Fantasy Football Week 14: Start’em / Sit’em

5 of 8

Matt Ryan, @CAR (44%, 19) – With how bad Ryan has played the last three weeks I wouldn’t feel comfortable starting him against anyone, much less on the road against a tough Panthers D.

Matt Stafford, @STL (41%, 19) – The Lions have had trouble keeping Stafford clean at times this year and are facing one of the best D-lines in the league. After the Rams were lit up by the Cards last week, I have a feeling they will be all over Stafford this week and he doesn’t always respond to pressure well.

Derek Carr, @DEN (32%, 18) – He’s had an impressive rookie season, but the Broncos pass D is the best in the league right now and should be avoided at all costs. The potential for bad weather makes benching Carr a no-brainer.

Philip Rivers, @KC (30%, 17) – Has less than 10 fantasy points in two of his last three games, is playing in a tough road environment, and facing a Chiefs defense that has been tough on opposing QBs lately. Rivers is too inconsistent right now to trust in a difficult match-up.
