Running Back

Kenneth Dixon – Ravens: Dixon played just 15 offensive snaps last week after playing 42 in Week 14, however, he found scored his first rushing touchdown of the season. The Ravens will continue to give him opportunities and in Week 16, the Ravens take on the Steelers who are yielding the fourth most fantasy points per game to running backs.

Ty Montgomery – Packers: Montgomery had a huge game against the Bears in Week 15 as he rushed for 162 yards on 16 carries and scored two touchdowns, while playing in 83 percent of the snaps. He has now scored in back-to-back games and has totaled 249 yards in those games. It appears as if he has taken over the running back duties for the Packers and needs to be owned.

Others to consider: Kenneth Farrow – Chargers, Dwayne Washington – Lions, Justin Forsett - Broncos

Wide Receiver

Dontrelle Inman – Chargers: Since Week 8, Inman is averaging 4.9 receptions, 7.3 targets, and 68.3 receiving yards per game and has scored three touchdowns. In Week 16, he faces off against the Browns who are giving up 152.9 receiving yards per game and have surrendered 17 receiving touchdowns to opposing wide outs. Considering the injuries to the Chargers receiving corps, Inman could be in for a heavy workload in a favorable matchup.

Kenny Stills – Dolphins: Still is a very volatile receiver, but he has scored four touchdowns in the last six games, averaging six targets per game during that stretch and has scored in consecutive weeks. If you need help at wide receiver, Stills could be of help. Just keep in mind that he is hit or miss.

Others to consider: Robby Anderson – Jets, Tyler Lockett – Seahawks, Cameron Meredith – Bears, Malcolm Mitchell – Patriots, Michael Floyd - Patriots

Tight End

Charles Clay – Bills: Clay has scored a touchdown in two straight weeks, while averaging 6.5 targets per game during that stretch. He looks to carry the momentum over into Week 16 against the Dolphins who have allowed an average of 7.4 receptions and 78.6 receiving yards per game over their last five, giving up five touchdowns during that span. Clay could be helpful for those hurting at tight in their fantasy playoffs and/or championships.

Others to consider: Hunter Henry – Chargers, Jack Doyle – Colts, Ryan Griffin - Texans
