Jamaal Williams

Green Bay Packers

Next Man Up


As expected, Ty Montgomery officially ruled OUT for Sunday against the Ravens. Jamaal Williams should start at running back.

Williams is not Montgomery or Jones, I would not recommend starting him if you can prevent it. It will probably take a positive game script for him to be heavily use, don’t be surprised if we see Cobb being used in the backfield, especially in third-and-long situations.

Alshon Jeffery

Philadelphia Eagles

Open Door for Agholor


Eagles coach Doug Pederson says that Alshon Jeffery's ankle injury has been lingering for a while, but he is "optimistic" he'll play against the Cowboys Sunday night. He will be listed as questionable.

I’m looking at Nelson Agholor having a nice opportunity to put up some points with Dallas being the 24th ranked defense against opposing WR’s. Ertz coming off of the injury report is an obvious play, he’s a must start whenever he’s on the field.

It seems as though Jeffery plays through injuries every year, but he’s not very effective when he does. His injuries tend to linger and former performance enhancer users tend to get hurt more often.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

KC Ready to Run


The KC/NYG game could experience heavy winds, and certainly, a blowout of the Giants is a likely outcome as well. If either, or both of these potential situations play out, it could be good things for the KC ground game.

Fantasy Goo: The Giants have surrendered 3 rushing TD in their last 2 games. On the season, they have given up the 5th most yards to opposing backs. Hunt is a great cash game play, and in GPPs, I will toss out a few line-ups with West, maybe 5%. If indeed it is a blowout, the Chiefs, led by Reid who is 16-2 off a bye, could look to lighten the load for their workhorse RB and let Charcandrick bat cleanup.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Sterling Shepard's Time to Shine


The Giants are going to need to put the ball in the air against KC. Keep an eye on the winds in this one. If it is north of 15mph, I will lessen my DFS shares.

Fantasy Goo: If the winds are not bad, Shep could get some looks as he should dominate KC's Steven Nelson. There are 84 starting cornerbacks in the NFL for Week #11. Nelson comes in at #80 according to PFF

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Joe Mixon

Cincinnati Bengals

Over the Hill


Bengals place Jeremy Hill (ankle) on IR.
Joe Mixon played on a season-high 73% of snaps and handled 94% of Bengals RB carries in Week 9 without Hill. Cincinnati OL remains a massive disaster, though, they are 31st in adjusted OL Yards and bottom-5 in PFF’s yards before first contact per RB attempt.

Volume is key as far as fantasy goes, but let’s take a week before we put Mixon in our starting line-ups. He hasn’t been able to more than 3.5 yards per carry in any game that he’s ha more than 10 carries, and Cincy is playing away, at Tennessee this week, so I expect a negative game script and probably more Gio Bernard.

Detroit Lions

O-line Getting Boost


The Lions activated T Taylor Decker and T Corey Robinson, and Decker will start. Rapsheet thinks this is like signing a big-time free agent midseason.

It usually takes a few games for an offensive line to gel, Stafford is already lighting it up, and tackles don’t usually have a drastic effect in the run game. This is a good sign that Detroit should be able to maintain their offensive consistency and makes Stafford more reliable throughout the fantasy playoffs.

Bilal Powell

New York Jets

Best Buy


Matt Forte didn’t practice for the third straight day with knee swelling. There’s concern about him going forward.

Fire up all the Bilal Powell, and keep Elijah McGuire on your watch-list. Powell is $4000 on DK this week, I have him in all of my GPP line-ups.

Pyro Fantasy Football Power Rankings

Week 14 Power Rankings for all 32 NFL Teams



Welcome to the Pyromaniac.com Fantasy Power Rankings. This weekly article is where you will find out which teams are dominating, or are being dominated, on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, in terms of Fantasy points. See below to see who the BEST team in the league is. These charts and our insight will help you visualize how the season has gone to this point, and give you a better feel for how the season will go week to week.  By using these charts you will have a better understanding of which matchups to exploit on a week-to-week basis, and DOMINATE your fantasy league.  This chart also includes averages at the bottom so you can compare a team’s score to the average and see exactly where they stand in evaluating the matchups.

 

 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME SCORED BY NFL TEAM OFFENSES 

most fantasy football points scored by position - week 14 chart

 

 

The Lions offense has really been clicking on all cylinders as of late and it has coincided with Megatron’s transformation into last seasons form. Mikel Leshoure has also been a hammer in the redzone in recent weeks, as he has scored 6 touchdowns in the last five games. This offense isn’t without its faults though as Ryan Broyles and Titus Young joined Nate Burleson on IR so they must find a receiver to step in and fill the void as the second pass catcher behind Megatron. As of now the Lions aren’t top five in any category but they are on the cusp in the QB and WR department.

 

 

The Panthers Offense has been on a climb in recent weeks as Cam Newton has begun to look like he is breaking out of his sophomore slump. On Sunday they were beaten by the lowly Chiefs but it was no fault of Cam’s as he was efficient with his arm, 15 of 27 for 232 and 3 scores, and legs, 7 rushes for 78 yards. With his performance in recent weeks he has climbed into a tie for 3rd ahead of notable quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning. The running game was also efficient for the first time in what feels like all season, averaging 7.5 yards a carry if you include Cam. This offense still has a lot of work to do to take that next step in becoming a top 10 offensive unit.

 


The Dallas Cowboys and the Indianapolis Colts both jumped 4 spots in our rankings this week as they both got into shoot outs. The Cowboys came up victorious against the Eagles 38-33 led by the Romo to Bryant connection and the return of Demarco Murray from injury. With Murray back in the lineup the Cowboys were a lot more balanced as Romo only attempted 27 passes. The Colts however were not as balanced as Andrew Luck attempted 54 passes to only 18 runs. The Colts are in desperate need of a running back to step up and take over the job in order to take this offense to the next level as the 5th worst production from the running backs just isn’t cutting it.

 

 

The Redskins and Chargers each fell three spots in the rankings but with much different results. The Chargers failed to score a touchdown yet again this season and look helpless most of the time, especially in the redzone. Antonio Gates hasn’t been much of a factor, Ryan Mathews continues to disappoint, and Philip Rivers looks colorblind as he has thrown 48 interceptions in his last 48 games. The “offensive guru” that apparently is Norv Turner leaves much to be desired and the only thing good that can come out of this season now is his firing. The Redskins however slowed the game down and did just enough to secure a victory. RG3 didn’t put up mind blowing numbers but he was efficient threw the air going 13 of 21 for 163 yards and a score and electric with his legs averaging 14.4 YPC on his 5 rushing attempts. Alfred Morris was the bell cow churning his 22 carries into 124 yards as the Redskins defeated the Giants on Monday Night to inch closer to the playoffs.


 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME ALLOWED BY NFL TEAM DEFENSES 

 

fantasy football points allowed by defenses per position - week 14 chart

 

 

The Atlanta Falcons turned in a valiant defensive effort as the held the second best offensive unit in check to the tune of 13 points. The Falcons were flying for revenge against the Saints, the only team to defeat them this season, and the defense did more than enough to get it on a night the offense was not clicking on all cylinders. The falcons defensive backs were able to force drew Brees into 5 interceptions without notable ballhawk Asante Samuel on the field for most of the game. When the Falcons defense can play like this they are an incredibly tough team to beat.


 

The Dallas Cowboys defense got torched by a pair of rookies, one in particular who has set the world on fire in Bryce Brown and another who is under a lot of scrutiny. Brown had another impressive day tallying 183 total yards and 2 scores. Nick Foles finally worked the ball down the field a bit more than in past games and was able to amass 251 passing yards and a score. If not for a big fumble recovery and score by rookie Morris Claiborne who knows how this game might have ended.

 


The Jets defense has had quite the roller coaster ride over the last two weeks. After being demolished by the Tom Brady led Patriots on Thanksgiving the defense was able to breathe a sigh of relief when the worst ranked offense came to town. Ryan Lindley is somehow still starting and the Jets defense licked their chops allowing him to complete under 33% of his passes for a ghastly 2.3 YPA and an INT. The defense was able to hold the entire Cardinals offense to just 137 yards and 2.5 yards per play. Luckily for fans of the NFL with the way this game went they didn’t pop up on your redzone channel very often. This dominating defensive performance allowed the Jets to jump a cool 10 spots in the points allowed ranking this week.

 


The Lions defense continues to fall as they have to face some of the best quarterbacks in the league. Andrew Luck did his best Peyton manning impression to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat on a day in which he threw 3 INT’s. The bad for the Lions however was he was able to throw for 391 yards and 4 scores and get everyone from LaVon Brazil to Donnie Avery involved. He also threw effectively to his two tight ends that were able to compile 3 catches for 76 yards and a score. The Lions might have an elite offense but their defense is overrated and they continue to fall. This week the Lions fell 6 spots all the way to 20th.

 

 

 

THE DIFFERENTIAL FOR OFFENSIVE FANTASY POINTS SCORED

VS. FANTASY POINTS ALLOWED BY THE DEFENSE


 fantasy football points differential per team - week 14 chart

 

 

Last week if you would have used this chart to pick your games you would have gone 10-6. It does pretty well when looking at the top of the rankings but when a few teams that are bad get in a battle (i.e. Jets and Cardinals) it isn’t perfect. Only one game that was picked wrong might be considered a monumental upset and that is the 49ers falling to the Rams in OT, but as we all know divisional games are just tough to predict as they are always closer than the talent levels of each team might dictate because of familiarity.

 


As the weeks have gone on there is less and less movement in the differential chart. The teams at the top look like the cream of the crop in the NFL and the teams at the bottom are all fighting for scraps against each other. The biggest movers this week were only able to move up or down two spots. The more games that are played the more idea we have an idea of a team such as the Giants who are losing their grip on the reigns of the NFC East.

 


The two biggest gainers this week each made big strides in their quest for a playoff berth. The Bengals have been on fire since their bye week and the Colts are looking tougher and tougher to beat as the weeks go by and Andrew Luck gets more snaps. These two young single callers have been making strides all season long and when the playoffs come around they will be tough outs as no team will be vying to play them.

 


The biggest fallers this week were the Detroit Lions and the Arizona Cardinals. The Lions defense has been playing weaker just as their offense has been picking up their play. The Arizona Cardinals have really been reeling since starting the season as one of the biggest surprises in the league and it all comes down to quarterback play. Ryan Lindley is flat out overmatched so bad that he makes Kevin Kolb and John Skelton look like a hall of famers.
