DraftKings Picks Week 16: NFL DFS lineup advice for daily fantasy football tournaments

With only one week left in most year-long fantasy seasons, there is a good probability that you have been eradicated out of your league’s playoff race. The excellent news is that there are nonetheless loads of NFL DFS contests to take pleasure in as the ultimate two weeks of the NFL’s common season rolls on. This week’s Sunday slate is a bit lighter on video games than weeks previous, however we nonetheless discovered some fascinating picks for our Week 16 DraftKings match lineup.

For the primary time in a few weeks, the RB spot is simply middle-of-the-road on the DFS slate. A number of accidents and prime backs taking part in in Saturday or prime-time video games have eradicated a number of the prime performs there, so we’re solely spending up at one RB spot. Our different two RBs are within the average-to-cheap worth vary, although we’re stacking our flex RB with our QB. That stack will assist give us some critical lineup differentiation, and it additionally allowed us to spend up at WR. This week’s receiver slate is fairly top-heavy, so getting some gamers that would pop off offers this lineup a excessive ceiling.

WEEK 16 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Matchups that we focused on the receiver spot included the Falcons and Seahawks, whereas the run defenses of the Jaguars and Texans proceed to be models that we wish to exploit. We even have included a second, extra conventional kind of stack — an RB paired with a D/ST unit — that would repay in spades if the Washington-Carolina recreation script goes as we’re hoping.

WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

This lineup is for Week 16 DraftKings fundamental slate tournaments.

  • Finley is the most affordable quarterback on the slate. In GPP codecs, it pays to spend down at QB, and Finley truly has some upside on this matchup. He simply did properly to steer a methodical offensive assault towards the Steelers. Sure, he threw for simply 87 yards, however he added a TD via the air. Extra necessary, the Bengals gave the Steelers a number of zone-read appears, and Finley was in a position to scramble for 47 yards at a TD because of this. Finley’s mobility may give the Texans some hassle, and even when he cannot rating on the bottom, the Texans have allowed the eighth-most passing yards and eighth-most passing TDs to QBs this 12 months. Finley’s general upside is fairly excessive when contemplating his sub-$5K price-tag, and spending down this far lets us spend up on the different talent positions in our lineup.

  • In 4 consecutive weeks, Montgomery has totaled not less than 27.1 DraftKings factors. He has six complete TDs in that span and has eclipsed 100 scrimmage yards in each recreation. In Week 16, the Bears are taking up the Jaguars, a group that has allowed the fourth-most DK factors to RBs this 12 months. Count on the Bears to proceed to feed Montgomery, and if he can have one other 30-touch recreation like he did towards the Vikings, he needs to be in for an enormous day.

  • The standing of Antonio Gibson (toe) remains to be unknown, however even when he returns, McKissic remains to be a great play due to his PPR receiving upside in DraftKings’ scoring system. McKissic has double-digit DK scoring outputs in 5 of his previous seven video games, and in one among his two sub-10 video games, he had 9.9 DK factors. Since Week 9, McKissic has averaged 8.4 targets per recreation and may proceed to see loads of work as a receiver. McKissic has additionally been productive whatever the quarterback. Alex Smith loves focusing on him, however Dwayne Haskins simply helped him to log a season-high 25.7 DK factors towards the Seahawks. McKissic ought to do properly towards a Panthers protection that has allowed the fifth-most DK factors and fifth-most receptions (82) to RBs this 12 months.

  • The Falcons are coming near overtakingthe Seahawks for the lead within the coveted “most DK factors allowed to WRs” race. Atlanta has allowed 45.7 DK factors per recreation to the place (Seattle, 47.1), and that features a whopping 2,871 yards via 14 video games. For these holding rating at dwelling, that is over 200 yards to wideouts per contest. Hill has been one among fantasy soccer’s most constant pass-catchers this 12 months and has caught a TD in 11 of 14 video games. He ought to have an opportunity to shred the Falcons’ leaky secondary, as they do not have anybody with the velocity to cowl him. Hill has seven video games with not less than 20 DK factors and posted a ridiculous 60.9 towards Tampa Bay a number of weeks in the past. His excessive ceiling and comparatively excessive ground will give this lineup some pop, so it is value spending up for him.

  • The Seahawks have allowed a league-high 2,957 receiving yards to WRs this 12 months to associate with 255 catches, 27 greater than the next-highest complete. The final time they performed the Rams, Cooper Kupp, Woods, and Josh Reynolds mixed for 177 receiving yards, with Reynolds surprisingly main the cost. It is going to be arduous for the Seahawks to carry Kupp and Woods in examine once more, so we’ll roll with Woods as a possible top-tier play on this recreation. Woods has posted not less than 15.8 DK factors in 4 of his previous 5 video games and he’s averaging 10.8 targets and eight catches per recreation in that span. If Jared Goff retains trying his means, Woods ought to be capable to shred the Seahawks and make life troublesome for his or her seconary. Kupp is a bit cheaper, however the ground is increased for Woods.

  • Here is one of many largest dangers of our match lineup. Jeudy has simply 4 catches in his previous 4 video games and he solely has three double-digit DK-point outings since Week 6. That mentioned, Jeudy remains to be averaging 7.6 targets per recreation since Week 8 should you exclude his one-target recreation when Kendall Hinton began for the Broncos, so Drew Lock hasn’t given up throwing to him. Final time that Jeudy confronted the Chargers, he caught 4 passes for 73 yards, and that kind of success could be a pleasant buoy for this lineup. At lower than $4K, Jeudy is value it as a bargain-barrel possibility who may vastly outperform his pricing.

  • The Jets have allowed an NFL-high 926 yards and 13 TDs to TEs this 12 months. Hooper tied for his second-highest goal complete of the season (6) towards the Giants and caught 5 passes for 41 yards and a TD. With Baker Mayfield on a scorching streak, trusting Hooper on this glorious matchup looks as if an important transfer, as he may simply be a top-five TE this week at a low worth.

  • Bernard simply completely roasted the Steelers protection for 97 complete yards and two TDs on 26 touches. The efficiency was a shock contemplating how Bernard had run in earlier weeks. The Texans have allowed an NFL-high 1,916 speeding yards to RBs and are tied for the league excessive in speeding TDs allowed (17). In addition they have given up the seventh-most receiving yards to RBs (615). Bernard ought to simply make the most of this, and if he can catch some passes from Ryan Finley, we now have a pleasant, low-cost contrarian stack that would repay and provides us some lineup differentiation.

  • Washington has 40 sacks this season, and the Panthers are coping with a banged-up offensive line that has allowed Teddy Bridgewater to be sacked seven instances up to now couple of video games. These had been towards the Broncos and Packers, each groups that do not generate as a lot strain as Washington. Bridgewater and Co. may have hassle towards this protection, and Washington comes with a excessive ceiling and a excessive sack ground, so we’ll take them on for the mid-level worth of $3K right here.
