Week 16 NFL Fantasy Football Advice: There's No D In Broncos Or Texans

Whether you're playing for a league championship, a spot in the finals for those rare 17-week leagues, or some consolation game to determine final positioning, the fantasy football advice for Texans-Broncos is fairly simple and straight-forward.

The Broncos are 31st in the NFL by allowing 386.1 yards per game. They also allow a league worst 29.6 points per game. Meanwhile, the Texans are 30th in the NFL with 377.0 allowed YPG and 27.6 PPG allowed.

If you buy into the Football Outsiders metrics, the Broncos rank 32nd against the pass and 30th against the run while Houston is 31st against the pass.

I'd check the health of Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, and Knowshon Moreno on Sunday, but if you have a Denver or Houston starter, I'd go ahead and play them without much hesitation. Yes, I'd even start Tim Tebow since Houston has (a) given up two-or-more touchdowns to quarterbacks in 12 of their 14 games and (b) traditionally struggled against running quarterbacks.

The efenses for both teams are absolutely terrible and points will be had in the battle of efense (typos on purpose).
