Hello there my fellow NFL DFS contestants. DFS virtuoso CD Hill is here to give you my suggested Week 17 FanDuel NFL Sleeper Picks for players from contests that take place on Sunday, January 1st, 2017. These are projected low owned players, but if you want a full list of top picks for Week 17 be sure to check out Ryan Bauer’s FanDuel Week 17 Picks here.

Also be sure to stay up to date with all the latest injury news and buzz in the daily fantasy sports world throughout the week, so that nothing catches you off-guard when you’re deciding who to finally pick in your starting lineups.

My Picks:

Russell Wilson (QB), (SEA@SF, $7,600, FPPG: 17.7):

There aren’t that many teams playing for something this week, but Russell Wilson’s Seahawks are one of them. Wilson had a rough start to the season but had a solid second half and now has a total of seven TD passes in his past two weeks of action (Weeks 15 and 16) and finished with a huge performance last week against a solid Cardinals secondary sporting a rock solid 350 PASS YDS, 36 RUSH YDS and four TDS giving him an awesome 33.6 fantasy points. He next faces a San Fran D that ranks 12th in the league against the pass, that has only won two games this season and that has very little to play for this week. I expect Wilson to be a solid pick this week in all types of FanDuel contests slated to go in Week 17.

Mark Ingram (RB), (NO@ATL, $6,100, FPPG: 13.1):

In the Saints’ 31-24 win over the Bucs on Saturday, Mark Ingram ended up with 90 YDS on the ground (on 18 rushes) and two TDS (his first multi-TD game of the season). He also had 92 RUSH+REC YDS in Week 15 and next faces an Atlanta team that has a defense that has been very average against the run all season long. Now this pick isn’t the most alluring play at the moment, but with so few RB’s really standing out as ideal choices in Week 17, you could do a lot worse than giving this back a go in any FanDuel competition that strikes your interest right now.

Steve Smith Sr. (WR), (BAL@CIN, $5,800, FPPG: 11.1):

Baltimore and Cincinnati may both be eliminated from the playoff contention this season with very little to play for as a result this week, but Steve Smith Sr.’s career looks to be coming to a close, potentially, so DFS owners should expect him to do his best to end his career as a pro on a high note. I can See Joe Flacco throwing his way quite a bit this week with 12+ targets or so being a real possibility. A 100+ REC yard game with at least one TD seems very probable, so be sure to give Smith Sr. a start this week in hopes he does his FanDuel DFS owners proud.

Also Consider:

QB: Blake Bortles, Philip Rivers, Andy Dalton, Carson Palmer, Sam Bradford, Landry Jones and Tom Savage

RB: DeAngelo Williams/Fitzgerald Toussaint (go with whoever starts), Ty MontgomeryRobert Kelley, Jacquizz RodgersChristopher IvoryBilal Powell, Alfred Blue, Ronnie Hillman and Alex Collins 

WR: Michael Thomas, Golden Tate, Julian Edelman, Cam MeredithJamison CrowderJ.J. Nelson, Adam Thielen, Marqise Lee, Eli RogersBrice Butler and Paul Richardson

TE: Charles Clay (questionable), Kyle Rudolph, Zach Ertz, Antonio Gates and Jared Cook

D: Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans

K: Kai Forbath and Caleb Sturgis
