MIAMI, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Dak Prescott and Aaron Rodgers top my Week 14 fantasy football quarterback rankings for 2021.
Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen and Kyler Murray round out my Top 5 options for Week 14. Lamar Jackson, Tom Brady, Justin Herbert, Russell Wilson and Taysom Hill also land in my Top 10.
Derek Carr, Ryan Tannehill and Cam Newton are among the other quarterbacks I would consider starting if you are weak at the position.
Jalen Hurts, Carson Wentz, Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones should be out of all lineups as the Philadelphia Eagles, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots have Week 13 byes.
Here are some of my favorite players in this week's Top 20 quarterback rankings:
Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys is the top quarterback in my Week 14 rankings. Prescott threw just one passing touchdown in Week 13, but should find more success this week against the Washington Football Team.
Washington allowed the most fantasy points per game and passing scores to quarterbacks through 13 weeks. Look for Prescott to throw for at least 300 yards and three scores.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the No. 2 option in my Week 14 rankings. Rodgers threw for more than 300 yards in each of his last two starts. He also totaled at least three scores in each of those matchups.
This week, the Packers host the Chicago Bears. The Bears are tied for allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. They also just allowed four total touchdowns from Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray in Week 13.
Rodgers totaled three touchdowns in Week 6 against the Bears. I expect him to throw for more than 300 yards and find the end zone at least twice Sunday in Green Bay, Wis.
Derek Carr of the Las Vegas Raiders is my No. 12 quarterback for Week 14. Carr failed to throw a touchdown pass in Week 13, but should be more successful this week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks through 13 weeks. I expect the Raiders to trail in this matchup, resulting in more pass attempts for Carr.
He should throw for at least 250 yards and get several red zone scoring opportunities.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is the No. 13 player in my rankings. Tannehill can be used as a streaming starter if you need help at the position and are in a league with at least 14 teams.
The Titans quarterback struggled in Week 12 and didn't play in Week 13 due to a bye. He should rebound against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in Nashville.
The Jaguars allowed 295 yards and three scores from Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford in Week 13. I expect the Titans to make several trips to the red zone in this matchup. Tannehill is a near-lock for at least two passing scores.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is in the only-use-if-you're-desperate category for Week 14. Newton, my No. 16 option, also served a bye in Week 13. He posted one of the worst performances of his career in Week 12.
Newton is a risky play this week, but he should be much more productive against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks through 13 weeks. They also allowed 368 yards and four scores from Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady in Week 13.
Newton is a near lock for at least 50 rushing yards. He also should find the end zone for two total touchdowns.
