Fantasy Football Week 16 Dark Horse Sleeper: Jordan Todman
It’s crunch time. The fantasy football season is winding down with two weeks left of the NFL regular season. The fantasy championships are just out of reach. You’re looking at your lineup, thinking about who to start, sit or add off the waiver wire. If you made it this far, odds are your lineup is set. However, if you need to make one final move to get your complete team, then add Jordan Todman.
The Jacksonville Jaguars backup filled in for Maurice Jones-Drew last week, who was out due to a hamstring injury. Todman had 25 carries for 109 yards and four receptions for 44 yards against the Buffalo Bills. The Jaguars are no doubt looking to the future and Todman is a good piece to the puzzle. Denard Robinson saw some action as well, but a late-game fumble cost him playing time.
With no Cecil Shorts or Justin Blackmon, Todman has become an integral part of the offense. If Jones-Drew remains out for Week 16, which is very possible, Todman will be the starter again. Head coach Gus Bradley said Jones-Drew looked better on Monday, but he will have further information on Wednesday afternoon.
The Jaguars take on the Tennessee Titans this Sunday. The Titans rank 30th against the run, allowing 18 rushing touchdowns and 21.4 fantasy points to opposing running backs. I like this matchup for Todman more than the matchups for Zac Stacy, Rashard Mendenhall, Andre Ellington and Steven Jackson, all of whom (except for Ellington) owned in over 90 percent of leagues.
Todman is currently owned in 3.1 percent of ESPN.com leagues. As a late-season addition, Todman is worth the waiver claim.
