It’s the final week of the regular season and that means we are coming to the final week of most fantasy leagues. Here are your fantasy five for week 17 of the NFL season.

1. Montell Owens (RB) Jacksonville Jaguars

With Maurice Jones-Drew out, Owens totaled 116 yards in week 16. The Jaguars will be facing an awful Titans defense, so Owens is an intriguing fantasy option.

2. Justin Blackmon (WR) Jacksonville Jaguars

Some fantasy owners have forgotten about Blackmon after his monster week 11 performance. However, Blackmon has continued to offer value and he once again will week 17. Blackmon has become a favorite target of Chad Henne’s, being targeted 12 times last week.

3. San Diego Chargers Defense/Special Teams

We picked up the Chargers defense for week 17 in our fantasy league after they put up a good showing week 16 against the Jets. Yes, it’s the Jets, but the Chargers face an already awful Raiders team that will be playing without Carson Palmer.

4. Lance Kendricks (TE) St. Louis Rams

Kendricks caught four passes for over 100 yards and a touchdown week 16 for the Rams. With four touchdowns on the season and three of them coming in the last five games, Kendricks is a decent option for fantasy owners looking for a tight end.

5. Mike Williams (WR) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Williams has been up and down all season and you never know when he will get the majority of catches over Vincent Jackson. However, Williams  has been targeted a lot over the last few weeks including 17 times last week. If you’re looking for a flex option, Williams is worth taking a gamble on.
