he drops out of the top ten due to a few other matchups being more favorable to others.

Tom Brady is one of them facing the Vikings, who have allowed 22.6 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks on the season. Brady has been a top-ten scoring quarterback this season with 28 touchdowns and 3,300 yards through the air. Minnesota’s pass defense continues to be exposed and this is a major mismatch. Aaron Rodgers continues to just be flawless and has 36 touchdowns, leading the NFL. The Lions defense continues to struggle and made Mitchell Trubisky look good this week. A big game for Rodgers is incoming. Deshaun Watson faces a Chicago defense that just allowed a monster game to Matthew Stafford. I am beginning to wonder if this Bears team is mailing it in. Watson has been excellent as QB5 this season despite the tough schedule early, a bad offensive line, and now losing Fuller.

David Montgomery is coming off a big week and gets the Texans. Montgomery could really end the season strong. He is now RB11 in PPR scoring. He faces the Texans and they have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game. I love this spot for Montgomery who has been a workhorse this season. Ezekiel Elliott has struggled this season yet still ranks RB7 despite all the chaos in Dallas with the offensive line and losing Dak Prescott. It is a great spot against the Bengals and despite how bad the Cowboys have been, this should be a favorable game script. The Colts running backs have been great fantasy assets over the last few weeks. Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines both rank 15 and 16 in PPR scoring. They faces the Raiders who have allowed the 5th most fantasy points per game.

Derrick Henry and the Titans were hit in the mouth and it took Henry out of the game early. It is a great bounce-back spot against the Jaguars, who have allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game. Henry’s final stretch is going to be loaded with fantasy points. Aaron Jones broke off a big run against the Eagles but otherwise, he has been somewhat quiet. The Packers onslaught is on this week, as they have allowed 32.5 PPR points per game to running backs and a total of 23 touchdowns.

Week 14 Wide Receivers Rankings

Keenan Allen had a down game with the rest of the Chargers and to continue this trend, Allen is in a great spot this week. The Falcons continue to allow hefty fantasy point games to wide receivers, and Allen is now WR4 in PPR scoring. The target share took a small hit but both him and Allen and the premium guys. With Taysom Hill under center, Michael Thomas has found an emergence. The targets are going to him and Thomas is overall likely just healthier. He faces the Eagles, who have been struggling against the pass and are bottom ten in DVOA against the pass. Their fantasy points allowed numbers are a bit tame because of the NFC East games that bog it down. Davante Adams is on another level and gest the Lions who have been without key players in the secondary. He is on the road and this should be a big game for the Packers.

TY Hilton has produced of late and sneaks up in the rankings. He has a really nice schedule the rest of the way and gets the Raiders this week, who have struggled against the pass. There is also a high total in this one. Figuring out which Buccaneers WRs is tough each week but they draw the Vikings who have allowed the 4th most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. On the flip side of this one, the Bucs pass defense is easier to attack. Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson are strong players in this spot.

Week 14 Tight Ends Rankings

Travis Kelce is continuing his strong season and has really put it all together when it comes to the massive touchdowns and 1,000+ yard season. He is averaging 20.1 PPR points per game, which is absurd. Darren Waller added some monster numbers to his stat line this past week against the Jets. It is really a two-horse race at tight end, but Kelce is still miles ahead. TJ Hockenson is next in line with a 52-614-5 line and his second year is really taking off. It also helps that Kenny Golladay is off the field. Mark Andrews is due back this week and the Browns have struggled against tight ends this season. They have allowed the 4th most fantasy points to tight ends on the season. A couple of good matchups for some middling fantasy tight ends. Hunter Henry faces the Falcons, who have allowed the 5th most fantasy points. Mike Gesicki is a fringe top-ten option.

Week 14 Kicker Rankings

1544775316.9

There are a few kickers that stand out this week and one of them is Joey Slye. He faces the Broncos, who have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing kickers. They have allowed 33 attempts as a whole. Slye has been a strong kicker this season, and that should continue this week. As mentioned above I expect the Ravens offense to move the ball a bit better this week and that should set up an extra attempt or two for Tucker. Harrison Butker finally got some of his volume up and he will face the Dolphins this week. Matchups don’t matter as much for the kickers on premium offenses. Ryan Succop is in a good spot in addition to the good offense, as the Vikings have allowed the 5th most fantasy points per game to kickers this season.

New Orleans SaintsThe two AFC North defenses this week find themselves in upside spots. The Steelers face a tough Buffalo team but will be a defense to make life rough on Josh Allen. While Pittsburgh has lost two linebackers over the last few weeks for the season, this is still a great unit with a ton of upside this week. As for the Ravens, injuries have hurt them but they are starting to get back on track after a rocky few weeks. The Browns defense has had their issues and has not figured out Lamar Jackson since he has become the starting quarterback. Putting pressure on Baker Mayfield can turn him back into a pumpkin. This is not the Titans defense that they trounced this week. Philadelphia has been mum on who they will start this week against the Saints but either way, New Orleans is playing unreal defense and a turnover-prone Eagles offense that has failed to protect their quarterback is going to be trouble. Kansas City is another one this week that I like. Tua will have to step out of his comfort zone and that is not ideal facing this team that has a good secondary and can put pressure on you.
