What’s up everybody. Alex here, and I am back with my DraftKings NFL Sleeper Picks for Week 14. These are some of my favorite cheap plays of the week that should be low owned. Also if you are looking for more DraftKings NFL picks, check out Keegan’s article through this link. Like every NFL week, there are injury situations that you need to monitor all the way up until Sunday. So be sure to be on Twitter all weekend and watch all the other major news outlets to see which players are active or inactive. As always if these picks help you win or if you need any advice, let me know on Twitter Hunta512.

WR: Rishard Matthews: (4,600) Matthews struggled as expected last week vs The Broncos, only catching one passes for three yards (3.6 DK points), but he should rebound this week vs The Chiefs who are 23rd in DOVA vs WR #1s this season. Even though he only caught one ball he still played a team high 92.5% of the offensive snaps. He should have a much easier time this week against this Chiefs secondary that has allowed an average of 44 DK points a game to WRs since Week 11.
Matthews was a very consistent WR before this matchup with The Broncos averaging 19.8 DK points from Week 9 to Week 12. (four TDs) He has now been priced at $4,600 after seeing his salary rise to a season high $5,800 in Week 12. Even though The Titans are only projected to score 18.5 points this week, I think Matthews is still a very sneaky play with The Titans most likely throwing the ball the ton as road underdogs. (-5 KC) I think he will be a forgotten man this week and he is an elite GPP play at his new cheap price of $4,600.
WR: Steve Smith: (5,300) Smith is in a great spot this week against The Eagles who have been allowing over 47 DK points to opposing WRs since Week 11. Smith is expected to matchup with Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin who just got burnt by Desean Jackson last week for three catches, 102 yards, and a TD. This matchup really couldn’t get better with McKelvin allowing 0.54 fantasy points per route and this secondary ranking 27th in DOVA vs deep passes this season.
Vegas also obviously thinks this Eagles D has become a very weak unit by giving The Ravens a solid implied team total of 23.5 points. I think both Smith and Mike Wallace are in play this week, but Smith is my preferred play because he consistently plays more snaps and sees more targets. It’s been awhile, but I think there is a good chance Joe Flacco connects with Smith on a deep ball this Sunday. He has great upside in this matchup and should come with a very low ownership in GPPs this weekend.
TE: Cameron Brate: (3,800) Brate has become the #2 receiving option in this Bucs offense and has now seen a high 22% of the teams targets over the last three weeks. If not including Saturday and Monday night’s games, Brate gets the best matchup for TEs this week vs The Cowboys who have allowed just over 17 DK points a game to TEs since Week 11. This defense has struggled defending TEs all year, ranking 31st in DVOA vs TEs this season.
The Bucs are expected to be playing catch up on Sunday night and should be a pass heavy offense being seven point underdogs to The Cowboys. I think Brate will be very busy and should score at least 10 DK points in this matchup. He was a popular play last week vs The Saints, but only produced 8.7 DK points. It seems like a lot of DFS players are still bitter about this with Fantasy Labs projecting him with a 2-4% ownership. With the expected low ownership and his cheap $3,800 price tag he is one of my favorite TE plays of the week that gives you some exposure to the Sunday night game.
