We have made it to Week 17 of the fantasy football season and that means that you are likely in your league’s playoffs and could be in the championship. Whether you are going for gold or if you are trying to avoid a last-place punishment, you need to set the best lineup possible.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has had a solid season and is likely the front runner for the Comeback Player of the Year Award. Prescott is about as hot as he could be coming off a huge performance against the Washington Football Team in Week 16. He had four passing touchdowns in the first half and he finished as the overall QB2 in fantasy behind only Joe Burrow who threw for 525 yards.
