COACHING MOVES - WEEK 17 SLEEPERS

This is it, the final week of the fantasy season. And what would the last week be without a few sleepers to get on board with? Now, we're not saying these guys will win your week, but whether is good matchups, heavier usage or a good possible game script, we believe that the eight players below could give you some solid production in Week 17. Good luck!

COACHES' CRIB NOTES

• Rashad Jennings is an interesting play this week. He's strung a few solid games together now with at least 100 total yards in three straight. It seems the Giants coaching staff has realized that if they give one running back around 15 rush attempts a game, you can actually find success on the ground. Quite the revelation. No team has allowed more fantasy points per game to running backs in the last four weeks than the Eagles.

• Pierre Thomas Pierre Thomas got some work in (12 touches, 89 total yards) last week and was a viable flex option in PPR formats. It's not out of the question for Washington to rest Alfred Morris and Jones (hip) again and to let Thomas get some additional reps against a soft Dallas run defense so he can get more comfortable with Washington's offense. For that reason, Thomas makes for an interesting DFS flier this week.

• Zach Ertz is averaging about 10 targets and seven receptions per game and has recorded 307 yards and two touchdowns in his last four games. That production is enough to rank him as the third highest scoring tight end in fantasy over the last month. He should put up TE1 numbers again and have no problems getting behind a Giants defense that has had a lot of trouble stopping tight ends this season.

• Dating back to his 26-point explosion in Week 12, Markus Wheaton has been the more consistent No. 2 receiver in Pittsburgh over Martavis Bryant. We don't want to admit it, but he has a safer floor than Bryant does this week, so if you need the safe play, Wheaton's your guy. Hopefully though, there's enough to go around for everyone in Pittsburgh's receiving corps.

• With Odell Beckham Jr. back from his one game suspension, Eli Manning becomes a top 10 option at quarterback. The Eagles have allowed the second most fantasy points per game, an astonishing 20.47, to opposing signal callers this season and Kirk Cousins and co. just shredded them for four touchdowns a week ago. Manning is a low-end QB1 for the season finale.

• Willie Snead has had a solid couple of games with at least four receptions and 75 yards in each of his last three contests. He's a solid PPR sleeper as the second option in the Saints passing game behind Brandin Cooks, and has a good matchup against the Falcons.

• Ever since Steve Smith was lost for the season, Kamar Aiken has dominated the target pool in the Ravens offense. Dating back to Week 10, the young wideout has been targeted 70 times -- the most on the team by far. Cincinnati's secondary hasn't been particularly accommodating, but a sheer volume of targets means Aiken should at least get flex consideration.

• Ameer Abdullah has collected 206 rush yards over the last four games and is averaging 5.6 yards per carry. In a good matchup against the Bears, Abdullah is a solid running back sleeper with upside in PPR formats.
