Eddie Brown's fantasy football Week 14 start/sit

Eddie Brown, The San Diego Union-Tribune on

Published in Football

Obvious starters: Jordan Howard (Bears), A.J. Green (Bengals).

Who to start: Dontrelle Inman (Bears) has carved out some value as a flex candidate in PPR. Joe Mixon (Bengals) is an obvious start if he makes it through the NFL concussion protocol. The Bengals D/ST are the best streaming option this week. Andy Dalton (Bengals) has passed for multiple touchdowns in six of the last seven games. Brandon LaFell (Bengals) is a low-tier flex option in PPR.

Who to sit: The Bears have become a fantasy wasteland outside of Howard (who hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire recently). Tyler Kroft (Bengals) has become a touchdown-or-bust option.

Sleeper: If Mixon is limited or out, Giovani Bernard (Bengals) would become a premium flex option.


Obvious starters: Davante Adams (Packers), Jamaal Williams (Packers), Josh Gordon (Browns).


Who to start: The Packers D/ST can be streamed against such a turnover-prone rookie quarterback. I'm out on a limb here, but I believe Jordy Nelson (Packers) has his best game since Week 6. Despite being goose-egged against the Buccaneers, Randall Cobb (Packers) remains a solid flex candidate in PPR. Isaiah Crowell (Browns) remains a flex candidate with a positive match-up and high usage. The Packers have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends the past two weeks, making rookie David Njoku (Browns) a solid streaming option at the position.

Who to sit: After his performance against the Buccaneers, It's hard to recommend Brett Hundley (Packers), even in a great match-up such as this one. Duke Johnson (Browns) has become a low-tier flex option in PPR. Corey Coleman (Browns) was blanked in Gordon's season debut.

Sleeper: Fellow rookie Aaron Jones (Packers) appears healthy and has more game-breaking ability than Williams.
