HOT + NOT For Week 16 Fantasy Football

Hot and Not – Week 16

Each week, Dave B will compile a list of Hot and Not Hot players based on their past performances and future matchups.


It is hard to believe that Week 16 is almost here and that another Fantasy season is almost in the books. I guess it is time to spend some time with your families! If you are still in the hunt for your Fantasy crown, chances are that you have some Hot players on your team. If you are playing for pride alone, chances are that you own a few of the Not Hot players on Dave B’s Hot and Not – Week 16 list.

So who can you depend on for Championship week and who is untrustworthy during the most important week of the Fantasy season? It is all broken down below in this week’s Hot and Not list.



Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – Brees completed 32 of his 40 passes for 412 yards and five touchdowns during the Saints’ 42-20 rout of Minnesota on Sunday. In pursuit of the NFL record books he has now thrown a touchdown pass in 41 consecutive games to inch closer to the all-time record held by Johnny Unitas (47). Brees is also only 304 yards shy of surpassing Dan Marino’s single-season passing yards mark (5,084). He has passed for over 300 yards 12 times this season – HOT as HELL!

Tom Brady – New England Patriots – Tom Brady threw for 300-plus yards for the ninth time this season in Week 15 against the Broncos. He completed 23 of 34 passes for 320 yards with two touchdowns. He also recorded a rushing touchdown in the 41-23 win. In his last six games he has 15 touchdowns and just one interception!

Tony Romo – Dallas Cowboys – Romo threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score Saturday night, helping the first-place Cowboys beat the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-15.Romo has 1936 yards passing, 18 touchdowns and only two interceptions in his last seven games.

Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions – Stafford has passed for over 391 yards in two of his last three games and with his fourth quarter comeback in Oakland last week, there is no way you can’t consider Stafford Hot. He has seven touchdowns and only one interception in his last three games.


Ray Rice – Baltimore Ravens – Rice gained 57 yards on 10 carries and also caught nine passes for 55 yards in the 34-14 loss against the Chargers. He has been a combined yardage machine all season and now gets to face a Cleveland Browns team that he went for 204 yards against in Week 13 – Hot!

LeSean McCoy – Philadelphia Eagles – McCoy is second in the NFL with 1,274 rushing yards, while adding 310 receiving yards. He has 19 combined touchdowns – 19! LeSean is money in the Fantasy bank and is certainly Hot!

Maurice Jones-Drew – Jacksonville Jaguars – MJD has been carrying the Jags on his back! He has averaged around 100 yards per game in his last 6 (although he’s only gotten there twice) and has scored five times over that span. The Jags are going to ride MJD to the ground so he should remain Hot.

Reggie Bush – Miami Dolphins – Bush has been over 100 yards in his last three games culminating with a 203 yards effort in Week 15. He has six touchdowns in his last seven games and as is Hot as they come!


Steve Smith – Carolina Panthers – Smith is heating up again. After a rough patch, Smith is getting right at the best time for his owners. In his last two games, Smith has averaged 5.5 catches and 103 yards receiving with one total touchdown. With Tampa Bay next on the schedule, Smith is Hot again!

Roddy White – Atlanta Falcons – White caught 10 passes for 135 yards and two scores Thursday in a 41-14 rout of the Jags. In his last four weeks White has averaged 7.75 catches per game, 97.5 yards per game and he has five combined touchdowns – Hot! [ad-8469823]

Demaryius Thomas – Denver Broncos – Thomas is absolutely on fire – Tim Tebow’s favourite target by a country mile. In his last three games, Thomas has 338 yards and three touchdowns. Buffalo and Kansas City are on tap. It is safe to say that Thomas should remain Hot!

Honourable Mention: Laurent Robinson, Nate Washington

Not Hot


Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens – Flacco hasn’t been over 227 yards in his last four games. He has averaged 193 yards passing in those games has a total of five touchdowns and three interceptions – Not Hot.

Mark Sanchez – NY Jets – Sanchez’s best game in his last three came last week – 181 yards and two scores! He has averaged just 165 yards in those games, has five total touchdowns and two interceptions.

Josh Freeman – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – What happened to Josh Freeman? He sat out Week 13 with injury but in the last three he’s played, Freeman has averaged just 176 yards passing and has a combined 2 touchdowns and three interceptions – Not Hot!


Chris Johnson – Tennessee Titans – Johnson is back to the Not Hot column after a decent run. After consecutive 150+ yard games CJ2K has combined for 78 yards in his last two games combined. That’s more like the Chris Johnson we expect!

LeGarrette Blount – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Blount is on a sinking pirate ship at the moment. He had 21 yards rushing on Saturday night! In Week 13 he had 19 yards, Week 14 he had 74 and Week 15 – 21 yards. Blount is brutal and absolutely Not Hot!


Mike Williams – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Williams has been a bust all season but the last two weeks he’s been especially Not Hot. In Week 14 he had 3 catches for 35 yards and in Week 15 he was SHUT OUT! Williams is ice cold just like the rest of his team.

Anquan Boldin – Baltimore Ravens – Boldin has been held to two catches in two of the last three games and has not gone over the 70-yard mark since Week 9. He has just one touchdown over that span. The Ravens are going to run the ball against Cleveland making Boldin Not Hot!

DeSean Jackson – Philadelphia Eagles – Jackson’s best game in his last three was a Week 14 effort in which he caught four balls for 59 yards and a score. Sandwiched around that performance are a 4 catch 34 yard effort and a 2 catch 28 yard game – Not Hot!
