Freeman really disappointed against the Saints, gaining just 56 total yards and losing a fumble, at the goal-line no less! Tevin Coleman's return left Freeman's touches lacking, and his poor performance certainly cost his fantasy owners. If you play through Week 17, you couldn't ask for a much worse matchup for Freeman than the Panthers, which allow the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. His success on the year keeps him as a start, but not as a particularly enticing one.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.

Freeman had only 64 yards from scrimmage the last time these teams played, but at home, he should be a RB1.
