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

7 of 8

Wide Receiver

Dez Bryant, @GB (72%, 12) – If the Cowboys had a QB then Bryant would never be on this list, but Bryant is only averaging 7 fantasy points per game over the last four weeks and has just one TD. Without Romo, Bryant’s talent is pretty much wasted.

Michael Crabtree, @DEN 67%, 11) – As I mentioned with Derek Carr, the Broncos have the best pass defense in the league and I just don’t see Crabtree beating Talib or Harris for decent fantasy stats this week.

Golden Tate, @STL (55%, 11) – He hasn’t had 75 yards in any of the last ten games and only has two TDs over that time period. Tate is averaging 3-4 catches and about 5o yards per game this season. That’s not enough to be worth a spot in fantasy lineups.

Brandon LaFell, @HOU (40%, 11) – Despite having 34 targets over the last four games, LaFell only has 14 catches and hasn’t had over 70 yards in any of the last four games. LaFell just can’t seem to catch. He’s seen plenty of well thrown deep balls, but just can’t seem to reel them in. LaFell might keep getting good opportunities deep, but his lack of hands will keep him from ever being a consistent fantasy asset.

Pierre Garcon, @CHI (21%, 9) – The Bears secondary has been surprisingly solid lately and they have shut down much better WRs than Garcon over the last few weeks. Garcon has struggled to get separation from even mediocre DBs year and Fuller and Porter have played very well of late. Garcon hasn’t gained more than 75 yards in any game this season and this week won’t be any different.
