Week 12: at Detroit Lions

All WR vs DET

FBG says: Tough matchup. Case Keenum did a great job in a tough matchup against the Rams last week as he led the Vikings to a statement victory. Keenum passed for at least 280 yards for the third straight week and had his first game without an interception since Week 5. Keenum has now completed over 70% of his passes for two straight weeks as he is making a great case to retain the starting job while Teddy Bridgewater continues to warm the bench. Adam Thielen is absolutely balling out this season as he continued his dominance last week with six receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. Thielen now has a touchdown in three straight games after failing to find the end zone in his first seven outings, averaging just under 130 receiving yards per game across that span and ranking as the league's top fantasy wide receiver in points per game since Week 8. Stefon Diggs has taken a back seat to Thielen as he has just four receptions in each of his last three games with a couple of games below 35 total yards over that span. Last week, Diggs was up against tough coverage while Thielen was matched up against a rookie--so take that into consideration as well. Kyle Rudolph had a good game last week as he finished with a season-high 58 receiving yards. While he is not putting up huge numbers with just two touchdowns in his last six games, Rudolph remains consistently involved in the offense as he has between five and six receptions in each those last six games. The Lions have had very soft matchups in their last three games, facing the likes of Brett Hundley, Deshone Kizer, and Mitchell Trubisky. Naturally, this passing defense has excelled, allowing just three passing touchdowns and an average of 220 passing yards per game. On the season though, the Lions have been just an average pass defense. Darius Slay is certainly one of the best cornerbacks in the league while Glover Quin has been an elite safety, but they have some holes in that secondary and linebacker core outside of those two studs. It will be interesting to see how the Lions use Slay this week, as one would think that opposing defenses will not let Adam Thielen continue to dominate as he has been this season. Slay has played just two percent of his snaps covering slot receivers this season though, and Thielen lines up in the slot for over 50% of his snaps. Look for Slay to cover more of Diggs here, while Thielen should have an average matchup against Quandre Diggs, who has been much improved this season after being one of the worst cornerbacks in the league in 2016.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 7 vs BAL (4 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

The biggest play for Treadwell today were his offside late in the fourth quarter and his twice-tipped pass that ended up being intercepted. The second-year receiver was supposed to have made big strides in the offseason and integrated into the offense more. However, he has been largely ineffective all season and often disappears on the field. Treadwell shows no chemistry with Case Keenum and has to be rooting for his former college quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater to work his way back onto the field.

2017 Week 6 vs GB (3 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)

The biggest contribution in today's game came in his downfield blocking on the Jerick McKinnon touchdown. Treadwell has made huge strides in his route running ability and set a career high in yards today. Treadwell benefitted from Stefon Diggs being ruled out and was utilized as the second receiver, ahead of Michael Floyd. Case Keenum still seems to favor his running backs and tight ends but Treadwell was able to make his impact today. His biggest reception came on a 25-yard reception down the sideline where he had to make an amazing one-handed catch in front of Ha-Ha Clinton Dix. This is a play you will most likely see on the Top 10 circuit on Sportscenter this week. Treadwell still has a high ceiling but is developing much slower than people expected.
