FRAUD – Diontae "Stone Hands" Johnson
First off, let's give the guy some credit. Diontae Johnson still gets a ton of targets in this Pittsburgh Steelers offense, even though he still leads the league in dropped passes after Week 14 and has for consecutive weeks now. Unfortunately, this is a surefire way to eventually hit the bench and then eventually end up on the New York Jets. Johnson is too important to this Steelers team to drop key passes in key situations, plain and simple. Steelers tight end Eric Ebron makes the honorable mention list here as well. The Steelers basically just handed the Chiefs the #1 seed in the AFC, and it’s largely in part because of dropped passes. Johnson was benched in the first quarter of Pittsburgh's Sunday Night Football meltdown loss to the Buffalo Bills, and his stone hands simultaneously left fantasy football owners out in the cold.
FRAUD – Dan Bailey
This guy couldn’t kick a milk carton if he tried. Dan Bailey basically crushed the Minnesota Vikings every attempt at winning last week in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bailey not only missed three field goal attempts in Tampa, but he also missed an extra point. Bailey’s kicking woes actually began the week prior by missing a kick at home versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team he might soon find himself on if he doesn’t start making kicks. We're all well aware of Mike Zimmer's lack of patience for kicking woes in the past, and with the Vikings' playoff/wild card hopes hanging on by a mere thread, it's only a matter of time until the veteran Bailey gets kicked to the free agent curb for seemingly failing to do his only job.
FRAUD – Cincinnati Bengals Running Backs
You thought things couldn't get much worse in Cincinnati, didn't you? Well, things have gotten that much worse as each week has seemingly passed by in the land of Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals' running backs handed the Dallas Cowboys the ball in crucial moments of the game by fumbling the football away time and time again. First it was Giovani Bernard, then it was Trayveon Williams. It looks as if WR/KR Alex Erickson felt left out of the fumbling fiesta too, so he decided to show up late to the party as usual with another personally-wrapped giveaway for the Cowboys defense. The Bengals made the Cowboys look like a playoff team in Week 14, and let's not forget to give credit to head coach Zac Taylor here. He sat his players down for making those costly mistakes and just went to the next guy with butterfingers on the bench. The culture in the Cincinnati jungle is changing, for better or for worse, and we are watching it play out every Sunday for the Burrow-less Bungals. Can it get worse than this? Unfortunately, I think it can.
GOD – Mike Tomlin
Mike Tomlin went on live national TV and said that if his players don’t catch the ball, then he will find someone on his roster that will. Tomlin stuck to his guns and sat Diontae Johnson after a string of crucial drops against the Buffalo Bills during the first quarter on Sunday Night Football. Tomlin knows his team well, and he knew that he needed to say something before things spiraled out of control. He was a week late here though, as the Steelers pass catchers continued to drop the ball with consistency and basically gift-wrapped an easy win to the now AFC rival Bills. Tomlin doesn’t care if you play for the Pittsburgh Steelers or not, but if you are on the field and he is your boss, he has not problem sitting your ass down.
GOD – Miami Dolphins Defense
I know that this team got beat last week by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, but give the Miami Dolphins credit for Mahomes over three times here. Mahomes looked human for once, as he tossed three interceptions after throwing just two picks all season long heading into Week 14. The Dolphins almost doubled his turnovers up in one game. This Miami defense is for real, and they can cause any team issues if they make the playoffs. Just ask Mr. Mahomes himself, as the NFL's MVP frontrunner struggled early and often against the league's most lethal defensive back duo in Xavien Howard and Byron Jones.
GOD – Derrick Henry
Derrick Henry makes the God's list again after Week 14, and it’s well deserved. Tennessee's bell-cow running back pounded the rock against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars erupted for 200+ yards on the ground en route to a 31-10 blowout victory. Henry's 215 yards and two rushing touchdowns carried not just the Titans to a win, but also fantasy football owners to the semi-finals in the process.. Henry has three games left on the 2020 schedule, and he’s now just 468 yards shy of 2,000 for the season. This guy is like a tank rolling downhill. You simply can’t stop him, and you'd be hard-pressed to contain him too.
