This may be the final game of Marshawn's career, and while the Chargers have been hot lately, they still can't defend the run. He should see 20+, maybe even 25+ touches again this week so he is a fringe RB1.Brady is dealing with two injuries at the time and hasn't performed as well as we are used to over the past month as a result. With that said, they are playing for home field advantage throughout the playoffs this week, so he should play the whole game and is a must-start.

The Chargers are just 20th against fantasy running backs, Lynch will close the season as a mid-tier RB2.The Jets are just 29th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Patriots will need to play to win this game with the Steelers still in contention for the top-seed.
