NFL Week 14 Stat Leader Predictions

By ,

Week 13 was quite the interesting one. A classic Brady comeback, the Cowboys demolishing the Colts, and an AFC Championship rematch. Week 14 has some big shoes to fill after that but with lots of exciting divisional matchups, the potential is there. Myself and Nader Assaf make our predictions for the standout performers this week in the NFL.

Dash’s passing leader: Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys, Quarterback

Prescott is playing an awful Texans defense on Sunday after putting up 54 points in week 13. Ceedee Lamb is a huge matchup problem for the Texans and he could certainly help Prescott and the Cowboys offense out in a big way. I expect Dak and the ‘Boys to drop 400 yards and three touchdowns through the air in another blowout win for Dallas.

Nader’s passing leader: Dak Prescott

After Dak Prescott’s injury in week one against the Buccaneers, everyone thought the Cowboys’ season was over. As he rehabbed, Cooper Rush kept things rolling for Dallas, and Dak picked up where he left off and kept the team hot. The Cowboys in all honesty are a true Super Bowl contender, and Prescott is one of the reasons. A favorable matchup for the star quarterback should lead to 270 passing yards and three total touchdowns on the day.

 

Dash’s rushing leader: Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders, Running Back 

Jacobs has been on a sizzling hot streak in his recent games. In his last three games he has run for 482 yards and three scores. This week, the Raiders face the struggling Rams. To remain in the playoff hunt, the Raiders must win so I expect them to lean heavily on their star man. I predict Jacobs to reach 140 yards on the ground and find the endzone two times.

Nader’s rushing leader: Austin Ekeler

The PPR Fantasy running back one, Austin Ekeler, has carried fantasy owners to high seeds this year, and should continue to do so as most league’s playoff’s start. A fun matchup with the Miami Dolphins could result in a shootout between two electric offenses, led by 2020 NFL Draft stars Justin Herbert and Tagovailoa.

Ekeler’s ability to not only run the football very well, but be a high end receiving back as well, makes the WCU product so dangerous. Expect 100 rushing yards, 40 receiving yards, and a pair of touchdowns for Ekeler. 

 

Dash’s receiving leader: Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins, Wide Receiver

After a couple quiet weeks, Hill bounced back in week 13 against the 49ers. He posted over 100 yards and secured a score. I expect an even better game this Sunday as the Dolphins take on the LA Chargers. Miami will go all out after this week a disappointing loss to San Francisco who were led by Brock Purdy. I expect them to lean heavily on their star man which will result in 160 yards and two scores for Hill.

Nader’s receiving leader: Justin Jefferson

Justin Jefferson has shown the world this year that he’s in contention for the best receiver in football. He’s a true game changer at the young age of 23, and should continue to do nothing but ball out. Jefferson is due for a huge week against the Lions, and I see a stat line of 10 receptions, 120 yards, and a touchdown for Jefferson.

 

Dash’s sack leader: Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys, Edge Rusher

Parsons has had an outstanding season so far and that will not stop this week against the Texans. Houston is not good and Parsons will be too much for them to handle. There isn’t a whole lot that needs to be said about this prediction but I’ll go out on a limb and say that I could see Parsons securing three sacks as well as a forced fumble on one of those opportunities. 

Nader’s sack leader: Micah Parsons 

The second Cowboy on my list today, Micah Parsons, should have a field day against the Texans. In only his second year in the league, Parsons’ ability to get to the quarterback and fool offensive line men at such a high rate is telling to how good he’s going to be in his prime. Don’t overlook it, Parsons is an elite player going against a bad team, and should grab at least two sacks by the end of the game.
