Fantasy Football: Week 17 tips

If you're reading this you are probably competing in your championship game today.

Week 17 is always a crapshoot with teams resting players and teams out of playoff contention just going through the motions. With that said there are still players motivated to contribute.
The key backs today are Houston's Arian Foster and Kansas City's Jamaal Charles who are competing for the rushing title. Another key back is New England back Danny Woodhead who should shred the dismal Buffalo rush defense.
If you need a quarterback Denver's Tim Tebow is probably still available on your waiver wire. He should have a big game today as he continues to showcase why he is a legitimate NFL starting QB. The most motivated QB today will be Matt Ryan who laid an egg last week against New Orleans and needs a win to clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
If you need a tight end a guy who might be availableis Houston's Owen Daniels who has been hurt most of the season.
Receivers to key on would be Baltimore's Derek Mason, St. Louis' Danny Amendola, Houston's Kevin Walter and Indianapolis' Pierre Garcon/Blair White.

Be advised Maurice Jones-Drew, David Garrard and Chad Ochocinco are out and guys like Mike Vick, DeSean Jackson, Tom Brady, Deion Branch and Santonio Holmes will see little or no action as they rest for the playoffs.
Good luck today!!!
