Fantasy Football Duds From Week 14 Early Games
Did any of these fantasy football duds from the early series of games in Week 14 cause you to lose your playoffs, or your daily fantasy leagues? Shall we review exactly what they didn’t bring to the table in Week 14? Let’s go.
Drew Brees, Quarterback, New Orleans Saints
Brees was about as bad as it gets for a guy certainly started in all lineups both in seasonal and daily leagues today. Only managing 235 yards and one touchdown along with an interception, Brees left his fantasy owners hanging in an awful home loss to Carolina.
Are we even sure the real Brees was on the field, or was it a double while he was in his hotel snoozing?
Looks like Drew Brees never woke up from this http://t.co/WsIxUq5owj

Giovani Bernard, Running Back, Cincinnati Bengals
Bernard just hasn’t been the same since returning from his clavicle injury. Rushing for 17 yards on six carries with 19 receiving yards and zero score had Bernard rewarding a lousy 3.6 fantasy points in Week 14. This certainly helps nobody in their playoffs.

Mark Ingram, Running Back, New Orleans Saints
Ingram did squat to add value to anyone’s fantasy lineup in Week 14. 56 total yards, no touchdowns and a fumble cost Ingram’s fantasy owners dearly. Can we have a do-over please?
Tre Mason, Running Back, St. Louis Rams
I warned against trusting Mason in Week 14 against Washington’s defense. Sadly if you started Mason hoping for the tremendous points he brought last week, he settled down into reality and was limited to just 66 yards on 20 carries against the second-best rush defense in the NFL.
Golden Tate, Wide Receiver, Detroit Lions
Tate didn’t turn his four catches into much as he only managed 50 receiving yards and no touchdowns. Shadowing behind a healthy Calvin Johnson has Tate suffering an extreme cool-down from his earlier season production.
DeAndre Hopkins, Wide Receiver, Houston Texans
Lofting back to reality was Hopkins who returned to dud status from his major Week 13 performance. Two catches for 47 yards isn’t exactly lighting up your daily fantasy team, is it?
Jimmy Graham, Tight End, New Orleans Saints
I hate to keep picking on the Saints, but they were pretty awful today and really stunk things up for their fantasy football owners. Targeted 11 times by Drew Brees, Graham only had three catches totaling a lame 25 yards. The 2.5 fantasy points Graham earned certainly wasn’t worth the high price you paid for him in your FanDuel or Draft Kings fantasy leagues.
Thank you, Jimmy Graham. I'm pretty happy that I won't have to worry about my fantasy teams next week.

Delanie Walker, Tight End, Tennessee Titans
Walker had another disappointing performance in Week 14 which really makes it difficult to trust starting him moving forward. Only catching four balls on 10 targets for 27 yards had Walker looking like a big dud that nobody wanted on their fantasy team today.
Let’s just hope that we all started more studs than duds in Week 14. These guys did a lot of damage which was not the good kind of damage we all like to see out on the field.
