Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em Week 16: Andre Johnson, Knowshon Moreno May Not Be Good Options For Sunday

In Sunday's Houston Texans-Denver Broncos contest, fantasy owners will have several options to go with if they want to take the risk of playing guys who may be limited due to injury. Here are some of the players who owners should start, sit or make a game-time decision on:

Start

Brandon Lloyd, WR, Denver - With the exception of Kyle Orton's last two starts, Lloyd has been nails for fantasy owners over the second half of the season. Tebow will need to rely on Lloyd over the last two games, and against the Texans on Sunday Lloyd faces the worst pass defense in the league.

Arian Foster, RB, Houston - Foster has been a stud all season long, and going up against Denver's weak rush defense will give him plenty of opportunities to put up fantasy points.

Sit If You Have A Good Option Earlier In The Day

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Denver - Moreno practiced on both Thursday and Friday, allowing interim coach Eric Studesville to be hopeful that he can play on Sunday. However, his participation was limited both days due to a rib injury incurred last weekend. Play it safe and go with another option in an early game if possible.

Andre Johnson, WR, Houston - Johnson is undoubtedly one of the most talented players in this match-up--if he plays. He is listed as questionable due to an ankle injury. Like Moreno, if there is a solid option during the early games, owners should sit Johnson.

Sit

Denver Broncos D/ST - This is an obvious one, and if one has been starting them at all this season then one's team is likely not in the playoffs this weekend.
