 Has not put up the numbers the past two weeks, had a poor game @Chicago in week 5
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ajayi's role has continued to grow, and he gained 73 total yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Raiders. With the No. 1 seed locked up, it's likely that the Eagles will rest some of their starters next weekend against the Cowboys. Ajayi will probably see a few snaps, but it's unlikely that they will be meaningful. Wait for word from Philadelphia this week, but don't plan on starting Ajayi if you play through Week 17.Cold weather or not, Saturday against the Packers was Thielen's second straight poor game, coming at the worst possible time for fantasy owners. He'll now take on a Bears team that is decent against opposing wide receivers, but which lacks a shutdown cornerback and is worse on the road. Try to forget the last two games and focus on his season-long body of work, and start Thielen this week in a game the Vikings will be playing to win.

 Thielen has had back-to-back games with 30 yards receiving or less and the Bears are 16th against fantasy wide receivers. Thielen is a risky WR1 for Week 17.
