Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was the highest fantasy football scorer in week 14. The Harvard graduate threw for six touchdowns, however he was started by very few fantasy owners.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the great Peyton Manning provided his fantasy owners with a sub par day. Manning threw for 179 yards and two touchdowns. Not too bad for your average NFL QB, however Manning is anything but average. The biggest reason for the future Hall of Famers down numbers in week 13?

C.J. Anderson. Anderson carried the ball 32 times for the Denver Broncos and became the first running back behind Manning to rush for 150 yards plus in back-to-back weeks.

This week could prove to be much of the same. We could see some unlikely hero’s in Fantasy Football week 14, the question is who?

And are they worth the gamble with everything on the line? Let’s take a look at DJC’s Fantasy Football Week 14: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em.
