Week 17 Adds

Below is our Week 17 Waiver Wire Add Recommendations. Who should you add or pick-up for Week 17? This list has you covered. Good luck to anyone playing Week 17.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Phillip Lindsay (wrist) has a "possible scaphoid fracture, along with ligament damage" and the runner is looking at a "lengthy recovery." Some reports talk about him missing most all of the off-season stuff, so that means Week 17 is all Royce Freeman's, and we are kind of excited to see the guy get a full week of heavy usage. I was a huge supporter of Freeman's, calling him a breakout, but Lindsay was also once in my top 4 rookie RBs prior to the NFL Draft (before he got banged up and was bumped out of the combine). The point is, I like both backs, and while Lindsay easily earns himself low-end RB2 appeal heading into 2018, Freeman's Week 17 performance could make things interesting (or make Lindsay's 2019 role clear as day). If you need a running back for Week 17, this is the top pick-up (unless Todd Gurley is ruled out before you put in your claim and CJ Anderson is available).

    Get some! (but, hopefully anyone playing Week 17 strongly considers changing it to end your league in Week 16). It’s highly recommended that you don’t play Week 17 given all the sits and teams pulling starters at half time. It’s not a good way to end a fantasy season.
