Week 17: Start 'Em

While we're not projecting starting type stats for these players, they have good potential and could surprise. This week's picks include Profiled players include Andrew Luck, Giovani Bernard, Donald Brown, Montee Ball, and Emmanuel Sanders.

Jarrett Boykin has had a rough go at it with Matt Flynn at quarterback; that was until the last two games, when he caught 11 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown, not to mention leading the team with 13 targets this past week. With the Packers in a must win week 17, all eyes will be on Aaron Rodgers to see if he plays. If he does that definitely boosts up Boykin. Regardless of QB, Boykin has proven he is a valuable fantasy performer. Let him start at flex or WR3.

If you need a TE in the finals, look no further than Greg Olsen. Olsen has been one of the most consistent TEs in fantasy this season. Though he will never be mistaken for Jimmy Graham as Olsen has only caught less than four passes, three times this season and only had less than 40 yards, on five occasions. Carolina clinched a playoff spot, but still wants to clinch the division and a first round bye, so they will be going all out in week 17. Last week Olsen led Carolina with seven targets after Steve Smith left the game early. With Smith highly doubtful, look for Olsen to have a big week in a very important game for the Panthers
