The Kansas City Chiefs (11-1) will look to win their eighth consecutive game as they travel east to take on the Miami Dolphins (8-4) in Week 14 NFL action. This game features fantasy football superstars all over the field and will have a major impact on many first round playoff matchups this week.

If you need help with your fantasy football lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for the Week 14 Chiefs-Dolphins showdown.

Kansas City Chiefs D/ST Fantasy

Start Kansas City Chiefs D/ST: The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST unit hasn't been super impressive this season, but there is a lot to like about the matchup against the Dolphins in Week 14. They are facing a rookie quarterback who has been sacked nine times in his past four games. If the Chiefs can make Tua Tagovailoa uncomfortable in the pocket, he may even be forced into committing some turnovers. Nevertheless, The Chiefs have given up 20 or fewer points in eight of their 12 games this season and have proven that they can shut down opposing offenses. When looking to stream a D/ST this week, don't overlook the Chiefs as they could be in for a big day.

Myles Gaskin Fantasy

Start Myles Gaskin, RB, Miami Dolphins: No one knew if Myles Gaskin would immediately return to his workhorse running back role on this team when he returned from a knee injury last week. However, that is exactly what happened. Gaskin played in 71% of the offensive snaps and carried the ball 21 times for 90 yards while adding 51 more yards on 2 receptions. He has become a player the offense relies on to keep the ball moving down the field, both on the ground and through the air. He draws a great matchup in Week 14 as the Chiefs are giving up 132.4 rushing yards per game this season (No. 27 in the NFL). Don't overthink it and just start Gaskin both this week and moving forward.

Sammy Watkins Fantasy

Sit Sammy Watkins, WR, Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs have one of the most potent offenses in the league, but that doesn't mean everyone on it is relevant in fantasy football. Sammy Watkins has seen 13 targets in the past two games since he returned from an injury, but he has caught 8 of them for just 73 yards. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes seems to be dialed in on getting his best playmakers the ball and that doesn't usually involve Watkins. Wide Receiver Tyreek Hill and tight End Travis Kelce are dominating the target share. Watkins is alwasy a threat to score a touchdown, but his lack of consistent production makes him a player to sit on your bench this week.

Tua Tagovailoa Fantasy

Sit Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa has definitely looked like a rookie at times this season, but he has shown some signs of greatness as well. From a fantasy football perspective, he just hasn't proven to be worthy of a starting spot yet. Tagovailoa has yet to throw for 300-plus yards in a game and has less than 2 touchdown passes in three of his five starts. The Dolphins are thriving off of their defensive prowess right now, which means Tagovailoa doesn't have to be the one to lead the team to victory. The Chiefs' defense is tied for the second-most interceptions in the NFL this season (14) and could get after the young quarterback on Sunday. Tagovailoa is a fine backup quarterback to roster, but he shouldn't be in your starting lineup this week.
