    regardless, this is your last chance of 2018 to pick from all the nfl rosters.

    Reading: Week 17 fantasy football 2018

    The challenge in week 17 is determining which teams will rest or limit their star players. However, this is not a big deal this season, as only the New Orleans Saints have secured a no. 1 seed the other three first-round byes are up for grabs. Three AFC divisional races are also undecided, and every team except New Orleans and the Dallas Cowboys can improve or worsen their position in Week 17.

So the Saints and Cowboys are the only teams we’re leaving out of our Week 17 positional rankings. You don’t want your fantasy championship to hang on Alvin Kamara when he could be retired after a series.

    waiver target: derek carr, oakland raiders (23% owned by yahoo leagues)

    as we saw on monday night, the oakland raiders won’t just roll over and die at the end of 2018. they still have fight in them. Oakland also knows it has a chance to prevent Kansas City bosses from securing the No. 1 seed.

    derek carr and the oakland offense are expected to play hard against opposing chiefs and have quite a bit of success against them. Yeah, this is a road matchup, which isn’t ideal, but Kansas City’s defense has been friendly with opposing quarterbacks.

    Only two teams have allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, according to fantasypros.

    The last time Carr faced the Chiefs, he passed for 285 yards and three touchdowns. he should have similar numbers again in week 17.

    waiver target: zach zenner, detroit lions (owned by five percent)

    For a long time, Detroit Lions running back Zach Zenner was a preseason superstar and nothing more. In recent weeks, however, he has shown that he can and should be an important piece of the Lions’ offense.

    zenner has rushed for at least 45 yards in each of his last three games, despite having no more than 12 carries. he has five receptions in that span and found the end zone in two of the three contests.

    “He’s handled the ball well,” minnesota vikings head coach mike zimmer said of zenner before last week’s matchup, according to st. Paul’s Pioneer Press. “He’s physical, I’ve seen him make some really good cuts.”

    Zenner probably won’t give you the kind of production you’ll lose if Kamara sits down, but against the Green Bay Packers, he should be good for 10-20 points depending on whether or not he finds the end zone. .

    exemption target: jordy nelson, oakland raiders (51 percent ownership)

    We already mentioned carr in targeting as a replacement for brees. You might want to do the same for Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson if you need a replacement for Michael Thomas or Keith Kirkwood.

    Nelson is unlikely to replace Thomas’s production, but he has become Carr’s favorite target at receiver (tight end Jared Cook is his overall favorite target) and his production should at least reflect that.

    Kansas City hasn’t been as kind to receivers as it has been to quarterbacks, but it still allows the 13th most fantasy points to wide receivers. Nelson should have a 5-6 receiving floor with a ceiling determined by his ability to find the end zone.

    tight ends

    1. travis kelce vs. oakland raiders: 6 receptions, 90 receiving yards, 1 TD

    2. George Kittle at Los Angeles Rams: 5 receptions, 85 receiving yards, 1 TD

    3. jared cook at kansas city chiefs: 5 receptions, 80 receiving yards, 1 TD

    4. Zach Ertz at Washington Redskins: 5 receptions, 75 receiving yards, 1 TD

    5. Eric Ebron at Tennessee Titans: 5 receptions, 70 receiving yards, 1 TD

    6. vance mcdonald vs. Cincinnati Bengals: 6 receptions, 80 receiving yards

    7. Evan Engram vs. Dallas Cowboys: 6 receptions, 75 receiving yards

    8. Austin Hooper at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 6 receptions, 70 receiving yards

    9. cameron brate vs. Atlanta Falcons: 5 receptions, 75 receiving yards

    10. cj uzomah at pittsburgh steelers: 6 receptions, 60 receiving yards
