If you’re still reading our 2012 fantasy football content, good for you. This means you’re still playing games of consequence this season, and that’s a good thing. (Or it means we’re locked into some co-dependent relationship that’s oddly functional. Okay, we can live with that, too.) You want to fight for every last point in any fantasy game, and it’s common for some sharp fantasy owners to play the one-week rental game with respect to defenses and kickers. These two positions always have good options floating around the waiver wire, in part because their week-to-week value is largely matchup-dependent. With that in mind, here is my 1.0 version of rankings at the rental spots in Week 16. Disagree with what’s here? You should, at least on some level. Disagreement is why we have a game in the first place. And given how well you’ve done to this point in the year, maybe you don’t need any outside help. But if you’re looking for a way to break a tie between options, allow me to flip the coin for you. General defense and kicker methodology : Whenever possible, ride with someone tied to a team that’s likely to win (the more lopsided, the better). Game flow is essential for these positions. Sure, sometimes the process seems good but the outcome is a Shark Sandwich (waving at you, Week 15 Lions), but over the long run this is a proven way to go about it . Seriously, it works. Make the jump and the ranks will follow. I’ll be tweaking this list as the week goes along, on the Yahoo! site and on Fantasy Pros as well.
