Week 16 Home

Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em
Week 16

QB
Must Start ‘em – Philip Rivers @ New York Jets
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Jets are giving up the sixth most points per game to quarterbacks. Also, the Jets have given up 27 touchdowns through the air on the season and only have ten interceptions. Before facing Kansas City, Rivers had four straight games posting either two touchdowns or 300 yards passing, he looks to get back on track.

Start ‘em – Nick Foles vs Oakland Raiders
Points Scored:
Rank:

If Minnesota wins Saturday night, fire up Nick Foles. The Eagles would then be playing to win home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Raiders doubled their interceptions last week against the Cowboys against Dak, who has thrown two or more interceptions in three of his last five games. The last time Foles matched up against the Raiders was back in 2013, when he threw seven touchdowns!

Start ‘em – DeShone Kizer @ Chicago Bears
Points Scored:
Rank:

DeSanta Klaus is going to pay off in the final week and for one reason. Josh Gordon is going to get so much separation that Kizer can’t miss him. The Browns are desperate for a win and this is their best shot at doing so.

Must Sit ‘em – Jimmy Garoppolo vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Points Scored:
Rank:

This will be a tough matchup for Jimmy, going against the best defense against quarterbacks. Jacksonville is one of five teams with either more interceptions or just as many as touchdowns. Stray away.

Sit ‘em – Jacoby Brissett @ Baltimore Ravens
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Ravens are right behind the Jaguars in fewest points given up to the positon. Baltimore is +9 on interceptions to touchdowns allowed. The Ravens defense has allowed fewer touchdowns and has more interceptions than the Jaguars, but allow more yards.

Sit ‘em – Kirk Cousins vs Denver Broncos
Points Scored:
Rank:

This Redskins offense isn’t what we thought it would be all season. There are injuries all over the place on this roster. The Broncos are still one of the better defenses against quarterbacks as they rank tenth.

RB
Must Start ‘em – Dion Lewis vs Buffalo Bills
Points Scored:
Rank:

This Buffalo team has allowed the most points per game to running backs. Also, with Burkhead being out until the playoffs, James White would be someone to consider as well. Buffalo has allowed 17 total touchdowns on the season.

Start ‘em – Latavius Murray @ Green Bay Packers
Points Scored:
Rank:

Green Bay has allowed the third most points per game to the position. Murray has saw 15 or more carries in eight of his last nine games. Latavius has also posted a touchdown in five of the nine games. Green Bay has allowed 12 total touchdowns, so Jerick McKinnon can be an option as well.

Start ‘em – Joe Mixon or Giovani Bernard vs Detroit Lions
Points Scored:
Rank:

Whoever is starting in this game, is looking at a nice matchup. The Lions have allowed 16 total touchdowns and are giving up the fourth most points per game to the position. The Bengals should hopefully be able to stay in this game.

Must Sit ‘em – Marshawn Lynch @ Philadelphia Eagles
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Eagles have been on the road their last four out of five games and it showed the past couple weeks. Being able to stay home and having an extra days rest should provide for the run defense to return to form as they’re number two in the league against running backs. Having allowed only six touchdowns on the ground, run away from beast mode.

Sit ‘em – Jamaal Williams vs Minnesota Vikings
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Vikings are the best team in the league against running backs and the only one allowing fewer than 20 points to the position. The Vikings have only allowed eight total touchdowns on the season to backs.

Sit ‘em – Peyton Barber @ Carolina Panthers
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Panthers are third in the league against running backs. Like Minnesota, Carolina has allowed only eight touchdowns as well to the running back position.

WR
Must Start ‘em – JuJu Smith-Schuster @ Houston Texans
Points Scored:
Rank:

JuJu draws an easy matchup with Antonio Brown scheduled to miss some time. The Texans rank fourth in most points allowed to wide receivers. The Texans have allowed 168 yards per game and 16 touchdowns on the season.

Start ‘em – Doug Baldwin @ Dallas Cowboys
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Cowboys are behind the Texans in most points per game given up to receivers at fifth. Having allowed 19 touchdowns and 147 yards per game to the position. Crabtree scored two touchdowns on SNF against this Cowboys secondary.

Start ‘em – Cooper Kupp @ Tennessee Titans
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Titans are allowing the tenth most points per game to the position. The Titans have allowed 15 touchdowns and 148 yards per game on the season. In the previous week, the Kupp only saw three targets, but seven weeks prior saw five plus each week. It was the Gurley show last week, but the Titans should slow Gurley down a little bit to the red carpet the Seahawks showed.

Must Sit ‘em – Marquise Goodwin vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Points Scored:
Rank:

The toughest defense to get anything going against. They’re only allowing 117 yards per game and eight touchdowns on the season.

Sit ‘em – TY Hilton @ Baltimore Ravens
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Ravens have allowed the fifth fewest points per game to the position. As stated earlier, they’ve gotten more interceptions than touchdowns allowed. Only five touchdowns have gone to receivers on the year and 139 yards per game.

Sit ‘em – Robby Anderson vs Los Angeles Chargers
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Chargers are right behind the Ravens in points allowed. Having allowed only 11 touchdowns and 120 yards per game on the year. If McCown was still starting, I probably wouldn’t have put Anderson on here.

TE
Must Start ‘em – Ricky Seals-Jones vs New York Giants
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Giants are allowing the most points per game to the position. They’ve allowed 12 touchdowns on the year. Giants are giving up an average of five catches and 64 yards per game.

Start ‘em – Jesse James @ Houston Texans
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Texans are allowing the sixth most points per game to tight ends. Giving up on average 59 yards and five catches per game. They’ve allowed eight touchdowns on the year.

Start ‘em – Adam Shaheen vs Cleveland Browns
Points Scored:
Rank:

If Shaheen is able to get clearance, he draws an easy matchup. The Browns are giving up the second most points per game to tight ends. They’ve allowed ten touchdowns on the year.

Must Sit ‘em – George Kittle vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Points Scored:
Rank:

Jimmy isn’t going to have anywhere to go with the ball, because sacksonville will be all over him. Jacksonville is the best team against tight ends and if you’re reaching for one, don’t go to Kittle. They’ve allowed only three touchdowns on the year.

Sit ‘em – Greg Olsen vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Points Scored:
Rank:

The Bucs are another team that have allowed only three touchdowns to tight ends as well. With Kwon back on defense, the Bucs are going to be able to slow up Olsen. The Bucs are the fourth best team against tight ends. Giving up an average of four catches and 43 yards per game.

Sit ‘em – Cameron Brate @ Carolina Panthers
Points Scored:
Rank:

Luke is going to have to do it all with Thomas Davis out for a game after his hit on Adams last week. The Panthers are allowing the sixth fewest points per game to tight ends. Allowing seven touchdowns on the year and allowing three catches and 38 yards per game.

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS, HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS YEAR!
