The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 16 QBs

December 17, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

We’re coming down to the stretch run in fantasy football, and for those of you fortunate enough to still have something left to play for at this point in the season, congratulations. Here are this week’s fantasy QB Power rankings, as well as the weekly start rankings. At this point in the season, you pretty much have who you have, but for those who still can get to the waiver wire, there may be value remaining there to be found.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 16. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 16 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 16 lineup decisions.
