Fantasy Tip: Diggs has caught eight or more passes in four of his last five games, and he should continue to be a strong WR3 with WR2 upside in PPR formats. He is an inviting matchup with Jacksonville on tap in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has logged 15 catches on 20 targets over the last two games, and the chemistry he has with Sam Bradford is undeniable. He is a viable WR3 option in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford appears to have avoided a serious injury, but his value is limited to leagues that start two quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford took a hard shot and appeared to be in pain as he walked off the field. Given his injury history, the situation needs to be monitored.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs has decisively become quarterback Sam Bradford's favorite target, so it's safe to get him back in starting lineups everywhere. Unfortunately, this will hurt those who were hoping to ride Adam Thielen another week, as his value goes down significantly with Diggs back in uniform.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs missed the previous game because of the injury but appears to be ready for his normal workload in Week 13. He should see plenty of targets against the Dallas Cowboys and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has posted at least 50 yards in five of his last seven games and as two touchdowns in his last three games. He should see a decent amount of targets against the Dallas Cowboys and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has struggled at times this season and has thrown at least two touchdowns in only on one of his last six games. Owners in most leagues can find a better option to start and can pass on Bradford.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs appears to have a solid chance to play against the Dallas Cowboys, but owners will need to check the inactives list before deciding on their lineups. Diggs will be the No. 1 target in the passing game if he plays and should be considered a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen's fantasy value decreases this week with the likely return of Stefon Diggs. That doesn't necessarily mean he should be benched, though. He has found the endzone twice in his last three games and at least deserves consideration as a flex start.
Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:01:00 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bradford has quietly thrown 12 touchdowns to just three interceptions on the season, although his 6.94 yards per completion leaves something to be desired. He's one somewhat of a cold streak of late, however, throwing just three touchdowns and two interceptions in his last three outings while averaging a measly 233 yards per game. Bradford is a backup fantasy quarterback.
