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.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.

 Tampa Bay allows the most points to fantasy receivers, Thomas is a strong WR1 this week.
