The playoff push is upon us in both fantasy football and real football. This is where your decisions count most, such as deciding to bench your perennial starter due to a bad matchup in favor of a waiver wire target you’ve never heard of until now.

For a second straight week, I can’t provide in depth analysis due to finals week, but I named some guys for you to consider starting and sitting. I’ll be out of the country for Week 16, so fellow writer Eli Weiner will take care of next week for us. And if you’re in a league that plays Week 17, I’m sorry, but that’s bad management. Without further ado, here’s this week’s start/sit advice and NFL score predictions.
