Week 16 – QB Rankings


Philip Rivers @ Lions –

It appears Philip Rivers is finally healthy, or at least he’s playing like the guy we remember from a year ago. While the past few weeks haven’t presented the matchups that would allow Rivers to post huge numbers, this weeks’ game against the Lions could be one of the wilder offensive performances on both sides of the football, we’ve seen all year.

Because the Lions lack a running game, extra possessions should be available for the Chargers, as games tend to last long with pass heavy offenses on the field. Yes, Ryan Mathews is back to playing like a RB-1, but Rivers should be good for 350 yards and three touchdowns in this game.

Matt Ryan @ Saints –

The Falcons passing game is heating up and with your Super Bowl Championship on the line, what a better way to finish things than having Matt Ryan in your lineup on Monday Night Football. Ryan should be in a shootout as both teams are still fighting for playoff positioning.

Aaron Rodgers vs. Bears –

Beat up and an undefeated season now out of reach, the Packers could be close to benching Rodgers in what should be an early blowout against the Bears in Green Bay. Throw in possible weather concerns and Rodgers is out of my top five in quarterback rankings for the first time this year, but it’s likely that the options above him aren’t on your roster, if you have Rodgers. You can’t bench Rodgers, but don’t be surprised of he stays around 20 fantasy points this week.
