If the Saints win, the Panthers are the No. 5 seed regardless of outcome against Atlanta. 
Derek Lofland

Newton had only 137 yards passing the last time these teams played, but he also had 86 yards rushing and a touchdown. He is a QB1 for the fantasy playoffs. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Newton surprisingly struggled against the Bucs, though he salvaged his day with a late rushing touchdown. The Panthers have made the playoffs but their exact playoff position could vary widely, and even could include a first-round bye, so expect them to be pulling out all the stops against Atlanta in Week 17. The Falcons are equally motivated, needing a win to guarantee a playoff spot, but they've been mediocre against quarterbacks for much of the season, including against Newton and the Panthers a few weeks back. Newton makes an excellent option in Week 17.
