Fantasy Football Week 16 Start Em' Sit Em

New, 1 comment

Regardless of whether Brett Favre starts this weekend, the Eagles defense is probably a really good play for the first time in weeks. They host the Vikings on Sunday Night football coming off their best win of the season with a chance to clinch the NFC East. The Vikings are coming off a putrid performance in which they were blown out by the Bears at home. Young QB Joe Webb battled, but clearly is not ready to be a starting QB in the NFL at this point. If Brett Favre were able to start, it probably won't be much better as he's always turned the ball over a lot against Philadelphia.


I also really like Josh Freeman this week. The Bucs have played themselves out of the playoff picture these past couple weeks, but they face the league's 4th worst pass defense against Seattle this weekend. In a game with no pressure for Tampa, Freeman should put up nice fantasy numbers.


Speaking of bad pass defenses.... Dare I say Tim Tebow might be an interesting start this weekend? It's always a good idea to start whichever QB is facing the Texans and this week that's Tebow. So if you're in a pinch, you might actually get some solid production from him. That game should actually be nice all around from a fantasy perspective because the Denver defense is awful and the Texans skill players are going to light them up. With two defenses this bad, it could be a fantasy bonanza for any offensive player in the game.
