The fantasy playoffs are here, just like the closed-wing rankings of Week 14 do not present more opportunities to complain about how difficult the position is. It's time to buckle up and make the right calls to start your load for the fantasy championship.
We have two dream confrontations for initial TES of limit fantasy, so if you're going to broadcast, it should be Jack Doyle (@ Buccaneers) or Vance McDonald (@ Cardinals). McDonald faces the Cardinals, the show that was worth transmitting throughout the year. And Doyle, now the unquestionable headline with Eric Ebron (ankle) out, faces Arizona Lite's opponent, Tampa Bay. It is worth starting both if you do not have any of the top level options.
WEEK 14 RANKINGS NO PPR:
Field Marshal | Running back | Wide receiver | D / ST | Kicker
You will also want to monitor Zach Ertz hamstring injury because it is exactly the type of ailment that may arise again. Dallas Goedert is a limit holder, anyway, but if Ertz were out, he would enter self-start territory for Week 14. Gerald Everett's injury status could also be important for homeowners who transmitted Tyler Higbee for his day. Week 13 race and I think it would be worth using it in Week 14 against Seattle.
Ryan Griffin should have a good chance to continue his solid game against the Dolphins, while Jared Cook has a brutal showdown with the 49ers, but is too involved to rule it out completely. Cook could have had two touchdowns on Thanksgiving if things had changed one foot here or there.
Of course, all Austin Hooper (knee) and Evan Engram (foot) owners will be very attentive to updates about their injuries during the week. If they return, they will make the position much deeper and let fewer owners have streamers this week.
Reminder: Check back for updates during the week.
