Fantasy Land: Studs and Duds, Week 16



    A two-time (soon-to-be three-time) champion in a hardcore keeper league, including some know-it-all media "experts", Adam Boedeker gives his fantasy expertise on a weekly basis.

    Stud of the Week

    Pierre Garcon, WAS, WR — Guess what? Any time a quarterback or a No. 1 wide receiver faces the Dallas Cowboys, they should be in your lineup. Garcon took kindly to the quarterback change in D.C. last week with Kirk Cousins throwing him the ball instead of Robert Griffin III, who was benched for the remainder of the season to protect his life. Cousins has proven to be a capable passer and should connect with Garcon on the regular against an awful Dallas secondary.

    Honorable mention:Jay Cutler, CHI (at PHI); Ben Roethlisberger, PIT (at GB); Chris Ivory, NYJ (vs. CLE); Delanie Walker, TEN (at JAC).

    Dud of the Week

    Andre Brown, NYG, RB — After storming out of the gates in his season debut back in Week 10, Brown has cooled considerably and isn't worth starting this week unless you just have no other options. The Detroit Lions are loaded up front defensively and have been one of the league's best rush defenses over the second half of the season. Start him at your own risk.

    Honorable mention:Rashard Mendenhall, ARI (at SEA); Steven Jackson, ATL (at SF); T.Y. Hilton, IND (at KC); Marques Colston, NO (at CAR).
