The fantasy football playoffs are almost here with many leagues having just 1-2 games left in the regular season. As we look ahead to week 14 there are several intriguing matchups with big fantasy implications. This is the final week with teams on bye with just 2 teams (Cardinals and Commanders) resting this week. Before you jump ahead to our rankings let’s first look at some of the key NFL injuries to monitor in week 14.
Trevor Lawrence – When Lawrence went down on Monday night it didn’t look good. His ankle was stepped on and his knee was bent back in an awkward position. As of now, it looks like the injury is not as bad as it looked as Lawrence has been diagnosed with just an ankle sprain. His status on a short week is still up in the air but he hasn’t been ruled out yet by head coach Doug Pederson.
Justin Jefferson – Jefferson is finally set to return for the Vikings after missing 7 games with a hamstring injury. It comes at a perfect time for fantasy managers who could use him for the playoff run. It’s still worth keeping an eye on the Vikings practice report this week but if Jefferson is cleared to go then insert him right back in your starting lineup.
Rhamondre Stevenson – Stevenson suffered an ankle injury in the week 13 shutout to the Chargers. It looks like he will miss time and could eventually be shut down for the season. Ezekiel Elliott is set to take over the lead-back position for the foreseeable future.
