There’s always a few new players to add to a team’s fantasy rosters.
It’s always nice to have a few surprises to play with when the season rolls around.
We’re going to take a look at what we think will make for a great Week 17 NFL team.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Jalen Ramsey, RB, Florida State University Jalen has a ton of upside for a back with a great story line in the running back class.
The sophomore has the ability to run with power, burst and break tackles and was a three-star recruit.
In 2016, he had 579 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on the ground.
Dallas Cowboys: Deionte Lewis, LB, LSU Lewis had an impressive freshman year with a 4.5 grade point average, 31 tackles for loss and three sacks.
He also ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds, which is a great way to get a feel for a guy who is so athletic.
San Francisco 49ers: Jordan Willis, DE, Michigan State Willis had a strong Senior Bowl showing and had a chance to become the team’s next great pass rusher.
He had three sacks, three passes defensed and four tackles for a loss.
New York Giants: Christian Wilkins, DT, Michigan Wilkins was a late round pick in the 2017 draft.
He was a consensus four-star prospect and was projected as a top-five pick.
He has the size, speed and quickness to be a disruptive force in the run game.
Indianapolis Colts: Shaq Lawson, DE/OLB, Clemson Lawson has a great future in Indianapolis.
He played a lot of end in college and has a chance for more success as an outside linebacker.
He’s a physical freak and has great instincts.
Dallas Texans: Marcus Williams, WR, Tennessee Williams has some upside and is a nice value pick in most leagues.
He caught nine passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
Detroit Lions: Jordan Howard, DT/OL, Ohio State The Lions had a great Combine showing, as well as a good draft.
There is some real talent in there, including a guy with a nice story line.
He can play in the 3-technique or a 3-4.
New Orleans Saints: Tre’Davious White, WR/KR, LSU White was an absolute monster in his senior season, which was a big reason he was the top receiver in the draft.
In 2018, he has five touchdown receptions, including an impressive one against the Oakland Raiders.
Buffalo Bills: D.J. Jones, WR (RB), LSU Jones was a four-time first-team All-SEC selection and a consensus three-stars prospect.
He finished the season with 665 receiving yards and nine touchdowns on 82 receptions.
Cleveland Browns: Jordan Leggett, LB/DB, Notre Dame Leggetts was a very good player in college, but he has plenty of potential to develop as a pro.
He showed his potential last year when he was a true freshman, with four tackles, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery.
Oakland Raiders: Derek Barnett, DE (LB), Tennessee Barnett has a lot to work on.
He is a little undersized at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds and doesn’t have the athleticism of some of the top players at his position.
But, he will get the chance to play inside and he has the toughness to play the run.
Chicago Bears: Justin Evans, DT (ILB), Florida Evans has been a sleeper in the middle of the Bears’ defense for a while.
He could be the answer at inside linebacker for a unit that is going to be built around him.
Detroit Vikings: Josh Sweat, DT The Vikings got a solid workout with Sweat in the spring.
They could be looking to see if they can get him to a more consistent level.
San Diego Chargers: Michael Bennett, DE Bennett has been one of the best interior defensive ends in the league and could be a key piece to a Chargers defense that is coming off of a playoff run last year.
Philadelphia Eagles: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State Carr has been the best quarterback in the NFL for a couple of years now.
In 2017, he threw for 3,876 yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on the way to a 10-3 team.
He threw for 2,818 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2018.
Tennessee Titans: DeMarcus Walker, CB, Auburn Walker has a very nice story in Tennessee.
The 6-0, 190-pound cornerback had a lot on his plate at the end of his career, but his production is unreal.
Detroit Panthers: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss In 2017 the Panthers had a very productive season
