Welcome to the 16th week of Fantasy Football Flashback. Here we celebrate the accomplishments of the most trusted players of the week. The semi-final was a bit of a dud in terms of explosive playmakers. A combination of major injuries to his QB and extreme cold weather made him his only 30-point performance in a week. However, his next 10 players were able to post the best total in Week 16 and lead the team to the championship round.
Akers put the finishing touches on one of the most volatile fantasy seasons of all time when he rushed for 118 yards and three touchdowns in a 51-14 win over the Broncos. The 23-year-old gained zero his yards in Week 1 after being drafted as his RB2 at mid-level. He hasn’t played since Weeks 6-8 and was apparently on his way to leave Los Angeles before the Rams couldn’t find him. trading partner. A man forgotten in many fantasy leagues by the playoffs, Akers came out of nowhere to lead all points scorers in the biggest week yet this season. He is now a borderline must-have starter heading into Week 17 against the Chargers.

Hockenson joined Josh Jacobs this season as he caught 13 passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in a narrow win over the Giants, making him the only top two scorer in two weeks. Remarkably, his Week 16 results were slightly lower than his Week 4 effort as a member of the Lions (179 yards and 2 points). Despite posting mediocre stats in his first five games at TE, his two big games accounted for 41% of his total points scored (160.9) this season, pushing him to second-place TE.
Lamb caught 10 passes for 120 yards and scored twice in the 40-34 win over the Eagles, his biggest win of the season for Dallas. This performance is a three-year break as he has exceeded 100 yards in four of his last seven games after never reaching 100-yard height in his first eight weeks of the season. It showed the newly elevated ceiling of the eye pro. Lamb has the potential to record a game-changing total when he faces his team against the Titans in Week 17.
4th: Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys, 28.98
Prescott did more than just a full pass to Ram on Saturday, with 347 passing yards, 41 rushing yards and three aerial scores in the win over Philadelphia. The Cowboys’ signal-caller has recovered a lot of fantasy value after losing a lot of time through injury, as he threw for 2,109 yards and 19 TDs in the last eight games. Like Ram, Prescott is a great option against the Titans in Week 17.
Smith and teammate AJ Brown surpassed 100 yards in Dallas on Sunday, and Smith also found the end zone twice in the afternoon for 113 yards on eight catches. Both wides his receivers have been performing great in recent weeks, and Smith remains close to the end of the deal with him tallying 405 yards and his four touchdowns in the last four games. Whether working for Jalen Hurts or Gardner Minshew, Smith is a lineup rock for the Championship Week game against New Orleans.
Kittle was Brock Purdy’s favorite choice on Saturday, catching 6/8 targets for 120 yards and two touchdowns. It was his third multi-touchdown attempt in six weeks. However, like most tight ends this year, Kittle was inconsistent, and in six games he logged less than 30 yards. Still, Kittle is a great option for Week 17 when facing a below-average Raiders defense against passes.
7th: Tyler Higby, TE, Los Angeles Rams, 25.90
Higbee capped off a big week for the mid-level tight end, with nine catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns in a one-sided win against Denver. Like his teammate Akers, Higbie came almost out of nowhere in this game-changing performance as he entered Week 16 with just 482 yards and one touchdown. Higbee is more likely to be a wonder of the week than a championship contributor. Baker at quarterback because the Rams’ passing attack by his Mayfield is unreliable.
Goff has looked different from past Lions QBs in recent weeks as he helped the fantasy team while winning games. But the 28-year-old was like the quintessential Detroit signal-caller on Saturday, falling behind early and then piling up his yardage with lots of passes in futile attempts to lure his team back into the game. I was. Still, Goff deserves credit for averaging over 300 yards and his two runs in the last five contests.
In Week 16, Burrow seemed to single-handedly lead the Fantasy team to victory as he hit three first-half touchdowns. It’s nothing spectacular, but has an excellent line of stats (375 passing yards, 3 scores, 2 interceptions). With 1,831 total yards and 17 touchdowns over the past six games, Burrow was a late-season savior who was tasked with a tough championship week when he visited the Bills. increase.
10th: Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings, 25.30
After a slow start against the Giants, Jefferson picked up momentum in the second half, finishing the game with 12 catches for 133 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown. The third-year pro now leads his NFL by a large margin in both catches and his receiving yards. He also has a total fantasy in his points he runs away from WR competition and Tyreek his Hill lead over his 30.
