Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Kupp went for 7/92 last week, and based on the lofty bar he's set for himself, that was a down game. Kupp is a locked-in top-5 WR every single week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cooper Kupp didn't put up an out-of-this-world performance in week five, but he was still dominant on the field. Kupp saw 10 targets and he reeled in seven of them for 92 yards, yet fantasy managers are seemingly disappointed. With the historic pace that Kupp was on earlier this season, anything less than 150 yards and a touchdown seems like it's falling short of expectations. However, he was still solid and there's no reason why we should move off of valuing him as a top-5 option. Looking ahead to week six, Kupp will now get to take on the Giants secondary that is coming off of a rough performance against the Cowboys. New York just allowed both CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper to average over 20 Yards Per Reception and they each found the end zone in week five. Kupp belongs right back in your lineups as a top-5 WR in week six. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 Thielen and Justin Jefferson both missed practice Wednesday, Thielen with a foot injury, Jefferson with an ankle injury. It might not be a bad idea to leave Thielen on your bench this week even if the foot issue is minor. He faces a Carolina defense that's been tough against the pass. Thielen has been held to 50 receiving yards or fewer in four straight games, and he's averaging just 1.34 yards per route run, almost a full yard lower than Jefferson (2.33). Thielen is ranked WR31 this week and even that feels generous. He'll slide further if there are any questions whatsoever about his medical outlook later in the week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kupp has not scored a TD in back-to-back weeks after scoring 5 TDs in the first 3 games. Kupp looks to return to WR1 form against a Giants D that is 17th against fantasy wide receivers.Thielen has tailed off in his last two games with just 5 receptions for 86 yards. He is a boom / bust WR3 on the road against a Panthers team that is 5th against fantasy wide receivers.
