Thielen has developed into one of the most reliable receivers in all of fantasy football, and there's no reason for his run to end on Thanksgiving against the Lions. Darius Slay is the strength of the Lions secondary, but he doesn't play in the slot, which should leave Thielen matched up with Quandre Diggs. That's a matchup that Thielen can and should win easily, leaving him as a strong WR1 play.

Adam Thielen scores 65-yard touchdown in Week 11 win

Adam Thielen snared 6-of-9 targets for 123 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams, including a 65-yard catch-and-run touchdown to seal the game for the Viks.

Fantasy Impact

Thielen is the undisputed top dog in Minnesota now after dominating Case Keenum's attention for the third straight week. Thielen's 31-17 target advantage over Stefon Diggs over the past three games is surprising until you realize Thielen is the NFL's second-leading receiver with 916 yards through 11 weeks. Thielen is no fluke, he's a 2017 fantasy stud. Expect teams to start paying more attention to the thriving Thielen down the stretch however, as Diggs was still lining up opposite opposing no. 1 corners even last week. That will change soon enough.
