Kinda sorta here. Our championship was week 16 (I lost... Grrr). In week 17 all 12 owners have a starting lineup; highest score wins $500

What to do with Keenan Allen this week? Looks like SD will be eliminated from postseason before their game starts (I can't see MIA and BAL, wouldn't be miraculous if they did though)
Does he still play heavy snaps? And against a lax KC team.
They could try to pad his stats for Offensive ROY award if it matters.

Just one of my leagues and it sucks
"He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance"

My league does a combined week 16/17 -- where you start players as normal each week and teams receive the best possible combined lineup for their final score. We do this for the championship, 3rd place game, and toilet bowl.

yep, in 2 championships with both teams in sig. I'm not expecting to win with my second team as the team I am going up against is really good and has Peyton Manning. My 1st team looks solid, Foles and McCoy alone could get me 60+ points

why would Keenan Allen not play heavy snaps even if Chargers eliminated?

i think thats a lil extreme paranoia

im more worried he keeps dropping easy receptions and running wrong routes for TDs

Week 17 is usually for the Salary Cap and Eliminator games. Not for leagues.

If your looking for a RB then Edwin Baker the touchdown maker and Jonathan Grimes are other names to consider

I am. I forgot to bring up to the commish of this particular league that playoffs should end on week 16. Too late now.

And I'm not worried about Keenan Allen. Last year I kept Danario Alexander in my week 17 lineup (and won even if I could've played a better scoring player).

I'm playing a finals... really need to change our playoffs to week 14-16 next year. Luckily, I don't think the sitting of players will affect our match-up very much. I am somewhat concerned about Demaryius and Julius Thomas for the Broncos (they are still playing for AFC home field through playoffs) and AP (absolutely nothing to play for, but dude just loves to go out and play). What do you guys think?

12-Team 1PPR
QB-Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tyrod Taylor
RB-Darren McFadden, Javorius Allen, Denard Robinson, Tim Hightower, Brandon Bolden, Arian Foster (RIP), Dion Lewis (RIP), Thomas Rawls (RIP), DeMarco Murray (he just sucks)
WR-DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Floyd, Brandin Cooks, Keenan Allen (RIP)

TE-Rob Gronkowski, Jordan Reed
K-Depends
DEF-Week by week
IDP-Luke Kuechly

Im in week 17 championships. I wouldnt worry about Denver. They need to win this game to have home field advantage throughout the playoffs, Only way they sit people is if they are blowing them out and even then that might not happen as they have a bye on deck. Mannings going for the record.
