Recommended Lineup Week 14
All lineups are based off of a $1,000,000 salary cap featured at Daily Joust
, you best option in daily fantasy
sports gaming. Lineups consist of a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker and one team defense. Teams are created for the King Arthur’s Free For All including all Sunday games.
QB: Drew Brees
(NO) @ NYG--$190,000--After a terrible game in Week 13, Drew Brees' price has fallen to a level in which he can almost now be considered a value. The Giants defense has allowed eight touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks over their previous five games, which ranks them in the bottom half of the league in fantasy points-per-game allowed to opposing quarterbacks, so a rebound should be expected from Brees and Company.
RB: Matt Forte
(CHI) @ MIN--$104,000--Although the Vikings have been decent against the run this season, over their last two games they have allowed 237 yards to opposing running backs to go along with three touchdowns. To add insult to injury, the Vikings have allowed three receiving touchdowns on the season to the same group, so Matt Forte should be in for a big game Sunday.
RB: Vick Ballard
(IND) vs. TEN--$78,000--With Donald Brown ruled out for Week 14, Vick Ballard will get the start for the Colts, making him a great value in daily fantasy football contests. The Titans have given up a touchdown to opposing running backs in all but three games this season, so there is a good chance he nets good return on investment this week.
WR: Brandon Marshall
(CHI) @ MIN--$148,000--To call Brandon Marshall a fantasy beast this season may been selling him short, and this week he should continue his current hot streak. Marshall has been targeted at least 10 times in all but three games this season and has hauled in 22 catches the last two weeks, so ignore the price tag and continue rolling with him.
WR: Chris Givens
(STL) @ BUF--$103,000--Some may consider this a risky play, but after his performance last week, he looks to be the real deal. If Danny Amendola plays Sunday, he will take away some of his targets, but Givens is a major down-field threat, unlike Amendola, and the Bills have has issues in that area of the field this season.
WR: Pierre Garcon
(WAS) vs. WAS--$84,000--Since Pierre Garcon returned to the Redskins starting lineup, the team is 3-0 and he has been a major factor in those victories. Robert Griffin clearly enjoys throwing him the ball, targeting Garcon 17 times the last two week, and going up against a vulnerable Ravens secondary, expect much of the same this week.
TE: Jimmy Graham
(NO) @ NYG--$113,000--You can't roster Drew Brees without rostering his favorite target, even if the matchup isn't the best. The Giants have contained opposing tight ends this season, but they have yet to face a threat like Jimmy Graham, so don't look too deep into the matchup and roll with arguably the best tight end in the league.
K: Phil Dawson
(CLE) vs. KC--$90,000--Since Week 9, Phil Dawson has scored at least eight fantasy points in the Browns four contests, including games with 16 and 11 fantasy points. The Chiefs rank in the bottom have of fantasy points allowed to opposing kickers this season, so all signs point to a good day for Dawson.
DEF: Cleveland Browns
vs. KC--$90,000--The Chiefs played inspired football last week after they lost a teammate to a tragic event, but this week I expect them to return to Earth and, making the Browns a solid play this week. The Browns defense has recorded double-digit fantasy points four times this season, and this week should be the fifth.
Total Salary: $1,000,000
Value Picks for Week 14
(DET)--$180,000--Although the Packers allowed just nine fantasy points to Matthew Stafford in Week 11, a lot of that had to do with his three turnovers, which I don't expect to happen again in this rematch, so roll with Stafford as a low-end top 10 play.
(TEN)–$147,000–The Colts defense has allowed six passing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks over the last three weeks, with just two interceptions, making Jake Locker a good sleeper play this week.
(PIT)–$83,000--With Big Ben back under center, expect to see a more balanced offensive attack, with Jonathan Dwyer receiving a heavy workload out of the backfield.
(JAC)--$61,000--He may have been the No. 4 running back for the Jaguars entering the season, but it is now his job after a few injuries, so roll with him if needed against a terrible Jets run defense.
(PIT)--$95,000--As previously stated, Big Ben is back under center, which increases the value of all the weapons in the Steelers offense, so give Brown a shot, if needed.
(TEN)--$80,000--Wright has been targeted 18 times the last two weeks and should continue to get a heavy workload against a vulnerable Colts secondary.
(NYG)--$74,000--Martellus Bennett appears to be healthy and like we saw on Monday night, Eli Manning loves to target him in the red zone, so consider him as a low-end top 10 play this week.
(DET)--$72,000--The Packers allowed seven receptions for 61 yards in the team's Week 11 matchup, and there is a good chance of a repeat, considering the injuries to the Packers defense.
