Emmanuel Sanders will be hitting free agency at just the right time. Sanders has already surpassed his career high in all receiving categories and will look to add to it this week vs. the Browns. Look for shut down corner Joe Haden to cover Antonio Brown, leaving Sanders to make the plays. Last time these two teams met, Sanders had six receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown. Look for much of the same this time around. Sanders' value is higher in PPR leagues. He did slip and fall in the game against Green Bay, so follow his practice situation. If he plays, start him.

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
