Fantasy Football: Start, sit advice for Packers-Vikings meeting in Week 16
Packers (START): The Green Bay D/ST is averaging 11.5 fantasy points over the past month. Yes, that’s the Packers I’m talking about. In the same span, Minnesota is allowing eight points per game to opposing defenses.
The Colts D/ST just posted 18 fantasy points on the road at Minnesota. I like the Packers as a strong streaming option this week. The Vikings have fallen off a cliff, and turned the ball over three times last week.
If you’re streaming defenses, Green Bay is worth a shot.
Vikings (SIT): Minnesota still ranks No. 3 among D/STs on the season, but have just 15 points total over the past four weeks. They posted -1.00 points against the Colts last week. That won’t cut it in the fantasy championship.
If you survived with the Vikings’ poor performance last week, now’s the time to move on. The Packers are allowing the fewest points to opposing defenses (1.50) over the past month.

The way both teams are playing, and the fact it’s at Lambeau, scares me off the Minnesota D/ST this week. You’ve relied on them this far, but now is the time to scan the waiver wire for a better option.
