Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 14 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks

  Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 14 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks The last week of the fantasy football regular season is upon us, which means it's win-or-go-home time for plenty of teams. Fortunately, Vinnie Iyer is here with Week 14 fantasy lineup advice and DFS tips to help with your start 'em, sit 'em decisions.With four teams (Patriots, Dolphins, Colts, Eagles) on bye and a mountain of injuries, more than a few owners will be in a pinch this week. Worse, all of the key "questionable" players, like Alvin Kamara (knee), Darren Waller (knee), Melvin Gordon (hip), Darrell Henderson (quad), Julio Jones (hamstring), Keenan Allen (COIVID), and Deebo Samuel (groin), will likely cause some decisions to go down to the very last minute.

Don't you hate reruns -- especially when the origial episode sucked and was aired just one week earlier? Well, welcome to Week 16, where COVID and injuries will once again be affecting players right up until kickoff. Fortunately, it doesn't look like any games will be postponed, but with guys like Travis Kelce hoping to be cleared in time to play -- not to mention Dalvin Cook, Rhamondre Stevenson, Austin Ekeler, and Gabriel Davis who are already out -- life won't be easy for fantasy owners. Did we mention all the injuries? (Antonio Gibson, D.J. Moore, D'Andre Swift, Damien Harris, Adam Thielen). Fortunately, the weather is pretty decent, but when a fantasy football championship berth is on the line, you don't want all these issues. In an effort to make things a little easier, we've compiled all of our Week 16 fantasy rankings (PPR, standard, and superflex) in this article to help with your last-minute start 'em, sit 'em calls. Consider it your one-stop cheat sheet if you've put off deciding who to start until Sunday morning.

Fantasy RB PPR Rankings Week 16: Who to start, sit at running back in fantasy football

  Fantasy RB PPR Rankings Week 16: Who to start, sit at running back in fantasy football 'Tis the season for surprise running back breakouts. Our Week 16 fantasy RB PPR rankings can help you spot the potential sleepers.Ideally, matchups would be the biggest worry, and there are definitely a few that could cause some usual starters to wind up benches. The toughest calls in PPR leagues will be Chase Edmonds (vs. Colts) and Myles Gaskin (@ Saints). Both are facing brutal opponents, but their high-target ways usually keeps them in PPR lineups. However, both struggled last week, and while we can attribute some of that to both being "eased" back into their respective lineups, it still gives us pause this week.
