Week 17 Fantasy RankingsFollow @douglasmenefee
by Douglas Menefee updated 12/27/19
The rankings here are slightly contrarian to the normal de-facto general ranking meaning there are spots I might not play it safe. I’ve included some useful data to help in your decision making and color coded the rankings by tiers. Use the rankings as a guide not a “Holy Grail” and adjust rankings based on your intuition after analyzing. Views are my own. Always be responsible.
Week 17 is very toned down version of my normal rankings since its the last week of the season and only a few teams really need to play and thus its hard to gauge.
Make sure to scroll down to the Key at the bottom so you can see how to read the data.

Tiers Color Coded – You might not want to totally go off of actual rank but more off of tiers. The top tier is green and slowly changes to red.

Run Rank – Same as pass but with run.
RF – Run Funnel Defense which is better for running backs.
