Kareem Hunt, RB Kansas Metropolis Chiefs

Hunt faces a Miami Dolphins protection that ranks third-worst in factors allowed to operating backs after back-to-back weeks through which he had 24 or extra carries, 116 or extra dashing yards and at the least one landing. He’s clearly a must-start, High 5 play in championship week simply three weeks after being a debatable flex starter. Some guys step it up and win championships for homeowners, and Hunt’s well timed resurgence might make him that man this yr.

Tom Brady, QB New England Patriots

Brady has thrown for fewer yards, rushed for fewer yards and produced fewer touchdowns than Blake Bortles during the last 4 weeks. He has thrown two touchdowns, mixed, in his final three video games and scored fewer than 16 Fantasy factors in every of these video games. Brady has a rivalry recreation towards a Buffalo Payments protection that ranks third-best in factors allowed per recreation to quarterbacks (12.2 factors per recreation), whereas Bortles faces a 49ers go protection that’s third-worst in factors allowed to quarterbacks (19 factors per recreation). It might be blasphemous to even recommend homeowners declare Blake Bortles and begin him whereas benching Brady…. however all of the developments recommend you must. Severely. It pains me, as a Patriots fan, to say such vulgarity, however the odds are excellent that Bortles outscores Brady within the Fantasy championship Week 16 recreation.

Blake Bortles, QB Jacksonville Jaguars

A much-maligned pariah, Bortles has scored 22,25,18, and 25 Fantasy factors during the last 4 weeks. He has thrown for at the least 268 yards and two touchdowns in three straight video games. In two of these video games, he threw for over 300 yards and he rushed for 2 scores in Week 12. In Week 16, Bortles is as near a must-start as a participant as maligned like Bortles may be. He’ll be dealing with a 49ers protection that ranks third-worst in Fantasy factors allowed to quarterbacks — lower than a degree from being ranked the worst. Wanting again with glory, Bortles, like Hunt, may very well be 2017’s present that gained some homeowners their leagues.

Keelan Cole, WR Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars’ receiving corps has flown largely underneath the NFL radar and Cole has turn into one a part of that group, however he has a landing in three consecutive video games with 99 and 186 receiving yards respectively within the final two video games. Cole led the Jaguars in targets for Week 15 after being largely ignored in Weeks 13 and 14, making him a dicey however intriguing danger/reward choice. DeDe Westbrook obtained ink on this column final week and Marqise Lee (out for Week 16), when wholesome, has been Fantasy-relevant for a lot of the season. Now its Cole’s probability for some props. Fournette is banged up. The Jaguars might need to ease up on his workload to be ready for the playoffs, and the 49ers have a leaky go protection. Cole and Westbrook have each been focused and productive in latest video games, and so they have one among their finest matchups of the season in Week 16.

Marquise Goodwin, WR San Francisco 49ers

Goodwin has scored double-digit Fantasy factors in 4 straight video games and he has completed it with out scoring a landing. He’s had back-to-back 100-yard receiving video games and 6 receptions or extra in three straight video games. Since Jimmy Garoppolo took over underneath middle, Goodwin has led the group in targets in three straight video games (13 targets in Week eight, 12 in Week 14, and 13 in Week 15). The knocks towards lining up with Goodwin in your league championship is that he hasn’t scored a landing in any of these video games and the Jaguars are second-stingiest in factors allowed to vast receivers (24.5 per recreation). It relies on your options, however Goodwin’s flooring in PPR codecs might be 10 Fantasy factors and if he can discover the top zone, you might get a 20-point week on the flex spot from a man that was obtainable on the waiver wire over Thanksgiving.

Bengals Run Protection and Theo Riddick

Jerick McKinnon punished the Bengals within the passing recreation in Week 15, Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen ran throughout them in Week 14 and Le’Veon Bell did all of it in bunches in Week 13. Theo Riddick struggled towards the Bears in Week 15, however he scored 17 and 27 factors in Weeks 13 and 14, and he has practiced totally this week. The juicy matchup makes him a tasty championship week flex play.

Chicago Bears Protection

They’ve scored eight,12 and 10 Fantasy factors of their three earlier video games, and the NFL schedulers gave them Deshone Kizer and the futile Cleveland offense on Christmas weekend. The Bears have 9 sacks of their final three video games and have generated a turnover in 5 straight. They rank seventh on the season in Fantasy scoring in ESPN leagues, so they need to be owned. But when they’re not, they’re a premier stream this week.

Phil Dawson, Okay Arizona Cardinals

Robbie Gould kicked various undeserving Fantasy groups into their league championships with six discipline targets in Week 15. Dawson has scored 16,12, 5 and 17 Fantasy factors in his final 4 video games and faces the lowly Giants, who’re giving up factors by the bushel. He needs to be a 10-point kicker this week, kicking at residence within the pleasant circumstances of Arizona.
