WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Will Fuller playing Saturday in Week 16?UPDATE: Fuller is officially ACTIVE. Despite getting in limited practices all week, Fuller (hamstring) was listed as “questionable” on the Texans final injury report ahead of Saturday’s game at Tampa Bay. SATURDAY DFS: DraftKings main slate lineup | Showdown lineupsFuller returned in Week 15 after a one-week absence, catching five-of-seven targets for 61 yards. The Bucs allow the most fantasy points per game to WRs, so this is a must-start spot for Fuller, who doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing this game. If he is a surprise scratch, Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee would get bumps in value, with Stills slotting in as a WR2/3 and Coutee as a deep-league FLEX. WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Carlos Hyde playing Week 16?UPDATE: Hyde is officially ACTIVE.  Hyde (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is “questionable” for Saturday’s game against the Buccaneers.MORE WEEK 16: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emThere doesn’t seem to be any reason to be worried about Hyde suiting up, but he is facing the league’s top run defense. Volume and TD-upside stills gives him FLEX value, but Hyde shouldn’t be counted on for much this week.last_img read more
