The Vikings are banged-up entering Thursday Night Football against the Steelers. Adam Thielen (ankle) has been ruled out, while Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is questionable and missed last week’s game. Their absences could leave Justin Jefferson as a major threat on offense, but it should also allow others to step up. Minnesota has the No. 6 total offense in the league, so any player with a prominent role deserves consideration for your NFL DFS lineups and NFL DFS stacks.
Receiver K.J. Osborn is the next man up in Thielen’s place and will face a Steelers team that has ruled out cornerback Joe Haden for Thursday Night Football. Thielen was being targeted over eight times per game before he was hurt, so should you include Osborn in your NFL DFS strategy? Which Minnesota pass-catchers will rise to the top of the NFL DFS player pool in Vikings vs. Steelers?
