Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Miller has been banged up but is expected to play in Week 17. Even with that being the case, he shouldn't be started in fantasy because his matchup against the Jags is a tough one.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 Coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Lamar Miller (ankle) is "good to go" for Week 17 against the Jaguars. He rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown when these teams met in Week 7.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Thielen has managed 410 receiving yards and three touchdowns over the last seven games after clearing 100 yards in each of the first eight contests. He's still fourth in receptions (110) as the PPR WR5, and the Vikings need a win to make the playoffs. Nobody is going to sit him, the Bears are a tough adversary who haven't capitulated a passing touchdown in three weeks. He's a low-end WR1 who can hopefully at least repeat Week 11's seven catches for 66 yards.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thielen has a tough matchup against the Chicago Bears, but he is still a WR1 at home in a tough matchup.
