The Week 17 Fantasy Football Workshop And Guide

So we all know why you are here: a vast majority of fantasy football leagues wrap up in Week 16 because, well, they should. However, there are of course leagues that do play things about until Week 17 and even some formats that run all the way into the playoffs. The key part to figuring out Week 17 is obviously knowing what each team is playing for. Some teams are full speed ahead for Week 17 and need wins, other teams effort levels will be reliant on what happens in other games and some teams are outright benching their starters.

In the Week 17 fantasy football workshop, we will take a look at the motivations/playing time situation for all relevant teams, discuss a few fill-in players who are starts in Week 17 and then have initial weekly rankings. This will not be the normal format for either the usual start/sit on Thursday nor the normal outline of the fantasy football workshop but the idea is to get everyone ready for Week 17 in the NFL if they are in fact, still playing fantasy football!
