Week 14 Start/Sit: One-Game Week for Wizards, Knicks
Week 14 Start/Sit: One-Game Week for Wizards, Knicks

Week 14 is one of the strangest weeks on the schedule, as commissioner Adam Silver decided to send some blokes to London (I'm sorry). The Knicks and Wizards will have one-game weeks while in England to persuade the British to watch the NBA, so both of those squads should be avoided in your Fantasy leagues. Atlanta and Dallas will be in the States but have just two games on the docket this week. The remaining teams have three or four-game weeks.

Teams with four games: BOS, CHA, DET, IND, LAC, MEM, PHO, SAS

Teams with three games: BKN, CHI, CLE, DEN, GSW, HOU, LAL, MIA, MIL, MIN, NOR, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, TOR, UTA

Teams with two games: ATL, DAL

Teams with one game: NYK, WAS

Let's explore some players to start and some to sit:

Guards

Consider starting: Darren Collison, IND (75% owned, 38% start)
Opponents: PHO, PHI, DAL, CHA
Though Collison has only totaled 15 points over his past two games, it's worth noting that he's been active on the defensive end, racking up seven steals in those contests. Over the past two weeks, his success on defense (2.0 STL) and solid passing (5.2 AST) have helped him be a top-60 player. While Collison's 10.2 PPG over that span is low, he's doing so on 60.0 FG% with 1.2 threes, and he hasn't missed a free-throw. A four-game week helps make up for any potential regression with his shooting.

Consider sitting
