5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 16

5 Up

#1 Keelan Cole (WR) Jacksonville Jaguars

He has 13 catches, 334 yards, and three touchdowns the past three weeks for a surging Jacksonville team. He seems to be the go-to target for big plays for Bortles and the Jaguars offense.

#2 Nick Foles (QB) Philadelphia Eagles

He just went for four passing touchdowns, but against the Giants. I would say that this will just be one game, but he plays the lowly Raiders’ secondary next week so expect another solid outing for Foles.

#3 Christian McCaffrey (RB) Carolina Panthers

A heavy workload saw fantasy dividends for McCaffrey this week against the Packers. This seems to becoming a habit as of late and I believe that continues against the Buccaneers as the Panthers are on a roll on the field.

#4 Kenyan Drake (RB) Miami Dolphins

Three straight weeks of 20+ points in PPR formats makes Drake a must-have for the rest of the season. Miami’s next two weeks will see Kansas City and Buffalo where they will try and play playoff ruin-er for those two teams.

#5 Jimmy Garoppolo (QB) San Francisco 49ers

The connection and matching of Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan seems to be a very good match. Two straight games of over 300-yards passing. The 49ers have nothing to lose and are playing well because of it.
