20. DeAndre Hopkins, WR – Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts

Hopkins has posted double-digit FanDuel fantasy points in six of his last seven games against the Colts, including 16 receptions on 28 targets for 255 receiving yards and two touchdowns over the last two.

19. Jameis Winston, QB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints

Winston has been re-invigorated since reclaiming the starting job in Tampa, throwing for six touchdowns and only one interception over the last two-and-a-half games. The Bucs will need Winston's A-game to keep pace with the Saints, the NFL's most efficient offense. 


18. Aaron Jones, RB – Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Packers' offense should get a jolt of energy after the firing of head coach Mike McCarthy. It also helps that Jones is facing the team allowing the most receptions (7.8) and targets (9.3) to the running back position, while also allowing the third-most receiving yards per game (61.9) to backs.


17. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Oakland Raiders

With ​James Conner set to miss Sunday's game, the Steelers will likely throw the ball more often than they have this season. Should that be the case, JuJu will certainly benefit from that while facing a horrendous Raiders' defense.

16. Patrick Mahomes, QB – Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens

Mahomes usually finds himself in a much better spot on this list, but the Ravens are allowing the second-fewest FanDuel fantasy points per game to quarterbacks (15.8) this season. Luckily for his fantasy owners, Mahomes has done just fine in his tougher matchups this year, but being limited off his usual ceiling is certainly possible in this matchup. 


15. Adam Thielen, WR – Minnesota Vikings @ Seattle Seahawks

Despite catching three touchdowns in the last four games, Thielen has sort of been held in check. It's funny that "held in check" means just barely reaching double-digit FanDuel fantasy points, but he still finds himself on this list because of his consistency each and every week. 


14. Julio Jones, WR – Atlanta Falcons @ Green Bay Packers

Julio has posted at least 100 receiving yards in three of his last four meetings against the Packers. And it makes sense, considering the Packers' defensive scheme usually allows receivers to see more man-to-man coverage. Expect a big game out of Julio on Sunday.

13. Ezekiel Elliott, RB – Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Zeke just had his best fantasy performance of the season in Week 10 against the Eagles, rushing for 151 yards and a touchdown, while adding six catches for 36 receiving yards and another touchdown through the air. The Cowboys can essentially wrap up the NFC East with a win on Sunday, so expect Zeke to have his hands on the rock all day. 


12. Keenan Allen, WR – Los Angeles Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Allen is coming off his best performance of the season, catching 14 balls on 19 targets for 148 receiving yards and a touchdown. The Bengals defense is on pace to be the all-time worst in NFL history, so this week's matchup is looking mighty fine for the wide receiver. 

11. Davante Adams, WR – Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons

Adams has been remarkably consistent this season with at least 12 FanDuel fantasy points in every game. This week he'll draw a matchup that No. 1 wide receivers have flourished in all season. Not to mention, Adams should be the main beneficiary of Aaron Rodgers' big day with ​Mike McCarthy no longer on the sidelines


10. Alvin Kamara, RB – New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This matchup is as good as any for Kamara to get back on track. He only has one touchdown over the last three weeks, but the Bucs are allowing the fifth-most FanDuel fantasy points per game to running backs (26.0). Kamara did have a season-high 38.6 back in Week 1 against the Bucs, but fellow running back Mark Ingram was suspended for that game. Expect an RB1 output from Kamara no matter what.


9. Saquon Barkley, RB – New York Giants @ Washington Redskins

Barkley was held to his second-lowest fantasy output in Week 8 against the Redskins, but his range of outcomes is different than nearly everyone. As long as Eli Manning continues to hold check-down parties, Saquon will be incredibly valuable to your fantasy team on Sunday.

8. Todd Gurley, RB – Los Angeles Rams @ Chicago Bears

Gurley will have one of his tougher matchups this season as the Bears have allowed the fewest rushing touchdowns (3) to running backs. Luckily, he sees a ton of work in the passing game and that will certainly continue.


7. Drew Brees, QB – New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucs' defense has been much better since the firing of defensive coordinator Mike Smith. However, the Saints have plenty of motivation after laying a dud in Big D last Thursday, giving them an extra three days to simmer over it and prepare for this week's game. Brees threw for an incredible 439 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1 against the Bucs. Expect more of the same in Week 14.


6. Aaron Rodgers, QB – Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons

Everyone loves an intriguing narrative. But they also love their quarterback that is taking on a team allowing the second-most FanDuel fantasy points to the position. The firing of head coach Mike McCarthy should have Rodgers in a mood to prove that the coaching change was warranted.

5. Philip Rivers, QB – Los Angeles Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals

No other team is allowing more FanDuel fantasy points per game (23.4) to quarterbacks than the Cincinnati Bengals. Rivers and the Chargers could be forced to throw more if Melvin Gordon misses another game. This all adds up to success for the QB. 


4. Ben Roethlisberger, QB – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Oakland Raiders

With Conner out this week, we should see Roethlisberger throw the ball a ton against the Raiders' weak secondary. That's a good thing, considering the weapons Big Ben has, and the Raiders allowing the seventh-most FanDuel fantasy points per game (20.8) to quarterbacks this season. 


3. Michael Thomas, WR – New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Thomas only has a combined 12.3 FanDuel fantasy points over the last two games, but there's no doubt that Brees will look to get him back into the swing of things against the Bucs. Despite his lack of production recently, Thomas still ranks third in the NFL in catches with 91. Look for him to potentially top the 100-reception mark on Sunday. 

2. Antonio Brown, WR – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Oakland Raiders

AB is coming off his best performance of the season with 10 catches on 13 targets for 154 receiving yards and a touchdown. We've talked about the Steelers likely throwing the ball a ton with Conner out for Sunday's game, and AB would certainly benefit from that heavy volume.


1. Christian McCaffrey, RB – Carolina Panthers @ Cleveland Browns

While the Panthers are free-falling with each week that passes, McCaffrey's fantasy production is not. The second-year stud out of Stanford has at least 26 FanDuel points in four of the last five games and he's even rushed for more than 100 yards in each of the last two. Expect more of that production as he tops this week's list for Week 14.
