IDP Waiver Wire - Week 17
Don’t worry, even if you’re unfortunate enough to have to play a Week 17 fantasy championship game, we’re still here to help you with some waiver wire targets if you’re in a position of need. With it being the last week of the season, and a win-only mentality, we’ll be leaning more on matchups than outright form.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to see some Vikings pass rushers mentioned immediately considering they’re playing the Packers, who allowed nine sacks last week, causing Aaron Rodgers to fumble three times. It’s highly likely Everson Griffen is already owned, but Brian Robison and Danielle Hunter are potential grabs for the final week of the season. Minnesota’s edge rushers have shown they are capable of taking advantage of good matchups, as shown in Week 13, when they played the Seahawks and Griffen had a sack and Robison recorded two. With the Green Bay offensive line in utter disarray, they’ll be looking to capitalize and help the team win the division. In fact, Robison had notched up four sacks, two hits and nine hurries in the last four games, so he earns a low-end DL2 ranking this week with such a favorable matchup. Hunter is a much more of a boom-or-bust play due to his limited snap count, but has four sacks (and six hurries) of his own in the last three games.
