MIA has allowed two WR TDS in 3 of last 4Ran very well last week but workload is uncertain
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Thielen has morphed into a mere mortal, collecting 304 yards over his last five games after previously clearing 100 in every bout. This says little besides the fact that he was not able to maintain the best season in NFL history. He's still a WR1 against the Dolphins, who just coughed up nine catches for 86 yards and a touchdown to Julian Edelman from the slot. Thielen would especially attract Kirk Cousins' attention if Xavien Howard returns from a meniscus injury to cover Stefon Diggs, but both wideouts can return to prominence against a defense relinquishing 12.4 yards per reception. Don't drop him too far down the rankings.For all of his inconsistencies, Ingram is the RB21 since making his season debut in Week 5. As a fairly touchdown-dependent rusher operating in the NFC's top scoring offense, that's around the range where he belongs. There's some risk to playing him on the road against Carolina's seventh-ranked rushing defense, but there's also too much touchdown upside to take him off the grid as a flex play or low-tier RB2.

Miami is 18th against fantasy wide receivers, Thielen should have a WR1 day at home in a great matchup. The Panthers are 6th against fantasy running backs.
