Well, this year, let’s be a little naughty. Not like naughty or nice, and make the top 15 worst Christmas songs of all time!

2022 Week 14 Fantasy Football Sleepers

🚨HEAD UP🚨 These are sleepers. They will not 100% mimic my rankings. This hunts upwards and often carries more risk.

QUARTERBACK

POSSIBLE START: Jared Goff, DET – Goff has had two nice games that happen to be at home. Goff is better indoors, with 18 of his 19 touchdowns coming from indoors (nine games). When he last faced the Vikings, Goff had 277-1-1 for 13.9 fantasy points, and that was a street play. Goff is well worth the risk at home in a nice matchup and with all his healthy receivers…even if I feel like I’m running into that blunder of a gamble again.

RUN BACK

POSSIBLE LAUNCH: D’Onta Foreman, CAR β€” Foreman sounds poised to go after being hired ahead of the Panthers’ bye, and after posting 118, 118, 130 and 113 rushing yards respectively in his four games with 15+ carries, there’s good reason to be excited. Seahawks can’t stop the run – remember Josh Jacobs in Week 12? – and just let Cam Akers put up a 17-60-2 rushing line. Foreman isn’t just a possible start, he’s a must-play in Week 14. Chuba Hubbard is a deep-flyer game given this matchup if you need it.

HAIL MARY START: Raheem Mostert, MIA β€” Who knows what’s going on with Jeff Wilson and Mostert? Yes, the Dolphins fell behind quickly last week, but that doesn’t fully excuse Wilson from the game. Still, we have two reasons why both – and even more so Mostert – are in the game this week. The Chargers are also extremely vulnerable to running backs, but their offense is strong enough to keep up with the Dolphins or even surprise them with an early lead. If week 13 is any indication, that would mean more Mostert and a potential top 20 finish.

WIDE RECEIVER

POSSIBLE START: Zay Jones, JAX β€” Jones had fantasy outputs of 10.8 and 20.0 in the two weeks leading up to the Lions’ disappointment. He still saw seven goals last week and the matchup with the Titans may help Jones recover. The Titans have given up the fourth most receptions (170), second most yards (2,308 yards) and most touchdowns (17) to wideouts this year.

POSSIBLE START: Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy, DEN – If Sutton can play, it’s his turn for a solid game, and if not, Jeudy can step up for a top-30 finish of his own. The Chiefs are in the top 10 when it comes to allowing receptions and yards for wideouts, but the even bigger appeal is that they’ve had the second most touchdowns allowed, which helps receivers have a starting week even with mediocre yards.

HAIL MARY START: Van Jefferson, LAR – The Raiders are available to the Rams and while there’s almost nothing left to like about this team, Van Jefferson is a good game of desperation. He has a receiving line of 19-11-136-2 in his last four games. Okay, yeah, those yards are gross. However, this is a touchdown hope (and a prayer…and a letter to Santa…) that would position Jefferson for 10 points and a top-30 finish.

CLOSE END

HAIL MARY START: Chigoziem Okonkwo, TEN – Do the “Bless You” jokes, but Okonkwo is 10-7-103 together in the last two games, and hey, that’s good enough for TE16 (#BanTEOnlySpots). Even though the Jaguars allow just four touchdowns to tight ends this year, they still allow tight ends for the 13th most FPPG, and their APA is the 8th best for Week 14.


Fun with rankings!
The worst Christmas carols

As mentioned in the intro (but in case you skipped all that)… and in case you missed the years past… I’ve made you the best Christmas carols, best Christmas cookies, best Christmas TV episodes, and best Christmas movies all right here (#CheckTheLink). This year – continuing the bad versions that started on Thanksgiving – it’s the Worst Christmas Carols Ever Ranking!

  1. All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth β€” Is that Towlie from South Park? The melody is almost as unbearable as the voice and the whistling of the teeth.
  2. I want a hippo for Christmas β€” Highest annoying voice, melody and nonsensical lyrics.
  3. Here We Go A Wassailing β€” Somehow one minute and 12 seconds feels like hours.
  4. Dominic the donkey β€” If you like that, we can’t be friends … and I have Italian in my family, so don’t bring that up.
  5. Christmas shoes β€” That’s what I want … a depressing Christmas carol from a procrastinating guy.
  6. Did you know β€” Feels like a hymn. Also, we never hear from Mary.
  7. Grandma was run over by reindeer β€” Prove Santa Claus is real by celebrating granny being trampled on by animals? Secure.
  8. What kind of child is this? β€” What is that Christmas carol? Feels like a slumber party of a wannabe witcher ballad.
  9. baby it’s cold outside β€” It’s more about persuading someone to stay than anything Christmas-related.
  10. santa baby β€” Strangely sexualized Christmas song that also makes the woman sound like a gold digger? The 50’s were weird.
  11. This is Christmas for me β€” I don’t hate a cappella music, but this one is weird and doesn’t even feel like Christmas.
  12. The chipmunk song β€” Maybe once in the Christmas season. Maybe. Anything more and it causes headaches.
  13. Little drummer β€” I’m not sure which is more annoying … the infinite versions of this song or “par-rum, pum-pum-pum”.
  14. angels we heard on high β€” Glorrrrrrooorrrroorrrria. Pooh. And why do we care about ex Chelsea’s Day-o?
  15. Have a wonderful Christmas time – Thanks again Ryan George for pointing out the hilarious absurdity.

    And don’t forget the craziness of winter wonderland and Frosty the snowmaneven if it’s fun.

  • Almost made the worst cut: Hear the Herald Angels Sing and First Noel – I don’t to hate Classics (The Christmas Song is my absolute favourite) but the boring ones just don’t do it for me. Gimme holly, fun fun!
