Ertz a top DFS bargain in Week 17
After sorting through this week’s price sheets, I’ve found some valuable players for our Week 17 rosters. As I have done every week, I used my prediction models—which I’ve written about in the past—to find the players with the most value at each position on all three major DFS sites. I also accounted for injuries and matchups when I made my picks.
Most of the well-known fantasy studs and superstars have been excluded. Even though I think many of them have a lot of value this week, I don’t think it’s necessary to explain why.
Now, lets jump into some of my most value picks for Week 17. I’ve included many of the players’ projected floor and ceiling scores (PPR). They give us clear indication of who has good GPP potential (high ceiling), and who should be used primarily in cash games (high floor). The prices listed below each player are the ones I consider to be a good values this week.
Matt Ryan (GPP) vs New Orleans
Ryan played well against the top-tier Carolina defense (107.9) last week. He threw for 306 yards and a touchdown. He has a much easier matchup on Sunday. The Saints defense has allowed the most points per game to opponents (30.6) this season. They’ve allowed 43 passing touchdowns in 15 games. This week, Ryan’s floor is nine points, and his ceiling is 33. He’s a great value play in GPP contests.
