SharePoint 2016 with SQL server

Yes, you can use it, as it is supported version with SharePoint 2016. But if you are using the BI functionality then SQL Server 2017 no longer includes SQL Server Reporting Services integration with SharePoint.

Supported combinations of SharePoint and Reporting Services server

This means that you must stick with SQL Server 2016 for SSRS integration with SharePoint Server 2016 or move to SSRS Native, however like past versions of SSRS, you can host downlevel SSRS database on an uplevel version of SQL Server (e.g., SSRS 2016 databases on SQL Server 2017).
