This week there are many quality options in Eliminator Challenge. Eight teams have have at least a 75% chance to win this week according to FPI, by far the most of any week this season. The Steelers (90% vs the MIA) and Vikings (92% vs WAS) are by far the two best options. The Steelers don't have another week where FPI rates them as a top-7 pick, so this is the best week to use them. The Vikings are also a great option, but they could also make sense in week 11 (vs DEN). - Mackenzie Kraemer

They had 9 TOTAL last season.

Adam Thielen is questionable to return with a hamstring injury sustained on the 25-yard TD catch he made in the back of the endzone with 5:23 to play in the first quarter. Thielen appeared to injure his right hamstring upon making contact with the turf after dragging his second foot along the back of the endzone boundary. He spent several minutes in the medical tent before returning to the sideline. He has not put his helmet back on since.

The Vikings announced Friday that tight end David Morgan will undergo season-ending surgery. Morgan started the 2019 season on the PUP list after injuring his knee last season and dealt with subsequent issues throughout the offseason, causing him to miss OTAs, minicamp and training camp. Morgan is one of the NFL's better run-blocking tight ends, so the loss certainly stings, but the silver lining for Minnesota is the production its getting in this area from others like Kyle Rudolph.
