Like fellow wideout Robert Woods, Watkins will reportedly play on Sunday against the 49ers, but will see very little action. Even in the good matchup, he's obviously not worth starting in any format in light of his likely limited workload.Murray was unspectacular against the Packers, gaining 75 total yards on 22 touches. But he saw a ton of work, as usual, which always keeps him as a viable fantasy play. The Bears allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, but you're not going to avoid Murray in light of the uncertainty at running back in Week 17. The Vikings could still technically lose out on a bye, so expect them to play their starters, and for Murray to have a decent fantasy day.

 The Bears are 6th against fantasy running backs, Murray is a boom / bust RB2.
