Week 17 is the time of the fantasy season to avoid certain rosters at all costs when it comes to picking starters. The six that come to mind this season are Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, the Giants, Pittsburgh and Tennessee. The first two are out because their offenses are completely out of synch, while the last four are eliminated because their playoff spots cannot be changed with a win in Week 17.

The common fantasy denominator for these teams is most of them have players who are often considered high-upside flex picks, so the first part of this week's Pass Plays will highlight three high-upside wide receiver flex alternatives.
