Fantasy Football Start Or Sit Week 14: "Very Worried" About Cousins, Vikings Offense Against Bucs Says Heath Cummings
(CBS Local)- Fantasy football playoffs are in full swing and optimizing your lineup is even more important than ever as you set your sights on bringing home the title. The team from Fantasy Football Today is back once more with their advice for three players you should start and three you should sit at each position in Week 14.
The start of the week is Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill who draws a matchup with the 1-11 Jacksonville Jaguars this week. Jamey Eisenberg believes that Tannehill will "light up" the Jaguars this week making him a strong fantasy play.
"I like him as a Top 8 quarterback at worst, but I think he's got Top 5 or Top 4 potential," said Eisenberg. "Love the matchup for Tannehill who had a great game against Jacksonville in Week 2 when these two teams met."
In that Week 2 contest, Tannehill threw for 239 yards with four touchdowns one of two games this season in which he's tossed four TDs in a game. Joining Tannehill in the start column for quarterbacks is Los Angeles Chargers starter Justin Herbert and Tampa Bay Buccaneers starter Tom Brady. Herbert draws the miserable Falcons defense while Brady, coming off of a bye week, gets to face the Vikings at home.
Speaking of those Vikings, their quarterback, Kirk Cousins, is on Heath Cummings' sit list for the week.
"He's been awesome of late, but it's mostly been against absolutely terrible defenses. It's mostly been at home. He's not near as good on the road this season," said Cummings. "This Tampa defense is coming off their bye. I'm very worried about Cousins and the Vikings offense."
For the rest of the position group start and sits for the week, check out the video and tune in to the Fantasy Football Today podcast.
