As we begin week 14 of the NFL season, I hope to answer your fantasy playoff start & sit questions with one of the most important decisions: who to start at the quarterback position. This is a crucial week that puts your entire season on the line. You can’t win a championship without going through the playoffs first, and this is why preparation for this point in time is so important. Having a quarterback with a very favorable schedule during this time is almost a cheat code to winning a championship. I will give you a few suggestions based on the matchup of who to start, and a few suggestions on who to sit. Thank you for reading my articles all season, and hopefully, my suggestions have led you to make a playoff run.
Sam Darnold at Seattle Seahawks
It is very difficult for me to recommend starting a quarterback on a winless team, but sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do and this matchup is simply too enticing to pass up. The Seattle Seahawks, though playing better as of late, are allowing the most passing yards to quarterbacks in the league. This is an opportunity to take advantage of a very juicy matchup and put your faith in Sam Darnold for the fantasy football playoffs. Start him in a situation that could benefit the GM that decides to put their faith in this player.
Tom Brady VS Minnesota Vikings
Coming off of their bye week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look at this as a get right game that will put them right back into the playoff hunt. Look for a lot of passing from Tom Brady, especially if his star receiver Chris Godwin can return from his finger injury. With the team coming off of an extended amount of rest, this should be the case and Tom Brady should have his full complement of weapons available for this game. Start him with confidence to get your playoff run started on the right track.
Kyler Murray at New York Giants
Kyler Murray has been struggling as of late, especially in the rushing department in which he was such an asset. It will be very difficult for him to get back on track against a New York Giants team that has been playing inspired football as of late. With their upset victory last week over the Seattle Seahawks, they look to continue their defensive dominance in this game. Said Kyler Murray if at all possible and find a replacement. This will be crucial for your playoff push.
Jared Goff VS New England Patriots
What we have seen last week from the New England Patriots defense was complete dominance. That does not look to change with them coming off of a short week and playing in the same building. We can look towards a lower scoring game with a large amount of running the football on both sides. Find a replacement if you are in the first round of the playoffs, Because this is exactly the type of matchup that will take you out from having a successful playoff run.
