Championship week is here for many fantasy football leagues and the pressure is on to finish the season on top. If you’ve made this far congratulations but now it’s time to finish the year as the champion. To do so you will need to set the most optimal lineup possible for week 17. We are here to help push your team across the finish line with our updated week 17 fantasy football rankings. Before you check out our rankings let’s first look at the biggest injuries we are monitoring this week.
Amari Cooper – All eyes are on Cooper after his dominating performance last week. For many Cooper single-handedly carried you to the championship game after putting up 265 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns in week 16. Unfortunately, Cooper is now dealing with a heel injury that may keep him out of the Thursday night game vs. the Jets. We will know later today whether he is good to go or not.
Josh Jacobs – Jacobs missed last week with a quad injury and has not been present at practice this week. If he is out again this week Zamir White will be a popular option to start as the Raiders have a plus matchup against the Colts.
Trevor Lawrence – It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Lawrence who is now dealing with a shoulder injury. He was seen at practice on Thursday but in a limited fashion. If Lawrence can’t go this week you should downgrade the offensive threats on the Jaguars.
