Week 17 optimal FanDuel lineup: 2 guys named Rodgers
Week 17 is nuts. Totally crazy. Someone is going to win the big money with some crazy cat. Someone like Juwan Thompson or Cobi Hamilton.
Rather than make wild guesses that are not based in the sort of signature stats that Pro Football Focus in known for, I decided to put together a solid FanDuel cash game lineup filled with players who we know will produce.
We’ve learned a lot in 2016. Let’s put that knowledge to good use and end the year on a high note.
QB: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers ($8,800)
Over the last four weeks, Rodgers has thrown nine touchdowns against zero interceptions. Only Andrew Luck has more touchdowns (10) in that time span, but he also threw four picks. Rodgers’ 81.4 accuracy completion percentage is the highest in the league over the month of December. And he needs to win this game. This team will play their hearts out at Detroit. I stacked him with Jordy Nelson and I’m fine with that being a chalk play. This is a cash lineup and they are destined to score points.
