    NFL Week 14 Daily Fantasy Targets (12/09/16)

    By Frank Brank @realfbra


    Quarterback


    Cash Game




    Jameis Winston's floor is already pretty low. A large percentage of the Buc's plays are passing and to top it off, they'll get the Saints secondary this week. There's only been one game in which Winston didn't throw a touchdown pass this season. The Saints rank third from worst in yards per attempt passing and have allowed nearly 277 yards per game through the air. If you can afford it, use Winston with this week's highest priced receiver, Mike Evans.

    Tournament: Eli Manning (DK: $5,500, FD: $7,700)



    Eli Manning is coming off of a bad game in chilly Pittsburgh last week. He did throw for two touchdowns but only accounted for 195 yards and made a handful of poor decisions. However, Eli will get the Cowboys defense this week who will almost certainly have a lack of pass rush as they try to contain the lack of pass rush. The Cowboys have only sacked opposing quarterbacks in 4.6% of dropbacks. Manning should be decently low-owned this week and should have the opportunity to put up some yardage.


    Running Back

    Cash Game




    LeSean McCoy is one of the most lucrative fantasy options every week. This week is no change. McCoy has gained a career high 5.5 yards per carry this season. As he's gotten healthier and Buffalo's receivers have remained less than 100%, McCoy has gotten only more usage. The Steelers rank about league average in most statistical categories.

    Tournament



    With Chris Ivory questionable and Denard Robinson confirmed out, T.J. Yeldon becomes the lead back for the Jaguars. Unfortunately, Blake Bortles will be going up against the Vikings top notch secondary so scoring may be tough to come by. That's why Yeldon becomes a tournament play. He should get a large portion of carries against a Vikings defensive front seven that actually ranks in the bottom nine in yards per rush. Yeldon's low price tag makes him a decent option for tournaments.


    Wide Receiver

    Cash Game




    Odell Beckham is always going to be decently high-owned but we're especially high on him this week. He'll face a poor Dallas defense that'll give Eli plenty of time to let Beckham get downfield. Beckham didn't make all the highlight reels last week but he did catch 10 of 16 targets for 100 yards. Beckham has only seen four games where he didn't receive double digit targets and no games where he received less than seven targets. As the Giants receivers continue to be less than 100%, Beckham's workload should only continue.

    Tournament



    Emmanuel Sanders started the season on a tear. He's only had one standout game in the last six weeks which should drive his ownership down. However, he's still getting a ton of targets. Facing one of the better pass defenses in Jacksonville last week, Sanders only caught three of nine targets. He's actually received at least nine targets in his last five games. Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch could be starting for the Broncos but that doesn't seem to affect Sanders' targets.


    Tight End

    Cash Game




    Ladarius Green is an interesting play for a cash game considering he's only had one standout game this season (last week against the Giants). However, Todd Haley made it a point to let the media know Green would be more involved in the offense going forward. He didn't disappoint catching six of his eleven targets for 110 yards and a score. The Steelers offense has been lacking a weapon in the passing game outside of LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown. That's why Bell has been splitting out as a wide receiver. When DeAngelo Williams went down with an injury, Bell was placed back into the backfield. Ladarius Green gives Ben Roethlisberger a secondary option in the passing game outside of a double-teamed Antonio Brown.

    Tournament



    Vernon Davis' usage purely depends on the health of Jordan Reed. The status of Reed is still uncertain at this point. If he does play, it seems he won't be fully healthy. That makes Vernon Davis a useful option in a tournament. Davis received 13 targets over the last two weeks with Reed out. He didn't receive much attention around the end zone but he amassed enough yardage to make him well worth his price. The Philly defense likes to blitz. Hence, Davis makes a quick option for Kirk Cousins to target in the passing game.
