Frank Ammirante | December 5th, 2019 

It’s playoff time! Hopefully, you were able to cruise through the season en route to a first-round bye. If not, let’s get you through this first round. The key to success in the fantasy playoffs is to stick with your gut and make moves with confidence. Don’t blindly start the bigger name – go with who you believe will produce more. Let’s guide you through this process with some week 14 rankings.

Quarterbacks

19Jimmy Garoppoloat Saints
20Philip Riversat Jaguars
21Jacoby Brissettat Buccaneers
22Drew Breesvs. 49ers
23Ryan Fitzpatrickat Jets
24Andy Daltonat Browns

Jackson has proven to be matchup-proof, producing in tough match-ups against the Patriots and 49ers. He’s QB1 despite having to face a tough Bills defense. The dark horse for QB1 is Ryan, who should benefit from the long layoff following the Thanksgiving game. He gets Austin Hooper back this week, which will help. Look for Ryan to have a big game against a mediocre Panthers defense.

31Kenyan Drakevs. Steelers
32Latavius Murrayvs. 49ers
33Carlos Hydevs. Broncos
34Patrick Lairdat Jets
35Duke Johnsonvs. Broncos
36Royce Freemanat Texans

McCaffrey had a down game by his standards against the Redskins. Look for him to bounce back in a likely shootout against the Falcons. The dark horse for RB1 is Freeman – the Panthers are getting gashed in the run game and this is going to be a high-scoring contest with multiple touchdown opportunities.

43James Washingtonat Cardinals
44Robby Andersonvs. Dolphins
45Allen Lazardvs. Redskins
46Terry McLaurinat Packers
47Anthony Millervs. Cowboys
48Marquise Brownat Bills

Adams has returned to form, which is great news for Rodgers and the Packers. He takes over WR1 in a great matchup against the Redskins. The dark horse for WR1 is Beckham – we’re still waiting for his blow-up game and this might finally be the one, as he takes on a mediocre Bengals secondary.

Tight Ends
RankNameOpponent
   
1George Kittleat Saints
2Travis Kelceat Patriots
3Zach Ertzvs. Giants
4Austin Hoopervs. Panthers
5Hunter Henryat Jaguars
6Darren Wallervs. Titans
7Mark Andrewsat Bills
8Jack Doyleat Buccaneers
9Jared Cookvs. 49ers
10Mike Gesickiat Jets
11Ryan Griffinvs. Dolphins
12Evan Engramat Eagles
13Kyle Rudolphvs. Lions
14Vance McDonaldat Cardinals
15Greg Olsenat Falcons
16Dallas Goedertvs. Giants
17O.J. Howardvs. Colts
18Noah Fantat Texans
19Jacob Hollisterat Rams
20Tyler Higbeevs. Seahawks
21Jimmy Grahamvs. Redskins
22Cameron Bratevs. Colts
23Jason Wittenat Bears
24Foster Moreauvs. Titans

Kittle has a better matchup than Kelce, so he takes over TE1 in a potential shootout against the Saints. The dark horse for TE1 is McDonald, a preseason darling who has been a major disappointment – he gets a chance to rectify this with a dream matchup against the Cardinals who have struggled against tight ends.

D/STs
RankTeamOpponent
   
1Pittsburgh Steelersat Cardinals
2Cleveland Brownsvs. Bengals
3Philadelphia Eaglesvs. Giants
4New York Jetsvs. Dolphins
5New England Patriotsvs. Chiefs
6Baltimore Ravensat Bills
7Green Bay Packersvs. Redskins
8San Francisco 49ersat Saints
9Tampa Bay Buccaneersvs. Colts
10Tennessee Titansat Raiders
11Minnesota Vikingsvs. Lions
12Atlanta Falconsvs. Panthers

The Steelers defense has been the most consistent D/ST in Fantasy Football, aside from the Patriots and 49ers. They take over D/ST1 against a struggling Cardinals offense. The dark horse for D/ST1 is the Jets, who should have opportunities for turnovers against Fitzpatrick.
