Sit: Wan'Dale Robinson, WR (New York Giants)

The recommendation to sit wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson goes hand in hand with the reasoning to avoid the Philly defense. The second-year pro has failed to log double-digit PPR Fantasy points in nine of his 12 games played. He is averaging a pedestrian 30.8 yards on 3.8 receptions per contest.

Those are not marks of someone who should be trusted in a Fantasy semifinals matchup, even though the Eagles struggle to cover shifty wideouts. Robinson has seen just one red zone target over the last five weeks and is not the deep threat that a speedy teammate like Darius Slayton is.

Robinson's unlikelihood to score a touchdown puts a major damper on any upside he has in Week 16. There are wide receivers rostered in under 30% of ESPN leagues and in much better spots that can be added off the waiver wire, instead. Producers like Joshua Palmer and Rashid Shaheed come to mind.
