That leads us to deciding on largely gamers on groups who we all know have to win to make the postseason. That assures heavy utilization for the perfect gamers on these rosters and hopefully good fantasy factors popping out of it.
Be sure you observe our Twitter account @SN_Fantasy to see all of our DFS content material heading into kickoff each week.
Week 17 NFL DFS Picks: Prime money recreation stacks for DraftKings, FanDuel
QB Justin Herbert and WR Jalen Guyton, Chargers @ Chiefs (FD stack)
Guyton won’t seem to be a cash-game participant at first look, however his pricing makes him one on FD. Particularly with Keenan Allen hurting, Guyton ought to see a giant function in what quantities to a meaningless Week 17 recreation for each of those groups.
The Chargers will most likely enable Herbert to try to pile up an enormous statistical recreation, although, and he’ll be going in opposition to Chiefs backups for at the least a few of the contest. That is a very good mixture for a giant DFS day for Herbert and his wideouts.
QB Ryan Tannehill and WR A.J. Brown, Titans @ Texans (FD/DK stack)
The Titans want this recreation whereas the Texans can have little or no to play for moreover making an attempt to dwell as much as J.J. Watt’s rant from Week 16. Tennessee might select to rely early on Derrick Henry, however that simply units up the play-action and fast slants to Brown.
Tannehill stays one of the crucial constant DFS choices within the NFL regardless of his status as a bust from his Miami days, and he ought to once more reward those that play him in Week 17. Brown’s an unbelievable participant after the catch and may have an opportunity to interrupt one or two lengthy ones Sunday.
RB Jonathan Taylor and DEF Indianapolis Colts vs. Jaguars (FD/DK stack)
The Jaguars simply locked up the No. 1 choose in 2021; the Colts want a win and a few assist to make the playoffs. That is as huge of a mismatch as you will see all season, and we’re going with the game-flow stack of operating again with protection.
Taylor has continued to indicate his expertise of late regardless of the annoying presence of Nyheim Hines, and he ought to do it as soon as once more in opposition to a bottom-five run protection in Week 17. The Colts will feast on no matter quarterback Jacksonville decides to throw on the sphere as a placeholder for the eventual Trevor Lawrence choice.
Week 17 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: Greatest stacks for every day fantasy soccer GPPs/tournaments
QB Baker Mayfield and WR Jarvis Landry, Browns vs. Steelers (DK stack)
That is largely about Mayfield’s pricing on DK among the many backside of the quarterback choices. Mayfield is on no account a celebrity, however Cleveland must win this recreation and he’ll have his receivers again after lacking them per week in the past.
The Browns will not run the ball tremendous simply in opposition to Pittsburgh regardless that they will attempt to set up it. Mayfield must win his alternatives within the play-action recreation. If he can do this, this stack can work and the Browns will make the playoffs.
QB John Wolford, WR Robert Woods and WR Cooper Kupp, Rams vs. Cardinals (FD stack)
Taking part in Wolford for his first NFL snaps in Week 17 is dangerous, sure, however Sean McVay has given us loads of purpose to imagine that he’ll design an offensive plan that works with Wolford on the helm practically in addition to it labored with Jared Goff (thumb) beginning.
Typically, it is best to play each Woods and Kupp since they’ve confirmed they’ll each have huge video games on the similar time. Wolford might want to lean on his prime targets, and McVay will definitely get them concerned early and sometimes. Each had huge reception totals within the first assembly between these groups, as nicely.
QB C.J. Beathard and TE George Kittle, 49ers vs. Seahawks (DK/FD stack)
Let’s get actually bizarre. Beathard simply threw three touchdowns and will get to face the worst move protection within the league. He is additionally at a miniscule worth regardless of his nice Week 16.
Kittle is actually admirable for coming again to play regardless that the 49ers haven’t any incentive at this level. Perhaps Kittle’s snaps can be monitored on this matchup, however count on him to be closely concerned whereas on the sphere.
