Welcome to Week 14 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.

Week 14 is here, which means that for many of you, it’s playoff time. If you failed to reach your playoff race this season, there’s always DFS still to come out ahead on the season. With the playoff lineups in mind, some fringe guys who were starters through bye weeks this season may find themselves in the deeper end of plays to close the season, but remember that the labels are simply a tool for the player analysis, which is what we’re truly after.

Game, Total and Props

As the author, it’s imperative that I note that this is an expectations-based column over a linear start/sit forum. The labels for each subset of players for each game is simply the vehicle for those expectations and have a different context for each player. 

This article will be updated throughout the week to reflect major news or injury implications. I encourage that you use the game by game tables and data points here in conjunction with the player rankings that will be available every week this season on Thursdays and enjoy the games.
