Week 16 Fantasy PPR RB Rankings

Sporting News

Dalvin Cook's going to steal a lot of the Week 16 RB rankings headlines, but it's really a simple situation. Be it Cook, Alexander Mattison or Mike Boone starting against the Packers on Monday Night Football, you'll want to play the starter in your fantasy championships. So, let's move on and get into some other questions when it comes to our Week 16 fantasy RB PPR rankings.

After watching James Conner and the Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 15, you might have a lot of questions about his usage. So do we. But he averaged 5.3 yards per carry, and as long as he doesn't do anything to bother his shoulder, we'd expect him to get more runs in Week 16 against the Jets and keep up a similar efficiency. He's also the type of guy who can catch at least a few passes, so you can rely on him in PPR. You can also count on Todd Gurley against a 49ers defense that just allowed Devonta Freeman some running room. Injuries have depleted that San Francisco group, and Gurley also catches passes and should be better than that bad matchup.

Devin Singletary, on the other hand, worries us. You could look at it one of two ways. One: Joe Mixon rushed for more than 60 yards in the first quarter against New England in Week 15. Two: New England has a great defense. There is a third wrinkle thrown in -- Frank Gore ran for 109 yards against the Pats in Week 4 when Singletary was hurt, but there's enough issues with the Buffalo offense as a whole to expect struggles and give reason to stay away from Singletary.

WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Wide receiver | Tight end

If you choose to bench Singletary, you'll need another option. Picking up Mattison and/or Boone from Minnesota is one approach. You could also see if Kerryon Johnson (knee) is available, as he looks likely to be activated from Injured Reserve and had shown an improved pass-catching ability early in the season. There's also PPR favorite Patrick Laird from Miami, who should have a chance to score against the Bengals in Week 16 and should also get his usual four or five catches.

In general, though, Week 16 is not the time to mess around too much. You've gotten to championships on the backs of probably a few strong RBs. Count on them to take you to glory unless a matchup is too good to avoid.
