Fantasy Football Rankings Week 14: Sleepers, starts, sits | D’Onta Foreman, Chigoziem Okonkwo, worst Christmas songs and more

Not only are the fantasy football playoffs here, but so is Christmas. So along with our usual Week 14 rankings, sleepers and start/sit advice, we have the Christmas carols. In case you missed it in past years, I’ve done the Top 10 Christmas Songs, Best Christmas Cookies, Best Christmas TV Episodes, and Best Christmas Movies, all of which you can find here (#CheckTheLink). Well, this year, let’s get a little naughty. Not as in, as in naughty or nice, sing along to the 16 worst Christmas songs of all time!

*** Oh! Also, we may have found a solution to the ranking widget issue with Fantasy Nation (via Football Diehards). All three scorings work, I can edit them (unlike before), and the widget lets you scroll on Android (browser) without using two fingers! Yay! ***

2022 Week 14 Fantasy Football Sleepers

🚨 Head up 🚨 These are sleepers. They don’t mimic my rankings 100%. It follows the upside and often carries more risks.

The quarterback

Maybe start: Jared Goff, DET – Goff is coming off two good games, and that happens at home. Goff is great indoors, with 18 of his 19 touchdowns coming inside (nine games). The last time he faced the Vikings, Goff was 277-1-1 for 13.9 fantasy points and it was a road game. Although I feel like I’m running into this mistake of a gamble again, Goff is worth the risk at home in a good matchup with all of his receivers healthy.

Running back

Maybe start: D’Onta Foreman, Carr — Foreman looks ready to go after dinging ahead of the Panthers’ bye, and has good reason for excitement after posting 118, 118, 130 and 113 rushing yards, respectively, in his four games with 15+ carries. Seahawks can’t stop the run – remember Josh Jacobs from Week 12? – and allow Cam Akers to put up a 17-60-2 rushing line. Foreman isn’t a possible starter, he’s a must-start in Week 14. Chuba Hubbard is a deep flyer play given this matchup if you need him.

Hail Mary Start: Raheem Moster, MIA – Who knows what’s going on with Jeff Wilson and Mostert? Yes, the Dolphins fell behind quickly last week, but that doesn’t entirely excuse Wilson being left out of the game. However, we have a couple of reasons – but even more so Mostert – at play this week. The Chargers are too weak for running backs, but their offense is strong enough to keep pace with the Dolphins, or surprise them with an early lead. If Week 13 is any indication, that means more Mostart and Top 20 finishes.

Wide receiver

Maybe start: Sey Jones, Jax – Jones had fantasy outputs of 10.8 and 20.0 in the two weeks before the Lions letdown. He still saw seven targets last week, and a matchup with the Titans could help Jones bounce back. The Titans have given up the fourth-most receptions (170), second-most yards (2,308 yards) and most touchdowns (17) to wideouts this year.

Maybe start: Cortland Sutton or Jerry Judy, Den — If Sutton can play, he’s in for a great game, and if not, Judy can push himself to a top-30 finish. The Chiefs are 10th in receptions and yards allowed to wideouts, but the bigger draw is that they’ve allowed the second-most touchdowns, which helps receivers start a week even with average yardage.

HAIL MARY START: Van Jefferson, LAR – Raiders tap for Rams Even though there’s nothing left to like on this team, Van Jefferson is a great desperation play. He has 19-11-136-2 in his last four matches. Well, yes, those yards are gross. Still, it’s a touchdown hope (and a prayer…a letter to Santa…), which would put Jefferson in room for 10 points and a top-30 finish.

Oh, and with that GIF, be sure to watch Violent Night!

Tight end

HAIL MARY START: Chigosium Okonkwo, TEN — Make the “bless you” jokes, but Okonkwo is 10-7-103 over the past two games, and hey, that’s good enough for TE16 (#BanTEOnlySpots). Despite allowing four touchdowns to tight ends on the year, the Jaguars are still allowing the 13th-most FPPG to tight ends, and their APA is eighth in Week 14.

Fun with rankings!
The Worst Christmas Songs

As I mentioned in the intro (but if you skipped all that)… if you missed out on the past years… I’ve done the best Christmas songs, the best Christmas cookies, the best Christmas TV episodes, and the best Christmas movies. Find out here (#CheckTheLink). This year — and the bad versions that started at Thanksgiving continue — these are the worst Christmas songs of all time, ranked!

  1. All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth – Is that Tolly from South Park? The tune is almost unbearable, as are the vocals and the whistling teeth.
  2. I want a hippopotamus for Christmas – Annoying voice, tune, nonsense lyrics.
  3. Here we go a-wassailing — Somehow a minute and 12 seconds feel like hours.
  4. Dominic the Donkey — If you like it, we can’t be friends… I have Italian in my family, so don’t come with it.
  5. Christmas shoes — That’s All I Need… A desperate Christmas song from a friend who procrastinates.
  6. Mary did you know – Sounds like a church song. Also, we never hear from Mary.
  7. Grandma ran away from the reindeer — Does Santa prove Santa real by celebrating being trampled by animals? of course.
  8. Which child is this? – What kind of Christmas carol is this? Sounds like a snooze fest of a wannabe witcher ballad.
  9. Boy is it cold outside — Trick someone into staying more than anything you do at Christmas.
  10. Santa baby — Does a weirdly sexualized Christmas carol make a woman sound like a gold digger? The 50s were weird.
  11. Merry Christmas, the war is over – So, it’s not Christmas. Sheesh. Finally the children can fill the atmosphere of the haunted corridor.
  12. That’s what Christmas is to me — I don’t hate a cappella music, but this doesn’t feel weird and even Christmas-y.
  13. Chipmunk song – Good once in a Christmas season. may be. Anything more, it’s a headache.
  14. Little Drummer Boy — Not sure which is more annoying… endless versions of this song or “par-rum, pum-pum-pum.”
  15. Angels we heard on high – Glorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr oh Why do we care about X Chelsea’s Day-O?
  16. Have a wonderful Christmas – Thanks again, Ryan George, for pointing out the hilarious nonsense.

    Don’t forget the weirdness of it Winter Wonderland And Frosty the SnowmanAlthough they are interesting.

  • Almost made the worst cut: Hark the herald angels sing And First Noel – I don’t hate Classics (A Christmas Carol is my all-time favorite), probably because Hark sang it endlessly every year in school and plays as a kid…and I watch Charlie Brown’s Christmas twice a year…anyways, boring ones don’t usually do it for me. Give me a joke, Holly!
