Fantasy Football 2015: Week 16 Start/Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 16
December 24, 2015
It’s a fantasy football Thursday, and tonight Week 16 will kick off in the NFL. That means it’s time once again for our Start-Sit recommendations, so let’s take a closer look at some of those borderline calls and see what we can come up with.
USA TODAY Sports
Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins: Cousins is a great QB start if you need a signal-caller in Week 16. He’s on a great run right now, with 21 or more fantasy points in three of his last four outings.
Cousins gets a great matchup against the lowly Eagles this week, and with the Redskins playing for a division championship, he’ll be on point.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs appear to be headed to the playoffs, with a cupcake schedule in the last couple of games. That starts with a date against the Browns this weekend, and West should feast here.
Much like last week against the Ravens, West does well in matchup plays. He’s solidly in the RB2 category here.
Jarvis Landry, WR, Miami Dolphins: Landry hasn’t done very well over the past few games, but he could be in for a big day in Week 16.
The Dolphins will get the Colts this weekend, and Indianapolis is very permissive to opposing wide receivers. We see Landry having a great stat-line, even though the Fish have nothing left to play for.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers: Chances are, if you have Rodgers you’re starting him no matter what. That said, he’s got a rough matchup in Week 16, going up against the Cardinals pass defense.
We’re not telling you to bench Rodgers; just don’t expect a whole lot out of him this week. The Green Bay offense has looked sketchy recently, and Arizona seems to be coming together on D.
Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets: It’s time to tell Ivory to hit the pine. He’s had some great games this year, but after putting up a stinker in what should have been a great matchup against Dallas we’ve got him on a very short leash.
Ivory and the Jets will be playing for their season this weekend against a tough New England defense, and we just can’t trust him in the biggest week of the fantasy season.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals: We’re not sure what happened to Fitzgerald in the latter part of the season, but he’s been fantasy flimsy recently. He’s averaging fewer than six fantasy points over his last five games, and will go against a pretty stout Green Bay pass defense this weekend.
It was fun while it lasted, but it looks like Fitzgerald may have finally hit the proverbial wall.
