The NFL is back for Week 17 to wrap up the 2020 regular season. Most traditional fantasy leagues have wrapped up, but some of you have a title game still to play — or underway if you have a multi-week championship. And of course, there’s plenty of DFS to be had on this final Sunday of the season.

There are plenty of notable injuries to keep track of, as well as which teams will be resting which starters. We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on pertinent players and figuring out last minute roster decisions. That means not only who is not playing this week, but who is playing but might not be the best start in your Week 17 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
