The quarterback position has a number of questions for fantasy football entering Week 16 as C.J. Stroud is already being reported to likely be out this week due to a concussion while Jaguars' quarterback Trevor Lawrence has been added to the concussion protocol after their loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

However, when looking ahead to this week's slate of games, these are three quarterbacks that if are on your roster are must-starts.

3 must-start quarterbacks in fantasy football for Week 16

Josh Allen (vs. Los Angeles Chargers)

Last week was one of the worst games in Josh Allen's career as he threw for only 94 passing yards and attempted 15 passes. Thankfully, he did throw one touchdown pass and rush for another but the Buffalo Bills blew out the Cowboys and they didn't need much more from Allen.

However, this week the Bills are playing a Chargers defense that has really struggled, including allowing four touchdowns last week to Aidan O'Connell. It will be a big bounce back week for the Bills quarterback.

Justin Fields (vs. Arizona Cardinals)

Justin Fields didn't have a great week against the Cleveland Browns, which is understandable as most quarterbacks don't. However, this week the matchup is much more favorable against a Cardinals defense that has allowed the sixth most points to quarterbacks over the last four weeks.

What is worth noting is that over that span, they have allowed only eight rushing yards and no rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks. However, it is due to the quarterbacks they have played and not necessarily being great against the run as in fact they rank second to last in rushing yards allowed per game in the NFL.

This is a week where Justin Fields should have a huge game on the ground that will propel him into being a Top 12 option.

Dak Prescott (vs. Miami Dolphins)

Last week, was the worst game of the season for Dak Prescott but the Dallas Cowboys quarterback should bounce back this week on the road against the Miami Dolphins. Prior to this game against the Bills, Prescott finished in the Top 3 in six of the previous eight games in scoring for fantasy football.

This week, the game has a potential to be a high-scoring matchup between two of the top offenses in the league. The Cowboys are going to throw probably early and often in this game and Prescott should have more success in Week 16
