Fantasy managers need to keep an eye on a few top wide receivers ahead of Week 14. Adam Thielen isn't practicing this week, and the Vikings are playing on Thursday night. Thielen was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, which usually is a multi-week injury. Justin Jefferson is a top-five option for Week 14 and K.J. Osborn is a WR4.
Another wide receiver to keep an eye on is Keenan Allen. He tested positive for COVID-19 and needs to test negative twice before he can play. Reportedly he is vaccinated, which should make it easier for him to return to the field. However, fantasy managers that have seen players return from COVID may have noticed they often need a game to get back to their pre-illness self. Allen is currently ranked as a WR2, but keep an eye on his status as the week goes on.
