The final two weeks of the 2022 NFL schedule regular season is here as Week 17 kicks off on Amazon Thursday Night Football.

For DFS owners the last two weeks of a fully loaded NFL schedule is here while having an exciting action-packed Week 17 NFL schedule to build around.

With teams fighting for playoff positioning, the opportunity for Daily Fantasy Sports owners to cash in on potentially the last full schedule of the NFL is during Week 17 of the 2022 NFL schedule.

Luckily for all DFS owners the schedule delivers a strong list of players on the Top 10 Fantasy Football Players to Start Week 17 of the 2022 NFL schedule list.

As you start to look at Week 17 of the NFL schedule 2022, one matchup that stands out on paper is the New York Giants taking on the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts have had their hands full with opposing running backs of late allowing 394 yards and seven rushing touchdowns over the past four weeks.

With these struggles look for the Giants running back Saquon Barkley to take advantage of that Colts defense as he looks to keep his team in the playoff hunt in the Eastern Conference.

In addition, other notable Top 10 Fantasy Football players to Start Week 17 include Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills, CeeDee Lamb of the Dallas Cowboys, and Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders. Here is a look at the Top 10 Fantasy Football Players Rankings Week 17:

Honorable Mention

Christian Watson

Team: Green Bay Packers

Position: Wide Receiver
Week 17 Matchup: Minnesota Vikings

Just missing the Top 10 Fantasy Football Players to Start Week 17 of the 2022 NFL Schedule rankings list is the Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Christian Watson.

Watson is the only 2022 NFL Draft Class member to make the list while having a strong fantasy matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

Over their last four contests the Vikings have allowed the 2nd most receiving yards (892) in the NFL to go along with four touchdown receptions.

Only concern entering Week 17 is how healthy Watson is after leaving last week’s game with a hip injury.

Tyreek Hill

Team: Miami Dolphins

Position: Wide Receiver
Week 17 Matchup: New England Patriots

One name that could be much higher on the list is the Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Hill currently ranks 2nd in the NFL with 1,632 receiving yards and 2nd in the NFL with 113 receptions.

The speedy wide receiver is a threat to make a big play on any catch while showcasing his ability to be a number one at the position.

As the Dolphins get set for a crucial divisional matchup only thing holding Hill back from a Top 5 spot on the Top Fantasy Football Players to Start list is the fact Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol leading into Week 17.

Week 17 Fantasy Football Rankings

10. Jared Goff

Team: Detroit Lions

Position: Quarterback
Week 17 Matchup: Chicago Bears

In at number 10 on the Top 10 Fantasy Football Players to Start Week 17 of the 2022 NFL Schedule rankings is the Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff.

Goff is having a tremendous season in 2022 passing for 3,959 yards to go along with 26 touchdowns to just seven interceptions.

Goff will get a shot at a Chicago Bears defense that has allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks over the past four weeks including 669 passing yards.

In his first meeting against the Bears Goff threw for 236 yards to go with one passing touchdown.

9. Stefon Diggs

Team: Buffalo Bills

Position: Wide Receiver
Week 17 Matchup: Cincinnati Bengals

Showdown of the NFL Schedule set for Monday Night Football as the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals square off in an AFC battle.

As the teams get set to square off the matchup features two of the best wide receivers in the NFL and two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

This opens up the door for a ton of fantasy points including from Stefon Diggs who currently ranks 3rd in the NFL in receptions with 101, 3rd in receiving yards with 1,325 and 3rd in touchdown receptions with 10.

While the Bengals have a solid defense, they have allowed five touchdown receptions to opposing receivers over their past two games.

8. Patrick Mahomes

Team: Kansas City Chiefs

Position: Quarterback
Week 17 Matchup: Denver Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro quarterback enters Week 17 having an opportunity to join the 5k passing club for the second time in his career.

Currently Mahomes is sitting at 4,720 yards on the season while also throwing for 37 touchdowns to 11 interceptions.

In Week 17 of the NFL Season 2022, Mahomes will look to continue his success against a struggling Denver Broncos defense.

In an earlier showdown this season Mahomes threw for 352 yards to go with three touchdowns and three interceptions in a Chiefs 34-28 win.

7. Miles Sanders

Team: Philadelphia Eagles

Position: Running Back
Week 17 Matchup: New Orleans Saints

Miles Sanders enters Week 17 of the 2022 NFL schedule ranked 5th in the NFL in rushing with 1,175 yards while also ranked tied for 5th with 11 rushing touchdowns.

The Eagles running back has topped the 100-yard mark in two of the teams last five games while finding the end zone in three of the last five games.

Sanders will look to continue that trend this week against a New Orleans Saints defense that has allowed 293 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns over the past two weeks of the season.

6. Davante Adams

Team: Las Vegas Raiders

Position: Wide Receiver
Week 17 Matchup: San Francisco 49ers

Entering Week 17 of the 2022 NFL season, Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders continues to be a big play threat at the position and one that continues to put-up big-time fantasy numbers for his owners.

Through the first 16 weeks of the season Adams has pulled in the most touchdown receptions tied with Travis Kelce while also racking up 1,290 total yards.

Adams and the Raiders face off against a stellar San Francisco 49ers defense. Despite being one of the better defenses in the NFL, the 49ers have allowed the 5th most fantasy points to the receiver position over the course of the season. 

5. Travis Etienne Jr.

Team: Jacksonville Jaguars

Position: Running Back
Week 17 Matchup: Houston Texans

Rounding out the Top 5 on the Top 10 Fantasy Football Players to Start Week 17 of the 2022 NFL Schedule rankings list is the Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne.

As you compare fantasy matchups in Week 17, no other running back stands out on paper more than Etienne Jr who will face off against a Houston Texas defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season including a league high in rushing yards (2,105) and rushing touchdowns (18). In the teams first meeting Etienne racked up 114 combined yards on 13 touches.

4. Travis Kelce

Team: Kansas City Chiefs

Position: Tight End
Week 17 Matchup: Denver Broncos 

Returning to the tops of the tight end rankings is the Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce. Kelce continues to build on what looks to be a Hall of Fame NFL career as he and Patrick Mahomes build on their legacy.

Entering Week 17, Kelce currently ranks tied for 1st in the NFL with 12 touchdown receptions while leading tight ends in receiving yards and touchdown receptions.

Kelce will look to take advantage of a Broncos defense that has allowed 416 yards and two touchdowns to opposing tight ends over the past four weeks.

3. CeeDee Lamb

Team: Dallas Cowboys

Position: Wide Receiver
Week 17 Matchup: Tennessee Titans

Coming off back-to-back 100 plus yard receiving performances CeeDee Lamb continues to be a key weapon within the Dallas Cowboys offensive attack.

Looking back at his last five games, Lamb has pulled in no fewer than five catches while being targeted 11 times twice in that stretch.

With Lamb being the focal point of the Cowboys passing attack, DFS owners have benefited from building their lineups around him.

Look for his success to continue this week against a Tennessee Titans defense that has allowed 812 receiving yards and five touchdown receptions to opposing wide receivers since week 13.

2. Josh Allen

Team: Buffalo Bills

Position: Quarterback
Week 17 Matchup: Cincinnati Bengals

The action of Week 17 of the NFL Schedule 2022 wraps up with a showdown of two of the best passing attacks in the NFL on Monday Night Football.

While Joe Burrow is another strong quarterback to consider, Josh Allen is our number one quarterback option this week as they look to solidify themselves as the top team in the AFC heading into the playoffs.

Allen has passed for at least two touchdowns in four of the Bills last five games while posting six games with at least 300 yards this season. In addition, Allen has rushed for seven touchdowns this season.

1. Saquon Barkley

Team: New York Giants

Position: Running Back
Week 17 Matchup: Indianapolis Colts

In at number one on the Top 10 Fantasy Football Players to Start Week 17 of the 2022 NFL Schedule rankings list is the New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley.

The New York Giants running back ranks 4th in the NFL with 1,254 rushing yards to go along with 11 rushing touchdowns.

Barkley will look to take advantage of an Indianapolis Colts defense that has allowed 394 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns over their past four games.
