It’s week 17 in the NFL, creating a murky picture of who will play and who will be rested on the final weekend of the regular season.

However, with a range of injuries and teams that still have unclear playoff pictures, a number of appealing players are available across the slate.

We have $10,000 to win in the NFL Monday tournament, and these guys might help you do it.


C.J Anderson – RB – $7,540

Todd Gurley remains out of action for the Rams, clearing the path for Anderson to spend another week as the feature back. Anderson piled on 167 yards on the ground and a touchdown last week. That performance did come against Arizona, the clear own run defense in the league, the 49ers will pose a much tougher challenge but aren’t a dominant run stopping team either. The Rams should be happy to feed Anderson plenty of ball to run through this game with their division easily wrapped up.

Damien Williams – RB – $10,510

Williams has been absolutely feasting of late, scoring five touchdowns in the last three weeks. While Spencer Ware may be set to return to the Chiefs lineup, listed as questionable currently, Williams has surely done enough to eclipse Ware on the depth chart. The Raiders have given up the third most rushing yards in the NFL and the 10th most touchdowns on the ground. If Ware is ruled out, he looms as the most valuable pick on the slate. If Ware is in, he should still get plenty of touches against a poor defense.

Teddy Bridgewater – QB – $13,210

With the Saints playoff schedule comfortably locked in, it is expected that star quarterback Drew Brees will spend this one on the sideline. This opens the door for Bridgewater to show his wares against the Panthers who have allowed the 12th most passing yards in the NFL. Teddy has had extremely limited opportunities this year, but with nothing to play for, the Saints have little reason to not let Bridgewater stretch his arm and his legs here.

DeAndre Hopkins – WR – $15,770

With the Texans still a chance at securing a first week bye, there is plenty on the line for Houston which means the likes of Hopkins should still see a number of snaps. D-Hop has been coming back into form of late with back to back 100+ yard games, two touchdowns in the last two weeks and 19 catches in that stretch. The Jags do have one of the better pass defenses in the NFL, but they also have nothing to play for and a struggling offense that should see the Texans end to with plenty of ball.

Zach Ertz – TE – $15,530

How teams will approach this week is tricky to predict in many cases, but with everything on the line for the defending champion Eagles, we can expect the Philly starters to be in full swing, at least until a win is secured. The Redskins have nothing to play for, are beaten down and broken, and just simply aren’t very good. Ertz comes at a high price, but TE has been a tough spot to pick even when the rosters were clear.
