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.Murray scored a touchdown against the Saints, but did little else with 21 touches. He's clearly the go-to guy near the end zone, but he'll have a tough matchup against the Eagles. Philadelphia allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs and, to the extent they have a weakness there, it's too pass-catching backs. That could mean more involvement for Jerick McKinnon, though neither back makes a particularly safe option.

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. The Eagles are 2nd against fantasy running backs, Murray does not have a great matchup this week.
