The Super Bowl week is here in fantasy football Week 16 so let's check out the last batch of key pickups in order to clinch your league title.

Tyler Eifert:  With Jermaine Gresham hobbled by a hip injury, Eifert becomes a key player in the Bengals offense.  Once Gresham went out injured last week, Eifert caught a touchdown pass as he was much more involved in the offense.  The Notre Dame product has top notch receiving skills and he is set up for a big game due to his improved standing.

Jordan Todman:  We are a week late on this but with Maurice Jones-Drew still hobbled with a bum hamstring, Todman has the chance to build on his terrific Week 15 performance when he ran for over 100 yards and caught four balls out of the backfield.  In addition, Todman's big finish is likely going to result in MJD being cut loose by the team before next season.

San Diego Defense:  The Oakland Raiders turned the ball over 7 times against a reeling Kansas City Chiefs defense last week so the San Diego D is a must play this week. 

Matt Flynn:  Flynn has taken the grand tour around the NFL this season but the guy seems to fit naturally into the Green Bay offense as evidenced by the four TD's he tossed last week. This is strictly for two QB formats.

Owen Daniels:  Daniels could actually make it back this week just as Garrett Graham is possibly going to sit out with a bum hamstring.  The Texans have always emphasized the tight end and Daniels is a well-proven commodity.

Dennis Johnson:  Ben Tate is iffy for Week 16 after re-injuring his ribs last week.  Johnson has shown flashes of ability when he has gotten onto the field and is worth a look as a RB 2 option this week. 

Reuben Randle:  With Victor Cruz out for the last two weeks of the season with a concussion and a knee injury, Randle steps into the starting lineup looking to build on his six receiving touchdowns.  Randle has shown the ability to get down the field and the Giants have no reason not to air it out since they are out of the playoff race.

There you have it.  Good luck for all who are in the Super Bowl game this week.  Let us know how it goes.
