David Johnson has stepped into a starring role at the perfect time for the Cardinals ... and for his fantasy owners. Who else tops the Week 16 rankings?
Every fantasy season, a hero is born in the playoffs. This year, that hero resides in the desert.
Sure, Cam Newton is putting the bow on a fantasy MVP season with a playoff performance that has almost certainly carried his owners to the championship, but we already knew he was great. David Johnson, however, is doing the same for his owners, while simultaneously setting himself up to be a consensus first-round pick in 2016 drafts. He is our No. 1 running back for Week 16 and just might prove to be the key to winning a fantasy championship this year.
Who else will leave a gift or two under their owners’ trees this week? Who might leave nothing behind but a lump of coal and a dud of a performance in championship week? Find out in our Week 16 positional rankings.
