Expert 
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
HC Doug Pederson wants Foles to get reps but said he will "be smart" about his playing time. You can't bank on Foles this week.Still playing for seeding.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Foles had a rough day against Oakland on Monday night, completing just 50% of his passes for 163 yards. Although the Eagles have clinched the No. 1 seed, it sounds like Foles will play for at least some of Sunday's finale against Dallas. He should have more success than in Week 16, though with an uncertain amount of playing time, he's a risky option in Week 17. 
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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Not that you need a reason to sit him after his Week 16 debacle, but the Eagles have absolutely nothing to play for in Week 17. They have a first-round bye locked up with home-field advantage throughout.
