2018 Daily Fantasy: DraftKings Week 14 Picks, Predictions and Sleepers

Daily Fantasy never sleeps.

The fantasy regular season is over, meaning a handful of people’s teams are done for the year and all hope seems lost. That’s where you’re wrong folks. Daily fantasy never stops which gives you the chance to win the money back that you lost in season long! With a ton of injuries opening the door for relative unknown factors, Week 14 should shape up to be one of the most interesting we’ve seen in some time.


  • Jameis Winston ($6,200)
    • Juicy matchup here for Winston and the Bucs facing the Saints at home. Tampa Bay throws the ball at a league high rate, and playing against New Orleans should garner plenty of points scored with two high scoring attacks.
  • Lamar Jackson ($5,700)
    • Here’s another QB that will be facing a high scoring offense, Jackson and Baltimore will be traveling to Kansas City. Jackson’s rushing ability gives him such a high ceiling for bonus points. Add those onto some respectable passing numbers and Lamar becomes such a weapon.
  • Josh Allen ($5,500)
    • The Wolf was keen to recommend Allen last week to fantasy owners and I like his chances at another solid game this week. Similar to Jackson, Josh Allen picks up a lot of extra yardage with his legs. And with a clear lack of receiving options Allen will often run touchdowns in himself. The New York Jets serve no threat to stopping Allen.

Running Backs:

  • Christian McCaffrey ($9,300)
    • CMC is an absolute freak. With Gurley off the main slate that leaves McCaffrey as the highest salary at running back and rightfully so. His usage is out of this world and the usage in the passing game is what makes him elite. It should be a scrappy contest against Cleveland and the Panthers receiving core is ailing with a hurt Funchess and lost Olsen.
  • Phillip Lindsay ($6,300)
    • Lindsay had his best game of the season last week versus the Bengals running like a mad man in a plus matchup. With another cake matchup in San Francisco, Lindsay should be fed often once again as one of the top YPC players in the league.
  • Justin Jackson ($3,800)
    • With Melvin Gordon out last week it was Jackson not Ekeler that took advantage of the opportunity and put up points. He looked explosive and very solid in the backfield for Los Angeles, so with Gordon unlikely to suit up again Jackson could improve on last games numbers against a weaker defense in Cincinnati.
  • Jeffery Wilson ($3,800)
    • Another RB to save some salary with, Wilson was thrust into the lead role due to the injury to Matt Breida. Wilson had 23 touches including 8 receptions on the day which are some alarming numbers from a dude nobody heard of before the week started. With Breida out again, Wilson should see feature back numbers once again.
  • Jaylen Samuels ($3,700)
    • The big cause of controversy in season long leagues due to his RB/TE eligibility, Samuels figures to get the lead role with James Conner shelved for Week 14. He caught a touchdown pass last week once Conner went out, and his dual threat abilities should fit nicely into what Steelers backs have grown accustomed to.

Wide Receivers:

  • Antonio Brown ($9,000)
    • He hasn’t been as consistent or putting up gaudy numbers at an alarming rate like 2017, but Brown finds a fantastic matchup here against Oakland. One of the worst passing defenses in the league, Brown should feast after a huge 10-154-1 stat line against the Chargers. With Conner out, Ben should be throwing more this week.
  • Keenan Allen ($7,400)
    • Now this is the Keenan Allen we all love and know. He’s been known to disappear for numerous weeks, but when he emerges boy does he make it known. 19 targets last game is a stupid high number, so imagine what he can do against an inferior Bengals defense. The only concern is they go up too much too fast.
  • Adam Humphries ($4,900) / Chris Godwin ($4,900)
    • With DeSean Jackson out last week, both Humphries and Godwin took advantage for high scoring games and touchdowns. We already mentioned we like Winston this week, and with Mike Evans likely to be matched up on Marshon Lattimore that leaves these two to run wild on the Saints DBs.
  • Cortland Sutton ($4,500)
    • The loss of Emmanuel Sanders to a torn achilles in practice was devastating, but while that door closes one swings wide open for Sutton in Denver’s offense. He’s been the #2 guy since Demaryius Thomas was shipped off to Houston, and now Sutton will have his chance to show what he’s got as top dog.
  • Bruce Ellington ($3,800)
    • His price slightly increased after a double digit performance, but Ellington has been serviceable in place of Marvin Jones for the Lions. We wonder if Kenny Golladay will be matched up with Patrick Peterson, leaving Ellington to run free in a much better matchup.

Tight Ends:

  • Travis Kelce ($6,700)
    • I don’t doubt Mahomes’ ability to move the ball against the Ravens, it’s the secondary pass catchers I’m not sold on. I’d expect Kelce to be leaned upon heavily in this game, as he’s shown just how much damage he can do for the Chiefs offense.
  • David Njoku ($3,800)
    • Sure he had a dud performance in the teams loss in Houston, but a game against Carolina who’s one of the leagues worst defending the tight end should provide a great bounce back spot.
  • Matt LaCosse ($2,700)
    • With Sanders going down in practice the other day for Denver, some pass catchers will need to step up. Heuerman is also on the shelf for the year, so plenty of doors have opened for Denver receivers.


  • Los Angeles Chargers ($3,500)
    • The Chargers finally have Joey Bosa back, are fighting for their division against the Chiefs, and get to face the awful Bengals and Jeff Driskell at home.
  • New York Giants ($2,500)
    • Mark Sanchez. That is all.
