Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Has not put up the numbers the past two weeks, had a poor game @Chicago in week 5 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Cold weather or not, Saturday against the Packers was Thielen's second straight poor game, coming at the worst possible time for fantasy owners. He'll now take on a Bears team that is decent against opposing wide receivers, but which lacks a shutdown cornerback and is worse on the road. Try to forget the last two games and focus on his season-long body of work, and start Thielen this week in a game the Vikings will be playing to win. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thielen has had back-to-back games with 30 yards receiving or less and the Bears are 16th against fantasy wide receivers. Thielen is a risky WR1 for Week 17.
