DFS Roundtable: Extra Motivation

The DFS team discusses the games with motivated teams in Week 17

Which offenses-players do you trust the most with extra playoff-centric matchups in Week 17?

  • Patriots-Dolphins
  • Packers-Lions
  • Saints-Panthers
  • Giants-Eagles
  • Colts-Jaguars


  • Saints-Panthers - New Orleans needs a win and/or some help to get back in position for a first-round bye. They're favored by 13 at Carolina and implied to score a slate-best 30.5 points. It looks like an ideal time to break out your Brees-Thomas-Kamara stacks. Jared Cook, the Saints defense, and Christian McCaffrey (chasing a 1,000-1,000 season) also look like high exposure plays.
  • Giants-Eagles - With the release of Janoris Jenkins, the Giants officially have the worst defensive backfield in the NFL. Philadelphia doesn't have much to threaten New York with, especially if Zach Ertz is forced to sit out with his rib injury, but inexpensive plays like Greg Ward, Dallas Goedert, and even disappointing rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, are in line for heavy usage in the softest possible matchup and all of their paths intersect at Carson Wentz.
