TEAMS ON BYE IN WEEK 14: Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles





Cam Newton (vs ATL): After coming off a bye week, Cam Newton and the Panthers find themselves in an interesting situation. They are right in the middle of a wild card race and made a change to their coaching staff, relieving Joe Brady of his duties. Perhaps a different perspective on offense can help keep the Panthers' season alive. They have a great matchup vs the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Atlanta is allowing 20.7 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks and give up the third most rushing yards per game to opposing signal callers. This is right in Cam Newton's wheelhouse, a great spot for the Panthers to bounce-back.
Derek Carr (@ KC): In week 14, the Raiders travel to Kansas City and will play in a must-win divisional game vs the Chiefs. Just one game back from the wild card, the Raiders will be motivated to play well in this contest. The Chiefs are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks on the season. Carr is coming off a down game vs the Football team in week 13 but had 21.02 fantasy points vs the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in week 12. Earlier this season, in week 10, Carr put up 261 passing yards and two touchdowns vs the Chiefs, totaling 19.24 fantasy points. I'm expecting Carr to be somewhere in that ballpark (19-20+ fantasy points) this week.
Also Consider: Taysom Hill (NO), Ben Roethlisberger (PIT)





Sony Michel (LA): Rams starting RB Darrell Henderson was "active" in week 13 but did not play. Sony Michel filled in and did really well. He ran the ball 24 times for 121 yards and a touchdown, and also caught three passes for eight yards. At this point in the season, we are just looking to add quality handcuffs that are available on the waiver wire. Michel has shown that when given the opportunity, he is just that. If Michel is available, add him to the end of your roster, and start him if Henderson needs to miss any time.
Chuba Hubbard (CAR) - In week 12, star RB Christian McCaffrey went down with an ankle injury that require him to miss the rest of the season. The Panthers had their bye in week 13, so there is a chance Hubbard was not picked up in your league. If he is available, add him now. We have seen Hubbard produce high-end RB2 numbers in the absence of McCaffrey. Hubbard is available in 44% of leagues on
Also Consider: Rhamondre Stevenson (NE), Darrel Williams (KC), Jaret Patterson (WAS)





Russell Gage (ATL): One receiver who has quietly been producing quality numbers over the last few games is Russell Gage of the Falcons. Someone has to catch the ball in Atlanta, right? Well, over the last three games, Gage has had 9.90, 18.20, and 22.00 fantasy points in each game. He's seen 8, 7, and 12 targets over the last three games. He has really come on of late. Follow the targets. He's a quality WR4/flex option right now.
Van Jefferson (LA): As long as Van Jefferson continues to be under-rostered in fantasy leagues, we will keep recommending him. Van Jefferson is on just 35.0% of fantasy rosters right now. That number should be closer to 60%. He just continues to produce for the Rams. Over the last two weeks, Van Jefferson has topped 15+ fantasy points in each game. He is a big part of this offense and needs to be on your radar.
Also Consider: Laviska Shenault (JAC), Amon-Ra St. Brown (DET)





Evan Engram (NYG): We have mentioned Engram many times in this section throughout the season, and he continues to produce. In week 14, he gets a fantastic matchup against the Chargers, who are allowing the third-most fantasy points to tight ends per game on the season. The Chargers are allowing the most touchdowns to the position (tied with the Eagles) as well.
Also Consider: Tyler Conklin (MIN), John Bates (WAS)





CAR (vs ATL)
DEN (vs DET)
