Fantasy Impact:

For the Panthers, if Corey Brown is out, then Devin Funchess figures to be a Sneaky Start once again. With Zach Ertz and Ryan Mathews out, Brent Celek and Darren Sproles both get a bump. Celek is a top 10 play this week in a nice matchup with the Lions. Calvin Johnson is questionable but is expected to play. With Martellus Bennett sidelined, Zachary Miller is also a Sneaky Start at the tight end position. He has been very involved the last few weeks and the Packers just gave up a boatload of fantasy points to Kyle Rudolph last week. Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte are both expected to play, but the Bears have been very devious when it comes to handing out injury information. Don't be shocked if either is inactive on Thursday evening. If they both return, it will obviously put a dent in the upside of Marquess Wilson and Jeremy Langford, respectively.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. Washington

Darren McFadden carried the ball 19 times for 99 yards last week and expect that to be the case this week as well. The Cowboys will rely on the running game with Kellen Moore at quarterback so frequency will not be an issue for McFadden.

The Redskins are 20th in aFPA to running backs and McFadden did score a touchdown the last time these two teams met. He rushed 14 times for 54 yards.. The frequency should carry him to a big game in Week 17. Start McFadden in all leagues and formats.
