Start’ Em Sit’ Em Wide Receivers – Week 16

Starts

Start of the Week –

Brandon Aiyuk vs Arizona Cardinals

Aiyuk did great just as I expected last weekend against the Cowboys. I would fire him up once again as the rookie as established himself as the main receiver with other names and pass catchers being out. They place the Cardinals who have let receivers get away from them in the past, and with news of George Kittle maybe coming back, they might lean more towards covering him.

Allen Robinson vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Robinson has reached greta levels of fantasy production as of late with Trubisky coming back into the fold. He has a great revenge game up to par with his old team; the Jacksonville Jaguars. There should be nothing stopping you from throwing Robinson despite the amount of work that has been dedicated to the Bears running game. He should go over 100 yards easy or possibly even get multiple touchdowns in this one.

D.J. Moore vs Washington Football Team

D.J. Moore has had a weird 2020 season. From injuries, to COVID, to little points, to big points, he has done it all. He was Bridgewater’s main target last weekend as Robby Anderson has kind of regressed in production of late. Knowing this is a revenge game against his former team, Ron Rivera should waste no time in using his best weapon against the Washington Football Team’s defense.

Cooper Kupp vs Seattle Seahawks

Cooper Kupp went from dominating fantasy force last year to average this year as Robert Woods has regained his reigns as the Rams’ number one receiver. Look for Cupp to get back as he and Woods should be very busy against the Seattle Seahawks. Their defense ranks almost dead last against defending wide receivers so don’t be afraid to throw him in there this weekend.

Antonio Brown vs Detroit Lions

Antonio Brown finally had a game last weekend scoring over 20 fantasy points in that offensively overwhelmed unit of the Buccaneers. He should do quite well once again this week as the Buccaneers face the Detroit Lions. Their defense has struggled against basically everything this season including defending wide receivers. A lot of people might get the ball, but I predict Brown will be a goto guy again after his performance against the Falcons.

Sits

Sit of the Week –

T.Y. Hilton vs Pittsburgh Steelers

T.Y. has me a little nervous this week as he faces the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has had two great weeks before putting in a decent one against the Texans as the Colts relied on other weapons and the run game to put away Houston. I feel like the same thing might happen here against the Steelers. Hilton will be heavily covered by the Steelers secondary so maybe just avoid this matchup altogether.

JuJu Smith-Schuster vs Indianapolis Colts

JuJu didn’t have his best game last weekend as he caught only three catches for 15 yards and fumbled the ball. He has stated that he plans on stopping with the dancing on enemy logos at the beginning of games, but in my mind, that is just the kid having some fun. I imagine he will get in on track, but Johnson and Claypool getting more looks as of late, it would be my advisement to sit him this weekend against the Colts.

Tyler Lockett vs Los Angeles Rams

Lockett has a habit of falling short near the playoffs, and last weekend was no surprise to me as he was a sit again for me. He will face the Rams this weekend, and he might get loose as I believe Metcalf might be covered by Ramsey, but I just can’t seem to trust him with a lot of other wide receiver options out there for you to choose.

D.J. Chark vs Chicago Bears

Chark did what he could against the Ravens last weekend, but it was to no avail. He will have another chance against a tough defense, but overall, I do not like the odds against the Chicago Bears. Their defense was able to hold certain receivers to poor points. Chark will be one of those in my honest opinion. So it would be in your best interest as a fantasy manager to sit him.

Marquise Brown vs New York Giants

Brown might be a decent shot here this weekend against the Giants due to how Baker and his receivers did last weekend against the Giants, but in my mind Brown will be a fifty-fifty high risk high reward player this weekend against New York. Lamar might keep the ball himself, or even possibly turn to Dobbins or even Mark Andrews in the passing game. it is a lot of stress that fantasy managers shouldn’t have so he is a low end flex at best, but I would personally sit him.
