#Trendspotting: Week 17 - Hyde and Seek

Examining player and team trends to identify valuable DFS options and start/sits in season-long leagues

Doing Things a Little Differently This Week

With Week 17 being a strange beast, looking at trends like we've done all season can yield misleading results. After all, what good is it to discuss San Francisco's horrible pass defense in the context of Jared Goff's promising prospects if Goff isn't even going to play this week? Why attempt to get in the heads of the Indianapolis players to gauge their level of interest in playing for a head coach who is likely to be dismissed within 24 hours of their game ending? 

Something that will carry over from previous weeks is that we're going to provide facts. Those facts will come with a level of guidance, but ultimately, their purpose is to lead you to an informed decision - not to make the decision for you. We'll still look at Vegas lines in the context of our new How Will They Score? section because Vegas is aware of which teams will be playing their starters and going all out.
