Fantasy Football: Strong Starts Week 17

Start Recommendations for week 17


  • Justin Herbert, Chargers (vs. LAR). Herbert has failed to throw a touchdown pass in each of the last two games he has played, but he is due for a breakout game against the Rams in which he scores at least two touchdowns.
  • Lions quarterback Jared Goff (vs. CHI). Goff has returned to his hometown and will play a role in the other high-scoring matchup that will take place in the NFC North.
  • Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (vs. CAR). The previous week, Brady and the passing game struggled on the road, but this week, with the division on the line, Brady will be at his best, throwing for at least 250 yards and scoring two touchdowns.
  • The 49ers’ Brock Purdy (at LV). The only thing Joe Purdy does is throw for at least two touchdowns in each game, and he does it again in a duel that fans of San Francisco will enjoy seeing on the road.
  • Teddy Bridgewater, the quarterback for the Dolphins (at NE). As the replacement quarterback for a concussed Tua Tagovailoa in a crucial road game against a pass defense that is already vulnerable, he has a solid plan in place and terrific weapons at his disposal.
  • Mike White, Jets (at SEA). He is back in the starting lineup, and despite the fact that this position is challenging to play on the road, he has the ability to attack the Seahawks for productive runs inside.
  • AJ Dillon, Packers (vs. MIN). He is seeing a significant increase in playing time as the game nears its conclusion, and the Pack will continue to utilize him in important situations inside their own stadium.
  • Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon, both of the Chiefs (vs. DEN). The Broncos’ run defense has completely disintegrated, and the game script is going to enable both backs perform at a high level once more.
  • Buccaneers Leonard Fournette and Rachad White’s names are included here (vs. CAR). They were both productive for the Buccaneers last week, with the latter scoring a touchdown, and the team will continue to rely on them while they are playing at home.
  • Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift, both of the Lions (vs. CHI). Both should get back on track against a defense that is giving up pretty much everything as long as Williams (who has a leg injury) continues to play. They will be necessary for the Lions to complete drives and put an end to things.
  • D.J. Moore, player with the Panthers (vs. TB). It is now apparent that Sam Darnold is their No. 1 quarterback, so he has been reheated and can focus on playing off of shorter routes and red-zone work.
  • Amari Cooper, player with the Browns (at WAS). Deshaun Watson has regained his self-assurance, and it shows in the way he is able to perform effectively in this matchup inside and out.
  • Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers (at LV). The Raiders’ outside cornerbacks are unable to keep him contained.
  • Courtland Sutton, who plays for the Broncos (at KC). The Chiefs will have just as much problems defending Sutton as they had the previous week when they faced DK Metcalf, as Sutton did not play in the first game between these two teams.
  • Allen Lazard, Packers (vs. MIN). It does not appear like Christian Watson will make a full recovery from his hip injury, therefore Lazard will need to be re-used in an important game.
  • George Pickens, Steelers (at BAL). Now that Kenny Pickett is healthy again, playing him against this secondary, which will most likely be without Marcus Peters (calf), is the more tempting option.
  • Adam Thielen, Vikings (at GB). Every time they play each other, there is a strong chance that he will score a goal.
