Eddie Brown's fantasy football adds and drops for Week 14

Each week I'll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football -- I define "widely available" as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues -- and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster.

Here are my best bets for Week 14:


QB Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers (ESPN: 15 percent; Yahoo: 16 percent): Garoppolo was a speculative add for me last week. The next two weeks, he's a top streaming option at quarterback against weak secondaries like Houston and Tennessee.

WR Marquise Goodwin, 49ers (ESPN: 15 percent; Yahoo: 32 percent): Goodwin has averaged 82 yards per game in the four games since Pierre Garcon was lost for the year and now he has an actual quarterback throwing the ball to him.

WR Dede Westbrook, Jaguars (ESPN: 11 percent; Yahoo: 28 percent): The dynamic rookie is the team leader in targets over the three weeks he has been active -- getting four more than Marqise Lee.


RB Peyton Barber, Buccaneers (ESPN: 2 percent; Yahoo: 6 percent): Barber is worth a speculative add, considering he just had the most productive game of the year for any Tampa Bay running back -- 143 total yards on 27 touches -- a week after scoring two touchdowns.

RB Mike Davis, Seahawks (ESPN: 3 percent, Yahoo: 9 percent): Davis' 64 yards were the most by a Seattle running back since Chris Carson went on IR over two months ago.

BONUS: RB Giovani Bernard, Bengals (ESPN: 22 percent; Yahoo: 10 percent): If Joe Mixon misses time due to a concussion he received Monday night, Bernard will have RB2 upside against Chicago at home.

BONUS: WR Trent Taylor, 49ers (ESPN: 0.3 percent; Yahoo: 0 percent): Consider the rookie a flex option in deeper PPR leagues. He's the prototype of a slot receiver -- think Julien Edelman or Danny Amendola -- Garoppolo was used to in New England.
