 Gordon may not play so be sure to monitor his injury status. If he does go, he is a sure-fire start, as the Chargers must win for a chance at the playoffs, and even a banged up Melvin Gordon is sure to make use of another 20+ touches.

He is extremely familiar with torching his division-opponent Panthers. Julio is my top receiver for Week 17. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Jones is battling through injuries, as usual, but it hasn't much affected his performance. He had a dominant game against the Saints, catching seven passed 149 yards, despite being in obvious discomfort at times. He has missed practice this week but will surely suit up against the Panthers in Week 17 with a playoff spot on the line. Carolina isn't a difficult matchup for opposing wide receivers, and James Bradberry, who will likely be on Jones, shouldn't pose too much of a problem. Consider him a top option, like always. 
Derek Lofland

Jones had 7 receptions for 149 yards last week and he goes against a Carolina team that is 28th against fantasy receivers. He is a WR1 in a must-win game for Atlanta.
