Dan Harris

Thomas somehow missed out on all the scoring in Week 6 against the Lions, being held to just three catches and 11 yards. The Saints defense put up plenty of points, and Thomas was matched up with Darius Slay, which likely led to Drew Brees not forcing him targets. This week should be a different story against the Packers, even though they are expected to get Kevin King back from a concussion. Thomas is not the type of receiver who can get completely shut down by a cornerback, and even if he was, King does not have that talent level. Expect Brees to try to make up for last week with Thomas against a beatable secondary, and start Thomas as a top-five option.Evans has had a bizarre season, in that he hasn't been efficient at all, but is seeing such a high volume of targets (47) and scoring so many touchdowns (three), that he's providing fantasy owners with almost exactly what they expected. The Bills are solid, though not elite, against opposing wide receivers, but lack a true shutdown corner, which should mean positive things for Evans. Regardless of whether it's Ryan Fitzpatrick or Jameis Winston throwing him the ball, Evans should again see plenty of targets and finish as a WR1.

Thomas goes against Green Bay's 18th ranked fantasy receiver defense, he should be an elite fantasy option this week.Evans draws a Buffalo D that is 5th against fantasy receivers, but Evans is good enough to maintain WR1 value in any matchup.
