Week 14 of the Page 2 Fantasy Football Challenge is upon us. Each week, a guest picker chooses QB, WR and RB. The only players off-limits are those selected by the previous week’s guest picker. The guest — Paul Lambert, aka “Meatsauce” from the Power Trip morning show on KFAN weekdays — will go head-to-head against Star Tribune writer Michael Rand, who is not allowed to pick anyone ranked in the top 10 by NFL.com experts at their respective positions:

paul lambert’S WEEK 14 FANTASY PICKS

QB: Tom Brady, Patriots

NFL.com QB projection: No. 2

Matchup: Browns

One, he is the best looking QB in the league, he’s the starting QB on my fantasy team, and I need him to perform well. (I need the money).

 

 

 

 

RB: Ray Rice, Ravens

NFL.com RB projection: No. 37

Matchup: Vikings

He is on my fantasy team, I’m a huge wild rice soup fan, and he plays the Vikings’ 31st-ranked run defense. (I need to beat my buddy for the second time in two weeks in fantasy).

 

WR: Victor Cruz, Giants

NFL.com WR projection: No. 50

Matchup: Chargers
