7 NFL FanDuel Value Plays for Week 17

With Phillip Lindsay out, Royce Freeman stands to see a big role against the Chargers. Which other low-cost plays could pop in Week 17?

Things change quickly and drastically during the NFL season. One piece of news can change a top-end stud into a mid-tier play, or elevate a cheap role player to elite value stats.

Pricing in daily fantasy tends to lag well behind these changes, as having a whole week for news to break between slates creates an entirely different dynamic than we see in sports like baseball or basketball, where new pricing is set every day.

We also deal with uniquely small sample sizes over the NFL season. Only three weeks of NBA or MLB action would give you more slates than the entire NFL season.

This means that stats can be full of variance, leaving production (and price tags) well out of line with where they should be.

If we add matchup analysis to the mix, identifying spots where we can expect players to see a bump in volume or efficiency, that leaves us with quite an array of angles to approach our hunt for value on any given NFL slate.

Let's get right into it and look at some of the best FanDuel NFL value plays for Week 17.
