Welcome to the DFS Playbook for NFL Week 17!

I could get nostalgic here and start lamenting over the end of the NFL regular season and what a great year it was for the DFS Playbook, but we don't need that. It has definitely been a fun season. Lucrative too. But we're not done yet. Week 17 is a great opportunity to finish the regular season on a high note and the first two weeks of the NFL playoffs are great for DFS as well. So we still have some work to do.

The key to this week is using players who have something to play for. The Eagles and Titans are both in a "win and you're in" situation so you know those players are looking to produce. You've got players who are looking to reach statistical milestones on the year. Maybe it's their first 1,000-yard season or they have a clause in their contract that dictates a bonus at 100 receptions. Whatever the case may be, you're going to want to invest in those players. Conversely, it's also about avoiding those who have nothing to play for this week. The Ravens, Vikings and Bills have no reason to put their starters out onto the field. They cannot improve their playoff seeding and there is no reason to put anyone in harm's way before the playoffs begin. We're also being told by Sean McVay that he could hold back a number of his starters as this is a meaningless game for them. If you catch any news between now and kickoff tomorrow, be sure to pay attention as the last thing you want is to invest in a player only to see him sit out the entire second half. 

So with all that being said, let's take a look at who we like for DFS this week.
