Week 16 Start Sit: 7 things to know about week 16 fantasy football!

Every single week, 300+ fantasy football players are using a lineup setting resource called the Heat Map to dominate their friends, set money-making DFS lineups, and cash in on player prop bets.

The Heat Map offers contextual analysis and expectations for every single player in every single game, every single week, so you know exactly what to expect from any player taking the field.

It's backed by 30+ hours of research per week, often leading me to interesting discoveries and nuggets that fantasy football players and bettors need to be aware of.

I share all of them in the Heat Map each week, but here are 7 interesting things to know before the week 16 fantasy football madness begins on Sunday morning!

By the way, if you want to give the Heat Map a try, I'm giving it away for just $1.99 this week!

🏈 In 2 games against the Arizona Cardinals this season, Christian McCaffrey handled 50 touches—including 12 catches on 13 targets—for 364(!) scrimmage yards, 7 touchdowns (!) and 90.4(!) PPR points.

🏈 Going into week 15, James Conner held the season high against the Dallas Cowboys, scoring 19.6 PPR points way back in week 3.

Yesterday, James Cook was the 1st RB to score 20 or more PPR points against Dallas this season, finishing with 36.1.

🏈 Over his first 10 games, Rashee Rice averaged 4.6 targets, 3.6 catches, 42.0 yards and 10.2 PPR points per game with 4 TDs.

Over his last 4 games, Rashee Rice is averaging 9.5 targets, 8.0 catches, 83.5 yards and 20.9 PPR points per game with 3 TDs.

🏈 Just 1 RB in 14 games has been able to score 20 or more PPR points against the Los Angeles Rams. His name is Christian McCaffrey—shocker—and it was way back in week 2.

🏈 After 14 games, running backs have carried the football 317 times against the Atlanta Falcons.

Not a single one of them has resulted in a touchdown.

🏈 In his first 4 games with Gardner Minshew, Josh Downs averaged 8.8 targets, 6.3 catches, 68.8 yards and 16.1 PPR points per game with 2 TDs. He scored 13 or more PPR points in all 4 of those games.

In his last 4 games with Minshew, Downs is averaging 6.0 targets, 3.5 catches, 27.0 yards and 6.2 PPR points per game with no TDs. He's scored fewer than 10 PPR points in each of the last 4 games.

🏈 The Lions are the only team in football that is not allowing at least 100 scrimmage yards per game to opposing running backs (96.64 per game to be exact).

By the way, if you want to give the Heat Map a try, I'm giving it away for just $1.99 this week!
