Fanduel Week 17
Fanduel Week 17 is here! The season is going by fast. The Dolphins will play on the main Fanduel this Sunday which features 12 total games. With no Tua in the lineup due to a concussion, we can expect to see Teddy Bridgewater starting. It should be an interesting slate to pick a part for the Dolphins and all the other teams as well.
Quarterbacks for Fanduel Week 17
Teddy Bridgewater is just $6,100 on Fanduel, a great price. Jarrett Stidham is the only other quarterback at a price that low who is starting in week 17. It seems that Fanduel did not anticipate Bridgewater to be the starter based on his price tag. With weapons like Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, Bridgewater could have a big game against the Patriots who have been tough on opposing offenses.
Other quarterbacks to look at with fair prices this week are Russell Wilson and Mike White. Wilson is just $6,900 and had his best fantasy game of the season against Kansas City the last time they played them. White gets to play Seattle and has had some huge games this year when starting. A higher priced quarterback that could have a massive game is Justin Fields at $8,400 playing the Lions. Last game against Detroit Fields had 40.38 Fanduel points. Week 17 happens to fall when the year long players of fantasy are playing for their championships.
The Patriots have the second-best run defense in the NFL, which does not bode well for Raheem Mostert or Jeff Wilson. Last week these two Miami running backs were back to another split workload that also will limit how effective they can be as Fanduel plays. Mostert had eight carries and Wilson had nine. They are fairly priced at $6,600 and $6,000 with Wilson being the cheaper option. Wilson would probably be the Miami back to take a chance on if going that route.
The Buccaneers seemed determined last week to get back to their ground game. Leonard Fournette had 29 total touches and at just $7,000 on Fanduel could be a great option against Carolina. A cheaper potential play is Royce Freeman who saw 16 carries last week for Houston. This week they face Jacksonville and he could get called on a lot again at just $5,900. He makes for some great value unless we hear that his workload may be significantly reduced this week as he did not do much with those carries last week.
Wide Receivers that might get open in Week 17 of Fanduel
It was the second good game in a row for Jaylen Waddle after he had four below average games heading into week 15. Waddle was able to take another pass for a long touchdown and scored 22.8 Fanduel points against Green Bay. Tyreek Hill only saw six targets. That was the second-least amount he has seen all season. Hill was still able to eclipse 100 yards though. This week without Tua these two should still produce but they are expensive as always. More options for WR in Fanduel Week 17 are listed below.
Playing low-owned players is very important in tournaments on Fanduel. A player who may be low owned due to poor recent play is Davante Adams. His price is still $8,500 and that poor play as of late could scare some people off as well as Derek Carr being benched. It seems like a great opportunity to play him when not many other people will be hoping that the backup Jarrett Stidham tries to get it to possibly the best wide receiver in the NFL a ton.
Mike Gesicki caught one pass last week for 24 yards. He has now not had more than one catch in his last five games as he had two catches on November 13th against Cleveland. He can be left out of your lineups at $4,700 on a big slate of games.
Dallas Goedert and Evan Engram make for two great plays and they are $6,000 and $5,800 respectively. Which makes them good, affordable options at tight end. Play one of them or one of the top-priced guys, Travis Kelce or George Kittle, if you have the salary to do so.
Defense for Faduel Week 17
The Patriots don’t give up a lot of points but they also don’t score a ton of points so it could not be the worst decision to play Miami’s defense this week at just $4,100. It has been a while since Miami has made a big play on defense though and they haven’t scored more than six Fanduel points in their last four games.
A cheaper option could be to go with Arizona who plays a struggling Falcons team at just $3,900. The 49ers against the Raiders without Carr at $5,000 might be worth the bigger investment. Good luck in Week 17 of Fanduel!
