Week 14 Fantasy Draft Bargain Buys

This article is almost writing itself by now as once again it’s the Saints opponents who headline the week 14 Fantasy Draft bargain buys. The Buccaneers offer an interesting combination of upside and cheap prices given their up and down fantasy performances this season meaning they should headline your team this week. There is the usual addition of hot players who are still undervalued by the site and who should find their way onto your team.

Jameis Winston, $10,900, NO @ TB: It’s Winston’s turn to face the disaster that is the Saints this week making him a must play in DFS given his price. Winston has had a solid rookie year with flashes of brilliance and even though he hasn’t set the fantasy world on fire regularly he is still averaging 18.5 points per week. His opponents this week are giving up nearly six points more a week to QB’s than that figure so Winston should be able to take advantage and have a big multi touchdown week.

Tyrod Taylor, $10,600, BUF @ PHI: Taylor has had ups and downs this season but predominantly he has looked good when on the field. This week he gets to face the Eagles who looked much improved last week against Tom Brady and his band of merry nobodies. This week will be a different challenge all together as Tyrod will use his legs and his weapons to victimise an Eagles defence who has struggled the last few weeks. If you want to go contrarian to Winston but stay cheap this is the direction I am punting this week.

T.J. Yeldon, $9,700, IND @ JAX: Yeldon has a good matchup this week against a Colts team giving up over 17 points to running backs. Yeldon has had a promising year getting the majority of the carries but the lack of touchdowns and goal line work are really concerning to fantasy owners. However, I expect Yeldon to see 10-15 carries at least this week and last week’s touchdown was on a goal line carry so there are a lot of reasons for optimism this week at a decent price.

Shaun Draughn, SF @ CLE: Draughn (or Forsett 2.0) has done what all good journeymen must do and taken his opportunity and ran with it (literally!). In the games he has featured in he has at least 77 yards combined and last week he scored a touchdown as well as grabbing five receptions for 50 yards. With Hyde potentially done for the season San Francisco are rolling into a good match-up against Cleveland with Draughn as their number one back so he should have a good week.

Sammy Watkins, $11,400, BUF @ PHI: I think we all knew that Watkins was going to be here again. Whilst he isn’t strictly a bargain buy he is still priced a long way off the top ten receiver I think he is. This week he gets an Eagles defence who have struggled in coverage of top tier receivers (see Johnson, Calvin from thanksgiving) and Watkins is coming off two monster games in a row against better defences.

Doug Baldwin, $8,800, SEA @ BAL: Baldwin has become the number one pass option in the offence with five touchdowns in the last two weeks. Seattle appear to have thrown caution to the wind as they try to make the playoffs after a bad start. With Jimmy Graham out Baldwin is the best pass catcher in the offence and Wilson is targeting him regularly.

Vincent Jackson, $8,800, NO @ TB: This price is ridiculous given the talent and the opposition that Jackson has. The Saints secondary cannot cover anyone and Jackson and Evans are primed to wreak havoc this week and at just $8,800 Jackson should be owned across the board.

Antonio Gates, $8,600, SD @ KC: KC has struggled against tight ends at times this year and Gates is still Rivers favourite target. When Gates has a good game he goes off big time and at $8,600 it is worth the gamble that he can do it this week as San Diego seek to get revenge for the humiliation KC handed them at home.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, $5,200, NO @ TB: This one is based mainly on the league’s worst defence against the tight end being his opponent. ASJ returned last week with a three catch 30 yard performance against Atlanta but that has hopefully allowed him to get back to game speed ready for a monster week this week. At the price the gamble is small given the poor situation that the tight end field is this week.
