Fantasy Football Week 14 Quarterback Rankings

1. Kurt Warner (ARI) – The most consistent fantasy QB in the NFL, Warner doesn’t always put up the best numbers, but he is solid each and every week. In week 14, he should be better than just solid against a Rams pass defense that ranks just 22nd in the NFL. While the St. Louis secondary has seemingly improved its stock over the last few weeks, it isn’t because they are playing better. It stems from opposing offenses choosing to run against them rather than pass. That should not be the case with Arizona. If there is one thing we can be sure of, it’s that the Cardinals are going to do what they do best and that is throw the football with Warner and fantasy owners alike reaping the benefits. In week 9, Warner torched the Rams by throwing for 342 yards, 2 TD’s and no interceptions. He is an obvious must start.

2. Drew Brees (NO) – In spite of his 3 interceptions in week 13, Brees still managed to salvage a solid fantasy effort by throwing for close to 300 yards and 2 TD’s. In week 14, he will face an improved, yet vulnerable Atlanta pass defense. The good news is that this will be a home game. At home, Brees averages 336 passing yards per game with 17 TD’s and just 4 interceptions in 6 games. Through 6 road games, he has averaged 309 passing yards per game, still impressive, but he has just 7 TD passes and 10 interceptions. Brees should be a major contributor to your week 14 fantasy success with this favorable match up at home.

3. Aaron Rodgers (GB) – In his last 3 games, Rodgers has 8 TD’s to his credit while averaging 258 passing yards per game. Even better, he will face a mediocre Houston secondary coming off of a short week at home on Sunday. The Texans have allowed 18 passing TD’s in just 12 games, so Rodgers should be able to find the end zone with ease with this match up. Rodgers is a great week 14 starting option.
