Football Hotpage – Week Seventeen – A Great Week for DFS

Last week was my best in two seasons of NFL DFS.  The lineup posted with the Hotpage last week posted a score of 176, and with late changes to Mike Evans (from Jamison Crowder), Kapri Bibbs (from Bobby Engram), and Rams (from Lions) I posted a score of 186 :  Good enough to take 1st in the DraftKings Red Zone $50 entry tournament.  Thank you, Todd Gurley

In week seventeen, the NFL has essentially given us two slates to play.  The seven early games feature mostly teams out of the playoff mix (with a couple playing for home field advantage spots).  The late nine game late slate features all of the teams fighting for the final playoff spots, with a few resting players (Rams, Chiefs).

The lineup I listed below is intended for the late afternoon slate (but could also be played in all day contests).  Derrick Henry finally looks like he is going to get out of jail after two whole seasons playing behind DeMarco Murray.  I have a feeling the he will make the Titans coaching staff look silly for keeping him behind Murray all season.
