Top Daily Fantasy Football Lineups to Use in Week 14 of the 2020 NFL Season

NFL DFS Lineups for Week 14, 2020

Week 14 in daily fantasy football is going to be very interesting. The pricing for the top players is kind of out of control, and there are an absurd amount of studs worth paying for this week.

That will make finding the right NFL DFS sleepers as important as ever, as this is shaping up as a “stars and scrubs” week. Of course, you could always flip the script and just create a more balanced team.

It’d be somewhat safer, and it may even be contrarian.

Perhaps that’s the strategy to take for cash games. For GPPs, though, my week 14 NFL DFS lineups will probably just aim for the moon.

I offered some really strong plays last week, but also didn’t have Darren Waller in either of the NFL DFS lineups I handed out. I did list him among my top NFL DFS picks, though, so go figure.

Regardless, it’s onward and upward. Join me as I break down my favorite NFL DFS lineups for week 14 cash games and tournaments.

Week 14 Daily Fantasy Football Advice

Perhaps the biggest situation to react to is Philly’s decision to turn to Jalen Hurts under center.

Doug Pederson said his offense needs a spark, and a spark they shall get. I doubt Hurts is suddenly mega chalk due to a tough matchup and Philly’s struggles, but his $5.1k salary is going to be tough to get away from.

There is also the return of Christian McCaffrey, the absence of Josh Jacobs, and a bunch of other injuries to track. Who is out and who is in remains an ongoing storyline each week, and of course, we also need to brace for the potential impact of surprise COVID-19 news.

Beyond all of that, you also need to keep tabs on the best NFL DFS game environments. I explore them a bit in my early week 14 NFL betting odds breakdown, but here are the best spots for the week.

  • Packers vs. Lions (55)
  • Titans vs. Jaguars (53)
  • Vikings vs. Buccaneers (51.5)
  • Colts vs. Raiders (51)
  • Falcons vs. Chargers (50)

Like always, a high game total doesn’t guarantee anything. Games can under-perform, or a contest can be one-sided. There’s always a shocker where a game with a low total is more competitive or more high-scoring than originally anticipated.

Consider all of this as you look to build your week 14 daily fantasy football lineups. And, of course, be sure to check out my top NFL DFS lineups for week 14 below.

NFL DFS Cash Lineup for Week 14

  • QB: Drew Brees – Saints ($6.1k)
  • RB: Derrick Henry – Titans ($8.7k)
  • RB: J.D. McKissic – Washington ($4.9k)
  • WR: Keke Coutee – Texans ($5k)
  • WR: Tyler Boyd – Bengals ($4.9k)
  • WR: Michael Thomas – Saints ($7.1k)
  • TE: Jordan Reed – Washington ($3.5k)
  • FLEX: Aaron Jones – Packers ($7.6k)
  • DEF: New York Jets ($2.1k)

Remember, this squad is just trying to cash in H2H and 50/50 contests. Derrick Henry, Michael Thomas, and Aaron Jones all feel like smash plays this week, so they’re my core here.

Brees is a wild card, as we don’t know if he’s playing yet.

If he suits up, he’s too cheap against a super overrated Eagles defense. If he’s out, punt quarterback with Jalen Hurts (more on that in a bit) or get $500 more to go pay for Taysom Hill.

These receiving options look like great values to help make this lineup work. Boyd caught a 72-yard touchdown last week and then got ejected. His quarterback situation is less than ideal, but he’s just too cheap for a date with a bad Dallas defense.

Coutee may not replicate the 25 fantasy points he generated last week, but he instantly saw nine targets. With Will Fuller suspended, he’s a lock at this price.

Jordan Reed is a mild gamble, but he’s got the revenge narrative against his former team, he’s cheap, and he did score last week.

McKissic is another source of value. His matchup stinks, but he also may have a huge role if Antonio Gibson doesn’t play. He exited last week’s game with a toe issue after just two carries.

New York is one more punt to make the magic happen. This is a cash game lineup, so I don’t need them to be the best defense of the week. They just are super cheap and make this team work.

NFL DFS GPP Lineup for Week 14

  • QB: Jalen Hurts – Eagles ($5.1k)
  • RB: Derrick Henry – Titans ($8.7k)
  • RB: Aaron Jones – Packers ($7.6k)
  • WR: Darnell Mooney – Bears ($3.5k)
  • WR: Robby Anderson – Panthers ($6.2k)
  • WR: Denzel Mims – Jets ($4.1k)
  • TE: Jordan Akins – Texans ($2.9k)
  • FLEX: Christian McCaffrey ($9.2k)
  • DEF: New York Giants ($2.6k)

There are so many expensive guys I want on this slate. However, I crave the return of C-Mac, who has topped 24+ fantasy points in all three of his appearances this year.

Carolina’s offense hits different with this guy in the lineup, and it’s fair to wonder if he’ll be trying to make up for lost time. I’ll pair him with Henry and Jones, who are also pricey, but are in legit smash spots.

Consider pivoting off of McCaffrey for Davante Adams, or paying down for DK Metcalf or Michael Thomas. I like them all, but for tourneys, C-Mac paired with these other two RB studs may be the most contrarian approach.

Also, few people will have these guys with a punt tight end and two value receivers. If the Bears can just hit the speedy Mooney down the field, he could be a smash play.

The guy is just flat out good, and he has a terrific matchup against a bad Texans defense. Staying in that same game, give me a cheap Jordan Akins from the other side.

Chalk Akins has failed in consecutive weeks, so it’s likely he’ll garner no ownership. Believe me, fading Travis Kelce and Darren Waller gives me indigestion, but Akins has a bigger role with Will Fuller suspended, and Chicago allows the third most fantasy points to tight ends.

Mims has yet to score this year. He’s on a bad team with a shaky quarterback, but the kid is explosive and talented. He is due to bust out a bit, and it just might come as New York plays catch-up against a Seahawks secondary that has struggled in 2020.

Robby Anderson is another deep threat who can pay off with one long ball. He’s not exactly cheap, but he’s on my radar due to his explosive ability, as well as the fact that he may be featured more than ever this week.

You’ll want to make sure D.J. Moore (ankle) and/or Curtis Samuel (COVID-19) are for sure out, but I kind of like him for tourneys no matter what.

Hurts and the Giants round this thing out and make it all possible. Hurts cracked 10 fantasy points in about a quarter of play last week. I know the Saints are a tough test, but the guy’s floor feels rock solid given his rushing ability.

New York just seems legit. I don’t know about you, but getting a potentially elite defense for $2.6k feels like a steal. Arizona has also seemed not amazing lately, so I love the G-Men as a cheap defense punt.

Week 14 NFL Betting

I like to wrap up my weekly NFL DFS lineups breakdown with one last reference to the NFL betting scene.

Obviously I hand out pro football betting advice throughout the week as well, but the two can often be correlated.

Naturally, if there is a way to win at both NFL DFS and NFL betting, it’s not a bad idea to bridge the gap and try to do so.

Where is the correlation this week?

The first may be in the Saints vs. Eagles game. That’s a game the Saints should win, but it’s impossible to ignore the lift Hurts could bring to the table. New Orleans will win, but Hurts could inch the Eagles to an ATS win, and this game might feature a good amount of points.

I am also very high on Henry and Aaron Jones. The Titans and Packers should both roll in their respective games. Tennessee specifically should easily cover their 7.5-point spread against Jacksonville, although I’m a bit gun-shy when it comes to the Packers on the road against the suddenly inspired Lions.

Playing the Giants defense is a nod toward my belief that New York is honestly a pretty good team, too. I don’t know if they get the upset win over Arizona, but it isn’t crazy to lean that way.

While betting and DFS can meet somewhere in the middle, the hope is my DFS advice helps you win. Check out some more insight for week 14 below.
