The Fantasy Bye Week Staff Writer
DFS Week 14 Plays
The playoffs have finally arrived!!! Hopefully we helped you get that “Bye Week” like we promised. If so you have some time off to play a little DFS ... which is where I come in!
Premium Plays ($7,500 or more)
Derrick Henry (TEN) $9,100: Henry is a man amongst boys this season, proving the end to last season for him wasn’t just a fluke. He’s gone over 140 yards in each of the last 3 weeks, and over 20 points in his last four games. I cannot wait to see what he does against this Oakland defense!
Solid Starts ($6,000-$7,400)
Melvin Gordon (LAC) $7,300: Gordon is back to getting a ton of work on the ground, and is up against a defense that has been torched as of late. Jacksonville has given up over 200 rushing yards in 3 of the last four games, and just gave up two rushing TD’s to Payton Barber…
Ryan Tannehill (TEN) $7,300: Since taking over in week 7 Ryan Tannehill has been QB5, and led the Titans to a 5-1 record. Over the last five weeks he is second, only to Lamar Jackson, in points per drop back with a blistering .77 ppd. He’ll be up against the Raiders defense who has all but mailed it in for the season!
Cheap Plugs ($5,900 and under)
Vance McDonald (PIT) $5,800: McDonald has had a very underwhelming year with all of the preseason hype surrounding him. Fortunately for him, it looks like the found somewhat of a competent QB that can get him the ball, and he’ll be up against the worst defense against opposing TE’s in the league.
Alexander Mattison (MIN) $5,100: Even if Dalvin Cook ends up playing this week against Detroit, he will for sure be on a pitch count. Mattison should have a big day with an uptick in work, and facing a terrible rush defense!
