Healy’s Hints – 2023 NFL Week 17 Intro:

Excited to bring my NFL GPP content back to the team at 4DEEP, where we will look to build upon all of our previous success. Please join us in Discord before lock and feel free to ask me (@Bhealy19) any lineup questions.

This article will be covering the main slate for NFL Week 17 beginning Sunday at 1:00pm. If you’re not familiar with this piece, it will be broken down into the following three sections: A cheat sheet with three tiers of players (each pricing tier based on DK positions/pricing), my favorite stacks to target and which players in said stacks I prefer, and lastly, my “Today’s Edge” section, which covers my edge play/fade of the slate (will update ~2 hours prior to lock), top touchdown picks, and the player I will have the most exposure to on the slate across all my lineups.



Players to consider for your Week 17 NFL GPPs. This isn’t a list of every player I will have, but rather the top guys I am including in my stacks/core, whether it be as a matchup-based play, ownership-based play, or even a leverage play, they will all be included in this core list.

Top Tier Jalen Hurts CMC AJ Brown Travis Kelce 49ers
Top Tier Josh Allen Kyren Williams Cooper Kupp Trey McBride Bears
Mid Tier CJ Stroud Jon Taylor  Mike Evans Darren Waller Colts
Mid Tier Matt Stafford James Cook Chris Olave Dalton Schultz Broncos
Value Tier Baker Mayfield Javonte Williams Noah Brown Cade Otton Panthers
Value Tier Tyrod Taylor Jaylen Warren Demario Douglas Austin Hooper Pats


A common roster construction I like to use in large-field tournaments is stacking a quarterback with one or two of his skill position (RB, WR, TE) teammates and playing one or two guys from the opposition. I plan to attack Week 17 no differently. 

  • My top overall stack is the Saints at Bucs. As noted on the NFL Roundtable, Baker Mayfield is my QB1 (PP$) this week. Over the past three weeks he is QB2 only behind Lamar Jackson. He has begun utilizing Chris Godwin (10+ targets) to move the sticks and he is my second stacking option behind Mike Evans. Evans is typically an easy cross off vs. the Saints when facing Marshon Lattimore. However, Lattimore is out, which opens the door for Evans to finally torch his division rival. Otton is the third option to utilize with White also being viable in double stacks. For runbacks, Olave is a top target against the Bucs’ pass funnel defense. He has gone for 100 and/or a tuddy for six straight weeks, and he is on red alert for another monster game. Shaheed and Kamara are next up for runbacks.
  • Other Stacks To Consider:
    • Texans – Stroud: Brown / Schultz / Collins
    • Rams – Stafford: Kupp / Puka / Williams
    • Eagles – Hurts: Brown / Swift / Smith / Goedert
