Another 4-game slate makes it harder to differentiate in DFS, but we're breaking down the matchups to try anyway. Show notes:
Falcons-Eagles: Could there be surprising value in a wideout from each side? And should you be paying more attention to Matt Ryan?
Titans-Patriots: Can Derrick Henry do it again? Who's set up to succeed in the New England backfield?
Saints-Vikings: Will there be enough points in this game to make it worthwhile? Which Viking just might head into the weekend underrated?
Jaguars-Steelers: Do we need to bother looking beyond the star RBs?
Plus, we'll start off today's show with a recap of the first 2018 fantasy football mock draft.

Fantasy football season doesn't have to end with the NFL regular season, and it doesn't for many players. So today's show jumps into playoff fantasy football. We're talking some strategy for full playoffs drafting -- i.e. which teams to target and how to approach them -- before digging specifically into the FFPC's Playoff Challenge. After we set lineups there, it's on to the Wild Card slate and some DFS advice for playing on FanDuel and DraftKings.

Now that he's locked up the season-long victory in the Crown His Ass Challenge, Jared has his sights set pretty firmly on the Lions for Week 17 -- with multiple pass-offense picks across positions. With Kevin out once again, both remaining guys seem to agree pretty well on the TE tiers for this week, which could fill your flex spot as well. The 16-game main slate also leaves plenty of directions to travel at RB, but also lots of room for disagreement. And the D/ST slot gains a few more options by way of some playoff teams resting starters.

A full, 16-game DFS slate for Week 17 should mean a bevy of QB options, but Matt and Jared didn't have much trouble agreeing on their top targets -- led by a certain NFC North passer with big upside at home. At RB, Derrick Henry carries a lot of popularity into the weekend but creates a bit of a divide on this show. There are other cheaper backfield options we can agree on, though, and we don't have any trouble finding common ground at wideout -- including a high-ceiling play at $5200. TE looks like Rob Gronkowski or penny stocks this week. And the resting of starters by playoff teams creates some intriguing bottom-shelf values on defense.

Why not play your fantasy football season through Week 17? Jerry Jones answered that this week by calling the Cowboys' playing time into question. Doug Marrone answered it as well, vowing to play "all out" ... though in a position where it's tough to trust RB Leonard Fournette. And we're just hoping the Steelers will answer it before Sunday's kickoff. We're running through the teams we know are resting players as well as the injury situations you'll need to watch into the weekend and a few bounce-back and sleeper candidates for NFL Week 17.

Can the Seahawks' wildly disappointing Week 15 create DFS opportunity in NFL Week 16? There's room for them in tournament lineups at least. But there's also an affordable QB on the other side of the country, a pair of expensive RBs in the league's best backfield, some volume bets toward the other end of the cost spectrum and a range of TE options to digest. At WR, is there a clear top guy or a pair to try to squeeze in. And what should we do with Dede Westbrook after he crushed fantasy dreams last week?

With Kevin still out tending to parental duties, Jared and Matt open the NFL Week 16 show agreeing disturbingly easy. That's because there's a nicely priced, strong-performing, under-played QB in a nice matchup to build around on FanDuel this week. His lead WR could be in for a big bounce back as well. In between, there's a RB who has been delivering for a while but could get a boost from a teammate's injury -- along with a cheap rusher who has been loading up on volume lately. At WR, both Sharks try to rebound from a terrible Week 15 by looking at which decisions were truly bad vs. which simply didn't pan out. And TE ... well, there are some expensive guys and then a huge muddle.

You probably drafted T.Y. Hilton somewhere in the 1st 3 rounds. But does that mean you need to put him in your lineup in Week 16? Not if you've been paying attention to his (looooooong) rough patch. Can we ignore the recent downturn for Julio Jones, or does he carry Week 16 risk? And what about the quietly tough matchup facing Jordan Howard? Should we start him because his team's on a mini roll? Is it safe to go back to Joe Mixon against a soft Detroit run D? Do the injuries to Hunter Henry and O.J. Howard mean you can rest your championship dreams on Antonio Gates or Cameron Brate? With no Thursday action this week, let's run through every game for the matchups and situations to target -- or avoid.

It's not usually easy to find certain touches way down the RB price list, but this looks like a good week to do so. We've got no fewer than 3 options at $5K or cheaper that can play across contest formats in NFL Week 15. We've also got affordable QBs from multiple games to like and a potentially underserved game stack out west.
