 Thielen has managed 410 receiving yards and three touchdowns over the last seven games after clearing 100 yards in each of the first eight contests. He's still fourth in receptions (110) as the PPR WR5, and the Vikings need a win to make the playoffs. Nobody is going to sit him, the Bears are a tough adversary who haven't capitulated a passing touchdown in three weeks. He's a low-end WR1 who can hopefully at least repeat Week 11's seven catches for 66 yards.
Derek Lofland

Mixon has been a bright spot on this offense, he should close the season on a high-note as a RB1 on the road in a tough matchup. Thielen has a tough matchup against the Chicago Bears, but he is still a WR1 at home in a tough matchup.
