Whether you’re in the fantasy football Super Bowl, playing in the consolation bracket, or filling out DFS lineups, here are Week 17’s top matchups.
It’s the final week of the fantasy football season, and here’s to hoping you’ve made the Super Bowl in your league! If not — no worries. There are plenty of other alternatives to keep entertained on gamedays such as DraftKings or FanDuel. Regardless, there are plenty of matchups to exploit this week. Let’s get into it.
Best matchups for fantasy football Week 17
5. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys (vs. TEN)
Dak Prescott was the overall QB1 last week, leading the Cowboys to a huge win and leading plenty of fantasy teams to the promised land. His 347 yards and three touchdowns came at a crucial point for the Cowboys as they secured a big win over the NFC-leading Philadelphia Eagles. For fantasy purposes, Prescott has been somewhat inconsistent.
Since his return from injury in Week 7, Prescott hasn’t finished lower than the QB18 in any week. He’s had six top-10 finishes, which is good for most starting-caliber fantasy quarterbacks. His problem has been the interceptions, as he’s thrown at least one in all but two games since his return from injury.
Prescott’s matchup against the Tennessee Titans comes at a perfect time for fantasy managers, as they allow the third-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks and have been sputtering on all cylinders as of late. Prescott has top-three upside yet again this week.
