Home Fantasy DAWGS Of Week 14

DAWGS Of Week 14

We are back with our Week 14 edition of DAWGS Of The Week. This series highlights the players who surpassed their projections the most for the current week. We use Sleepers’ PPR Format for the point system and forecasts. Let’s look back at the players that swung their team to victory this week.

QB DAWG Of The Week: Trevor Lawrence 33.42 FP

368 Passing Yards, 3 Passing TDs, 3 Carries, 7 Rushing Yards, 1 Rushing TD (Projected: 18.32 FP)

Trevor Lawrence showed why he is the best QB in the AFC South in the Jaguars’ win over the Titans. He threw for 368 yards and three TDs. He also had a rushing TD. Lawrence looked calm and collected against the Titans defense. He was very surgical and methodical on his throws. This looked like the generational QB everyone was expecting. Three of his last four games have been 20+ FP outings. He could be a dangerous item to have in the fantasy playoffs.

RB DAWG Of The Week: Jerick McKinnon 32.40 FP

6 Carries, 22 Rushing Yards, 7 Receptions, 112 Receiving Yards, 2 Receiving TDs (Projected: 12.45 FP)

Jerick McKinnon balled out in the Chiefs’ win over the Denver Broncos. This performance was needed as Russell Wilson played his best game for the Broncos. McKinnon caught seven passes for 112 yards and two TDs. His catching off the backfield makes him a dangerous weapon for the Chiefs. He has had two straight great outings and looks to be a good flex option for the playoffs.

WR DAWG Of The Week: Jerry Jeudy 33.30 FP

8 Receptions, 73 Receiving Yards, 3 Receiving TDs (Projected: 11.50 FP)

Jerry Jeudy looked like the WR1 that many people hoped he would be at the start of the season. He easily had his best game of the year when he caught eight passes for 73 yards and three TDs. His three TDs today equal the number of TDs he had throughout the season so far. With Russell Wilson possibly being out with a concussion, it will be difficult to gauge Jeudy’s performance with Brett Rypien.

TE DAWG Of The Week: Evan Engram 39.20 FP

11 Receptions, 162 Receiving Yards, 2 Receiving TDs (Projected: 7.76 FP)

Evan Engram is now the fourth best scoring TE after having the performance of his life. The Jaguars’ TE caught 11 passes for 162 yards and two TDs. What makes this performance better is that Trevor Lawrence was targeting him even on big plays. He caught four passes of 15+ yards. Evan Engram was the best fantasy player this week.

DEF/ST DAWG Of The Week: New England Patriots 21 FP

7-13 Points Allowed, 1 Forced Fumble, 1 Fumble Recovery, 1 Defense TD, 1 Interception, 6 Sacks (Projected: 9.36 FP)

The New England Patriots defense was a force in a much-needed win. Josh Uche led the way with three of the six sacks on the team. They limited Colt McCoy to just 246 yards and no TDs. Raekwon McMillan recovered a fumble and returned it for a TD. They only allowed 13 points to the Cardinals who are struggling with Kyler Murray possibly being out for the year with a knee injury he sustained during the game. New England’s defense is reliable and elite.

Thanks for reading! You can look forward to this series until the end of the season. You can check out the last installment of DAWGS Of Week 13.
