Justin Fields vs Detroit
At the start of the year, there was not at on of expectations for Justin Fields, but after his breakout in Week 6, there is a ton of upside for Fields into the championship game. Fields busted after 8 straight games of landing as a top 10 QB against a tough Buffalo defense, but could easily bounce back against Detroit. Detroit has allowed the most points to opposing QBs, which bodes well for the Bears offensive MVP in Week 17. Fields holds a fairly high floor as a rusher, and boasts big upside against a miserable Lions defense that allowed 320 yards rushing Carolina.
Brian Robinson Jr. vs Cleveland
Robinson impressed NFL fans when he came back from a gunshot wound early on this year, and has been a solid fantasy asset for owners who invested in him. Robinson has landed as a top 15 back 4 times this year, including a top 5 finish against Atlanta. Robinson has rushed for over 50 yards 8 times this since his debut in Week 4. He faces a great matchup against Cleveland in Week 17, who has allowed the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing RBs. B-Rob is a great play that could win you the championship.
Marquise Brown vs Atlanta
Hollywood had an impressive debut in Arizona, turning around his early struggles with Baltimore, before DeAndre Hopkins return. Since then he has struggled to find his ground again, but could jump back up in a great matchup against the Falcons. Brown has accumulated 30 targets in the past 4 games, but has failed to gain his big yardage he had early on in the year. Things could turn around against Atlanta, who has allowed the 9th most fantasy points to receivers this year. If there is any time to trust Hollywood, it is when the spotlight is the brightest.
Pat Freiermuth vs Baltimore
Muth has been one of the most consistent TEs this year, landing as a top 10 TE 6 times this year. The last time Muth faced Baltimore, he landed as a top 5 TE, in a game where he had 3 catches for 33 yards and a touchdown. The Penn St. product has been solid this year, and could be one of the best plays at TEs for your fantasy championship.
