We are in the witching hour of fantasy football in 2021! As we prepare to round out the fantasy football regular season, start/sit decisions have never been more critical. This article will cover 3 wide receivers that you should strongly consider starting in week 14. When you’re playing Fantasy Football on OwnersBox, keep in mind that all our formats are PPR, so select your players accordingly.
3 Wide Receivers To Target In Week 14
Pick #1: D.J. Moore, vs Atlanta Falcons (OwnersBox Salary: $5,700) – After a bye last week, D.J. Moore and the Carolina Panthers look to bounce back against a weak Atlanta Falcons team. Heading into Week 14, D.J. Moore is 13th in the NFL in receptions and 15th in receiving yards. When looking at Moore, one stat to keep in mind is that he hasn’t seen less than 7 targets in a game all year. His 28.4% target share is strong and should remain consistent with Christian McCaffrey sidelined for the season. While Moore has struggled to find the endzone in 2021, I could see him hitting paydirt against their division rival. At $5,700, I think D.J. is a no-brainer start this week.
**FAVORITE** Pick #2: D.K. Metcalf, @ Houston Texans (OwnersBox Salary: $6,400) – When building your OwnersBox/DFS lineups, it’s key to watch players’ price fluctuations week by week. Metcalf is one of those guys whose salary has dropped over the last few weeks. That doesn’t come as a surprise, as he has only surpassed 10 fantasy points (PPR) one time in the previous 4 games, catching under 50% of his targets in that span. That said, Metcalf has an incredible matchup this week against the Houston Texans, who have allowed the most fantasy points to outside receivers this season. D.K. plays roughly 82% of his snaps lined out wide, so he should be in store for a big week.
Pick #3: Darnell Mooney, @ Green Bay Packers (OwnersBox Salary: $5,600) – Another one of my top wide receiver plays this week is Darnell Mooney. Mooney has quietly been turning it on as of late, posting over 12 fantasy points (PPR) in 4 of his last 5 games. After starting the season slowly, Mooney has been the WR16 in fantasy scoring since Week 4. Additionally, Mooney leads the Bears in every single receiving category this year by a wide margin. In 3 career games against the Packers, Mooney has 19 catches for 172 yards and 1 touchdown. If Allen Robinson doesn’t suit up for the Bears this week, I love Mooney’s value at $5,600 all day long.
