Should you sit Russell Wilson in Week 14? (1:25)

Mike Clay says you should sit Russell Wilson, who faces a tough Jaguars defense in Week 14. (1:25)

In my experience, many fantasy football managers adopt the philosophy of ignoring matchups during the fantasy playoffs and going with the players they’ve relied upon all season just because that feels right. Words like "trust" and "loyalty" are used and hey, sometimes this can work out. It’s not a sure thing that fantasy’s top overall scorer in PPR formats entering Week 14 will struggle mightily against the league’s top defense, but to stubbornly leave Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in your starting lineup simply because he’s the reason your team made it to a relevant December matchup? I'm sorry, I just don’t see things that way.
