Fanduel NFL Week 17 Players to Start

This is it! Your last chance to cash-in on the NFL in the regular season with Fanduel. As always, we bring you a stud and a bargain at each position. Good luck everyone!

QB - Tony Romo  $8,400  vs. Washington
Romo, who traditionally struggles in December, has but together a heck of a run as of late. The Redskins have given up 8th-most points to QBs in the last 5 weeks and Romo torched them for 441yards and 3TD's just a few weeks ago.The winner of this one is going to the playoffs while the loser stays home. Expect another big game for Romo in this must win match-up.
QB - Chad Henne  $6,400  vs. Tennessee
One thing is for sure, Henne is not afraid to sling it around. I'm sure many of you are wondering why a QB that just lost his #1 receiver (Cecil Shorts) would be listed as someone to target. Those of you with the questions clearly did not see Henne and the Jaguars in the 1st half against New England last weekend. Henne has plenty of weapons in Blackmon and breakout candidate Jordan Shipley. He is going up against a horrible defense in Tennessee and has the potential to win a game and make a case for a starting job somewhere next season. Expect big things from Henne this week.

RB - Adrian Peterson  $9,300  vs. Green Bay
Has a chance to break Eric Dickerson's record with a big game. Put up 210 and a TD against Green Bay a couple weeks ago. He will be motivated and going up against a defense he knows how to carve up. This one could be close. If you are going to roll the dice on a high price guy, Peterson is it this week.
RB - Knowshon Moreno  $6,600  vs. Kansas City
Moreno continues to be undervalued. He carried the ball 24 times for 111yards against them a few weeks ago. With the game in Denver and a chance to lock up home field on the line expect the Broncos to jump out to an early lead and pound the ball with Moreno the rest of the way.

WR - Dez Bryant  $7,600  vs. Washington
Has put up big numbers despite a broken ring finger. With Romo expected to have a big game and Bryant emerging as the #1 target it is only logical that this should be another big week for him.
WR - Randy Moss  $4,900  vs. Arizona
Mario Manningham is out for the season with a torn ACL. Vernon Davis is banged up as well. The 49ers are going to need a secondary threat behind Crabtree and need to find him before the playoffs start. This is where Moss comes in. He has not played nearly as big a role as many expected going into the season but still has the ability to go up and get balls that few others can. He caught a big touchdown against his former team in New England. That could be just the jump start he needs. Expect the 49ers and Kaepernick to try to develop something with him early. If it works he could be in for a big game.

TE - Jason Witten  $6,000  vs. Washington
For the same reasons we like Romo and Bryant we like Witten this week. It is a must have game and Witten is Romo's red-zone security blanket. Play him with confidence.
TE - Jermichael Finley  $5,200  vs. Minnesota 
Finley is finally starting to regain his form with 50+ yards receiving in each of his last four games. He had 6 catches for 60 yards against Minnesota earlier in the year. If he can get a couple red-zone targets this week he could be a great value steal.

K - Nate Kaeding  $5,000  vs. New England
Kaeding took over last week for the injured Dan Carpenter. Tannehill and the Dolphins offense has been hot lately and should be able to put up enough points to keep things interesting against New England. Pretty good play from the 5,000 group this week.

D - Denver Broncos  $5,600  vs.  Kansas City
As we mentioned last week, if you look at the teams winning the large leagues they usually have one thing in common, huge points from their defense. Last week Seattle put up 40. This week it could be Denver's turn. They will take the lead early and force KC to go to the air if they want to catch up.  If you are desperate for a value play look at Jacksonville.
