Week 16 Choose or Lose: Wide Receivers

Welcome to the championship edition of choose or lose! Every roster move made this week will have an impact on whether you win a championship or walk away second guessing your every move with the runner-up trophy. Never fear though, we at Salute Magazine have done the work for you, and here are our picks for choose or lose wide receivers. On a side note, if you haven’t read our latest fantasy article on ways to prevent your opponent from winning the championship, click here.

Choose

Allen Robinson at New Orleans Saints

Robinson has at least one touchdown catch the last four weeks and he should have another big game this week against the Saints. He has put up big numbers this season and has 69 receptions for 1,141 yards and 13 touchdowns, and there is a chance that he is capable of eclipsing the 15 touchdown reception threshold this week.

Jeremy Maclin vs. Cleveland Browns

Maclin has scored four touchdowns over the last month and now faces a Browns’ defense that has given up 29 passing touchdowns in 2015. The Chiefs should be able to pour on the points against the Browns, and their defense is likely to shut down Johnny Manziel when the Browns have the ball. With the increased probability that the Chiefs’ defense forces several turnovers in this game, Maclin will have even more chances.

Lose

Larry Fitzgerald vs. Green Bay Packers

Fitzgerald has been overcome by the rest of the Cardinals’ receiving corps in the last several weeks and this game is set up to be no different. He hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 8 but he still might be worthy of a start in PPR leagues this week because of his 44 receptions the past six games.

A.J. Green at Denver Broncos

Green is questionable this week with a bruised back and is coming off of a one-reception game against the San Francisco 49ers. He and the rest of the Bengals are facing the NFL’s best pass defense in the Broncos, and with their backup quarterback. If you have been on the fence about starting Green this week, go ahead and sit him.

On the Bubble

Doug Baldwin vs. St. Louis Rams

Keep an eye on Baldwin’s status this week because he is dealing with a hamstring injury, and that is the only reason that he is on the bubble. He has scored 10 touchdowns in the last four games and should be starting against the Rams if his status is changed to probable, and you will have until Sunday afternoon to decide.
