Start’ Em Sit’ Em Quarterbacks – Week 16


Start of the Week –

Jameis Winston vs Houston Texans

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Winston has been on a roll lately in his campaign to save his job for the 2020 season. He had a good start last week against the Lions with over 450 yards passing and four touchdowns. He now has a date with the Houston Texans who have allowed 30 touchdown passes and the third most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Winston is still dealing with a thumb injury and is out his two best wideouts, but he is still my start of the week heading into this one.

Matt Ryan vs Jacksonville Jaguars


Ryan had an okay day at the office putting up two touchdown passes to Julio Jones against one of the best defenses in the league…so yeah no big deal. He gets a much easier task this week going up against the Jacksonville Jaguars who since Week 12 have given up an average of more than 22 points to quarterbacks. He is a top ten option this week!

Ryan Tannehill vs New Orleans Saints


Tannehill might have thrown an interception last weekend against the Texans, but he still delivered two passing touchdowns and ran in for a score as well. Though Brissett didn’t have much luck against them, I actually like Ryan Tannehill a lot in this one as the Saints give up nearly 20 points per game to opposing home signal callers this season. Look for him and A.J. Brown to go off.

Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Cincinnati Bengals


Fitzpatrick believe it or not has been a sneaky old man when it comes to fantasy points this season. It should not be a secret that he needs to be started this weekend against possibly the worst defense in the NFL throughout the year; The Cincinnati Bengals. They have allowed nearly 20 points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, and for Ryan’s sake they have yielded five rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks as well which is something Fitzpatrick loves to do when he is under pressure.

Daniel Jones vs Washington Redskins


Jones is eyeing up a return to play against the Washington Redskins and boy I’d love to see what he can do in their second encounter with Washington. In his NFL starting debut Jones put up four total touchdowns on Washington with two passing ones and two rushing ones. Jones is making a return back so maybe we see lightning strike twice.


Aaron Rodgers vs Minnesota Vikings

Kyler Murray vs Seattle Seahawks

Andy Dalton vs Miami Dolphins


Sit of the Week –

Tom Brady vs Buffalo Bills


It gives me great joy that I get to write about Brady in this formatting. Yes I am hating, and I do not really care. Aside from my personal feelings about him he has a dangerous matchup at hand against the Buffalo Bills. The last time they faced off he scored less than four points and with their defense on a roll and Brady not having a lot of weapons to work with, it just makes sense to sit Father Time this Saturday.

Jared Goff vs San Francisco 49ers

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams

Goff couldn’t come through for the Rams as his two touchdown to one interception ratio wasn’t enough to get them the win. Now he goes up against the 49ers who just took a loss to the Falcons. That does not mean Goff will find success here like Matt Ryan did. The last time Goff faced the 49ers he managed one single fantasy point. Don’t make that mistake again people.

Josh Allen vs New England Patriots

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys

Something in my heart hopes Josh Allen can find success this weekend against the Patriots. last time the Bills had the Patriots on the ropes, but Allen’s costly mistakes ended up giving away the game to New England. Even though he has improved, he still has a huge hill to climb as the Patriots have given up the fewest points to quarterbacks at home this season.

Baker Mayfield vs Baltimore Ravens


Mayfield threw two touchdowns against the Cardinals last week, but he still threw an interception against a shaky defense. He remains a very risky option against the Ravens this week. There is no doubt that they will still be steamed over their loss to him and the Browns last time. Expect Mayfield to be pressured and pressured hard.

Mitch Trubisky vs Kansas City Chiefs


Mitch had a chance to get into the good graces of fantasy owners last weekend against the Packers and he failed to wow them in my honest opinion. His matchup against Green bay was a hard one though to his credit, but it doesn’t make it anymore helpful when he faces the Chiefs this week. According to stats, over the last four weeks no team has allowed fewer touchdowns and fantasy points to enemy quarterbacks.


Sam Darnold vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Derek Carr vs Los Angeles Chargers

Jacoby Brissett vs Carolina Panthers
