Week 16 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 30 Quarterbacks

Although he threw his second interception of the season, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had another strong fantasy performance in Week 15.

Foles threw for a career-high 428 yards and three touchdowns and now has a 23:2 TD-to-INT ratio on the season. Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson had nearly half of those yards as he finished with a season-high 195 yards.

In addition, Foles ran five times for a team-high 41 yards. On the season, Foles has 49 carries for 213 yards and three touchdowns.

Since his record-tying seven-TD performance against the Raiders six weeeks ago, Foles now scored a minimum of 19 fantasy points in six consecutive games.

Tannehill has three straight games with 20-plus fantasy points

Over the past four weeks, Dolphins second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill has had his best four fantasy performances of the season.

Even better, his fantasy output has increased each week with 17, 21, 23 and 24 points, respectively.

Tannehill has thrown multiple touchdowns in each of his past three games and has at least 310 passing yards in three of his past four games.

Last year, Tannehill threw more interceptions (13) than touchdowns (12). So far this year, he has a 23:14 TD-to-INT ratio. Over the past six games, he has thrown 12 touchdowns to five interceptions.

In his first matchup against the Bills this season, Tannehill completed a season-low 51.4 percent of his pass attempts for only 194 yards, but he did throw three touchdowns in that game.

Cousins could decide plenty of fantasy championships

With Robert Griffin III resting up for the offseason, it was fellow second-year quarterback Kirk Cousins under center for the Redskins in Week 15.

Like in his only other career start, Cousins threw for more than 300 yards and had multiple touchdown passes.

A failed two-point conversion means the Redskins dropped to 3-11 on the year, but Cousins completed 29 of 45 pass attempts for a career-high 381 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Facing the league's most generous fantasy defense for quarterbacks this week, it's possible/likely that plenty of owners will rely on Cousins to lead them to a title.
