Murray had two touchdowns last week and he could still be in the flex conversation against a bad Lions run defense.Thomas will have QB Paxton Lynch under center this week, he is a boom / bust WR2 with another shaky quarterback behind center.
Dan Harris

Murray had a huge game against the Rams, scoring two touchdowns and accounting for more than 100 total yards. He's quietly been more effective than Jerick McKinnon over recent weeks, and now has four touchdowns in his last four games. The Lions allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, though they are far weaker against pass-catching backs, which favors McKinnon in this game. Still, Murray's recent performance and his guaranteed touches leave him as a borderline RB2 on Thanksgiving.
