Adam Thielen (ankle) out for Vikings on Thursday

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) is out for Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.

What It Means:

Thielen injured his ankle on Sunday and he wasn't able to recover in time on the short week. K.J. Osborn is expected to take on the majority of Thielen's snaps. He saw 17.1% of the Vikings' targets and played 93.0% of the offensive snaps in Week 13 with Thielen out for most of the game.

numberFire's models project Osborn for 5.1 targets on Thursday and he has an $8,000 salary on FanDuel's one-game slate. Per Pro Football Focus, Osborn ran just one fewer route than Justin Jefferson in Week 13.
