Fantasy Football Playoffs Advice
If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 16 AFC showdown.
James Robinson Fantasy
Start James Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: James Robinson is officially back as a fantasy star. He racked up 17.8 PPR points in his first game post-Urban Meyer, handling a healthy 21 touches for 88 yards from scrimmage and 1 TD. Robinson remains Jacksonville's only reliable playmaker, and he'll get a great matchup to reward managers for their patience. The Jets surrender the most PPR points per game to RBs this season, setting Robinson up for a potentially huge day.
Jamison Crowder Fantasy
Start Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets: There's no appealing offensive weapon on the Jets right now, but Jamison Crowder has been a steady producer of late. Operating as the No. 1 wideout with Corey Davis and Elijah Moore out, Crowder has registered at least 6 targets in each of the past three games. The results aren't spectacular -- 6.7 targets, 4.0 receptions, 40.3 yards per game with zero TDs -- but they're a glimmer of hope in the blackhole that is New York's offense. Crowder is a fine last-minute FLEX fill-in for anyone who's in desperate need of points in Week 16.
Marvin Jones Jr. Fantasy
Sit Marvin Jones Jr., WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: It's hard to trust any of the Jags' wideouts right now, and that's especially the case for Marvin Jones Jr. He's recorded 2 receptions and fewer than 20 yards in two of his last three games, but he also went for 6 catches and 70 yards in the other contest during that span. That kind of inconsistency makes him a high-risk FLEX play at best. New York has also limited opposing WRs to the seventh-fewest PPR points this season, so stay clear of Jones in this one.
Michael Carter/Tevin Coleman Fantasy
Sit Michael Carter and Tevin Coleman, RBs, New York Jets: The Jets' backfield is too difficult to read. Tevin Coleman and Michael Carter both handled 8 rushing attempts in Week 15, but it was the former (50 yards) who outpaced the latter (18 yards). Austin Walter handled 2 carries as well, and it was Zach Wilson and Braxton Berrios who scored New York's two rushing TDs against the Miami Dolphins. Carter should be the lead back, but he's clearly working his way back from injury, and Coleman's production in his absence complicates things. Neither RB is worth banking on with the fantasy season on the line.
