Week 16 of the NFL season is here. We get an 11-game main DFS slate on SuperDraft Sunday, pending any more reschedulings (let’s hope not). Let’s dive in and see who will be the best plays at every position.


Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles (1.2x score multiplier)

The Eagles will face the New York Giants just a few weeks after their last matchup. Hurts struggled against them in Week 12 with no touchdowns and three interceptions. He bounced back in Week 15, as he threw one touchdown and rushed for two. The Giants rank 29th in quarterback hits and 24th in sacks. Hurts is dangerous when he has time in the pocket but when he needs to escape the pocket, he’s even more dangerous.

Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (1.15x)

The MVP talk could fire back up for Stafford, as he is back on track after a midseason dip. He had three straight games of three touchdowns and barely missed extending that streak in Week 15. Against the Seahawks Tuesday, Stafford threw for 244 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He now gets to face the Minnesota Vikings, who allow the second-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, 21.9 per game.

Running Backs

James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars (1.15x)

Back-to-back weeks of James Robinson being chalk? Yes, please. Coming off 18 carries against the Houston Texans with a touchdown, Robinson now gets the New York Jets. They still lead the league in fantasy points allowed to running backs at 32.8 points per game. He also was targeted more than Dare Ogunbowale in the passing game last week 6-2. With Carlos Hyde on the IR, Robinson will be the lead back once again.

Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos (1.25x)

Williams is in prime position this weekend as he gets to face the Las Vegas Raiders. Similar to the New York Jets, the Raiders also struggle against running backs, allowing 25.8 fantasy points per game. Williams may split carries with Melvin Gordon, but he is the main back in the passing game. Gordon has only been targeted more than Williams three times this season when both backs were playing. You may go the route of Gordon for the higher multiplier, but Williams has a higher upside.

Wide Receivers

DeVonta Smith, Philadelphia Eagles (1.5x)

Smith has shown some really bright spots in his rookie season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Smith has been the most targeted receiver this season by Jalen Hurts. He has only two games where he wasn’t the most targeted receiver which was in Weeks 3 and 12. With Week 15’s matchup against the Washington Football Team being the Jalen Hurts show, Smith was kept to three receptions for 40 receiving yards.

Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears (1.45x)

Mooney has been a top target for the Chicago Bears while their offense overall has been a mess. Leading the receiving core in four of the past five weeks, Mooney now gets to face the Seahawks. They are currently giving up 27.6 fantasy points to the wide receiver position. Mooney will be lining up across from Ugochukwu Amadi and mainly playing in the slot. He’s averaging six receptions and 66.3 receiving yards in the slot while averaging 14.5 fantasy points per game.

Tight Ends

Noah Fant, Denver Broncos (1.55x)

I’m running it back once again with Noah Fant as he’s a catching machine. He recorded five catches off six targets against the Cincinnati Bengals last week for 57 receiving yards. The Broncos face the Raiders Sunday; these two teams met previously in Week 6 and Fant had his best game of the season, seeing 11 targets and finishing with nine receptions for 97 receiving yards with one touchdown. Teddy Bridgewater will most likely be out and Drew Lock will start, but the Raiders struggle versus tight ends.

Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons (1.4x)

With a 1.4x multiplier this week, it’s hard to pass up on Pitts. He had a couple of down games recently but got back on track in Weeks 14 and 15. Russell Gage has been Matt Ryan’s main target, but Kyle Pitts has been a close second.
