NFL DFS WR Recommendations Week 17
This is one of those weeks where the right wide receivers can make a huge difference for your daily fantasy team. Yes, they can every week. But this week, there will be guys that will be trying to dominate their opponents in spectacular fashion this week. Some will because they are trying to make the postseason.
Others just want to make a lasting impression in their last game of the season. But others are going to be resting for the playoffs. So—who should you start?
How about some DFS WR Recommendations?
You can definitely sit Odell Beckham Jr.—in case you didn’t already know that. There is no reason to think he’ll come back now with nothing on the line. Michael Thomas has been fantastic all season, but there is no reason the Saints will play him against Carolina.
But several guys could very well have big days:
• DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans: Yes, he has a bum ankle, and the Jags have a good pass defense. But the Texans are going to be trying to win the division. To do so, Hopkins has to have a big day.
• Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers: The best wide receiver in the NFL is going to do his part against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL to give them a shot at the postseason.
• Robert Foster, Buffalo Bills: If you are looking for a cheap option with upside, take Foster. Josh Allen is looking to get better and will be trying to put his best foot forward as he has in recent weeks. That means throwing to Foster early and often.
• Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons: It is not unusual for young guys to take center stage for non-playoff bound teams in Week 17. Ridley has had some great weeks this season and could have another one against a bad Tampa Bay defense.
If you can afford to, take Hopkins and Brown. But if you can’t, roll with Hopkins, Foster, and Ridley. All three will be in a position to have great days—especially Hopkins. Should one of the other two end up having mediocre outings, Hopkins could do well enough to make up for it.
