Week 16 fantasy Rankings

by Douglas Menefee updated 12/22/19

Please follow me on twitter if you like this content. Then you will know when my rankings for this season and next are released. These rankings got a lot of traction so I am going to continue to do them but this website is actually about a football card game. You can check that out on the home page. Thanks for visiting and good luck in your fantasy championships.

The rankings here are slightly contrarian to the normal de-facto general ranking meaning there are spots I might not play it safe. I’ve included some useful data to help in your decision making and color coded the rankings by tiers. Use the rankings as a guide not a “Holy Grail” and adjust rankings based on your intuition after analyzing. Views are my own. Always be responsible.

Make sure to scroll down to the Key at the bottom so you can see how to read the data.

With a high game total for the Seahawks and Cardinals game I am lowering my concern with Arizona keeping pace. Seahawks will be without Quandra Diggs who is out with an ankle injury that occurred last week which raises the ceiling of both Murray and Wilson. Keep track of Christian Kirk’s injury.

The concern over Dak Prescott might be enough to lower him a few spots. I have Dak in a championship game and unsure if I want to keep him in as a start. I will probably be starting Kyler Murray.

With Tannehill possibly having nothing to play for his expectation maybe lowered. Pick up Dion Lewis if you need him. If it rains in Miami lower the expectation of the kicker if their are winds.
