Welcome into Week 16 of the 2021 season, and the latest in our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. Did you survive last week? I hope you did! Well, as last week has shown us anything can happen in the league, and you need to try to get backup options ready to slot in if you need to.
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Jimmy Garoppolo @TEN
I was thinking that Jimmy G was going to be ok last week, but he wasn’t because the Falcons just absolutely imploded. This week the Titans should be able to put up some level of competition. Garoppolo has had a number of weeks where he has scored multiple TDs. He should be able to get back to that level of performance this week.
Joe Burrow v BAL
Burrow and the Bengals didn’t go for that much against the Broncos, but after seeing what Aaron Rodgers managed last week, I’m thinking that Burrow will be able to come good in this game. Baltimore’s defense is down to the bare bones with injury/ COVID tearing the depth chart up.
Kirk Cousins v LAR
After last week and not even putting up 100 yards passing you might be tempted to bench Cousins. But don’t overthink it. He still threw for two TDS, continuing his multi-TD streak to 7 games. The Rams are a tough defense, but even so the Vikings should have a good shot at production through the air.
Tua Tagovailoa @NO
Tua hasn’t really done too much this season for fantasy. Not really hit too many heights, while not really destroying your team either. But this is not one to slot him in for, even in Superflex leagues. The Saints are a top-tier defense, and even managed to best the Tampa Bay offense to shut them out.
Ryan Tannehill v SF
The Titans offense hasn’t been the same effective unit from the start of the season. Not being able to rely on Derrick Henry to move the chains, and open up play-action, Tannehill has really struggled. It doesn’t help that the Titans receivers have been wiped with unavailability too. Either way, against the 49ers this isn’t a good play. Even in a Superflex league I’d look elsewhere.
