StarStreet Pick Five Week 14 Strategy

If you’re not a fan of the salary cap version of daily/weekly fantasy, then maybe you’d be more interested in just picking and choosing between already chosen players. If that’s the case, then StarStreet’s Pick Five games are right up your alley! Turn a measly $1 into $20 or $5 into $100 if you can get all five match-ups correct, or guarantee yourself some cash if you can at worst get three of the five match-ups correct. Sounds easy, right?! Get in on all the fun by CLICKING HERE and entering what you think is the winning Pick Five roster.

Here’s my take on three of the match-ups locked in for Week 14 on the pro gridiron:

Cam vs. Ryan: Newton enters this week off a gargantuan effort that saw him post 34 fantasy points in a losing effort against the Chiefs. That output came a week after going off for 41 points versus the Eagles. As for Ryan, he’s let his fantasy backers down in a big time way three of the L/5 weeks, and the simple fact that we went for just 12 FPs last week at home versus the Saints after gouging that defense for 37 points in the first go round leads me to believe he’s far from being in peak form right now. Newton already dropped 30 FPs on the dirty birds in a tough to swallow defeat back in Week 4, so you can rest assure the Panthers will mean business in the final meeting of the regular season. I simply don’t trust Ryan right now, and neither should you!

Dalton vs. Romo: One of two in-game match-ups has the “Red Rifle” squaring off against a scorching hot Tony Romo whose almost single handedly led his fantasy backers to wins the L/2 weeks by combining for 74 points. Save for allowing RG3 to go off on it on Turkey Day, the Cowboys defense has limited opposing QBs to 17 points or less all season long. While the Bengals enter the week ranked 8th versus QBs, they’ve taken advantage of offenses in disarray over the last month, and I truly feel this unit will regress here versus Dallas’ potent offensive attack. I’ll take an extra helping of Romo here and hope he continues his gunslinging ways!

CJ2K vs. Charles: I might be all over Luck through the air in their match-up with Tennessee, but I have no doubt whatsoever that Chris Johnson will finally come around for his fantasy backers this week against the Colts porous run defense (#22 at 122.6 YPG). CJ2K rushed for 99 yards the first time he faced Indy, but I foresee him going over the century mark and hitting paydirt at least once on Sunday. As for Charles, the Brownies have been playing some stellar defense since their bye, and in doing so, limited opposing RBs to an average of just 8.0 FPPG. With nasty weather expected in Cleveland, I’ll gladly side with Johnson in the comfy confines of the dome.
