RBs to start in Week 14:
Rex Burkhead (vs. Dolphins): Rex Burkhead has been huge for the Patriots recently. Burkhead has scored a touchdown in three out of the last four weeks. Burkhead gets a nice matchup this week as well where he faces the Dolphins who allow the 9th most points to RBs this season.
Lamar Miller (vs. 49ers): Lamar Miller has been solid this season. Miller has scored 10+ points in 10 out of 12 games he’s played in. Miller has a favorable matchup this week against a weak 49ers defense. The 49ers allow the 2nd most points to RBs and the 4th most yards to RBs.
Tarik Cohen (vs. Bengals): Tarik Cohen came back to life last week. Cohen struggled to come up with big plays in recent weeks but Cohen ended that by returning a punt for 61 yards last week. This week he faces a Bengals defense that allows the 8th most points to RBs and who have allowed the 4th most receptions to RBs (73).
RBs to sit in Week 14:
Carlos Hyde (vs. Texans): Carlos Hyde has been inconsistent this season. Hyde had his 2nd highest number of carries last week but finished with just 9.6 fantasy points. Hyde has another tough going this week as he faces the Texans who allow the 3rd least amount of points to RBs.
Christian McCaffrey (vs. Vikings): Christian McCaffrey has been phenomenal this season. Just like Cam Newton though I’m wary on playing McCaffrey this week. McCaffrey faces a really tough Vikings defense that allows the least amount of points to RBs and has allowed just four touchdowns to RBs all season which is the best in the NFL.
