Week 16 fantasy football rankings: Go win yourself a championship

It's the fantasy football championship. That's it. This team, which didn't exist five months ago, now has a chance to make you really happy (and possibly lots of money). Fantasy football is a journey like no other. Chances were you wouldn't make it, but you beat them and now you are one win away from finishing victorious in 2020.
As I wrote last week, you make sure that ultimately you are putting up a lineup that you are comfortable with, but my leaderboard is meant to help you make the tough decisions ahead of your championship.
Good luck.
QB
1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs (v Atlanta Falcons)
2. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (v Tennessee Titans)
3. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (v San Francisco 49ers)
4. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles (at Dallas Cowboys)
Three. That's it. There are only three quarterbacks I'm ready to start in the fantasy football championships before Hurts. The Eagles' pick in the second round was excellent in his first two starts and in week 15 he proved that he can make it through the air in addition to the ground. The rookie threw for 338 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions, while finishing as the No. 1 Fantasy Football QB. In week 16 he gets a matchup against the Cowboys, who gave the passers-by the 14th Fantasy Points this season. So it is by no means a matchup to be afraid of. Start hurts with confidence in your fantasy finale.
5. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans (v Cincinnati Bengals)
6. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (with New England Patriots)
7.Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens (v New York Giants)
8. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (at Detroit Lions)
9. Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers (v Denver Broncos)
10. Mitch Trubisky, Chicago Bears (at Jacksonville Jaguars)
Before this season started, you would surely have made fun of the idea of ​​starting Trubisky in your fantasy finale. However, once I've learned about this crazy game, nothing comes out of the question. Since being reinstated as the team's starter in Week 12, Trubisky has accumulated the 10th highest Fantasy points among the quarterbacks, which should give Fantasy Managers a bit of confidence in the Bears QB. It's Christmas time, let Miracle Mitch lead you to a championship.
11. Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns (at New York Jets)
In the past three weeks, no quarterback has had more overtaking places or touchdowns than Mayfield. His success has made him QB4 in fantasy football since week 13 and someone to trust in championship lineups. The earlier first overall win draws the glowing Jets, and while New York is popular, the third most Fantasy Points this season can be used against quarterbacks. This is a great place for Mayfield and the rest of Cleveland's temporary attacks.
12. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks (v Los Angeles Rams)
Only fantasy managers lacking options should start Wilson's fantasy dreams this week. The quarterback we saw tearing the NFL apart for the first nine weeks of the season is no longer here as Seattle has relied on the running game for the past few weeks. While the Seahawks were 14th the least likely to run the ball of any team in the league this year, in fact they were the 14th most runner of any team in the past three weeks. That philosophical shift has turned Wilson QB14 into fantasy football since week 10. In week 16, Wilson will face the Rams, who allow QBs the least fantasy points this season.
13. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (with the New Orleans Saints)
14. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints (v Minnesota Vikings)
15. Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (at Green Bay Packers)
Tannehill, like Wilson, is another quarterback I'm shying away from this week. The Packers aren't a great opponent for quarterbacks as they put the fifth smallest fantasy points on position. This is a game where I can see the Titans really rely on Derrick Henry and the Swift Attack as the Packers have left the fifth most fantasy points this year. That potential benefit to Tennessee's offense could mean Tannehill's pushing the game in progress.
16. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (v Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
17.Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins (at Las Vegas Raiders)
18. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons (with the Kansas City Chiefs)
19. Drew Lock, Denver Broncos (at Los Angeles Chargers)
20.Marcus Mariota, Las Vegas Raiders (v Miami Dolphins)
21. Sam Darnold, New York Jets (v Cleveland Browns)
22. Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams (at Seattle Seahawks)
23.Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers (v Indianapolis Colts)
24. Teddy Bridgewater, Carolina Panthers (on Washington Football Team)
25. Philip Rivers, Indianapolis Colts (at Pittsburgh Steelers)
26. Andy Dalton, Dallas Cowboys (v Philadelphia Eagles)
27. Cam Newton, New England Patriots (v Buffalo Bills)
28. Alex Smith, Washington Football Team (v Carolina Panthers)
29. Gardner Minshew, Jacksonville Jaguars (v Chicago Bears)
30. Ryan Finley, Cincinnati Bengals (near Houston Texans)
31. C. J. Beathard, San Francisco 49ers (at Arizona Cardinals)
32. Colt McCoy, New York Giants (in Baltimore Ravens)

RB
1. Alvin Kamara, New Orleans Saints (v Minnesota Vikings)
2. Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans (at Green Bay Packers)
3.Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers (v Tennessee Titans)
4. Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings (to the New Orleans Saints)
5. Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers (v Denver Broncos)
6. Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns (on New York Jets)
7. Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles (at Dallas Cowboys)
8. David Montgomery, Chicago Bears (at Jacksonville Jaguars)
9. Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders (v Miami Dolphins)
10. Leonard Fournette, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (with Detroit Lions)
Will Fournette go down as the MVP of the Fantasy Football Playoffs? He could just do it. After Fournette made two touchdowns in week 15, Fournette will be given another repatriation obligation against an exploitable Lions defense in week 16. No defense in the NFL has allowed more fantasy points for opposing jams than Detroit, which means Fournette has a dream matchup. He should be viewed as a low-end RB1, high-end RB2 in the fantasy football finals.
11. J.K. Dobbins, Baltimore Ravens (v New York Giants)
12. David Johnson, Houston Texans (v Cincinnati Bengals)
13. D'Andre Swift, Detroit Lions (v Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
14. Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts (at Pittsburgh Steelers)
15. Le'Veon Bell, Kansas City Chiefs (v Atlanta Falcons)
Clyde Edwards-Helaire's likely injury at the end of the season is likely to put Bell in the team's starting role. Bell saw an increased workload last week, handling 15 transfers for 62 yards and a score, while hitting his only goal for 14 yards after Edwards-Helaire's exit. Bell has proven throughout his career that in the right situation he can be one of the best defenders in the NFL, as evidenced by his consecutive top 5 fantasy running back performances in 2016 and 2017 playing with the Steelers. The Chief's offense is obviously a good situation for traffic jams, so Bell should find himself in the RB2 discussion against a tough Falcons run defense this week.
16.Melvin Gordon, Denver Broncos (at Los Angeles Chargers)
Gordon's recent appearances have made him an increasingly trustworthy player for fantasy football purposes. As of Week 10, the Veterans Jam has received 11 broadcasts in every game and has topped 10 Fantasy Points in four of the six competitions. In week 16, Gordon competes against division rival Chargers, who has had to award the eighth most fantasy points to opposing runners since week 3.
17. Chris Carson, Seattle Seahawks (v Los Angeles Rams)
18.Kenyan Drake, Arizona Cardinals (v San Francisco 49ers)
19. Mike Davis, Carolina Panthers (with the Washington Football Team)
20.Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys (v Philadelphia Eagles)
Elliott (Kalb) said he was on track to face the Eagles this Sunday, a development that would obviously detract from Pollard's value. Pollard played very well when he stood in for Elliott in Week 15. He raced for 69 yards and two touchdowns to 12 carry while adding six receptions on nine targets for 63 yards. His week 15 efforts were better than any Elliott performance in 2020 in terms of fantasy production, and it's fair to ask if Pollard is actually better than Elliott.
21. Darrell Henderson, Los Angeles Rams (at Seattle Seahawks)
Cam Akers is dealing with an ankle sprain, which, as we saw with Michael Thomas this year, can be a permanent injury. Head coach Sean McVay has previously announced that Akers will miss at least week 16, a development that is likely to result in further touches for Henderson. The Rams relied on Henderson earlier this season, and between Week 2 and Week 5, Henderson had three performances of 18 Fantasy Points or more in the Half Point PPR, showing that he can be a useful player if that Opportunity is given. His matchup in week 16, the Seahawks, has allowed the 10th most fantasy points to run back this year.
22. Kareem Hunt, Cleveland Browns (at New York Jets)
23. Jeff Wilson Jr., San Francisco 49ers (with the Arizona Cardinals)
24. James Conner, Pittsburgh Steelers (v Indianapolis Colts)
25. Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati Bengals (near Houston Texans)
26. Devin Singletary, Buffalo Bills (with New England Patriots)
27. Wayne Gallman, New York Giants (in Baltimore Ravens)
28. J. D. McKissic, Washington Football Team (v Carolina Panthers)
29.Zack Moss, Buffalo Bills (with New England Patriots)
30. Chase Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals (v San Francisco 49ers)
WR
1. Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers (v Tennessee Titans)
2. Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs (v Atlanta Falcons)
3. Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears (near Jacksonville Jaguars)
4. Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills (with New England Patriots)
5. DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals (v San Francisco 49ers)
6. Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons (with the Kansas City Chiefs)
7. Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers (v Denver Broncos)
8. Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams (at Seattle Seahawks)
9. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (at Detroit Lions)
Evans had an inferior Falcons Secondary last week, getting six receptions for 110 reception yards. In week 16, he gets another date against a lackluster secondary school when the Buccaneers travel to Detroit. The Lions give the sixth most Fantasy Points to broad recipients this season. In a third highest implicit score game of the week, the Tampa Bay offensive should have a very productive day, starting with Evans.
10. Adam Thielen, Minnesota Viking (among the New Orleans Saints)
11. Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings (with the New Orleans Saints)
12. A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans (at Green Bay Packers)
13. D.K. Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks (v Los Angeles Rams)
Metcalf will be severely downgraded this week as he is likely to be shadowed by Ram cornerback Jalen Ramsey. According to PlayerProfiler, Ramsey has only allowed a range of more than 50 meters since week 2. In Metcalf's first match against Los Angeles, he hit only two of his four goals for 28 yards, his second worst appearance that year. If you have Metcalf on your fantasy team he won't get out of your lineup, but fantasy managers will likely be disappointed when they expect a record day.
14. Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco 49ers (with the Arizona Cardinals)
15. Terry McLaurin, Washington Football Team (v Carolina Panthers)
16. Jarvis Landry, Cleveland Browns (at New York Jets)
17. Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers (v Indianapolis Colts)
18. Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans (at Green Bay Packers)
19. Cole Beasley, Buffalo Bills (with the New England Patriots)
This may come as a shock to some, but Beasley has scored 17th fantasy points on wide receivers this season. The addition of Stefon Diggs has given the slot receiver a lot more wiggle room, and it has also benefited from the improved play from quarterback Josh Allen under the middle. While all of these mitigating factors certainly helped, the bottom line is that Beasley is playing the best football of his career at age 31. According to Pro Football Focus, Beasley is the seventh highest recipient in the league. He will be a WR2 against a Patriot who will miss Stephon Gilmore on Monday night.
20. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (at Detroit Lions)
21. Antonio Brown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (with Detroit Lions)
Brown is clearly the third recipient with the Buccaneers, as evidenced by his under 50 percent Snap stake in the past two weeks. Brown remains one of the best playmakers in the NFL, however, and although he only took 32 snaps in week 15, he still saw seven goals that he turned into five receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown. His low snap portion carries some risk, but he can certainly take advantage of Brown's week 16 corner game as it is likely to be guarded by Amani Oruwariye. According to PlayerProfiler, the Lions Corner has had big problems lately, allowing over 90 receiving yards in three of its last four games. If you can do it, Brown should definitely crack your starting grid.
22. Marvin Jones Jr., Detroit Lions (v Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
23. Brandin Cooks, Houston Texans (v Cincinnati Bengals)
24. D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers (with the Washington Football Team)
25. Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks (v Los Angeles Rams)
26. Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys (v Philadelphia Eagles)
27. Emmanuel Sanders, New Orleans Saints (v Minnesota Vikings)
With Michael Thomas on the line-up for Week 15, Sanders became the Saints' lead recipient. The veteran completed four of his five goals for 76 yards, which was highlighted by a reception of 51 yards. More of that should be expected from Sanders in week 16, although the matchup will be much cheaper. This season, Minnesota allows the fifth most fantasy points against broad receivers. Sanders will provide a nice flex option in the Fantasy Finals.
28. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts (at Pittsburgh Steelers)
29. Rashard Higgins, Cleveland Browns (with New York Jets)
30. Russell Gage, Atlanta Falcons (with the Kansas City Chiefs)
TE
1. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs (v Atlanta Falcons)
2. Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders (v Miami Dolphins)

8. Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers (v Denver Broncos)
