Adam Thielen activated for Vikings from COVID-19 list

The Minnesota Vikings activated wide receiver Adam Thielen off the COVID-19 reserve list.

What It Means:

Thielen is on track to play in Sunday's Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars after missing last week's game. His return will likely take a majority of snaps and targets from Bisi Johnson and Chad Beebe. Justin Jefferson remains an attractive option even with Thielen active. In the last game he played, Thielen had 8 catches for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Thielen is the WR12 in numberFire's Week 13 fantasy rankings. He has a salary of $7,800 on FanDuel's main slate against a Jaguars defense allowing the sixth-most FanDuel points per game to the wide receiver position this season.
