Which battles should be catching your eye for Week 16 of the fantasy football slate?

Key Matchup Reason
Larry Johnson, RB, CIN vs. Kansas City Chiefs run defense LJ squares off against former mates; CIN wants to rest Cedric Benson a bit - would be perfect timing for Johnson to carry load
Johnny Knox, WR, CHI vs. Benny Sapp, CB, MIN Even if Devin Hester (calf) returns, Knox could stretch the field vs. MIN, who's allowing 1.50 TDs/gm to WRs in last 4 wks
Correll Buckhalter, RB, DEN vs. Philadelphia Eagles defense Facing former team, Buck could see more time with Knowshon Moreno tiring; look for DEN to try to establish the run early, mixing Buck in
Roy Williams, WR, DAL vs. DeAngelo Hall, CB, WAS Skins prone to the big play this year; they'll have to worry about Miles Austin and Jason Witten; Roy Dubs will fall between the cracks
Hank Baskett, WR, IND vs. Dwight Lowery and Lito Sheppard, CBs, NYJ With Pierre Garcon (hand) out and probably resting for playoffs, the non-Darrelle Revis WR a desperation play in deep leagues
