Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Rankings

Justin Jefferson Note

It's hard to find any sort of issue with Jefferson lately from a fantasy perspective. Over the last four games, he is 7th in the NFL at the WR position in targets, 8th in receptions, 1st in receiving yards, and tied for the second-most receiving touchdowns. On top of all of that, he is the WR1 over that time frame and he's helping lead fantasy rosters to victories. After doing all that, he now is rewarded with about as nice of a matchup as you can find for opposing WRs. He should draw primary coverage this week from Amni Oruwariye, who is allowing a 66% catch rate on the season and 1.13 Yards Per Route Covered. Jefferson's going to put together a solid performance here in Week 13 and he should be viewed as a locked-in top-5 play.

Adam Thielen Note

Fantasy managers have been critical of Thielen this season, but he's been an incredibly reliable fantasy asset. Over his previous six games, he has yet to finish with less than 7 targets and he has now finished as a top-10 WR each of the past two games. The majority of his production is still dependent upon touchdown production, but we know that Cousins is looking his way when they get down to the red zone. Thielen has now seen 8 targets inside-the-10 this season and he's reeled in all 8 of them - which leads the NFL - for 6 touchdowns. He comes with plenty of upside each week - especially in this matchup - and he is at least providing a decent floor as well. The Lions have tightened things up recently from a fantasy perspective at guarding opposing WRs, but they are not going to have answers for defending this Vikings passing game. Thielen belongs in starting lineups this week as a high-end WR2.
