Waiver Wire Rankings

The last week of the NFL regular season is here, which means it’s fantasy football championship week for some of you, Congrats!

To be honest, most leagues are already done. It’s become the standard in fantasy football to skip week 17. Having your championship during a week where most NFL teams are resting players for the playoffs or allowing rookies a chance to play for experience for next season, is tough. Although every year is different, for example, Dallas didn’t want to cool off their high powered offense and played all their starters last night against the Lions in a meaningless game, so this year might not be as bad as previous years.

Week 17 Championship Advice

My advice would be to lean on those who have something to play for. The NFC and AFC playoff bracket isn’t finalized. There are still teams fighting for every point in hopes of either clinching a playoff spot or moving into a better position like gaining the 2nd seed and getting a first-round bye (Chiefs). A lot of players have already called it a year, avoid those on teams you think don’t care anymore.
