Arian Foster's calf injury one of many making headlines already

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.

NFL Injury Report: Daniel Jones, Ezekiel Elliott, Antonio Gibson, Allen Robinson for Week 16

Jones is expected back on Sunday but you shouldn't trust him to help win a fantasy championship
NFL Injury Report: Daniel Jones, Ezekiel Elliott, Antonio Gibson, Allen Robinson for Week 16

Many fantasy owners may feel either confident or discouraged following Alvin Kamara’s SIX-touchdown game on Christmas Day. It’s very likely that Kamara either won or lost you the game by Friday night.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: Baker Mayfield and Other QB/TE/DST Fantasy Advice

Mayfield has been on fire the past month but he'll be missing several wide receivers on Sunday

In Week 16, fantasy owners have to set their best possible lineups. The fantasy championship literally depends on it. At this point, drop any dead weight on your bench and grab anyone that you might either consider playing or you don’t want to play against.

 

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 16: David Montgomery and Other RB/WR Fantasy Advice

Montgomery has been an RB1 over the past four weeks and that should continue in Week 16

For Week 16, fantasy owners need to make sure that they don’t make any errors when setting their line-ups. While you cannot predict injury, be sure that your line-ups look the way you want them to. For example, recognize that there are games on Friday and Saturday this week. Do not put those players in your flex spots if you can help it. This will give you more flexibility on Sunday if you want to add an extra wide receiver or running back and start them.

 

Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Just when you thought there was some clarity with the Rams RB situation, 2020 stepped in to muddy things up
Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

There is a glaring omission at the top of my Week 16 fantasy football running back rankings.

 

Flex Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Ito Smith could be a wise choice for a flex spot this week now that he's the Falcons' No. 1 RB
Flex Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

We start the Week 16 fantasy football flex rankings with a little postscript to last week. I mentioned how I hated the fact that I was recommending a player in Chad Hansen who was in my opponent's lineup last week. And Hansen absolutely has a strong week and made me look somewhat smart.

 

Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Justin Tucker is the No. 1 ranked kicker for Week 16 against the New York Giants
Kicker Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Because it's 2020, the top two fantasy kickers for Week 15 were Cairo Santos (owned in one percent of leagues) and Nick Folk (owned in three percent). Sam Ficken (zero percent owned) had the same number of fantasy points as Rodrigo Blankenship and Younghoe Koo. It has been increasingly difficult to predict how fantasy kickers will perform. In general, it's best to have a kicker on an offense that continues to score points. Next, look at how often the team tries a two-point conversion (the Eagles often try for two).

Defense/Special Teams Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

The Cleveland Browns face the New York Jets in Week 16 and are the top DST
Defense/Special Teams Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Only two fantasy defense/special teams (DSTs) scored touchdowns in Week 15, a sharp drop from Week 14. However, defensive touchdowns are always a gamble. Fantasy owners, especially in Week 16, should be looking at the best possible matchups. Look at the waiver wire in your league. It is possible that some DSTs have been dropped and not picked back up. The Buffalo Bills, the No.

Tight End Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Looking at the TE position for some good luck in the fantasy championship? Perhaps it is time to Knox on wood!
Tight End Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

My Week 16 fantasy football tight end rankings might be a bit surprising to frequent readers. The simple reason is that I have one of my favorite TEs this year, Darren Waller, outside of the top three this week.

 

Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Speaking from personal experience, trust MVS at your own risk
Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

My Week 16 fantasy football wide receiver rankings don't have any major discrepancies with the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) this week. So I've got Keenan Allen a spot or two below A.J. Brown or Justin Jefferson. My guess is no one is actually trying to decide which one of those to start or sit. If you have any combination of those WRs, you are starting all of them.
