It looks like our luck has finally turned. If you followed our advice last week, you should have won your 50/50 contests. Let’s keep that momentum going into Week 14. Here are my Locks, Busts and Bargain Player of the week.
Russell Wilson – The Seahawks will travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers. Look for a lot of big explosive plays to come from Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks offense against one of the weakest defenses in the NFL. The Packers secondary has been decimated due to injuries this season. Wilson should have 300 total yards and 3 TDs.
Devonta Freeman – Atlanta has the best offense in the NFL right now. Look for those numbers to continue against a questionable LA Rams defense. The Rams have given up multiple receiving TDs to running backs in the last 3 weeks, and look for Freeman to capitalize on that. Freeman should have around 125 total yards and a TD.
Odell Beckham – Beckham has really heated up over the last month and is finally playing like a top fantasy football draft pick. Look for the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants game to be one of the higher scoring games of the weekend. Look for Beckham to tear up a questionable Cowboys secondary. Beckham should finish with around 140 receiving yards and a TD.
Devontae Booker ($4800) – The Broncos offensive line is a big part of the issue that Booker is averaging less than 3 YPC. But, Booker has also been losing playing time over the last few weeks. With the recent signing of Justin Forsett (RB), look for Booker to receive even less work over the last part of the season. Booker also faces the 5th ranked rushing defense of the Titans.
Jordan Reed ($5900) – When Reed is on the field he is a beast. Arguably a top 3 TE in the game when healthy. However, it is that time of the year where Reed is not healthy. He missed last week due to a separated shoulder, and could miss this week too. Even if Reed plays this week, Reed should be more of a decoy than the beast he normally is.
Cam Newton ($7200) – Newton just has not looked like his self this season. The entire Panthers team look lost this season. Newton will take on the underrated San Diego Chargers defense. Ever since Joey Bosa joined the Chargers defense, they have really turned it around. Look for that trend to continue against a struggling Panthers team.
Jason Witten ($3100) – Witten has had an inconsistent season to say the least. But if there are two games a season that you can count on Witten, it is against the New York football Giants. Witten will be targeted often by Dak Prescott who will be dealing with the vicious pass rush of the Giants. Look for 75 yards and a TD this weekend from Witten. Good luck!
