Powell went nuts last week, rushing for 145 yards on 19 touches. We all know he is inconsistent, however, and while that 4 point performance might be right around the corner, another 20+ game could be as well so he is start-worthy, but a risk.

 They need to win to get in, and should probably be expected to prevail over Carolina in this circumstance...barely.
Dan Harris

 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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As we close out the year, Powell is doing just as he did in 2016. Over the last four games, he's managed to score at least 10.4 standard points in three of them, including a 145-yard, one-touchdown performance last week against the Chargers. With Matt Forte at less than 100 percent, expect Powell to finish strong.
