Marquise Goodwin: Wide Receiver Rankings Week 16

Sterling Shepard: Flex Rankings Week 6

Week 16 is here and if you are still in need of fantasy positional rankings, then congratulations as you are hopefully in the championship game in your league. Or at worst, you have a shot at claiming third place.

Several of my higher-ranked choices at wide receiver for Week 15 flopped in a big way, and I know I wasn’t alone. The other issue aside from Jordy Nelson, or maybe Josh Gordon, is that you had no choice but to start studs like A.J. Green, Antonio Brown (who got hurt and is out this week), and Julio Jones. If you survived either way, kudos to you. Now let’s finish off the season on a high note!

It is championship week, so don’t get cute. Use what has worked. Players like Marquise Goodwin, Keelan Cole, Sterling Shepard (above, right) and the aforementioned Gordon have all had big weeks recently and have plenty appeal that makes them solid flex plays, at minimum. Gordon appears to be the riskiest because of the questions surrounding his quarterback.

Elsewhere, both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs should be in a solid spot in their matchup against Green Bay. It will be cold at Lambeau Field and no Aaron Rodgers for the Packers may mean Minnesota runs more, but Thielen and Diggs have been fairly consistent. There is a chance that the targets may go down a little because of conditions and/or game script though.

Peruse the rankings below and do with them what you see fit. These will be updated as the Saturday games closer. Thanks for reading this season, and I sincerely hope the articles, advice and information you found at helped you in some way this season, maybe even all the way to a fantasy championship!
