Fanduel NFL Week 16 Players to Start

Fanduel NFL Week 16 Players to Start
A look at the best match-ups and bargains at each position for Week 16 of the NFL Fanduel season. Good luck everyone and happy holidays!

QB Aaron Rodgers  $9,200  vs. Tenn
Rodgers is as steady as they come and coming off a great week last week goes up against a Tennessee Titans team that has been a great match-up for fantasy QB's not named Mark Sanchez. If you are going with a big money QB Rodgers is guy. Those of you playing leagues that start on Thursday may want to take a look at Matt Ryan against a beat up Lion's secondary as well.
QB Jay Cutler  $6,600  vs. ARI
Cutler is one of those guys who is a high risk, high reward type of play. He has games where he will look like a top tier QB throwing for 260/2/0 then turn around with a 210/0/3 stinker. At only $6,600 he is about as cheap a starter as you can find. Brandon Marshall is having a great season at the receiving end and publiclly challenged the offense follow last week's loss to the Packers. How will they respond? If they respond well Cutler is a steal here at $6,600.

RB Alfred Morris  $7,400  vs.  PHI
Morris had 27 carries for 87 yards and 2 TD's Sunday against the Browns. Expect the Redskins to rely heavily on Morris again this week as they ease RGIII back into the swing of things and make a push for the playoffs. Morris has been hot lately and they have been feeding him the ball a ton. A good play this week and at just $7,400 and allows you to spend elsewhere without paying out the 9000 for a Peterson or Foster.
RB Knowshon Moreno  $6,600  vs. CLE
Moreno continues to put up big numbers and again is listed at a great bargain at just $6,600. Moreno had 22 carries for 118 rushing yards and a touchdown against a tough Baltimore defense last week. This week he faces a Cleveland team that Alfred Morris put up big numbers on a week ago. Great play again this week.

WR Brandon Marshall  $8,200  vs. ARI
We like the Cutler-Marshall combo this week. Marshall is motivated as evident by his post game press conference following last week's loss to the Packers. Marshall is having one of the best seasons of any WR in the league but is being overshadowed by the likes of Calvin Johnson. If you are going with our bargain at QB in Cutler, Marshall is a must have at the other end.
WR Stevie Johnson  $6,400  vs.  MIA
For whatever reason Johnson likes playing the Dolphins. Buffalo Bills are tough starts most weeks but they did knock off Miami earlier in the season and Johnson remains QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target. The two connected on a great touchdown last week against a far better pass defense in Seattle. Expect Johnson to get plenty of looks this week.

TE Heath Miller  $6,100  vs.  CIN
Miller is coming off a big game and faces a Cincinnati team that he put up 6/53/1 against earlier in the season. With big names Gronk/Hernandez/Graham all banged up, Miller is the best of that second tier and this week makes for a good play.
TE Benjamin Watson  $4,900  vs.  DEN
If the Broncos have a weakness on defense it is defending against TE's who have torched them all season long. Case & point:  last week Dennis Pita (our bargain pick) lit them up for 120yds and 2 TD's. Watson has been inconsistent this season but is starting to appear more and more on Brandon Weeden's radar in the red zone. If there was a week for him to stand out, this would be it.

K Phil Dawson  $5,000  vs.  DEN
Dawson is the best of the $5,000 group again this week. Denver is a decent defense that should make it difficult for Trent Richardson and Co. to find the end-zone. Expect Dawson to have plenty of opportunities for FG's this week.

DEF  New England  $5,600  vs.  JAX
We usually give you a $5,000 play here but we have seen over the course of the season that defense plays a much more important role in dominating your Fanduel league each week than we often give it credit for. Couple that with a bunch of poor match-ups at the bottom of the board this week and it's time to look for a stud D elsewhere. The Patriots defense was embarrassed by the 49ers last weekend, showing a vulnerability that they had not shown in weeks. Expect them to bounce back with a statement game this weekend against a Jacksonville team that really is not that good.
