Week 16 Ranksauce

posted by gregsauce

If you are fortunate enough to have reached your championship game this week, you must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. You will face your fear. You will permit it to pass over you and through you. And when it has gone past you will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only you will remain. Go forth, ye Fremen of fake football, and ride the sandworm that is your team to victory. Here are my Week 16 rankings:

  • Pls rank for flex in W16:

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

    • only need top 3

    • Smith, Battle, Owens

  • What up G. Q: Im likin’ Miles’s match-up vs Saints. Roll with T Rich in the flex or start Miles or Wilson? Thanks!

    • I like Austin’s match-up too, but I’d use Richardson.

  • 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

    Thanks for all the help this season, Greg!

    • I like Eli just slightly more than Kaepernick this week. It’s extremely close.

      WR: Thomas & Decker
      TE: Bennett
      Flex: Sproles

  • Thanks

  • Also I have Gore and Crabtree going against Seattle

  • San Diego defense or Seattle?

    • San Diego.

  • On a scale of 1 to Kansas City Chiefs, how bad is it that my championship opponent is currently slotting Foles to be his starting QB in a 10 team league?? It’s possible that he’s just playing mind games… but he’s also a raging Philly homer, and I really think he’s gonna do it. He’s got Kaep on the bench, with Wilson and a few other good QBs still sitting on the wire too.

    If I somehow lose this, I can’t even imagine the shame…

    • Foles isn’t the WORST option this week. I recommended him in the Week 16 Waiver Wire, but not to the degree of starting him over Kaepernick. Your opponent might be playing mind games, but he might be trying to play “match-ups”. While I don’t agree with his choice, you never know what could happen. Regardless of who he starts, good luck this week.

  • Hi Greg, 12 Team PPR: Cruz, Dez, DX, Garcon, James Jones. I need to start 3. Battle or Beanie as my RB2.
    10 Team PPR: Cruz, Wayne, Marshall, Dez, VJax. I need to start 4. Luck or Eli? Bennett, Vernon, or Gates?

    • 12-Team: Cruz, Bryant, Garcon, & Beanie.

      10-Team: Marshall, Bryant, Cruz, Jackson, Luck, & Gates.

  • Actually, I just now decided I’m gonna start Amendola so just choose one from the rest

    • In that case, Richardson.

  • Choose 2 (PPR, Championship): VJax, Amendola, Trent, DX, Lance Moore, Myers, Pitta

    • Richardson and Jackson.

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


    • In PPR, I’d use Amendola.

  • PPR Need 2 from Antonio Brown, DX, Blackmon or Mike Williams? I’m at a loss as what to do w/DX considering the Matchup & The whole Charger scene. What’s ur thoughts on that? thx

    • I’d play Blackmon and DX.

  • would you rather have ben watson + demarco + mcfadden or heath + bradshaw (assuming healthy) + ridley.

    basically is the downgrade at tight end worth the upgrade at rb?

    • Depends on what you’re going for. The Watson side is more of a home-run try, whereas the Miller side seems safer to me (assuming Bradshaw is healthy and starts).

    • With that said, it’s the playoffs, so I’d probably swing for the home run.

  • pick two at WR: Bryant, A Johnson, Cruz thanks!

    • They’re all very close, but I’d bench Cruz.
