Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
With all the injuries Patriots' running backs have sustained, it is no wonder Lewis saw 29 touches last week. We may see more of the same in Week 17 with home field advantage on the line so consider him an RB1. 
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee are out, while James White is questionable. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jets are just 19th against fantasy running backs, Lewis has RB1 upside for Week 17.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
FantasyPros
Some may wonder if Lewis will be rested for Week 17, but the Patriots are still playing for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
