Beats have suggested that the loss of Minnesota's starting center may hurt the screen game this week. We shall see.

 Has not put up the numbers the past two weeks, had a poor game @Chicago in week 5

McKinnon received just eight touches against the Packers, marking the second time in three games that he has received fewer than 10 touches. The Bears are tough on opposing running backs, allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points to the position. But the Vikings are one of the few teams that still has something to play for, as they could lose a bye with a loss and a certain combination of outcomes in other games. That should mean that McKinnon will have his usual involvement. Hopefully, that will be more like his customary 14-16 touches, which would keep him in the RB2 discussion.Cold weather or not, Saturday against the Packers was Thielen's second straight poor game, coming at the worst possible time for fantasy owners. He'll now take on a Bears team that is decent against opposing wide receivers, but which lacks a shutdown cornerback and is worse on the road. Try to forget the last two games and focus on his season-long body of work, and start Thielen this week in a game the Vikings will be playing to win.

 Thielen has had back-to-back games with 30 yards receiving or less and the Bears are 16th against fantasy wide receivers. Thielen is a risky WR1 for Week 17.
