It’s finally here: The Super Bowl of fantasy football often takes place in Week 16 of the regular season, as many teams are resting their key players in Week 17 in hopes of making a deep-run in the NFL playoffs.
Now, here the players who could ultimately make-or-break your team in the fantasy football championship round.

Jaguars RB Jordan Todman
Yes, the above photo is of Todman hauling in a pass with wide receiver-like skills vs. the Houston Texans two weeks ago. The 23-year-old Todman is becoming more of featured-weapon in the Jaguars offense as the after spending two years on practice squads and gameday inactive designations.
But in Week 15, he got the nod with Maurice Jones-Drew recovering from a strained hamstring. Against the Buffalo Bills, Todman carried the ball 25 times for 109 yards and added 44 receiving yards on four receptions.
With Jones-Drew likely out again this week, Todman is in line to start vs. the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee is allowing 20.5 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs and the fact that he’ll be a starting RB against a bad run defense makes him a worthy flex play.
Start Todman vs. the Titans.
