Russell Wilson

1. Russell Wilson @ LAC

Russell Wilson and the Broncosí passing attack havenít looked clean lately. Wilson has only thrown for over 200 yards once in his last five games. However, his fantasy production has been bolstered by his rushing abilities. Heís rushed for 30+ yards in four of his last five games and punched in a touchdown on the ground in two straight. The Broncos now take on the Chargers who allow the 4th most fantasy points to QBs. With fairly consistent rushing production and an attackable Chargersí secondary, look for Wilson to bounce back in Week 14.

2. Gardner Minshew @ CIN

Quarterback injuries are starting to pile up. If you are looking for a fill-in for Week 14, look no further than Gardner Minshew. Minshew has the privilege of taking on the Cincinnati Bengals, who have allowed big fantasy performances throughout the season. The Bengals allow the 5th most fantasy points to quarterbacks, allow explosive plays at the highest rate in the NFL, and have been torched for 30+ points three times in the last four weeks. Expect Minshew to air it out and find success against a struggling defense with a banged up secondary.

3. Jameis Winston vs. CAR

Iím going to be up-front with this one. You should not be starting Jameis Winston unless you are desperate. However, if you are desperate, Winston is a QB with a high ceiling that should be available on waivers. Winston is known for his aggressive and sometimes reckless play style as we witnessed in Week 10 when he attempted 25 passes, resulting in two touchdowns and two interceptions. Winston is liable to toss a few picks, but he certainly isnít afraid to sling the ball all over the field. This play style leads to boom or bust outcomes. But if you are down a quarterback and need to win to clinch a playoff berth, Winstonís high-ceiling may be the answer.

1. Jared Goff @ CHI

Jared Goffís worst enemy is playing away from Ford Field. In six games at home this season, Goff has scored 22.6 fantasy points per game. He scores over three points fewer on the road, averaging 19.2 points across six games. It gets even worse when considering games that are outdoors. Goff has scored 16 or fewer points in three of four outdoor games this year. Goff now faces an outdoor, road game against a Chicago defense that has looked much better in recent weeks. Be cautious with Goff this week and keep him on your bench if possible.

2. Matthew Stafford @ BAL

Matthew Stafford has been scorching hot lately, combining for seven touchdowns and 47.4 fantasy points (23.7 PPG) in the last two weeks. However, Stafford has not eclipsed 20 fantasy points this season outside of the last two weeks. He has also not thrown for 3+ TDs in a game other than the last two. Stafford has clearly been overachieving and now must head to Baltimore to face one of the leagueís best defenses. The Ravens allow the fewest fantasy points per game to QBs and I expect Stafford to see the same shutdown treatment. Keep him on your bench this week.

3. C.J. Stroud @ NYJ

It’s most likely that you will be forced to start CJ Stroud. But if you have the option, consider letting Stroud rest up on your bench this week. He will be heading to East Rutherford to face a Jets defense that can shut down any QB (5th fewest fantasy points allowed to QBs) or offense. We saw this in Week 12 when Tua Tagovailoa was held to less than 10 fantasy points. Stoud will also have to play without one of his favorite targets in Tank Dell. With a tough opponent and some offensive uncertainties following a big injury, it’s not a bad idea to keep Stroud on the bench.
