CHI was the 2nd worst run D in terms of fantasy points given allowed to running backs. With few improvements along that front in the offseason, fire up Fred and CJ.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Another TD vulture here but he's probably more of a Flex play despite the solid matchup.
Thomas carries a stick in PPR formats but in standard he could be a bit ho hum in this one.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
I truly believe that Fred Jackson will be a top 30 back again this season. Maybe not the top 15 back he was in 2013 but still very startable in deeper leagues and as an every week flex.
 
  
Derek Lofland

The Falcons have a terrible front seven, I think Thomas could have a big game in the screen game.
