2015 Fantasy Football Advice: Week 17 DFS Picks

Ryan continues to throw money into the wind with Daily Fantasy Football.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Is your traditional league over? Did you finish dead last in said league? Did you not pick that key player to help your team? Did you have Andrew Luck this season? Fear not.  The fantasy season isn't over. Hope is not lost. You can redeem yourself by winning something in Week 17. Let's run through some DFS picks:

QB: Eli Manning, NYG, $7,500

Odell Beckham is back? Yes. Go with Manning at this price.

RB: Tim Hightower, NO, $7,000

The Saints gave Hightower the ball 27 times last week. No reason that changes against the Falcons this week.

RB: Charcandrick West, KC, $6,800

West has still been the top back in Kansas City, and the Chiefs are playing for playoff seeding.

WR: DeAndre Hopkins, HOU, $9,000

The Texans are playing for their playoff lives this Sunday. Hopkins hasn't been hurt by the quarterback play this season and now he has the number one guy, Brian Hoyer, back.

WR: Demaryius Thomas, DEN, $7,700

The Broncos are still playing for the division title and a first round bye. Thomas is the best weapon on offense.

WR: Michael Crabtree, OAK, $6,600

Crabtree has been a solid surprise for the Raiders this season. He is 112 yards from 1,000 this season; here's hoping he gets it.

TE: Zach Ertz, PHI, $5,700

Zach Ertz was targeted 17 times last week against Washington. I expect either DeMarco Murray to get the ball a million times without Chip Kelly or more passing attempts like last week -- Sam Bradford threw 56 times last week.

K: Shayne Graham, ATL, $4,800

The one-time Texans kicker is filling in with the Falcons. Atlanta faces the Saints this year. New Orleans is playing the ole defense at the moment, so it seems like a safe bet that the Falcons will air it out.

DEF: New England Patriots

The Patriots are facing the Dolphins. I'm willing to take my chances against Ryan Tannehill.
