Rankings of quarterbacks
Trusting Alex Smith? Dave and I have Alex Smith as a quarterback for the top five, while Jamey has him down in 11th place. Still, that's higher than any of us classifying him in Week 13. Smith set the fires on fire. Raiders for 342 yards and three touchdowns earlier this season, but that was on the road, where it has been strangely much better this season.
Banking Studs: It's difficult to qualify your players in the playoffs, but that's exactly what we suggest with Cam Newton and Kirk Cousins. None of us has Cousins in the top 14 and only Dave believes that Cam Newton is a definitive starter this week. Both quarterbacks qualify within the top six for the season, but they have miserable confrontations in Week 14.
What's up with Jameis Winston? Dave and Jamey have Winston in 12th and 14th respectively. I have it third. That might be strange since I'm the guy who once compared Winston to Blake Bortles. All of my classifications start with the numbers, so here they are:
- Project to Tampa Bay to score 27 points this week at home against the Lions. The Bucs have scored 79 percent of their offensive touchdowns on the air this season.
- Winston averages 7.5 yards per attempt. That is exactly what the Lions have allowed this year. Multiply that by the 38 pass attempts I expect (Tampa Bay has a 61/39 pass / race division this season) and an expectation of 288 passing yards is reached.
Running Back Rankings
We Love Lamar: Miller is back in the top eight in week 14 and that probably sounds weird. He has not had many high-profile games this year, but he has been remarkably consistent, with just one game under seven fantasy points throughout the season. He will face the 49ers in Week 14. While the 49ers did a good job against Jordan Howard last week, they still have handed the third highest number of Fantasy points to runners this season.
Bring the backup copies: Giovani Bernard, Peyton Barber, Kerwynn Williams, Mike Davis. These were exactly the guys you expected to be aimed at the Fantasy playoffs, right? Well, assuming the incumbents stay on the sidelines, they will all be relevant Fantasy options in Week 14. We all have Bernard and Barner in the top 24, and we agree that Mike Davis is an excellent flexible option. Williams is more of a wild card, but assuming Adrian Peterson is out again, I like him as a n. ° 2 of low quality against a destroyed Titans defense.
Is it Jay Ajayi's week? I've been the short guy in Ajayi most weeks since he came to Philadelphia, but I feel the tide is starting to change. My impression was that the Eagles preferred to save Ajayi's heavy workload for the playoffs and before Week 13 they had not really needed it. But after a first-half jolt against Seattle, the Eagles left with more Ajayi and less Legarrette Blount, as Ajayi led the Eagles in running plays for the first time all season. This is what I expect:
- I give Ajayi 40 percent of the team's carries in week 14 to five yards per carry. That may seem like a lot, but he averaged 7.9 since he arrived. The Eagles as an average team of 4.6 YPC and the Rams have been atrocious against the race, yielding 4.8. That brings me to an expectation of 63 yards on the ground for Ajayi. I also have an expectation of two catches for 15 yards.
- The Eagles have an implicit Vegas total of 24.5, I'm expecting them to score 24 points. The Eagles as a team have scored about a quarter of their offensive touchdowns on the ground. I have the team involved for 1.1 touchdowns on the ground with Ajayi at 60 percent to score a ground touchdown or receiver.
- 78 total yards with 60 percent chances to score put him in a position similar to that of Frank Gore and Mike Davis, with Ajayi with a slight upside advantage.
Wide Receiver Ranks
Looking for a good victory in Week 14? Marquesa test. Marquise Goodwin is a top-25 wide receiver for the three of us and I have the highest in 14th place. The 49ers receiver has at least six Fantasy points in each of his last four games and caught the eight of your goals in the first game of Jimmy Garoppolo. In week 14, he faces a Texans defense that delivers 14.5 yards per reception to wide receivers, the third worst record in the league. You can start with confidence.
Avoiding Lions and Accounts? Starting on Tuesday, we expect Jake Rudock to start for the Lions and Nathan Peterman for the Bills. And I want exactly zero exposure to these pass games. I do not have a Lions or Bills receiver in my top 36, although Dave and Jamey are a little more optimistic. Dave has Marvin Jones in 23rd place, while Jamey has Jones and Golden Tate in his top 25. We'll update them before Thursday night, but if neither Stafford nor Taylor have practiced they should be prepared to start Thursday's receivers. at night Ted Ginn and Mohamed Sanu over the receivers of the Lions.
Have you rated Sterling Shepard where?!?! Sterling Shepard is back. Eli Manning is back. And Shepard is back in my top 10. Dave and Jamey have him classified as a low-end number 2, so they like Shepard, but they do not love him like me. So, why do I have it so high? Again, the numbers:
- Manning and Shepard have played three complete games together this season without Odell Beckham. In those three games, Shepard has received 26 percent of the team's goals. As I expect Eli Manning to throw the ball 38 times in this game, that gives him nine goals.
- Shepard has caught 75 percent of his Manning goals this season and averaged 12.5 yards per reception. Keeping those rules would put him around seven catches for 90 yards.
- The Giants are involved with 18.5 points for Las Vegas this week and have scored 78 percent of their touchdowns by air. With Shepard projected to represent almost 40 percent of the receiving yards of the team, I have it with a 70 percent chance of reaching the end zone.
Tight End Rankings
GROSS: Without Rob Gronkowski (suspension) and Zach Ertz (concussion) the ratings in the tight end look even worse than normal. What's worse, there's no consensus after Travis Kelce. I prefer Hunter Henry, who comes from a total of nine goals, against a good fantasy match at home against Washington. Still, I do not feel anything right with Henry (or anyone else on this list) being my tight end No. 2.
SIMPLY LOST: These are the next three in the ranking for each analyst, in if you need a transmitter:
