Fantasy Football Start ’em Sit ’em Week 14
We are now at the final week of the regular season when every decision you make could decide your fantasy season. To make things even harder for fantasy players, the NFL schedule makers decided to put 6 teams on bye, in what is likely the most crucial week for fantasy players around the world.
This is why fantasy football is such a popular game. You never know what will happen from one week to the next that could propel or derail your roster in the blink of an eye. If you are in a must win situation, don’t get cute and start players who are risky. Stick with the formula that got you to this point and leave it all out on the field. Every blade of grass! See you in the playoffs…
Week 14 Start ’em
D’Onta Foreman – Panthers RB
Foreman has had the bye week to rest up and get ready for the easiest defensive matchup he will face all season against the Seahawks in Week 14. The Panthers are still very much in the thick of the playoff race and will likely keep the ball on the ground which bodes well for Foreman’s fantasy output. He is a hard nosed and tough runner who should have no problem getting into the end zone against a Seattle defense that has allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.
D’Onta Foreman Week 14 Projections: 28 rushing attempts, 144 rushing yards, 2 rushing TD’s, 3 targets, 3 receptions, 21 receiving yards

Week 14 Sit ’em
Dameon Pierce – Texans RB
Pierce has been the best rookie RB so far this season, but he faces one of the top defenses in the league in the Dallas Cowboys. Although Pierce is talented when he gets touches, he suffers from negative game scripts due to the fact that the Texans offense is one of the worst in the league. Against a high-powered Dallas offense, the Texans will be forced to abandon the run early, which doesn’t bode well for Pierce’s fantasy hopes in Week 14.
Dameon Pierce Week 14 Projections: 7 rushing attempts, 22 rushing yards, 1 target, 1 reception, 5 receiving yards, 1 fumble, 0 TD’s
