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

 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.
