Fantasy Football, Week 14 Starter Rankings and Waiver Wire: Look to Bilal Powell and the Colts Receivers For Help

This week’s fantasy post will go ahead and get some starter rankings and the waiver wire put together. There are no big waiver wire claims (yet), and with the playoffs arriving in most league, you may be limited in your transactions. So what I’ve done here is list my starting order at each position. I’ve then bolded those who are owned in between 40% and 70% and may be available, and bolded and italicized those owned in less than 40% of leagues entering this week.

If you are in dire straits at the running back position, your best bet might be to take a chance on Bilal Powell. He got a decent number of touches behind Shonn Greene last week, and the Jaguars are giving up 165 yards from scrimmage and over a touchdown a game to opposing backs. I expect the Jets to rely on their running game and defense in this one, so he might squeeze a touchdown and 60+ yards for you.
