Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 With all the injuries Patriots' running backs have sustained, it is no wonder Lewis saw 29 touches last week. We may see more of the same in Week 17 with home field advantage on the line so consider him an RB1.
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
 Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee are out, while James White is questionable.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Buccaneers are just 24th against fantasy running backs, the Saints need to play their starters to win a game that would clinch the NFC South. Kamara is a RB1 for the fantasy playoffs. The Jets are just 19th against fantasy running backs, Lewis has RB1 upside for Week 17.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Kamara had a down game for him against the Falcons in Week 16, totaling 90 yards on 19 touches. The fact that 90 total yards is a huge disappointment shows just how dominant Kamara has been. The Saints still need a win (or a Panthers loss) to win their division, so you can bet they'll be as motivated to play as ever next week against the Bucs. Tampa Bay has struggled to stop the run all year, which leaves Kamara as a top option, as always. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Some may wonder if Lewis will be rested for Week 17, but the Patriots are still playing for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
