Ajayi lost an early fumble against the Falcons, but recovered to gain 98 total yards on 18 touches. He's clearly the main back in Philadelphia, but it's unclear how much that will help him this weekend against the Vikings. Minnesota allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, and will obviously try to limit Ajayi and force Nick Foles to beat them. Still, given the guaranteed 15 touches or so, Ajayi isn't the worst fantasy option at this stage of the game.Thielen continued his run of solid but somewhat mediocre production against the Saints, as Stefon Diggs has taken on a bigger role in recent weeks. His outlook for Sunday's game against the Eagles may depend on if he lines up primarily on the outside, as he did against the Saints, or whether he returns to his usual slot role. He should be in much better shape as a perimeter receiver on Sunday, as the Eagles have struggled to contain that position. If he's in the slot, however, Patrick Robinson's presence puts a damper on Thielen's outlook. Expect the Vikings to look to maximize Thielen's talent by moving him to the outside again, and he should be considered one of the best options this weekend.

The Vikings allow the fewest points to fantasy running backs and they will be keying on the run game. The Eagles running backs are not stellar options this week.Thielen has not topped 100-yards receiving nor scored a touchdown in four straight games. He is still a good fantasy option this week, but not as good as Diggs, who is consistently finding the end zone.
