The regular season is coming to an end, and so is your fantasy football season. Those of you who aren’t in the championship game in your work/family/friend league may have given up, but I won’t. Maybe you can play some daily fantasy and make your buy-in back. I’ll try and keep my picks as brief as possible since Week 16 is already underway with a big performance from Alvin Kamara. So without further ado, this week’s fantasy predictions.

Top 3 QBs

Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills

Allen has been red hot this year and I expect that to continue this week vs. the Patriots. The Patriots will try and spoil a second seed for the Bills, but I expect the Bills train to keep rolling behind Allen this week.

Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers

Rodgers and the Packers host a tough Titans team that is looking to make a final push for a division title. I think this game is going to be high scoring with Rodgers throwing for 400+ yards and 4+ touchdowns.

Justin HerbertLos Angeles Chargers

The rookie signal-caller has had some down weeks after starting the season off hot. I think this week Herbert returns to his early season form with a 300+ yard, 4+ touchdown performance with no turnovers.

Top 3 RBs

Derrick Henry – Tennessee Titans

The Titans are going to need to control the clock if they want a shot at beating Green Bay on Sunday. Henry will be instrumental in that task as a 25+ touch game could result in 150+ yards and at least two touchdowns.

Nick Chubb – Cleveland Browns

The Browns will face the Jets this week and Chubb will look to lead the Browns to an eleventh win for the first time since 1994. I think Chubb has another 100+ yard game with a couple of touchdowns.

Miles Sanders – Philadelphia Eagles

In a huge divisional bout with the Cowboys, Miles Sanders will be leaned on heavily to lead the Eagles to a win. I expect him to back to his performance from two weeks ago where he finished with over 27 fantasy points.

Top 6 WRs

Keenan Allen – Los Angeles Chargers

Allen is Justin Herbert’s favorite target and the rapport will continue into Week 16. Allen is the surest handed receiver the Chargers have and I expect a 100+ yard game with at least one score.

Davante Adams – Green Bay Packers

Adams could have one of his best games of the year this week. The Packers are in for a tough matchup and in the tough games, the players with the best rapport tend to seek one another. Que the Rodgers to Adam connection a lot on Sunday.

Jalen Reagor – Philadelphia Eagles

I think Reagor can have a breakout performance this week. With Jalen Hurts now at the helm and moving the offense in the right direction, Reagor is going to be one of the major benefactors.

Cole Beasley – Buffalo Bills

While Stefon Diggs gets much of the love from the media, Beasley is the one that teams should have at the front of their mind. I think he’ll be targeted a good amount this week and break 100+ yards with a score or two.

Robby Anderson – Carolina Panthers

Anderson has had some quiet weeks since his top performances at the beginning of the year. I think he finds his groove again and has a big Sunday for the Panthers who will be without Christian McCaffrey once again.

Tyler Lockett – Seattle Seahawks

Lockett has had weeks this year where he scores 30+ points and then follows is with a sub 15 performance. While it’s going to be a tough matchup with the Rams, I see the Seahawks dialing it up deep for Lockett more than once.

Top 3 TEs

Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs

The best TE in football returns for another week of dominance. The Chiefs host the Falcons and will look to extend their number one seed spot this week. Look for Kelce to keep pace for the single-season TE yardage record.

Noah Fant – Denver Broncos

Fant is arguably the best target that Drew Lock has in Denver. He’s yet to have a big breakout performance, but I think this week would be the time to have it. On the road, a divisional opponent should be enough motivation for the TE to end the year strong.

Mark Andrews – Baltimore Ravens

Andrews is one of the best TEs in the league. He is Lamar Jackson‘s security blanket, but also a weapon that can make downfield catches. A tough matchup this week with the Giants will test his ability to surpass the 100+ mark, but I think he can make it happen.

Top 3 Kickers

Greg Zuerlein – Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys will be in a fight for the divisional crown this week. I think Zuerlein will be called on frequently to score this week.

Nick Folk – New England Patriots

Folk should be called on often this week as I think the Patriots offense won’t be able to find the end zone as much as they might think they can.

Randy Bullock – Cincinnati Bengals

After last week’s performance, the Bengals’ offense looked like they can move the ball. This week should be relatively the same, but Bullock should get his fair share of opportunities to boot some through.

Top 3 Def/STs

Buffalo Bills

I expect the Bills this week to impose their will on a Patriots team that is ready to book their trips to Cabo.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns, though playing the Jets, will have to be on their A-game as the Jets players haven’t given up on their season.

Chicago Bears

The Bears should handle the Jaguars well this week as they need a definitive win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
