Fantasy Football Week 17: Projections Good For Tim Tebow, Correll Buckhalter

It's the final week of fantasy football and that means star players won't play too much if their teams are already locked into the playoffs. But what about a team such as the Denver Broncos? They have long been out of playoff contention, but need to know which players should be brought back for 2011.

Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow could have a good game following his 308-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Houston Texans. Against the Chargers, Tebow is projected by ESPN to have 22 points (293 yards, one passing TD, one rushing TD). That isn't totally out there, but Tebow will go up against a pass defense that has performed well for most of the season (however, they did allow 4 passing touchdowns last week to Carson Palmer).

Correll Buckhalter may be a good pick-up for the final week of play. Running back Knowshon Moreno has injured ribs and missed most of the last two games due to that injury. Buckhalter finally found himself when he took over for Moreno, recording a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown. Don't expect the world out of him, but he is currently the hot hand in the backfield.
