Luke’s Week 16 Fantasy Football Favorites
It's championship week in the fantasy football universe. Hopefully you're playing for the big one this week. Here are my final tips of the season to help crown you champ.
First, a huge thank you for watching these videos and hanging with me all season long. I really appreciate it. Hopefully I was able to help your team more than I hurt it.
Luke's Favorites to Start
Case Keenum, Vikings QB - Keenum has been a top fantasy player this year, and he's also put up 17+ points in his last 7 straight games. Look for that to continue against the Packers this week.
Jared Goff, Rams QB - Goff has been solid this season, and should be again facing the Titans this week. They're going to look to stop Todd Gurley, so expect the passing game to open up for Goff.
Deion Lewis, Patriots RB - Rex Burkhead is out and the Bills give up the most PPR points to RB's this year.
Giovanni Bernard/Joe Mixon, Bengals RB - Detroit has given up 16 TD's to RB's this year and on top of that allow 26 PPR points per game to the position. Either back should do well in the flex this week.
Ju Ju Smith-Schuster, Steelers WR - Ju Ju has been one of Big Ben's favorite targets this season and with Antonio Brown out with an injury, should see big numbers against the TExans who give up huge points through the air.
Luke's Favorites To Sit
Kirk Cousins, Washington QB - Washington has struggled lately, mostly due to injuries. The Broncos D is also tough, so I'd stay away from Cousins this week unless absolutely necessary.
Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers QB - Jimmy G has been pretty solid the last few weeks but he's playing the best Defense in years in the Jaguars. Don't count on Garappolo to do a ton this week.
Marshawn Lynch, Raiders RB - Lynch is facing an Eagles D that hasn't allowed a rushing TD at home all year.
Randall Cobb, Packers WR - Cobb has struggled throughout his career against the Vikings, scoring only 9 TD's in a ton of matchups. Go with Devonte Adams or Jordy Nelson.
Good luck in the Championship!
