Backups: (T): Cedric Ogbuehi, Jake Fisher, Eric Winston (G): (C): T.J. Johnson

Fantasy Impact: Cincinnati's o-line turned in a strong performance in Week 16's overtime loss to the Broncos. Facing the league's best defensive front, the line held up very well, especially protecting AJ McCarron who at times looked great moving the Cincy offense down the field. However, the team still lost, which means they will need some help if they want to still get a first round bye. The Bengals will need some help from the Chargers against Denver, which though unlikely, is still possible; meaning Cincy will give it their best effort in Week 17's AFC North tilt with the Ravens. And considering that Baltimore had their Super Bowl last week with their shocking upset of the Steelers, expect a less motivated Ravens team against the Bengals. As a result, look for a strong offensive week from the Bengals in Week 17, as they should be able to put up good numbers against a Ravens' defense with nothing to play for.

Injuries: Chaz Green, hip (PUP), RJ Dill (Suspension), Ronald Leary, groin (questionable)

Backups: (T): Charles Brown (G): Ronald Leary (C): Mackenzy Bernadeau

Fantasy Impact: Despite the outcome, Dallas' o-line turned another nice performance in Week 16's ugly 16-6 loss to the Bills. After a rough start to the season, this Cowboys' line has actually played great for most of the season, the issue has been a lack of offensive talent around them, especially at the quarterback position. As a result, Dallas should be able to turn things around quickly in 2016, assuming Romo comes back healthy and ready to contribute. However, first they must deal with a Washington team in Week 17 who has, against all odds, already clinched the NFC East. As a result, expect Washington to rest some of their starters, which could lead to a nice fantasy day for the Cowboys, especially for Darren McFadden who can put a nice cap on a surprisingly strong 2015 fantasy campaign this week.
