 This may be the final game of Marshawn's career, and while the Chargers have been hot lately, they still can't defend the run. He should see 20+, maybe even 25+ touches again this week so he is a fringe RB1.
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
The Niners are favored...what? 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Rams are 29th against fantasy running backs and the Rams will be resting starters. Hyde is a RB1 for Week 17.The Chargers are just 20th against fantasy running backs, Lynch will close the season as a mid-tier RB2.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Hyde found the end zone against the Jaguars on Sunday, but had a relatively mediocre day otherwise. His production has actually waned a bit with the addition of Jimmy Garoppolo, though he remains in the weekly RB2 discussion weekly. That's at least where he'll remain in Week 17 against a Rams team that has been generous to opposing running backs, and may decide to rest some starters on defense. Hyde will make a fine play next week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
One of the best plays in Week 17, Hyde will go against a Rams team who is likely to rest a bunch of their starters. Of course, that's not to mention that the Rams aren't a good run defense to begin with, and have allowed over 4.5 yards per carry along with 12 rushing touchdowns on the season. With Jimmy Garoppolo playing the way he is, Hyde should continue to get scoring opportunities.
