The Catch – Week 17 Wide Receivers Breakdown – NFL DFS


Top Tier

JuJu Smith-Schuster | PIT | $8300 DraftKings | $7900 FanDuel

After the ending of last game JuJu is definitely going to be coming out with a chip on his shoulder. Its week 17, we look for strange narratives. He correlates really well with Ben Roethlisberger and has been his primary red zone target pretty well all year long. He will mainly be lined up across Darius Phillips who has allowed a QBR of 103 when targeted this season. Its a high price tag but with all the value available at other positions this week JuJu is certainly worth a look in a meaningful game.

Davante Adams | HOU | $8000 DraftKings | $8500 FanDuel

One team that will not be playing a meaningful game this Sunday is the Green Bay Packers. We talked before about strange narratives, here is one. Davante Adams needs 13 catches to break Sterling Sharpes single season record for receptions by a Green Bay Packers. Although Darius Slay poses as a tough matchup having allowed 4 TDs with 3 INTs and a catch rate of just 53%, Adams has proven he can produce in just about any matchup this season. Chase the Packers single season reception record with Tae Adams on Sunday at home against the Lions.

Mid Tier

Julian Edelman | $7600 DraftKings | $7900 FanDuel

Looks like old man Tom Brady’s glory days are finally coming to a close. This is a good thing for Julian Edelman who can continue to catch those 5-10 yard check down passes which seems to be the max distance Tom can throw a ball these days. Edelman has had double digit targets the last three weeks recording a TD in two of those games. He will be lined up opposite Buster Skrine who has given up 6 TDs without recording a pick and has allowed a QBR of 115 when targeted. Great cash game floor here for Edelman on Sunday against the Jets.

Robert Woods | LAR | $6900 DraftKings | $7600 FanDuel

Despite having just about everything they need locked up the Rams are claiming they won’t take the pedal off the metal unless they are up huge on the 49ers at halftime. Strong matchup for Robert Woods who has been consistent as of late. WR2s have also been finding plenty of success against the 49ers secondary. DJ Reed is no matchup to be feared either for Woods so with his floor he becomes a cash option across both sites.

Value Tier


Robert Foster | BUF | $5100 DraftKings | $5800 FanDuel

The Bills are at home facing the Jets to end out the season. No hidden narratives here just meaningless football. However Robert Foster is likely going to be out to impress and finish the season strong. He has exceeded 100 yards in two of his last three games with a healthy amount of targets across the last month. Without many true punt options at the WR position this week Foster could be one of the best low priced and low owned options out there to save you some salary.
