The Playoff Push – Fantasy Football Aww’s And Naw’s Week 14

Aww Quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (away vs Oakland Raiders) Tannehill is quietly having a great last three weeks of multiple touchdowns and it should continue against the Raiders, who’s defense is fourth worst against opposing quarterbacks.


Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles (home vs. New York Giants) – With the Cowboys loss to the Bears, Wentz should be extra hyped and ready to put big numbers at home against the Giants on Monday night.


Naw Quarterbacks

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (home vs. Pittsburgh Steelers) – Murray has hit the rookie wall in his past two games, throwing an average of 155 yards. The Steelers’ defense will be ready to contain him as they have been red hot as of late.


Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (home vs. Baltimore Ravens) – I’m not saying that Allen will have bad fantasy numbers in a must win for the Bills. Just don’t expect three to four touchdowns as he will have to rely on his legs for production.


Aww Running Backs

Kareem Hunt, Cleveland Browns (home vs. Cincinnati Bengals) – The Bengals’ defense has allowed the eighth most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Hunt has been solid since his return from suspension and while Nick Chubb is still the man, Hunt is still a force with his all-around game.


Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons (home vs. Carolina Panthers) – Even though Freeman has not yet scored a rushing touchdown this season, I like his chances in this home matchup against the Panthers this weekend.


Naw Running Backs

Ronald Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs. Indianapolis Colts) – Coach Bruce Arians told the media that Jones is still the lead back but I’m not buying it anymore. With the fantasy playoffs here, Jones is just too risky to trust at this point.


Jonathan Williams, Indianapolis Colts (away vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – With the return of Marlon Mack, you can pretty much sit Williams or even drop him in leagues.


Aww Wide Receivers

Alshon Jeffery, Philadelphia Eagles (home vs. New York Giants) – Last week against the Miami Dolphins, Jeffrey had a welcome back party with 137 yards on nine catches. He should have strong numbers on Monday night against the Giants in a must win home game.


Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams (home vs. Seattle Seahawks) – Woods still does not have a receiving touchdown but all signs are pointing at him to finally get one with last week’s performance against the Cardinals.


Naw Wide Receivers

Marquise Brown, Baltimore Ravens (away vs. Buffalo Bills) – The Bills’ defense has allowed just five receiving touchdowns to opposing wideouts this season, so the odds don’t look great for Hollywood.


Tyrell Williams, Oakland Raiders (home vs. Tennessee Titans) – Williams last two games total: three catches for 27 yards on ten targets. What happened to his touchdown streak of five straight games he played? Seems like quarterback Derek Carr has forgotten about him.


Aww Tight Ends

Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts (away vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – With fellow teammates Eric Ebron and T.Y. Hilton out, Doyle is going to be a hot commodity for the rest of the season. Last week against the Titans, Doyle had 73 receiving yards on six receptions and should continue to receive plenty of targets against the Buccaneers.


Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings (home vs. Detroit Lions) – Rudolph has been on fire over the past four weeks, with double digit fantasy points and five touchdowns. Even if wide receiver Adam Thielen returns from injury, Rudolph should still get red zone looks this weekend against the Lions.


Naw Tight Ends

Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens (away vs. Buffalo Bills) – The Bills have allowed the fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season and will limit Andrews pass catching abilities, knowing he is one of Lamar Jackson’s favorite targets.


Aww Team Defense

Green Bay Packers (home vs. Washington Redskins) – Always take a chance on a defense when a rookie quarterback is starting. Especially on the road in the frozen tundra.


Naw Team Defense

Buffalo Bills (home vs. Baltimore Ravens) – The Bills have a hard time stopping the run and that’s what the Ravens will do the whole game.
