Best NFL DFS Week 16 Plays


Get the best NFL DFS Week 16 plays at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST. We analyze all price points to come up with the best stacks, studs, value plays and bargain bin sleepers to target at DK and FD.

In Week 15, we hit on the QB2 (Brock Purdy), QB7 and QB8. I missed at RB, only hitting on the RB10. At WR, I hit on the WR2 (Terry McLaurin), WR8, WR10 and WR11. I also hit on the TE2 (Trey McBride). I had the top two DSTs (Dolphins and Bears) as well. Apart from RB, it was  a great week.

There are nine games on the main slate this week, as games are spread out for the holidays.

Let’s uncover the best NFL DFS Week 16 plays.

Best Stacks for NFL DFS Week 16

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 16 stacks:

  • Justin Fields ($7.1K DK / $8.3K FD) and DJ Moore ($6.9K DK / $8.2K FD)

Fields has a great NFL DFS Week 16 matchup against the Cardinals. Fields is averaging 19 FPPG (DK) and 13.8 FPPG (FD). He’s coming off a tough game against the Browns. The Cardinals are allowing 219.3 PYPG (13th) and 139.6 RYPG (31st). Fields should produce through the air and on the ground.

Moore has put up respectable numbers this season. He’s averaging 18.1 FPPG (DK) and 14.3 FPPG (FD). He has had 8+ targets in each of his last five games. Arizona allow 26.9 PPG (31st). The Bears offense should have a big game. Fields could easily throw for 200+ yards and rush for 100+ yards.

  • Baker Mayfield ($6K DK / $7.3K FD) and Mike Evans ($7.6K DK / $8.7K FD)

Mayfield is coming off his best game of the season. He scored 33.04 FPs (DK) and 29.04 FPs (FD) last week against the Packers. He’s averaging 17.8 FPPG (DK) and 17.1 FPPG (FD) this season. He’ll have the opportunity to score 30+ FPs again, as the Jaguars are allowing 256.6 PYPG (29th).

Evans is in line for a ceiling game against this secondary. Evans is averaging 17.8 FPPG (DK) and 14.8 FPPG (FD) this season. He has had over 30 FPs twice on DK this season. The Jaguars are allowing 1.6 passing touchdowns per game (26th). Evans has a touchdown in five of his last six games.

Both of these NFL DFS Week 16 stacks will provide lots of salary left to fill out your roster.

Best Studs for NFL DFS Week 16

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 16 studs at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST:

  • QB: Jared Goff ($6.9K DK / $7.8K FD)

Goff just scored 31.12 FPs on DK and FD last week, as he had five passing TDs against Denver. Goff has thrown multiple passing TDs in five of his last six games, so he has a nice floor for NFL DFS Week 16. He gets the Vikings this week, who are allowing 224.0 PYPG (17th). Goff will put up big numbers.

Potential Stack: Amon-Ra St. Brown ($8.2K DK / $8.6K FD)

  • RB: Raheem Mostert ($7.3K DK / $8.8K FD)

Mostert has been a touchdown machine this season. He leads the league with 18 rushing TDs. Mostert has scored two rushing TDs in three of his last four games. He hasn’t been getting huge yardage and he has lost touches to De’Von Achane, but he’s still a great NFL DFS Week 16 option at RB.

  • WR: Justin Jefferson ($8.1K DK / $9.2K FD)

Jefferson has shaken off the injury rust and this could be the week he explodes. Jefferson caught seven of ten targets last week for 84 yards, but he failed to find the end zone. The Lions are allowing 225.0 PYPG (18th) and 1.6 passing TDs per game (25th). Jefferson could be the #1 WR in NFL DFS Week 16.

  • TE: Trey McBride ($5.7K DK / $7K FD)

McBride has performed well for this season and I’m backing him again for NFL DFS Week 16. McBride has scored 20+ FPs in three of his last five games on DK. His volume is through the roof. He has had 9+ targets in four of his last five games. The Bears are allowing 239.2 PYPG (26th) this season.

  • DST: Indianapolis Colts ($3.8K DK / $4.5K FD)

The Colts DST has been on a solid run. They’ve scored 11+ FPs in five of their last six games. They have had 4+ sacks in five of their last six games as well. They have scored a defensive TD in two of their last three games. The Falcons have turned the football over 21 times this season (T21).

Best Value Plays for NFL DFS Week 16

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 16 value plays at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST:

  • QB: Joe Flacco ($5.5K DK / $7.1K FD)

Flacco has been playing great considering he just got off the couch a few weeks ago. He’s averaging 21.8 FPPG (DK) and 19.5 FPPG (FD). He has thrown multiple TD passes in all three of his starts. He has also thrown for 300+ yards in his last two games. The Texans are allowing 239.1 PYPG (25th).

Potential Stack: Amari Cooper ($6.4K DK / $7.5K FD)

  • RB: Devin Singletary ($5.5K DK / $6.2K FD)

Singletary has seemingly taken over RB1 duties for the Texans. He had 26 carries last week for 121 yards and he added four receptions for 49 yards. Dameon Pierce had one carry last week. If that type of touch share continues, Singltary is a great value play for NFL DFS Week 16 against the Browns.

  • WR: Garrett Wilson ($5.8K DK / $7K FD)

Wilson has been boom or bust due to the QB play on the Jets. In Week 14, Wilson had nine catches for 108 yards. Last week, he had four receptions for 29 yards. Zach Wilson or Trevor Siemian could start for the Jets, but I like Wilson either way. The Commanders allow a league-worst 264.8 PYPG.

  • TE: Tucker Kraft ($3.7K DK / $5.3K FD)

If Luke Musgrave is ruled out again, Kraft is offering great value at TE. Kraft scored 15.7 FPs (DK) and 13.7 FPs (FD) last week, as he found the end zone. He has four receptions in each of his last two games. The Panthers are strong against the pass (173.7 PYPG – 3rd), but Kraft doesn’t need a lot to hit value.

  • DST: Tennessee Titans ($2.6K DK / $4.2K FD)

The Titans DST is averaging 6.4 FPPG, but they’ve scored 8.0+ FPs in each of their last four games. The Seahawks have been struggling lately and the Titans are at home. The Titans have 3+ sacks in their last four games. If they get pressure on the QB, it can lead to turnovers and more NFL DFS Week 16 points.

Best Bargain Bin Sleepers for NFL DFS Week 16

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 16 bargain sleepers (one RB and one WR):

  • RB: Tyler Allgeier ($4.6K DK / $5.7K FD)

Allgeier had twice as many carries (14 vs. 7) than Bijan Robinson last week. Allgeier is still getting a lot of touches for the Falcons and you never know when he can break off a big play. The Colts are allowing 127.4 RYPG (26th). Allgeier could exceed value in NFL DFS Week 16 action by scoring a touchdown.

  • WR: Josh Reynolds ($3.3K DK / $5.5K FD)

Reynolds price just keeps dropping, as his volume has dipped since the start of the season. He scored double-digit FPs in Week 14, as he found the end zone. At this price, if he hits double-digits, we’ll be in good shape. A Goff and Reynolds stack could work well if you can’t afford St. Brown with Goff.
