NFL training camps are in full swing with league-wide preseason action ready to commence later this week. Better still, the official start of the regular season is a little more than a month away, which means this is a perfect time to update Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Big Board.

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Mike Williams and Other WR/TE Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

Waiver wire pickups like Williams, DaeSean Hamilton and Taywan Taylor could help you win your fantasy football championship

Thinking back to fantasy football draft season, who would have thought that Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams would be first and second in total fantasy points scored by wide receivers?

 

They both have more than 200 fantasy points (in standard leagues). That's more than Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. and DeAndre Hopkins. But that’s fantasy football.

Could Henry, Jamaal Williams or Chris Carson help you win your fantasy league?

If you’re one of the fortunate fantasy football owners to have Todd Gurley or Derrick Henry (or both — can you imagine?) on your roster, then you’re probably still playing and hoping for one more week of pure domination from them.

 

While Gurley, and even Henry with the way he has been playing, are easy starts, what about those borderline RBs that could make or break your fantasy football championship dreams?

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Tom Brady and Other QB/DST Start/Sit Fantasy Advice

It might be hard, but you might want to sit Brady this week if you want to win a fantasy football championship

We've finally made it to the fantasy football championship round. Even if you've made it this far, finding a quality quarterback may not always be a simple decision.

 

Last week both Sam Darnold and Josh Allen finished in the top four in fantasy scoring for quarterbacks while Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff were big-time duds and took down many fantasy dreams with them.

Fantasy football championship weekend is finally here. What a feeling it is if you made it this far. But it’s not over yet. For the ultimate bragging rights, you need to win this week, and choosing which running backs to play in Week 16 is more important than ever.

 

Of course, you are going to start your studs, but what about the fringe guys? What about a running back as your flex?

 

Quarterback Rankings Week 16

Quarterback Rankings Week 16

Week 15 was a tough week for quarterbacks in general, but fantasy owners needing big performances from players such as Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Jared Goff, Andrew Luck, among others, were disappointed. Only two quarterbacks threw for more than 300 yards: Philip Rivers and Goff. No quarterback threw more than two touchdowns (Matt Ryan did throw for two and ran one in). But Newton, Brees, Rodgers, Goff, and Luck, who are typically QB1s, combined for zero touchdowns.

In Week 16, fantasy owners are looking to put together the best possible lineup with the pieces that they have left of their roster. By this point of the season, many of the players originally drafted are no longer on fantasy rosters.

 

Whether it is because they are injured or just underperforming, fantasy owners should take a long look at the waiver wire to see if there is anyone out there that may lead their fantasy team to a championship.

Fantasy owners in Week 15 need to win, it's that simple. It’s the playoffs, whether the real deal or the consolation bracket and making sure players are active is key. At the wide receiver position, Odell Beckham Jr. and DeSean Jackson have already been ruled out. Tight ends Jordan Reed and Geoff Swaim won't play either.

Most playoff teams have a solid roster of receivers that put them in the final four of their fantasy football leagues. But what if a receiver’s points have been dwindling lately? Which receivers will be affected by quarterback changes? How serious is that “not serious” ankle or knee that landed your starter on the injury report?
