FanDuel NFL DFS Lineup Picks for Week 14 - Daily Fantasy Football


As we head into the last four weeks of the year, some of the best games of the season are upon us. For those who haven't made a dent in DFS contests, now is the time to get on track. In Week 14, Fanduel has 13 games listed under the "Main Slate," with Indianapolis at Tampa and Kansas City at New England both projected to be the highest-scoring contests of the day.

In this article, I will be providing you with daily fantasy football picks in FanDuel for December 8, 2019 (Week 14). These lineups can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. Be sure to also consult the NFL Depth Charts and Snap Counts for more critical information this week.

FanDuel Quarterbacks - Week 14 Picks

Lamar Jackson - QB, @ BUF ($9,000)

Jackson is worth a mention here because most of those partaking in DFS contests on Sunday will be scared off by his matchup against a tough Bills Defense, and while this is a logical thought, we have to remember that we are talking about a guy who will likely (should) win this year's MVP. All eyes will be on the sophomore quarterback in Week 14, and you can bet he will be anxious to put all of the doubters to rest. He has recorded at least 28.62 fantasy points in five of his last seven games, and though he may see a slight dip against Buffalo, you could get a leg-up on everyone else, especially since ownership will be a little less than usual.

Andy Dalton - QB, @ CLE ($7,000)

Dalton was benched at the end of October in favor of rookie quarterback Ryan Finley, but after he played miserably over his three inaugural starts, the longtime Bengals' signal-caller was back under center in Week 13. While he had just one touchdown toss against the Jets, the veteran has played well against the Browns throughout his tenure in the league, recording 27 touchdowns and only 12 picks to go along with a 64.1 completion percentage in 15 career meetings. There is some risk here (obviously), but the Browns are semi-vulnerable against opposing quarterbacks, and it doesn't hurt that John Ross will be back after missing some time with a chest injury.

 

FanDuel Running Backs - Week 14 Picks

Derrick Henry - RB, @ OAK ($9,100)

Henry carries a questionable tag heading into Week 14 due to a bum hamstring, but with the Titans scratching to remain in the playoff picture, he should be on the field against the Raiders. With the team dealing with some injuries on the receiving end, most notably to Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown, who are both also questionable, Henry should stay highly involved against a Raiders Defense that was crushed by the Chiefs in Week 13. Of course, as is the case with injuries, be sure to monitor his status leading up until kickoff.

Devonta Freeman - RB, vs. CAR ($6,000)

Freeman made his return on Thanksgiving after sitting out a few weeks a foot injury but only managed to finish with 8.4 fantasy points. While Freeman has been mostly a disappointment this year, he has flashed signs of life at times. He did get 17 touches against New Orleans last week, which was a good sign, and could see some additional targets from Matt Ryan on Sunday if any combination of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, or Russell Gage aren't able to play after only practicing in a limited fashion on Wednesday. The Panthers have been consistently horrendous against the run in 2019, allowing a second-worst 29.84 fantasy points per game, so look to Freeman as a guy with a promising upside, though this pick is not without risk.

 

FanDuel Wide Receivers - Week 14 Picks

Devante Parker - WR, @ NYJ ($7,200)

Parker went crazy in Week 13 against the Eagles, finishing with seven catches for 159 yards and two touchdowns. He has really stepped up to the plate as of late, especially with the season-ending knee injury to Preston Williams, and has a total of 41 targets over the last four weeks. The Jets Defense has struggled against opposing receivers this season, allowing a ninth-worst 37.90 fantasy points per game, so there is no reason why Parker shouldn't be in everyone's fantasy lineup on Sunday.

James Washington - WR, @ ARI ($6,700)

Washington may be the only viable receiver for the Steelers on Sunday against Arizona if JuJu Smith-Schuster remains out with a concussion as well as a knee injury. Washington doesn't receive an abundance of targets consistently but will definitely be a threat for a big-gain and/or a touchdown against an atrocious Cardinals Defense. His price has increased dramatically, but after racking up 209 yards and two touchdowns in his previous two outings, it isn't that bad.

 

FanDuel Tight Ends - Week 14 Picks

Travis Kelce - TE, @ NE ($7,100)

Kelce has been on a roll over the last two weeks, accruing 182 yards on 12 catches. He has a touchdown in three of his previous five games and has been targeted at least eight times in all but one game on the year. The Patriots Defense is scary, but just like in the case of Lamar Jackson, most people will be apprehensive about utilizing his services in Week 14. However, making calls like that can make or break a tournament lineup.

 

FanDuel Defenses - Week 14 Picks

Chiefs Defense - DEF, @ NE ($3,200)

The Chiefs Defense recorded 22 points against the Raiders in Week 13, finishing with two sacks, two interceptions, a fumble recovery, and a defensive touchdown. The Patriots offense is a shell of what they once were, and for the price, rolling with Kansas City on Sunday could pay off tremendously if you are willing to take the chance.
