Start – Doug Baldwin: Doug Baldwin had five receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns during Week 13 against the Vikings. Out of nowhere, Baldwin has 24 catches for 433 yards since the Seattle Seahawks came off of their Week 9 bye. The Hawks are 7-5 and fighting for a wildcard spot in the playoffs. Implications are extremely high and the team is playing with a high level of confidence. Fantasy owners should start Baldwin against the Ravens with confidence.
Start – John Brown: Last week John Brown had six receptions for 113 yards against the St Louis Rams. The Arizona Cardinals are currently on top of their division with a 10-2 record in control of the NFC West. Minnesota ranks six in pass defense, but are missing several key players who are grappling with injuries. Carson Palmer is having a banners season and is spreading the ball out to all of his receivers. Expect Brown to be productive and put up some good numbers against the struggling Vikes.
Start – Vincent Jackson: Vincent Jackson has been a go-to option for Tampa since returning from injury. James Winston is flying high as Tampa faces a Saints team that ranks dead last in defense allowing 31 points and 400 plus yards per game. Expect Jackson to be productive against an awful New Orleans secondary.
Sit – Amari Cooper: Amari Cooper is still seeing plenty of targets in Oakland, but his production is fading down the stretch part of the season. The Raiders have a nasty matchup against a brutal Denver defense that has been able to shut down most quarterbacks including Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Many fantasy owners may not be able to sit Cooper, but against the Broncos, it is worth your time to find another player to plug in.
