Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Seventeen

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

Alright fantasy football enthusiasts, this is the last week for NFL football and fantasy football. If you won a championship already, congratulations. If this is the week the championship is decided, best of luck. If you didn't compete for a championship, maybe you participate in a keeper league and want to make a few moves before rosters are locked for the season. Whatever your situation is heading into week 17, I hope you enjoyed playing this season and if you're looking to make some moves on the waiver wire, take a look below. See you again for the 2016 fantasy football season.

Keepers

Kyle Rudolph- Tight End- Minnesota Vikings- While Kyle Rudolph may not be a model of consistency for fantasy owners, he has been playing better as of late. He may have had only three targets on Sunday but he did score a touchdown. He's an extremely touchdown dependent player but fantasy owners looking for a tight end in week 17 may want to take a look at the Minnesota tight end.

Dontrelle Inman- Wide Receiver- San Diego Chargers- Coming off of a game where Inman saw 13 targets, he's become a steady option in the passing game and has scored double digit fantasy points in two of his last four games.

Sleepers

Keshawn Martin- Wide Receiver- New England Patriots- The recently acquired Martin will more than likely have little to no value once Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola return from their injuries but until then, he may be the receiver to own in New England not named Rob Gronkowski. Week 16 saw Martin with a season high 11 targets tossed his way as he hauled in seven balls for 68 yards. Once the Patriots offense is at full strength, Martin may be nothing more than a special teams guy but for now, he could be a sneaky play for week 17.

Jermaine Kearse- Wide Receiver- Seattle Seahawks- With 21 targets over the last three games and the Seattle offense hitting on all cylinders, fantasy owners will want to own a piece of the Seahawks passing game. Sunday saw Kearse catch three passes for 38 yards and a score and just miss posting double digit fantasy points for the second time in as many weeks. Owners looking for receiver help will want to take a look at Kearse for week 17.

Jeepers

Andre Ellington- Running Back- Arizona Cardinals- At this point, is there any doubt as to David Johnson being the man in Arizona? Being reduced to a change of pace back, Ellington scored less than five fantasy points in week 16 and can not be counted on for week 17 if you're playing for anything meaningful.

Will Tye- Tight End- New York Giants- Through no fault of his own, Tye has become less of a fantasy stud the last couple of weeks since making a name for himself. The Giants offense is so inconsistent that it's difficult to trust anyone not named Odell Beckham Jr. Tye had three catches for 28 yards in week 16 and will be hard to start in week 17 with anything on the line.
