These 15 fantasy football players might not be the biggest names, however they have a chance to significantly help your team win in Week 17 of the fantasy football season.


Jerick McKinnon, RB, Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears

McKinnon put together a solid afternoon in a Week 16 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He rushed 11 times for 50 yards and had 5 receptions for 35 yards. With Adrian Peterson inactive, McKinnon saw 54 snaps to Matt Asiata’s 25 snaps.

The Vikings have already ruled Peterson out in Week 17 and it should be McKinnon that takes advantage of a good matchup. The Bears allowed 208 rushing yards in Week 16 and rank just 27th in the NFL against the run.

If given 15-plus touches again, McKinnon has the upside this week to put together his biggest game of the season at the most important time. — Marc Caviglia
