Before we get into my picks for Week 14, we have a special guest making some picks for us as well.
Rich Hribar is a daily fantasy football enthusiast and he writes for XNSports and NumberFire. Here are his picks (10.8 means $10,800 etc.) :
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick @ 10.8
QB Nick Foles @ 12
RB Matt Forte @ 13.2
RB Demarco Murray @ 12.4
WR Riley Cooper @ 11
WR Roddy White @ 9.8
TE LaDarius Green @ 8.4
FLEX Eddie Lacy @ 11.9
FLEX Steven Jackson @ 9.7
This is a week where I think there a ton of strong running back plays over the top receivers, so I’m going to load up on matchups against teams that have shown a recent incapability to stop the run at all. Chicago, Green Bay, Atlanta and Dallas are all allowing over 160 yards rushing per game over the past three weeks, so fitting all four of the backs facing them is something I’m comfortable with. Detroit has been dominant in defending the run the past six weeks (allowing only 40 yards per game), setting up Foles to have a large passing volume. I could’ve gone with a safer stack at receiver (Kendall Wright), but Cooper should benefit from that volume and has a big mismatch versus the Lions secondary who has been roasted all season long by WR2’s. Roddy will supplement me choosing a high ceiling guy over the safe Wright and Green is coming off of his most snaps played and gets a Giants team that has allowed eight top 12 tight ends this season.

Rather than choosing a few players at each tier, focusing on one lineup seems to be the best way to win. This lineup is used for many head to head match-ups and in multiplier tournaments. If you want to maintain a steady flow of cash, play the head to head games. But if you are looking to “go big or go home” try the multiplier tournaments.
Here is my lineup for this week.
This is the first week in a few months that I have decided to go heavy at RB, but with the rest of the lineup, I felt confident with the two best PPR scoring running backs on StarStreet. Jamaal Charles and Matt Forte each have great matchups (Washington and Dallas, respectively) and will be well worth their salaries.
At quarterback, Philip Rivers has been one of the best fantasy players in terms of value all season, and at only $11,500 against the porous Giants defense, that is a steal. Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to be a daily fantasy star due to his low salary, yet high production each and every week. Fitzpatrick will have every opportunity to do the same this week as the Titans will have to keep up with the Broncos.
At tight end, I am gambling with Delanie Walker. He was injured last week, but signs indicate he may play on Sunday. The Broncos have been terrible defending the tight end this season and Walker has been a quiet star in Tennessee. Should the stars align, he will be in for a huge day.
At receiver (and FLEX) I decided to go with some good values. Antonio Brown and Michael Floyd have been incredibly consistent this season, and have tremendous upside as well, which is rare for a player under the $12,000 price tag. My last two players were guys who could potentially have huge games in Reuben Randle and Dwayne Bowe. Both have been very involved in their respective offenses lately, and against the Chargers and Redskins, each could have a huge day.
