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.

 This is one where I'm going to have to bite the bullet, as Henry didn't get the role I expected him to against the 49ers last week. Instead, the Titans decided to ride their 29-year-old running back, giving him 19 touches, which was more than double Henry's touch count. They appear content with mediocrity, so why should we assume it changes now? The Rams have been a matchup to target most of the year, though volume has been hard to come by, as three of their last four opponents ran the ball 20 or fewer times, so it's not shocking to see they're in the top-12 for fewest rushing attempts allowed. They have allowed a massive 4.61 yards per attempt on the year (third-most) with 11 touchdowns (seventh-most), so the hope is there for both Titans running backs.
