Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Fantasy managers have been critical of Thielen this season, but he's been an incredibly reliable fantasy asset. Over his previous six games, he has yet to finish with less than 7 targets and he has now finished as a top-10 WR each of the past two games. The majority of his production is still dependent upon touchdown production, but we know that Cousins is looking his way when they get down to the red zone. Thielen has now seen 8 targets inside-the-10 this season and he's reeled in all 8 of them - which leads the NFL - for 6 touchdowns. He comes with plenty of upside each week - especially in this matchup - and he is at least providing a decent floor as well. The Lions have tightened things up recently from a fantasy perspective at guarding opposing WRs, but they are not going to have answers for defending this Vikings passing game. Thielen belongs in starting lineups this week as a high-end WR2. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 As much as the Seattle passing game has struggled in the three games since Russell Wilson returned from a finger injury, Lockett has still managed to be productive. He had 4-115-0 against Arizona in Week 11 and 3-96-0 against Washington in Week 12. Over the last three games, has averaged 13.0 yards per target. However, Lockett remains mired in a TD slump. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 2. He's the WR17 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thielen had only 5 fantasy points the last time the Vikings played the Lions and the Lions are 4th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks. Thielen is a boom / bust WR2 in a matchup that favors the Lions running the ball with Alexander Mattison.Lockett has 25 fantasy points over the last 2 weeks, he is a risky WR2 on an offense that is struggling to score points or move the ball.
