Start or Sit Week 16: Quarterbacks brought to you by Overtime Heroics. Fantasy players that are clear starters will not be included in this Start or Sit article such as Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, and Michael Thomas.  All the fantasy stats shown below will be based on a Point Per Reception (PPR) scoring format.

Start of the Week: Jameis Winston vs. Houston Texans

Jameis Winston has been on fire as of late, throwing for 450 yards and four touchdowns in each of the last two games. His hot streak should continue into Week 16 where he’ll face a vulnerable Houston secondary. As always, turnovers could be an issue for Jameis, but his rushing ability and consistent deep throws make up for them as he continues to be a dominant fantasy quarterback. 

Other Good Starts:

  • Deshaun Watson @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Dak Prescott @ Philadelphia Eagles
  • Philip Rivers vs. Oakland Raiders

Sit of the Week: Jared Goff @ San Francisco 49ers

Jared Goff and the Sean McVay run offense have been able to get things going recently, but not enough for Goff to achieve his ceiling. He’s only earned more than 18 fantasy points once since the Rams week 9 bye week. Last time he faced San Fran, he finished with -0.88 fantasy points. Look for a better option at quarterback for your fantasy championships. 

Other Good Sits:

  • Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Los Angeles Rams
  • Tom Brady vs. Buffalo Bills
  • Baker Mayfield vs. Baltimore Ravens
