Tower of Power-Fantasy Rankings

Fantasy Rankings – The Tower of Power, Week 14

THE TOWER OF POWER – WEEK 14

Weekly Fantasy Rankings

In this regular article, we give you a lowdown of players whose fantasy performances were worthy of our top 20 this week – based on 0.5PPR format scoring.

For the interest of longevity and variety, we have only included the top 6 Quarterbacks in this list. This is to allow other offensive positions spaces on the board. Otherwise, most of the list would consist of QBs! However, we have included the weekly points rank of the players – so you can see where they lie on the overall points scoring for the week. 

Darren Waller shocked the world by being a Tight End at the top in Week 13. But what did the first week of many fantasy playoffs produce?

1. Derrick Henry, RB, Titans – 35.2pts (1st)

After a poor outing last week, ‘King’ Henry is top of his throne once again. Rushing for a monsterous 215 yards and 2 TDs. He also caught both his targets for 7 yards. Can Henry plough through a poor Detroit run defense and bring you closer to those fantasy ships?

 2. Lamar Jackson, QB, Ravens – 34.9pts (2nd)

In a game that had everything between Cleveland vs Ravens, it was the QBs that put the numbers up. First up Lamar Jackson. Completing 11 out of 17 passing attempts, for 163 yards and a TD. It was Lamar doing what he does best that made the difference, rushing for 124 yards and another 2 TDs, that’s more like it from Jackson!

3. Baker Mayfield, QB, browns – 31 pts (3rd)

The 2nd QB was Baker Mayfield. Scoring the same amount of TDs as Lamar, albeit 2 passing and 1 rushing, it was his 1 INT that made him settle for 3rd place. Throwing the ball for 343 yards from 47 attempts and 28 completions. He also had 23 rushing yards. The only thing bad for Baker on the night was that he walked away without the ‘W’.

4. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers – 30.9pts (4th)

Rodgers is having himself an unbelievable season, and it was another great performance from the Green Bay QB. Throwing for 290 yards and 3 TDs. Rodgers also found paydirt with a rushing TD of his own, having 13 yards on the ground. Another game for 0 INTs for Rodgers!

5. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Colts – 29.5pts (5th)

The Tower of Power loves a rookie, and rookies seem to be loving the Tower of Power this year. Taylor is the latest rookie to make it into the top 5. Rushing for 150 yards and 2 TDs of 20 attempts. He’s not been used as much in the passing game as fantasy owners would like, this week catching both of his targets for 15 yards, but when he’s putting up those stats do we care. 

6. Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles – 27.6pts (7th)

Sanders had his first 20+ point week since his week 5 outing. It’s only his 2nd of the season! Rushing only 14 times for an impressive 115 yards and 2 TDs. Catching 4 of his 5 targets for an extra 21 yards, is Sanders back? 

7. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Dolphins – 28pts (6th)

What was we saying about rookies loving the Tower of Power. This time it’s Tua who makes his way into the top 10. Having 316 passing yards and 24 rushing yards, scoring 2 TDs in the air and 1 on the ground. He did have a INT. He was very unlucky not to get the win against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

8. Kareem Hunt, RB, Browns – 26pts (8th)

This week it was Hunt that outshone Chubb. Carrying the ball only 6 times for 33 yards he still managed to get a TD. It was through the air he made a difference. Catching 6 of his 7 targets for 77 yards and another TD. Its clear Hunt is the pass catching back.

9. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders – 25.8pts (9th)

I’m surprised at this one. With Carr coming up against one of the strongest all round defenses in the Colts i wasn’t expecting to see him here. Completing 31 of his 45 passing attempts, Carr had 316 yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs. He did get into the endzone himself with 3 rushing attempts for 12 yards and a score. 

10. Drew Lock, QB, Broncos – 25.6pts (10th)

Lock had a very productive day against the Panthers. Posting 280 yards in the air, 4 TDs all of 21 completions. He also rushed 6 times for 4 yards. A very efficient day at the office this week for Lock, up next Buffalo. 

11. Tyreek Hill, WR, Chiefs – 24.6pts (12th)

So not only can the Cheetah do it through the air, he can score on the ground as well. In addition to his receiving touchdown, from 3 of 7 targets for 79 yards, The Chiefs wide man scooped up a delicious 32 yard end-around run for a touchdown. Another good day at the office.

 12. Stefon Diggs, WR, Bills – 24.1pts (13th)

Every other pass seemed to be heading Diggs’ way against the Steelers. He was one of the only ones who could unlock the Pittsburgh backfield, with 10 completions off 14 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown. He also ended up with one yard rushing as well, as the Bills beat the Steelers.

13. Mike Davis, RB, Panthers – 23.8pts (14th)

CMC was already out for this game, so it was down to Davis to make the most of the situation. And although he only got 11 carries for 51 yards, he did pick up two rushing touchdowns. He also caught 5 of 6 targets for an extra 42 yards – a little fantasy point boost for owners. Hopefully those CMC owners had him as a backup.

14. Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs – 23.6pts (15th)

Normal service has resumed. Kelce is again the top Tight End on the list – it wasn’t very long. 8 of 10 targets went for 136 yards and a touchdown. Virtually the same as last week, except this time it deserved the TE1 spot. 

15. Nick Chubb, RB, Browns – 23.3pts (16th)

The second half of the Browns dynamic running duo, Chubb continues to impress. And, were it not for the heroics of certain Baltimore players, Chubb’s stat line alone could have won this game. 17 carries for 82 yards and two touchdowns, with an additional 21 yards from 2 completions. 

16. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts – 23.1pts (17th)

Hilton is on a little bit of a hit streak. His third and fourth touchdowns in three games see him blossom at exactly the right time. This time, it was 5 completions (7 targets) for 86 yards. Rivers and Hilton seem to building a connection…

 17. Washington Football Team, DEF – 23pts (=19th)

Another defensive unit! This time it’s the Washington unit causing havoc with San Francisco. Two defensive touchdowns and many other point-bringers take the WFT unit into the top 20. 

18. David Montgomery, RB, Bears – 23pts (=19th)

Montgomery has been highlighted as having a very easy run in, and fantasy managers have to be taking notice now. Murf has been singing his praises for weeks, and Monty repaid again. 11 carries brought up 113 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three of four targets for another 42 yards. The playoffs are a great time for Monty this year.

19. Allen Robinson, WR, Bears – 22.8pts (21st)

Another player to benefit from the returning Mitch Trubisky. Robinson has been a preferred target for Bears QBs all season, but this one saw 123 yards from 9 receptions. And his score was his sixth of the year. Next is a Minnesota defense leaking fantasy points to Wide Receivers. 

 20. Calvin Ridley, WR, Falcons – 22.4pts (22nd)

In Julio’s absence, Calvin Ridley has seen the lions share of targets. And it’s not just from Matt Ryan! Ridley caught a pass from Russell Gage to get a touchdown. That was just one of his 8 completions (12 targets) for 124 yards. Tampa Bay up next…
