Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 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.
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
The Seahawks have to win AND have the Panthers beat the Falcons to get into the playoffs. Both games begin at 4:25pm, so the Seahawks will be full throttle in this one.Still playing for seeding.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Cardinals are just 21st against fantasy quarterbacks, Wilson should be an elite QB1 option with the Seahawks playing for a playoff berth. 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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Wilson had a rough game against the Cowboys, throwing for just 93 yards, but salvaged his day with two passing touchdowns. That's sort of how it's worked for Wilson, who is often running for his life throughout the game, but finds a way to get things done. The Seahawks still have a chance for a playoff spot, so Wilson should be pulling out all the stops in Week 17 against Arizona. The Cardinals have been tough on quarterbacks in recent weeks, but you're not benching Wilson in a must-win fantasy game.
