What are the best FanDuel tournaments and GPPs strategies and players for optimal lineups for Week 17 of the 2018 NFL season? This piece will run through each by offering up chalk plays, contrarian plays, and stack options — all from a tournament perspective.
Chalk: Patrick Mahomes ($9,500). The uber-expensive Mahomes will still be popular because the Chiefs are playing in Arrowhead for the No. 1 seed with an implied team total of 33.
Chalk: Ben Roethlisberger ($8,700). They don’t control their own destiny, but Pittsburgh still has a path to the playoffs as massive 14.5-point home favorites against the Bengals, who have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this year.
