Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Bryant has taken a lot of heat lately, and with good reason, as his failure to deliver in some key spots greatly hurt the Cowboys' playoff chances. The Eagles aren't a great matchup for receivers, but chances are they will rest some starters as the day goes along, which could allow Bryant to have an avenue for success. He's not an elite option in Week 17, but you could certainly do worse.
Heath Capps

He should torch Morris Claiborne at least once. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jets are just 21st against fantasy wide receivers, Cooks is a WR1 against a bad Jets secondary.
