Week 16 is here and a lot of season-long leagues will be decided this week. If you have already been eliminated, why not give Daily Fantasy Football a shot? It’s like playing a Week 16 championship every week of the year. We here at SoCalledFantasyExperts.com have got you covered with all our great Daily Fantasy Football content.
Last week I had my personal best week in Daily Fantasy Football as I finished in 4th place in a 3200 player GPP tournament and picked up $700 for my $9 entry fee. It was such a great feeling watching David Johnson, Drew Brees and Sammy Watkins bring me home the $$$$$. Winning the money was great but the thrill of the game was awesome as well. If you love Fantasy Football give Daily Fantasy Sports a chance soon even if it’s a free league.
Lets get to this week’s picks.
All prices are based on Fanduel pricing.
Week 16 Daily Fantasy Football
3 Value Wide Receivers
Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills vs Dallas Cowboys ($7,700)
Sammy Watkins has been one of the best wide receivers in the game since Week 9. This week Watkins and the Bills get to face off against the Dallas Cowboys who appear to have given up on this season. Watkins has a great match-up on the field as well as he should be mostly lining up against Cowboys DB Morris Claiborne.
Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos vs Cincinnati Bengals ($7,500)
Sanders had a nice game last week and should be able to put up another big game no matter if Peyton Manning plays or not. Sanders is just too fast and the Bengals secondary will be focusing on taking Demaryius Thomas out, leaving Sanders with a lot of single coverage for him to take advantage of.
Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins vs Indianapolis Colts ($7,000)
Most Daily Fantasy Football players avoid guys after bad weeks and Landry had a terrible week last Sunday vs the Chargers. That’s called the recency bias: when players either pick players that did really well or really bad the previous week. This week Landry should get back on track and has a great match-up playing out of the slot vs the Colts defense, who are coming off an embarrassing home loss to the Texans who might have eliminated the Colts with the loss.
3 Wide Receivers to Avoid
Eric Decker, NY Jets vs New England Patriots ($7,600)
Decker has been great most of the year but this week could see Decker struggle as he should be seeing a lot of time against the Patriots top DB Malcolm Butler. Butler has the speed to stick with Decker and Patriots coach Bill Belichick could make the Jets try to run the ball to shorten the game which could give the Patriots a better chance to get out of NY with the win.
Brandon LaFell, New England Patriots @ NY Jets ($6,300)
LaFell has been terrible for most of the year. He missed time due to an injury but it seems like he never got going. LaFell has had extra opportunities with Edelman getting hurt as well as Amendola missing time recently too. This week LaFell faces off against the Jets defense and should see a lot of time on Revis Island. That is not a good place for LaFell right now and I can’t see him putting up numbers this Sunday.
Dontrelle Inman, San Diego Chargers @ Oakland Raiders ($5,400)
Inman had a decent game last week but Stevie Johnson is due back this week which should mean even less targets for Inman, making him useless. The whole Chargers offense is a mess right now. No wide receivers and a banged up offensive line equals Philip Rivers not playing well. Rivers’ poor play at QB trickles down to poor play from the WR position. Pass on Inman this week and dig deeper for another player.
Good luck this week and enjoy Week 16!
