Week 16 of the NFL season is wrapping up Monday night. We had a nice 11-game main DFS slate on SuperDraft for Sunday, and now it’s time to recap our top plays to see who succeeded and who didn’t.  


Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles (1.2x score multiplier) 

After a disastrous showing against these Giants in Week 11, Hurts put on an opposite performance against them this week. He completed 17 of 29 passing attempts for 199 yards and two touchdowns, throwing no interceptions after 3 last time. For fantasy, his performance was only so-so, as he contributed only seven rushing yards, with the trio of Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jordan Howard handling the majority of the ground work.  

Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (1.15x) 

Any scant momentum the Stafford MVP hype train had left was dashed against the Vikings Sunday. While the Rams did walk away with a 30-23 victory, Stafford was not up to his standards. He finished the game 21 of 37 passing for a season-low of 197 yards. He did have one passing touchdown but also threw a season-high three interceptions.  

Running Backs 

James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars (1.15x) 

It was a sad day for Robinson. He managed only 10 rushing yards before leaving in the first half with an injury, which was later revealed to be a torn Achilles, ending his season. 

Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos (1.25x) 

Neither Williams nor Melvin Gordon brought much of any production to the Broncos offense Sunday. Gordon rushed for negative four yards on seven carries (adding a 4-yard reception for a net of zero yards on the day), while Williams rushed for 12. One the light plus side for Williams, he was able to find the end zone on the ground. He did add on two receptions for eight yards, but the running back committee did not have the dominating factor we expected against the Raiders.  

Wide Receivers 

DeVonta Smith, Philadelphia Eagles (1.5x) 

The young rookie receiver is showing what he is capable of. Smith led the Eagles receiving core once again, with seven targets on the day and five receptions. He finished with 80 receiving yards and one touchdown. With the 1.5x multiplier, Smith had a strong day.  

Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears (1.45x) 

The Bears pulled out all of the stops to defeat the Seattle Seahawks in the final minutes, notching a two-point conversion with a minute left to win. While Mooney contributed to the offense, he wasn’t able to find the end zone. Mooney tied David Montgomery with the most targets on the offense with nine. He finished with five receptions for 57 receiving yards. He had two rushing opportunities but only totaled two yards total on the ground. 

Tight Ends 

Noah Fant, Denver Broncos (1.55x) 

Fant catches almost everything thrown his way (he hasn’t had more than one incomplete target since Week 9), but the end zone remains elusive—he hasn’t scored since Week 7 against the Raiders. Sunday, he had four targets and three receptions. With just 30 receiving yards, his multiplier did not help him pay off.   

Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons (1.4x) 

Pitts’ ceiling is always going to be high. He played a huge role in the Falcons’ win over Detroit Sunday. He went perfect on his receptions as he had six targets on the day. Pitts hauled in six receptions for 102 yards, but he was held out of the end zone yet again. Russell Gage was second on the team in receiving yards Sunday at only 39, showing once again that this offense is Pitts-first. 

Top Plays 

Tee Higgins was a monster Sunday, finishing with 12 receptions for 194 yards and 2 touchdowns. His teammate Ja’Marr Chase also had a big game, catching 7 balls for 125 yards, though he didn’t score. 

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (525 yards and 4 TDs) and running back Joe Mixon (135 total yards and 2 touchdowns) also put up huge numbers. On the other side of that game, Mark Andrews was dominant again, even with third-string quarterback Josh Johnson under center. Andrews had 8 receptions for 125 yards and a score.  

Chargers RB Justin Jackson also had a huge game. Filling in for Austin Ekeler, Jackson had 162 scrimmage yards (64 rushing, 98 receiving) and scored twice, leading the team in rushing and receiving yardage.
