Week 16 will decide most fantasy football championships — one weekend where owners will either feel the elation of a mission accomplished or fall short of a goal they’ve pursued since late summer.The slate has one potential must-stack affair Lawrence Guy Color Rush Jersey , Steelers-Saints, and won’t be too hurt by the weather. If there is a theme to this week, it’s that several of the league’s top defenses collide with high-end offensive attacks.START: Drew Brees, QB, Saints: It’s fantasy blasphemy to consider sitting Brees, but he has been in a skid that has seen him average 175.5 yards in his last four games with a 6-4 TD-INT ratio. Brees has gone three straight games without throwing multiple touchdown passes but should return to his MVP-caliber self against a Steelers defense that is 21st in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Pittsburgh has allowed more than 900 passing yards in its last three games. Brees is too good to remain this bad, and with the Saints offense usually lethal at home, Brees has a great chance for redemption at the biggest moment of the fantasy season.SIT: Phillip Rivers, QB, Chargers: The Ravens pass defense has been in lockdown mode all season, allowing just three quarterbacks to eclipse 20 fantasy points. Rivers can’t be the fourth, as he will be without receiver Keenan Allen (hip pointer) in a high-stakes matchup against a Baltimore defense that is third in fewest net passing yards allowed and first in fewest yards per attempt. It’s hard to envision Rivers finishing Saturday night with more than 220 yards and a touchdown pass, numbers that won’t win many fantasy titles.START: Alshon Jeffrey, WR, Eagles: He’s been targeted 17 times in the last two games and comes off his best outing of the season, an eight-catch, 160-yard performance in the win at the Rams. Nick Foles was able to get Jeffery involved downfield in a manner that Carson Wentz couldn’t. The Texans defense has been lit up by T.Y. Hilton (Colts) and Robby Anderson (Jets) in the last two games. Houston is 27th in receiving yards allowed and has given up 24 touchdown passes. If Foles gets Jeffery in sync from the outset, starting Jeffery as a WR2 will lend to totals more suited for a WR1.SIT: David Johnson, RB, Cardinals: Johnson scored his first rushing touchdown in more than a month but managed just 33 yards on 11 carries in the loss to the Falcons. He’ll have little value in non-PPR formats even though the Rams are 21st against the run and are one of three teams (Patriots, Chiefs) that allow at least 5 yards per carry. Even in a PPR league https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/David-Andrews-Jersey , Johnson’s production will be limited as Los Angeles allows an average of just 30.4 receiving yards per game to opposing running backs, fifth-fewest overall. If there are better options on the roster, there’s no shame in sitting Johnson down.START: Marlon Mack, RB, Colts: Perhaps the biggest surprise of Week 15, Mack tore through the vaunted Cowboys run defense for 139 yards with a pair of scores and gets a great follow-up against the Giants, who are 28th against the run. Mack has three touchdowns in his last two games, and even if he’s not much of a factor in the passing game, he should be good for his fourth game this season of at least 20 touches. If so, look for Mack to put up RB1-level numbers.SIT: Tom Brady, QB, Patriots: The Bills allow the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks and have held passers to less than 180 yards in eight of their last 10 games. Brady did throw for 324 yards against Buffalo in a Week 8 win but did not throw a touchdown. He has attempted at least 31 passes in all but one game this season, so the opportunities will be there for Brady. Still, it’s tough to do much damage to a Bills team that leads the league in fewest net passing yards allowed.START: Evan Engram, TE, Giants: Odell Beckham Jr. is likely done for the season, so Engram stands a great chance to at least approach the season-best 12 targets he had last week against the Titans. He’s had three straight games of at least 66 receiving yards, and while he hasn’t scored since Week 8, the high volume of opportunities works in Engram’s favor when he squares up against a Colts defense that leads the league in receiving yards per game allowed to opposing tight ends (72.6).SIT: Jaylen Samuels, RB/TE, Steelers: James Conner is expected to return to the lineup Steve Grogan Color Rush Jersey , but Samuels will still have a significant role in the offense. Either way, Samuels and Pittsburgh’s ground attack gets a bad draw against the Saints and their league-best run defense.START: Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans: With running back Lamar Miller’s status in question, Watson won’t have a problem putting the ball up frequently against the Eagles and their 31st-ranked pass defense. Watson hasn’t eclipsed the 300-yard mark since Week 5, but he’s completed better than 70 percent of his attempts in four straight games and his running skills bring an added element to a formula that should result in a huge afternoon.SIT: D.J. Moore, WR, Panthers: Taylor Heinicke makes his first career start, dropping the value of Moore coming off a Week 15 loss to the Saints that saw him manage only four touches. This shapes up for a heavy workload for running back Christian McCaffrey, as Heinicke won’t be expected to produce much against a Falcons defense that has allowed 28 touchdown passes and is 31st in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. On Sunday, the New England Patriots will play their first rematch of the season when they travel to Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots have dominated the two teams’ first encounter in week four, winning with a final score of 38-7. However, a lot has happened since then: New England got into a rhythm and now looks like one of the AFC’s best team. Miami, meanwhile, has mightily struggled with consistency.Let’s take a closer look at how the two squads have changed over the past two months.The Patriots’ wide receiver group looks drastically improved...In week four, the Patriots’ starting wide receiver trio consisted of Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson. Of the group, only Hogan still plays regular snaps on offense as the spots previously held by Dorsett and Patterson have been taken over by Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. Edelman missed week four due to a suspension, while Gordon was active for the first time as a Patriot but saw only limited action. All in all, it is no stretch to say that the group is a far better one at the top now than it was in late September....while the Dolphins’ was bitten hard by the injury bugMiami’s wide receiver depth, meanwhile Trey Flowers Jersey , has take a turn for the worse. While the top two options from week four — Danny Amendola and Kenny Stills are still with the team and consistently producing — their next two players are both on injured reserve: Albert Wilson was moved to the list in late October because of a hip issue, Jakeem Grant in late November due to an Achilles injury. In the meantime, DeVante Parker returned to serve as the Dolphins’ number three wide receiver.Miami’s best cornerback might be outThere have been few bright spots for the Dolphins since they visited the Patriots two months ago. One might be the continued development of cornerback Xavien Howard: the third-year man has grown into Miami’s best defensive back and arguably player — one that leads the team with seven interceptions. Howard was also on the field in week four as he was the last time New England visited Florida (in week 14 of the 2017 season, when he registered two interceptions). However, it looks increasingly likely that the 25-year old will be out on Sunday because of a knee injury.Dont’a Hightower, J.C. Jackson play bigger rolesDespite allowing just eight points against Miami in week four, New England’s defense started the season inconsistently. The group has grown significantly since then, though, and the increased usage and improved play of linebacker Dont’a Hightower might be a reason why. The on-field signal caller played just 26 of 49 snaps (53%) against the Dolphins the last time, and this number should be expected to look far higher this year. Likewise, cornerback J.C. Jackson might also see more snaps than he did in week four. The undrafted rookie played just 12 (24%) but has recently served as the team’s third corner.The Dolphins’ center-quarterback exchange is not at 100%When Miami visited Foxboro in late September, quarterback Ryan Tannehill and center Daniel Kilgore were both at full strength. Since then, however, both have suffered injuries. Tannehill missed five games after hurting his shoulder — Sunday’s game will be his third back from the injury — while Kilgore was placed on injured reserve with a torn triceps he suffered against the Patriots. He might be replaced in the lineup by Jake Brendel, who himself missed yesterday’s practice due to a calf injury.New England’s backfield has more depthThe first Patriots-Dolphins game was the breakout for rookie running back Sony Michel. The first-round pick rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries and has since taken over lead-back responsibilities for New England, showing significant growth as a player over the last two months — despite a knee injury costing him two games. The Patriots’ depth at the position has also improved since week four, as Rex Burkhead returned off injured reserve last week to complete New England’s potent backfield trio alongside Michel and James White.
