A sad time of the year is coming, the end of the fantasy football season. Coming into the final week of the fantasy football season and the last week of the NFL regular season, if you are still paying in your fantasy championship and have a lot of options to decide between look no further than this article. Below you will find the players to start in PPR formats for you fantasy football championship. All statistics used in this article can be found on our website at https://www.lineups.com/nfl.
WR Michael Thomas (NO) vs Carolina Panthers
One of the most prolific receivers we have seen so far, setting records left and right it seems. Thomas has been an amazing fantasy asset this season for those who own him. The Saints have secured their spot in the NFL playoffs but still have more to play for. With a few things going their way in week 17, the Saints could secure a first rough bye for the playoffs with a win against division rival Carolina Panthers. The Panthers have had a stout pass defense, the one bright spot of a dismal season for them. However, the sheer volume Thomas receives in the passing game incorporated with his talent level makes him a great fantasy start week in and week out in all formats.
WR Davante Adams (GB) vs Detroit Lions
Ending last season as the best fantasy wide receiver in fantasy, Adams has seen a dip in production this year. However, Adams has seen good production in the past two games. Seeing 13+ targets in that time span, the connection between him and Aaron Rodgers has been reestablished. Facing the Detroit Lions in week 17 who rank 27th against opposing fantasy wide receivers this season. Adams will be seeing great matchup to continue this production. The Lions have allowed the most passing yards, 4th most passing touchdowns, 4th highest yards per completion, and the 6th highest yards per attempt.
RB Miles Sanders (PHI) vs New York Giants
Miles Sanders has been making a late case for rookie of the year this season. Leading all other rookies in all-purpose yards, he has made a strong case for himself. He has become a key piece of this Philadelphia Eagles offense. Without all of their starting wide receivers and starting tight end going into week 17 against the New York Giants, Miles Sanders is guaranteed production this week. Seeing 25 touched in each of the past two games, Sanders is a fantastic fantasy option for your week 17 championship.
WR A.J. Brown (TEN) vs Houston Texans
A.J. Brown has been another impressive rookie coming out of the draft. Impressing everyone and becoming the wide receiver that the Titans initially drafted Corey Davis to be a few years ago. Scoring double digit fantasy points in 4 of the last 5 games he has played in, he has been a starter week in and week out with Tannehill under center. The Titans are using Brown in every way they can to ensure his production, even giving him rushing attempts last week which he took 1 for 49 yards and a touchdown. Facing a weak Texans secondary which ranks 20th against opposing fantasy wide receivers this season. Such a great matchup makes Brown another great start going into week 17.
WR Amari Cooper (DAL) vs Washington Redskins
Amari Cooper has seen recent struggles totaling just 6.8 fantasy points over the past 2 weeks. Cooper and the Cowboys are in a must win situation in hopes that the Giants overcome the Eagles in week 17. Even with his recent struggles, Cooper is still seeing an elite number of targets in the passing game for the Cowboys. Facing the Redskins in week 17 who have a secondary with little to fear in terms of secondary players. Coopers continuing involvement in the passing game makes him a week in and week out starter with plenty to play for on your fantasy team.
WR Breshad Perriman (TB) vs Atlanta Falcons
Perriman has come into the Tampa Bay offense in replacement of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as the new number one receiver for gunslinging Jameis Winston. Even without the number one role earlier in the season Perriman has shown the ability to be a playmaker. Seeing 12 targets last week against the Houston Texans, Perriman will face yet another good matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Ranking as the 17th best defense against opposing fantasy receivers. The high amount of targets that Perriman has seen added to his playmaking ability makes him a good fantasy start in week 17 that is still available in 39% of fantasy leagues.
