It was another solid week for our Industry Consensus picks which keep climbing up the overall standings in 8th place out of 24 experts graded this season. The Week 14 winner was DailyFantasyNerd, followed by RotoGrinders – Lineup Builder as it was another good week for the machines. However, for the season, FantasyTeamAdvice still leads the way with DailyFantasyNerd and DFSArmy rounding out the Top 3 with just three weeks left. There is still time for some movement among the top sites!
