WEEK 14 PREPARATION
9 THOUGHTS WORTH THINKING
Some of you may disagree with these thoughts and opinions, but that's fine. I like to follow stats, trends, and matchups. These thoughts are based on those observations.
1. Devonta Freeman for the win? In the playoffs, players often emerge and provide a boost to your lineup thanks to a favorable matchup or opportunity. In the case of Freeman, he has a home matchup against the reeling Panthers run defense who could not contain arguably one of the bottom 5 rushing offenses in Washington last week. Carolina has allowed 16 rushing touchdowns to running backs since Week 4 and has averaged 2 rushing touchdowns per game to running backs since Week 10. Last week Freeman returned from an ankle injury and led the ground game with 17 carries for 51 yards and 4 receptions on 62 snaps. He is poised to make a big fantasy splash in Week 14.
