AFC South Week 14 Fantasy Preview

I think the AFC South could be the worst division in football this year. There are a lot of talented players on these teams and I think some solid coaching, but its been such a painful season of ups and downs. We have a barn burner in Jacksonville, a potentially very good game in Cincy (if Indy gets off their bus) and a potential blowout as the Titans head into Denver in hopes of stopping Peyton Manning. Oh, and I guess its fantasy playoffs!

Houston at Jacksonville

For the preview of the game of the week (I have to stop making that joke, but honestly who decided it was a good idea for this to be a prime time game?) check out the podcast on Wednesday night!

Indianapolis at Cincinnati

Andrew Luck…..just wow this year. I can’t get over it. Not sure if its poor OL play, poor play calling or his poor play but this just doesn’t seem right for him. I think he’s much better than this. Unfortunately, Cincy sports the 8th best pass defense this year. Luck has been unimpressive as of late in terms of fantasy and real football, so for me he’s a sit this week. Try and find a streamer if you can.

Donald Brown finally got most of the work last week! He was fairly unimpressive but did manage a TD. Cincy does give up 4.0 yards per carry, but they have also given up just 4 TDs this year. He’s a sit for me this week, especially since Trent will likely take some work away from him, even if Brown is the “starter”.

Last week Keenan Allen ate up this defense for 100+ yards on 8 catches. I think TY Hilton could have a similar game here. A bit of a hunch but I think Indy has to get their game together at some point. Think he’s more of a boom or bust WR this week, but we have seen his upside. Moving to Fleener, the TEs last week for San Diego combined for 7 catches, 86 yards and 1 TD – a big reason why I like Fleener this week. Start him and reap the benefits.

Tennessee at Denver

I think if you’re desperate at QB, Ryan Fitzpatrick could have a decent (fantasy) game here. There’s bound to be garbage time since Peyton Manning stops for nobody. They gave up 22 points last week to Indy…..guess how many Denver is going to put up?

So Denver sports the 7th best rush defense in the league and they allow 3.9 yards per carry. Jamaal Charles had a really nice game last week (not sure why Andy Reid didn’t get him the ball more) so I think CJ2K has a nice game this week too. Not saying that CJ2K = Jamaal Charles, but he looks to be involved in the passing game more and if Tennessee wants to have any shot of beating Denver, they will have to run the ball and try to control the clock and time of possession.

Kendall Wright is Kendall Wright, no real analysis to put into him haha. He’s a guy you want to start for sure this week as I think (or its the most likely case) the Titans will have to throw a lot and Wright is the #1 guy here. I don’t buy Nate Washington at all, so don’t bother with him. Delanie Walker left last week’s game early so that’s what caused his down game. If he plays in this game, I think he’s a TE1 for sure for the same reasons I like Wright.
