Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Thomas is the only player to total 15+ fantasy points in PPR this season. This is the type of high-end consistency that is so valuable in fantasy. He should have no problem eclipsing the 15-point mark in this matchup against a terrible Atlanta defense. Plug Thomas into your lineup and don't even worry. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What in the world is going on with Thomas? He's like a machine. If you project him for nine targets, he's likely to wind-up with eight receptions. Why? Dating back to the start of last year, he's caught 198-of-236 targets for an unbelievable 83.4 percent catch-rate. Just how good is that? Wide receivers as a whole averaged a 63.0 percent catch-rate. Keep in mind that Thomas gets the No. 1 cornerback the majority of time, too. Now he gets the Falcons, a team that's allowed 41.6 PPR points per game to opposing wide receivers, including 10 top-25 performances through eight games. They may get Desmond Trufant back, who's missed their last two games due to a hamstring injury, but that's not going to make a big difference, as he's allowed five touchdowns on just 19 targets in coverage this year. You're never contemplating whether to play Thomas in season-long leagues, and there's no reason you should be avoiding him in DFS this week, either. This is the type of matchup that can break the DFS scoreboard, though we do need the Falcons to be able to hang with them for a bit.If you were to ask random fantasy players how Woods should be valued the rest of the season, there would be a lot of them who'd tell you he's a low-end WR2. Well, if you were to go through his games, he's finished inside the top-24 receivers just once all year. Keep in mind that he ranks 20th in targets among wide receivers and has garnered 12 carries as well. He's had some bad touchdown luck, though, as he Mike Williams, and Davante Adams are the only receivers with more than 350 yards without a touchdown. The matchup he'll have this week is Joe Haden, who's been stationary at LCB, which is where Woods lines up most of the time. He's allowed 23-of-36 passing in his coverage for 242 yards and two touchdowns, so he's not unbeatable, but it's also not a plus-matchup. Zach Pascal was the first receiver since Week 2 who finished with more than 12.2 PPR points against the Steelers, so it'd be odd to expect two Rams receivers to hit that mark, especially with Goff struggling. Knowing Kupp is the clear-cut No. 1 here, Woods should be considered a WR3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 29th against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should have a monster game at home coming off his bye week.The Steelers are 18th against fantasy wide receivers, Woods should have WR3 appeal on the road in a tough matchup.
