Fanduel Week 16: A Look Back

A look back at the week that was: Fanduel NFL Week 16
See our picks here:  Fanduel Week 16

QB Aaron Rodgers  $9,200  vs. Tenn  32.78
342 yds, 3 pass TD, 1 rush TD   Huge game for Rodgers. Both he and our other mention in his write-up Matt Ryan were the top guys for the week and either would have been a terrific choice. Those who went with Rodgers here were certainly in contention to come in the money for their leagues this week.
QB Jay Cutler  $6,600  vs. ARI   10.64
146yds 1TD  Big swing and a miss here. The Bears went with the ground attack. We were riding the Cutler-Marshall duo this week which did connect on the Bears only passing touchdown but 6 for 68 left much to be desired.

RB Alfred Morris  $7,400  vs.  PHI   17.3
108 total yds, 1TD  Another respectable week for Morris. He has been very consistent over the course of the season and one of those guys you can pencil in for 100 and a score every weekend.
RB Knowshon Moreno  $6,600  vs. CLE   15.2
127 total yds, 5 receptions  Failed to find the end-zone for the first time in a while but continues to be one of the best values in Fanduel each week. Trend should continue with another good match-up against KC next week.

WR Brandon Marshall  $8,200  vs. ARI   15.8
6/68/1  Already touched on his day in the Cutler review but obviously disappointing. Managed to break the double digit mark thanks to the TD but for the money there were far better options out there.
WR Stevie Johnson  $6,400  vs.  MIA  4.4
4/44  Rough day for Johnson and the Bills. Several uncharacteristic drops and a quarterback that had a hard time getting a second to the think in the pocket spells disaster for those who went this way.

TE Heath Miller  $6,100  vs.  CIN  6
3/45  A season ending ACL tear in the 4th quarter was a big blow to the Steelers as they attempted to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. He certainly would have been a big target for them down the stretch. Disappointing game for Miller owners.
TE Benjamin Watson  $4,900  vs.  DEN   6.2
3/47  Going against the league's worst TE defense it was a good match-up on paper. He was still able to put up more points than the higher priced pick in Miller but still nothing to write home about.

K Phil Dawson  $5,000  vs.  DEN   8
Another ho-hum pick here. Cleveland struggled to get things going offensively and as a result Dawson didn't get many good looks.

DEF  New England  $5,600  vs.  JAX    8
The surprise of the week had to be Jacksonville this week. They went toe to toe and probably should have beat a Patriots team that was sloppy on both sides on the balls and just managed to pull this on off. 3 INT's helped the cause but overall a big disappointment.
