FanDuel and DraftKings Opportunity Scores: Week 17

Opportunity, opportunity, opportunity — that’s what fantasy football is all about. Each week I aggregate projections from around the internet and find the best DFS values from a dollar-per-opportunity perspective.With the NFL playoff picture mostly settled, sifting through the Week 17 landscape in DFS is a different process than usual. First you need to sift out the teams that are sitting starters (Eagles, Rams, Chiefs, Steelers) and then there are teams that are primarily looking to get out of Week 17 with a healthy squad (Patriots, Jaguars, Vikings, Panthers). I’m immediately downgrading most players on those offenses. Then, you have a team that is tanking for a better draft pick (Giants) and other teams that aren’t looking too motivated (Cowboys, Jets, Texans). The teams you know will be giving 100 percent for a full four quarters are the Saints, Falcons, Seahawks, Ravens, Titans, Chargers, and Bills. Again, I’m scoring my picks whether they hit value on either site which is ~2.5x on DraftKings and ~2x on FanDuel. Last Week DraftKings: 3-3 (83-69 overall) FanDuel: 3-3 (60-66 overall) You can check out the season primer for a brief description of what to expect. I’ll be updating the Google Doc (see link below) every Friday for the article and then again late Saturday to adjust for any injury news. Be sure to check it out before you finalize your lineups. Now, let’s get to the Week 17 plays!
