With the fantasy playoffs beginning in most leagues in Week 14, the dearth of accidents Sunday needed to be encouraging for fantasy house owners. There have been three, although, that would have huge waiver wire impacts and doable FLEX implications for those who have been paying consideration. Kalen Ballage went down in Miami and will open the door to Patrick Laird. Preseason sleeper Ian Thomas may benefit from Greg Olsen’s concussion. And in Kansas Metropolis, there may really be a possibility for Darwin Thompson after Darrel Williams received damage.

WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Operating again | Huge receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker
Kalen Ballage damage replace
Ballage left Sunday’s sport with a non-contact leg damage that pressured him to be carted off the sector. He was initially introduced as questionable to return earlier than failing to make it again within the sport. There was no replace on his standing after the sport.
Ballage was already dropping floor within the operating again competitors to Patrick Laird, who grew to become the go-to again in Miami’s win after Ballage departed. Laird will get a lift in PPR leagues however may have worth down the stretch in very favorable matchups of Jets, Giants and Bengals developing. Snag Laird on waivers in PPR leagues. Myles Gaskin may be concerned and will have commonplace league worth.
WEEK 14: High Waiver Pickups
Greg Olsen damage information
Olsen was hit helmet-to-helmet Sunday and left the sport with a concussion whereas the Redskins defender who hit him was ejected. Ian Thomas noticed a season-high 4 targets in Olsen’s absence. Thomas caught all 4 passes for 24 yards.
We favored Thomas as a sleeper earlier than the season, however he is barely gotten on the sector with Olsen wholesome. If it seems Olsen misses time, Thomas is usually a TE possibility in deeper leagues down the stretch and can be a superb substitute for anybody rostering Olsen.
Darrel Williams damage outlook
Williams left Sunday’s sport within the second half after injuring his proper hamstring on a non-contact play. He had been concerned in Kansas Metropolis’s offense with Damien Williams (ribs) out, a job Darwin Thompson took over as soon as Darrel left.
There’s a whole lot of uncertainty right here with reference to size of absence for each of the Williams, and LeSean McCoy continues for use strategically. Meaning there is a state of affairs the place the rookie Darwin Thompson will get a whole lot of run down the stretch, and he is out there in principally each league and value a speculative add whereas we wait to see how this performs out.
