Rank Pos Name Team Vs Passing Rushing Receiving Fantasy
Points
Yds TDs Yds TDs Rec Yds TDs
1QBManning,Peyton DENOAK36030000030
Best quarterback in the land and this is a great matchup, so what's not to like? 
2QBBrees,Drew NOSTBB33035000027
With a trip to the playoffs on the line, the must-start Brees (knee) will bounce back in the friendly confines of the Superdome against a Buccaneers defense that ranks well below average in fantasy points allowed to enemy quarterbacks. UPDATE 12/28: Brees (bruised knee) took part in full practices Thursday and Friday, and he is listed as PROBABLE for Week 17. Start him with confidence. 
3QBCutler,Jay CHIGBP32530000027
After a forgettable week against the Eagles, it will all be on the line in the season finale, where Cutler will redeem himself.  
4QBFoles,Nick PHIDAL30030000026
Monster game coming from Foles against the Cowboys as he almost single handedly win you a fantasy title. 
5RBMcCoy,LeSean PHIDAL001501440025
Without Sean Lee plugging up the middle of the defense McCoy will left to run free. 
6QBWilson,Russell SEASTL270220000023
He couldn't stay undefeated at home forever. Back to work getting ready for the playoffs. 
7QBRodgers,Aaron GBPCHI32520000023
He's back! Expect a little rust, but the Packers need to win so he will be relied upon to get them to the playoffs. 
8QBRivers,Philip SDCKCC260210000022
Still in the thick of playoff contention, Rivers will make every effort to carry his team to a home victory on Sunday. 
9RBMurray,DeMarco DALPHI001251440022
With Romo likely sidelined, Murray will be the focal point on offense. Big game in the making here. 
10QBNewton,Cam CARATL240220000021
Start Newton (ankle) as a high-end fantasy QB2 versus a leaky Falcons defense that has allowed big outings to opposing quarterbacks all season. Newton has been bothered by an ankle injury, which is likely the reason why he has done little as a runner during the last two weeks. UPDATE 12/28: Newton (ankle) took part in full practices Thursday and Friday. He is listed as PROBABLE for Week 17. 
11QBRoethlisberger,Ben PITCLE250220000021
Roethlisberger can still run if he wants to and the Browns have given up their share of yards on the ground to the QB. Good spot for him even if he is slowed down in the air. 
12QBTannehill,Ryan MIANYJ250220000021
Tannehill looks to bounce back this week at home against the Jets after last week's debacle at Buffalo. 
13QBPalmer,Carson ARISFO29020000021
After shocking Seattle last week on the road, it will surprise few when they do it at home.  
14QBCousins,Kirk WASNYG30020000021
Cousins will finish off the year with solid production in the hopes of being moved in the offseason. 
15QBLuck,Andrew INDJAC240220000021
Luck will square off against a Jaguars defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in fantasy points allowed to enemy quarterbacks. Consider him a solid play as a fantasy QB2. Jacksonville won’t put up much of a fight, so Luck won’t have to light it up.  
16QBKaepernick,Colin SFOARI230225000021
He is playing his best football at the right time. He'll need to have his A game to get the win this week. 
17QBBrady,Tom NEPBUF240210000020
Buffalo is one of the better teams against the pass, even though he crushed many fantasy playoff dreams last week it's not like you're going to sit him. 
18QBPryor,Terrelle SEASTL250150000020
Getting his chance to finish with a bang, Pryor will put up adequate enough rushing numbers to be of help. 
19TEGraham,Jimmy NOSTBB0000880220
Graham is a must-start against a Tampa Bay defense that ranks close to average in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends.  
20QBOrton,Kyle DALPHI28020000020
Orton could be a great under the radar play for teams who have survived week to week with matchup based QBs after losing Aaron Rodgers. He has the weapons and the Eagles let up a ton of points. 
21QBFitzpatrick,Ryan HOUTEN235220000020
Consider Fitzpatrick a decent play as a fantasy QB2 versus a demoralized Houston defense that ranks way below average in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Since the Texans probably won’t put up a fight, don’t expect a monster outing from “Fitzmagic.”  
22QBRyan,Matt ATLCAR26020000019
Ryan will square off against a sack-happy Panthers defense that has been stingy to opposing quarterbacks. Although the Falcons triggerman and his teammates are still playing hard, don’t trust Ryan as anything more than a fantasy QB2.  
23QBStafford,Matthew DETMIN27520000019
He has really struggled down the stretch, the potential loss of Johnson is a big hit to his offensive production. If Isles is ready for this game, then bump these numbers higher. 
24QBCassel,Matt MINDET25020000018
He will be looking to lose the bad taste of a poor week 16 performance. The Vikings will stick with him and with little on the line, the offense will be able to move the ball against the Lions. 
25WRGordon,Josh CLEPIT00008120118
The Browns force fed Gordon last week, no reason to expect anything but the same. 
26WRAllen,Keenan SDCKCC0000465218
With five touchdowns in his last three games, Keenan is a prominent player you cannot afford to ignore. 
27RBForte,Matt CHIGBP00951430018
The dual threat of by land and by land, Forte will get back over 100 yards in total offense this week.  
28WRBrown,Antonio PITCLE00008110117
Brown will get his minimum 5 receptions to match Jimmy Smith's record of games in a season with at least five receptions. He's also had success vs. Haden before, who may or may not play. 
29WRThomas,Demaryius DENOAK00007110117
No offense to Eric Decker but with Wes Welker out, Demaryius is definitely the surest bet to win your team a championship. 
30WRMarshall,Brandon CHIGBP00008110117
With everything on the line and the spot light the brightest, the Bears best wide out will not disappoint.  
31RBLynch,Marshawn SEASTL00901320017
Beast mode will be out in full force after last week's wake up call. 
32WRGarcon,Pierre WASNYG00008110117
Expect another huge PPR game from Garcon.  
33QBManning,Eli NYGWAS25020000017
Given that it's Washington, Eli gets a small boost this week. Even still, he's been God awful and shouldn't be looked for to win any championships. 
34RBBell,Le'Veon PITCLE00801430017
Quantity over quality, that works in our game.  
35WRFitzgerald,Larry ARISFO00007110117
Big players show up for big games and he's one of the best. 
36QBDalton,Andy CINBAL260110000017
In a game that likely doesn't mean much to the Bengals (although a bye is within reach) expect a vanilla gameplan in what could be a rematch in the wildcard round. 
37WRRandle,Rueben NYGWAS00007100116
Randle will put on a clinic this week with Cruz out of the line up. 
38RBStacy,Zac STLSEA00951215016
He'll have more success than people will think but it won't be enough for the scoreboard. 
39WRDecker,Eric NYJMIA00007100116
Although not a sure bet to play given his thigh injury, Decker is on fire right now; he gained 117+ yards and at least a touchdown in three of his last four games. 
40QBCampbell,Jason CINBAL250110000016
The real Jason Campbell has emerged in December after a mirage of a start to his tenure in Cleveland. 
41RBMorris,Alfred WASNYG00100100016
Morris has ran well over the past few weeks and New York is weak in every aspect on defense. 
42WRJackson,DeSean WASNYG00006100116
It's been too long since DJax really went off. He's due for a massive breakout and the Cowboys offer the perfect opportunity for just that. 
43RBMathews,Ryan SDCKCC00901215016
A workhorse back of late, Mathews will reportedly fight through an ankle injury suffered in Week 16 and looks the part of a borderline RB1 for fantasy. 
44WRGreen,A.J. CINBAL0000690115
Green will get his. 
45RBMoreno,Knowshon MIANYJ00601435015
No more than 15 carries in any of his last four games, nevertheless he remains a solid bet for RB1 level fantasy production. 
46RBJohnson,Chris NYJMIA00801215015
Houston currently ranks 12th in fantasy points given up to enemy running backs, but you can toss that statistic out the window. The dispirited Texans have not been playing well for weeks. Consider Johnson a solid play as a fantasy RB2.  
47RBJohnson,Chris NYJMIA00801215015
Houston currently ranks 12th in fantasy points given up to enemy running backs, but you can toss that statistic out the window. The dispirited Texans have not been playing well for weeks. Consider Johnson a solid play as a fantasy RB2.  
48TEDavis,Vernon SFOARI0000690115
He is quietly putting together a fantastic season in which he's currently tied for second in TD's by tight ends this year. 
49RBBell,Joique DETMIN00450550115
Heavily involved in the passing game last week, a sneaky decent option this week. 
50RBJackson,Fred BUFNEP00701325015
Jackson is playing with a Broken rib, but New England is one of the worst NFL defenses defending against the run. 
51WRWhite,Roddy ATLCAR0000890115
White torched a rock-solid 49ers secondary for a season-best 12-141-1 stat line Monday night, so he should have some success against a Panthers secondary that has struggled on the road. Start him as a fantasy WR2.  
52WREdelman,Julian NEPBUF0000880114
He's Brady's favorite receiving target and will see plenty of Brady's attention. 
53WRBoldin,Anquan SFOARI0000680114
Expect for him to have a big game as the 49ers will need to throw to move the ball. 
54RBJennings,Rashad NYGWAS00701215014
Given how soft the Broncos defense has become versus the run and especially now that Von Miller is on the shelf, Rashad is someone you'll want to find space in your lineup for. 
55WRJeffery,Alshon CHIGBP0000680114
With Bennett and Marshall getting the defensive attention, Jeffery will be a fantasy factor. 
56WRBaldwin,Doug SEASTL0000680114
He's been a superb addition in the slot and will finish the regular season with career highs in receptions, yards, and touchdowns for a season. 
57QBSmith,Geno NYJMIA200115000014
Smith was replaced by Simms when these teams met back in week 13. Use another quarterback option for week 17. 
58RBBaker,Edwin CLEPIT00701210014
Baker is getting a long look at a role for next year, here or elsewhere. 
59WRHartline,Brian MIANYJ0000780114
Hartline had his best game of the season when these teams met back in week 13. As the Dolphins running game continues to struggle, Tannehill will look for him often. 
60WRNelson,Jordy GBPCHI0000780114
The return of Rodgers is good news, Nelson has hardly been in the end zone with Flynn at the helm. 
61WRBurleson,Nate CLEPIT0000680114
Should Johnson be hurt, Burleson will be the one to pick up the slack. 
62WRHilton,T.Y. INDJAC0000585114
Will the banged-up Hilton (shoulder) finally bounce back and hit pay dirt for the first time since Week 9 against a Jaguars defense that ranks below average in fantasy points allowed to enemy receivers? We think so. Start him as a fantasy WR3 or flex.  
63WRBryant,Dez DALPHI0000780114
Bryant's value takes a hit without Romo but Orton could still surpass expectations. Too talented to sit to matter the circumstance. 
64TEBennett,Martellus CHIGBP0000580114
The Bears tight end has been very active. 
65TEWitten,Jason DALPHI0000680114
While Orton dusts off the cob webs, he'll lean on his WR1 and tight end for the majority of his targets. Witten remains a TE1 given how inexperienced QBs go to the tight end. 
66QBHenne,Chad JACIND210120000014
Henne has tossed two scoring strikes in four straight contests, but that streak likely will come to an end against a resurgent Colts defense that has not allowed a touchdown pass in two consecutive games. Consider him a low-end fantasy QB2 play.  
67RBWilliams,DeAngelo CARATL00701215014
Since Jonathan Stewart (torn MCL) is not expected to play, Williams will continue to operate as Carolina’s featured tailback. Start him as a decent fantasy RB2 against an Atlanta defense that has struggled against opposing running backs all season. UPDATE 12/28: Jonathan Stewart (knee) officially has been ruled OUT for Week 17, which makes Williams a safer play. 
68QBManuel,E.J. BUFNEP185120000014
Manuel missed last weeks game, but may play this week at New England. Check his injury status later in the week. 
69RBEllington,Andre ARISFO00351450014
His touches have increased and his speed will be a difference maker in this playoff atmosphere matchup. 
70RBIvory,Chris NYJMIA0070115013
Ivory continues to share carries with Powell. 
71RBLacy,Eddie GBPCHI00651315013
He is expected to play through injury, the return of Rodgers will limit his numbers a bit. 
72TECook,Jared STLSEA0000575113
The lone bright spot for this offense. He'll find success in the middle of this defense. 
73RBBlount,LeGarrette PITCLE0070115013
Another favorable match up against the Bills this week at home. The only issue with Blount is Ridley may eat into some of his carries. 
74WRPatterson,Cordarrelle MINDET0000470113
He has been the best receiver for the Vikings down the stretch. 
75RBBernard,Giovani CINBAL00501220013
His touches are still limited, and the potential for a lemon is there, so there's risk in starting him but he can take it to the house every play. 
76WRCooper,Riley PHIDAL0000470113
Cooper is due for a long touchdown and there's no better time than the present. 
77WRGinn Jr.,Ted ARISFO0000475113
If Steve Smith (knee) is a no-go for Week 17, Ginn is expected to start in his place. Although he draws a favorable matchup against a leaky Falcons secondary, you should consider Ginn a high-risk/high-reward flex option or fantasy WR3.  
78WRFloyd,Michael ARISFO0000575113
Look for him to make a big play downfield that makes his stat line look a lot better than it would have been. 
79RBBlount,LeGarrette PITCLE0070115013
Another favorable match up against the Bills this week at home. The only issue with Blount is Ridley may eat into some of his carries. 
80WRWhalen,Griff INDJAC0000675113
The rookie Whalen played with Andrew Luck at Stanford, and we're starting to see the two rediscover their chemistry. During the last two weeks, Whalen amassed 11 catches for 125 yards and one touchdown on 13 targets while running as the Colts' slot receiver ahead of LaVon Brazill. Consider Whalen a desperation flex option against a Jaguars defense that ranks below average in fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers.  
81TEThomas,Julius DENOAK0000560112
Fitting that in this breakout season of his, Julius hauled in Peyton Manning's record breaking 51st touchdown pass. 
82RBMiller,Lamar MIANYJ00551210012
Not the best of match up this week. Miami abandoned the running game as the whole offense struggled against the Bills last week. 
83RBDavis,Knile KCCSDC00551215012
Apparently in line for an expanded workload this week. 
84TEMiller,Zach SEASTL0000465112
He plays well at home and Seattle is going to need him to keep pressure down the middle. 
85WRWright,Kendall TENHOU0000665112
Wright is a must-play as a fantasy WR3 against a Houston defense that ranks well below average in fantasy points allowed to the wide out position. Tennessee likely will go run heavy on offense, so don’t expect a big yardage total. Wright scored against the Texans in Week 2.  
86WRStreater,Rod OAKDEN0000565112
Losing his fantasy football luster now that Denarius Moore is back and given the fluctuating quarterback situation. 
87TEGriffin,Ryan HOUTEN0000660112
UPDATE 12/28: Making two consecutive starts in place of the injured Garrett Graham (hamstring – Injured Reserve), Griffin tallied a very respectable 11 catches and 128 receiving yards. The rookie will get the starting nod in Week 17. He looks like a solid fantasy TE2 play against a Tennessee defense that has struggled mightily against enemy tight ends. 
88TEOlsen,Greg CARATL0000665112
Although Olsen hasn’t hit pay dirt in four straight games, he averaged nine targets, six catches and 62 receiving yards per contest. Start Olsen as a fantasy TE1 against an Atlanta defense that has struggled to contain opposing tight ends all season. He scored against the Falcons back in Week 9.  
89RBAsiata,Matt MINDET0065100012
Peterson is out, so he'll get another chance as the starer. 
90RBGreene,Shonn TENHOU0050100011
Greene is coming off a season-best 19 carries for 91 yards and one touchdown against the Jaguars. Can he compile a fantasy friendly stat line two weeks in a row? The Titans likely will go run-heavy against a demoralized Texans defense, so Greene could hit pay dirt for the second straight week. However, you still should consider him a risky touchdown-dependent flex option.  
91WRDobson,Aaron NEPBUF0000350111
Dobson looks to get back on track this week after being held to one reception last week.  
92QBFlacco,Joe BALCIN19010000011
He shouldn't be playing, but he is the face of the franchise and a loss means no more football for 9 months.  
93WRJones,Jacoby BALCIN0000350111
This is the week Jones gets open deep. 
94QBSchaub,Matt OAKDEN18015000011
UPDATE 12/29: Case Keenum (sprained thumb – throwing hand) is INACTIVE, so Schaub will get the start. He is not a recommended play against a tough Titans secondary. 
95WRJennings,Greg MINDET0000450111
Defenses have been clamping down on him, another day of disappointing fantasy numbers. 
96TELewis,Marcedes JACIND0000550111
He has scored in four straight games. Although the Colts rank well above average in fantasy points allowed to enemy tight ends, keep rolling with the red-hot Lewis as a high-end fantasy TE2.  
97WRBoykin,Jarrett GBPCHI0000655111
As Nelson and Jones get the attention of the defense, Boykin is free to grab more than a few passes. These numbers take a hit if Cobb is active and plays a significant amount of time. 
98TEClay,Charles MIANYJ0000450111
Clay is coming off another poor performance but he did post decent numbers when these teams met back in week 13. 
99WRNelson,David NYJMIA0000440110
Nelson is coming off his best game this season but we would like him more this week if this were a home game. 
100WRWoods,Robert BUFNEP0000340110
Upgrade Woods if Johnson does not play this week. 
101TEWalker,Delanie TENHOU0000545110
Consider Walker a decent play as a fantasy TE2 versus a Houston defense that ranks well below average in fantasy points allowed to enemy tight ends. Tennessee likely will go run heavy on offense, so don’t expect a big receiving yardage total. Walker scored against Houston back in Week 2.  
102QBClemens,Kellen SDCKCC1451000009
As if playing In Seattle isn't hard enough, they come in facing a team looking to make a statement. 
103TEFauria,Joseph DETMIN000033019
The Lions tight ends gets a few looks, including some at the goal line. With Pettigrew out, the rookie will be the only pass catching option for Detroit at tight end. 
104WRCotchery,Jerricho CARATL000023019
Roethlisberger loves him in the red zone. 
105WRNicks,Hakeem INDJAC000069009
With Cruz out, Nicks will be in line for more targets. More targets against the Redskins is a good mix. 
106QBDaniel,Chase KCCSDC18001500009
Despite benefitting from significantly more snaps this week, Chase shouldn't be anywhere your lineup. 
107TEMyers,Brandon TBBNOS000033019
Myers isn't a great option but he could sneak in a touchdown against the Redskins. 
108RBBush,Reggie DETMIN0075011008
Bell is digging into his playing time, but close to a hudred in total yards this week. 
109RBJones-Drew,Maurice OAKDEN0055043008
Although Indianapolis ranks below average in fantasy points allowed to enemy running backs, the Colts have been playing a lot better during the last couple of weeks. Some doubt that Jones-Drew (hamstring) is 100 percent healthy, because he disappointed last week against what has been a soft Titans run defense. Consider MJD a weak play as a flex option. UPDATE 12/28: Jones-Drew (hamstring) took part in limited practices Thursday and Friday. He is listed as PROBABLE and is expected to start. 
110QBGlennon,Mike TBBNOS18001500008
Consider Glennon a very weak play as a fantasy QB2 versus a New Orleans defense that ranks above average in fantasy points allowed to enemy quarterbacks. 
111RBGrimes,Jonathan HOUTEN0055042007
UPDATE 12/28: Since Dennis Johnson (hip – QUESTIONABLE) likely will sit out Week 17 and Deji Karim (collarbone – Injured Reserve) has been lost for the season, Grimes is expected to get the start against a Titans defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. However, despite the favorable matchup, you should consider the 2012 undrafted free agent a desperation flex option at best. 
112WRWallace,Mike MIANYJ000077007
Wallace has been inconsistent this season. Playing against the Jet's secondary should help his cause this week. 
113RBSpiller,C.J. BUFNEP0060021007
Spiller only has 2 rushing touchdowns this season and has minimal fantasy value in his timeshare with Jackson. 
114WRJackson,Vincent TBBNOS000057507
Consider Mike Glennon's favorite target a weak play as a fantasy WR3 or flex versus a Saints defense that has been very stingy to enemy wide outs.  
115TECameron,Jordan CLEPIT000067007
Monitor the concussion, but if he plays he will be involved. 
116WRWilliams,Terrance DALPHI000057007
Without Romo, Williams becomes a very risky play. Witten and Bryant should be the only Dallas receivers to truly be counted on until we see what we got from Orton. 
117RBRichardson,Trent INDJAC0045043507
Consider the plodding Richardson a desperation flex play against a Jacksonville defense that yielded an average of 171 rushing yards and one total touchdown per contest to enemy running backs during the last two weeks.  
118RBPowell,Bilal NYJMIA0050032507
While Powell is involved in the Jet's passing game he has only 1 rushing touchdown this season. 
119RBWoodhead,Danny SDCKCC0030054007
Only two noteworthy games among his last six, as far as non-PPR formats go. 
120RBThomas,Pierre NOSTBB0035053506
Thomas continues to disappoint. Since Week 13, he averaged 11 total touches and 37 total yards per game. Thomas also hasn’t scored since Week 10. Consider the ice-cold Thomas a weak play as a flex in a challenging matchup against a Buccaneers defense that ranks well above average in fantasy points allowed to enemy running backs. UPDATE 12/28: Thomas (eye) took part in full practices all week, and he is listed as PROBABLE for Week 17. 
121RBRice,Ray BALCIN0040032006
A brutal season comes to a frustrating close. 
122WRSmith,Torrey BALCIN000046006
His inconsistencies make him too difficult to trust with an injured quarterback. 
123RBJackson,Steven ATLCAR0055021006
Atlanta’s featured runner scored six times in his last five games, but Jackson averaged just 3.6 yards per carry. The Panthers are very tough against the run, which is Jackson looks like a weak play as a flex option.  
124WRJones,James OAKDEN000066006
Expect a dip in his numbers as Nelson gets a bump with the return of Rodgers. 
125WRHolmes,Andre OAKDEN000046506
Averaging five receptions for 85 yards over the past four weeks. 
126WRJernigan,Jerrel NYGWAS000056006
Jernigan will get a little extra work but nothing worth leaning on. 
127WRJohnson,Andre HOUTEN000076506
Even if Matt Schaub gets the start over Case Keenum (sprained thumb – throwing hand), it's hard to like Johnson (wrist) as anything more than a flex option against a Tennessee defense that has been very stingy to opposing receivers. In addition, the dispirited Texans have been mailing it in for weeks. Sit Johnson if you have a safer option. UPDATE 12/28: Johnson (wrist) took part in full practices Thursday and Friday. He is listed as PROBABLE for Week 17. 
128RBRainey,Bobby TBBNOS0050021006
During the last two weeks, the struggling Rainey scored once, but he amassed just 71 total yards while averaging an anemic 2.1 yards per carry. He is not a recommended fantasy starter against a Saints defense that ranks above average in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. By the way, New Orleans usually plays well at home.  
129WRBrown,Mike JACIND000066506
Consider Brown a weak play as a flex option against an improving Indianapolis defense that has not allowed a touchdown pass to a wide out in two straight games.  
130WRAmendola,Danny NEPBUF000055005
Amendola looks to get back on track this week after he saw limited snaps and targets last week against the Ravens. 
131WRAvery,Donnie KCCSDC000045505
Probably stands to gain as much as anyone, with Andy Reid resting so many starters. 
132WRSanders,Emmanuel DENOAK000045005
Sanders has developed into a very good secondary receiver. 
133WRKearse,Jermaine SEASTL000035005
He complements Tate extremely well and gives Wilson two legitimate deep threat targets. 
134WRWashington,Nate TENHOU000045505
Don’t chase Washington’s fluky 100-yard game from Week 16. The inconsistent third option in the Tennessee passing attack is a low-end flex option against a Texans defense that ranks well below average in fantasy points allowed to enemy wide outs.  
135WRRogers,Da'Rick INDJAC000045005
Unfortunately, Rogers' 6-107-2 stat line against the Bengals in Week 14 is starting to look fluky. During the last two weeks, the rookie caught a combined six passes for 65 yards. Consider Rogers a high-risk/high-reward fantasy WR5 against a Jacksonville defense that ranks below average in fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers.  
136WRKerley,Jeremy NYJMIA000045005
Kerley leads all the Jet's receivers in receiving yardage. He has been limited by Smith's erratic play. 
137WRLaFell,Brandon NEPBUF000055005
The struggling third option in the Carolina passing attack hasn’t caught more than three passes in a contest since Week 11. Despite a favorable matchup against a soft Atlanta secondary, LaFell is too risky to trust in your starting lineup.  
138WRMoore,Lance PITCLE000045005
Moore has caught more than three passes in just one of his last seven games played. He is not a recommended starting option.  
139WRDurham,Kris DETMIN000055005
Somewhat involved, a lot of wide outs are also in the mix, but a bump in numbers if Johnson is indeed out. 
140RBThomas,Daniel MIANYJ0040021005
Thomas missed practice earlier in the week, check his injury status later in the week if you dare to start him. 
141WRStills,Kenny NOSTBB000035505
The situational deep threat hasn’t scored since Week 10, and Stills caught more than three passes in just one of his last nine games played. The rookie should not be on your radar.  
142WRJones,Marvin CINBAL000045005
Expect Jones to be the primary second target come January, especially in the red zone. 
143WRColston,Marques NOSTBB000045005
The Buccaneers rank near the bottom of the NFL in fantasy points allowed to enemy wide outs. However, Colston (back) likely will draw shadow coverage from elite cornerback Darrelle Revis. Consider Colston a weak play as a flex or fantasy WR3. UPDATE 12/28: Colston (back) took part in full practices Thursday and Friday. He is listed as PROBABLE for Week 17. 
144RBGore,Frank SFOARI005501505
This Cardinal run defense is for real and Frank Gore is about to find out. 
145WRTate,Golden DETMIN000045505
Wilson does such a great job of spreading the ball around its tough to trust him week to week. 
146WRCrabtree,Michael SFOARI000045505
As good as he is, Patrick Peterson will be a bit better in this matchup. 
147WRCaldwell,Andre DENOAK000034004
Figures to show up in the box score, what with Wes Welker inactive. 
148RBRidley,Stevan NEPBUF004001504
Ridley is working his way back into New England's running game. Upgrade him this week if Vereen is out of action. 
149WRDouglas,Harry ATLCAR000054504
He has been taking a backseat to Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez during the last few weeks. Although Douglas will go up against a Carolina secondary that has been burnable on the road, you should consider him a weak play as a flex option.  
150WRMoore,Denarius OAKDEN000034004
His three catch, 17 yard stat line from last week is representative of how far he's fallen from fantasy relevance. 
151WRHixon,Domenik CHIGBP000044004
UPDATE 12/28: With Ted Ginn starting in place of the injured Steve Smith (knee), Hixon is expected to see some action in the slot. The little-used wide out, however, is not fantasy starter material.  
152RBIngram,Mark NOSTBB0030011004
Don’t chase Ingram’s fantasy outing from last week (13 carries for 83 yards). He is a situational runner, and it was only the second time all season that Ingram amassed more than 35 rushing yards in a game. We don’t recommend Ingram as a fantasy starter against a Buccaneers defense that ranks above average in fantasy points allowed to enemy running backs.  
153RBVereen,Shane NEPBUF0010033004
Check his injury status prior to starting this week as he left last week's game with a groin injury. 
154WRHopkins,DeAndre HOUTEN000034504
The struggling rookie has hauled in three or fewer passes in each of his last six games. Hopkins (ankle) draws a tough matchup against a Titans defense that has been very stringy to enemy wide outs. He is not fantasy starter material. UPDATE 12/28: Hopkins (ankle) practiced all week. He is listed as PROBABLE for Week 17. 
155TEPitta,Dennis BALCIN000044004
Flacco's best friend doesn't mean as much when Flacco is playing injured. 
156TEChandler,Scott BUFNEP000034004
There are better tight end options for week 17 as Chandler has not scored a receiving touchdown since week 6. 
157WRMcCluster,Dexter TENHOU000044004
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we have to insist that McCluster only makes it into your lineup in leagues that tack on points for return yardage. 
158WRRoyal,Eddie SDCKCC000034004
While it's commendable that Royal's effectively played through relatively minor injuries, his fantasy upside is severely limited as compared to the numbers he put up in the early going. 
159TEGates,Antonio SDCKCC000044504
Continues to slide down the ranks of fantasy tight ends you talk yourself into starting. 
160TEErtz,Zach PHIDAL000044004
Ertz's entire value is touchdown based. TD or nothing isn't the winning formula for a fantasy trophy. 
161TERivera,Mychal OAKDEN000033503
Not the worst starting tight end of the bunch, but Rivera doesn't exactly get a ton of work either.  
162RBTolbert,Mike CARATL0025031503
Despite the absence of Jonathan Stewart (torn MCL) last week, Tolbert touched the ball just three times. In Week 15, he touched the ball 13 times. Tolbert’s inconsistent workload and touchdown-dependent fantasy status makes him way too risky to trust as a starter on your fantasy bowl team.  
163TECelek,Brent PHIDAL000043503
Celek has been more consistent in the red zone than Ertz. Still, both are a coin flip for one of Foles Tds. 
164TEPaulsen,Logan WASNYG000033003
Paulsen falls in at the bottom of the barrel for tight end options. 
165TEFleener,Coby INDJAC000033003
During the last two weeks, the ice-cold Fleener amassed just two catches for eight yards on four targets. The second-year pro draws a sweet matchup against a Jaguars defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in fantasy points allowed to enemy tight ends. However, we don’t trust the struggling Fleener as anything more than a roll-of-the-dice fantasy TE2.  
166TEMiller,Heath PITCLE000033003
He has not developed like we thought he would this year coming off the knee injury, but the Browns struggle vs. the tight end and Miller has had plenty of success in this matchup. 
167TECumberland,Jeff NYJMIA000033003
Cumberland wasn't factor when these teams met back in week 13. 
168RBBall,Montee DENOAK003001503
May wind up getting enough touches to matter, but is that the sort of thing you want to count on? 
169RBGreen-Ellis,BenJarvus CINBAL003000003
The Bengals have had more success since relying more heavily on the ground, but the Law Firm is just a quantity back that doesn't even get the goal line anymore. 
170RBReece,Marcel OAKDEN0010032503
Has minuscule fantasy value now that Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden are splitting reps as the primary ball carrier. 
171WRBrown,Vincent SDCKCC000033003
Catches just enough passes to warrant a roster spot in extremely deep leagues. 
172WRHemingway,Junior KCCSDC000033503
Gets the nod due essentially to Dwayne Bowe's concussion symptoms. 
173TEGresham,Jermaine CINBAL000033003
The Ravens are tough vs. the tight end. 
174WRMatthews,Rishard MIANYJ000033003
Matthews has not been a focal point of the Dolphins passing game down the stretch. 
175WRLittle,Greg CLEPIT000033003
With Bess out the opportunity is there, but the Browns are correctly still not using him much. 
176WRMartin,Keshawn HOUTEN000043503
Although Martin has hit pay dirt in two of his last three contests, it's hard to trust a situational slot receiver as a fantasy starter. In addition, Tennessee has done a very good job of bottling up enemy wideouts. Martin should not be on your fantasy radar.  
177WRSanders,Ace JACIND000043003
The rookie is not a recommended fantasy starter against an Indianapolis defense that has not allowed a wide receiver to score in two straight contests.  
178WRSanu,Mohamed CINBAL000023003
He has been surpassed as the Bengals #2 receiver. 
179TEHousler,Robert ARISFO000043503
San Francisco has incredibly athletic linebackers that will make his job a tough one all day long.  
180WRCobb,Randall GBPCHI000033003
The Packers are indicating the Cobb will be active for the game, minimal stats projected until his role becomes clear. 
181RBPierce,Bernard BALCIN003000003
The backup behind a shoddy line? Pass. 
182WRUnderwood,Tiquan CARATL000023503
Aside from his fluky two-touchdown performance in Week 12, Underwood has been very disappointing as the Buccaneers' No. 2 receiver. He hasn’t caught more than three passes in a game all season. Underwood is not fantasy starter material.  
183WRHunter,Justin TENHOU000023003
The talented-but-inconsistent rookie posted a goose egg last week. Hunter is way too risky to trust in the starting lineup of a fantasy bowl team, despite a favorable matchup against a Houston defense that ranks well below average in fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers.  
184RBTodman,Jordan JACIND0020021003
With Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) starting again, the speedy Todman, unfortunately, has been relegated to a change-of-pace role. He won’t receive enough touches to fantasy relevant this week.  
185TEWright,Tim TBBNOS000043503
Wright's matchup is favorable on paper, but it's hard to trust the rookie against a fired up Saints defense at the Superdome. 
186RBOgbonnaya,Chris CLEPIT0015032003
Ogbonnaya had his chance to etch out a meaningful role, but fumbled it away. 
187RBBrown,Bryce PHIDAL003000003
Don't expect the Eagles to get up as big as they did last week. Without being up by such a large margin, Brown's carries will be limited. 
188RBMcFadden,Darren OAKDEN003001503
Scored a rushing touchdown in his return to live action, a week ago, but don't expect lightning to strike twice. 
189WRPettis,Austin STLSEA000033003
Eight catches in his last six games means his disappointing season is just about over. 
190TEFasano,Anthony KCCSDC000032502
This offense appears too unpredictable to roll with someone like Fasano this week. 
191RBStarks,James GBPCHI002500002
Despite the spike in carries last week, Starks will be the backup to Lacy.  
192TEQuarless,Andrew GBPCHI000022002
Not a lot of action of late, a risky start this week.  
193WRWright,Jarius MINDET000012502
Not a lot of passing offense this week from the Vikings. 
194RBGraham,Ray HOUTEN002001502
UPDATE 12/28: Since Deji Karim (collarbone – Injured Reserve) has been lost for the season and Dennis Johnson (hip – QUESTIONABLE) likely will sit out Week 17, undrafted rookie free-agent Graham will operate as the backup to fill-in starter Jonathan Grimes. Since Grimes is expected to receive the bulk of the Houston backfield touches, Graham should not be on your fantasy radar. 
195TEWinslow,Kellen NYJMIA000022002
Winslow has not practiced yet this week as he has been limited with a knee injury.  
196WRRoberts,Andre WASNYG000022002
With Fitzgerald and Floyd healthy, his contribution will be minimal. 
197WROgletree,Kevin DETMIN000032002
The ball will be spread around too much to consider him 
198RBBanyard,Joe MINDET002500002
He'll be the backup this week, some runs as change of pace. 
199RBBrown,Ronnie SDCKCC002001502
As heavily as San Diego is favored, you have to think Ronnie will get more touches if & when his team rockets out to a comfortable lead. 
200TEEifert,Tyler CINBAL000022002
Eifert is banking on a jump ball in the end zone to salvage his day, next year is the year. 
201WRBrown,Marlon BALCIN000022002
Brown is a Flacco favorite in the red zone, but we can't expect them to get down there enough. 
202RBTurbin,Robert SEASTL002500002
He's proven to be a great complement to Marshawn Lynch's running style in this offense. 
203WRGivens,Chris STLSEA000022502
He hasn't topped 31 yards in five straight games and now gets Richard Sherman. Uh, no. 
204WRGraham,T.J. BUFNEP000022002
Graham and Goodwin have too many options ahead of them in Buffalo's passing game. 
205WRHawkins,Andrew CLEPIT000022002
He has a niche role, but too risky and not enough reward for our game. 
206TEGreen,Ladarius SDCKCC000012002
No receptions the last three weeks, so to say Ladarius is a risky fantasy option would of course be an understatement. 
207TEEllison,Rhett MINDET000032502
With Carlson out, Ellison gets a couple of looks. 
208RBHunter,Kendall SFOARI001500001
The lack of running game success will limit his touches. 
209TEHoomanawanui,Michael NEPBUF000011001
Hoomanawanui and Mulligan spend most of their time providing extra protection for Brady. 
210WRGoodwin,Marquise BUFNEP000011001
Goodwin and Graham have too many options ahead of them in Buffalo's passing game. 
211RBCunningham,Benny STLSEA001000001
Very little chance of him making an impact on this game. 
212TEMulligan,Matthew CHIGBP000011001
Mulligan and Hoomanawanui spend most of their time providing extra protection for Brady. 
213TETamme,Jacob DENOAK000011001
Just goes to show, just because he's technically a cog in a prolific offense doesn't make him fantasy relevant. 
214TEMulligan,Matthew CHIGBP000011001
Mulligan and Hoomanawanui spend most of their time providing extra protection for Brady. 
215RBGray,Cyrus KCCSDC001000001
The backup to Knile Davis, with Jamaal Charles inactive. 
216TEMcGrath,Sean KCCSDC000011001
Gets into the game plenty, even as the secondary tight end -- but he offers no fantasy upside. 
217WRSimpson,Jerome MINDET000011001
Minimally involved. 
218WRBrazill,LaVon INDJAC000011001
The second-year pro has dropped behind Griff Whalen on the Indianapolis receiver depth chart. During the last two weeks, Brazill hasn’t caught any passes and has been targeted just once. He should not be on your fantasy radar.
