Sunday Side Bets: NFL Week 17

Sunday Side Bets: NFL Week 17. For each NFL game on Sunday, we’ll present 2-4 players at a single position group. In addition, we’ll provide a single focus statistic. Then rank the players in the order you think they will finish in that statistical category for the game. You can only rank the players presented. Furthermore, if there is a tie within the statistical category, all tied positions will be considered.

For example, let’s look at Week 14’s Ravens versus Steelers game.

Week 14 Pittsburgh vs Baltimore

Position Group: Wide Receivers

Focus Statistic: Targets

Player Pool: Mike Wallace (BAL), Jeremy Maclin (BAL), Antonio Brown (PIT), Martavius Bryant (PIT)

The Correct Rankings would have been:

  2. Maclin -11
  3. Bryant- 10
  4. Wallace- 5

To win, you must have the rankings 100% correct for every game on the slate. Email your rankings to before Sunday’s contest begin. The winner each week will be eligible for QuarterMaster prizes
