NFL Fantasy Start Em, Sit Em: 20 Players to Start or Sit in Week 14

Some leagues start their playoffs this week with eight teams making the postseason. Others will start the playoffs next week with six teams in the postseason.

But if you're looking for who to start and sit this week, there's a good chance you're either fighting for a playoff spot or currently in the playoffs this week.

So we've added the top 20 players to start or sit in Week 14.

Embarrassing your friends in Fantasy or are they embarrassing you? Lucky for you, we have over $5,000 in free bets to use on the NFL! Even if your fantasy team is sucking, you can still brag about winning money!

Quarterbacks To Play in Week 14

1. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

(It's not a Call of Duty Double XP weekend, right? So make sure you're hammering Kyler Murray prop bets at DraftKings right now)

2. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions will take on the Minnesota Vikings as favorites on Sunday.

If you're a Jared Goff owner, you've got to feel pretty good about that. D'Andre Swift produced the most in a long time and is a significant threat in the passing game. Plus, Jameson Williams might get more reps next week.

All of this against the worst passing defense in the league. I'd take a chance on Goff this week.

Quarterbacks To Sit in Week 14

3. Deshaun Watson, QB, Cleveland Browns

(Hammer Deshaun Watson unders at FanDuel right now, completely risk-free. Bet up to $1,000 that Watson has another bad week and don't worry about losing!)

4. Mike White, QB, New York Jets

5. Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Deshaun Watson looked awful in his return. It looks like it might take him until next year to play like he used to.

Meanwhile, Mike White has dominated over the last two games with many passing yards. But don't bother playing him against the Bills' defense.

Lastly, Tom Brady led the Bucs to a comeback but only scored three points throughout most of the game against the Saints. He's not back.

Running Backs To Play in Week 14

6. Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys

(With the Cowboys on a three-game win streak, can Dallas keep it up this week just in time for you to win big?)

7. Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs 

(The Chiefs are going to be looking to bounce back after last week's loss and FanDuel is the place to bet on Isiah Pacheco props completely free of risk right now!)

8. D'Onta Foreman, Carolina Panthers

D'Onta Foreman has been a significant surprise for the Panthers. He ran for over 100 yards against the Broncos a couple of weeks ago.

The Panthers trust him, and if he's able to have that kind of success against the Broncos' defense, he can have that kind of success against the Seahawks this week.

Running Backs To Sit in Week 14

9. Joe Mixon RB, Cincinnati Bengals

(Joe Mixon's status is up in the air again, but even if he plays it's been Samaje Perine that has looked the sharpest this season. Fade Joe Mixon prop picks completely free of risk at FanDuel right now)

10. Jerick McKinnon, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

I don't care if Joe Mixon is healthy this week. Samaje Perine has outplayed Joe Mixon. Now the lineup will reflect that. The Bengals are on a huge winning streak without Mixon, and Perine has done many things that Mixon hasn't done this year.

Even if Mixon is back, keep him on your bench.

We are offering all new MyOC Premium users a 7-day free trial when they sign up. Don't worry if you have Joe Mixon on your team because the MyOC Premium team will give you the best bets and win you more money in the free 7-day trial than your fantasy team will lose!

Wide Receivers To Play in Week 14

11. Garrett Wilson, New York Jets

(Usually, playing a Jets wide receiver, or any player for that matter, is a recipe for disaster. But at DraftKings, you can hammer Garrett Wilson and the Jets and turn $5 into $150 right now)

12. Joshua Palmer, Los Angeles Chargers

I expected these two receivers to dominate last week, and now I've got them on my list again this week.

Joshua Palmer has been "the guy" since Mike Williams went down again. He just had 11 targets against the Raiders, and although he didn't score a touchdown or have a huge reception that went for a ton of yards, the volume is there, especially for keeper leagues.

Plus, Garrett Wilson is now a must-start with Mike White under center. It's not always going to be pretty, but he's undoubtedly the number one target and will get plenty of volume.

Is the Joshua Palmer and Justin Herbert connection a thing? Bet on the Chargers or Dolphins to win and get 30/1 odds with this DraftKings promo!

Wide Receivers To Sit in Week 14

13. George Pickens, Pittsburgh Steelers

14. Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos 

(The Broncos' offense is the worst in the NFL. Luckily for them, Russell Wilson's contract only has a million years left on it. Head over to DraftKings now to fade Wilson, the Broncos and Jerry Jeudy this week and turn $5 into $150)

15. Devin Duvernay, Baltimore Ravens

George Pickens has been complaining about his targets as of late. That's not going to get him the ball anymore.

Meanwhile, Jerry Jeudy added 65 yards receiving on four targets. That Denver Broncos offense has been absolutely dreadful with Russell Wilson under center. Don't try and sneak any Broncos player into your lineup this week against the Chiefs.

If you're streaming any of these tight ends in fantasy, you probably need to win your money back elsewhere. Luckily, Draftkings has a 30/1 offer on any Week 13 moneyline!

Tight Ends To Play in Week 14

16. Gerald Everett, Los Angeles Chargers

17. Foster Moreau, Las Vegas Raiders

Everett earned a season-high 80 yards receiving against the Raiders last week on six targets and five receptions.

Meanwhile, Foster Moreau didn't have the same success last week, but he's been consistently playing and earning a ton of snaps. He's also constantly involved in the offense and should bounce back this week with Darren Waller still unavailable.

Tight Ends To Sit in Week 14

18. Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams

19. Daniel Bellinger, New York Giants

(If you think Daniel Bellinger is going to be the answer in New York against the 11-1 Eagles, then you're in for a rude awakening. Fade the Giants and Bellinger at DraftKings with a chance to make $150 from just a $5 bet)

20. Chigoziem Okonkwo, Tennessee Titans

None of these three tight ends has a serious ability to earn big-time plays down the field. Higbee has John Wolford as his quarterback.

Meanwhile, Bellinger and Okonkwo aren't going to earn heavy yardage after the catch despite solid production last week.
