If you are still reading this that means that you are in the Super Bowl or are in the running for total points. Good job! Good luck!

 

Quarterbacks

If you are streaming Quarterback’s at this point of the season our weekly projections are exactly what you need. They are an excellent tool for playing matchups especially at the stream QB, Defense, and Kicker positions.

 

Running Backs

Karlos Williams BUF – Did he get dropped a few weeks back? He is our #1 pickup of the week as a week 16 fill in for LeSean McCoy owners that need some help. He has a great matchup at home against the soft Cowboys defense.

Christine Michael SEA – It looked to me that Michael is the current lead back and he was running as though he realized this was his last chance. The way Russell Wilson has playing there should be some open holes for him to run this weekend against the Rams.

Cameron Artis-Payne CAR – CAP was the lead rushing running back in Carolina this weekend, and as we suspected is the fill-in for Jonathon Stewart should he go down. We suspected this injury would have occurred much sooner in the year. We had it backwards though this year: everyone but Jonathon Stewart was going to get injured in 2016.

Donald Brown SD – Sorry about your luck.

 

Wide Receiver

Reuben Randle NYG –  With Odell sidelined with a one-game suspension for his on the field bitch-shit antics Randle slides in to the #1 wide receiver role.

Julian Edelman NE – Was he dropped and available for pickup? He could be the Super Bowl difference this all important week 16 for you and for the Patriots. Looks like Edelman will be back.

Jermaine Kearse SEA – Suddenly this Seattle offense has a huge passing attack. All three Seattle wide receivers are startable next week.

Tight End

Will Tye NYG – He might be the only tight end available that I would be willing to take a one week flier on. He should be targeted heavily next week with ODB suspended for week 16.

Luke Wilson SEA – Not in love with this pickup, but he is in the lights out Seattle passing game now, he’s available in your league, and he should get some targets next week at home against the Rams.
