Fantasy start/sit advice, Week 16: Kenny Stills
The Saints receiver was solid in his last game. Is he worth the start in the fantasy finals?
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Kenny Stills has been solid starting opposite Marques Colston. He finished last week with five receptions for 67 yards. Stills was targeted seven times, which tied him with Jimmy Graham and Colston for the team lead. While there is plenty of room for Stills to improve in the consistency department, it’s encouraging to see him heavily involved in the game plan.
Stills has three touchdowns on the year and has topped the 100-yard receiving mark twice. With a 15 YPC average, Stills has established himself as a legit deep threat. As long as he continues to get plenty of looks from quarterback Drew Brees, Stills will remain in a good position to produce.
Fantasy Impact: At first glace, the Saints have a juicy matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Their secondary gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. However, Stills is likely to be matched up with outstanding cornerback Desmond Trufant, which limits his upside this week. He’s a low-end WR3.
