Fantasy Impact:

Despite the questionable injury designation he carries entering Week 16, the report from Schefter indicates we will see Thielen on a football field for the first time since Week 13. Given all the injuries and COVID-19 cases in the NFL right now, fantasy managers only have so many players they can even remotely trust. Through 12 weeks of the season, Thielen was the WR7 overall in point per reception scoring. Injury concern aside, that is the player fantasy managers have returning to lineup consideration. Keep this in mind as final decisions are mulled over ahead of kickoff.
