Week 14 of the NFL season is here. The league is entering it’s playoff push and there is still plenty of time for you to win big on DraftKings!
The Week 13 slate of NFL games produced some big fantasy outings, they just were not in the games we expected. The highlight of the weekend was the potential playoff battle between Atlanta and Minnesota. Both offenses disappointed in that outing.
Meanwhile in New Jersey, the Chiefs and Jets put up 69 combined points with a barrage of offensive touchdowns. If you were smart enough to invest in that game you probably had a great Sunday.
Other big games were from typical non-fantasy entities like Jay Cutler or Blake Bortles. It was a weird week to say the least.
To keep up with all of FanSided’s DFS NFL coverage head over to the fantasy football hub where each day you can find a post like this tailored for DraftKings as well as one specifically designed for usage on FanDuel. In this post, all salary and “fantasy points” references are to DraftKings scoring system and salaries.

Week 14 kicked off with a pivotal NFC South matchup between the Saints and Falcons on Thursday. The Falcons pulled off the win even with Matt Ryan throwing multiple interceptions. The fantasy community will be watching all next week to see Alvin Kamara’s status after leaving the game with a concussion on the first drive.
The rest of this week’s slate is jam packed with some good games. Unfortunately for daily fantasy players, some of the better matchups happen outside of the main slate. There is also the fact that some of the most explosive offenses that we normally target have incredibly tough matchups.
Two big games occurring at the 4:25 p.m. ET slot have the most interest. The Seahawks battle the Jaguars in a true clash of strength on strength. Meanwhile the top two picks in the 2016 draft do battle as the Rams and Eagles jockey for NFC playoff seeding.
Let’s dive into the breakdown of each position. As always, this list does not include the Sunday or Monday night games. We will be without players from the Steelers, Ravens, Dolphins and Patriots. That is possibly the league’s best quarterback, running back and wide receiver all out of the main DraftKings slate. There are still some value plays across the board and positive matchups to exploit.
