Week 16 Rankings: Jaguars’ Blake Bortles Can Win You a Championship

RotoExperts Staff December 21, 2017 8:05PM EDT
First of all, I want to thank all of you. Thank you to those who listened to or watched any shows I was on, and thank you to those who read my articles and used my rankings. As the Fantasy season is coming to an end, I know all of you still reading have your eyes on a championship. I do as well, but I wanted to take a quick second to thank you for all the support. It means more than you know! Now, enough with the sappy stuff and on to our goal since last season; to win the chip!

This time of year you need to strip the names away and look at both recen t production and matchups. That is never more evident than when you look at my quarterback rankings. Case Keenum, Nick Foles and Blake Bortles inside the Top-10? Use these guys over Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Kirk Cousins? Yes, you absolutely should, in my opinion. Keenum has been super safe, has great weapons around him and gets a Packers defense that has allowed the most FPPG to quarterbacks over the past month.

Week 16

Foles is making his second start of the season but has a solid matchup against the Raiders. Not only that, but the Eagles let him throw 38 times. The yardage wasn’t great, as he threw for just 237 yards, but he found the end zone four times. You know who that box score reminds me of? Carson Wentz. He had five games this season in which he failed to throw for 240 yards but had multiple touchdowns.

As for Bortles, I’ve mentioned it before, but he has finished as a Top-12 QB in four straight games. This week, he gets the 49ers, who have allowed the ninth-most FPPG to opposing quarterbacks over the past month.

Jerick McKinnon is a running back I like this week that you can use over some household names, especially in PPR formats. McKinnon takes on the Packers, who have allowed 34 receptions to running backs over the past month, tied for the most in the league during that span. Just last week, McKinnon caught seven of his eight targets for 114 yards. In fact, he has six games this season in which he had five-or-more receptions.

If you have been riding Jimmy Garoppolo or Marquise Goodwin to the championship game, it’s been a fun ride, but it’s over. This week they go up against #CatScratchFever who have allowed just 14.2 FPPG to opposing quarterbacks over the past month. That is also inflated due to a pretty big game, albeit while trailing, by Russell Wilson. Perhaps you do not have a better option than Goodwin, who should still be heavily targeted, but regardless of where he lines up on the field, he will be going up against shutdown corners Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye. I think you can fade all 49ers this week.

I also am worried about Robby Anderson, who has to face Casey Hayward this week. In his first game this season with Bryce Petty, Anderson was targeted 12 times and caught five for 40 yards. That was in a tough matchup against Marshon Lattimore and the Saints, but it doesn’t get any easier this week. Could Anderson catch a deep pass or find the end zone? Of course, that is why I still have him as a WR3. But due to the poor quarterback play and a tough matchup, I am lower on him this week.

If you have stashed Greg Olsen, this is why. He proved he is fully back last week as he caught nine of his 12 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown. He needs to be in your lineup this week.
