For our final week of Sit ’em Down, we hope to rebound off a bad 1-2 week sixteen, and a poor second half in general, leaving us with a 45-55 on the season. Don’t forget to check out our Start ’em Up for this week, for those still playing in ESPN championships and those hoping for one more good week on the daily fantasy sites. With that, we begin:

QB- Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets (Fanduel Price- $7400, DraftKings Price- $5300)

The Bills are hoping to play spoiler to Rex Ryan’s former team, as they take on the Jets, who can make the playoffs with a win in Buffalo. Taylor has been one of the more surprising signal-callers in the league this season, as the former sixth round pick of Baltimore has shown himself to be a threat as both a passer and a runner. But those counting on him this week are going to be disappointed, as the Jets defense should be primed for a big game against Taylor, who they held to a mere 158 passing yards and only 12 rushing yards in week ten, and are one of the best defenses in the league at limiting fantasy points from opposing quarterbacks in general. Expect another dude from Taylor, and a Jets win as they make the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

RB- Darren McFadden, Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins (FD- $7200, DK- $4900)

As bad of a year as it has been for the Cowboys, the lone bright spot has been the reinvigorated McFadden, who took over the starting job in week seven (after Joe Randle was released and Lance Dunbar was injured), and made himself look like he should have been the starter all along, with 868 yards over the last ten games, and five games over 100 yards for his best season since his third season in the league in 2010. But this week, he should disappoint against a Washington defense looking to prove it can win on the road, and one that hasn’t allowed a 100 yard rusher in its last five games, while also holding McFadden to a mere eight fantasy points in week thirteen. Don’t trust him this week.

WR- Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears (FD- $7900, DK- $6900)

Megatron came back to life last week after two down games where he was hampered by an ankle injury, but I wouldn’t be expecting that trend to continue this week against the Bears in Chicago. The Bears have been solid in the secondary, allowing the seventh fewest fantasy points to receivers this season, and have not allowed any receiver to top 100 yards in a game since they went to Detroit in week six and allowed 272 yards combined to Lance Moore and some guy named Calvin Johnson. Don’t expect a repeat this week.
