Best available QBs on Week 14 waiver wire

If you’re in need of a streaming option for the fantasy football playoffs, look no further than Fitzmagic. We break down the top signal-callers to pick up off the wire.

So if you’re back here and you ready last week’s article, you’re welcome. Ryan Fitzpatrick was a top option heading into Week 13 and he came through big in what was widely a crucial matchup for a lot of fantasy football owners. Now, we’re back for Week 14 and if you’re in need of some streaming options, well, Fitzpatrick is still out there. Let’s take a look at the top options.

Kyle Allen, Carolina Panthers (13.8 percent owned on ESPN)

The Panthers somehow lost to Washington in Week 13, but unless you’re a Carolina fan, you were happy about some of the fantasy performances. Christian McCaffrey busted by his standards, but Allen had a decent game, throwing for 278 yards and two TDs, adding 22 yards and another TD on the ground. He finished with 23.3 fantasy points. The Panthers aren’t playing for much the next couple weeks, but Allen has a few winnable matchups: @ Atlanta and back home vs. Seattle.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins (5.4 percent)

Fitzpatrick torched the Philadelphia Eagles secondary in the Miami Dolphins’ upset win on Sunday, throwing for 365 yards and three TDs for 26.8 fantasy points. He didn’t even do any damage with his legs, too. In Week 12, Fitzmagic rushed for 45 yards and a TD against the Cleveland Browns. Now, Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins have two very easy matchups in Weeks 14 and 15, taking on both New York squads on the road. Usually teams have to account for travel, but the Dolphins could opt to just hang around. Weather may play a factor, but Fitzpatrick is used to it playing in Buffalo.

Devlin Hodges, Pittsburgh Steelers (1.9 percent)

If you’re absolutely desperate, Duck Hodges and the Steelers get to face the Arizona Cardinals secondary in Week 14. The game is on the road, which actually helps Hodges playing inside at Arizona rather than in the cold in Pittsburgh. The Duck went 14-for-21 for 212 yards and a TD in his Week 13 win over the Browns, so while he didn’t light the world on fire, he was at least efficient enough. The Cardinals offense should up the pace of this game and force the ‘Lers to throw the ball more. Again, only if you’re desperate, but you could do worse than streaming Duck.
