The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 16 WRs

December 17, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

And here are the Fantasy Flavor Wide Receiver Power Rankings for week 16 too. These are the last ones that are going up today, but the rest will be up tomorrow in plenty of time to help with your decisions in the Thursday night match ups. If you’re still playing with interest in week 16, then I certainly don’t need to remind you of the magnitude of this week’s decisions.

 

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.
