Colts’ Taylor, Rams’ Kupp among best bets to score


It´s championship week for most fantasy teams, so who we put into our lineups is of utmost importance. That being said, you can´t go wrong with these options, many of whom have been best bets to score throughout the season as well.


Running Back


There´s no way that Taylor wouldn´t be on the last Best Bets installment of the season, as he´s been the best bet to score at the RB position for almost the entire season. With 19 TDs in 2021, including 11 in back-to-back games up until last week, Taylor has maintained an absurd 37.23percent TD dependency on more than 300 touches and his likelihood to have a TD be a part of his fantasy scoring profile continues to be prevalent in Week 17. The Colts play the Raiders this week, who´ve allowed the fourth-most TDs (20) to RBs this season and are our fifth-best matchup on the week.


Chubb hasn´t been the scoring machine that Taylor has been over the course of the season, but he´s on a two-game run of games with a TD going into a game versus the Steelers, who´ve given up the sixth-most fantasy points to RBs and are our third-best matchup for opposing RBs going into Week 17. Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield has been struggling as of late, so expect the Browns to continue to lean heavily on Chubb in a game that would take them completely out of playoff contention if they lose.


Williams has found the end zone in four of his past five games as a rookie, usurping Melvin Gordon as the team´s predominant scoring back as the season wears on. This week he´ll face a Chargers team that is one sided in its ability to defend, as they´re a bottom-10 matchup for WRs but a top-10 matchup for opposing RBs, allowing 21 TDs to backs this season. That´s the third-worst mark this season, and they just came off a loss to the Texans in which Rex Burkhead scored twice. Williams could keep his TD streak going.


Montgomery has been a constant for the Bears recently, touching the ball 20 or more times in four of his past five games. He´s scored twice in that time. He´ll face a Giants team in Week 17 that is our 12th-best RB matchup on the week, having given up the eighth-most fantasy points to running backs this season.
