Fake Teams
 If he suits up, he will be the second option behind Dion Lewis. Gillislee and Burkhead are already ruled out.
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.
