They need to win to get in, and should probably be expected to prevail over Carolina in this circumstance...barely.Still playing for seeding.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ryan has been the definition of mediocre this season, rarely throwing more than one touchdown pass or for significant yardage. But the Falcons are still in prime position for a playoff spot and so will be motivated to win on Sunday against the Panthers. Carolina is relatively tough on opposing quarterbacks, however, and Ryan's lack of upside makes him just a borderline play this weekend. 
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.
