Fantasy Football Week 14 RB Streamers

If you have injuries at running back and haven’t yet clinched the playoffs, this week is a nightmare for you. With Jonathan Taylor, Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson and many other solid running backs on bye, it’s a tough call to make. Get it right, and you’ll be running up and down the block in jubilation. Get it wrong, and you’ll be cursing yourself and replaying the decision over and over until next year’s draft. With so much at stake this week, let us at FlurrySports help you either get into the fantasy football playoffs or improve your seeding.

Read on for three RB fantasy football streamers that are worth consideration for Week 14. In some cases, one might still be able to claim these rushers off of waivers. In order to be included in the fantasy football RB streamers article, they must be rostered in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues.

Fantasy Football Streamers | Week 14 RBs

D’Onta Foreman | Tennessee Titans vs JAX (34.3%)

With the Indianapolis Colts continuing to stay hot, it’s imperative the Titans get a win against the Jaguars. The key to winning that game is, as always, the running game. In Tennessee’s last game before last week’s bye, D’Onta Foreman led the Titans backfield with 19 carries. While Dontrell Hilliard outgained him thanks to a long touchdown run, this is still Foreman’s backfield, primarily.

Foreman turned 19 carries into over 100 yards and even added a short three-yard reception on top of it. Although he didn’t find the end zone, that has more to do with a tough New England Patriots defense and the game script than anything else. This week, Foreman and the Titans get to feast on the Jaguars’ defense that ranks 21st against running backs. In a game that will likely get out of hand early, Foreman should be able to either run for over 100 yards, reach the end zone, or both.

David Johnson | Houston Texans vs SEA (37.5%)

It may not be right, but Rex Burkhead is getting the most reps to this point among Houston running backs. With that in mind, David Johnson is the more physical back of the two. Since the bye, Johnson has seen double-digit carries in both games he played and should see that streak extend to three. While his effectiveness on the ground has left something to be desired, he’s been able to contribute multiple receptions in both games as well, keeping him fantasy relevant.

It hasn’t been long since the Seahawks ruled the league with their “Legion of Boom” defense. Unfortunately for Seattle fans, their defense is now second-last against running backs. While it doesn’t seem right, it’s true, and many of your league-mates likely won’t notice either. That’s the matchup for Johnson this week. He’s dropped six points or more the past two weeks and will likely be around the 10-point mark. While that isn’t a ton, it certainly gives him low RB2 appeal if needed. Just make sure he is practicing and active.

Tevin Coleman | New York Jets vs NO (42%)

I never thought I’d say this coming into the season, but Tevin Coleman is worth a fantasy football pickup this week. Not only is Coleman the lead running back for the Jets, but he is clearly the most effective as well. Coleman has posted nine or more points in both of the past two weeks, with Michael Carter out due to injury. Not only is he getting double-digit carries per game and adding in a few catches per game, he’s also extremely efficient on the ground.

Coleman has averaged 4.7 yards per carry the past two weeks and has a matchup with the Saints this week. While the Jets do play the top-ranked defense against running backs, Coleman is still a good option. Not only has he gotten the bulk of the receptions the past two weeks, but his efficiency won’t fall off a cliff. While he shouldn’t be expected to average 4.7 yards per carry this game, he’ll still be efficient and will have to be a big part of the game plan if the Jets want to win.

Editor’s Note: Tevin Coleman is currently in concussion protocol, so monitor his situation (12/8)
