FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE WEEK 17
BEAST DOME NATION.
In celebration of completing my 8th year as a Fantasy Football Expert for the BEAST DOME NATION. There will be Free Content all week for you to BEAST your leagues, for the few that are still playing Fantasy Football this season.
While these picks may not help you in your season league, you should definitely look not once, but twice for these picks to help you out in Daily Fantasy.
WAIVER WIRE WEEK 17
JACOBY BRISSET vs. TEXANS
This is it for Jacoby. He will start this game, and then likely end up as a backup QB for all of 2018 unless something big changes. Jacoby started on the top with a great debut with the Patriots winning a few games, and he has looked good as a starter in 2017. The bottom line, Jacoby is not good enough to win you games on his own. He needs talent around him, otherwise he is just another athletic QB with a big arm that does not always make the best decisions. Plenty of those QBs have come and gone, Jacoby needs to have a big season finale against a Texans Secondary that has stopped playing since JJ Watt went down.
MIKE GILLISLEE vs. JETS
If you were not a BEAST MVP member and even did the money back guarantee. You would have had Gilli not only added on your roster, but starting everywhere as no Expert Ranked Gilli higher than myself last week. Another easy win against a horrible team, Gilli could see 15+ Carries in the 2nd half alone as the Patriots prepare for their Super Bowl run.
ADAM HUMPHRIES vs. SAINTS
This is for PPR leagues. Last time the Bucs played the Saints, Winston had no time to throw even though he was looking big down field. With Desean Jackson maybe OUT and Cameron Brate not healthy while OJ Howard is OUT. Humphries can easily get a quick 6 catches. PPR only option, and I am talking 1 Point PPR. If 7 catches for 70 yards gets you excited, Adam is your guy. It is late in the season and searching for Waiver Wire WRs is a dangerous game.
ANTONIO GATES vs. OAK
With Playoffs on the line, the Chargers are giving Gates more reason to go out on top as he goes up against a Raiders Defense that may or may not even exist. Weather will not be an issue, and Rivers loves throwing to the man that has made him who he is today. Tasty matchup and great sleeper.
ADAM VINATIERI vs. TEXANS
QB/K Combo here. Adam could be kicking his last game ever as he proved last week he does not have the leg strength he once did. The Colts offense should be able to move the ball well against the Texans. Which means Vina should be ready to go into the game and complete any drive that Jacoby did not finish. Even though Adam wants to come back in 2018, doubt the Colts keep him.
Comment Below with your Defense and Top Defenses on the Wire. I will let you know if you are set.
