We guess huge final week on Aaron Rodgers in our Yahoo day by day fantasy soccer event lineup, and it paid off in an enormous means. It might need taken till the final play of the sport, however our Rodgers-Davante Adams stack got here via, whereas Christian McCaffrey, Calvin Ridley, Chris Carson, and David Njoku all additionally had good video games. Our solely actual bust was the Lions D/ST, as even middling gamers like Robert Foster and Allen Robinson contributed somewhat one thing. However final week’s success means nothing heading into Week 17 NFL DFS contests, so we’ll must sharpen our picks in what’s often a wacky week. 

Our major technique will doubtless be a reasonably chalky one: Stack Steelers towards the Bengals. Pittsburgh has quite a bit to play for, and Cincinnati’s lowly protection was simply torn up by the Browns. We’re solely going with a Ben Roethlisberger-JuJu Smith-Schuster stack versus a full onslaught with somebody like Vance McDonald thrown in, however getting two items of Pittsburgh’s passing recreation looks like a wise transfer. We additionally like Saquon Barkley as a semi-contrarian choose towards a Cowboys protection with nothing to play for.

Week 17 Rankings:
Quarterback | Operating Again | Vast Receiver | Tight Finish | ProtectionKicker

A few of our different picks may appear like they’re left over from final week (Jamaal Williams, Robert Foster), however we like Williams to maintain his scorching streak going because the Packers are clearly nonetheless making an attempt and targeted on giving him the ball. Foster busted final week, however we’re hoping that depresses his possession and he bounces again towards a Dolphins protection that doubtless needs nothing to do with a meaningless recreation in late-December Buffalo climate.

Yahoo Fantasy Soccer: Week 17 NFL DFS event lineup

QB Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers vs. Bengals ($39). Roethlisberger has at the least two TDs in 4 straight video games, however maybe essentially the most noteworthy stat is Roethlisberger has had at the least 45 go makes an attempt in 4 of the previous six contests. Pittsburgh ought to be capable of run on the Bengals, however primarily based on current tendencies, they will elect to go, which they will additionally do with ease.

RB Saquon Barkley, Giants vs. Cowboys ($33). Barkley hasn’t produced a lot by way of complete yardage the previous two weeks, however he scored final week and stays computerized for touches (at the least 18 in all however one recreation this 12 months). The Cowboys don’t have anything to play for, and Barkley might be trying to pad his stats and Offensive Rookie of the 12 months resume, so we expect he’ll produce at probably depressed possession.

RB Jamaal Williams, Packers vs. Lions ($16). Williams noticed 21 touches in Inexperienced Bay’s Week 16 extra time win, ending with 156 complete yards and a rating. The Packers are clearly making an attempt to finish the season with some victories, and Williams is competing for a job subsequent season. He ought to proceed to see 15-plus touches this week, and though Detroit’s run protection has been fairly formidable over the second half of the season, we like Williams’s worth and upside as a receiver.

WEEK 17 DFS GPP LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKings

WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers vs. Bengals ($28). Smith-Schuster confirmed no indicators of his groin harm in Week 16, catching 11 of 15 targets for 115 yards, and whereas his outing paled compared to Antonio Brown’s (14-185-2), we all know JuJu can go off in his personal proper. He posted 111 yards towards Cincinnati earlier this 12 months, and the Bengals protection has solely gotten worse.

WR T.Y. Hilton, Colts @ Titans ($23). Hilton is underpriced for his consistency and big-play skill. His lack of TDs is what retains his worth palatable, however he can burst for a number of TDs in any given week. He did that towards Tennessee earlier this 12 months when he caught all 9 of his targets for 155 yards. The Colts and Titans might be enjoying a de facto playoff recreation, and we anticipate Hilton to return up huge.

​WEEK 17 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings

WR Robert Foster, Payments vs. Dolphins ($13). Foster was a preferred sleeper choose final week coming off back-to-back 100-yard video games, however the Pats held him in verify (4-52). Nonetheless, it is price noting Foster had a decent seven targets, and he continues to appear like Buffalo’s No. 1 receiver. The Dolphins go protection confirmed up final week, however it had been struggling within the three video games prior (six WR touchdowns allowed, together with two to Buffalo’s Zay Jones in Week 13). Xavien Howard’s knee harm actually is not serving to, and we anticipate Buffalo to return out with way more life than Miami this week.

TE Zach Ertz, Eagles @ Redskins ($23). As a lot as we would like Travis Kelce right here, he is $eight greater than Ertz however solely affords a barely increased ceiling. Ertz put up 9 catches and 83 yards towards the Redskins in Week 13, and he ought to see regular work once more because the Eagles depart all of it on the sphere.

FLEX DaeSean Hamilton, Broncos vs. Chargers ($12). Hamilton and Tim Patrick are mainly a coin flip, however we’ll take Hamilton solely primarily based on him seeing extra targets in Week 15. With each being filth low cost but additionally extremely focused and gifted, we’re prepared to gamble on one regardless of a so-so matchup.

D/ST Philadelphia Eagles @ Redskins ($11). Getting a determined D/ST enjoying towards Josh Johnson for $1 above the minimal appears like stealing. Philadelphia will doubtless be tremendous chalky, however we’ll take the bait.
