Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Watkins really enjoyed Robert Woods' absence, and he's now scored in five of his last six games. But Woods should return this weekend against the Seahawks, which puts a damper on Watkins' outlook. The Seahawks' passing defense hasn't been quite as good without Richard Sherman, but it's still been decent, and without guaranteed targets, Watkins returns to being more of a high-end WR4 this weekend.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Indianapolis was bad to begin with in the secondary, but now there are all injured so it is about as easy of a matchup as you will find this week. Thomas has been seeing a load of targets and getting in the end zone so use him confidently as a WR2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He scored a touchdown with a quarterback not named Brock Osweiler! Rejoice, Thomas owners! But seriously, he hadn't scored with a non-Osweiler quarterback since Week 10 of last year. The Colts don't have a cornerback near the talent level of Thomas, as they are left trotting out an all-rookie squad of Quincy Wilson, Kenny Moore, and Nate Hairston. We didn't get to see them perform much in Week 14 because of the snow, but even Kelvin Benjamin was able to make a fantasy impact. The prior week, they allowed the combination of Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole combine for 213 yards and two touchdowns. With Emmanuel Sanders at less-than-100-percent, Thomas has the looks of an ultra-safe WR2.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thomas has a great matchup, but a horrible quarterback situation, making him a volatile WR3.
