It's "Miller Time" again on FanDuel
With a full 16-game slate of games on tap for Week 14, it is both intuitive and still worth noting how ownership percentages are spread thinner due to more available options. There will always be uber-chalk to consider, but unlike when bye weeks rob us of two-to-six rosters worth of choices, player usage is less concentrated. We can still dabble in buzzier games this week, like the up-tempoed Bills-Eagles matchup, without choking on chalk — assuming we don’t sniff around LeSean McCoy.
McCoy is the perfect convergence of ESPN broadcasting live from Narrative Street and a sweet paper matchup. Everyone and their grandmother know about his Chip Kelly drama after McCoy’s steady stream of soundbites. He is a strong play, is only the fourth-most-expensive running back, and has a coach that lives for moments like this. McCoy is a tough fade, and having zero exposure is risky — but luckily there are a couple of directions to pivot toward this week.
A couple of those choices are discussed below and will be fairly popular. But with plenty of options on this 16-game menu – especially at quarterback and receiver – being overly contrarian likely offers diminished returns. Instead, keeping an eye out for value will be more helpful in a week where little exists.
On with the Week 14 FanDuel tournament picks.
