Week 16 Fantasy Football Start and Sit Calls
Congrats to all you fantasy players making it to the championship! Whether you’re playing for some cold-hard-cash or pure bragging rights, this is the best Sunday to watch football other than the Super Bowl. Here’s you start/sit advice for your championship week 16!
QB, Eli Manning, New York Giants
I thought the Giants game was at 4:30 last week, Apparently so did the Giants. However, with two winnable games to go I think Eli comes through in the clutch against Baltimore. If the Giants win their last two, they get at least a wild-card berth. 304 passing, 3 TD’s
QB, Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts
In the playoff mix and have a great opportunity to get a game against the lowly Chiefs. I think it’s a huge day for Luck. 322 passing, 3 TD’s
RB, Stevan Ridley, New England Patriots
With New England fighting for a playoff bye, look for the Patriots to jump out to a big lead and pound out the clock with Ridley. Jacksonville probably won’t put up much of a fight. 112 rushing, TD
RB, Vick Ballard, Indianaplois Colts
I like Ballard against the Chiefs since the Colts should get a nice lead and be content with running. That’s more opportunities for Ballard and I love him as a flex play this week. 98 rushing, TD, 4 receptions, 32 yards
WR, Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Decker had a great game against Baltimore last week and is becoming one of Peyton Manning’s favorite targets. I like the trend to continue against the Browns. 6 receptions 105 yards, TD
WR, Donnie Avery, Indianapolis Colts
Again…..another guy playing the Chiefs weak defense. Nice flex option in my opinion and I just have a hunch he has a really nice day. 5 receptions 78 yards, TD
TE, Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
Home game against the Raiders and I think Carolina has a few redzone chances. No better option than a big TE in the redzone. 5 receptions, 56 yards, TD
QB, Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
Wilson has been outstanding in his rookie season but the 49ers are riding high after a win in New England and he struggled against them last time.
RB, Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
This is a tough one but I am just so frightened by the 49ers defense. They are just way too good up front! Maybe a flex play at best.
RB, Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans
Cold game conditions and hard ground at Green Bay and the Packers will be keyed on him. Also, the Tintans will probably have to abondon the run early. Not even a flex play this week.
WR, Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints
Dallas is in the NFC East/Playoff hunt so the Cowboys will have to stop Colston to slow down the Saints. I think they have the personnel to do it.
WR, Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Came up big against the Patriots but Seattle’s secondary is much better than New England. Crabtree will be held in check.
TE, Jermichael Finley, Green Bay Packers
I don’t think QB Aaron Rodgers will have to throw much after halftime so Finley’s touches could get limited.
