Well, yours truly managed to go 0-for-December as far as cashing in with FanDuel, but the final week of the season gives one more opportunity to get into the green. Usually Week 17 is a little hard to predict because teams could be resting players and stuff like that, but in this case a lot of teams still have quite a bit to play for, whether it's playoff position or statistical glory.

With that in mind, here is my lineup for Week 17 of daily fantasy sports action on FanDuel.

FanDuel Week 17 Lineup

As you can see, a lot of the players in my lineup have quite a bit to play for, with the exception of Celek. . .I took him because, hey, we saw that Giants' defense last week. Julio Jones can set some receiving records if he has a big game, and that Saints defense doesn't cover anybody, so he seems like a good bet. Other than that, everyone else in my lineup for this week is on a team that's either playing for a division title or a playoff spot. . .or, in the case of David Johnson and the Arizona Cardinals, home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

So, how have the players on the Minnesota Vikings changed value since last week's big win over the Giants?

Position Player Week 16 Salary Week 17 Salary Change
QB Teddy Bridgewater $6,600 $6,800 +$200
RB1 Adrian Peterson $8,200 $8,300 +$100
RB2 Jerick McKinnon $5,400 $5,500 +$100
WR1 Stefon Diggs $6,000 $5,700 -$300
WR2 Mike Wallace $4,700 $4,700 $0
WR3 Charles Johnson/Cordarrelle Patterson/Jarius Wright $4,600 $4,600 $0
TE Kyle Rudolph $5,000 $5,000 $0
K Blair Walsh $4,600 $4,500 -$100
D Minnesota $4,700 $4,500 -$200
Totals $49,800 $49,600 -$200

Not a whole lot of change. . .honestly not sure why Walsh dropped after his performance last week, but there you go.

That's a look at where my attention is for the final week of the regular season on FanDuel, folks. Who are you playing this week?
