At this point, you should have read through the entire NFL Week 14 DFS Playbook, all the coaching pieces, the weekly match-up previews, played with some of the NFL DFS tools we have and built out a few lineups, both for cash games and GPP tournaments. How do they look? Have you used some of the chalky free squares the public is giving you? Are your cash lineups built on the backs of high-floor players instead of dart-throws? Are you differentiating yourself from the rest of the herd for your GPP tournaments with some strong contrarian plays? What stacks have you built around and is there enough correlation in your lineup? These are obviously rhetorical questions from me, but you should be asking yourself these very same questions. And once they've been properly answered, it's time to compare them to our example lineups provided here.



Just a few notes here about the lineups below...

The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.

Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.

**Be sure to check the Playbook and Dart Board for late changes

Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!


According to Adam Schefter:

Geno Smith is dealing with what is considered a two-week injury to his groin, and as much as the Seahawks QB would like to try to play through it, Seattle is not expected to decide on his availability for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers until pregame warmups.

Jaguars are planning for Trevor Lawrence to start vs. the Browns, but need to work out their star QB in pregame warmups before making a final decision

Browns elevated QB Joe Flacco from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars.

Jaguars’ RB Travis Etienne, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a rib injury, is expected to play vs. the Browns

Seahawks’ RBs Kenneth Walker (oblique) and Zach Charbonnet (knee), both listed as questionable for Sunday, both are expected to play vs. the 49ers

Jets’ RB Breece Hall, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is expected to play vs. the Texans

Broncos’ RB Samaje Perine, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a knee injury, is expected to play vs. the Chargers

Saints’ WR Chris Olave, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an illness, is expected to play vs. the Panthers but he is under the weather

49ers placed WR Ray-Ray McCloud on the Injured Reserve list and signed WR Chris Conley to the active roster.

Saints’ TE Taysom Hill, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a foot and left hand injury, is not expected to play vs. the Panthers

Saints’ TE Juwan Johnson, listed as questionable due to a quad injury, is expected to play vs. the Panthers

Bills activated TE Dawson Knox from Injured Reserve

Rams activated former Packers’ kicker Mason Crosby from their practice squad to their active roster to kick in Sunday’s game at Baltimore.

Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play Sunday vs. the Buccaneers.

Other News:

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Browns WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ribs) will play in Week 14 against the Jaguars.


DET/CHI -- Dry, 10-15mph sustained wind with gusts 15-20. That wind might impact a few deeper plays, but for the most part won't be an issue.

JAC/CLE -- Can't fully rule out a shower, but not expected. Winds around 10mph sustained, gusts to 15mph.

IND/CIN -- Dry, sustained winds around 10mph with gusts around 15mph

HOU/NYJ -- Wet. Off and on downpours, and even when it's not a downpour there's still likely some light rain. There's also thunderstorm potential so a delay is possible. Winds sustained around 10-15mph, but gusts could reach over 30mph. In summary: wet and windy and ugly, and a bump down to offense.

LAR/BAL -- Winds here look less ominous than in NY/NJ, but it's still an ugly game. Rain essentially all game, and most of that is heavy rain. I expect sloppy conditions and a run-heavy approach.


As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
