Falcons Defense Shouldn't Be Trusted In Week 16

The Falcons Defense looks like a decent fantasy option for Week 16 on paper. They've had some standout efforts in the second half of the season and have allowed only two of their past six opponents to top 22 points in a game. In Week 16, they face a Jaguars team that is averaging 17.9... Read More

Keep Rolling With Younghoe Koo In Week 16

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo has excelled since joining the Falcons in November. He's hit 17-of-19 field goal attempts, including several from over 40 yards. He's attempted three field goals-or-more in all but one of his six games with the team. This week, the Falcons face the Jaguars in a game that should have a... Read More

Austin Hooper Is A Strong Starting Option In Week 16

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper has disappointed since his return from injury in Week 14. He has just five catches for 52 yards over the past two weeks combined. The team lost Calvin Ridley (abdominal) for the season prior to last week's game and that makes Hooper more of a focal point going forward.... Read More

Russell Gage Has Decent PPR Value In Week 16

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage has caught five or more passes in three of his past four games. With Calvin Ridley (abdominal) out for the season, Gage is now the team's de facto No. 2 receiver, even though he plays more of a slot receiver-like role. This week, the Falcons face the Jaguars in... Read More

Julio Jones Should Stay Hot Versus Jaguars

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones saw a season-high 20 targets in Week 15 against the 49ers.

Qadree Ollison Not A Starting Option in Week 16

Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison has three touchdowns over just 17 carries so far this year. That's as many rushing touchdowns as the team's top two running backs Devonta Freeman and Brian Hill combined and that duo has over 200 combined rushing opportunities on the year. Still, Ollison is nothing but a touchdown-or-bust running... Read More

Steer Clear Of Brian Hill In Week 16

Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill earned just one touch in Week 15 against the 49ers. It was a surprising development after he'd compiled 16 touches the previous two games as the team's No. 2 back behind Devonta Freeman.

Devonta Freeman Is An RB2 Option In Week 16

It hasn't been pretty for Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman this year, but he's still managed to deliver decent value through his workload alone. Freeman is averaging just 3.6 yards per carry this year and is yet to top 90 rushing yards in a game. However, he's a lock for double-digit carries on a... Read More

Matt Ryan Should Be Serviceable In Week 16

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan should be able to put together a solid line in Week 16 against the Jaguars. The Falcons have struggled to develop a run game all year, so Ryan will likely be relied upon to throw the ball around 40 times in the game. Star wide receiver Julio Jones is coming... Read More

Bills Defense Should Deliver In Week 16

The Bills Defense has been one of the top fantasy defenses all year and they'll look to keep rolling in Week 16 as they face the Patriots in New England. After a booming start to the year, the Patriots offense has really come down to earth. They rank amongst the middle-of-the-pack in most categories. This... Read More

Dawson Knox Can't Be Trusted In Week 16

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox was third on the team in receiving in Week 15. Unfortunately, that didn't mean much in a game where quarterback Josh Allen threw for only 139 yards.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley had an awful game in Week 15 against the Steelers, catching just one of his six targets for six yards.

John Brown Is A High-End WR3 In Week 16

Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown managed to break free from recent struggles with a 99-yard game in Week 15 against the Steelers. Brown had failed to top 40 receiving yards in his previous three games before Week 15. This week, Brown faces one of the league's toughest pass defenses, the Patriots. Quarterback Josh Allen...

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison (ankle) missed his first game of the year in Week 15 and is currently questionable for Week 16 against the Packers.

T.J. Yeldon Likely To Be Inactive In Week 16

Buffalo Bills running back T.J. Yeldon has been inactive for eight straight games, and that streak is likely to continue in Week 16 as the team's top two rushers -- Devin Singletary and Frank Gore -- are both healthy. Yeldon saw a little playing time earlier this year when Singletary was out, but the team has gone... Read More

Frank Gore Cannot Be Trusted In Week 16

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has had three straight absolute duds. You can't blame the Bills as they've tried to get him involved. Gore has 23 carries over the past three weeks but has managed just 32 yards on those carries, amounting to less than 1.5 yards per carry. Devin Singletary is the clear... Read More

Devin Singletary Is A Worthy RB2 In Week 16

Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary faces a tough matchup against the Patriots in Week 16, but his workload figures to be heavy enough that it will allow him to overcome it.

Josh Allen Faces Tough Week 16 Matchup Against Patriots
