Fantasy Football: Start / Sit Week 16
For most fantasy football players, this is championship week. That makes every lineup decision even more important. Everyone wants to come out on top to get their trophy, bragging rights, money, etc. But with that in mind, this will be my last start, sit of the season.
Hopefully you didn’t listen to too much of me last week. I only hit on two of my picks as Jimmy G and Tyler Boyd both had lackluster games; other then that I was atrocious. But I am on to this week just like you hopefully are. Here are my start / sits for week 16:
Start- Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins
Oh Fitzmagic. The greatest quarterback to ever live. I should really put him as a “start” on every single one of my start / sits.
Joking aside, the Dolphins can not run the ball and currently rank ninth in the league in pass attempts. I expect that to continue to be true as Miami hosts the 1-13 Cincinnati Bengals this weekend. And with former first-round pick DeVante parker finally reaching his potential, Fitz could be in for a big weekend.
the Bengals have been one of the worst teams this year downfield and per target to WRs… their overall numbers only look good because of game script and teams not having to throw.

Sit- Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen loves to turn the ball over. Not actually, but he is very prone to do so. He has nine interceptions and seven fumbles during the season. Heading to New England on a short week to take on the Patriots isn’t going to help those numbers. Remember, back in Week 4 Allen was only able to put up 8 fantasy points against this same D.
Start- Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals
Over the past few weeks Joe Mixon has been a workhorse for the Bengals. Sadly that hasn’t led to any wins for them, but in fantasy football volume is king. And like I already mentioned, the Dolphins and Bengals are playing this weekend. This a huge spot for Mixon to explode especially since Miami is giving up over 140 yards per game on the ground.
Sit- Kenyan Drake, Arizona Cardinals
After a four touchdown performance, the Kenyan Drake train is pumping down the tracks. Still, I think he is set up to a big time disappointment this week as the Cards head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.
It isn’t that I think Drake is bad or the Seahawks run D is especially good, I just think as a whole the Cardinals are going to fall flat in one of the toughest environments to play in. Seattle also has way more to play for in their quest for a bye week, so I doubt anyone on the Cards offense has a good day. Seattle is hungry.
Start- Cortland Sutton, Denver Broncos
Pro-Bowl snub, taking on a Detroit Lions secondary that just gave up three touchdowns to former first-round bust Breshad Perriman. Sutton is 10 times the player Perriman is, and that added chip on his shoulder could mean he is in for another great outing.
Sit- T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton is hurt. Do not play him. I do not care what head coach Frank Reich says, he is not to be trusted.
Reich said that Hilton would be 100% heading into Monday’s game against the Saints, but was only out there for 52% of the snaps. You haven’t been able to trust Hilton since Week 8 (not his fault he is hurt), so why start now.
