Week 16 Cheat Sheet

Each week, the cheat sheet combs through the choice Insider fantasy advice to provide owners with last-minute roster tips for the weekend. Here is this week's edition:

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks: The scoring leader for Week 15 -- he had 39 points in ESPN standard scoring, on the strength of three rushing TDs and one through the air -- Wilson is criminally under-owned right now: he's still somehow available in well over half of ESPN leagues. It's not certain that he'll be able to put up a huge performance this week (he had just three points the last time the Seahawks played their Week 16 opponents, the 49ers); however, Eric Karabell writes in "Four Downs" this week that he should be added for another reason -- to block your opponent from using him, just in case he does rip off another huge performance.


To read more fantasy advice, including which players you should start and which you should avoid in Week 16, you must be an ESPN Insider.
