The Top RBs To Start in Week 14

James Cook, Buffalo Bills (at Chiefs)

With over eight fantasy points as a pass catcher in consecutive games, Cook’s versatility has developed into a real weapon. He hasn’t been efficient on the ground outside of a big game against the Broncos, but an 84.6% catch rate with a clear lead role is plenty to earn him a top-20 ranking consistently.

The Chiefs defense has impressed in many respects this season, but they do cough up the fifth-most yards per carry, and the Bills figure to be interested in controlling tempo to take pressure off of their struggling defense.

I have Cook flirting with RB1 status, which is higher than most in the industry. Let James cook!

Jerome Ford, Cleveland Browns (vs. Jaguars)

He just does it every week. Ford has now returned no worse than RB2 value in five straight games and in seven of eight since Cleveland’s bye.

The declining volume is a concern as we talk about sustainability (three straight weeks under 15 touches), but with at least five targets or a touchdown in eight of 11 games (starting with the game in which Nick Chubb was lost for the season), Ford has proven to be a consistent fantasy force.

This week, he gets a better-than-you-think Jaguars run defense. But with Joe Flacco under center and this team motivated to bleed the clock, I see no reason Ford can’t continue his run of success.

Do I worry about projecting him as such for the remainder of the season? I do — games against the Bears, Texans, and Jets are not a clean run out. That said, we’re talking about the here and now. We’re talking about Week 14 — a week that could hold your playoff fate in its hands. In that scenario, I’m willing to trust Ford this week and ask questions later.
