Kirk Cousins (WAS)--In his first start under center his Week 15 of last season, Cousins finished in the top 10 at his position, proving he can be a legitimate fantasy option down the stretch. In Sunday's loss to the Falcons, Cousins passed for 381 yards and two scores, totally 21 fantasy points in standard leagues. The Redskins will face off against the Cowboys in Week 16, who have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, after back-to-back games of surrendering four passing touchdowns. Those who have been rolling with the hot hand at the quarterback position will want to give Cousins strong consideration this week as he continue to prove he is good enough to be both a starter in the NFL and for fantasy purposes.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (TEN)--After a dismal performance in Week 14 against the Broncos (only eight fantasy points in standard leagues), Fitzpatrick got back on track on Sunday, throwing for four touchdowns in the Titans loss to the Cardinals. Despite consistent fantasy production since take over the starter gig, this was the first time this year that he had thrown for more than two touchdowns in a game. With the Jaguars on deck for Week 16, Fitzpatrick could be in line for another solid performance, considering the last time the two teams met resulted in his highest fantasy output prior to Week 15. Similar to Kirk Cousins, Fitzpatrick should really only be added if you played the matchups all season at the quarterback position, so I don't recommend using him over a struggling Matthew Stafford or even Jay Cutler, just to name a few.
