I’m going to keep it short tonight as I must get to focusing on the week 16 rankings. Alfred had engagements this week that’s keeping him from writing this week, but rest assured, he will be back. I made an appearance with B-Don on the Razzball Fantasy Football podcast this week and we talked about all of the pick ups for the week and much, much more. Here is the list of players that I think are worthy of rostering and possibly starting this week. Remember, heading into your championship week, you don’t need players on your bench that will have zero starter consideration in re-draft leagues.

Breshad Perriman 

Chris Godwin and Mike Evans seem to be done for the season so that leaves Breshad Perriman as the number one receiving option in Tampa. Scotty Miller is also hurt, so the only relevant options are Perriman, OJ Howard, and Cameron Brate. This is a plus matchup for Tampa in the passing game and Jameis Winston has been on absolute fire. Of course we aren’t expecting another 3 touchdown performance from Perriman, but I would be surprised if he doesn’t get to 100 yards. 

Mike Boone (under 1% Owned)

Dalvin Cook sounds like he wants to give it a go on Monday Night, but if you’re a Dalvin Cook owner, you NEED to grab Mike Boone. Boone carried the ball 13 times for 56 yards and 2 touchdowns and Alexander Mattison was inactive on Sunday. 

Greg Ward Jr. (3% Owned)

The Eagles are extremely thin at wide receiver and need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. They’ll have to go down with guns blazin’. On Sunday, Ward had 7 catches for 61 yards and a touchdown. Keep an eye on Nelson Agholor’s status for Sunday. If he’s out, Ward is worth consideration. 

Anthony Miller (25% Owned)

It’s a great matchup for the Bears passing game and Anthony Miller has been on fire the past few weeks. He has gone for at least 13 fantasy points in each of the last three weeks, including two with at least 23 points. This will obviously be weather pending with how the Midwest can be this time of year. This game will be played in Kansas City.

Tyler Higbee (39% Owned)

As long as Gerald Everett is inactive, Tyler Higbee is a top 5 TE play. Higbee is seeing a ton of work from Jared Goff and has 3 straight games with at least 18 fantasy points.

Myles Gaskin (Under 1% Owned)

This is too risky for my blood, but it sounds like the Myles Gaskin could get a decent look from the Dolphins on Sunday since Patrick Laird isn’t quite cutting it. The Dolphins have Cincinnati on the books this week, which is a great matchup for running backs. Gaskins did carry the ball 9 times for 43 yards last Sunday and caught two passes for 29 yards. Meh. Deep leagues only.

Darwin Thompson (8% Owned)

This is another deep league only consideration. He led the Chiefs in carries on Sunday and the Chief’s backfield is a complete mess. Thompson is a flier to get into the endzone if Damien Williams sits against the Bears

Jonnu Smith (7% Owned)

Smith had over 100 total yards on Sunday including a 54-yard carry. Those still count, even for tight ends. Smith has 2 straight games with at least 11 fantasy points, and even though the Saints are a tough matchup, Smith could have a decent day.

I’ll catch you all tomorrow for the FINAL rankings edition of 2019!

      Ravens and I like Miller more than Crowder

    In the championships with $2 to spend on waivers, and three tough decisions…

    1) With Dallas Goedert at TE, should I pick up OJ Howard, Jonnu Smith, or Jacob Hollister?
    2) Perriman/Boone are both available, and are better FLEX options than Robby Anderson, right?
    3) DST: keep rolling with SF or pick up Denver?

    Or should I save $1 in case of injury (I don’t have a backup QB)? Thank you!

      hold SF, ranked a good deal higher by FP’s top DEF rankers.

    Last week, thank you for the guidance all season!

    Do you like Doyle, Gesecki, Jonnu, or Howard at TE this week?

      Howard

    this same roster, i added back hollister since at least this week he gets ARI. half PPR 2 QB dynasty 12 teamer.

    QB (2): mahomes, rodgers, tannehill haskins
    RB (2): kamara, ingram, ekeler, hyde, michel
    WR (3): boyd, edelman, k.allen, thielen, watkins, ross
    TE (1): ertz, hollister
    2 regular flexes
    IR (2): thielen
    kicker (1): gould
    team D (1): BUF
    IDP flexes (4): d.davis, b.martinez, j.hicks, z.cunningham
    IR (2): j.adams

    for longer term add back gus the bus or one of j.smith/rudolph for the backup TE job here over hollister or anybody else. if green ends up elsewhere i’d think holding ross and boyd makes sense, and if he doesn’t leave i can deal with that problem next year (would have to drop 1-3 more of these to draft our 3 round slow message board draft, but the backup TE is an easy drop then too). it’s daily FAAB max 3 moves per week and my j.gordon for hollister counted towards last week since he was on bench and done before week 15 ended. BUF/gould obtained with this week moves.

      I’d stay where you are. Nobody I’d drop for Gus

    First time poster, long time fan! Finally made the Championship… so thought I’d drop a Q:

    Lockett or Perriman for my last WR spot.

    With Lockett’s disappearing act for last 5 weeks it seems that Perriman might have a safer floor.
