Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 With Thielen moved around so often, look for the Vikings to get him in advantageous positions to get catches in Week 7 against an improved Lions defense.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jets are 19th against fantasy running backs, Michel is a RB2 on the road on Monday Night this week.The Lions are just 19th against fantasy wide receivers, Thielen should be a WR1 on the road this week.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Sony Michel is still averaging a sub-par 3.5 yards per attempt this season, but he only has one game all season with less than 15 carries. He can be frustrating, but using the lead RB on one of the league's best offenses is rarely a bad thing.
