Week 14 Fantasy Picks: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em for Jaguars vs Titans
The Tennessee Titans will look to stay atop the AFC South division when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14 NFL action. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Titans slated as 8.5-point favorites in a game that could get out of hand before the fourth quarter.
If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 14 showdown.
Laviska Shenault Fantasy
Start Laviska Shenault, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: It's hard to find anyone on this Jaguars offense to be excited about right now. Jacksonville is scoring only 15.0 points (No. 31 in NFL) and putting up 312.3 total yards per game (No. 25 in NFL) this season. If anything, wide receiver Laviska Shenault has FLEX upside in a favorable matchup against the Titan's secondary. Tennessee is giving up the most PPR fantasy points to opposing WRs and Shenault has seen eight or more targets in two of his last four games played. The Jaguars are expected to be playing from behind in this one, so expect the second-year pro to be peppered with targets once again.
D'Onta Foreman & Dontrell Hilliard Fantasy
Start D'onta Foreman & Dontrell Hilliard, RB, Tennessee Titans: The Titans shocked everyone by rushing for 270 yards in a Week 12 loss to the New England Patriots. This offensive line proved that it can block for any ball-carrier, not just Derrick Henry. Both D'Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard posted over 100 yards on the ground and finished as top-25 RBs in fantasy scoring that week. The game script bodes well here as Tennessee should lean on the running game if they get up early on. Trust both of these backs to put together start-worthy performances against a middle-of-the pack Jacksonville rush defense.
Trevor Lawrence Fantasy
Sit Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars: The fantasy football playoffs are right around the corner. If you are dealing with a quarterback by week or still streaming at the position, avoid rookie Trevor Lawrence in Week 14. The Titans have given up a lot of fantasy points to opposing QBs, but the former Clemson standout has shown little upside this year. Lawrence has thrown just 6 touchdowns over his last 11 games and posted under 250 passing yards nine times during that span. The Jaguars have shown a tendency to run the ball in the red zone given they can even get down to that end of the field. There are much better streaming options out there this week.
Julio Jones Fantasy
Sit Julio Jones, WR, Tennessee Titans: It's possible that wide receiver Julio Jones is able to return this week from a lingering hamstring injury. It's simply hard to trust him at this point, though. The seven-time Pro Bowler has posted over 50 receiving yards in just two of his six games played this season and has yet to score a single touchdown. Without AJ Brown on the field to take some pressure off of Jones, it's possible the Jaguars do everything they can to eliminate the veteran from the passing attack. Keep in mind that Tennessee has posted the fifth-highest rushing play percentage in the NFL this year (47.1%). Everything lines up to keep Jones on the bench Sunday.
