Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 17 Rankings
Patrick Mahomes Note
Patrick Mahomes photo 1. Patrick Mahomes KC (vs . LAC)
Mahomes is our overall QB1 in an important game against a weak Chargers defense.
8 weeks ago
Drew Brees Note
Drew Brees photo 2. Drew Brees NO (at CAR)
The Saints are fighting for a first-round bye, so look for this Saints offense to come out and pick apart this Carolina defense. Brees is an easy QB1 option this week.
9 weeks ago
Jameis Winston Note
Jameis Winston photo 3. Jameis Winston TB (vs . ATL)
With Winston looking for a big payday this offseason, he will be motivated to end the season on a high note versus a defense that has been middle of the road against QBs over the past five weeks. Given this offense's pass-heavy scheme, Winston remains a QB1 this week.
9 weeks ago
Matt Ryan Note
Matt Ryan photo 4. Matt Ryan ATL (at TB)
Tampa has been much better against QBs recently, but this is still a terrible pass defense. Even if Ryan was out there with only Julio, I think he could pass for 200 yards. He is a QB1 this week.
9 weeks ago
Dak Prescott Note
Dak Prescott photo 5. Dak Prescott DAL (vs . WAS)
Dak certainly didn't look 100% last week, but this is likely his last chance to earn whatever amount of money he gets offered this offseason. Washington has allowed the third-most fantasy points to QBs over the past five weeks, and Dak is a QB1 option this week.
9 weeks ago
Aaron Rodgers Note
Aaron Rodgers photo 6. Aaron Rodgers GB (at DET)
This Detroit defense has been bad and the Packers need to win in order to solidify a bye next week. These stakes puts Rodgers on the QB1 radar, though he is towards the bottom of this tier, based on how well Green Bay is running the ball.
9 weeks ago
Ryan Tannehill Note
Ryan Tannehill photo 7. Ryan Tannehill TEN (at HOU)
Tannehill is a strong QB1 in a crucial game against a weak Texans pass defense.
8 weeks ago
Carson Wentz Note
Carson Wentz photo 8. Carson Wentz PHI (at NYG)
The Giants have surrendered the points points to QBs over the past five weeks, but the Eagles don't have much of a receiving corps. An offense that was already riddled with injuries will also be missing Zach Ertz this week. The matchup is great, but the lack of weapons makes Wentz a low end QB1.
9 weeks ago
Tom Brady Note
Tom Brady photo 9. Tom Brady NE (vs . MIA)
The Patriots are playing for their playoff positioning, so Brady is a low-end QB1 in a good matchup.
8 weeks ago
Russell Wilson Note
Russell Wilson photo 10. Russell Wilson SEA (vs . SF)
Surprisingly enough, the 49ers have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to QBs over the past five weeks, so this isn't as scary of a matchup as it initially seems. Still, if the Seahawks are unable to run the ball with their new group of RBs, this offense will have to completely change it's identity, which is tough to do at this point in the season. It's still Russell Wilson, so the upside is there, but he is a fringe QB1 this week.
9 weeks ago
Daniel Jones Note
Daniel Jones photo 11. Daniel Jones NYG (vs . PHI)
Daniel Jones had a five-touchdown performance last week, and now he faces a Philly secondary that has really struggled at times this year. The upside is sky high, and Jones is a fringe QB1 for this week.
9 weeks ago
Jimmy Garoppolo Note
Jimmy Garoppolo photo 12. Jimmy Garoppolo SF (at SEA)
Seattle has been middle of the road against QBs over the past five weeks and Jimmy G has been okay, but not great for the 49ers recently, He shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a QB2 with upside.
9 weeks ago
Jared Goff Note
Jared Goff photo 13. Jared Goff LAR (vs . ARI)
Goff put up over 400 yards against this defense the first time around. Now, he is playing at home and I'm sure he would like to end the season on a high note. With Arizona struggling to get a consistent pass rush, Goff should have a good day, making him a QB1.
9 weeks ago
Andy Dalton Note
Andy Dalton photo 14. Andy Dalton CIN (vs . CLE)
Dalton is a strong QB2 in a good matchup with the Browns in what could be his last game as a Bengal.
8 weeks ago
Baker Mayfield Note
Baker Mayfield photo 15. Baker Mayfield CLE (at CIN)
Mayfield is a strong QB2 against a weak Bengals defense.
8 weeks ago
Gardner Minshew II Note
Gardner Minshew II photo 16. Gardner Minshew II JAC (vs . IND)
Minshew is a decent QB2 option, but we'd advise looking elsewhere.
8 weeks ago
Jacoby Brissett Note
Jacoby Brissett photo 17. Jacoby Brissett IND (at JAC)
Brissett is a decent QB2 option with low-upside in Week 17.
8 weeks ago
Philip Rivers Note
Philip Rivers photo 18. Philip Rivers FA (BYE)
Rivers is a risky QB2 option against a Chiefs defense where he should be throwing, though for Rivers that likely means more turnovers.
8 weeks ago
Drew Lock Note
Drew Lock photo 19. Drew Lock DEN (vs . OAK)
Lock is an interesting streaming option against a very weak Raiders defense. Consider him a QB2.
8 weeks ago
Mitch Trubisky Note
Mitch Trubisky photo 20. Mitch Trubisky CHI (at MIN)
This Vikings defense is not what it used to be, and they will likely be resting some of their starters on top of it. It's a great opportunity for Trubisky to end the season on a high note, and he is a QB2 this week with upside.
9 weeks ago
Ryan Fitzpatrick Note
Ryan Fitzpatrick photo 21. Ryan Fitzpatrick MIA (at NE)
Derek Carr Note
Derek Carr photo 22. Derek Carr OAK (at DEN)
Sam Darnold Note
Sam Darnold photo 23. Sam Darnold NYJ (at BUF)
Case Keenum Note
Case Keenum photo 24. Case Keenum WAS (at DAL)
With Dwayne Haskins out with an ankle injury, Case Keenum is back at starter for Washington. Dallas has been bottom-10 against QBs over the past five weeks, putting Keenum in the QB2 conversation this week.
9 weeks ago
Robert Griffin Note
Robert Griffin photo 25. Robert Griffin BAL (vs . PIT)
Kyler Murray Note
Kyler Murray photo 26. Kyler Murray ARI (at LAR)
Murray is using his legs again, but this passing offense continues to struggle. Even if he plays, he is only a QB2.
9 weeks ago
Deshaun Watson Note
Deshaun Watson photo 27. Deshaun Watson HOU (vs . TEN)
David Blough Note
David Blough photo 28. David Blough DET (vs . GB)
David Blough continues to get sacked and continues to make mistakes. That isn't expected to change this week, facing a strong pass rush from the Packers. Avoid the Lions QB this week.
9 weeks ago
Will Grier Note
Will Grier photo 29. Will Grier CAR (vs . NO)
Grier did not look good in his debut last week, and there isn't much to look forward to with DJ Moore out this week. There is no need to play Grier.
9 weeks ago
Devlin Hodges Note
Devlin Hodges photo 30. Devlin Hodges PIT (at BAL)
Josh Allen Note
Josh Allen photo 31. Josh Allen BUF (vs . NYJ)
AJ McCarron Note
AJ McCarron photo 32. AJ McCarron HOU (vs . TEN)
Matt Barkley Note
Matt Barkley photo 33. Matt Barkley BUF (vs . NYJ)
Kirk Cousins Note
Kirk Cousins photo 34. Kirk Cousins MIN (vs . CHI)
The Vikings are expected to use Week 17 as their bye week, with Kirk Cousins likely to sit. This makes Sean Mannion the starter for Minnesota Sunday.
9 weeks ago
Brett Hundley Note
Brett Hundley photo 35. Brett Hundley ARI (at LAR)
Sean Mannion Note
Sean Mannion photo 36. Sean Mannion MIN (vs . CHI)
With Kirk Cousins reportedly sitting, Sean Mannion makes the start against the Bears defense. There is not reason to play him this week.
9 weeks ago
Taysom Hill Note
Taysom Hill photo 37. Taysom Hill NO (at CAR)
Blake Bortles Note
Blake Bortles photo 38. Blake Bortles LAR (vs . ARI)
