We preview all of the Week 17 games from a fantasy perspective. To help you with lineup decisions, we give you matchups to exploit, some key starting choices and advice on whom to leave on your bench.

N.Y. Giants at Washington: Tiki Barber should be the focal point of the New York offense as he tries to ease pressure on Eli Manning, who shouldn't be counted on for much statistically. He should find Plaxico Burress for a score, though. Ladell Betts should finish the season with another fine outing, and Santana Moss will get deep for a score. Start and Smile: Tiki Barber, Plaxico Burress, Ladell Betts. Watch and Worry: Eli Manning.

Arizona at San Diego: The Chargers still have a No. 1 seed to play for in the AFC, and LaDainian Tomlinson will roll up huge numbers. Philip Rivers should throw more than one TD pass against a vulnerable secondary, and at least one will be to Vincent Jackson. Edgerrin James will be very busy as the Cardinals try to win the time of possession battle. Kurt Warner could turn the ball over more than once if Arizona plays from behind. Start and Smile: Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson. Watch and Worry: Kurt Warner.
