Armchair Quarterback - Week 15
Well folks, if you're reading this CONGRATS... means you're likely gearing up for your Super Bowl next week.  What I'd like to do here is discuss some players that will be bounce-back candidates in 2017.  Give y'all something to look forward to if you're NOT in the Super Bowl.  Good luck to those that are!

 
Quarterback

Eli Manning (NYG):  Manning will be 36 years old but will have one of the best weapons in the game (OBJ), a budding Robin to OBJ's Batman in Sterling Shepard, and Paul Perkins at his disposal from the backfield.  Manning is currently QB21 in typical QB scoring.  Figure he will jump up into at minimum the mid-teens next season. 

Running Back

Dion Lewis (NEP):  Lewis has spent most of the season on IR, recently to return to only about 8 ppg.  They've worked him in slowly, and actually put up 13.3 points this past week.  If he can return to 100% health (and no reason to think he can't), he will be the pass-catching back in one of the most potent offenses in the NFL.  Gronk will be iffy to return early next season, meaning that Lewis will potentially see even more targets.  Don't forget about this guy. 

Wide Receiver

Allen Hurns (JAC):  Both Allens (Hurns and Robinson) took major steps back in 2016, mainly due to the regression of QB Blake Bortles.  The Jags just fired their head coach, who should be considered as the major reason of Bortles' dip.  Robinson will likely be a bounce-back candidate himself, but figure that most fantasy owners will realize that and have him on their radar already as a buy-low candidate.  Instead, focus your attention to Hurns, who is presently WR75 (ouch) in PPR leagues.  Guys and gals, he was WR19 last season.  Grab him in the later rounds and watch him return to form.  Maybe not WR19, but he could be a solid WR2 if the offense gets back in gear.
 
Tight End

Jordan Cameron (MIA):  This is kind of a major dice roll, but the guy's ultra-talented and is currently on a team with a "TE-friendly / TE-whisperer" head coach.  Now, he's a free agent AND considering retirement, but if he decides to come back, the team would be crazy to not re-sign him.  With the development of Ryan Tannehill and the rest of the Dolphin offense, Cameron could really jump up in the TE rankings.  Something to watch over the course of the off-season for sure.
