Fantasy football Week 10: Start or sit Adam Thielen Sunday?

This post was originally published on this site

The Minnesota Vikings outside wide receivers have a tough road ahead in Washington. Slot receiver Adam Thielen has a great Week 10 matchup on the other hand. Washington struggles against passers lining up inside, allowing at least 30 receiving yards to a slot receiver in every game this season.

Thielen stepped up his game of late to help fill the void Stefon Diggs left when he went down in Week 5. In two of the last three games, he had over 90 yards receiving. Thielen finally got his first touchdown of the season Sunday in London vs. the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy impact: Thielen is a great fantasy play this week. Diggs is back, and he will get most of Washington’s attention. Washington is good at shutting down outside receivers but sputters to stop wideouts lining up inside. With over 10 targets per game the last three games, Thielen has a chance to go off Sunday.

Recommendation: Start
