Week 14 RB Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • December 6, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Jeff Wilson $4,400

Little-known rookie RB Jeff Wilson blew up in relief duty for an injured starting RB Matt Breida a week ago. While this performance might feel like a fluke, there are many reasons to be encouraged about Wilson going forward. First, Breida has already been ruled out for the 49ers Week 14 game, which leaves the bulk of the work for Wilson. The team trusted him enough last week to give him 23 touches, which he turned into an efficient 134 yards. Considering the Niners are almost always playing from behind, it was also nice to see Wilson’s eight catches for 73 yards. Those eight receptions are the most by any San Francisco RB in a game this season. The matchup against the Broncos is not an easy one but his involvement in the passing game and his cheap price makes Wilson a must-start in Week Fourteen– Ryan McDowell

Justin Jackson $4,600

I was confused as to why it took so long for the Chargers to turn to him on Sunday night. When they did he helped shift the tide of the game averaging 7.9 yards a carry on his way to 63 yards and a touchdown in basically the fourth quarter. Two weeks ago after Gordon left he seven carries for 57 yards for 8.1 yards per carry. Coach Anthony Lynn spoke this week about how integral Ekeler is to the special team and that he is a little rundown with the amount of work he’s gotten in the offense. Also said you will see more Jackson. I can’t wait to see what he can do with more touches against the league-worst Bengals running back defense that has yielded over 2000 total yards and 19 total touchdowns to the position. – Sal Leto

Stevan Ridley $3,600

Jaylen Samuels has received a ton of hype following the injury to James Conner, and deservedly so. Samuels was an elite playmaker at N.C. State and scored a clutch touchdown in Week 13. He’s a great receiver and figures to mesh well with the Steelers’ pass-heavy scheme. However, Stevan Ridley lurks as a threat to Samuels’ rushing workload, and he has double-digit touch upside against an Oakland defense which is simply bereft of talent and gives up a ton of rushing volume due to how bad they are as a team overall. There’s room for both Samuels and Ridley to produce this weekend, and while Ridley’s ceiling is capped by his limited receiving workload, he’s a viable flex play at the cost of essentially free. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Gus Edwards $6,600

Ravens undrafted rookie RB Gus Edwards has come out of nowhere the past month to turn into a fantasy factor. He has three straight games with at least 82 rushing yards and even has a nice matchup on paper against the Chiefs. Kansas City has allowed the most top-24 fantasy performances in the league this season. With that said, Edwards needs a touchdown to be relevant each week as he’s only seen one target all season long. Last week’s game was a good example of a typical game from Edwards as he rushed for a respectable 82 yards on 21 carries but caught no passes and failed to score. That resulted in an RB41 finish. Edwards is a low floor, low ceiling option. – Ryan McDowell

Spencer Ware $5,900

It was a race to see who could get their hands on Ware first. Surely he would step right in for Hunt and post the same numbers. But he didn’t. Against a week Raiders defense he had a meek 3.4 yards per carry and if not for a short yardage touchdown would have been downright awful last week. This week the Chiefs looked at other running backs before landing on former backfield mate Charcandrick West. Now I don’t expect a split as Ware should be the lead back but it won’t be Hunt and he gets the Ravens who rank tops against running backs on the season and a week ago made the Falcons random of Coleman and Smith look like they never took the field. – Sal Leto

Adrian Peterson $6,300

Adrian Peterson has been one of the more game script dependent players in fantasy football this year. When Washington is going well, Peterson gets volume and produces at a high-level. When Washington struggles, Peterson struggles to produce, as he has no role in the passing game and sees heavily reduced snaps in comeback mode. In the year 2018, it is unlikely Mark Sanchez keeps this team anywhere near competitive. Even in a plus matchup with the Giants – now down its best defender in Landon Collins – Peterson is a risky play given Washington’s potential offensive collapse under Sanchez. – Rob Willette
