Max’s NFL Week 14 DFS Picks

Week 13 wasn’t too bad for Mad Max. I cashed in both of my DFS tournaments with strong performances by my stack of Cousins and Thielen. I got big points from value plays David Montgomery, Robert Woods and Keke Coutee. Darren Waller was absolutely nuts last week too.

What kept me out of bigger money was a whiff by Derek Henry and a goose egg on my risk of taking Jimmy Graham.

In my standard league, my fraud of a team won once again. That improves my team to 11-2 with one more week remaining in the regular season. I beat up on the other 10-2 (now 10-3) team in the league but his team is stacked. So I fear much like some other fraud teams I know, the playoffs will catch up with me.


NFL Week 14 DFS Picks

I can’t help but think that revisiting my stack from last week is the way to go again this week. Kirk Cousins and Adam Thielen (or Justin Jefferson) should put up big numbers against the Tampa Bay secondary. The Bucs give up 256 yards per game in the air but more recently its been: 462 (Mahomes), 376 (Goff), and 222 + 4 TDs (Brees). They were able to hold Teddy Bridgewater and Aaron Rodgers in check this season so maybe they step up this week against Cousins.

But with Kirk on a hot streak right now, it’s hard to pass him up.


NFL Week 14 DFS Picks

QB: Ryan Tannehill (TEN) – In his loss to the Browns, Tannehill threw for 389 yards and 3 TDs. And the Browns defense is much better than Jacksonville’s. The Jaguars give up lots of fantasy points to QBs so maybe value stack Tannehill with Corey Davis and spend elsewhere.

Another value QB to consider is Old Man Rivers in Indy. Rivers isn’t as prolific as he has been in the past but is usually good for over 275 yards and 2 TDs each game and he’s playing a Raiders’ defense that can be beaten in the air (ask Sam Darnold about that).

RB: David Montgomery (CHI) – My lineup will look somewhat similar as it did last week with Montgomery getting another nod as a value RB this week. He rewarded me last week and he’s been playing much better since Trubisky has taken over at QB. He’s averaging 4.1 yards per carry and faces a Texans’ rush defense that gives up 151 yards per game on the ground (which ranks second last – just above the Cowboys).

WR:  Tyler Boyd (CIN) – My main reason here is the Cowboys’ defense. They give up big plays and give up points. Whatever QB the Bengals have out there this week should be able to connect with Boyd on some yards and TDs.


NFL Week 14 DFS Picks

QB: Kyler Murray (ARZ) – The Rams defense held Murray to 173 yards in the air. Yes, he still had 3 TDs but for what you pay for him, you need more yards in the air and ground from Murray. He plays a tougher Giants defense this week that don’t give up a lot of points per game and were able to shutdown Russell Wilson this past week.

RB: Devin Singletary (BUF) – Honestly, don’t like any running backs in this game. The Steelers will be apt to throw on Buffalo and Buffalo will get more in the air than on the ground against the Steelers. Still, Conner or Snell have a bit more upside than Singletary does because Tomlin never abandons the run like Sean McDermott does.

WR: Keke Coutee (HOU) – He had a solid week last week so his cost is increasing. I think a lot of people will jump on him for a repeat performance but he’s got a tough matchup against the Bears (if the Bears defense actually shows up).


NFL Week 14 DFS Picks

I’m a fan of the Washington defense against the 49ers this week. Washington is 4th in the league in total yards allowed per game and has improved to 8th fewest points allowed per game after strong outing against the Steelers (17), Cowboys (16), and Bengals (9).

The Niners 24 points against the Bills this past week has been their most amount of points since scoring 27 against the Seahawks a month ago. So it should be a good week for the Washington defense to keep the score low and possibly get an INT off Nick Mullens.
