Week 15 marked Mile High Report's third week of FanDuel leagues in 2014, and the league was full yet again, with 44 contestants getting a re-do at their fantasy football season. If you lost in last week's fantasy football semi-finals, or if you participated in the league last week and missed out on the cash prizes, we've got another chance for you. Week 16's league will yet again feature 44 teams, competing for a chance at $200 worth of cash prizes.
If you think you have what it takes to draft the perfect lineup and take home this week's cash prizes, join the league here.
Last week's winner was coletrain3193, who rode the performances of Le'Veon Bell, Odell Beckham Jr., and Derek Anderson (?) on the way to a total of 145.18 points. Week 15's winner received a solid performance from both Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos and the Chiefs D/ST in their match-up against the Raiders, also aiding him in his eventual victory. The winning team from Week 15 looked like this:
My team fell on the 0-point efforts from Jordan Matthews, Donte Moncrief, and Robbie Gould, finishing a dismal 42nd of 44 teams. Since last week's strategy of not posting my team was of no help to my fortunes, I'll give you all a glimpse at this week's team, since it doesn't seem to matter one way or the other. My team this week will feature the following lineup:
For those MHR readers looking for hints on which Broncos to target and avoid, here are the Week 16 Broncos tips:
1. The odds against Peyton Manning are nowhere near favourable, avoid is high price-tag. Manning is battling a thigh injury, has looked less than himself statistically for three weeks in a row, and he's set to battle one of the best defences against fantasy QBs in 2014. The Cincinnati Bengals have allowed the fourth-fewest points per game to opposing QBs, ranked right behind the Buffalo Bills, who stifled Manning two weeks ago. Despite all of the odds against him, Manning still has a price-tag of $9600, making him more expensive than all but three other quarterbacks in Week 16.
2. CJ Anderson is worth the hefty price-tag. Anderson is facing a Bengals defense which has allowed an average of 23.4 points to opposing defences over the last three weeks, the 6th-most in the league in that time period. Anderson should continue to see production based on volume alone, and should be able to find the end-zone for at least one score in the game. Look for the young Broncos back to put up a solid day, and live up to the $7800 price tag.
