Week 16 xFP Leaders: 20 Pass-Catchers Who Will Win Your Title
For those of you who were lucky enough to stay alive and reach your fantasy championship games, you may be struggling to replace some studs. A week after losing Mike Evans, the Bucs also lost Chris Godwin who is a tough man to replace. The second-year WR was a breakout star and was carrying many teams to their titles. Luckily he was having a big day when going down so many of you may still be alive and competing. With that in mind lets take a look at this week’s xFP leaders.

Week 16 xFP Leaders
Last week was a mixed bag for the model, with top target Jarvis Landry putting up a dud as Cleveland’s offense sputtered. This week the top two players are Julio Jones and Michael Thomas both coming off massive target share games. I expect much of the same for the week ahead and see both of these studs having huge days.
George Kittle and Travis Kelce are the two best TEs in football and the model sees them as top-five overall plays this week. They are both essentially WRs in their respective offenses and matchup nightmares.
A.J. Brown finds himself in the top five this week as well and his recent performance has justified this. He is a star in the making and may already have vaulted himself into the upper half of WRs in the league. He should be in all lineups for this week. He has been a league winner.
The next five include several no-doubt starters but I will admit I am a bit surprised by the relatively low ranking for DeAndre Hopkins. The Texan has a dream matchup with Tampa Bay this week.
After that things get really interesting. Steven Sims takes over as the top projected Redskin WR and he also gets a dream matchup with the Giants. The speedster has shown good rapport with Dwayna Haskins and could be a solid flier for those who are desperate or a good option for DFS tournaments.
Robby Anderson has a tough matchup ahead but the deep threat has been solid for fantasy owners and should be started in most leagues. The talent is there and he always has had a rapport with Sam Darnold.
An interesting option outside of the top 20 is Danny Amendola who finds himself among the top 30 options this week after seeing a target bump since Marvin Jones went down.
Good luck to all of you in your finals matchups this week and I will be happy to answer any xFP based questions on Twitter.
