Week 17 of the Fantasy Football Rankings has been published.

SportsWeek 17 of the Fantasy Football Rankings has been published.

There is no better Christmas gift than a win in the fantasy football playoffs. Week 17 of football previews.

It is good to look at recent performance versus year-long with defenses, as in-season adjustments can change things.

The percentage of touches that player had is known as theRBtouch%.

TmTGT% is the percent of total targets going to that player.

Yards per Route Run is an indicator of YPRR.

The points allowed are adjusted.

When the Jets are up by a touchdown, Hall averages more YPC than when they are down. The Ravens have won three in a row, the most recent of which was tied for first with 10 touchdown passes by Joe Flacco. In their past four games, the Cowboys have given up three rushing and two receivingRB touchdown in comparison to five and one in their first 11. The Broncos are the only team that hasn't had a wideout score of at least 11.9 against them since the Lions' bye. If Rhamondre Stevenson returns, he will be a mid-RB2 with upside and risk, while the other player would be an RB3 without him. If Hunter Henry plays, he has been Bailey Zappe's most consistent option, with Demario Douglas behind him, though only Henry has found the end zone outside of Mike Gesicki. If D Onta Foreman plays, the backfield is a mess to avoid. Drake London has a 7.1 TmTGT% with Taylor Heinicke as opposed to a 24.5 with Desmond Ridder. If Josh Jacobs is back, he is in the Top 20 running backs, and if not, Zamir White takes his place. Jonathan Taylor is still an RB1, but Moss is in a deep league hope for a touchdown and/or handful of touches. Only eight wideouts can say the same, and only four running backs have scored 10 or more against the Rams. Greg Dortch is a decent gamble in the wide receiver group if Marquise Brown isn't back. The Saints have the eight-most expected receiving yards (1,161 with 1,041 actual) and the Buccaneers have allowed 2,912 this year. The Saints aren't a worrisome opponent anymore since Baker Mayfield has just five games under 16 points. No Brock Purdy would add risk to the 49ers players, but it would also put Sam Darnold in play as a high-QB2 with plenty of his own risk. In his limited action, he is playing with career highs in both ATT and YD. If Jones returns, I think he will be a boom/bust receiver. Chuba Hubbard has scored in double-digits in each of his past five games with a minimum of 17 touches. The Dolphins have a running back with over 20 touches and 6.0 TmTGT% on the field, compared to the Ravens who have a running back with less than 10 touches and less than 5 TmTGT%. Even though he is just 13th among tight ends in TmTGT%, he is just 5th in FPPG. There are three players in play for most leagues, including Noah Brown, who is locked-in as a receiver. When theTitans are losing or up by less than a touchdown, Henry has 10 of 11 rushing touchdown, compared to just one with a lead. Kenneth Walker has 83.0 runningtouch% and has 6 rushes and one reception in the past two games. The first 100 yard game for George Pickens since Week 7 was in Week 16 and the only other 100 yard game for the team since Week 3 was by Brandon Aiyuk. Jerry Jeudy is a fine receiver, but Marvin Mims is an interesting Hail Mary, which could include Brandon Johnson in deep leagues. The Broncos only have three wins where their scoring margin was more than +8, and Austin Ekeler was back to his old tricks. If Isiah Pacheco is cleared, he is a must start, but he is a dice roll. Three running backs failed to score more than 12 points against the Bengals, and Moss had a touchdown called back.

The Packers wideout situation is a mess with no certainty as to who will be the next one. The Packers have given up at least one double-digit wideout score in each of the past three games. Pat and I have been talking ranks for years, and this season he created amazing thumbnails for his show. I was going to rank them in my usual fashion, but then I had a hard time choosing which was the best. If you want to see the greatness of Pat and me arguing and laughing about ranks, check it out.
