Just place the frozen turkey, in the packaging, on a shelf in your fridge. You may want to place a couple if paper towels under it to catch any moisture that may leak.

Also it is going to drip, I would use a tray with a lip or a big oval platter.  If it not defrosted enough for you before you cook it take off the wrappers and soak it in cold water and clean out the insides. It will quickly defrost.........and today is Sunday................wait to do the water as you can store it only up  to 2 days totally defrosted.

Refrigerator Thawing Times
Whole turkey:

 

  • 4 to 12 pounds …… 1 to 3 days
  • 12 to 16 pounds …… 3 to 4 days
  • 16 to 20 pounds …… 4 to 5 days
  • 20 to 24 pounds …… 5 to 6 days


A thawed turkey can remain in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 days before cooking. Foods thawed in the refrigerator can be refrozen without cooking but there may be some loss of quality.

Cold Water Thawing
Allow about 30 minutes per pound.

First be sure the turkey is in a leak-proof plastic bag to prevent cross-contamination and to prevent the turkey from absorbing water, resulting in a watery product.

Submerge the wrapped turkey in cold tap water. Change the water every 30 minutes until the turkey is thawed. Cook the turkey immediately after it is thawed.

Cold Water Thawing Times

 

  • 4 to 12 pounds …… 2 to 6 hours
  • 12 to 16 pounds …… 6 to 8 hours
  • 16 to 20 pounds …… 8 to 10 hours
  • 20 to 24 pounds …… 10 to 12 hours


A turkey thawed by the cold water method should be cooked immediately. After cooking, meat from the turkey can be refrozen.
