Brady is dealing with two injuries at the time and hasn't performed as well as we are used to over the past month as a result. With that said, they are playing for home field advantage throughout the playoffs this week, so he should play the whole game and is a must-start. 
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
Still playing for seeding.If the Saints win, the Panthers are the No. 5 seed regardless of outcome against Atlanta.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jets are just 29th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Patriots will need to play to win this game with the Steelers still in contention for the top-seed.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.
