It’s Week 16 of the National Football League. We have some Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Tips for you to consider when you are putting your lineups together. All prices are based from Draftkings. Good luck!
Will Grier ($4,300)
Grier was known to let it fly during his time at West Virginia and now it’s time to see what he has to offer as he gets his first NFL start this upcoming Sunday. I’m not saying you guys should be expecting the numbers he put up in college but given Grier’s very cheap price and the matchup, he looks like a safe play for Sunday’s slate. The Colts are coming off a 4 TD performance from Drew Brees and 4 from Jameis Winston the week before that while being the 25th ranked team in the league against opposing quarterbacks. Will Grier is not at that level of talent but interim head coach Perry Fewell is willing to risk it to halt the 6 game losing streak the Panthers are currently on.
DeAndre Washington ($4,000)
Jacobs has been a lovely bright spot for the Raiders all season but his shoulder injury has him out for this upcoming matchup with the Chargers. Washington has been productive in his absence and given his price, it’s fair to assume he will be pretty highly owned. The Chargers are in the top half of the league against opposing running backs but many different factors lead to a good opportunity for Washington. Raider receivers have struggled with dropped passes but Washington showed good promise in his last game with six receptions on seven targets. Richard figures to be the featured back in most passing situations but Washington having the ability to reel in catches out of the backfield boosts his value.
Zach Ertz ($6,200)
By this point we have all seen the ineffectiveness from the Eagles receivers and the continued success from the tight end position. Ertz can put up as many fantasy points as any receiver can if not more given his red zone efficiency. Coming into an extremely pivotal matchup, it’s safe to assume that Wentz will be looking towards his favorite target quite often. Dem boyz have struggled the last two weeks against opposing tight ends allowing a combined 21 catches for 218 yards. The Cowboys allow the fifth most points to tight ends, which also helps out our case. Ertz has been outperforming receivers that are priced similarly to him and it’s easy to see why.
Joe Mixon ($6,600)
Joe Mixon and the rest of the Bengals offense has usually operated while playing from behind but that hasn’t stopped them from feeding him regularly. They go head to head against the Dolphins this week which figures to be a competitive game given both teams’ record and could lead to an outstanding performance from Mixon. Just given his recent games, Mixon has carried the ball 23 and 25 times in the last two weeks. On top of that, Miami allows 141 rushing yards per game. We saw the damage Mixon was able to do against a very good front 7 of New England and we hope he’s able to carry the momentum into this week’s matchup.
DK Metcalf ($5,900)
I really like Russell Wilson this week going up against the Cardinals and that means one of his receivers is bound to have a big game. Tyler Lockett is also another guy who can explode but given the price differential and style of play, I would go after Metcalf as the safe pick. The Cardinals secondary has not been great this season and honestly the only concern I have with stacking Seahawk players is the possibility of a blowout. Metcalf has scored at least 11 fantasy points in his last three games and looks to continue the streak on Sunday. Arizona allows 290.4 yards per game, which is dead last in the league, and those yards have to come from someone and Metcalf is ready to go eat.
