NFL Fantasy Football Week 14 Sleepers
NFL FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 14 SLEEPERS – A player gets injured, or someone breaks out and earns more opportunities. These players can make or break your fantasy season. No one can predict the future, so drafting a perfect team is out of the question.
Depth never hurts, so it is best to evaluate your roster weekly. This article is a great place to look and will feature the best waiver wire additions each week. (Rostered Percentages from ESPN)

Jake Browning – 12% Rostered
Browning was spectacular for the Bengals on Monday night.
He was 32/37 for 354 yards and a TD and added a rushing TD. Several quarterbacks left with injuries this week, so quarterback is a priority. Browning should be a high priority for most people seeking a quarterback.
Browning has several weapons and a favorable matchup against the Colts. He is worthy of a roster spot if Monday night was any indication.
Gardner Minshew II – 10.5% Rostered
Minshew had a respectable outing this week but was not a difference-maker. He finished with 312 passing yards and two TDs.
Unfortunately, there are few available options, and Minshew is widely available. He will face the Bengals this week and should have another respectable outing. Other quarterbacks worthy of consideration are Joe Flacco, Jameis Winston, and Will Levis.
Ezekiel Elliott– 34% Rostered
Rhamondre Stevenson suffered a high ankle sprain and should miss multiple games.
Elliott should be the starter moving forward and is now fantasy-relevant. The offense has underwhelmed this season, but the running back position has been somewhat productive.
Elliott finished with 17 carries for 52 yards and added four receptions for 40 yards after Stevenson left the game. His upside is limited, but his volume can yield enough production.
Elijah Moore – 34.4% Rostered
Moore was the biggest beneficiary, with Flacco as the starter. He also benefitted from Amari Cooper leaving with a concussion and could be the number one target this week if Cooper cannot play. Moore caught four of his 12 targets for 83 yards.
He is averaging 8.75 targets per game over the last four games, so he was becoming a focal point before this game. He faces the Jaguars this week, and they allow the third most passing yards per game.
Noah Brown – 34.4% Rostered
Brown played last week after missing multiple weeks with a knee injury and played 81% of snaps. Tank Dell suffered a fractured fibula and will miss the remainder of the season.
Brown should become more involved in the offense with Dell out. His target share should increase, which is a big deal in the second-best passing offense by yardage per game.
The Texans have a tough matchup this week against the Jets, but Brown should be a solid start as Nico Collins should draw Sauce Gardner in coverage.
Isaiah Likely – 23.2% Rostered
I wrote about Likely a couple of weeks ago, and he remains widely available. He did not have the best game before the bye week but drew six targets.
His usage is worthy of fantasy consideration, especially considering his upcoming matchups. He faces the Rams and the Jaguars, two teams in the bottom half of the league in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.
