Week 16 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Week 16 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football

Week 16 Sleepers 2015 by Utter-Fantasy Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles

Fantasy football owners have no more bye weeks to contend with for the rest of the season, but unfortunately many of them have suspensions or injuries to key players that hurt them in Week 15. Hopefully the Week 16 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football options will help owners recover from roster hits if you had from players such as suspended NYG WR Odell Beckham Jr, BUFF RB LeSean McCoy,  and possibly NO QB Drew Brees to name a few. –  Good Luck this week


Quarterback Sleepers Week 16

MINN Teddy Bridgewater ( at SF )-

QB Bridgewater isn’t here just because of his impressive Week 15 ( 248 total yards and 5 TDs)…you have to love his match up Week 16 vs the Giants. The New York Giants are the worst passing defense in the NFL!

SF Blaine Gabbert ( at DET )-

QB Blaine Gabbert has put up surprisingly good numbers in the 5 games that he’s started, especially Week 15 vs a very tough Cincy defense- 305 total yards and 1 TD. He will want to impress for next year, vs a subpar Detroit defense

MIA Ryan Tannehill ( vs IND )-

The Dolphins play their last 2 games at home, and in Week 17, New England comes to town. If QB Tannehill wants to impress the home crowd before the season is over, this is the week to do it. Indianapolis is 4th worst vs the pass


Running Back Sleepers Week 16

JACK Denard Robinson (vs ATL )-

RB Denard Robinson (foot) says he intends to play Week 16 against a very bad saints defense. If he does, he could have a big day

SEA Christian Michael (vs CLEV )-

Any running back facing Cleveland’s 31st worst rushing defense should be started and considered a favorite to put nice sleeper stats for Week 16

NYJ Bilal Powell ( at DAL)-

RB Bilal Powell- a Recommended Week 15 Sleepers Week 14-LINK– got a touchdown for the 3rd straight week

SD Donald Brown (at OAK)-

I like both of the backs this week at Oakland, but it’s RB Donld brown that is the “sleeper”. RB Melvin Gordon’s season ending injury gives the RB D Brown the start as the lead running back


Wide Receiver Sleepers Week 16

BALT Kamar Aiken (vs PITT)-

A favorite Waiver Wire mention of mine during the season -LINK– and the clear cut favorite target in Baltimore now, and for the rest of the season

NYG Rueban Randle (at MINN)-

WR Odell Beckham Jr’s 1 game suspension automatically lifts the fantasy value of all NY Giant’s offensive options- WR Dwayne Harris is also a considertation for a nice “sleeper” wide receiver week 16

MINN Stefon Diggs (vs NYG)-

Stefon Diggs caught 3 receptions for 55 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Week 15. He has a dream match up Week 16 vs the worst pass defense in the NFL

DAL Terrance Williams/ Cole Beasley (vs NYG)-

Dez Bryant (foot, ankle) has been ruled out for Week 16, so WRs terrance Williams and Cole Beasley naturally get a fantasy boost and Sleeper possibilities

SEA Jermaine Kearse (vs STL)-

SEA WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday, and could be a game-time decision against the Rams. If Baldwin sits, Kearse will start opposite WR Tyler Lockett- Kearse caught 7/8 targets for 110 yards Week 15-  UPDATE: SEA Doug Baldwin (hamstring) was a full participant at Friday’s practice and is now ‘probable’ to play Week 16

TENN Dorial Green-Beckham (vs HOU)-

Coming on strong of late, DGB had 6-of-9 targets for 113 yards in Week 15, and his 100-yard day was his second in three weeks. He is probably the wide receiver that new QB Zach Mettenberger has practiced with the most


Tight End Sleepers Week 16


TENN Delanie Walker ( vs HOU )

The Titans won’t be able to run the ball vs the Houston run defense, so if they want to stay competitive in Week 16, expect QB Mettenberger to throw a ton

NYG Will Tye (vs CAR)-

A “Recommended Sleeper” Week 14- LINK– and a “Recommended Sleeper Week 15- LINK– TE Tye has 2 TDs in the past 2 games- WR Odell Beckham Jr’s 1 game suspension automatically lifts the fantasy value of all NY Giant’s offensive options- TE Tye has 2 TD receptions in his past 2 games with OBJ playing

DET Eric Ebron (vs SF)-

No TDs in the past 2 games, but he is getting 5 targets a game from QB Matt Stafford, and has become the solid 3rd option behind WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, other than running backs for Detroit


Defense Sleeper Week 16

JACK ( at N.O.) –

QB Drew Brees ( foot) is really hurting and may not play this game. Whoever starts will be under great pressure from the Jag’s defense

MINN ( vs NYG)-

The Giants will be without suspended WR Odell Beckham Jr, so the Vikings need only to stack the box against the New York running backs and make Eli beat you with WRs Rueban Randle and Dwayne Harris

Good Luck in your quest for a championship
