Week 16 composite rankings

It’s money making championship time for most of you, which means that studs should be played without any second guessing, and hopefully a week from now I won’t be able to make a list of the 10 players who ruined your championship bid. Those guys are the worst.

But what should you do beyond those studs? There are numbers for that, and rankings. Lots of rankings.

Compiled by Devang Desai, we went extra deep for this week’s championship rankings while tapping into the minds of Michael Fabiano and Adam Rank from NFL.com, and Matthew Berry and Eric Karabell from ESPN.

Immediately we learn that Cam Newton should finish with at least 654 total yards Sunday against the Raiders.
