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.

Still playing for seeding.

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.McCaffrey had 94 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown the last time these teams played. McCaffrey should be low-end RB1 for Week 17.
Dan Harris

 McCaffrey disappointed in Week 16 against the Bucs, gaining just 58 total yards. But he saw more rushing attempts than Jonathan Stewart and was far more effective. The Panthers still have an outside chance at the division, so expect them to play hard against Atlanta next weekend. That bodes extremely well for McCaffrey, as the Falcons struggle against pass-catching backs, allowing the most receptions to the position. That should keep McCaffrey as a borderline RB1 in Week 17.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 In a game that means everything to both the Panthers and the Falcons, expect McCaffrey to be used a lot this week. The Falcons continually allow massive yardage through the air to running backs, and now allowed 10 more receptions to them than any other team. This matchup was made for McCaffrey, who burned them for 94 yards and a touchdown the last time they played.
