NFL: Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns

That’s right folks. We’ve arrived to Week 14, what is tacitly accepted as the starting point for Fantasy Football playoffs for the majority of leagues and formats. And coinciding with this “fantasy playoff” week are several key match-ups that will also have an enormous affect on the NFL playoff picture. Which, if you had already guessed from the title, is a picture that still has the Bills and Browns on it. While there are several other games that deserve a spotlight, like the Steelers vs. Bengals. Panthers vs. Saints (LOL), Ravens vs. Dolphins, Chiefs vs. Cardinals, Seahawks vs. Eagles and the Patriots vs. my Chargers, it seems almost silly to bring up those two teams. But their season’s rest on the outcome against the Broncos (who are at home against the Bills) and an incredibly talented Colts offense led by Andrew Luck, (with Coby Fleener in the caboose, BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE HE BELONGS), against the Browns. An unlikely loss by either the Broncos and Colts could dramatcially shift the playoff picture into some kind of synergistic paridigm, only thought to exist in the most complciated of corporate and free enterprise verbiage. Yes, as you can see, the drinking got started early. Some point last week… So let’s get this Sunday started…

Week 14 Rankings have been updated for today’s games for all your roster needs. You can check them out here.

 

The Vikings have placed Jerick McKinnon on IR.

DeSean Jackson will not play against the Rams due to bruises on both of his legs.

Rashad Jennings did travel with the Giants to Nashville, so he’s still a gametime decision (he will be testing his ankle during pregame warm-ups), so keep Andre Williams on stand-by.

Despite being listed as questionable, Justin Forsett will play today against Miami.

Browns are expecting Isaiah Crowell to play despite a banged up hip.

The Jets vs. Minnesota and Atlanta vs. Green Bay have the potential for snowy conditions.

    Hey!
    If DJax sits…is that a must start for the Rams DST instead of the Vikings DST?
    The Jets will run and run and run….capping Vikings’ upside right?

    Thanks!

      @david: It’s not a must start, but I’m still liking the Rams there.

  3. Archieballs says:

    No PPR. Who do I start in the Flex, Jarvis Landry or Roddy White?

  4. Good morning Jay!

    Couple quick questions for you PPR league:
    CJ Anderson or Forsett
    Patriots D or Bills

    Thanks in advance
    Turd

    Still gotta roll with Sammy Watkins @DEN over moncrief @cle and [email protected]?
    .5 PPR I know moncrief has a floor of 0 catches and Dwayne Allen is back this week, Sammy hasn’t cleared 40 yards in what seems like a month. Which WR is the play?

    And tannehill over cam newton today?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: Yeah, still going Watkins there. And it’s a coin flip there. Probably Newton.

  6. Mguy36 says:

    12 team standard
    Pick one for my third receiver: Wayne, Robert woods, moncrief or garçon. Starting to lean towards Pierre because Jackson not playing.

    Thanks for all you’re advice this year.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mguy36: I’d rather go Moncrief there.

  7. AC says:
    (link)

    Should I start Edelman or Jarvis Landry in my PPR league?

    And am I right to start Steven Jackson over Blount this week?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @AC: Landry and it’s okay. They are about the same for me right now.

  8. rainking99 says:

    Please pick 2 for standard scoring
    RB2 and Flex

    Miller vs BALT
    Herron @ CLE
    Landry vs BALT
    Williams @ TEN (if Jennings doesn’t play)
    Ivory @ MIN
    Roddy @ GB

    At TE, I’m starting D. Walker over Cameron…..and Dwayne Allen is a free agent. Should I hold?

    Thanks for your help!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @rainking99: Herron and Landry. And yes, hold.

      • rainking99 says:

        @Jay: thanks!

        I also have Stedman Bailey.

        Keep Landry at flex?

    Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, or Eli Manning

    Flex: (1pt per 10 rush, 1pt per 20 rec, 1 PPR, +5pt at 100 yards)
    Dan Herron, Mike Evans, Brandon LaFell, Doug Martin

  10. Gamby says:

    Non PPR Jordan Cameron (sounds like he’s cleared) or C Fleener?

      Jay says:

      @Gamby: Cameron.

  11. Ryan says:

    After an incredibly difficult start to this season, I snuck into the playoffs. Up first is Peyton Manning. Ugh. Let’s go Bills!!!!

      Jay says:

      @Ryan: Good luck!

  12. dirtyd says:
    (link)

    Matt Ryan @ GB or Kaep @ Oak

    Shouldn’t Kaep bounce back vs Oakland? He had terrible games vs SEA (expected) and Wash(not sure what happened here) Matchup seems perfect.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @dirtyd: Yeah, its a sound point, but I’m still going Ryan. It’s close though.

  13. PooPoo Platter says:
    (link)

    Having TE problems (PPR) in my playoff matchup with Julius questionable. I picked up Charles Clay he’s active today do I just start him now or wait on Julius later? If Julius ends up inactive I can pick up like Tim Wright there’s very few options out there.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @PooPoo Platter: I wouldn’t mind waiting and then going Wright if you have to.

  14. Robert says:

    Andre Williams or Jonathon Stewart? Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Robert: Williams.

    Flex spot, .5 pt PPR:

    R. Jennings, Andre Williams or Moncrief? Thanks.

  16. Exactly says:
    (link)

    Any concern about starting Crowell?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Exactly: A little, but if he’s all you got, I’m fine with it.

    Hey Jay, someone stupidly dropped Detroit defense for AP. Should I grab Detroit in a 10-team for the playoffs next week & after (v. Minn & @ Chi) ? I have St Louis now, & I can drop Andre Williams as my handcuff to Jennings (as I wont even use Andre, I have R Mathews, L Murray on bench with D Murray, Ingram & R Jennings as my starters…

    Or I can hold A Williams in case something bad happens to Jennings this week & drop Sanu or J Reed instead (I have Witten)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yeah, I’m fine with that. Dropping the Rams is fine too.

  18. Yager says:
    (link)

    Who to start: Sanchez, McCoy, or Newton?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Yager: Newton.

      • Yager says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks!

  19. Nick says:

    Hey Jay, Charles Johnson (Has detroit & miami) or allen hurns (baltimore & tenn) are available. should I drop andre williams for either? I could also drop St Louis defense as you mentioned earlier…I suppose there schedule is not as good as Detroit over the next 2 weeks…

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: never mind, Charles is taken. Hurns, Decker or J Cook (dropping reed with Witten as my starter) worth a look?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Nick: Then I’d hold.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: For Johnson if you need a WR.

    Hi Jay I have another question regarding my defense. I think playing ST Louis next week vs. Arizona is a good play with Stanton at QB & no RBs (ellington out). Then week 16 (fantasy championship), St Louis has the NYG ..so I can try and grab Detroit from waivers (playing @Chi) or other options which might be better for week 16 are;

    GB @ TB
    NE @ NYJ
    Cle @ Carolina
    SD @ SF

    would you drop Sanu (want to keep A Williams in case Jennings is not 100% in my playoffs) or J Reed for any of the defenses above to hold for week 16 if I make it to fantasy championship, here is my roster;

    QB- Rodgers
    WR- Cobb, Beckham, K Allen
    RB- D Murray, R Jennings
    flex- Ingram
    TE-Witten
    Bench- A Williams, M Bryant, R Mathews, L Murray, Sanu, J Reed

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: scratch NE, open waivers, people are snipping :(

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Yeah, I like the Rams over Detroit there.

    doing fine in all the league’s i should be, except the one where i played romo and woods over cutler and m.bryant (or grabbed c.johnson instead of woods,and played him). it appears i’ll miss projections by about 80 or so (gordon/ingram/MIA/jimmy G/woods), i’ll have the lowest score of the 8 playoff teams, and be out. doing fine in the other leagues i was expected to. If Lafell doesn’t have a good rest of game Julio’s score could rub it in, unless of course Julio’s pts also suck.

    also, notice walrus AGAIN only gave Charles the ball 12 times. A little kid playing video games would know what to do here, seriously.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: yet SMITH gets 39 pass attempts. it’s alex smith!

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: only need 26.15 from julio/ryan total to win in biggest money league, that’d be pretty damn ugly if those 2 can’t get that. even if ryan does as badly as Brees (who i’m playing against in that one), julio would only need like 4-6 decent catches.

            @Jay: yikes sam shields is back. it’s probably good for me that roddy is too.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: The Cutler curse! Andy Reid sometimes forgets Charles is on the team. That can be the only rational explanation.
