Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right to do well in fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time. But at Bruno Boys, we help you work through those tougher decisions. That way, you make informed decisions on your starting lineup and will be confident in locking it in.
Our Quarterback Starts and Sits look at the line that separates QB1s and QB2s. We will rarely cover studs, unless it’s a sit recommendation based on matchup or we want to make note of a significant angle in the Quick Hits section at the end. Injuries happen too, which affects other players’ fantasy outlook.
We also consider super flex and two-quarterback leagues, which have become increasingly popular. There are owners who need to know when it’s safe to put Taylor Heinicke into a lineup or when the stars align to start rookies Mac Jones or Justin Fields. Lastly, bye weeks are a factor now.
Here are the Week 14 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Sit.
Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens
Mayfield just might surprise us all and throw a gem of a game, but the Browns rarely make it easy on themselves. If the Browns are to be successful, they need to establish the run. It’s what helps Mayfield set up his play action passing too. The last time we saw Mayfield he was throwing too many passes while backpedaling, which loses yardage and zip on the ball versus stepping into the pass. The mechanics are all wrong and hopefully the week off allowed at least his knee and ankle to heal.
Still, there’s a lack of trust for Mayfield owners are anyone who might entertain picking him up for a week. The Ravens are allowing many quarterbacks to throw on them, they have given up three 400-yard games and seven multiple-touchdown games. It’s just… Mayfield has come up short so many weeks.
