DFS Digging In The Crates Daily 2019 week 14 DraftKings

Week 14 (DraftKings)

Main Slate (13 games)






Derek Carr vs. Tennessee ($5,000)

The Raiders have had a rough few weeks but I expect Derek Carr to get back on track week 14 against the Titans at home. For perspective he’s projecting higher than Kyler Murray, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Phillip Rivers and Baker Mayfield. For the price he is cash game viable. It’s a game with playoff hopes potentially on the line.

Andy Dalton @ Browns ($5,200)

Andy Dalton was very efficient in his return week 13 in the Bengals first win of the season. He threw a strike to Tyler Boyd and could have had another one if it weren’t for a drop by his tight end. He’ll get a divisional matchup against a Browns team he’s played as much as any team. In his career he is 11-4 against the Browns and 5-2 in Cleveland. Anticipate him becoming the 45th quarterback in history to throw for 200 career touchdowns. I think he is safe to make value based on price but don’t feel the need to go all in.



Running backs



Derrius Guice @ Packers ($4,900)

Derrius Guice had only twelve touches week 13 for 135 yards and a touchdown. One would think he would have gotten the ball more. Regardless, the good news is that he scored twice from the goal line and will have a small role in the passing game. Guice is in a great spot week 14 against a Packers run defense that has been hemorrhaging yards on the ground all season. He’s a great GPP play.



Alexander Mattison vs. Lions ($4,500)

If you’ve caught a glimpse of Alexander Mattison, then you know he is the real deal. A perfect compliment to Dalvin Cook in a run-heavy scheme offense. Cook is expected to play week 14 but the Vikings are heavy favorites and may be cautious with his work load. If Cook were to sit then Mattison would become the top value on the slate in all formats. If he plays then Mattison is still in play for tournaments only due to touch/usage uncertainty. It’s a situation to monitor closely.





Wide receivers



Mike Williams @ Jaguars ($4,500)

Mike Williams has yet to score a touchdown in 2019. He’s also been the king of air yards. Touchdowns are unpredictable and like home runs in baseball, they eventually come. Positive regression will be coming and as fantasy owners we want to be on the right side of it. Williams caught 5-of-7 passes for 117 yards (19.7 FPTS) week 13 in Denver. It’s a week to pay up for wide receivers, but i’ll have exposure to Mike Williams at a low ownership in tournaments.



Robby Anderson vs. Dolphins ($5,100)

It was this time last year that Robby Anderson was forming a high aDot rapport with Sam Darnold. Anderson has caught 11-of-16 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown over the last two weeks. The truth is that Robby Anderson is playing for a big contract and the last four games as a Jet could be an audition for that contract. He has shown time and time again that when he has opportunities he produces. I don’t trust him in cash games but he’s a beautiful GPP play.





Tight End



Mike Gesicki @ Jets ($4,000)

Mike Gesicki is getting front row seats to the Ryan Fitzpatrick gun show. He’s caught 8-of-10 targets over the last two week with touchdowns in each game. Outside of Davante Parker, Gesicki is option number two. The Jets have been stingy against tight ends so far this season which would make Gesicki a perfect tournament plat based on usage and cost. He is by no means a roster priority as I see week 14 a week to pay up for a tight or two.



Kyle Rudolph vs. Lions ($4,400)

Dollar for dollar, Kyle Rudolph may be the best tight end on the main slate week 14. The Vikings are heavy favorites at home and will more than likely be without Adam Thielen yet again. Rudolph has looked like his old self over the last four weeks with five touchdowns in that span. Fire him up in cash games and tournaments.





Defense/Special teams



Buccaneers vs. Colts ($2,300)

I’m feeling frisky this week and paying way down for a defense which is rare. The Bucs have three interceptions, three defensive fumble recoveries, eleven sacks and two touchdowns over the past two games. Count me in. We’re getting bang our buck here!
