Vikings | Adam Thielen nearly reaches 100 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:04:14 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 98 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has caught at least five passes in each of the first three games and is averaging almost 100 yards per game. He will continue to be a big factor in the team's passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

Vikings | Adam Thielen catches five passes

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:48:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 44 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen's value took a hit with Case Keenum starting this week but still had a decent outing for owners in point-per-reception leagues. Thielen can be considered at least a flex option for owners next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Vikings | Adam Thielen blows up for 157 yards on MNF

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 21:34:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen was very productive in the team's season opener Monday, Sept. 11, opposite the New Orleans Saints, as he recorded nine catches on a team-high 10 targets for 157 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was the fourth-career 100-plus-yard effort for Thielen, who figures to notch more such efforts in the weeks and months ahead. Along with Stefon Diggs, the fourth-year wideout basically did as he pleased against a porous Saints defense. Bradford heavily relied on both men last year and it looks like that won't change at all in 2017. As a result, Thielen just may develop into a legitimate WR2 by year's end.

Vikings | Five catches for Adam Thielen

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 20:07:15 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished with five catches for 50 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen developed a nice chemistry with Sam Bradford last year, so it's no surprise that he was a popular target. He is a high-end WR4 with WR3 potential against the right matchups.

Vikings | Adam Thielen being used in slot

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 12:21:37 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen has been playing in the slot in three-receiver formations in an effort to further utilize his versatility. QB Sam Bradford said it has also helped develop better chemistry with different defensive looks.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen enters the 2017 season as somewhat of an unsung hero after breaking out for 69 catches, 967 yards and five touchdowns last year. Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph take a lot of that attention away from Thielen, but Thielen deserves WR3 merit nonetheless.

Vikings | Adam Thielen not content with breakout year

Mon, 29 May 2017 20:40:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen said he is dedicated in proving his breakout performance this past season wasn't a fluke. "I'm waiting until I'm done playing to reflect," Thielen said at the club's organized team activities last week. "I've got too much to work on, too many big goals, to reflect on anything. I'm just going to come out here every day and try to get better and bring the same mindset I've brought since I got to the league."

Fantasy Tip: Thielen had only 20 catches combined in his first two seasons prior to recording 69 receptions for 967 yards and five touchdowns during the 2016 campaign, so this is certainly encouraging to hear that he won't be content with that. He's a fine bet to keep it going through next year as one of Sam Bradford's most trusted targets, especially if Stefon Diggs is hampered by injury issues again.
