Not only is the game of fantasy football almost here, it’s also Christmas. So along with our usual week 14 rankings, sleepers, and start/set tips, we have Christmas carols. In case you missed it from previous years, I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 best Christmas songs, best Christmas cookies, best Christmas TV shows, and best Christmas movies, all of which you can find right here (#CheckTheLink). So let’s be a little naughty this year. It’s not like, naughty or nice, and make the 16 best Christmas songs of all time!
*** Oh! And, using Fantasy Nation (via Football Diehards) we may have found a solution to the rankings widget issue. All three effects are functional and editable by me (unlike before) and the widget allows you to scroll on Android (browser) without using two fingers. Whoa! ***

2022 Week 14 Fantasy Football Sleepers.
🚨 He sees 🚨 These are sleepers. Do not copy my standards 100%. This is chasing up and often leads to more danger.
Can start: Jared Goff, DET — Goff is coming off a couple of good games at home. Goff is better indoors, with 18 of his 19 touchdowns coming indoors (nine games). The last time he faced the Vikings, Goff was 277-1-1 for 13.9 fantasy points and that was a road game. Goff is worth the risk with a nice matchup at home and all of his receivers healthy…although I feel like I’m running into this gambling bug again.
Can start: D’Onta Foreman, car – Foreman looks ready to go after being intercepted before the Panthers’ bye, and there’s good reason for excitement in his four games with 15+ carries after posting 118, 118, 130 and 113 rushing yards. Seahawks can’t stop the run – remember Josh Jacobs in Week 12? — and let Cam Akers end his 17-60-2 rushing streak. Foreman isn’t just a starter, he should start in Week 14. Chubba Hubbard is a deep fly game given this matchup if you’re in need.
Hail Mary Starter: Rahim Mostert, MIA – Who knows what’s going on with Jeff Wilson and Mostert? Yes, the Dolphins fell behind quickly last week, but that doesn’t completely excuse Wilson from the game. However, we have a couple of reasons – but more importantly – that are in this week. The Chargers are prone to running backs, but their offense is strong enough to keep up with the Dolphins, or surprise them with an early lead. If Week 13 is any indication, that could mean more Mostert and Top 20.
Can start: Zay Jones, Jax – Jones had fantasy ratings of 10.8 and 20.0 in the two weeks prior to the Lions’ loss. He still saw seven targets last week, and the matchup against the Titans could help Jones rebound. The Titans have given up the fourth-most receptions (170), second-most yards (2,308 yards) and most touchdowns (17) to wideouts this year.
Can be started by: Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy, DEN – If Sutton can play, he’s in line for a strong game, and if not, Judy could be a top 30 finisher on his own. The Chiefs are top 10 in receptions and yards allowed wide receivers, but what’s even more impressive is that they’ve allowed the second-most touchdowns, which should help receivers have a fun week even with the middle yards.
Hail Mary Begin: Van Jefferson, LAR – The Raiders are on tap for the Rams, and while there is almost nothing to like about this team, Van Jefferson is a good desperation play. He has a 19-11-136-2 receiving line over his last four games. Okay, yes, those grounds are huge. However, it’s the hope of a touchdown (and a prayer… and a letter to Santa…), that would lead to Jefferson’s 10 points and a top 30 finish.
Oh, and be sure to check out that GIF, Riot Night!
- Fun and creative action
- The port is cool.
- Some good feelings
- It’s amazing
- Pretty dang funny
- Success vibes
- A true Christmas action movie as opposed to Die Hard… Go see it! 8.5/10
Hail Mary Begin: Chigoziem Okonkwo, TEN – Make the “bless you” jokes, but Okonkwo has a combined 10-7-103 over the last two games, and hey, that’s good enough for TE16 (#BanTEOnlySpots). Despite only allowing four touchdowns to rushes on the year, the Jaguars still allow the 13th-most FPPG to tight ends, and their APA is the eighth-best for Week 14.
Enjoy the levels!
The worst Christmas songs
As mentioned in the intro (but if you skipped all that)… and if you missed it from previous years… I’ve made the best Christmas songs, best Christmas cookies, best Christmas TV shows, and best Christmas movies, all of which you can find here (#CheckTheLink). This year – following the worst versions that debuted on Thanksgiving – this is the worst Christmas song ever, ranked!
- All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. – Is that Tolly from South Park? The melody is as irresistible as the voice and whistling teeth.
- I want a hippo for Christmas – Highly annoying voice, melody and nonsensical lyrics.
- Here we go A-wassailing — somehow one minute and 12 seconds feels like hours.
- Dominic Ass — If you like this, we can’t be friends… and I have Italian in my family, and don’t come with that.
- Christmas shoes — That’s What I Want…a depressing Christmas song from someone who’s procrastinating.
- You know Mary – Sounds like a church hymn. Also, we don’t hear from Mary.
- My grandmother ran into a reindeer. – Proving that Santa is real by celebrating Grandpa being trampled by animals? for sure.
- What child is this? – What kind of Christmas song is this? Sounds like a wannabe Witcher ballad snooze party.
- Baby, it’s cold outside – More to keep someone in the loop than anything to do with Christmas.
- santa claus – A surprise Christmas song where the lady pretends to be a gold digger? The 50s were weird.
- Merry Christmas: The war is over – So this is not Christmas. Shish and children at the end can fill the atmosphere of the passageway for hacking.
- It’s Christmas for me. — I don’t hate a cappella music, but this one is weird and I just can’t hear it.
- The song of the chipmunk – Maybe it would be good once in the Christmas season. Maybe. Anything more and it will trigger a headache.
- The little drummer boy – I’m not sure which is more annoying… endless versions of this song or “par-rum, pum-pum-pum”.
- The angels we heard in Arya – Glorrorrrororrorrrrria. Oh, and why do we care about the former Chelsea Day-O?
- Have a wonderful Christmas time – Thanks again, Ryan George, for pointing out the hilarious nonsense.

- Almost cut the worst: Hark the herald chant And First, Noel – i won’t Hate Classics (Christmas song is my favorite time) and maybe because Hark sings it every year, constantly, I play it at school and when I was a child… Also, I watch Charlie Brown’s Christmas twice a year… But anyway, boring ones usually don’t do it for me. Holly, give me joy!
