Vikings hopeful Adam Thielen (COVID-19) will return Week 13

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (COVID-19) is uncertain for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

What It Means:

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said he's hopeful that Thielen will be cleared to play after missing Week 12 due to his placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Thielen tested positive for the virus a week ago, but his subsequent results have come back negative, so he seems to have a good chance of getting back out there. Bisi Johnson and Chad Beebe are unlikely to maintain fantasy relevance with Thielen active. Justin Jefferson's target share will also likely take a hit.

Thielen is averaging 15.9 FanDuel points per game, fourth-most among wide receivers. He has earned the second-best receiving grade at his position from Pro Football Focus this season behind Davante Adams. The Jaguars are allowing the sixth-most FanDuel points per game to the wide receiver position.
