Before we get to the Week 17 rankings, here’s your weekly installment of the Game Flowbotics matchups spreadsheet:

My Game Flowbotics A-to-Z series is done for the season, but I’m recording a DFS-centric episode of the 2QB Experience podcast with a special guest tonight. Subscribe on iTunes/Apple, Stitcher, GooglePlay, or Podbean to get the show as soon as it’s live, or tune in when it posts here at TwoQBs on Friday morning.

In the meantime, if any of the rankings below seem a little strange (or downright ridiculous), keep in mind that only certain teams have something to play for in Week 17. For a good breakdown of the various playoff scenarios, check out this article by Adam Levitan. But playoff seeding is only part of the story. Some of the playoff-hopefuls will be scoreboard watching, in search of opportunities to rest players, and some eliminated teams may not field their best team as they jockey for higher picks in next year’s draft (the Giants have already been doing this with Odell Beckham Jr., for example).

All in all, Week 17 is a tough nut to crack. The best we can do is estimate the motivations of NFL teams and trust those evaluations as we set our lineups. Good luck out there, and thanks for being a part of another great season here at TwoQBs.

Greg Smith is an engineer, co-founder of TwoQBs.com, and enthusiast for the strategy and design of variance-based games.  When he started playing fantasy football in 2001, his home league's small number of teams necessitated starting two quarterbacks.  That necessity has since grown into obsession, making Greg one of the preeminent champions of 2QB and Superflex formats.
