Andrew Gould

The fantasy community is finally asking whether Thielen is the top wideout following his sixth consecutive 100-yard showing. He is this week with Antonio Brown on a bye and Michael Thomas at Baltimore. Minnesota's superstar has also crossed the pylons in three straight contests, and the Jets are dealing with injuries to Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps), Buster Skrine (concussion) and Marcus Maye (broken thumb) after forfeiting over 300 passing yards in each of the last three games.At this point, wouldn't be it be fun for Jones to break the single-season record for receiving yards without a single touchdown? He's on pace to finish 79 yards shy of Calvin Johnson's 1,964. Having allowed four receiving touchdowns to wideouts (including two to Alshon Jeffery in Week 6) this season, the Giants aren't the ideal opponent to break the end-zone drought. Yet Janoris Jenkins is coming off a rough Thursday-night showing, and it still wouldn't be surprising to see Jones eventually make up for lost time. He's the WR11 (WR6 in PPR) without the benefit of any end-zone trips, so keep trotting him out as an elite option.

The Jets are just 25th against fantasy receivers and Thielen has had a 100 yard game in all six games this season. He is a slam-dunk WR1 this week. Jones was targeted 14 times and he had 10 receptions for 143 last week. He remains a WR1, but it is troubling that he has not found the end zone yet this season.
