It’s Week 14, which means playoffs are around the corner, and we have one more round of bye weeks to suffer through. There’s a lot to consider at this point in the season, but have no fear! My Week 14 quarterback rankings and notes will help prepare you for a strong end-of-season push. Now, let’s get to those rankings!
Week 14 Quarterback Notes
Week 14 Byes: IND, MIA, NE, PHI
- We got our first glimpse of Taysom Hill as a starter last week. He threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns, but he also coughed up four interceptions. Hill salvaged his fantasy day by rushing for 101 yards and finished the week as the QB6. He has a juicy matchup this week against the Jets, who are allowing the third-most rushing yards this season. Hill will play through a mallet-finger injury, but that shouldn’t affect his rushing abilities. He’s a locked-in QB1 this week.
- Cam Newton gets a plus matchup against the Falcons, who allow the second-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Newton was benched in Week 12, but his legs should keep him in fantasy lineups this week. Newton rushed for a touchdown in all three games he’s played this season. He should be able to keep that streak alive, as the Falcons surrender the fourth-most rushing yards to quarterbacks.
- Kirk Cousins has quietly put up solid fantasy numbers recently. He tossed multiple touchdowns in each of the past four weeks and threw for more than 290 yards in three of the past four weeks. The Vikings are coming off a surprising loss to the Lions in Week 13, and are likely looking to get back on track Thursday night. Cousins is a low-end QB1 who could surprise this week.
- Taylor Heinicke is a solid streamer in Week 14. He has a 6:2 TD:INT ratio in the past three weeks, and a completion rate of at least 72 percent in each of the past four weeks. The Cowboys are a middle-of-the-road unit against quarterbacks, but they allow the fourth-most passing yards to the position. Heinicke and the Football Team are riding a four-game winning streak, and he could make some noise in Week 14.
