DFS: Plays of the Week – Week 17


  1. Justin Herbert $7600 at Kansas City Chiefs (18th)
  2. Ryan Tannehill $8200 at Houston Texans (22nd)
  3. Philip Rivers $7300 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (30th)
  4. Drew Lock $6800 vs. Las Vegas Raiders (24th)
  5. Lamar Jackson $9000 at Cincinnati Bengals (12th)
  6. Tom Brady $8400 vs. Atlanta Falcons (32nd)
  7. Kirk Cousins $7700 at Detroit Lions (31st)
  8. Baker Mayfield $7000 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (2nd)
  9. Teddy Bridgewater $6900 vs. New Orleans Saints (14th)
  10. Drew Brees $7400 at Carolina Panthers (16th)

Skinny: With the Kansas City Chiefs resting their starters in Week #17, it is wise to take advantage of the Los Angeles Chargers, and in particular, Justin Herbert in this matchup…I have to imagine that the Chargers want to build some momentum behind their rookie signal caller, so this should lead to a big day for Justin Herbert this Sunday…with an AFC South title on the line on Sunday, I have to imagine that the Tennessee Titans find a way to take advantage of the horrendous Houston Texans defense and Ryan Tannehill will be one of the primary beneficiaries…the Colts need some help to get into the playoffs, but also have to take care of their own business against a Jaguars team that have the 2021 NFL Draft #1 overall pick sewed up…Philip Rivers should have a very nice day against the 30th ranked Jags defense.


  1. Derrick Henry $10,200 at Houston Texans (32nd)
  2. Jonathan Taylor $8400 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (29th)
  3. David Montgomery $8200 vs. Green Bay Packers (28th)
  4. Alvin Kamara $9400 at Carolina Panthers (24th)
  5. Nick Chubb $8100 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (2nd)
  6. Austin Ekeler $7700 at Kansas City Chiefs (18th)
  7. Aaron Jones $8000 at Chicago Bears (9th)
  8. Ezekiel Elliott $6500 at New York Giants (23rd)
  9. Malcolm Brown $5600 vs. Arizona Cardinals (19th)
  10. D’Andre Swift $7500 vs. Minnesota Vikings (27th)

Skinny: Derrick Henry is going to go ham on Sunday…the Titans never really got going against Green Bay on Sunday Night…they will not have the same issue this Sunday… as Derrick Henry is going to carry the Titans on his back to a AFC South division crown…Jonathan Taylor continues to play magnificently down the stretch, there’s no reason to hop off of him now….you can say the exact same thing for David Montgomery of the Bears…Chicago is playing for the playoff lives on Sunday, so anticipate a heavy dose of Montgomery.
