 If the Saints win, the Panthers are the No. 5 seed regardless of outcome against Atlanta.

The Bears are 6th against fantasy running backs, Murray is a boom / bust RB2.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
Murray was unspectacular against the Packers, gaining 75 total yards on 22 touches. But he saw a ton of work, as usual, which always keeps him as a viable fantasy play. The Bears allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, but you're not going to avoid Murray in light of the uncertainty at running back in Week 17. The Vikings could still technically lose out on a bye, so expect them to play their starters, and for Murray to have a decent fantasy day.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.
