With only a few weeks left in the competition, we're bound to see some surprises tonight. While this is scheduled to be a men's elimination week, the sneak peek MTV released makes it look like TJ has a few tricks up his sleeve. That puts a lot of competitors into play, from a fantasy perspective.

Here at The Duel, we'll be providing fantasy picks and power rankings for each episode of MTV's "The Challenge: Total Madness." Here are our picks for Week 14.

The Challenge Fantasy Picks Week 14

1. Josh

Josh is the most expensive player of the week, so he'll undoubtedly be a popular selection. And in a stunning turn of events, there's actually a lot to like about him. He hasn't gotten a red skull, and whatever the format of the show is this week, he'll likely do his best to try and earn a spot in TJ's final. Whether he has the sway to pull it off is up for debate, but he's a lock for screen time, at the very least. He's our MVP of the week.

2. Kyle

The other obvious choice for the guys is Kyle. He's the only other male competitor without a red skull. Playing both Kyle and Josh will severely limit your options for your final two selections, but getting at least one of the two in your lineup this week is a must.

3. Bayleigh

If you play both Kyle and Josh, you'll only be left with a few options. Of that limited pool, Bayleigh probably has the most upside. She showed out with a great fantasy performance last week and is the only competitor in the low-tier price range without a red skull. As mentioned above, there seems to be some sort of twist coming, and if that gives Bayleigh a chance to earn a red skull, she could put up a really nice outing.
