Week 14 will see the end of the 2021 byes for fantasy managers to worry about. That means that heading into the fantasy playoffs, every manager should have their top options available to help them win a championship.

However, the NFL finishes with a bang in terms of impacting fantasy managers. The loss of Jonathan Taylor, Jaylen Waddle, Michael Pittman, Damien Harris, and Miles Sanders will hurt this week as managers push to make the playoffs. Although if you already secure in your playoff spot, then having the likes of Taylor, Harris, and Sanders get a weeks rest could be beneficial for your stretch run this season.
