With the Week 14 RB Fantasy Football Rankings coming your way, there is no more screwing around. You are reading this because you won the first round of the playoffs, or you landed a spot in your league's coveted tournament. Congrats on both. I won't fiddle around and talk your ear off this week. But those owners who have Ahmad Bradshaw should hear me out.
I usually don't wish injury on any player. It's just something I don't do. And when the Fantasy Football Gods hear this, I am afraid they will punish me by casting me with boils. Or at the very least, knock one of my top studs out for the year. But when I read the news that Andre Brown was out for the rest of the season with a broken left fibula, I'll admit I smirked a little bit. You and I both know that Brown was the biggest thorn in Bradshaw's side for weeks on end, mostly from his vulgarizing touchdowns in the redzone. But with Brown now out and David Wilson continuing his dominance in the doghouse, the stars are aligned for a huge Bradshaw run. It started last night when Bradshaw ran 24 times for 103 yards against the Redskins. While also catch 2 passes. It won't stop there. Bradshaw's schedule is like sweet icing on a cake. He faces the league's worst fantasy run defense in the Saints Week 14, Atlanta's 9th worst in Week 15 and Baltimore's 12th worst in Week 16. As you'll see by my rankings below, Bradshaw is one of the top RB1's this week. And with this kind of schedule coming up, owners should get the full benefits of Bradshaw going into their league championship. He will be the hottest fantasy back to close the season. Now we just have to hope his foot problems will be a thing of the past.
Also, make sure to check the rankings again between now and Friday to see if anyone has moved up or down due to latest news and injuries. I think I changed last week's rankings 10 times before Friday.
