Starting Thielen if active?

The track record of the 1st game in which players are coming back after injury this year has been abysmal. See:

  • Thielen
  • Lockett
  • Connor
  • David Johnson

Are you starting Thielen over options like Parker, Crowder, Fuller?

I am because it seems like they were especially cautious in bringing him back. I’m playing him over McLauren, but I am nervous about it. Hopefully I’m not just trying to wish-cast it into existence and he turns out to be a good play. Good luck whichever way you go.
