 Still playing for seeding.

McCaffrey had 94 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown the last time these teams played. McCaffrey should be low-end RB1 for Week 17.The Buccaneers are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, Brees should be a QB1 with the Saints playing for the NFC South title.
Dan Harris

McCaffrey disappointed in Week 16 against the Bucs, gaining just 58 total yards. But he saw more rushing attempts than Jonathan Stewart and was far more effective. The Panthers still have an outside chance at the division, so expect them to play hard against Atlanta next weekend. That bodes extremely well for McCaffrey, as the Falcons struggle against pass-catching backs, allowing the most receptions to the position. That should keep McCaffrey as a borderline RB1 in Week 17.Brees, as usual, was excellent from a real-life perspective against the Falcons, but lackluster from a fantasy perspective, with just one touchdown pass and an interception. With a heavy reliance on the running game, it's doubtful that Brees will magically need to air the ball out next weekend against the Bucs. The Saints' playoff seeding can still move around, and they need a win to secure a home game, so expect Brees to be motivated. Still, that should leave him as just a reliable but uninspiring fantasy option.
Mike Tagliere

In a game that means everything to both the Panthers and the Falcons, expect McCaffrey to be used a lot this week. The Falcons continually allow massive yardage through the air to running backs, and now allowed 10 more receptions to them than any other team. This matchup was made for McCaffrey, who burned them for 94 yards and a touchdown the last time they played.
