If you are reading a daily fantasy football article for Week 16, you may have just hit the fantasy playoffs. But it can be improved, and this is what the Yahoo GPP lineup is here to try and accomplish. You may have been beaten by Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill, but now you can play them as part of a DFS stack.
Dalvin Cook’s injury was an overwhelming blow to the other decent lineup in Week 15. I got what I think was our first touchdown defense of the year when the Buccaneers got one for six. We also had the right concept for O.J. The use of Howard, though it does not pay huge dividends. There’s definitely a case to be made to get back to Howard well in Week 16 (though that should be on a plate Saturday).

NFL DFS Week 16: Yahoo GPP Line Options
QB Patrick Mahomes, Managers @ Bears ($ 34). The Bears are not intimidating enough to worry about when Mahomes is only the sixth highest QB on the plate and just played perhaps the best game of the season in a winter landscape.
RB Saquon Barkley, Giants @ Redskins ($ 29). Barkley showed some of his patented agility and power in Week 15 and led to the biggest fantasy day of the season. We will bank on the revolution by continuing to another nice matchup.
Seminar 16 Degrees PPR: Running Back Wide Receiver | Tight end
RB Kerryon Johnson, Lions @ Broncos ($ 15). Johnson (knee) needs to be activated from an injured reserve to operate this game, but it is likely that if it is, this is a great deal of talent to bet on a value value. If Johnson stays out, Wes Hills can come in here.
WR Tyreek Hill, Chiefs @ Bears ($ 29). There is no reason not to take the huge edge of Mahomes and Hill, regardless of the opponent.
WR Anthony Miller, Bears vs. Chiefs ($ 16). We’ll bet this game a little too, with a right-hander on the other side who has earned Mitchell Trubisky’s confidence. Miller will have many opportunities in this competition.
WR Greg Ward, Eagles vs. Cowboys ($ 12). Ward’s performance, without Alshon Jeffery (leg) and Nelson Agholor (knee) in Week 15, does not appear to have been fully captured by his honor here. If it can even repeat two-thirds of week 15 of its exit, it will return value.
TE Jacob Hllister, Seahawks vs. Cardinals ($ 19). Yes, this is chalk. But it’s also an honorable chalk in a position where it’s difficult to count players outside the top tier. These are not guaranteed points, but they are more guaranteed than we will get under the council.
FLEX Julio Jones, Falcons vs. Jaguars ($ 30). Jacksonville made Derek Carr’s receivers look good at times, and none of them is Julio Jones. He’s just as reliable as some of the top backs in finding his production almost every time on the field.
D / ST Indianapolis Colts vs. Panthers ($ 16). Kyle Allen had Andrew Siciliano of the NFL at RedZone, asking Will Grier to play all week 15 on Sunday. Any of these types would be okay as turnovers and sacks await Indy’s defense.
