Beats have suggested that the loss of Minnesota's starting center may hurt the screen game this week. We shall see.

McKinnon received just eight touches against the Packers, marking the second time in three games that he has received fewer than 10 touches. The Bears are tough on opposing running backs, allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points to the position. But the Vikings are one of the few teams that still has something to play for, as they could lose a bye with a loss and a certain combination of outcomes in other games. That should mean that McKinnon will have his usual involvement. Hopefully, that will be more like his customary 14-16 touches, which would keep him in the RB2 discussion.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.
