Football 2018 DFS: Consistently Cashin' - Week 17

Every week, Colby Conway and Ron Rigney uses CONSISTENCY to help you win your Cash Games in FanDuel and DraftKings! Follow them @colbyconway and @therealmaday.

QB

Matt Ryan

Matty Ice is posting numbers comparable to his 2016 MVP campaign, as well as being one of our most consistent QB’s in our rankings week after week.  We all know that 2018 has been the year to pick on the Tampa Bay secondary, and despite getting a little better as the season has gone on, we are going to target them one last time.  Opposing quarterbacks have a 111 rating against the Bucs, and they are also tied for second most touchdown passes allowed in the league with 31.  Ryan torched them for 355 and three scores in Week 6, and I look for him to finish the season strong.  

Honorable Mention: Teddy Bridgewater, Ben Roethlisberger

 

RB

C.J. Anderson

Raise your hand if you expected to see C.J. Anderson in this article.  No?  That makes two of us.  After being claimed by the Rams from the scrap heap, Anderson went for 167 yards and a score against Arizona in Week 16.  He isn’t what you would call the definition of consistency, but with Todd Gurley sitting out, Anderson figures to get plenty of volume, which means plenty of chances to put up points on the DFS slate.  

Adrian Peterson

Peterson’s has a budget friendly $4500 price tag on DK, and figures to be motivated to show one last time he deserves a contract for next season.  The Philly run defense has been solid, but Peterson did torch them for a 90 yard TD last time out.  While I’m not expecting another long TD run, I do think that with the lack of bodies on offense, he could see a fair amount of touches in Week 17.  

Saquon Barkley

Barkley has become Mr. Automatic both in yearly leagues and DFS, but he comes with a hefty price tag of $8200 on DK.  While the Dallas defense has been solid this season, especially against the run, with them securing a playoff spot, many of their regulars figure to sit or see limited time.  His 1198 rushing yards and 14 TD’s have made him a fixture at the top of our Clutch Rankings, and he has even made Bob Lung a fan!  

Honorable Mention: Joe Mixon, Melvin Gordon

 

WR

Kenny Golladay

Assuming his chest injury doesn’t keep him out of action. Golladay is in a great spot for a monster performance in the final week of the season. Not only is he averaging nearly 12 targets per game over the past two weeks, but the Packers have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game this season to receivers. Golladay is 67 percent consistent on the year, but after this game, he’ll be 11-for-16 on the season in terms of clutch games.

Julian Edelman

On DraftKings, you simply cannot fade Julian Edelman. Yes, you get a full point per reception and Edelman is averaging over seven receptions per game over the past three weeks, but his matchup is so good out of the slot against the Jets. Edelman has at least six receptions for 70 yards in three straight games, and he’s scored in two of his last three. He’s 91 percent consistent on the season and makes for an excellent WR2 or WR3 in DFS this week.

Jordy Nelson

Don’t look now, but Nelson has six receptions and at least 75 yards in three of his last four games and finds himself in an excellent spot against Steven Nelson and the Chiefs defense. It’s taken time, but Nelson is finally clicking with Derek Carr and despite not scoring in weeks, Nelson will find the end zone, and earn a clutch game in the season finale. He’s incredibly cheap on both sites, offering salary relief to attack other positions.

Honorable Mention: Tre’Quan Smith, Julio Jones, Vyncint Smith, Mike Evans

 

TE

Evan Engram

Engram is 70 percent consistent on the year and he’s reached double-digit fantasy points in a PPR  setting in each of the past three weeks. With Odell Beckham Jr. on the field, Engram averaged 8.81 fantasy points per game in a PPR format. However, with OBJ out of action, he’s averaging nearly 15 fantasy points per game! With Dallas likely resting numerous starters, Engram could find himself going against backups for the majority of the game, which would be ideal for our lineups.

Honorable Mention: Cameron Brate
