Welcome to Week 17 of the fantasy football season. The season finale will throw us plenty of curveballs but that’s the nature of the beast. The Ravens, Bills, and Vikings are all locked into their playoff position, and the Texans could join them depending on how the morning slate goes. That will impact some key fantasy defenses in Week 17.

Below we’ve ranked the top D/STs for your Week 17 fantasy championship and to give you some daily fantasy plays at or near the top of the rankings. We are currently tracking which teams are going to rest starters on Sunday. We also have a rundown of which teams have what motivations for the season finale. As you’re making traditional and daily fantasy roster decisions, teams with nothing to play for are a little trickier to decipher.

Good luck in the regular season finale!
