Justin Herbert

Justin Herbert looked like he was back to form in week 15 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Herbert threw for 314 yards and 2 TDs while rushing for 14 yards and 1 TD. This was really nice to see from Herbert who had been struggling over the past 2 weeks. Herbert will go from the defense allowing the 10th most points to fantasy QBs to the Broncos who are allowing the 9th most points. This is a slight upgrade in matchups for Herbert and I see him having another big week for your fantasy championship. Herbert will continue to a QB1 going into many leagues last week of the fantasy season, an incredible story for a rookie QB. Fantasy Projection: 307 yards 1.7 TDs passing 11 yards 0.1 TDs rushing

Ryan Tannehill

Tannehill is absolutely on fire after his incredible fantasy performance against the Detroit Lions in week 15. Tannehill took full advantage of a struggling Lions defense and posted 273 yards and 3 TDs. He also added a surprising 21 yards and 2 TDs rushing leading him to one of the best QB performances on the week and his best on the year. Tannehill will take on the Green Bay Packers in week 16 who are allowing the 9th least points to opposing fantasy QBs. This will be a much tougher matchup for Tannehill, but the game flow should lead him to passing more to keep up with the Packers high powered offense. Overall, I think Tannehill will be a strong play in your championship week, but I would temper expectations from his sky high week 15 performance. Fantasy Projection: 263 yards 2 TDs passing 18 yards 0.1 TDs rushing

Aaron Jones

Aaron Jones has had some up and down weeks over the past 4 weeks, but week 15 was definitely an up week for the start GB Packers RB. Jones faced the Carolina Panthers and ran up and down the field agaisnt them for 145 yards and 1 TD while adding 3 receptions for 13 yards. This was a huge game for Jones to the delight of all of his fantasy owners. Jones will face the Titans in week 16 who are allowing the 8th most points to opposing fantasy RBs. The Titans defense has looked incredibly week especially as of late and this should be a welcomed opponent for Aaron Jones managers. Fantasy Projection: 87 yards 0.6 TDs 4 receptions 34 yards 0.2 TDs

David Montgomery

David Montgomery has continued his world beating performance tour to 4 weeks long after week 15. Montgomery took on the Minnesota Vikings in week 15 and posted 146 yards and 2 TDs rushing while adding 1 reception for 16 yards through the air. This was the top RB performance in most league formats and most definitely helped you win your sem-final matchup. Over the past 4 weeks montgomery has averaged over 100 yards rushing and 1.5 TDs while adding 34 yards per game receiving. If things weren’t going well enough for Montgomery he will face the Jaguars in week 16 who are allowing the 3rd MOST points to opposing fantasy RBs. Montgomery will easily be one of the top options in your championship week. Fantasy Projection: 95 yards 0.6 TDs rushing 3 receptions 25 yards 0.1 TDs

Davante Adams

Davante Adams had a tough week 15 only catching 7 passes for 42 yards against the Panthers defense. This was a big let down for Adam’s fantasy managers, but if you were lucky enough to make it to week 16 he could reward you with a big championship week. Besides the week 15 hiccup, Adam’s has been other worldly and may continue to be against the Titans in week 16 who are allowing the 3rd MOST points to opposing fantasy WRs. I expect and huge week from Adam’s in week 16 agaisnt a struggling Titans defense with a fairly high powered offense. Fantasy Projection: 9 receptions 104 yards 0.7 TDs

Calvin Ridley

In the absence of Julio Jones, Falcons WR Calvin Ridley had a top WR game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Ridley took full advantage of the matchup and the increased workload when he caught 10 passes for 163 yards a 1 TD. We all know Ridley is a top receiver in the leauge , and had a strong week last week, but hadn’t had a 25+ point outburst since very early in the season. It appears as if Ridley is back to his top tier WR form just in time for your fantasy championship. The main issue for Ridley in week 16 will be his matchup against the 2nd toughest defense in the Chiefs. I don’t expect as big of a performance as this past week, but you are still going to play Ridley as a WR1. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 89 yards 0.7 TDs

11Eric Ebron PIT vs. IND9.6
12Evan Engram NYG at BAL9.5

Darren Waller

Well there’s Raiders TE Darren Waller going absolutely nuts again to win you a fantasy semi-final. Waller had a masive game especially for a TE in week 5 agiainst the LA Chargers with 9 receptions for 150 yards and 1 TD, most of this production came from backup QB Marcus Mariota. Waller is an every week stud and is a real difference maker for your fantasy team. Waller will face the Dolphins in week 16 who are the 5th toughest against fantasy TEs. Regardless of this tougher matchups I expect Waller will have a top 2 week at the position. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 82 yards 0.2 TDs
