Name one player that you will likely have in your DraftStreet lineup for Week 14. Why do you like him?
 
DEMARCO MURRAY (RB, DAL) – $12,174
“Lather, rinse, repeat. It is that simple. See who is playing the Bears, see if that running back has a pulse, play said running back. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Murray is extremely talented and Jason Garrett looks to be getting Murray more involved, but those are really just bonuses to an already good play.”
Dan Gaspar, Fantasy Insiders
 
“Whatever running back faces Chicago, you start that running back. This week its DeMarco Murray. Chicago has allowed 120 or more yards in seven straight games and 150+ in 3 straight games to the opposing teams running back. In that same 7 game span they have allowed running backs to score 10 times. I have DeMarco ranked as my number two running back this week. ”
Ryan Hodge, The Fantasy Bums
 
DESEAN JACKSON (WR, PHI) – $10,945
“The Detroit Lions are getting torched by WR1s this year, and Philly’s offense is clicking under the leadership of QB Nick Foles. After a dismal performance against Washington last week, DeSean Jackson’s DraftStreet salary has been adjusted to a very enjoyable $10,945. In addition, several higher priced WRs are facing stout match-ups or weather conditions that make their premium less than thrilling. With Foles averaging 250yds and 2tds a game over the last three weeks, Jackson is positioned to cross the century mark and add a score in this match-up against an extremely generous pass D. Well on his way to a career year, expect Jackson to fill in nicely as your WR1 and save you some cash to beef up flex positions in your weekly lineup.”
Nathan Miller, Revelation Sports
 
RILEY COOPER (WR, PHI) – $8,115
“Love Cooper’s matchup this week as the Lions and Eagles should be in an uptempo fast paced game. I expect him to clear 100 yards receiving again this week, while possibly hauling in a TD, putting him in the 18-20 point range over at DraftStreet, making him an excellent value at the price given”
KJ, Fantasy Team Advice
 
KENDALL WRIGHT (WR, TEN) – $8,543
“At only $8,543, Wright represents the best value on that board. He’s had at least 6 catches in every game for the last month and the Titans are primed to trail the Denver Bronco’s for most of the Sunday’s contest. Fitzpatrick targets Wright relentlessly and I’m projecting Fitzpatrick over 35 pass attempts. Versus Denver’s suspect defense, Wright is a phenomenal play at this price point.”
Davis Mattek, Fantasy Insiders
 
Joe Flacco (QB, BAL) – $9,725
“I’m loving Flacco at home against the Vikings, who are #32 in QB aFPA, meaning they are the #1 matchup for QBs. At only $9725, Flacco is a steal. I’ll likely be stacking him with Torrey Smith ($10,022), although Torrey himself isn’t a great value.”
Josh Moore, 4for4
