Running back

Breece Hall, New York Jets: The Jets struggled against the Browns on Thursday night but Breece Hall followed up a huge Week 16 performance with another solid game, so long as your league is a PPR league.

Hall had 84 yards rushing but where he really did his damage was as a receiver, catching nine passes for 42 yards and a touchdown.

Travis Etienne, Jacksonville Jaguars: Travis Etienne was a guy who didn't quite fulfill what most managers were hoping for at times this season, but if those who had him were still around for the final game, they were thrilled with what he did. Etienne burned the Carolina Panthers for 102 yards and two touchdowns on the ground while adding four receptions for 39 yards.

Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams: Kyren Williams has been one of the biggest stories in fantasy football this year, coming out of nowhere to be one of the most dependable backs in the league. He found the end zone three times on Sunday against the New York Giants and had 101 scrimmage yards on the day.

James Conner, Arizona Cardinals: It's not likely that many saw this coming, but James Conner ran all over the Philadelphia Eagles. He had 128 yards rushing on 26 carries and scored a touchdown. If you actually had him in your championship lineup, good call.
