Wow where has the time gone? Week 14 is upon us and the playoffs in most season long leagues are starting this week. As we look at my NFL DFS week 14 top Fanduel cash lineup, one thing to keep in mind is the weather, as there are several games that could be affected. If weather does become an issue before lineup lock, I will tweet any changes.
This is going to be an exciting week, as a lot of the games on the slate look like they will be close ones. We have a lot of great options to choose from this week at all positions, as a lot of top players have good matchups at multiple positions this week.
I’m going to follow the same path as last week with roster construction. I had a pretty good week but unfortunately I was not able to get anything up on the site because of time restraints. This week I plan to make up for it to everyone and reach the cashline across the board! Let’s take a look at my top cash game lineup for week 14. Once again, please follow me on Twitter @Bruce_Lamb for all the latest updates if weather becomes a problem in any of the games my players are in.

Following the theme of last week, running back is the position I’m paying up for this week. There is just too much variance when you pay up at other positions and I just will not trust that in cash games any longer. The value at other positions other than running back is easier to achieve and I think that continues this week.
I’m rolling with Kaepernick at QB this week. He gets a good matchup to pass against, and he will likely have a lot of room to run. I know he did horrible last week, but the weather will not be a factor this week and the Jets defense has been torched lately. I think Kaep meets his 2x at this price.
At running back as promised, I paid up. David Johnson is expensive, but he has a great matchup to reach what he needs to this week. The Dolphins have been run on often, and they will likely not have their starting middle linebacker Kiko Alonzo this week. I think Johnson goes off and has a chance to reach 25 fantasy points. Zeke is my other running back. The Cowboys and Giants usually shoot it out, and Zeke is just flat out matchup proof. He will get his and I think he goes off against a suspect Giants run D.
In order to pay up at running back, I had to spend down at 2 of my 3 WR positions. I am going with OBJ as my WR 1 this week. As I said earlier, this game usually shoots out, and I’ll take all the Beckham I can get in a primetime matchup. I am going with Taylor Gabriel and Emmanuel Sanders at my other 2 WR spots. Gabriel seems to be the only Falcon receiver that is healthy, and he is in a plus matchup in the slot against he Rams. Sanders is also in a great matchup against a Titan pass D that gives up points to WR 2’s.
C.J. Fiedorowicz is my TE who gets a Colts team that loves to give up points to tight ends. I think he catches at least 4 passes today and gets into the end zone. At kicker, Dustin Hopkins gets the start against the Philadelphia Eagles. I think this game has a chance to be high scoring and Hopkins will be a part of that. Minnesota Is my defense of choice going up against the Jacksonville Jaguars. I think the is the week we see Blake Bortles implode and throw a couple picks with a few sacks.
