Best Week 16 Fantasy Football Players by Position
Top 3 For Free
Patrick Mahomes – The Falcons just let Brady torch them. The front runner for MVP this season gets them at home this week so lets watch him work.
Deshaun Watson – He is just the do it all guy for Houston going up against a bad Bengals defense.
Aaron Rodgers – Expect the Packers to have to score points in this one. The Titans defense is more welcoming than anyone to let a QB have a big game against them.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Big Ben. Yes the Steelers are struggling but if they are going to get back to winning it will have to be with their leader. Everyone already knows they cannot run the ball and that will not change against Indianapolis tough defense. Ben can throw for 280 and 3 TDs.
Austin Ekeler – Ekeler has been making the list often because of his usage. Denver looked pitiful last week against Buffalo and even though Ekeler has not had that true breakout game yet, he is always within striking distance because of his volume.
Big Hen – One week it’s Tannehill. One week its Big Hen. Sometimes its both. Against the soft GB run defense, its Big Hen.
Cam Akers – The Rams are only good when they run the ball a lot and Akers has been the workhorse recently. Get the ball out of Goff’s hands and into the rookie running back’s hands.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Zack Moss. The Bills were very effective running the ball in the first matchup with the Patriots. Last week Moss showed some toughness and averaged 6.2 yards on his 13 carries against Denver so I think the Bills lean on him again.
Allen Robinson – First off, Robinson is finally coming back to Jacksonville to play against the team who did not keep him. Second, they have no one skilled enough to cover him.
Brandin Cooks – Cooks and Watson will have their way against Cincinnati. I expect an explosive day between the two because they are the Texans best offensive weapons.
Davante Adams – Lets try this again. Adams has made fantasy owners proud all season. Tennessee’s secondary has also made fantasy WRs proud.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Chase Claypool. Claypool has fallen off recently but the Steelers will need him to make a few big plays in this huge showdown against Indy. His size and athleticism could be the difference in this game.
Darren Waller – Waller has been hot recently. The Dolphins play a lot of man but do not have a LB or safety that can stick with him.
Dalton Schultz – Schultz and Andy Dalton have shown a bit of a connection since Dalton became the starter. Philly allows the 10th most points to TEs because their LB corp is so depleted.
Noah Fant – Fant had a nice game last week and was really the only bright spot for Denver minus Melvin Gordon. Look for Fant to continue to be the leading receiver.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Austin Hooper. Hoop has a good chance to do some damage against the Jets. Higbee had 4 for 67 and 1 TD last week.
Matt Gay – The Rams were embarrassed last week so this week I think they will be more conservative. As a result, I think they take the 3 when they can.
Jason Sanders – Sanders is always in a good spot because the Dolphins offense tends to stall out.
Cody Parkey – I like the Jets to play hard and not allow Cleveland to just walk into the endzone every drive. I think they settle for 3 more than they want to but continue to take the points and not risk losing to the Jets.
Baltimore – The Giants offense continues to lack big plays and the ability to score points.
Tampa Bay – A return TD on defense or special teams is in store for Tampa this week. Detroit stills plays aggressive which helps a defense have a chance for picks or fumbles because QBs will force throws or ball carries fight for extra yards and forget about ball security.
Arizona – The Cardinals did well Week 1 against SF’s offense. SF was 2/11 on 3rd down in that game and only scored 20 points. This week I think they are able to score on defense also.
