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).
