DFS Roundtable: Leveraging Big Favorites

The DFS team discusses the big favorites in Week 17 for DFS lineups

Which favorites are the best as core lineup builders for Week 17? Are these mostly run game friendly? Which stacks are the most appealing?

  • Rams
  • Chiefs
  • Packers
  • Patriots
  • Saints
  • Cowboys
  • Vikings


  • Saints - 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. This is a spot to play all sorts of Saints stacks and run it back with Christian McCaffrey. It's tough considering the prices on McCaffrey and Michael Thomas, but not impossible due to the value that opens up with some teams resting their players this week.
  • Cowboys - This one is all about Ezekiel Elliott, who is somehow only priced as the RB5 on DraftKings. Washington has been destroyed by enemy running backs, Aaron Jones (192 total yards and one touchdown), Miles Sanders (172 total yards and two touchdowns), and Saquon Barkley (279 yards and two touchdowns) in each of their last three games. It's not difficult to predict how Dallas plans on attacking Washington's defense in a must-win game.
