Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under-the-radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you in Week 14. 


Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens

Flacco has seven games with 234 or fewer passing yards. He has just three games with multiple touchdown passes. He also has four games with 341 or more yards. The Washington Redskins rank 31st against the pass, allowing 299 yards per game and 24 passing scores. This feels like one of those big games for Flacco. 


Shonn Greene, RB, New York Jets

The Jets are a soap opera gone wrong. Their quarterback situation is a joke. Greene has been one of the lone bright spots on offense. He ran for 104 yards last week and has a chance to put up another big game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have allowed 144.0 yards per game and 16 rushing touchdowns. 


Jeremy Maclin, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

It’s sad that Maclin is even considered a debatable option. That’s how bad it is in Philly. He’s a roll-of-the-dice option this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have allowed 309.4 yards per game and 21 passing touchdowns. Nick Foles did look improved against Dallas. 


Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings

Rudolph could easily be a no-brainer weekly option if he got even average quarterback play. He is a great red-zone threat with eight touchdowns. He just doesn’t provide steady yardage, largely thanks to quarterback Christian Ponder. Rudolph has a touchdown in three straight games, including a Week 12 matchup against the Chicago Bears. 


Adam Vinatieri, K, Indianapolis Colts

Vinatieri has 21 field goals and 26 extra points. The Tennessee Titans have allowed 24 field goals and 39 extra points. 


Jacksonville Jaguars D

The Jags aren’t a good defensive team by any means, but the New York Jets have serious issues at quarterback. The Jets are averaging 13.8 points in their past five games.
