Start or Sit: Week 16 Edition

Every week owners have a tough time picking which player to ride on or which player to sit on the bench. With this article, we aim to help fantasy owners determine which players to start or sit.

PLAYERS TO START

QB: Trevor Lawrence JAX (Projected: 18.08 FP)

No other QB has been as dominant right now as is Trevor Lawrence. Trevor Lawrence has led Jacksonville to two straight big comeback victories against playoff teams. In terms of FP, he has averaged 30+ FP in those games as well. He comes in and faces a tough New York Jets defense. However, he has been playing his butt off and he will continue to prove he is the future of the NFL with another great performance.

WR: Diontae Johnson PIT (Projected: 10.23 FP)

Diontae Johnson is the best WR right now who has zero TDs this season. He has had a great season so far and constantly produces double digit games. Last week, he caught 10 passes for 98 yards and rushed for two yards. With a game against the Raiders in Week 16, he is primed for another solid performance and hopefully his first TD.

PLAYERS TO SIT

RB: Joe Mixon CIN (Projected 14.35 FP)

Joe Mixon struggled in Week 15 against Tampa Bay when he was just held to 21 rushing yards. He did do well in the pass game to bring him to 10.40 FP. For Week 16, he faces a New England defense that does well against the run. It might be better to find another option instead of Joe Mixon for the Week 16 games.

TE: Mark Andrews BAL (Projected: 14.27 FP)

Mark Andrews disappointed again when he faced the Cleveland Browns in Week 15. He only caught three of seven passes for just 31 yards. He hasn’t scored in double-digits since Week 12 where he scored 10 FP exactly. It’s getting difficult to trust Andrews especially since Baltimore has focused on the run more ever since Lamar Jackson got hurt.

DEF/ST: Buffalo Bills BUF (Projected: 9.25 FP)

Buffalo will come into Week 16 against the Chicago Bears on the road. They face Justin Fields who has been dynamic and unstoppable when he’s running. The Eagles struggled against him and are one of the elite defenses in football. Last week, the Bills defense struggled against Miami by scoring just two fantasy points. The projection is really high for the Bills and I think they may have a difficult time approaching that score.
