Week 14 of the NFL marks the first round of the fantasy playoffs for most leagues, while a few leagues don’t start their playoffs until next week. I prefer leagues that have the playoffs in weeks 14, 15 and 16 over leagues that play until week 17 due to stars resting up for NFL playoff runs or not playing to avoid possible injuries. The title run starts over this week, so put everything you knew from the first 13 weeks of the season out of your mind and start fresh here.

Week 13 marks the last chance for some teams to make it into the fantasy playoffs. So the pressure is on for me to make the best picks possible, and for you to make the right calls and bring home a win. A good rule to go by in fantasy sports is to make sure you are the smartest person in the room when the subject of sports comes up!

And for all those who are wondering, I would be shocked to see Ben Roethlisberger take the field this week. I’d sit anyone in a Steelers uniform that plays offense this week, but would add Jonathan Dwyer for a stretch run if you are hurting at RB.
