If you're building NFL Week 17 DFS lineups for GPP tournaments, you're probably wracking your brain trying to figure out how you fit the salaries of Jalen Hurts, Christian McCaffrey, Kyren Williams, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in. Not that you're looking to jam all of them into one tournament lineup, but as you sort through and try to fit in a few of them, your need for legitimate DFS bargains increases dramatically. I already have a few strong pay-downs listed in the NFL Week 17 DFS Playbook, but we are always on the hunt for more. Do we have more for you? Of course we do, so let's check out what looks good on the DFS Dart Board.



If you're new to Fantasy Alarm, the DFS Dart Board is an add-on to the Playbook that I started several years ago. It came about when I was building GPP lineups and realized I needed more salary relief. As I dug through my notes to see who stood out the most among those players at a more affordable price, it hit me. When I put players in the Playbook, I am thinking primarily about cash lineup plays -- guys with a high floor who I could conceivably put into my core-group and build a lineup around. After those players, I would mix in a handful of guys who had boatloads of upside and were in soft match-ups, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to their salary as I should have. And that's where the Dart Board came into play.

Occasionally you may see a min-priced QB or TE in here, but more often than not, this space is reserved for running backs and wide receivers who are below $6,000 on FanDuel or $5,000 or lower on DraftKings. Also, while we call this a Dart Board, keep in mind that every player has been carefully researched. We're not up here picking players all willy-nilly, desperately hoping they hit. We're looking for the cheapest bargains possible who still have the strongest potential to give you at least a 3-5x return on what you pay.

All set? Great. Let's get to it and while you do, maybe give a listen to this week's NFL Week 17 DFS Show with me & Jon Impemba!
