Which favorites are the best as core lineup builders for Week 16?
- Falcons (vs. Jaguars)
- Colts (vs. Panthers)
- Ravens (at Browns)
- Seahawks (vs. Cardinals)
- Chargers (vs. Raiders)
- Broncos (vs. Lions)
Falcons (vs. Jaguars)
Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are each near the top of their respective positional rankings, and stacking them makes a ton of sense in GPPs or cash. A premium tandem in a week full of them.
Ravens (at Browns)
How can Lamar Jackson not be your top-ranked main slate quarterback? Price be damned, he's in a zone and executing to near perfection. The Ravens get to play an undisciplined divisional foe this week in the Browns, and they'll remain motivated as they push for the top seed and a first-round bye. Pairing Jackson with Hollywood Brown, Mark Andrews, or Mark Ingram II is a viable strategy. Of the three, I prefer Andrews.
Seahawks (vs. Cardinals)
The Cardinals defense is downright terrible, and the Seahawks are still pushing for playoff positioning. Chris Carson is at, or near, the top of this week's running back rankings. Tyler Lockett appears healthy again and back on top of the pecking order. Both are hyper-valuable options this week. DK Metcalf is a GPP option, but too volatile for cash lineups. Russell Wilson isn't my favorite quarterback this week, but he's certainly worth being overexposed versus the field in GPPs.
