Without further ado, let’s break down the five best fantasy football pickups for Week 14. Every player listed is widely available in ESPN leagues.
5. Best fantasy football pickups for Week 14: WR Demarcus Robinson, Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens’ wide receivers continue to be unpredictable for fantasy owners. After scoring five touchdowns in his first three games, Devin Duvernay has only found the end zone once in his last nine games. Rashod Bateman is out for the season with a foot injury. 36-year-old Desean Jackson was recently signed, and he had 74 receiving yards in Week 12. Frustratingly, James Proche II is struggling to receive targets, but Greg Roman has him throwing the football!
At the moment, Demarcus Robinson is the only reliable Ravens’ wide receiver in fantasy leagues. He had a breakout game in Week 11 with nine receptions for 128 yards. On Sunday, Lamar Jackson exited the game with a knee injury, and backup Tyler Huntley had strong chemistry with Robinson. He was targeted a team-high eight times. With Bateman on the IR, Robinson has stepped into a bigger role. He is an interesting FLEX option down the stretch.
