ESPN: Week 14 DraftKings Late Matchups

At ESPN Insider, some of our favorite Week 14 matchups for the tiny, four-game late slate include Brian Hoyer, Lamar Miller, Dez Bryant and the No. 1 tight end in New England (still to be determined, but even Scott Chandler is a better play than Jason Witten and Richard Rodgers). This is assuming the referees allow any Bryant completion in Green Bay this time.

ESPN: Week 13 DraftKings Late Matchups

At ESPN Insider, some of our favorite DraftKings matchups for the late slate only include Kirk Cousins, C.J. Anderson, T.Y. Hilton and Travis Kelce. Also would recommend loading up on the Steelers (Ben Roethlisberger, DeAngelo Williams, Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant). They won't be 51 points good like last year, but this offense is a yardage machine under Roethlisberger in 2015.
