    Atlanta Falcons (4-11) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-5)

    Start Em:
  • Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons
    Matt Ryan's been inconsistent this year, but he should get plenty of garbage yardage in this game.

    Leonard Fournette can be started if Ronald Jones is out once again.

  • Obvious Starts:
    ATL: WR Calvin Ridley, TE Hayden Hurst.

    Miami Dolphins (10-5) at Buffalo Bills (12-3)

    Start Em:
  • Myles Gaskin, RB, Dolphins
    Myles Gaskin is back, so I'd use him in most matchups because of his receiving ability.

    MIA: TE Mike Gesicki, Dolphins Defense.
    BUF: None.

    Sit Em:
  • Bills Offense
    The Bills may not play their starters the entire game.

  • Obvious Starts:
    JAX: None.
    IND: RB Jonathan Taylor, Colts Defense.

    Sit Em:

    Green Bay Packers (12-3) at Chicago Bears (8-7)

    Start Em:
  • Allen Lazard, WR, Packers
    Allen Lazard is healthy again.

    New Orleans Saints (10-4) at Carolina Panthers (4-10)

    Start Em:
  • Ty Montgomery, RB, Saints
    Alvin Kamara, Latavius Murray and Dwayne Washington are out, so Ty Montgomery is the next man up.

    Emmanuel Sanders is the Saints' top receiver with Michael Thomas out for the year.

  • Obvious Starts:
    NO: TE Jared Cook.
    CAR: WR Curtis Samuel.

    Andy Reid always sits his starters in Week 17.

    Las Vegas Raiders (7-8) at Denver Broncos (5-10)

    Start Em:
  • Nelson Agholor, WR, Raiders
    Nelson Agholor has blossomed into a good receiver somehow, and the matchup is positive.

    This is a good matchup for both of Denver's receivers.

  • Obvious Starts:
    LV: RB Josh Jacobs, TE Darren Waller.
    DEN: RB Melvin Gordon, TE Noah Fant.

    Arizona Cardinals (8-7) at Los Angeles Rams (9-6)

    Start Em:
  • Rams Starting Running Back
    It's Cam Akers if he's playing. If not, it's Darrell Henderson. If both are out, it's Malcolm Brown.

  • Obvious Starts:
    ARZ: QB Kyler Murray, WR DeAndre Hopkins.
    LAR: None.

    Sit Em:
  • Kenyan Drake, RB, Cardinals
    Kenyan Drake is losing too many touches to Chase Edmonds.
