2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 17

It’s officially CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK! I know some leagues ended last week, but those leagues are lame. A team has to really go the extra effort to win if the championship game includes Week 17.

Week 17 can often be extremely difficult to navigate since teams take out their stars if they have nothing to play for and there are sometimes unreal performances from young, hungry players that are playing for big contracts this coming offseason.

Ryan Matthews was not a fit there. They have yet to find the right running back.

The Chargers selected running back Melvin Gordon early in the 2015 NFL Draft. Could he be the answer in San Diego?

Here is the 2015 NFL team preview for the San Diego Chargers.
