What a good start to December, amiright? Our Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown stack destroyed last week. In fact, every pick hit save for Jarvis Landry because the Dolphins are dumb and C.J. Anderson, who was off to a great start, was injured about halfway through the game.
This week the salaries are a little tighter, but that shouldn’t stop us. We will be once again be looking at the Steelers for our stack du jour, despite the fact they are in Cincinnati. Of course, we will be all over Tampa Bay as well.
If your season league is over, why not dip your toes into the daily pool with these:
Week 14 Daily Fantasy Football: DraftKings Picks
Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints ($5,500)
Ok, the premise is simple, start quarterbacks against the Saints. Jameis may be one of the most popular players this weekend, given the price tag. It’s really, really tough to fade him in cash games but if you want a shot at the million on DraftKings, you may need to stay away from Jameis, but for $5,500, it frees up so much room. Welcome to Temptation Island.
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals ($6,800)
The Steelers offense is lethal. Last week I used Ben in almost every lineup and it paid off in spades. Clearly, the pricing hasn’t caught up to the production. Let’s put it this way, if you aren’t going to play Winston, Ben should be your second option.
LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills at Philadelphia Eagles ($6,100)
Here is the narrative street. McCoy versus his old team. He will need no more motivation than that. His coach is Rex Ryan and we all know how the Big Rexy loves to troll. McCoy could touch the ball 30 times this week as the revenge factor will be in play. He’s the No. 1 back on the board in my opinion.
Shaun Draughn, San Francisco 49ers at Cleveland Browns (4,800)
We like backs who get volume and we are not talking about L’oreal hair care products. Since Week 9 Draughn has scored double-digit fantasy points in every game. In DraftKings you get a full point PPR so this guy is doing more than his part. Up next, a game against the Cleveland Browns who are 27th against running backs.
Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts (Does it matter?)(8,900)
While it’s not the Colts, the Bengals are not stopping Brown this week. You can take that to the bank. It’s nice to have my favorite stack back! Antonio will be in 100 percent of my lineups this week.
Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints ($7,200)
Pair with Jameis Winston and watch the magic. Evans has had no less the four catches and 63 yards in his last four games. If you decide you would rather save money and go with Vincent Jackson, you have my blessing. (Because you really needed it.)
Danny Amendola, New England Patriots vs. Houston Texans ($5,200)
We are going back to our guy, who has been Dantastic! Over his last three games, he has had 7, 9 and 10 catches respectively. That alone is enough to roster. He will be really overlooked this week as Houston’s defense has been better lately. However, he will not have to deal with the elements as this game is in Houston. Love me some Danimal this week.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints ($2,700)
The price is hard to ignore and that’s why we love ASJ. The match-up is as solid as your shirt. He was second in targets last week as well. I will be taking my chances with him in this game against the 32nd-worst defense in the NFL.
Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bill at Philadelphia Eagles ($6,100)
Well, I may have just put the kiss of death on Watkins, but with McCoy getting all the attention from the defense this should open up things for Tyrod Taylor’s prom date, Sammy Watkins. Watkins has been on fire lately. Isn’t it amazing what happens when you get your playmakers the ball? Right Atlanta?
Seattle Seahawks ($3,500)
Top dollar defense, but you’re crazy not to roster the Seahawks defense. If Matt Schaub goes, it’s pick-six time! If he doesn’t we get to see career journeyman and crash test dummy, Jimmy Clausen.
Other things of note:
- The DraftKings Millionaire Maker is $3 this week. Yeah, look that’s super cheap but you will have to take down 986,000 contestants. Good luck friends! I’m not saying don’t play, but just know your odds.
- I’m not interested in anyone on Thursday night. Join some leagues that run through the weekend and let the other players make the mistakes.
- As far as off the radar picks I like the following: Jay Cutler, Ronnie Hillman (if C.J. Anderson can’t go), and Doug Baldwin. (Seattle can’t possibly keep scoring like this can they?)
Good luck and hopefully, my Week 14 Daily Fantasy Football: DraftKings Picks will help propel you to victory!
