It's the final week of the NFL season. Unless you're in some weird we-play-week-17 fantasy football league, you don't have any fantasy to play. Have no fear, FanDuel is here!

Speaking of FanDuel, the Bucs don't have a lot to offer there. None of the running backs can be counted on. Josh McCown has been beyond useless this year, aside from a few games at mid-season. The defense is facing Drew Brees sooooo yeah, don't start them either. And even Mike Evans has been limited in recent weeks.

Instead, consider starting Vincent Jackson. He had a slow start to the season, but has averaged six catches for 96 yards over the last three weeks. And he'll start adding touchdowns to that average too, at some point. At $6,500, that's pretty good FanDuel value.

Another option: start Drew Brees. The Bucs have been outstanding at limiting touchdowns, but they've given up quite a number of yards, especially in the last few weeks. Aaron Rodgers put up 318 yards last week, even though he found the endzone only once. Brees should put up some decent numbers, as he did the first time these two teams faced each other this year.

Editor's Note: FanDuel is hosting a $600,000 fantasy football league for SBNation. It's $5 to join and first place wins $50,000. League starts Sunday 1 PM ET and ends on Monday. Here's the link.
