Every week is a great week when there’s football involved. Each week this column will analyze a player at each position rostered in 50 percent of Yahoo leagues or less. This group of players is basically a dream stream team. For reference, the threshold used for Wins and Losses in this article will be if the quarterbacks can score at least 17 points, if the tight ends can score at least eight PPR points, and if the rest can score at least 10 PPR points. Here is the Week 14 Stream Team.

Week 14 Stream Team
Quarterback – Jared Goff (DET – 50%) v MIN
For whatever reason, fantasy managers seem very resistant to buying into Jared Goff as a fantasy quarterback. As of this writing, he’s still rostered on fewer teams than Russell Wilson for crying out loud! That should change after waivers run this week.
This past week Goff put up 24.60 fantasy points and was the QB4 on the week. It was the fourth time this season he’s topped the 20-point threshold. This week Goff gets an even better matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. On top of that, the game environment itself is even better.
The combined total is the highest on the week at 53.5 points. The Detroit Lions, surprisingly, are one-point favorites and have one of the highest implied totals at 27.25 points. This game will be played in a dome as well which should be a nice boost to both passing offenses. Jared Goff is not only a great Week 14 Stream Team option but also a top-ten quarterback this week.
Honorable Mentions – Ryan Tannehill (TEN – 17%) v JAX, Kenny Pickett (PIT – 13%) v BAL
Running Back – Zonovan Knight (NYJ – 47%) @ BUF
Chalk it up as two straight excellent weeks for Zonovan “Bam” Knight. There is a chance that Michael Carter may return for the New York Jets this week and muddy things up a bit, but Knight may have earned a good share of the workload regardless at this point. He’s scored 30.10 fantasy points over the past two weeks.
Knight hasn’t been a true workhorse but has seen encouraging usage, especially in the passing game. He’s seen 14 and 15 carries over the past two weeks respectively. On top of that, he’s caught all eight of his targets over the past two weeks as well. New quarterback Mike White checks the ball down to the running back at a far higher rate than Zach Wilson did, much to the benefit of Knight’s fantasy production.
This week’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills isn’t ideal but they should be playing from behind which should lead to another heavy workload as White’s safety valve. That could lead to plenty of cheap points in full PPR formats and make Knight a sneaky Week 14 Stream Team option.

Honorable Mentions – Cam Akers (LAR – 46%) v LV, James Cook (BUF – 23%) v NYJ
Wide Receiver – Nico Collins (HOU – 29%) @ DAL
Nico Collins has been quietly turning up lately. It’s mostly quiet because he’s on the Houston Texans but he’s run at least 30 routes in each of the last four games. During that same span, he’s seen 36 targets including at least seven in all four games. Collins has caught only 19 of those 36 targets but that says more about the quarterback play than anything else.
He’s also scored double-digit fantasy points in three of the four games and in the one he missed he still had 9.80 fantasy points. That’s not too shabby and gives him a fairly high floor if he can continue that sort of volume moving forward. This week’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys is not one to be feared either. The Cowboys are middle-of-the-road against wide receivers but the other factors are enticing.
This game has a nice 45-point combined total and the Texans as massive underdogs so they should be throwing early and often. This game is also being played in a dome as well. All of this should allow Collins to keep it going and be one of the best Week 14 Stream Team options.

Honorable Mentions – D.J. Chark (DET – 16%) v MIN, Demarcus Robinson (BAL – 12%) @ PIT
Tight End – Greg Dulcich (DEN – 37%) v KC
Greg Dulcich has cooled off significantly after the hot start to his career. After three straight double-digit fantasy point performances, he turned in three straight single-digit fantasy point performances. That had him getting dropped in plenty of fantasy leagues.
This past week, though, after catching six of his eight targets for 85 yards. Courtland Sutton got banged up in this one and while Jerry Jeudy returned, he’s still not completely healthy. The Denver Broncos may rely upon Dulcich more than normal this coming week. This is a situation similar to Collins in which the matchup isn’t as appealing as the overall game environment.
The Kansas City Chiefs are just a solid matchup for tight ends but they are 9.5-point favorites over the Broncos. That should lead to plenty of dropbacks much to the benefit of Dulcich. This should make Dulcich one of the best Week 14 Stream Team options, especially if Sutton should miss this game.
