Some running backs are coming into Week 14 with ideal matchups while others seem likely to underperform. We’ve identified two wideouts who are ideal starters in fantasy football and two who could bust ahead of the action. Let’s go over some of the top starting options and fades.

Wide Receiver Starts

Corey Davis, Tennessee vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Davis is coming off the best game of his career. He caught 11 of his 12 targets for 182 yards and a score. He’s gone over 100 receiving yards in four games this season and has caught more passes than A.J. Brown and has two more targets. Davis isn’t the go-to guy in Tennessee but has proven that he can be just as dangerous as Brown on multiple occasions.

Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Cowboys are losing tons of games and Cooper has continued to perform at a high level. He’s scored in two straight games and racked up at least five catches and 67 receiving yards in every game Andy Dalton has started for Dallas. The game script might not favor him as much in this matchup against the lowly Bengals but his consistency hasn’t wavered with a viable quarterback under center in recent weeks.

Wide Receiver Sits

DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Parker has had an up-and-down year that’s been affected by changes at quarterback. He’s done his best work with Ryan Fitzpatrick running the offense and will take on a Chiefs team that ranks second in interceptions with 14. Only the Los Angeles Rams have limited wideouts more on DraftKings so I think most fantasy managers are better off looking for production elsewhere at wide receiver.

Marvin Jones Jr., Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Jones has been acting as Detroit’s WR1 while Kenny Golladay has been injured but will draw a tough matchup against Green Bay. He’ll likely demand the attention of Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander, who has been one of the most dominant defensive backs in the NFL all year. He’s performed at a high level against some solid defenses but should have a tough time in this matchup. Green Bay ranks fifth against opposing wideouts on DraftKings.
