The fantasy community is finally asking whether Thielen is the top wideout following his sixth consecutive 100-yard showing. He is this week with Antonio Brown on a bye and Michael Thomas at Baltimore. Minnesota's superstar has also crossed the pylons in three straight contests, and the Jets are dealing with injuries to Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps), Buster Skrine (concussion) and Marcus Maye (broken thumb) after forfeiting over 300 passing yards in each of the last three games.Cooks played a week after suffering a concussion, but he caught just two passes in an uncharacteristically sluggish day from the Rams's passing offense. He's still on pace for 1,346 receiving yards despite taking a goose-egg in Week 5, so expect better days against San Francisco's 25th-ranked passing defense.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jets are just 25th against fantasy receivers and Thielen has had a 100 yard game in all six games this season. He is a slam-dunk WR1 this week. San Francisco is 23rd against fantasy wide receivers and Cooks should benefit from having the concussion another week behind him.
