Monday Night Insight Week 14 - 2021 Fantasy Football

Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals

December 13th, 2021 at 8:15PM EST

Rams Fantasy Insight

Matthew Stafford has been playing the best football of his career. He’s the QB4 but is going up against a very talented Cardinals defense. I expect this game to be high scoring and for there to be a high passing volume. I think Stafford will struggle throughout the game, but I still expect a top 8 fantasy quarterback game for him. He’s a great start in all league formats.

Darrell Henderson is OUT with Covid, which makes Sony Michel the starter again for the Rams. Though he dropped nearly 22 fantasy points last week, it was against a terrible Jaguars team. The Cardinals defense is superb and should make it hard on him. I expect Michel to be a mid to low-end RB2 this week. Expect 10 to 16 fantasy points.

Cooper Kupp is the WR1 through 13 games and every week despite the matchup. Odell Backham Jr. is an intriguing start this week as I expect this game to be high scoring. I expect him to get a lot of work and to be a WR2. Make sure to get him in your lineups. Van Jefferson has similar WR2 upside, and both players could see close to 10 targets a piece. Tyler Higbee is out with Covid, so don’t start any Rams tight ends.

Bench the Rams D/ST and start the Los Angeles kicker, Matt Gay.

Cardinals Fantasy Insight

Kyler Murray is another top tier quarterback in the league and a matchup proof elite start. There’s not much more to say, but his rushing ability offers a floor that only someone like Lamar Jackson can match.

James Connor has been a monster this season, especially when Chase Edmonds went down with his injury. Edmonds was expected to be back this week, but that’s not the case as he’s ruled OUT again in Week 14. This makes Conner a top five running back this week. Start him with the utmost confidence.

DeAndre Hopkins should be more heavily targeted than he was last week. As much as I love Nuk, he’s just a high-end WR2 this week. Jalen Ramsey is OUT with Covid, so that should help Nuk produce more than he was projected coming into the week. Between Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore and A.J. Green, I don’t want to have them in my lineups. If anything, they’re all emergency starts. Zach Ertz is on a high powered Cardinals offense. That’s always something to be desired when finding which tight end to put in your lineup. Start him this week.

Start the Cardinals D/ST and kicker Matt Prater.
