Tim's Takeaways: Week 16
Check back here every week to listen to Tim: analyze what we saw, discuss who's trending up or down, and jump to some wild conclusions.
Christian Watson is insane
In the past four weeks, Watson has delivered finishes of WR3, WR8, WR10, and WR8. He has at least 21.0 PPR points in four straight. He has eight TDs in that span.
What’s truly astounding is that he doesn’t have more than four catches in any of those games.
I don’t understand how he keeps doing it, but he does. Normally, based on volume, I would say he can’t keep it up. But you literally cannot sit this dude right now. He is what we in the biz refer to as a 'league-winner'.
This dude is a monster. A bonafide stud. An alpha WR1. My best friend. After setting a new career-high with 162 yards in week 13, Wilson now has at least 90 yards and 17 PPR points in four of his last five games.
Since Mike White took over (I still hate you Zach Wilson) Garrett is averaging 25.3 fantasy points per game.
His fantasy playoff schedule includes matchups with the Lions, Jaguars, and Seahawks. Moving forward, I don’t think it’s outrageous to call him a borderline WR1.
Curtains for Kamara?
For the second game in a row, the fourth time in his last five games, and the sixth time this season Kamara finished with single-digit PPR points in week 13. This time he delivered his worst game of the season (5.7 PPR points) finishing with just 37 yards on 14 touches.
It was the third time in his last four games he failed to top 50 total yards or 7.5 PPR points. He hasn’t just been bad, he has been horrible.
To add insult to injury, he has a bye in week 14. Depending on how you look at it, that might even be a good thing. Now you won’t have to look on in horror as you’re forced to start him.
If you failed to make playoffs, he is likely the reason. If you have, there is a reason for optimism. According to FantasyPros, he has the easiest remaining schedule for a RB. He faces Atlanta, Cleveland, and Philly in the fantasy playoffs. If you weathered the storm, you might just be rewarded for your suffering.
