Welcome to the NFL's Silly Season! It's Week 17, and as such, teams that already have everything wrapped up (like the Green Bay Packers, who can end up with the NFC's one-seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs as a worst-case scenario) are resting most or all of their key marquee starters. We'll be laughing heartily if Tony Dungy criticizes this move on Football Night in America.

Here are all the early inactives; we can only hope that your fantasy league wrapped things up last week. As always, thanks to Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog for all the help!
