Week 16 Daily Fantasy Picks

We’re nearing the end of the season and it’s that time of the year where a bunch of players are out because they’re “injured”. Don’t play those guys. Play these guys instead.

Quarterbacks

Big Cost, Big Points – Ben Roethlisberger (PIT)

Roethlisberger has been great this season, when he actually plays. This week he’s playing a must win game against their most hated rival, who happens to be really bad on defense. All the makings for a great game for Big Ben.

Value Play – Teddy Bridgewater (MIN)

Bridgewater has been great as of late and the Giants pass defense has struggled all year.TEDDY_BRIDGEWATER_VIKINGS

Others – Blake Bortles (JAC), Cam Newton (CAR), Matthew Stafford (DET)

There’s a lot of good QB plays this week.

Running Backs

Big Cost, Big Points – Doug Martin (TB)DOUG_MARTIN_BUCCANEERS

Martin has had a fantastic season and he should have another great game against the Bears soft run defense.

Value Play – Karlos Williams (BUF)

Lesean McCoy is out so Williams should see an increase in carries.

Others – David Johnson (ARI), Charcandrick West (KC)

David Johnson has had some good game since taking over as starter. West has a nice matchup this week and isn’t too costly.

Wide Receivers

Big Cost, Big Points – Antonio Brown (PIT)ROETHLISBERGER_ANTONIO_BROWN

If you’re going with Big Ben, pick Brown as well. He’s the best receiver in the NFL.

Value Play – Stefon Diggs (MIN)

Diggs has had a solid rookie year and is Bridgewater’s top target in Minnesota.

Others – Allen Robinson (JAC), Jeremy Maclin (KC)

Great matchups for these number one receivers.

Tight Ends

Big Cost, Big Points – Greg Olsen (CAR)GREG_OLSEN_PANTHERS

With the way Cam Newton’s been playing, Olsen is always a good pick to score a bunch of points at tight end.

Value Play – Eric Ebron (DET)

Go with Ebron again. He’s really cheap and is going against another bad defense.

Others – Travis Kelce (KC), Julius Thomas (TE)

If you pick Robinson at receiver, go with Kelce. If you’re going with Maclin, pick Thomas at tight end.

Defenses

Big Cost, Big Points – Seahawks

Seattle has been on fire and faces Case Keenum at home.

Value Play – Dolphins

The Dolphins face an injured, 40 year old, Matt Hasselbeck.

Others – Lions, Chiefs

Two different defenses but both face bad offenses.
