Fantasy Football: Best bounce-back candidates at each position for Week 16

The fantasy football season is nearing its end and if you are still alive in your league, these players should be a lot better than they were last week.

RB: Bijan Robinson, Atlanta Falcons (vs. Indianapolis)

It has been a weird, up-and-down season for the Falcons' first-round pick (and the No.1 overall pick in dynasty league rookie drafts). Many fantasy owners put the blame for that on head coach Arthur Smith and his questionable offensive choices, but those fantasy players labeling Bijan Robinson as a "bust" need to seriously get a grip.

However, there is no doubt that he is coming off an incredibly bad game in which he rushed for just 11 yards on seven carries and had a lost fumble.

Against the Colts, he should find some more running room.

Indianapolis ranks No. 26 in the league in yards allowed on the ground per game this season. The Falcons' postseason hopes are quickly fading away so they will need to give the ball to their best offensive player as much as possible in this game (unless Smith is completely clueless) so look for Robinson to bounce back this week.
