  • Ok, so it is pretty obvious to those that know me that I’m not big on Mark Sanchez (or any other USC quarterbacks for that matter), even with the Eagles. Sure, Sanchez has provided some solid outings for fantasy owners while playing in place of an injured Nick Foles, however the mistakes that have plagued him in the past are always right around the corner.

    To make matters even worse for him is the fact that the Eagles take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks in fantasy football week 14.

    Sanchez will make his sixth start of the season this week, but to this point he has yet to face a top 10 pass defense.

    For anyone in desperate need of a quarterback plug-in, Fitzpatrick and Colt McCoy are better jackpot gambles.

    Lamar Miller, RB, Miami Dolphins

    Lamar Miller has had a pretty good season thus far in 2014, much to the surprise of some. Miller entered 2014 in direct competition with free agent pick up Knowshon Mereno. Miller however remained focused and was actually proving to be the better runner when Mereno went down with an injury.

    Lately though, Miller has seen a reduction in carries the last few weeks. The biggest reason isn’t that he is underperforming, but rather that Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has played well lately. Tannehill has in return been throwing the ball more, taking touches away from Miller.

    Furthermore, Miller will face the Baltimore Ravens in week 14. The Ravens defense has given up the fewest fantasy points to opposing runners this season.

    Unless you have no better options this week, the smart thing to do is sit Miller through such an unfavorable match up.
