I don't believe sitting in cryovac does much for tenderness or aging. I would probably put them in the freezer since you are 14 days away. I'm like you, the meat sitting the fridge for two weeks just seems too darn long
Just remember when again beef go by the Case date not the store tag date... I freeze all the time don't see much of a difference good luck and happy smoking
Since the sell by date is past your use date it should be fine to let it sit in the fridge til then...that is what the retail would do till it sells or has to be pulled. However freezing is ok to. Just remember it will take several days to thaw in the fridge.
As to aging....the research that i have done on aging indicates that you are not going to get any benefit at this point.
