The NFL regular season is winding down, and there are only a couple weeks left to enter full DraftKings lineups. Check out this week’s top picks for DFS.
It’s crazy to think there are only two more regular season games in the NFL season. After the season, DraftKings lineups will change when the playoffs start. There are only two more weeks of traditional lineups. This week’s lineup features tons of top-end fantasy talent. Let’s get into it!
Best DraftKings lineup for Week 17
QB: Justin Fields, Chicago Bears ($7,900)
Justin Fields has become one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the league, and that has translated to elite fantasy football production. He’s catapulted himself into the top five of fantasy quarterbacks, passing up guys like Justin Herbert and Kirk Cousins. His midseason explosion may be a reason why many teams made the fantasy playoffs or Super Bowl.
Fields and the Bears have a tough divisional game against the Detroit Lions, who face a must-win game after a bad loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 16. Even though Chicago hasn’t been able to win games, they’ve been playing competitive football. This Week 17 showdown should be competitive, meaning plenty of Fields.
Fields has top-five upside this week, largely due to his massive rushing upside. The matchup is also a plus too, as Detroit is allowing the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Fields is worth the high dollar this week.
