2014 Fantasy Football Champs and Chumps: Week 14
Cam Newton- 21/30, 226 yards, 3 TDs; 12 Rush, 83 yards, TD- 35.3 fantasy points
It was finally a monster showing from Cam, in a very surprising blowout by the Panthers. Still, this is a guy I completely stay away from in next year’s draft.
Matt Ryan- 24/39, 375 yards, 4 TDs, INT; 2 Rush, 23 yards- 31.3 fantasy points
ANOTHER guy who finally came to play. Hopefully you didn’t have to play him like I did in your fantasy playoffs.
Brian Hoyer- 14/31, 140 yards, 2 INTs; 2 Rush, 3 yards-1.9 fantasy points
And it’s official. Brian Hoyer has been benched in favor of Johnny Football. Let the circus begin.
Peyton Manning- 14/20, 173 yards, 2 INTs- 2.6 fantasy points
I need to get stat boy on this one. Was this Peyton Mannings worst fantasy game ever? Peyton snaps his 51-game passing touchdown streak. The NFL record is Drew Brees with 54. Tom Brady had 52.
Running Back Champs:
Le’Veon Bell- 26 Rush, 185 yards, 2 TDs; 6 Rec, 50 yards, TD – 41.5 fantasy points
I think he has solidified himself as a top-4 pick next year. The dude has 711 total yards from scrimmage since LeGarrette Blount’s release. He is only the second player in NFL history to have over 200 total yards from scrimmage in three consecutive games.
Demarco Murray- 32 Rush, 179 yards, TD; 9 Rec, 49 yards– 28.8 fantasy points
Just stupid silly. And add nine points to that if it’s a PPR league.
Joique Bell-18 Rush, 83 yards, TD; 5 Rec, 50 yards, TD- 25.3 fantasy points
I don’t think a lot of people saw this coming, especially with Reggie Bush active. But, it happened…
Running Back Chumps:
Alfred Morris - 8 Rush, 6 yards; 1 Rec, 11 yards- 1.7 fantasy points
Talk about a fall from grace. Well actually, the team just stinks like a sweaty, dark black hole armpit sans the Old Spice.
Doug Martin- 5 Rush, 22 yards – 2.2 fantasy points
Where do you think he gets drafte next year? 6th round? 8th round? Be glad if you didn’t have Martin stock this year.
Rashad Jennings- 2 Rush, 5 yards; 1 Rec, 17 yards – 2.2 fantasy points
Such an awful situation here. He was active, so if you had him, you pretty much were starting him. Then Andre Williams goes out and has the game of his life. Another guy that caused me to lose league this year.
Wide Receiver Champs:
Julio Jones-11 Rec, 259 yards, TD- 31.9 fantasy points
Julio had the game of his life. So kudos to those who rode him to a victory.
A.J. Green 11 Rec, 224 yards, TD – 28.4 fantasy points
Solid game for A.J., however, the Bengals still got worked by the Steelers. Now the AFC North playoff picture is even juicier.
Jordy Nelson- 8 Rec, 146 yards, 2 TDs – 26.6 fantasy points
Jordy puts up another solid stat line thanks to a late 60-yard touchdown that secured the win for the Packers.
Wide Receiver Chumps:
Torrey Smith- 0 Rec, 0 yards-0 fantasy points
He sprained his knee, but he still got goosed. So…. GOOSEEEEE!!!!!!
Keenan Allen- 2 Rec, 3 yards- 0.3 fantasy points
Can’t figure this guy out. I still think you role with him moving forward as a flex option, unless you have a better play. Don’t get too cute come playoff time.
Demaryius Thomas-2 Rec, 11 yards- 1.1 fantasy points
YOU BLEW IT BRO. FOR ALL OF US. Gosh. So much anger I have built up. How many of you got burned by him and lost your playoff matchup?
Tight End Champs:
Jared Cook- 4 Rec, 61 yards, 2 TDs- 18.1 fantasy points
Finally shows us what he is capable of. Maybe Shaun Hill will start throwing to him. Just saying. Dude is a freak.
Mychal Rivera- 7 Rec, 109 yards, TD- 16.9 fantasy points
He is one of the few viable fantasy starts that plays on Oakland. The other being Latavius Murray…
Tight End Chumps:
JULIUS THOMAS-ZERO Rec, ZERO yards- ZERO fantasy points
PLAYOFF KILLER. Oh yeah, Broncos? Just say he’s active and then don’t put him on the field the whole game. YOU ARE RUINING PEOPLE’S LIVES!!!!!!! (Sorry, this one hits home; it lost me my league by one fantasy point with both Rivera and Cook on the bench).
Dwayne Allen-1 Rec, 5 yards- 0.5 fantasy points
Just easing him back in, apparently? Still. If you started him, you were punished greatly.
