NFL DFS RB Recommendations Week 17

By Danny Moreno - 5 years ago in NFL News

There is one thing that just about every daily fantasy fan has in common at this time of year— the need to win some money to pay off some holiday bills. But it is a little trickier picking out a roster for the final week of the regular season. Who is going to play? Who is going to sit? Who has something to play for?

Pick the right guys, and you could take advantage of the time of year and earn some holiday cash. But who are the right guys?

How about some DFS RB Recommendations?

Todd Gurley is certainly one guy to avoid. Yes, he may have been the key to you winning in previous weeks, but this week he will be resting his knee for the playoffs. Dallas rarely plays starters if they have a playoff spot locked up. So, don’t expect to see Ezekiel Elliott for long (if at all).

There are several guys on teams with something to play for that should have productive weeks:

•    Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings: He has been playing very well of late, and the Vikings are in a must-win situation. Of course, the Bears have one of the toughest run defenses in the league. While Bears HC Matt Nagy has said guys are not going to be rested, that can change really easy.
•    Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens are going to play the most motivated eliminated team in the league, the Cleveland Browns. But they are not lacking in motivation either. The better Edwards plays now, the better his future will play out.
•    Saquon Barkley, New York Giants: The Cowboys are going to rest guys, and Barkley is going to want to lock down the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
•    C.J. Anderson, Los Angeles Rams: He is perhaps the most motivated player in the NFL this week. If he runs well again, he increases his chances of making it onto a roster next season. Playing a weak defensive team like the 49ers will certainly help.

Week 17 DFS RB recommendations

Best Bet?

Go with Anderson and Barkley and maybe even Edwards as your flex. All three are in a position to have good days.
