Week 17 of the NFL season is here and with it we are one step closer to the NFL playoffs. While many are focusing on their fantasy football championship matchup there are also those of you who may be testing the DFS waters for the first time after getting eliminated from your fantasy football playoff matchups. We have 13 games on this week's main slate over on DraftKings and FanDuel  and the main slate is back on Sunday after the Saturday main slate last week. 

Howard Bender is on vacation this week so he has turned the DFS Watch List and Playbook keys over to  me this week. I handled the Sunday three-game slate playbook which did pretty well with the example lineups finding the green thanks to Tyler Higbee and the Rams coming through big.  So,  with that said,  let's get to work!



Just a heads up, we still have our Fantasy Alarm Holiday Special running where using the promo code HOLIDAY will get you 20% off the annual subscription price PLUS a special #FAmily member swag bag that includes a Fantasy Alarm t-shirt, logo pint glass and Fantasy Alarm stickers. This will run through the month of December, so if you want to spoil someone in your life, it makes for a fantastic gift.

Now, for those who may be joining us for the first time here, allow me to say Welcome and give you “the talk.”

“If you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime.”

We take this adage to heart when it comes to playing NFL DFS. The Fantasy Alarm Playbook isn’t just about handing you a list of players and a lineup to use each week. It is designed to help you learn to be a better DFS player. It’s about teaching you the process used in selecting which players to scout and, eventually, which ones to use.

Therefore, we will begin each week with the Weekly NFL DFS Watch List which is designed to keep tabs on marquee names, chalk plays and, of course, the weekly bargains who may not see the same coverage and exposure. This piece will be continuously updated throughout the week, based on the most recent news and injuries, which means you may see a name or two removed as we get closer to Sunday kick-off. You may also see a few late-week additions who pique our interest for some reason too, and by the end of the week, this Watch List will eventually become your Playbook. Again, it’s about teaching you the process.
