2017 Fantasy Football: FanDuel Picks





FanDuel Picks

You can enter the FanDuel Sunday Million this week, with $1 million in prizes, including $250,000 to first overall!

If you sign up for FanDuel using the link (or using promo code WALTER2017), you can play in the Sunday Million for free with your first deposit!






Here's the FanDuel lineup I'm going with this week:






I considered Case Keenum with his two receivers, but then I had enough money to pay for Tom Brady. I still like the two Minnesota wideouts, however.

I'm pairing Brady with James White and Rob Gronkowski, as the Jaguars have trouble with pass-catching running backs and tight ends.

I don't like Jay Ajayi very much, but none of the other running back options excited me.



Good luck to those of you who are playing this weekend! Once again, to play for free in the Sunday Million, click on the link to FanDuel, or sign up using promo code WALTER2017.


Chet's FanDuel Picks:






With just two games on the Championship slate, you'll really need to decide on how you think these games will play out as a whole and pick your lineup accordingly. For the Jacksonville/New England game, I believe the Patriots win, but that we won't see the scoring we saw last week against Pittsburgh. I still want Patriots players, as I think they'll be more productive than Jacksonville and Philadelphia players, but I'm finding it difficult to get Brady in lineups that I like. That will push me down to Case Keenum, who I like more than Blake Bortles and Nick Foles, and who is cheap enough for me to put together a stronger overall team.

The Vikings are more talented than the Eagles with Nick Foles at the helm, but this game should be close. The Eagles' run defense is their strength, while their cornerbacks are their weakness. Not a huge weakness, but with just four teams remaining, I would rather the Vikings to attack through the air than on the ground or sea, or whatever Vikings would do if they still existed.

Jacksonville's defense can slow down New England's offense, but the Jaguars will have trouble shutting the Patriots down, especially now that Dion Lewis is playing so well and adds an extra dimension to their offense. New England will likely get Rex Burkhead back this week, but Lewis has done well enough and gained enough trust to be considered a safe bet this week, especially in comparison to all the running backs besides Leonard Fournette, who continues to play banged up and costs a bit too much for me to fit on my team.

Jerick McKinnon is always a wild card, but I don't see Latavius Murray doing that well between the tackles, which should push more work to McKinnon through the air. And through the air is where Philadelphia is most susceptible to running backs, as the Eagles allowed 91 receptions for 653 yards and five touchdowns to running backs in the receiving game. That ranks them 11th in receptions and second in touchdowns.

If I could pay up for Adam Thielen, I would, but as it is, I'm going to save some money here with Chris Hogan. Hogan didn't get the targets last week, but he did get one in the end zone that resulted in a touchdown, and that's really his specialty. Without the big targets, he will remain risky, but that risk still has a good shot of a touchdown built in.

Stefon Diggs is probably still behind Thielen in upside, but I like Diggs going up against the Eagles' outside cornerbacks rather than their slot defense, which has been strong for the most part. Diggs has a good price for his possibilities this weekend, and I'll likely have him on most of my teams.

Danny Amendola went off last week, and I expect him to again be a big part of New England's offense, as he is a handful to cover in short spaces, even for the Jaguars' lock-down cornerbacks.

Jacksonville had trouble with Vance McDonald last week and everyone has trouble against Rob Gronkowski. It remains to be seen just how Jacksonville will try to stop Gronkowski, but he's a beast and there aren't a lot of No. 1 fantasy players left at their position left in the playoffs.




I don't feel great about any one kicker this week, but I had the cash for Gostkowski, so I grabbed him. I expect the Jaguars will force the Patriots to kick more field goals than they'd like.

Minnesota's defense is legitimate, and Nick Foles, though sometimes a good enough quarterback, is going to have trouble against the Vikings.
