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

5 of 8

Jim O’Connner



Eli Manning, @MIN (49%, 19) – The most inconsistent starter in the NFL is facing a Vikings defense that is playing really well right now and should be able to pressure Eli constantly. We’ve all seen what happens when Eli is under pressure. I’m keeping him out of my lineup this week.

Matt Ryan, CAR (42%, 18) – Has only had 20 fantasy points in one of his last six fantasy starts and in that stretch has had four games under 15 fantasy points and one game under 5! Ryan is a mess right now and I wouldn’t start him against anyone, much less a fierce Panthers D.

Ryan Tannehill, IND (24% 18) – Hasn’t put up 18 points in any of the last three games and has just been too inconsistent to risk starting during what is most likely your fantasy championship week. The Phins offense is a mess right now and even a good match-up vs the Colts isn’t tempting enough of a reason to start Tannehill.
