This thread is for discussion of action on the field before, during, and after the first two games of Week 16: Green Bay-Minnesota (Thursday) and Kansas City-Oakland (Saturday). There will be a second thread for the Sunday afternoon games, and a third thread for the Christmas games.
Please ask your fantasy football start/bench and waiver wire questions in the discussion thread for Scramble for the Ball.
