For the vast majority of fantasy leagues week 17 is Championship Week. It’s time to get this last W and show your friends who is the fantasy football king this season. Since most of your lineups are already set and you will not be change a lot of things based on the Saints-Falcons game my preview will be a little bit different this week.

If you have any last minute tough decisions to make and want some advice you can find me on Twitter @FedeFerrari10.

Good luck guys, may the fantasy football gods be with you!

ATLANTA FALCONS @ NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

NO-BRAINERS

Drew Brees, Matt Ryan

Both quarterbacks have a great matchup plus, they are the top-2 fantasy quarterbacks over the last four weeks with 97.78 and 88.76 points respectively.

Jimmy Graham, Julio Jones

Jimmy Graham has 7 touchdown catches in 9 career games against the Falcons mainly because they have nobody to cover him when he’s healthy. He looked good against the Bears last week, don’t hesitate and start him,

Even at 80% Julio Jones is better than a lot of NFL wide receivers and Matt Ryan relies heavily on him: it will be impossible for the Saints to shut him down completely.

POTENTIAL FLEX STARTERS

Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas

The Falcons are awful against the run so they should both have a nice fantasy day. Plus, PT is the Atlanta Falcons killer like WDD editor John Hendrix explains here!

Roddy White

White averages 63.4 receiving yards against the Saints and he’s likely to be open for Matty Ice, unless Terrance Frederick goes BeastMode on him.

HIGH-RISK/HIGH REWARD

Kenny Stills, Marques Colston, Steven Jackson

If I had to choose between Stills and Colston I’d go with Stills, he has huge big-play potential against a shaky Falcons’ secondary. Steven Jackson could be another sneaky good fantasy player this week: he hasn’t been very consistent this year but over the last four weeks he failed to score 10 fantasy points or more only once.
