Start of the week: Leonard Fournette vs Detroit Lions
Last week, with the backfield to himself, Fournette found the end zone twice and finished with 21.5 (PPR) points on 19 touches. This week, not only will he have the backfield to himself again, but he also gets the best matchup you could ask for as he takes on a Lions team that you could literally write a book using all the stats of how generous they are to RB's this season. Some of those stats include most total TD’s allowed to RBs (25, most rushing, as well as most receiving... six more than the next team), they have allowed an RB to finish with the first or second-most points in six different weeks this season (including last week) AND unsurprisingly the most fantasy points overall to the position... you know what? You get the point. Start him.

Sit of the Week: Wayne Gallman vs Baltimore Ravens
Gallman's seven week streak of double-digit fantasy points came to a screeching halt last week as he managed an abysmal 2.9 (PPR) points in week 15. His touches, yards, and fantasy points have now gone down for three consecutive weeks. He has also failed to find the end-zone during this span. During his run of fantasy reliability (weeks 7-12) a whopping 44 percent of Gallman's points came from TD's. I don't see how you can feel comfortable rolling with him against a stout Ravens front that is tied for the second-least total TD's allowed to RB's this season. Even with a modest projection of just 10.0 points this week, it's gonna be a no from me dawg.
