The Week 13 slate on DraftKings and FanDuel was great, and Week 14 follows that up with another excellent full 13-game slate that is loaded with excellent NFL DFS stacking options. Season-long daily fantasy football stacking favorites, such as Chiefs, Saints, Bucs, and Steelers, headline things, but there is also a deep secondary tier of teams that could break a slate with players from the Packers, Falcons, Patriots, Chargers and Texans all being great picks.There are a number of running backs who are in excellent spots this week, and in my opinion, virtually all of the high-volume backs are underpriced on DraftKings. Strap-in, this is going to be a good one. MORE ROTOQL: Week 14 DFS values | DFS Lineup Builder | DFS Strategy 101The Week 13 DraftKings Perfect Lineup Review featured a surprise Josh Allen-Zay Jones stack, and while it’s unlikely that was highly owned, it should serve as a reminder of how important stacking is. If a QB is going to have a big day, chances are at least one of his pass-catchers will, too. Finding the best stacks, be it based on value or potential to really go off, is made much easier with RotoQL’s DFS tools. With floor and ceiling projections, correlations, value ratings, and Vegas lines, you have expert insight available whenever you want it.For more great NFL, NBA, PGA, and MLB DFS content, check me out on Twitter (@DFSBenj), where I’m always answering daily fantasy questions and providing more DFS analysis.Week 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerWeek 14 NFL DFS Strategy: Top DraftKings stacks for cash games*Screenshots are from RotoQL web app QB Jameis Winston and WR Chris Godwin, Buccaneers vs. SaintsLast week the Bucs finally unleashed second-year wideout Godwin with DeSean Jackson out with a hand injury. Godwin went off for a line of 5-101-1 and has a chance for a repeat performance this week against a Saints defense that has been getting dominated by WR2s all season long. Godwin’s viability at his $4,900 price point is heavily reliant on the status of Jackson, but with the Bucs out of playoff contention, it would make sense for them to give Godwin as many reps as possible with Jackson being a free agent in the offseason.Winston is yet again a great option in cash games despite a recent price rise up to $6,200 on DraftKings. Winston looked great again last week in Tampa’s 24-17 win over the Panthers, exceeding his salary expectations for his second straight game. The matchup for Winston and any of the Bucs pass-catchers is among the best on the slate against a Saints secondary that is allowing the third-most points to quarterbacks and most points to wide receivers. The NO-TB game also has the highest total on the slate at 56 points.WEEK 14 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsQB Philip Rivers and WR Keenan Allen, Chargers vs. BengalsIt’s going to be hard to overlook Godwin as the top cash game wide receiver if Jackson is ruled out again, but if Jackson is able to suit up I’m going to look to spend up a bit and roster Allen, who is underpriced coming off of his monster 14-148-1 game on Sunday night against the Steelers. Last week was far from a fluke, with Allen posting a plus/minus of plus-9.7 with a 100-percent consistency rating in his five games since the Chargers Week 8 bye.You can look to pair Allen with Rivers, who continues to play some of the best football of his entire career. Rivers hasn’t really flashed slate-breaking upside this season, but has been one of the most reliable quarterbacks for cash games, posting a plus/minus of plus-3.1 with a 75-percent consistency rating and zero ‘dud’ games this season. The matchup for the Chargers passing game is also ideal, as the Bengals have the worst defense in the league by both yards and points allowed. With RB Melvin Gordon questionable to play because of a knee injury, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Los Angeles look to lean on Rivers and the passing game to put away the Bengals, who come in as huge 14-point road underdogs.RB Aaron Jones and WR Davante Adams, Packers vs. FalconsThere’s so many great spots to target this week that I think the Packers will go slightly overlooked despite having a great matchup against the Falcons at home. Look, I know the Packers are reeling following an embarrassing loss to the Cardinals over the weekend, but this is a perfect bounce-back spot against a Falcons defense that we have looked to pick on for the majority of the season. It wouldn’t at all be surprising to see the offense open up for QB Aaron Rodgers, which will only help Adams, who has posted a plus/minus of plus-6.3 in six home games this season.Recently fired coach Mike McCarthy was given plenty of criticism for his handling of the running backs, with Jones being left frustrated last week after splitting the snaps 50/50 with Jamaal Williams. You have to think that interim coach Joe Philbin opts to ride the much more talented Jones against an Atlanta defense that ranks 30th DvP against running backs. We’ve seen Atlanta give up massive games to players like Alvin Kamara, Ezekiel Elliott, Nick Chubb, Saquon Barkley and Christian McCaffrey, so it wouldn’t at all be surprising to see Jones have a ceiling type game if Philbin is smart enough to play his best running back. WEEK 14 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsWeek 14 DraftKings Picks: Best stacks for daily fantasy football GPPs/tournamentsQB Patrick Mahomes and TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs. RavensChiefs players have been money printers this season, but for some reason you’re seemingly always able to get pieces of their passing game for reasonable ownership in tournaments every week. I fully expect all three of Mahomes, Kelce, and Hill to go underowned this week due to a perceived difficult matchup against the Ravens. If this game was in Baltimore I would have some pause, but with this matchup being played in Arrowhead, I’m all in on the Chiefs offense.I don’t mind Hill, Chris Conley, or Spencer Ware in this spot, but my main priority is going to be the QB-TE combo of Mahomes and Kelce. This duo is coming off a monster 76 fantasy point outing against the Raiders, and Kelce has the best matchup on the field against a Ravens defense that ranks 19th DvP against tight ends. Mahomes has exceeded value every week this season, and while being cash game viable, he will likely only make my tournament lineups due to there being some great QB values hovering around $6,000.QB Drew Brees, WR Michael Thomas, and RB Alvin Kamara, Saints @ BuccaneersFor the onslaught stack of the week we are heading back down to the matchup in Tampa between the Saints and the Bucs. I would much rather target pieces from the Tampa offense in cash games due to how condensed the offense is in relation to Winston and his receiving targets, but for tournaments I want to load up on the Saints, who are coming off two straight uncharacteristically sub-par fantasy performances. The Saints have the highest implied total on the slate at 32 points, but DFS owners will inevitably talk themselves out of rostering Brees and Thomas whether it be due to their road splits or the recent two-game drop in production. DON’T BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE! Brees torched this Tampa Bay secondary for 34 DK points back in Week 1 and has posted a plus/minus of plus-5.0 in his past nine games that have totals of 53 points or higher. I’ll also be looking to add Kamara onto this stack to get the full upside of a Brees smash day. Kamara is one of the few Saints players who has better splits away from the Superdome, as his receiving numbers get a slight bump. Kamara is averaging 36.4 DK points against Tampa over his three career matchups against them.There’s plenty of strategy that goes into putting together a winning DFS lineup, and the best place to start is RotoQL’s DFS tools.

SVEN-GORAN ERIKSSON swayed Roman Abramovich to buy Chelsea instead of Tottenham – after mistakenly thinking the billionaire was a chauffeur at their first meeting.The Swede told the billionaire he had more chance of success at the Blues as he would only have to “change half the team”.2 Eriksson has revealed he persuaded Abramovich to take over Chelsea over SpursBut Eriksson nearly blew his chances of being a confidant of Abramovich after accidentally mistaking him for a driver in 2003 – months before he took over at Stamford Bridge.Recalling the tale, Eriksson told The Times: “We met at Les Ambassadeurs [a casino and club in London].”There were three men standing there. One is properly dressed, the other is so-so and the third, I thought he was the driver. Of course that was Roman.“He wanted to buy a club in Moscow so we went to Moscow for three days. We saw all the clubs and I said buy Dinamo. They had the best facilities.“I went on holiday and his right-hand man phoned. Roman changed his mind. He wants to buy a club in London.”Tottenham or Chelsea? I said, ‘What does he want to do?’ He said he wants to win.”I said, ‘So buy Chelsea. You have to change half the team. Tottenham you have to change the whole team.’”ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneEriksson went on to become close friends with Abramovich – and their weekly meetings at the Russian’s apartment to drink tea and talk football almost led to the Swede taking over as Dinamo boss.In the wide-ranging interview, Eriksson also revealed he told Sir Alex Ferguson to “f*** off” after the Scot threatened to kill him over his use of Wayne Rooney at the 2006 World Cup.The incredible bust-up erupted shortly before the tournament – with Eriksson in charge of England and Fergie still enjoying the glory days at Old Trafford.Rooney had suffered a broken foot shortly before the tournament in Germany, with Eriksson still rushing him in to his 23-man squad as he sought to end 40 years of hurt.The decision sparked a furious tirade from Ferguson who threatened to kill the Swedish boss – but Eriksson stood firm against the hairdryer treatment.Eriksson recalled: “[Ferguson] said, ‘I will kill you. You are finished.’ But I represented England and you have to stand up.2 The bust-up between Sven and Fergie made front and back page newsCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdMOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’STIR IT UPBohemians post cryptic response to FIFA promoting a jersey with Bob Marley on it”What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong and when you say, ‘Don’t pick Rooney because I’m going to kill you’, I said, ‘F*** off, what’s going on with you?'”And he was screaming.
