 Has not put up the numbers the past two weeks, had a poor game @Chicago in week 5
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Thomas played against the Falcons after cropping up on the injury report, but he was in on just 63% of the snaps, suggesting that his hamstring may have been bothering him. The Saints still need a victory to secure the NFC South, and there were no reports of any setbacks, so expect Thomas to be out there on Sunday against the Bucs. Tampa Bay allows the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, so absent reports that he will be limited again, Thomas makes an excellent option in Week 17.Cold weather or not, Saturday against the Packers was Thielen's second straight poor game, coming at the worst possible time for fantasy owners. He'll now take on a Bears team that is decent against opposing wide receivers, but which lacks a shutdown cornerback and is worse on the road. Try to forget the last two games and focus on his season-long body of work, and start Thielen this week in a game the Vikings will be playing to win.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Tampa Bay allows the most points to fantasy receivers, Thomas is a strong WR1 this week.Thielen has had back-to-back games with 30 yards receiving or less and the Bears are 16th against fantasy wide receivers. Thielen is a risky WR1 for Week 17.
