This is Week 14, the first week of fantasy football playoffs, and hopefully you’ve positioned yourself to be in the hunt for your league’s championship. It’s been a season that required some thinking out of the box at times, and some creativity to account for all the injuries at quarterback and teams that and we’re here to help you set those final lineups in stone.
Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.
Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 14 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Start.
Sony Michel and James White, New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Both backs are useful to the Patriots right now because they help solve the problem they’re having. One ensures that they keep the offense moving against a very week Chiefs defense that is allowing 141.3 rushing yards per game. The other ensures that the Patriots have a passing attack that has become anemic in recent weeks.
If the Chiefs are able to post a commanding lead like Houston did last week on the Pats, White will be used to get yards in chunk again. It’s unreasonable to expect White to have back-to-back 30-point games, but he should have heavy usage along with Michel.
