The Sunday Blitz – FanDuel Week 17

Fantasy Sharks is teaming up with FanDuel for Week 17! Get involved in one of the fastest growing segments in fantasy – daily games! The prize pool continues to grow! Click the link below to sign up and be sure to check out the full breakdown of Week 17 to help you set your lineup.


Sign Up Here – $300,000 Sunday Bomb

The entry fee is $25 and first place takes home $25,000!

Week 17

The standard salary cap is $60,000. The familiar names and studs will put a dent in your salary cap so you will need to find some value picks along the way. This contest includes only the Sunday games so you’ll have until 1pm kickoff when rosters lock to sign up.

Week 17 always offers some uncertainty from resting players to battles for seeding to players that are physically on the field, but mentally have already mailed it in. This is what makes daily fantasy so unique as you can take advantage of some of these plays in Fanduel this week!

QUARTERBACK

Cam Newton
($8,500) can use his legs to rack up points and his price is not that far out of reach this week. If you can find some gems in other parts of your lineup, you will be able to get Cam in your lineup without any problems.


Jay Cutler ($7,700) is another solid option, but will likely earn you just four points for scores since they will be through the air.

RUNNING BACKS

Matt Forte
($8,500) should rebound from his quiet game Sunday night in Philadelphia.
Eddie Lacy ($8,400) has a great matchup if he can suit up for the showdown in Chicago. Forte is likely the safer pick since Lacy is nursing an injury. You rarely see
Adrian
Peterson‘s price ($7,900) dip below $8K, but his matchup and injury concerns will cause that.

Bargains
:

LeGarrette Blount
– $4,500 – Blount looks to be the lead dog, but can you really ever trust New England’s backfield?

Knile Davis
– $4,500 – He is likely to get the work for three quarters, but can you really trust him to put up many points around a 2nd team offense? However, his price may be worth the risk.

I would pair a top RB like Matt Forte with a roll of the dice in
Knile Davis

.

WIDE RECEIVERS

You can’t go wrong with a Bears’ WR in the winner-take-all game in Chicago.
Brandon
Marshall ($8,500) and
Alshon Jeffery ($8,000) are top ten WR plays this week.
Antonio Brown at $7,600 is a great value, especially if

Joe Haden

sits for the season finale.
Julian Edelman continues to be reliable and is just $6,700 again.
DeSean
Jackson was shut down against Dallas last time out, but this Eagles offense is totally different in Week 17. He tends to be too hit or miss, though, and at $7,800, you cannot afford a single digit fantasy effort.
Keenan Allen ($6,600) has scored 5 TDs in his last three games, but has just 8 catches for 114 yards during that span.

TIGHT ENDS

Greg Olsen
($5,400) would be in the top-5 for my tight ends plays this week and he comes at a very affordable price.
Charles Clay ($5,300) is $100 cheaper, but would be another nice play against the Jets. The Eagle TE’s are too risky, but
Brent Celek ($4,500) has been on the field more of late.

KICKERS & DEFENSES

Pick your poison at the kicker position in the $5,000 price range:

Choice:
Blair Walsh

– $5,000

Alternatives at $5K
:
Robbie Gould

,
Mason Crosby

,
Steven Hauschka

As for defenses, this one sticks out as the easiest pick of the week:

Choice: Dolphins v NYJ – $5,000

Good luck in Week 17!
