posted by Jeff

Week 16 is where the strong survive and the weak return home with no championship rings. Welcome to The Fake Football’s Week 16 Staff Rankings, the best the world wide web has to offer in fantasy football rankings. As always, feel free to leave those lineup questions in the comments below, and let’s all hope the fake football world is kind this weekend…as Jamaal Charles, Denario Alexander, and the Bucs have some explaining to do!

Good luck!

  • What do you think of starting Miles over T Rich in the flex? Non-PPR

  • Hey Jeff.. I saw ur advice above PPR Using Blackmon over M.Williams or Danario (Damn that Kills me to have to sit him) BUT I grabbbed Bradshaw of ww.. Any value to put him in at Flex if he starts…I having a hard Time trusting any of these with their matchups! Thanx for ur opinion.

    • Ugh thats a tough one. Unless I saw glowing reports out of NYG tomorrow morning regarding Bradshaw I would stick with the WR

  • Need a flex this: 12 team nonPPR. My options are LeShoure, J. Bell, D. Wilson, DHB and Nate Washington. Who gets the nod?

    • Leshoure unless Bradshaw sits

  • Pls rank for flex in W16:

    DuJuan Harris, DHB, Bryce Brown, Torrey Smith, Jackie Battle, Montell Owens

    • only need top 3

      • Owens, Smith, DHB

  • I just wanted to send a “Thank U” to You and the Staff for all the tedious work and research you gave us FFB Fanatics. I followed Chet here to the Fake Football, and Happy I did.I know there’s a TON of FF Sites around so my philosophy is to follow a small I can really trust. My team was decimated w/injuries but with your columns (Especially “Dreaming of Streaming) managed a crippled team to our Super Bowl !! Now I need a miracle to survive going up against Brees and AP ..But “Any Given Sunday” Right LOL!

    • Any Give Sunday is right!

      Thank you for the kind words, we appreciate you stopping by this season. Good luck!

  • Lynch, reg bush, charles, d William’s or david wilson pick 3 plz julio, decker ty hilton or britt pick 2 standard thx for help this year happy holidays!

    • Charles, Lynch, Bush
      Julio, Decker

      Happy Holidays to you as well and good luck!

  • Jeff, thanks for all the solid advise this season. One last round of help, if you would.

    Championship game, PPR league:

    RB: starting AP and Rice, good there.
    QB: Eli or Kaepernick?
    2WR, 1TE, 1FLEX from following: D Thomas, Nicks, Decker, Maclin, James Jones, Sproles, J Bell, M Bennett, B Watson

    • No problem, thanks for visiting this season.

      QB: I would play Eli. Seattle’s D is awesome at home.
      WR: D. Thomas/Decker
      TE: Bennett
      FLEX: Nicks

      Good luck!

  • In league where we start 4 wr got cruz n vjax locked in need 2 outta danario crabtree britt hartline nd s. moss usually roll wit dx nd crabtree but matchups scare me

    • Go with Crabtree for sure and then DX and Britt is a toss up. Go with Britt.

  • What up Jeff, thanks for your help all season, you and the rest of the Fake Footballers helped get me to the Championship. Crazy Q 1; drop Shayne Graham for Matt Prater? And start Shorts over Miles and Amendola? Thanks

    • No problem, thanks for reading and good luck in your matchup.

      Yes, I would start Shorts and yes I would probably drop Graham for Prater but that is a wild card as always with kickers.

      • Thanks! I like Miles’s match-up. What do you think of playing him over T Rich in the flex spot?

  • PPR, Rec TD = 9pt, Rush TD = 7pt, Five rush attempts = 1pt, Five pass completions = 1pt, Pass TD = 5

    QB: Luck, or Kaep
    RB: McFadden, or McCoy
    TE: Scheffler, or Rudolph

    • Luck

  • Aw man, same scenario as last week with the rankings. I have both Cam and Rodgers. Just like last week two of you have Cam ranked higher. Last week I went with Cam. Fortunately I was still able to win despite Rodgers scoring more, but I don’t know what to do this week in the championship. I’m thinking don’t make the same mistake. Should I go with Rodgers or Cam?

    • Pass td’s= 6

      • They are both great options. I like Rodgers personally, but go with your gut here. Or flip a coin. I think you’ll be fine with either guy honestly.

  • pick two: Maclin, Stevie J or Britt?
    SD or NYJ D? (don’t laugh I’m in the bowl)

    • Stevie and Maclin, and I would go SD. Good luck!

  • Pitta or Gresham; amendola, mike Williams, Antonio brown, Blackmon, givens, or denarius Moore; c Johnson, McFadden, Moreno, Ballard, shonn greene (pick two rbs). 12 team non-ppr

    • Pitta

  • Sat on Malcolm Floyd too long this season…Stokley or Nate Washington better sleeper?

    • Washington

  • My RBs are Martin, Murray, Richardson, and Moreno, and one guy needs to sit for my championship. Am I crazy to sit T-Rich? If it wasn’t for his short TD pluges, he’d be putting up some dud games the past few weeks. Lots of talk out of Cleveland that he’s losing carries and workload could be lightened for rest of season.

    Also, Cruz is my WR1. Starting Cobb at WR2 if Nelson sits for GB. Wayne at WR2 if Nelson is active. Agree?

    • WR: I would play Cobb either way

      RB: I think you are right. TRich would be the one to sit.

  • Oh Great.. I see you have Danario, Antonio, Blackmon and M.Williams ranked together..HA! I need to pick 2 of them for my PPR WR and Flex …I Know U-G-L-Y LOL

    • I like Antonio Brown. He’s been getting tons of targets since Ben has been back. I’ll defer to the other 2 guys and say go Blackmon as your 2nd if you want to skip the risk of DX repeating his goose egg.

  • PPR championship game flex help. Who do you like between Decker, Amendola and McCoy (now that Reid has said he will be starting)?


    • Id go with Decker. Good luck!
