Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 14 Quarterback Streaming article!

If you are still reading, congratulations on making the playoffs! These next three weeks are where champions are forged, every decision matters. Fortunately, I’ve got your QB situation on lockdown for round one of the playoffs.

In last week’s article, I recommended streaming Taysom Hill, Kirk Cousins, and Philip Rivers. It was another very solid week as they finished as the QB8, QB12, and QB16 respectively. 

Hopefully you followed my advice before as two of the three steamers are repeats from last week and should already be on your roster. If not, don’t fear, as they are for the most part still widely available.

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 14 Quarterback Streaming will highlight QBs owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints (49.0% Owned)

Taysom Hill attempted 37 passes, completing 27 of them for 232 yards, and two touchdowns. He also rushed 14 times for 83 yards in a Saints victory over the Falcons.

37 pass attempts is easily a career-high, and it is almost as many attempts as the past two weeks combined (39). On top of that, his 14 carries are also an upgrade from the 10 he has seen in each of the past two games.

It would seem that Sean Payton is getting more and more comfortable designing an offense that plays to Hill’s strengths. This increased trust should only benefit Hill's usage.

In his three weeks as a starter Hill has now finished as the QB4, QB11, and QB8. That is elite production. I am absolutely baffled that Hill is not already 75%+ owned at this point. Play this man until the wheels fall off.

The Matchup

Hill and the Saints will travel to Philadelphia to face the Eagles this weekend.

The Eagles are a somewhat neutral matchup in my eyes. They are currently ninth-best against fantasy quarterbacks which is quite good. However, I believe a lot of this is due to them playing against lousy NFC East QBs. 

Philadelphia is also trotting out rookie QB Jalen Hurts for his first NFL start. Wentz’s anemic performances finally become too much for Doug Pederson to bear as he subbed in Hurts for the second half of their game against the Packers. 

Hurts could provide a spark for the Eagles, but ultimately, I expect the Saints defense to shut him down for the majority of the game. Likely forcing a lot of turnovers and short fields for Hill to cash in on.

Hill is our expert consensus QB11 for Week 14, I’m playing him in all formats. 

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (46.4% Owned)

Matthew Stafford completed 27 of 42 passes for 402 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception against the Bears.

Remember a few weeks ago when I said Stafford is unpredictable because matchups are basically meaningless to him? 402 yards and three TDs versus one of the best defenses in all of football is about as unpredictable as it gets. 

Four of Stafford’s last six games have been excellent (QB3, QB6, QB15, QB5). His eight-point stinker in Week 11 really soiled any trust people had in him, which explains why he is so widely available at this point.

Once again, keep an eye on Kenny Golladay’s status as his return would be a great boost to Stafford. That being said, Stafford can clearly get it done without Golladay if he has to.

You never really know what you are going to get with Stafford, but I’d still feel comfortable rolling him out this week for the upside that this is one of his good games.

The Matchup

Stafford and the Lions will stay home this weekend to take on division rival Green Bay Packers.

For what it’s worth, the Packers are 8th in points allowed against fantasy QBs, but I’m not going to spend too much time on the matchup because well, it doesn’t seem to matter to Stafford.

He’s had great performances against top-tier defenses like Indianapolis and Chicago. And he has had awful games against terrible defenses like Minnesota and Jacksonville.

What I find more interesting are Stafford’s home-road splits. He has averaged 282 yards and 2.2 touchdowns at home compared to 267 and 1.4 on the road this season. That’s a 3.5 fantasy point difference per game. 

He is playing at home this week, so I am fine starting him in a pinch.

Bargain Bin Option

Philip Rivers, Indianapolis Colts (10.7% Owned)

Philip Rivers is making his third straight appearance in the bargain bin and I’m starting to feel bad about how little people want this guy. 

Rivers completed 27 of 25 attempts for 285 yards and two touchdowns in a win over the Texans.

It was reported that Rivers suffered a toe injury before this game (plantar plate rupture), but it didn’t seem to bother him too much in this one. He will have to play through this for the rest of the season, but seeing as Rivers isn't much of a mobile QB, it shouldn’t affect him too much.

He has played through a lot worse in 2008 when he tore his ACL and then played in the AFC Championship just six days later. So no real cause for concern here with this injury.

Rivers has also been on a tear, as six of his last seven games have been quality performances. That's four straight solid performances since his last bust game. He is the QB13 since Week 6 and he seems to just consistently put up 19-22 points a game.

The Matchup

Rivers and his toe go on the road to Vegas to take on the Raiders in Week 14. The Raiders are currently 11th worst against fantasy quarterbacks.

They are coming off a win where they just barely beat the Jets with five seconds left in what might very well be one of the worst defensive play calls I’ve ever seen by Gregg Williams.

Despite the win, they still allowed the Jets dreadful offense to score 28 points. And before that game, the Raiders allowed 43 points to the Falcons and 35 to the Chiefs.

The Raiders' recent defensive ineptitude has not gone unnoticed by sports bettors, as this game currently has the second-highest over-under of the week at 52 points.

In short, there is no reason not to expect another 19-22 point performance from Rivers this week. He is a safe option but doesn’t have the highest ceiling of the streamers.
