Before setting your Week 17 Fantasy football lineups, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.
Last week, the model advised owners to bench Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, saying he'd finish outside the top 15 quarterbacks. The result: Rivers threw two interceptions and failed to throw a touchdown for the first time this season. Anyone who benched him dodged a MAJOR bullet.
Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 17 Fantasy football rankings.
One player the model loves: Jets receiver Robby Anderson, who has 33 total targets the last three weeks and now faces a Patriots defense that has been gashed by No. 1 wideouts including Kenny Stills (8-135-1) and Corey Davis (7-125-1). He's a rock solid WR2 for championship week.
And a massive shocker: Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins stumbles big-time this week against the Bears and finishes outside the top 12. He's a player to bench in Week 17.
The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of the rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning your Fantasy football championship or going home with nothing.
So who should you sit and start this week? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which shocking QB finishes in the top 10 this week, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
