Week 17 Offensive Sleepers

A look at the best under the radar plays for Week 17


Andy Dalton, DAL (at New York Giants)

Dalton has a few things going for him this week. He’s coming off of his most productive game of the year. The first time he faced the Giants he led a comeback 37-34 win. He’s one of the quarterbacks playing for a playoff berth this week. The Cowboys offense is surging at the right time with a healthy-ish Ezekiel Elliott. Consider Dalton the best of the Week 17 streamers.

Kirk Cousins, MIN (at Detroit)

Cousins isn’t playing for a playoff berth, but the Vikings haven’t let up much offensively after being eliminated from the playoffs. They’ll be without Dalvin Cook this week, but Minnesota is facing a Detroit defense that had one of the worst halves in recent memory last week. Cousins should have a good chance to finish scoring drives this week, and there should be a lot of them.

Drew Lock, DEN (at Las Vegas)

Lock has been the biggest boom/bust quarterback this year, so it’s a question of guessing which one we’ll get week-to-week. The Raiders are always a good bet to bring out of the boom in an opposing offense, although the first time out Lock threw four picks against them. Lock’s four touchdown game against Carolina in Week 14 is the glimmering light of hope for a big game this week.

Daniel Jones, NYG (vs Dallas)

Jones has been a full participant in practice this week, which means that he will likely be unleashed as a runner again (as much as anyone can be unleashed in a Jason Garrett offense) in addition to facing the vulnerable Dallas defense. The Giants put up 34 points against them in the first matchup, and their offense may be opened up a bit if the Cowboys jump out to a lead. Jones is also playing for a playoff berth (they’ll also need the Eagles to beat Washington, just like the Cowboys), which helps build confidence in Week 17 plays.
