Daily Fantasy Football Sleepers for NFL Week 14 (2020)

| December 9, 2020 5:06 am PDT
NFL DFS Sleepers Week 14 2020

If you needed value in daily fantasy football last week, I had your back. My top NFL DFS picks were pretty good, but my NFL DFS sleepers collectively crushed.

It started at quarterback with Cam Newton being a terrific value play, while David Montgomery, T.Y. Hilton, and the Patriots defense were god-level value picks.

There were some other solid sleepers like Wayne Gallman, Mike Gesicki, Robert Tonyan, and Nyheim Hines, too.

It was a good week, but like every DFS player, I want more. Let’s go get it with my favorite NFL DFS sleepers for week 14.

Quarterback NFL DFS Sleepers for Week 14

  • Andy Dalton – Cowboys ($5.5k)
  • Jalen Hurts – Eagles ($5.1k)
  • Mike Glennon – Jaguars ($5.1k)

The Red Rifle makes his return to Cincinnati to battle the team that drafted and ultimately released him.

He hasn’t been a great source of DFS value, but he’ll have the motivation to play well, and he has an endless string of weapons.

The guy I’d be really interested in punting with is Hurts, though. He took over for a benched Carson Wentz last week and could be looking at the starting gig.

Doug Pederson has yet to give the word, but Hurts did more in 22 minutes last week than Wentz could do in 38. He also looked pretty good in limited duty.

The date with the Saints isn’t great, but he’s at home, and he should have a nice floor due to his rushing prowess.

Glennon hasn’t lit the world afire, but he’s posted 18 and 15 fantasy points the past two games. There’s a possibility he gets to 20+ in a potential shootout with the Titans. The game has a total of 53 per most NFL betting websites.

Week 14 Running Back Sleeper Picks

  • Adrian Peterson – Lions ($5k)
  • J.D. McKissic – Washington ($4.9k)
  • Jalen Richard – Raiders ($4k)

You will want to wait and see if D’Andre Swift is ready to rock, but he’s been out for about three weeks now due to concussion issues.

Add in the likely absence of Kerryon Johnson, and the tried and true Adrian Peterson could be a great play against a leaky Packers run defense. Peterson has been a bit of a touchdown-scoring machine lately, registering 34 fantasy points over his last two outings.

I might prefer McKissic, just because he’s not a million years old. He also is fresh off of a 10-catch outing, and my guess is he’ll be active once again in week 14.

Antonio Gibson went down with an injury on Monday, after all.

There’s also Jalen Richard, who had five touches last week behind an ineffective Devontae Booker. The latter is a more obvious sleeper pick, but he struggled against the Jets.

It’s also possible the Raiders play from behind against the Colts, so it’s not wild to think Richard gets involved as a receiver out of the backfield. Just keep an eye out for the pesky Theo Riddick, who could also eat into his usage.

The entire Raider’s backfield is in play to some extent, seeing as Jon Gruden suggested that Josh Jacobs won’t play this week.

Wide Receiver NFL DFS Values for Week 14

  • Keke Coutee – Texans ($5k)
  • Tyler Boyd – Bengals ($4.9k)
  • Darnell Mooney – Bears ($3.5k)

I prefer to spend up as much as possible at wide receiver this week, with Michael Thomas, Davante Adams, Keenan Allen, and DK Metcalf all shaping up as amazing plays.

That said, we need to save in some spots, and at least one wide receiver sleeper may be necessary. If you have the money, Coutee stands out immediately. He was featured right away with Will Fuller no longer available, and I doubt his role shrinks suddenly.

Boyd was on his way to a monster week 13 effort before getting ejected. He could float under the radar in a positive matchup against a bad Dallas defense.

Of all the week 14 NFL DFS wide receiver sleepers, Mooney might be my favorite. He keeps being held back by poor quarterback play, but he runs fantastic routes and has a penchant for the big play.

If Mitch Trubisky can just find him, he could pop off in a plus spot against the Texans.

Week 14 NFL DFS Sleepers at Tight End

  • Logan Thomas – Washington ($3.3k)
  • Tyler Eifert – Jaguars ($3.1k)
  • Jordan Akins – Texans ($2.9k)

Tight end is a disaster waiting to happen. If you can afford to, just pay up for Travis Kelce or Darren Waller this week.

It isn’t always that simple, of course, so if you need to save, consider these guys. Logan Thomas hauled in nine passes and scored last week, so he’s as good of a punt as anyone.

I am not high on Eifert, but Mike Glennon has targeted him 10 times over the past two games. He’s probably touchdown-dependent, but it’s nice to see Glennon isn’t shying away from him.

Akins has been a total failure as a punt play the past two weeks, but I think this could be the week he finally delivers. Chicago defends receivers pretty well usually, so they could funnel targets to the tight end position.

He won’t be easy to trust, but Akins could be in for 5-6 grabs and a score. The Bears do happen to rank 30th against the position and have allowed nine touchdowns to tight ends in 2020.

Best Defense Sleepers for Week 14 NFL DFS

  • Carolina Panthers ($2.9k)
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($2.9k)
  • New York Giants ($2.6k)

This isn’t the week to spend on team defense. I rarely feel great about doing so, but this week there appear to be a slew of viable defenses in the bargain bin.

Carolina gets the turnover-prone Drew Lock and stands out as much as anyone, while the Buccaneers front seven could slow down Dalvin Cook enough to force Kirk Cousins into some coined mistakes.

Of course, it may just be time we fully buy into the Giants. Kyler Murray has been looking more human lately, and New York just went into Seattle and shut down Russell Wilson.

The Giants may be the play here. They’ve allowed 17 or fewer points in each of their last three games, and they’ve topped 9+ fantasy points three times over their last four contests.

Summary

I’ll get more into how I’m mapping things out when I hand out my week 14 NFL DFS lineups, but I can tell you that I’ll need some value picks if I want the team I presently have my eye on.

NFL DFS sleepers are valuable no matter what your strategy is, though. It’s just going to be up to you if you want a full-blown stars and scrubs lineup or if you really just need one or two of these cheap plays to pan out.

Whatever the case, hopefully, my top NFL DFS sleepers for week 14 help you out. If you want to try your hand at betting, hit up some of my week 14 NFL betting advice posts below.
