WR MIN (7)
Sun 12/5/21 5:54 PM

Osborn had four receptions (seven targets) for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.
EDGE Analysis
Starter Adam Thielen (ankle) was forced out of the contest early in the first quarter, opening the door for Osborn to get more involved in the offense. The 24-year-old produced a solid fantasy line, but it wasn't even his best performance this season despite getting extra run. Osborn could continue to see increased usage if Thielen is forced to miss any time with his sprained ankle. The veteran wideout is currently listed as questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Steelers, but the short week of rest could result in Osborn's first start of the year. He would carry deep-league appeal in the event Thielen is unable to suit up.
