START/BENCH: Week 17

QB_Kirk_Cousins_WAS_1

Fresh off a solid effort against Denver, Cousins closes the season against a Giants team allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in 2017. And despite the fact that 7-8 Washington has been eliminated from playoff contention, head coach Jay Gruden told the Associated Press there’s been no thought of sitting the free agent to be.

START/BENCH: Week 16

QB_Ben_Roethlisberger_PIT_1

The Steelers will be looking to take out the frustrations for that loss on the Houston Texans on Christmas night – the same Houston Texans who have given up the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in 2017.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 16

LB_Nick_Kwiatkoski_CHI_1

Kwiatkoski and Chicago might actually get a win this Sunday – Chicago plays winless Cleveland at Soldier Field. Cleveland may be a dumpster fire, but it has been giving up fantasy points to linebackers in bunches all season long.

START/BENCH: Week 15

RB_Kenyan_Drake_MIA_1

Drake has emerged as a featured back for the Dolphins and could be a hot fantasy commodity in 2018. He just scorched the Patriots for almost 200 total yards and draws a Bills team this week allowing the most fantasy points per game to running backs.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 15

LB Jarrad Davis DET

The reduction in snaps wasn’t all that substantial (Jarrad Davis was on the field for 84 percent of Detroit’s snaps against Tampa Bay) and the rookie’s coming off his best game in ages – a nine-tackle effort with a sack and forced fumble in the win over Tampa Bay.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 14 IDP Start/Sit

LB_Preston_Brown_BUF_1

On paper, this game appears winnable for the Bills – or at least it did while it looked like Nathan Peterman would be safely on the sidelines. However, from IDP perspective it's an appealing matchup for both Brown and Ramon Humber – no team in the National Football League has surrendered more fantasy points to linebackers in 2017 than the Colts.

START/BENCH: Week 14

RB_Frank_Gore_IND_1

Hard though it may be to believe, Gore's on pace to top 1,000 total yards for the 35th straight season and is actually coming off a game in which he averaged 4.7 yards a carry against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 14

LB L.J. Fort PIT

Matakevich went down in the third quarter with an arm/shoulder injury that also appeared serious – serious enough that he was helped to the locker room with a doctor holding the arm and did not return. As things stand right now he looks unlikely to play in Week 14, leaving little-used third-year pro L.J. Fort as the last man standing.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 13 IDP Start/Sit

LB_Tahir_Whitehead_DET_1

Tahir Whitehead may have missed a few tackles along the way, but he's been making them in bunches of late – the 27-year-old has averaged 10 total tackles a game over the last three weeks and ranks sixth in fantasy points among linebackers over that span.

START/BENCH: Week 13

QB_Marcus_Mariota_TEN_1

It's a big ask for fantasy owners to trust a quarterback with a minus-three touchdown to interception this season in a must-win game – especially when you consider that over the last two weeks Marcus Mariota is 19th among fantasy quarterbacks in Sharks League Scoring.
