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.

It was all fun and games for fans of the Buffalo Bills last Sunday as they pounded the Dallas Cowboys at home, but it wasn't much fun for fantasy players who had Dalton Kincaid in their tight end slot.

While James Cook had a career day for the Bills, Kincaid didn't record a single fantasy point, catching no passes and being targeted just twice in the game. That should change this Saturday against the Chargers, who won't offer a lot of defensive resistance in this game.

The rookie Kincaid has had a solid season and had caught at least five passes in seven straight games prior to Sunday, which made his zero-catch effort a bit of a headscratcher.

The Chargers are allowing on average about 5.6 receptions for 58.8 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game to the tight end position this season. Last week, rookie tight end Michael Mayer scored a touchdown against them.

Look for Kincaid to at least hit these averages while also scoring a touchdown in this game.
