Cobb is pretty much the last man standing at this point, with both Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams out for the Packers' Week 17 game against Detroit. It's a decent matchup overall, as the Lions aren't particularly tough on opposing wide receivers, and Cobb is likely to see heavy targets in the game. That keeps him relevant in most leagues, though far from a reliable starter.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.

Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson are out, as is Aaron Jones. Jamaal Williams and Cobb should be busy.If the Saints win, the Panthers are the No. 5 seed regardless of outcome against Atlanta.

Now that we know Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams are out for Week 17, Cobb is the only starting-caliber wide receiver who'll be on the field for the Packers against the Lions. He also plays the slot, which means he'll escape the coverage of Darius Slay the majority of the time. Knowing everything we do, Cobb should be locked into six-plus targets in a plus-matchup, making him a WR3.

 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.
