Fantasy Football Week 16: Start’em / Sit’em

4 of 4

Josh Gordon, @CAR (60%, 13) – It’s impossible for me to start any Browns skill players after watching Manziel struggle last week. Manziel was awful and until he shows considerable improvement, I’m sitting Gordon.

DeSean Jackson, PHI (53%, 15) – There is a theme to all my WR sits and if you haven’t noticed it yet, it’s terrible QBs. Even if RG3 manages to stay healthy all game, I don’t trust him enough to expect start-worthy fantasy stats from any Skins WR.

Sammy Watkins, @OAK (50%, 13) – The talented rookie has been completely shut down in 4 of his last 5 games. Too risky with a shaky QB against an underrated defense.

Michael Crabtree, SD (35%, 11) – Might be the most overrated WR in the league. Crabtree has yet to surpass 90 receiving yards in a game all season.

Eric Decker, NE (27%, 12) – The Pats have one of the best pass defenses in the league and have given up the 4th fewest fantasy points to WRs. It should be a long day for Geno Smith and the Jets skill players.

Larry Donnell, @STL (41%, 9) – Has disappeared off the fantasy radar after his 3 TD game against the Redskins mid-season. Donnell hasn’t scored in the last 4 games.

Jordan Reed, PHI (32%, 10) – I’m staying away from RG3 and anyone associated with him this week.

Jordan Cameron, @CAR (22%, 8) – See above but replace RG3 with Johnny Manziel.
