Fantasy Football, Waiver Wire and Starter Rankings for Week 14 and Playoffs

john harbaugh joe flacco

With playoffs upon us in many leagues (and if not, likely the final regular season matchup) I am switching from identifying waiver pickups to matchups and starting plays. No need to play for the future anymore. It is here.

To aid you, I put a plus by all guys that were available in at least 40% of all CBS leagues entering the week, if you need waiver wire help.

These rankings utilize season averages for the player/role with team and opponent averages allowed, with modifications in cases where circumstances dictates (example: Tom Brady upgraded based on play with better players returning compared to season average).
