Fantasy Cheat Sheet: Week 16
A week's worth of advice to help you make your last-minute moves
Top tipsKirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins The Shanaclan's experiment to feature Cousins as their starting quarterback worked out pretty well in Week 15; maybe they can get a second-round pick for him this offseason after all. From a fantasy perspective, there was a lot to like about Cousins' 21-point day, in the view of Tim Hasselbeck. Cousins had 45 attempts, which is a sign that he's going to be featured, and, although he did face a meager Falcons defense, he gets the Cowboys this week (with no Morris Claiborne). Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs Charles exploded for 51 points in standard scoring in Week 15, and, although he did so for a lot of teams that were already eliminated from the playoffs, he obviously swung a considerable number of matchups, as well. This week, the Chiefs take on the Colts, and their defense isn't as bad as Oakland's, but Eric Karabell still believes Charles is the best option at the flex positions.
