Many fantasy football leagues end by week 17, but that just means it’s the perfect time to play some NFL DFS. We have tips and options for Yahoo GPP tournaments here for you. It starts with an Eagles triangle stack in a favorable matchup with the Giants, and we also found a way to fit both Michael Thomas and A.J. Brown to some big upside.
Week 16 was a very limited week for the Yahoo GPP range. Patrick Mahomes, Saquon Barkley and Julio Jones gave all the great games we would expect from them. The problem was that none of our other offensive players were double digits. Greg Ward, Tyreek Hill and Jacob Hollister came close, but we really needed to nail our hangers a little better to match our big nail toys.
WEEK 17 NOT RATING:

NFL DFS Week 17: Yahoo GPP Line Options
QB Carson Wentz, Eagles @ Giants ($ 30). The Giants made Washington rookie Dwayne Haskins look great, so it looks like a safe bet that Wentz would have no problem moving the ball over the air against New York’s secondary.
RB Damien Williams, Head Against Chargers ($ 15). Williams’ pricing was not adjusted for his strong role in Sunday’s football performance. He should see double-digit drops in an explosive offense again in week 17.
RB Justice vs. RB Justice Hill Steelers ($ 10). With Mark Ingram hurt and the Ravens locked in the top seed of the AFC, we expect the pioneer hill to see solid use in Week 17, both on the ground and in the air.
WR Michael Thomas, Saints @ Panthers ($ 39). The Saints are still sowing to play and could try and squeeze Thomas’ report for a year in right-handed areas.
WR A.J. Brown, Titans @ Texans ($ 23). Brown looks like one of the most talented young WRs in football and it’s a big game waiting to happen. That’s good for Brown against a sophomore Houston who has burned out a lot this season.
WR Greg Ward Jr., Eagles @ Giants ($ 16). Assuming Nelson Agholor is out, Ward has to be the best WR Wentz and has shown his ability to play both short and long runs since taking on a bigger role.
WEEK 17 PPR GRADES:
Running back Wide receiver Tight end
TE Dallas Goedert, Eagles @ Giants ($ 18). Going off a career day can lead Goedert to a popular decline, but we will dive right in. There is no reason for the Eagles not to continue their big turnout when you consider how many WRs they simply do not have.
FLEX Nick Chubb, Browns @ Bengals ($ 31). The Browns don’t have much to play for, and Chubb is one of the few bright spots this season, so expect to get a great deal of work to try and start a good season on a high note.
D / ST New Orleans Saints @ Panthers ($ 17). Will Grier looked like a deer in the spotlight on Week 16, so bad that even Christian McCaffrey couldn’t save him. The Saints could prove to be of interest in this honor.
