With Week 14 nearly in the books, you're need all of the points you can get in order to seal the deal on a win in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. On Sunday, we saw huge games from Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin, and A.J. Green just to name a few. Hopefully you're still hanging in there and are ready for the final game of the week to get underway. We sure are. Before you lock on your lineup be sure to read our player-by-player preview for all of your favorite fantasy stars so you know what to expect.
New York Giants at Miami Dolphins, 8:30pm ET Monday on ESPN
The Manning/Beckham stack will likely be a popular one in DFS tournaments this weekend. The Giants head to Miami for a Monday night game that they need to win. As always, Manning will have a reliable floor of about 14 or so fantasy points in standard leagues and can be leaned on if needed in season-long formats against a Dolphins defense that hasn't been great at stopping the pass this year. He's ranked as our QB12 for the week.
Get in on all of the Odell Beckham Jr. that you can this week against a Maimi defense that has allowed 16 touchdowns to opposing wideouts this year. OBJ has posted five-straight hundred yard games has six touchdowns in that span. He's ranked as our WR3 for the week.
How does 104 yards on 35 attempts sound? That's a 3.0 yard-per-carry average, which is, to put it simply, really bad. Well that's what the Giants' four running backs have collected in total ... in the last TWO games combined. We want no part of this, and neither do you.
Tannehill's inconsistency has rendered him unusable in nearly every fantasy format this season. If there's any reason you might consider him this week it's because the Giants defense is just so historically bad that he could have a bit of upside, especially now that he's seemingly found a groove with DeVante Parker. Just tread with caution.
While Miller has had his ups and downs as the Dolphins have struggle to find an identity on offense, the running back returned to his productive ways with 113 yards on 20 carries last week. He should be able to have another nice outing, especially as a pass catcher, against a Giants defense that's allowing a historically bad amount of yards per game to opposing teams this season.
Landry posted a dud last week, so we can understand why you might be wary of rolling him out in a potential playoff matchup. Just know that the Giants are on pace to allow the most passing yards per game in NFL history, so he's got that going for him. If the Dolphins are smart, they'll get Landry heavily involved after his stinker last week, so he's a good PPR option and a flex play in standard formats.
The rookie has at least 60 yards and a touchdown in each of his last two games and seems to have built some chemistry with Ryan Tannehill. He's averaged 7.5 targets per game in that span too, so we like his chances of an encore against an abysmal Giants pass-defense. He could be a nice DFS play with upside on Monday night, but presents somewhat of a risk in season-long formats.
