Nicholas Minnix's Week 16 fantasy football matchups

No-brainers and no-ways? Matchups that look too good to be true certainly can be. And surprise performers lurk in the shadows. It may not be enough to consider lineup changes, but you know what they say about assumptions....

Key Matchup Reason
Jason Snelling, RB, ATL vs. Buffalo Bills OK, so this one is fairly obvious, since Michael Turner is "questionable." If you bench Snelling, your judgment is questionable.
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, NYJ vs. Indianapolis Colts Cotchery's production has been putrid lately, but he'll turn it up in PPR formats on Sunday. Indy will continue to slack with a busted up D.
Bernard Berrian, WR, MIN vs. Chicago Bears Forgotten, finally completely healthy and ready to celebrate his birthday a day late with something special for his old squad.
David Thomas, TE, NO vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Don't expect Jeremy Shockey to play much, if at all. Thomas' role will expand. Look for his numbers - in PPR, notably - to do the same.
Larry Johnson, RB, CIN vs. Kansas City Chiefs I'm not saying LJ holds a grudge. But I'm guessing he does. Cedric Benson may have a couple of pointers about how to exact it.
