‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house every fantasy manager was stirring because of all the injuries and COVID-19 outbreaks across the league.

Maybe it’s not the night before Christmas just yet, but ideally your stockings have been hung by the chimney with care in hopes that my tiers would soon be there. (I’m done with that bit now.) Week 16 is looking chaotic yet again, just in time for your important fantasy playoff matchups! But fear not, my initial tiers are here to help you make any Thursday and Saturday start/sit decisions.

And if you’re looking for a win, you’ve come to the right place. As FantasyPros’ fifth-most accurate expert for Week 15, I’ve got you more than covered. Be sure to check back before Sunday’s games for my final tiers of the week or check my real-time rankings at any point here. With all the uncertainty this week especially, be sure to check those updated rankings before making any start/sit decisions.
