Fantasy Football Value Gem: Week 16

Fantasy Football Value Gem:

Here are a few options to consider if you need to fill out some roster spots at a low cost/player.

TE – Cameron Brate

Cost: $3,900

Season Stats: 56 catches, 648 yards, 7 TDs.  


The Bucs are facing the atrocious Saints defense this week and that alone represents opportunity. The game is in New Orleans as well and could be a shootout as many games there tend to be.  In the last four games Brate has 27 targets and 2 TDs.  We expect him to generate some nice action again this week.

QB – Matt Barkley

Cost: $5,000

Season Stats: 1,163 yards passing, 6 TDs, 7 INTs

Chicago faces a Redskins team at home that ranks 26th in the NFL in total passing defense.  The weather in Chicago for Saturday looks rather pleasant actually all things considered.  The Skins have surrendered the 5th most fantasy points to QBs over the last four weeks and are reeling here.  Matt Barkley has made some noise with his opportunity this year and has no reason not to be motivated to have a big game here to perhaps help his career options.  The Bears as well have nothing to lose with the season long over already so we look for them to sling it around and try to get a win.  Good value here at QB if you need that this week.

RB – Justin Forsett

Cost: $3,600

Season Stats: 22 catches, 323 yards, 4 TDs.  

The Denver Broncos are desperate at the RB position. We don’t see Forsett as any kind of savior but he could get 15+ touches this week.  After losing a key LB to injury the Chiefs defense is close to falling apart.  Forsett has shown some signs of productivity and has gotten more action lately.  He represents very solid value here at this price and in this situation.
