A week after carving up the Eagles, Manning was terrible against the Cardinals. He'll draw the start against the Redskins on Sunday, but it's unclear whether he'll give way to Davis Webb at some point. With recent poor performance and an uncertain gameplay for Week 17, Manning is a poor option in the season finale. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
 Cleveland is just 28th against fantasy quarterbacks and they should play their starters as long as the game is competitive, just in case New England loses. Big Ben is a QB1 in Week 17.
