Hello everyone, and welcome to Week 14 of the regular season. For most of you, this is the start of the playoffs in most leagues. Hopefully the work myself, Jay, Matt, and the rest of the fantastic staff at Razzball helped you get to this stage. If not, it’s Matt fault!
Let’s get to it!
I love every part of the Oakland offense this week. This Chiefs defense is not very good at all, giving up the most air yards and aDOT to opposing offenses, and just struggling in every aspect, both against the pass and on the ground. Mix in the absence of Marcus Peters, and I want Derek Carr, Marshawn Lynch and Michael Crabtree this week.
Although this will depend on the status of Doug Martin, Peyton Barber saw a crap-ton of carries last week in Green Bay, and should do the same moving forward (although leave it to Dirk Koetter to ruin this opportunity), and has a great matchup against the run-funnel that is the Lions defense. He is at home, and I think this game could be close for enough moments for Barber to have a good volume game.
Sticking in this same game, I really do like the Lions offense in this matchup. We will have to see what Matthew Stafford’s hand looks like in the coming days, but as for now, let’s lock in the Lions in this juicy matchup against the Bucs secondary. Jones should have a field day.
That about does it for me. My apologies for the late rankings post, I have been absolutely crammed recently, but please, if you have any questions about your team for the first round of the playoffs, don’t hesitate to leave one below, and myself, Matt and Jay will be answering your questions all weekend long.
