Drafters NFL Advice Week 17

Drafters NFL Advice Week 17

This information can also be used at other sites that run similar contests but for me personally, I play at Drafters.com. This information could be used in the H2H contests, but it is mainly referring to GPPs and six-person drafts. H2H takes some different strategies, such as really paying attention to the slots that your opponent fills up first.

This week, the site is offering the normal GPPs including the “shark”, “whale”, and “splash”. Below I will list my targets and fades. I can not stress this enough, BE STRATEGIC! If a player makes my fade list, I will 100% be fading. When depositing at Drafters.com please consider using the promo code “snatchers”. Let’s make some money this season and as always thanks for reading.

As this season winds down I would like to thank you for reading and wish you luck deep into the NFL season. Many injuries and guys we drafted to be starters are now missing valuable time. On the other hand, the player pool is as thin as ever. It helps to decide in advance if you want to throw darts or play darts.

Quarterbacks

Targets: Josh Allen, Pat Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Burrow

Fades: Kyler Murray, Dak Prescott

I am typically waiting until the last round to draft whichever QB falls or whichever one matches my receiving group. For instance, if I have drafted Adams I will be targeting Rodgers for sure.

Running Backs

Targets: Austin Ekeler, Jonathan Taylor, Ezekiel Elliott, Ronald Jones, David Montgomery, Devin Singletary, Rashaad Penny

Fades: Najee Harris, Joe Mixon, Saquon Barkley, Aaron Jones, Josh Jacobs

Ekeler and Elliott are two of my favorite options this week. My ideal draft would be to fade early backs and target receivers. Will have teams that have two of the backs off of the target list fall to me in the last rounds.

Wide Receivers

Targets: Davante Adams, Cooper Kupp, Deebo Samuel, Antonio Brown, Justin Jefferson, Tee Higgins, A.J Brown, Dionte Johnson, Jaylen Waddle, Amon_Ra St. Brown, Kennan Allen, CeeDee Lamb, DJ Moore

Fades: Stefon Diggs, Tyreek Hill, Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Hunter Renfrow, Amari Cooper, Brandon Aiyuk, Cordarrelle Patterson

Antonio and A.J are two of my favorite targets this week. Would be thrilled to get them as my second and third receiver if lucky enough to land one of the top three. In any draft, I will be aiming to draft Adams and Kupp at first and second overall. The guys on my fade list come with too much risk this week and I’m happy to avoid them at all costs. Moore is my late-round sleeper of the week. If healthy one of these weeks he is going to remind everyone that he is one of the best in the game.

Tight Ends

Targets: Mark Andrews, Rob Gronkowski, George Kittle, Dalton Schultz

Fades: Kyle Pitts, Travis Kelce

An early-round Andrews is a super option and my preferred way to go. I recommend prioritizing Andrews in all drafts.
