Week 17 Pick’Em Selections on DraftKings
These picks are for the Early Only slate.
GPP: Adam Thielen vs. Chicago
After two down weeks in a row, I expect Adam Thielen to be severely under-owned this week. That presents a buying opportunity since when we zoom out, we see that Thielen still ranks eighth in the league in targets, is tied for seventh in receptions, and ranks fifth in receiving yards. And Thielen gets to play at home against a Bears defense that has nothing to play for.
Cash: DeAndre Hopkins at Indianapolis
DeAndre Hopkins leads the league in targets, ranks fifth in receptions, and is second in receiving yards. And now he gets a cake matchup against a Colts defense that ranks third-worst in pass DVOA and that has allowed the third most passing yards on the season.
