DFS Podcast: Week 17 FanDuel 12-29-17

A full, 16-game DFS slate for Week 17 should mean a bevy of QB options, but Matt and Jared didn't have much trouble agreeing on their top targets -- led by a certain NFC North passer with big upside at home. At RB, Derrick Henry carries a lot of popularity into the weekend but creates a bit of a divide on this show. There are other cheaper backfield options we can agree on, though, and we don't have any trouble finding common ground at wideout -- including a high-ceiling play at $5200. TE looks like Rob Gronkowski or penny stocks this week. And the resting of starters by playoff teams creates some intriguing bottom-shelf values on defense.
