This, surprisingly, should be a very interesting game with plenty of fantasy implications, so it's nice that we will have an intriguing piece of the Jaguars' offense back as a part of it. Between Weeks 7-9, Etienne was the RB5 with 22.6 half-PPR points per game, and he will look to start a new streak of RB1 performances against this Detroit team that has allowed the most rushing touchdowns and third-most rushing yards to opposing offenses.
JAX RB Travis Etienne - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Houston Texans
It was tough sledding for Travis Etienne against the Jets in Week 16. He saw 22 carries, but could only muster 83 yards on the ground. Etienne caught all three of his targets for 29 yards, giving him 20+ receiving yards in back-to-back games. Etienne managed 12.7 Half PPR points, good for RB15 on the week.
Etienne could not ask for a much better matchup for himself and his fantasy managers in Week 17. The Texans rank 29th in aFPA to running backs, allowing a league-high 2,104 rushing yards to tailbacks this season. Assuming he sees a normal workload, Etienne should be among the top scorers in the running back position this week.
