Evans has been getting it done lately, with 187 yards receiving and a touchdown over his last two games. He'll now have a tough matchup against the Saints who held him to just one catch and 13 yards receiving in Week 9. But with Evans likely to play the whole game and the Bucs likely to be playing from behind, he makes one of the few reliable options in Week 17.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.

The Saints are 17th against fantasy wide receivers, Evans has had a disappointing season, but should be a low-end WR1 to a high-end WR2 in a good matchup.
