Week 16: Start 'Em

Though these players might have been riding your fantasy bench the last few weeks, we recommend you start them this week. This week's picks include Rex Grossman, Matt Moore, Lance Ball, Kahlil Bell, and LeGarrette Blount.

Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams, that is the debate the Panthers have each week (as do many fantasy owners). Williams has been the one to score the touchdowns the past two weeks; three weeks ago vs. the Bucs' weak defense, Stewart rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown and shouldn't have a problem doing that again vs. the Bucs this week. Stewart's value is higher in PPR leagues because he averages more than 3 receptions per game. If you need help at RB2 or flex, Stewart might be able to be that help.

If there is one game Plaxico Burress will get up for and do his best to put up a big game, it will be week 16 vs. his former team -- the New York Giants. This will be a huge game; the loser's season will be basically done, so there will be a lot on the line. Burress' comeback season hasn't gone exactly like he would have wanted, as he struggled like the Jets to be consistent week in and week out. With so much on the line for his team and for it to be against the Giants, you can bet Plax will do everything he can to make sure his season isn't over, but that the Giants' season is. Plax has scored 8 touchdowns this season, as he is still a big target when his team gets closer to the end zone. With the Giants fielding the 4th worst pass defense, don't be surprised if Plax gets into the end zone again this week. Start him as a flex or even a WR3 in standard leagues.
