Start or Sit Week 14: Quarterbacks brought to you by Overtime Heroics. Fantasy players that are clear starters will not be included in this article, such as Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, and Michael Thomas. All the fantasy stats shown below will be based on a Point Per Reception (PPR) scoring format.
Start of the Week: Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. New York Jets
Starting Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fantasy playoffs may sound crazy; however, if you stream quarterbacks, it might be a good idea to take a look at him. He has scored over 20 fantasy points in each of his last two games and has a plus matchup in Week 14 against the Jets, who just lost to the 0-11 Bengals. Last time Fitzpatrick played the Jets, he put up 23.7 fantasy points. He plays the Jets, Giants, and the Bengals the next three weeks so he could be a good play throughout the whole fantasy playoffs. I would not recommend watching him play because his games are ugly; however, he can rack up fantasy points this week.
Other Good Starts:
- Ryan Tannehill vs. Oakland Raiders
- Devlin Hodges vs. Arizona Cardinals
- Jacoby Brissett vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sit of the Week: Kyler Murray vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kyler Murray takes on a tough Steelers defense this week. He is coming off a bad game against the Rams and it might not be any better this week. He only threw for 163 yards against the Rams and he also threw a pick-six. The Steelers’ defense is arguably better than the Rams’ defense so he could be in for a rough day. Kyler Murray is a very talented quarterback; however, his team is terrible, as he was sacked six times by the Rams. The Steelers defensive line is also capable of ruining a quarterback’s day. I believe the only way Kyler Murray can have a productive fantasy game against the Steelers is by creating plays with his legs.
Other Good Sits:
- Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Saints
- David Blough vs. Vikings
- Mitch Trubisky vs. Cowboys
