Week 17 FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for daily fantasy football GPP tournaments

Week 17 is just an odd week in the NFL, and it's often the case in the DFS too. We're still back with a final FanDuel tournament roster for this season, but this week there are more unknowns than ever. Some teams may choose to sit player while others pursue milestones. Most of the time, it is best to rely on players who will definitely be playing in meaningful games.

So our line-up starts with a rams stack around quarterback John Wolford and receiver Robert Woods. With Jared Goff (thumb), Los Angeles is a must-have against a cardinal defense that can be beaten. Playing Wolford enables studs in the rest of our lineup. If that choice works, we could have a great week 17 looking at.

FanDuel chooses week 17: NFL DFS line-up for tournaments

QB John Wolford, Rams v Cardinals ($ 6,500)

Jared Goff is out and we're doing a little bit of the dark with Wolford, who was in the AAF but didn't snap an NFL snapshot. Fortunately, he faces a defense that only three touchdown passes to C.J. Beathard allowed, and Wolford has better weapons to work with in a must-win game for the Rams. The discount here is going to be big for the rest of our line-up, and Sean McVay should have a good enough game plan for Wolford to succeed.

RB Derrick Henry, Titans @ Texans ($ 10,200)

Henry makes it into both our cash and tournament roster for FanDuel this week. He is 223 yards from 2,000 and plays in a must-win game for Tennessee. That suggests a potentially big outing for the retreating workhorse, which seems to get better and better late in the season as its defenses wear out.

WEEK 17 DFS CASH LINEUPS: DraftKings | FanDuel

RB Jonathan Taylor, Colts v Jaguars ($ 8,400)

The Colts need a win and help to get to the playoffs. Taylor should be expected as much as never before this week, and it will be against a defense that earns RBs the fourth most fantasy points this season. Cross your fingers that Nyheim Hines isn't too annoying this week.

WR Robert Woods, Rams v Cardinals ($ 6,800)

Here is our stack with Wolford. The first time these teams played, Woods was attacked 11 times and captured 10 times. He makes sense as a trusted target for the new LA quarterback, and he's proven earlier this year that Arizona can't really protect him.

WEEK 17 DFS TOURNAMENT LINEUPS: DraftKings

WR Emmanuel Sanders, Saints @ Panthers ($ 6,200)

This was supposed to go to Cooper Kupp for a trio stack with Wolford, but COVID-19 prevented that. Instead, we turned to Sanders. The Saints can still get number 1 in the NFC and a goodbye with a win and a little help. So expect Sanders to be an important part of the Carolina game plan.

WR Tyler Lockett, Seahawks at 49ers ($ 6,500)

As the 49ers try to stop DK Metcalf, Lockett will finally break out of a funk in the second half and have a big game to get Seattle to its best possible playoff seed. The Seahawks have a goodbye left so they should go full throttle. Lockett caught four passes when Seattle first played San Francisco and his holdings should be small due to his recent struggles. We're betting on a breakout game here and it's an opportunity well worth taking.

WEEK 17 PPR RANKING:
Quarterback | Run back | Wide receiver | Narrow end | D / ST | Kicker

TE Mike Gesicki, Dolphins @ Bills ($ 5,900)

It's a must see for the Dolphins, and Gesicki should be the center of the action if Miami fits. Buffalo put a close end to the seventh-highest FD points this season. If Ryan Fitzpatrick comes back into the game with relief, it would probably be even better for Gesicki.

FLEX Wayne Gallman, Giants vs Cowboys ($ 5,700)

The Giants give themselves a chance at the NFC East Crown with a win, and running Gallman sounds better at this point than letting Daniel Jones throw too much. It's been a quiet stretch for Gallman lately because of New York's early deficits, but this is the place to be in a huge game. The cowboys are also a bottom 10 run defense.

WEEK 17 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Run back | Wide receiver | Narrow end | D / ST | Kicker

DEF Los Angeles Chargers @ Chiefs ($ 3,500)

We're counting on a few things that are going right here. First, the Chiefs shouldn't be playing their bolts for this entire game after winning AFC number 1 a week ago. Second, LA slowed down Patrick Mahomes and his company when they first met. And third, hopefully everyone will refrain from playing the Chargers D / ST given the matchup without considering the context. When all of these come together, LA could put together a solid game for a low price.
