Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
His 100-yard streak ended last week, so he needs to start it up again this week. Thomas is the best receiver in fantasy, and while the Niners are terrific against the pass, their defense isn't made to stop what Thomas does. The Saints use Thomas underneath a ton, with the slant being deadly. The Niners play to not get beat, which is terrific when they play with a lead. Teams aren't able to go over the top on them, but Thomas doesn't need the big play to be a WR1. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The 49ers are 3rd against fantasy wide receivers, but Thomas is arguably the most matchup proof wide receiver in the NFL. He is still a WR1 at home in a tough matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was the first game all year where Thomas was held to less than 54 yards, and it was just the second time he finished with less than eight receptions. That's nuts. The matchup in Week 14 doesn't make things easy to bounce back, as the 49ers have had one of the stiffest pass defenses in the league. They've allowed just two receivers to top 88 yards all season, and oddly enough, both of them came in the same game. That was way back in Week 2 when Tyler Boyd and John Ross both went over the century mark. It'll be interesting to see strength versus strength, as the 49ers have allowed just a 56.1 percent completion-rate to receivers, while Thomas has caught a ridiculous 83.3 percent of his targets this year. You know Thomas has caught at least eight receptions in 10-of-12 games this year, but the 49ers have allowed just two receivers to record more than six catches all year. Just two weeks ago we saw Davante Adams see 12 targets and turn them into 7/43/1, which highlights just how difficult the matchup is. You're starting Thomas as a WR1 in season-long but it's not a week you must play him in DFS.
