Thomas has secured an NFL-high 120 receptions, but he may not get a chance to significantly bolster that tally. Locked into the NFC's top seed, the Saints could take it easy on him and other key starters to prepare for the postseason. While Sean Payton hasn't said if the receiver will rest, it seems likely with Teddy Bridgewater spelling Drew Brees. Thomas could either deliver another WR1 showing or a goose egg, so it's hard to treat him as a top-30 option due to the volatility. A true rarity during this bizarre season, Adams has never let fantasy investors down. He has recorded 100 yards and/or a touchdown in each of the last 11 games. His worst outing of the season: Week 4's eight catches for 81 yards against Tre'Davious White's Bills. That streak will unfortunately come to an end, as he'll miss Week 17 with a knee injury. With Aaron Rodgers running out of options, Marques Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow could receive plenty of work against the Lions.

 Adams is going to be chasing the Packers record for receptions and yards in a single season, he should have a big role against a bad Lions secondary.
