MIA has allowed two WR TDS in 3 of last 4Scattershot Winston can hurt his outlook again in tough matchup
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.Evans has received as many targets as Chris Godwin (20) over the last three games, and both of them trail Adam Humphries (23). The decaying volume is particularly troubling entering a matchup against the Ravens, who leads the NFL in opposing completion percentage (58.8) and yards per pass attempt (6.2). They haven't allowed a receiver to score in the last three games, a stretch including matchups at Atlanta and Kansas City. Those expecting a WR1 performance from Evans will likely leave Week 15 disappointed, but nobody is saying to bench a guy averaging 92.8 yards per contest.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Miami is 18th against fantasy wide receivers, Thielen should have a WR1 day at home in a great matchup. Baltimore is 3rd against fantasy wide receivers, Evans is a low-upside WR2 in a very tough matchup on the road.
