Reviewing The Week 17 OwnersBox Winning Lineup
NFL Week 17 is just about in the books! Let’s look at the winning lineup from the $15k Sunday Contest. Here is a position by position breakdown of the winning lineup:
TOTAL: 244 fantasy points
QB: Joe Burrow ($7,100) – 43 fantasy points
RB: Devin Singletary ($5,300) – 23 fantasy points
RB: Jaret Patterson ($4,200) – 20 fantasy points
WR: Ja’Marr Chase ($6,700) – 55 fantasy points
WR: Gabriel Davis ($5,200) – 7 fantasy points
TE: Noah Fant ($4,700) – 21 fantasy points
FLEX: Elijah Mitchell ($6,000) – 20 fantasy points
FLEX: Rashaad Penny ($5,500) – 32 fantasy points
SUPERFLEX: Trey Lance ($5,300) – 23 fantasy points
Joey Franchise and Ja’Marr Chase
Lately, the Bengals QB/WR combos have produced at an unheard-of rate. Like last week, the winning lineup included Joe Burrow and a Bengals receiver. In Week 17, Burrow and Chase linked up for a combined 98 fantasy points. After last week’s performance, Burrow ended up being the 2nd highest owned quarterback in the contest (12.8% owned), only behind Trey Lance (44.8% owned). After throwing for 500+ yards the week before, Burrow fell 50 yards short of doing it again against the Chiefs. Add his 4 touchdown 0 turnover day on top of that, and you have yourself one of the top quarterback performances of the season. Considering all this, it would be wrong not to give even more credit to Ja’Marr Chase, who hauled in 11 catches on 12 targets with 266 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns. Chase’s 55 fantasy points is a top 3 wide receiver performance on the season. If you had both of these guys in your Week 17 OwnersBox lineups, you made some cash!
Running Backs, Running Backs, and More Running Backs
This user took a very unique approach when constructing this lineup. Instead of leveraging some wide receivers in the FLEX position slots, they chose to roll with 4 running backs. Between Devin Singletary, Jaret Patterson, Elijah Mitchell, and Rashaad Penny, 95 fantasy points were scored. That’s quite impressive when you consider 3 of 4 were priced under $5,500 this week. Since J.D. McKissic was sidelined, rookie Jaret Patterson’s role would inevitably increase in Washington. OwnersBox users picked up on this trend as Patterson was a top 5 rostered player this week across Week 17 lineups (23% owned). This same trend goes for Rashaad Penny. The former backup Seahawks running back has been propelled into a starting role over the last few weeks and has done more than take advantage of his opportunity. Over the last few weeks, Penny has been one of the most popular players thrown into lineups. This week he was the 2nd highest owned player, owned at 28.1%. The production from these 4 running backs allowed this user to save some money and allocate it elsewhere, ultimately allowing them to win the whole contest.
