Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton threw four interceptions in Chicago's loss to Arizona last Sunday, making him one of the worst Fantasy football picks of the week. The Bears are expected to get rookie quarterback Justin Fields back from an injury in time for Sunday Night Football against Green Bay. Fields has struggled as well, throwing eight interceptions to just four touchdowns. He is facing an elite Packers defense, so where should he be in your Fantasy football rankings?
Another tricky decision for your Week 14 Fantasy football strategy is where to slot New Orleans quarterback Taysom Hill. He is coming off a four-interception game of his own, but it was his first start of the season. Before you lock in your Week 14 Fantasy football picks, be sure to check out the Week 14 Fantasy football predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine's model beat human experts in Fantasy football for the past several seasons especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home emptyhanded.
Last week, the model was extremely high on Vikings running back Alexander Mattison, ranking him as top-15 running back for Week 13. The result: Mattison had 124 scrimmage yards and a score to finish fourth in Fantasy points at the position last week. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.
Top Week 14 Fantasy football picks
One player the model is high on this week: Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. The star wideout might not have found the end zone yet this season, but his value has been increasing in recent weeks. Jeudy missed six games due to a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the season-opener, but he leads the team with 30 targets in the five games since then. He is coming off his best game of the season, catching four passes for 77 yards on six targets against Kansas City.
Jeudy has an ideal matchup against Detroit in Week 14, so he has plenty of value. The Lions are the fourth-worst defensive team in the NFL, allowing 380.9 yards per game. SportsLine's model projects Jeudy to come close to 70 receiving yards again this week.
And a massive shocker: Cardinals running back James Conner, who was started in 89 percent of CBS Sports Fantasy football leagues last week, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 25 at his position in Week 14. Conner and the Cardinals surprised many by looking relatively comfortable on a sloppy day in Soldier Field last week, with Conner putting up 111 scrimmage yards and a score.
He's now scored in nine of his last 10 games and gotten into the end zone a total of 14 times during that span, but now he'll have to take on a Rams defense that doesn't yield much on the ground. Los Angeles ranks second in the NFL in yards allowed per carry (3.8) and seventh in run defense while only giving up one rushing touchdown in the last three weeks.
How to set Week 14 Fantasy football rankings
The model is also calling for an under-the-radar quarterback to finish in the top seven of its Fantasy football rankings, ahead of players like Kyler Murray and Dak Prescott. This pick could be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
