MNF fantasy points projections to help you set your lineup

Need some last minute start/sit advice? Fantasy points projections can help, and we’ve got them for Week 16 Sunday Night Football.

The Packers and Vikings are still in the hunt for the NFC North title and will go all out. The Vikings are down their Top-2 running backs but have a strong third back in Mike Boone. The Vikings are favored by 5.5 points at home and have a strong run defense, which means we should see a lot of passing by Aaron Rodgers and company.

Matchups are crucial, but it helps to see what the analytics are saying about potential performances. Looking at ESPN fantasy projections, there are plenty of start/sit decisions to consider for both teams.

The Rodgers-Davante Adams connection has the highest upside accoriding to the projections while the Kirk Cousins-Adam Thielen duo leads the way for the Vikings. Thankfully we know that Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison are out, which means we can play Boone in a good matchup against the Packers poor run defense.

With a lot on the line, these two teams should both be primed for this prime time matchup. I expect plenty of points to be spilled tonight.
