Week 16 Starts and Sits: The Championship

A guide on who to start and sit in fantasy football for Week 16

Starts

Quarterbacks

Jacoby Brissett – IND vs. CAR

Brissett has not played very well as of late, but he could be the difference in your championship final. Look for Jacoby to light up this Carolina defense that has been terrible, especially against the pass.

Dak Prescott – DAL vs. PHI

This is a risky play because of the Dak’s hand injury. However, this game means a ticket to the playoffs for both teams. Therefore I expect Dak to do everything he can to beat the Eagles. The Eagles have had a decent run defense the last few weeks. Expect the Cowboys to heavily use the passing game to beat this team.

Running Backs

Devonta Freeman – ATL vs. JAC

The Jaguars have been terrible at stopping the run this year, especially recently. When Freeman faces teams that are top-ten in allowing points to opposing running-backs, he shines. Expect freeman to be a PPR machine.

Chris Carson – SEA vs. ARI

Carson is coming off a hot game in which he scored 27 fantasy points. Look for him to continue to do that against an overall bad Arizona defense.

Wide Receivers

DeVante Parker – MIA vs. CIN

Aside from going down after the first quarter in week 14, Parker has had at least 15 fantasy points in each game since week 11. He also has the largest share of targets. With his new $40 million deal, the Dolphins have confidence in their young receiver and are going to utilize him as much as possible.

D.J. Moore – CAR vs. IND

D.J. Moore has been the most consistent part of the Panthers offense aside from Christian McCaffrey. The Colts are top-ten in points allowed to QBs. I expect more upside from Moore.

Amari Cooper – DAL vs. PHI

Cooper posted a dud last week, but I expect him to bounce back against one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Dak will need to throw in this game, so expect him to utilize his best pass catcher. Overall, due to the quality of both defenses, I expect a higher scoring game.

Sits

Quarterbacks

Hopefully you sat both quarterbacks in the Buffalo vs. New England game.

Running Backs

Aaron Jones – GB vs. MIN

Aaron Jones has enjoyed a great fantasy season mainly due to his touches around the goal line. However, expect Jones to not get as many opportunities against a stout Vikings run defense.

Wide Receivers

Kenny Golladay – DET vs. DEN

Golladay has enjoyed a great season this year despite a Pro Bowl snub. However, the Broncos secondary has been great, especially with Chris Harris out there. Expect Golladay to have a performance under ten points.
