DFS Roundtable: Big Week 16 Favorites

The DFS team discusses the big Week 16 favorites

The Patriots (vs. Buffalo) and Colts (vs. Giants) are more than touchdown favorites in Week 16. For core options to DFS lineup building who stands out from these two offenses? Who is the best stack with Tom Brady for the Patriots? Is Eric Ebron a value after his invisible Week 15 against Dallas outside of having a huge reception called back by a penalty? Which run game option do you trust?

Phil Alexander:

For core options to DFS lineup building who stands out from these two offenses?

Andrew Luck for cash games. He's the QB7 on DraftKings, making him a nice value relative to the rest of the position's top-tier plays. Luck's two recent poor games came against tough competition in Jacksonville and Dallas. With the exception of those two games, he has easily exceeded a 3x multiple of his current salary in every game since Week 4. A matchup against the Giants on his home field should result in 20+ fantasy points for Luck rather comfortably.

Who is the best stack with Tom Brady for the Patriots?

Julian Edelman is the chalk answer. There's no question White is one of the better young cornerbacks in the league, but Robby Anderson (7-4-76-1) and Kenny Golladay (8-7-146-0) have gotten the better of him in the last two games.

Is Eric Ebron a value after his invisible Week 15 against Dallas outside of having a huge reception called back by a penalty?

Yes. Chalk last week up to tight end volatility, a bad drop, and Dallas' strong pass defense. Ebron presents a mismatch for the Giants, who have faltered every time they've faced an upper-echelon tight end this season. Five-to-seven catches and two touchdowns are within his range of possible outcomes.

Which run game option do you trust?

No one on the Patriots. Rex Burkhead's return has put a cramp in James White's once-elite fantasy value and Sony Michel is losing goal-line work to James Devlin of all people. While he hasn't been the most consistent option this season, rostering Marlon Mack is not just an exercise in chasing last week's points. The Giants have been gashed on the ground since trading defensive tackle Damon Harrison and Mack has proven himself as an explosive runner when healthy.
