Julio Jones is expected to return after missing the past two games, but should you trust him to help your team win a championship?
This is it. It’s Week 16 of the fantasy football season, which means you have made it this far and are one win away from a championship or perhaps still in a position to win some cash in your respective league. This week will especially be busy for just about everyone, and considering most of the games are on Saturday, you will need to get your lineup ready a little earlier than usual.
I am hoping AthlonSports.com’s positional rankings helped you to some degree this season, especially if you are still consulting them up until now. I myself had a miserable seasonal league performance, as the best I can do in any of my leagues is third place. Thankfully I have my beloved DFS to fall back on, and most importantly less to worry about on Christmas Eve, which also happens to be my wife’s birthday.
The one positive to not having teams in contention, is not worrying about the games too much. Although I would be insane if I said I didn’t want to be playing for a championship. That is the point right?
Either way, you got this far, and aside from another week with question marks around Julio Jones (who is expected to play) I hope your lineup that has got you here is healthy and ready to roll.
Be sure as always to read the other positional rankings, as well as stay tuned on injuries, and any other news (such as weather) that could impact your lineups. Enjoy the holiday weekend, family, gifts and of course, the football.
