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.
