Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Jeffery presents an interesting dilemma for fantasy owners in Week 17. On the one hand, with the No. 1 seed locked up, the Eagles are likely to pull their starters early against Dallas. On the other, Jeffery is coming off a game where he was shut out entirely, and he and Nick Foles need to work on their chemistry. The prudent bet is for Foles and Jeffery to both play the first half, and for Foles to target him heavily in an attempt to get on the same page. That should be enough to make Jeffery a startable option against a Cowboys team that gives up a ton of points to wide receivers. Jeffery's upside is likely limited given that he probably won't play a full game, but he should make the most of the two quarters or so that he's likely to play.

Manny Sanders is out and Paxton Lynch is his quarterback. 
Derek Lofland

The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy receivers and they will likely rest key players. Thomas has a chance to close out 2017 on a high note.
