NFL Week 17: Betting, Fantasy, Breakdowns, Matchups and More

Can the Miami Dolphins clinch one of the two remaining playoff spots in the AFC? How about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Giants, and Washington Commanders in the NFC, where only three spots remain up for grabs?

Will we see either the Buffalo Bills or Philadelphia Eagles clinch the top seed and lone first-round bye in their respective conferences?

Are we in store for more big changes out of eliminated teams, after a week where the Broncos fired head coach Nathaniel Hackett and the Raiders benched longtime quarterback Derek Carr?

As we get set for this weekend’s Week 17 matchups, The 33rd Team’s experts — with more than 1,000 years of NFL coaching, playing and executive experience — break down the weekend’s games, including fantasy, DFS and betting analysis from some of the industry’s best.
