Welcome into Week 17 of the 2021 season, and the latest in our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. The final week (for many of you I hope). Everything has led up to this moment- from the draft prep this is the moment that all of that comes into focus- championship week. Now, I understand you might already have your lineup set- but if you don’t we are here.
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Jalen Hurts @WAS
Hurts didn’t have a good time of it last week. But this week, he has the best matchup you can hope for. When Hurts faced up against Washington earlier in the season, he did really well, like week-winning performance. There’s no reason to think the same won’t happen here.
Matthew Stafford @BAL
The Ravens secondary has struggled, as has the defense generally, with COVID and injury hitting it hard. The fact is that even though Stafford struggled last week, if you have managed it to the playoffs with Stafford on your roster, he is a great start this week.
Joe Burrow v KC
Burrow likely got you to the playoffs if you had him, after a massive game last time out. A matchup against Kansas City would have been one to target earlier in the season, but they have been good down the stretch. Still, Burrow has looked good in leading the Bengals offense. I’m trusting him for this week.
Russell Wilson v DET
This is alot to do with the matchup as much as anything else. I don’t know if the Lions can keep up the pace with Seattle, and that means more rushing attempts for an offense that has limited Wilson’s production this season.
Ryan Tannehill v MIA
Sure, there is the revenge game narrative here. But that’s the only thing that this game has going for it for Tannehill. Without Derrick Henry, he has struggled for production. It’s offset by rushing TDs, but it’s not something to rely on for fantasy each week.
