Adam Thielen Not Expected To Play Sunday

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen isn't expected to play in Week 12 against the Panthers after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, according to a source. Thilen remains on the team's COVID-19 list, barring a change this weekend. It's a crushing blow to any fantasy managers that were relying on Thielen, the league leader with 11 touchdowns, to get them into the fantasy playoffs. Rookie Justin Jefferson, who has already proven to be a must-start fantasy asset, is likely to see double-digit targets in this one with Thielen sidelined. OlaBisi Johnson, Tajae Sharpe and Chad Beebe will fight for targets behind Jefferson, but none of that trio is a particularly intriguing deep-league flex play as a sleeper.

Adam Thielen's Status Remains Up In The Air

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen's status for Week 12 against the Panthers remains up in the air after he tested positive for COVID-19. Head coach Mike Zimmer said on Wednesday that he doesn't know if Thielen will be cleared to play on Sunday. The team's top wideout was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that Thielen also had a negative test. Further testing will determine if it was a false positive. Fantasy manager need to keep a close eye on this situation, as the 30-year-old wideout is a must-start if he's cleared after he scored two touchdowns in Week 11. Rookie Justin Jefferson would be quarterback Kirk Cousins' primary target if Thielen were to be ruled out.

Vikings Put Adam Thielen On COVID-19 List

The Minnesota Vikings placed wide receiver Adam Thielen on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. It's not immediately clear whether Thielen actually tested positive for the virus or if he's just a high-risk close contact of another individual on the team or otherwise that tested positive for COVID-19. If Thielen is just a high-risk close contact, he has a shot at playing in Week 12 against the Panthers if he continues to test negative while quarantining all week. But this news will put his availability in question for this weekend. Thielen has 123 yards receiving in Week 11 and has four touchdowns in the last two weeks, so losing him would be big for fantasy managers and the Vikings. Rookie Justin Jefferson would become the team's top wideout, with OlaBisi Johnson and Tajae Sharpe or Chad Beebe likely joining him in three-wide sets.
