 Stewart really disappointed in Week 16 in a good matchup against the Bucs, gaining just 18 total yards on eight touches. The Panthers have a chance at the division with a win against the Falcons in Week 17, so Stewart should at least see his normal volume of work. Unfortunately, that won't necessarily translate into much success, as the Falcons are decent against traditional runners (though they struggle against pass-catching backs). Stewart's guaranteed work keeps him in the Flex conversation, but his disappointing Week 16 performance should linger for quite awhile.

This is one where I'm going to have to bite the bullet, as Henry didn't get the role I expected him to against the 49ers last week. Instead, the Titans decided to ride their 29-year-old running back, giving him 19 touches, which was more than double Henry's touch count. They appear content with mediocrity, so why should we assume it changes now? The Rams have been a matchup to target most of the year, though volume has been hard to come by, as three of their last four opponents ran the ball 20 or fewer times, so it's not shocking to see they're in the top-12 for fewest rushing attempts allowed. They have allowed a massive 4.61 yards per attempt on the year (third-most) with 11 touchdowns (seventh-most), so the hope is there for both Titans running backs.
