Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 16: Andre Brown should have a nice day

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Brown was held in check in Week 16, but will he turn it around to end this season?

New York Giants running back Andre Brown suffered a concussion near the end of Week 16's contest against the Detroit Lions and was taken off on a cart. The good news is that he was able to get some practice in this week and it seems like he could play.

The New York Giants have been a disappointment on offense this season. They were shut out two weeks ago and have lost three of their last five due mostly to quarterback Eli Manning not taking care of the football.

The lack of a passing game has put the clamps on running back Andre Brown. Over his last two games, he's averaged just 2.1 yards per carry. However, he's touched the ball 16.5 times per game over that span and is the featured back.

Fantasy impact: The Giants get a terrific matchup against the league's worst defense based on points per game allowed. The Washington Redskins are almost always a must-start opponent for backs and this week would be no different. Of course, he'll have to announced as active. The good news is the G-Men play in the early game, so fantasy owners can have their backup plans ready.
