Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
Any fantasy owners who have looked at Aaron Rodgers' production in Lambeau Field this season, can't possibly argue with his choice for our top pick in Week 17.
In seven home games, Rodgers has a stunning 132.6 QB rating. He's thrown for an average of 301.1 ypg, tossed 23 touchdowns without an interception and, oh yes, his Packers are 7-0 and averaging 41.4 ppg.
And while the Lions are a very good defensive team, it should be noted they are No. 1 against the run and only No. 13 against the pass.
Put Rodgers in your fantasy lineup and you can R-E-L-A-X.
Drew Brees and the Saints are out of the playoff hunt, but Brees has a chance to reach the 5,000-yard passing mark for the fifth time in his career. That's an even more impressive feat when you realize it's only been done eight times in NFL history. Brees needs 329 yards passing. He'll get it.
Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan has thrown for more than 300 yards in four consecutive games. He'll have a good chance to make in five-in-a-row when he and his Falcons face off for the NFC South title against Carolina in the Georgia Dome.
Ryan is historically a much better quarterback at home and that hasn't changed in 2014. He's averaging 311 ypg in seven home games with 15 touchdowns and just five interceptions. As long as Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas are healthy, Ryan should be a top fantasy selection.
Tony Romo was nearly perfect last weekend against the Colts (18-of-20 for 218 yards and four touchdowns) and faces a below-average Washington defense. The Cowboys still have a chance for a first-round bye, so expect to see Romo targeting Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and the rest of the receiving corps early and often to take pressure off of DeMarco Murray and his broken hand.
