Welcome back for for the 2014 week 17 regular season finale. Our last week of a full slate of fantasy worthy games to draft from on FanDuel and DraftKings. Its been a great year, I personally took my Daily Fantasy Football to another level with my player production value spreadsheets
and cheat sheets
. Based on the feedback I’ve gotten through email, G+ and twitter that many of you have as well, so lets keep it going into the playoffs!
The last week of the season is always one of the hardest to figure out. This is exactly the reason no one likes their season long fantasy seasons to run this long. Motivation is the key factor this week when selecting your starting fantasy lineup. This is because many teams mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and others fighting hard to get in, this is why team motivation is a big factor when selecting daily fantasy players.
For DFS purposes, I only like to use players from teams that have something to play for. This week Im not crazy about using any Patriots and Colts this week because there is nothing for them to play for. Im also not a fan of teams that are completely out of it with nothing to play for. I may consider division rivalry games where nothing is at stake such as the Giants and Eagles game.
What Teams Are Playing for What This Week?
Baltimore, Houston, San Diego, and Kansas City are all fighting for the 6th seed in the AFC. I would expect all of these teams to go all out.
Dallas has a chance for a Bye with a win.
