Week 17 thread
Posted by AtlantaLSUfan on 12/26 at 6:10 am
For guys still playing in week 17, help me list which NFL teams have something to play for.

-Dallas and Washington are battling for a playoff spot/division championship.

-I think Baltimore and Cincy play to see who is the wildcard vs who is the division championship

-I would not start any Atlanta Falcons

For those of you who do not know, week 17 is always very weird. It's like a preseason game, starters get pulled and backups play 3quarters. Very difficult to pick who's going to do well. It's not a matter of "who do I start", it's about "who will play the whole game".

Houston, Denver, and NE are battling for home field advantage with each other so thankfully if you have Manning (me), Brady, or Foster they should all play a full game

Also the Vikings still have a playoff shot plus there is the rushing record, AP should be all systems go

I'm not sure how important 2000 receiving yards is to Megatron but I'm guessing he'll play plenty

Trent Richardson is probably not going to play

Even Houston, Denver, and NE will rest their starters once they get a lead.

Looks like Green Bay is playing for a bye, so that GB vs Minnesota game will be solid.

I'm dropping Matt Ryan for Mike Vick, may even pick up Falcon's back up RB.

Only if they have it locked up. I'm still starting Peyton but I have Russell Wilson and Josh Freeman just in case

The only teams that would rest starters are playoff teams with nothing to play for.

All the shite teams with injured players will be out from the injury reports on Friday. I would not be afraid to start a guy from a shite team (assuming he is a good fantasy football player like Cam or Calvin). You have to be more careful with a team like Atlanta with nothing to play for.

Do yall think Ray Rice will play this week?

I've got him CJ Spiller, Doug Martin, and Shonn Greene. Can play three of them.

What do y'all think about the Seahawks? My QB choices this week are Freeman and Wilson.

I would say Wilson, I'm considering starting him over Peyton but I think I'm gonna not.

What about Antonio Brown vs. the Browns
or Chris Johnson vs. the Jags

None of those teams are going to the playoffs so.....

Play Chris Johnson, he'll be in all game.

Just read that the Raiders are starting Terrell Pryor. Would avoid everyone except McFadden LINK

Only person I am skeptical about playing is Reggie Wayne. Think I will stick to Decker and Dez. Also unsure whether I want to play Shonn Greene or Reggie Bush in the flex. After what Gore and Foster did to me last week, I just can't imagine that will happen again (2 combined points from those two)

Gore should be fine. SF needs to win.

Guys who've never played week 17 - it's an art form. The starters will only play one half. A lesser ranked guy who plays all four quarters is a better start.

Would anyone play Matt Ryan or Roddy White?

My other option is Russell Wilson and Antino Brown

Looks good to me. You should get solid playing time from all. The only worry would be AJ. I know the coach said that he'll be pushing them since they've been playing poorly. But you have to think that if they either get down fast early or take some hard hits, that he'll just go ahead an pull the starters since they are essentially playing for nothing. With that said, you can't really justify playing anyone over him from your bench unless you think VJax might light it up against some 2nd string ATL dbs.

Antonio Brown all day. The other WR in Pitt just went on IR.

I was actually considering this. Baltimore has been playing pretty well too.
