The Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Detroit Lions in what could be one of the highest-scoring games of the week. FanDuel Sportsbook gives this one a whopping 54-point over/under – the second-highest total of Week 16.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 16 Buccaneers-Lions showdown.

Tom Brady Fantasy

Start Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tom Brady just played his best half as a Buccaneer, and don't expect him to slow down against a terrible Lions' defense. Fantasy's QB10 in 2020 should be in for another monster game against a defense that surrenders top-four fantasy production to opposing QBs.

Marvin Jones Fantasy

Start Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions: Marvin Jones has been fantastic since taking over for Kenny Golladay. Since Golladay went down in Week 8, Jones has been the WR11 in PPR scoring during that eight-game span. The Buccaneers have been vulnerable through the air lately, so look for Jones to keep rolling in Week 16.

Antonio Brown Fantasy

Sit Antonio Brown, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Antonio Brown's first true breakout game as a Buccaneer came in Week 15, but that was more likely a fluke than a sign of things to come. He's still clearly the team's third option at WR. This was Brown's first game reaching 14.0 PPR points – a pretty low bar – as he was held under that mark in each of his first five appearances. Unless he hauls in another 50-yard bomb, Brown is not likely to have a big game on Saturday.

Matthew Stafford Fantasy

Sit Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions: Statistically, this year has been a real disappointment for Matthew Stafford and his fantasy managers. He's only had three 20-point performances on the year, which shows he doesn't exactly have much of a ceiling in 2020. And now he has to deal with a rib injury that's clearly impacting his performance. He's not someone you want to be relying on in the fantasy championships.
