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.Thomas played against the Falcons after cropping up on the injury report, but he was in on just 63% of the snaps, suggesting that his hamstring may have been bothering him. The Saints still need a victory to secure the NFC South, and there were no reports of any setbacks, so expect Thomas to be out there on Sunday against the Bucs. Tampa Bay allows the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, so absent reports that he will be limited again, Thomas makes an excellent option in Week 17.

Freeman had only 64 yards from scrimmage the last time these teams played, but at home, he should be a RB1.Tampa Bay allows the most points to fantasy receivers, Thomas is a strong WR1 this week.
