Fantasy Football Week 14 Start Rankings

December 09, 2009 | Thyrl Nelson

Week 14 is almost here, and for some that means the start of the playoffs, for others it means that last push to get into the playoffs, and for the rest, there are still just four chances left to salvage your season, and walk away with some money in WNST’s salary cap Fantasy Football game.

 

Congrats to Mikey’s Canes, for coming up with the top score for this week. Unfortunately for him, his 166 points weren’t enough to unseat any of the top 3 spots; currently held by Ravenators with 209 points, and PlayLikeARaven and goobirds who remain tied at 195 points. Since the money is going out to the highest single week scores, there’s still time to unseat the leaders and claim your share of the money. While you’re there, take a shot at WNST’s new College Bowl Pick ‘Em contest too.

 

Remember also, that the Steelers are traveling to the Browns for Thursday night football, in what could be an ugly offensive game; make your lineup adjustments accordingly. And of course, as always, watch the injury report, good luck, and have fun. If Fantasy Football isn’t fun, you’re doing it wrong.

 

Lastly, and especially important now that the season is winding down and the stakes are going up, remember that the rankings aren’t an inducement to do anything crazy, like sitting Peyton Mannning. They’re a formulary rating, based on the player’s performance so far this season, and the match up before that player this week, with adjustments made for injuries, anomalies and changes in role. The formulary numbers are in parentheses after each player, with the lowest numbers being best.
