Week 16 Fantasy Football Rankings by Position for PPR Leagues in Fantasy Playoffs

Week 16 Fantasy Football Rankings by Position for PPR Leagues in Fantasy Playoffs


Week 15 was one of the strangest weeks of fantasy football we've had this season. The four leading rushers of the week were Craig Reynolds, Jeff Wilson, D'Onta Foreman and Duke Johnson. Studs like Najee Harris and Ja'Marr Chase were held under 5.0 fantasy points. And Tom Brady was shutout for the first time in 15 years.

With the threat of COVID and injuries looming, fantasy managers need to prepare themselves for another weird week. Here are our Week 16 fantasy football rankings for PPR leagues.
