Fantasy Football Matchup Analyzer: Week 16

This tool is not meant to be a replacement for our weekly player rankings, although matchups are taken into consideration for those as well. You shouldn't bench a stud player who has a difficult matchup or automatically start a fantasy backup who has an easy matchup. It's meant to be a helpful tool when deciding between two closely ranked players. The matchups are graded on how many fantasy points the opposing team surrendered to this position on average.
