Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em





Fantasy Football: Start Em, Sit Em: Week 16

Rather than quickly listing start em and sit em players on my Week 15 NFL Picks page, I thought I'd devote a new page for this. Follow @walterfootball for updates.



Indianapolis Colts (3-11) at Baltimore Ravens (8-6)

Start Em:
  • T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts
    T.Y. Hilton is a solid start with the Ravens missing Jimmy Smith.

  • Mike Wallace, WR, Ravens
    Mike Wallace is finally playing well, and he has an easy matchup.

  • Ben Watson, TE, Ravens
    The Colts struggle against tight ends, so perhaps Ben Watson will score again.

  • Obvious Starts:
    IND: None.
    BAL: Ravens Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • Frank Gore, RB, Colts
    The Ravens are pretty strong against the run with Brandon Williams healthy.

  • Alex Collins, RB, Ravens
    The Colts are actually solid against the run.

    Minnesota Vikings (11-3) at Green Bay Packers (7-7)

    Start Em:
  • Latavius Murray, RB, Vikings
    The Packers have grown weaker against the run recently.

  • Obvious Starts:
    MIN: WR Stefon Diggs, WR Adam Thielen (PPR), TE Kyle Rudolph, Vikings Defense.
    GB: QB Aaron Rodgers, WR Davante Adams, WR Randall Cobb (all if Rodgers and Adams play).

    Sit Em:
  • Jamaal Williams, RB, Packers
    Jamaal Williams has a tough matchup, and Aaron Jones might get work.

  • Jordy Nelson, WR, Packers
    Jordy Nelson has to battle Xavier Rhodes.

    Detroit Lions (8-6) at Cincinnati Bengals (5-9)

    Start Em:
  • Marvin Jones, WR, Lions
    Marvin Jones has a much easier matchup this week.

  • Obvious Starts:
    DET: WR Golden Tate.
    CIN: RB Joe Mixon, RB Giovani Bernard (PPR), WR A.J. Green.

    Sit Em:
  • Ameer Abdullah, RB, Lions
    The Lions have moved on from Ameer Abdullah.




    Los Angeles Chargers (7-7) at New York Jets (5-9)

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    LAC: QB Philip Rivers, RB Melvin Gordon, WR Keenan Allen.
    NYJ: None.

    Sit Em:
  • Hunter Henry, TE, Buccaneers
    Hunter Henry has a kidney laceration.

  • Jets Offense
    There's a colossal difference between Josh McCown and Bryce Petty. I wouldn't start any of the Jet players with Petty under center.

    Los Angeles Rams (10-4) at Tennessee Titans (8-6)

    Start Em:
  • Cooper Kupp, WR, Rams (PPR)
    Cooper Kupp can continue to be started in PPR leagues.

  • Rishard Matthews, WR, Titans
    Rishard Matthews can be started, as the Rams are missing their top cornerback.

  • Obvious Starts:
    LAR: QB Jared Goff, RB Todd Gurley, WR Robert Woods, Rams Defense.
    TEN: TE Delanie Walker.

    Sit Em:
  • Sammy Watkins, WR, Rams
    Sammy Watkins will see fewer targets with Robert Woods back.

    Cleveland Browns (0-13) at Chicago Bears (4-9)

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    CLE: WR Josh Gordon.
    CHI: Bears Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • Isaiah Crowell, RB, Browns
    Isaiah Crowell isn't very good, and the Bears are strong against the run with Danny Trevathan on the field.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-10) at Carolina Panthers (10-4)

    Start Em:
  • Devin Funchess, WR, Panthers
    Devin Funchess has a nice matchup against Tampa's woeful secondary.

  • Obvious Starts:
    TB: WR Mike Evans.
    CAR: QB Cam Newton, RB Christian McCaffrey (PPR), TE Greg Olsen.

    Sit Em:
  • Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers
    I can't see Jonathan Stewart repeating what he did a couple of weeks ago, especially with Christian McCaffrey getting more carries this past Sunday.

  • Buccaneers Running Backs
    Doug Martin has been benched, while Peyton Barber will have trouble against Carolina's strong run defense.

    Atlanta Falcons (9-5) at New Orleans Saints (10-4)

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    ATL: QB Matt Ryan, RB Devonta Freeman, WR Julio Jones.
    NO: QB Drew Brees, RB Mark Ingram, RB Alvin Kamara, WR Michael Thomas.

    Denver Broncos (5-9) at Washington Redskins (6-8)

    Start Em:
  • Obvious Starts:
    DEN: Broncos Defense.
    WAS: Redskins Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • C.J. Anderson, RB, Broncos
    The Redskins are inconsistent against the run, but I don't think C.J. Anderson can repeat what he did last week.

  • Josh Doctson, WR, Redskins
    Josh Doctson will be matched up with Aqib Talib this week.

    Miami Dolphins (6-7) at Kansas City Chiefs (7-6)

    Start Em:
  • Kenyan Drake, RB, Dolphins
    The Chiefs aren't very good against pass-catching running backs.

  • Alex Smith, QB, Chiefs
    Alex Smith has a great matchup this week, as Miami's back seven is pretty atrocious.

  • Obvious Starts:
    MIA: WR Jarvis Landry.
    KC: RB Kareem Hunt, WR Tyreek Hill, TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • DeVante Parker, WR, Dolphins
    DeVante Parker has been mailing it in, so he's tough to trust right now.

    Buffalo Bills (8-6) at New England Patriots (11-3)

    Start Em:
  • Dion Lewis, RB, Patriots
    Dion Lewis will get more touches with Rex Burkhead hurt, and Buffalo has been much worse versus the run since trading Marcell Dareus.

  • Obvious Starts:
    BUF: RB LeSean McCoy.
    NE: QB Tom Brady, WR Brandin Cooks, TE Rob Gronkowski, Patriots Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Bills
    Kelvin Benjamin is banged up and may not be 100 percent.

    Jacksonville Jaguars (10-4) at San Francisco 49ers (4-10)

    Start Em:
  • Dede Westbrook, WR, Jaguars
    Dede Westbrook is very talented, and he's becoming a greater part of the offense with each passing week.

  • Keelan Cole, WR, Jaguars
    Marqise Lee sprained his ankle, so Keelan Cole can be started against a poor secondary.

  • Obvious Starts:
    JAX: RB Leonard Fournette.
    SF: None.

    Sit Em:
  • Carlos Hyde, RB, 49ers
    The Jaguars are stout against the run.

  • Marquise Goodwin, WR, 49ers
    Marquise Goodwin has been hot lately, but he faces a tough Jacksonville secondary this week.

    New York Giants (2-12) at Arizona Cardinals (6-8)

    Start Em:
  • Evan Engram, TE, Giants
    Arizona has been struggling against tight ends, so Evan Engram has a nice matchup.

  • Obvious Starts:
    NYG: None.
    ARZ: WR Larry Fitzgerald.

    Sit Em:
  • Orleans Darkwa, RB, Giants
    The Cardinals have been difficult to run against.

  • Sterling Shepard, WR, Giants
    Sterling Shepard has to take on Patrick Peterson this week.

    Seattle Seahawks (8-6) at Dallas Cowboys (8-6)

    Start Em:
  • Marquise Goodwin, WR, 49ers
    Marquise Goodwin was coming on, even before he had Jimmy Garoppolo throwing to him.

  • Obvious Starts:
    SEA: QB Russell Wilson, WR Doug Baldwin, TE Jimmy Graham.
    DAL: QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR Dez Bryant, Cowboys Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • Seahawks Running Backs
    Mike Davis has looked good, but the Cowboys are better versus the run with Sean Lee.

    Pittsburgh Steelers (11-3) at Houston Texans (4-10)

    Start Em:
  • Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster, WRs, Steelers
    Pittsburgh's second and third receivers can be started with Antonio Brown out.

  • Lamar Miller, RB, Texans
    The Steelers are worse against the run without Ryan Shazier.

  • Obvious Starts:
    PIT: QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell.
    HOU: WR DeAndre Hopkins.

    Sit Em:
  • No one of note

    Oakland Raiders (6-8) at Philadelphia Eagles (12-2)

    Start Em:
  • Eagles Wide Receivers
    Both Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor performed well last week, and they have an easy matchup Monday night.

  • Obvious Starts:
    OAK: WR Michael Crabtree.
    PHI: TE Zach Ertz, Eagles Defense.

    Sit Em:
  • Eagles Running Backs
    The Raiders aren't bad against the run, and they'll be able to stack the box with Carson Wentz out.
