Fantasy football Week 17 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em
Fantasy football leagues should end in Week 16. Need convincing? Just look at the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez led countless teams to the fantasy playoffs, but they're all lineup question marks this week because the Falcons have home-field advantage and can afford to sit their stars.
Head coach Mike Smith didn't offer much clarity for indecisive owners, saying: "We're gonna do whatever it takes to win this ball game in terms of game planning."
Ryan, White, Jones and Gonzalez will play for the Falcons, but for how long? Ryan is the only one owners are forced to sit this week, because the quarterback position needs to deliver so many points for championship fantasy teams. We explore this and other lineup questions in the final Start 'Em, Sit 'Em of the season.
