Vikings | Adam Thielen lines up with starters

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 20:24:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen worked with the first-team offense opposite WR Stefon Diggs Monday, Sept. 5, although head coach Mike Zimmer said not to look too much into it. WR Charles Johnson was resting with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen is a special teams contributor and that's where a majority of his production will be. As a receiver he isn't a great option and his touches will be limited unless injuries decimate the receivers corps in Minny.

Vikings | Role for Jarius Wright unclear

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 20:20:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright is the most experienced receiver in just about every category, but questions remain about his role after the preseason. With WRs Adam Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson useful on special teams, and WRs Stefon Diggs, Charles Johnson and Laquon Treadwell expected to contribute on offense, Wright's place is uncertain although he did make the 53-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: Wright likely needs a long-term injury to one of the top offensive weapons, or a possible trade, before he re-emerges as a fantasy option. Right now it appears he is the No. 6 receiver in Minnesota and likely to be a healthy inactive most weeks.

Vikings | Adam Thielen continues to impress

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 14:28:07 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught four passes for 61 yards in the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 18. He has been impressing the coaches throughout training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has been receiving work with the first-team offense during practice and has recorded 81 yards in two preseason games. He may have a chance to earn a bigger role on offense with his preseason performance, so owners should monitor the situation. Thielen probably should not be drafted in most leagues, but he could be a waiver wire option if he plays well early in the season.

Vikings | Adam Thielen working with starters

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 10:28:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen is receiving most of the first-team snaps when the team is lined up in three-receiver sets alongside WRs Charles Johnson and Stefon Diggs.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation during the preseason to see if he will have a role in the passing game. It appears Thielen will have a decent chance to make the 53-man roster, but he probably can be avoided in most drafts at this point.

Vikings | Minnesota WRs struggle in victory

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:57:56 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WRs Mike Wallace, Jarius Wright, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs each struggled in the Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers. Wallace had one grab for 22 yards, while Wright had 21 yards on two receptions. Thielen posted 16 yards on his only target, and Diggs had an eight-yard grab on two receptions.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings receivers each did very little in a victory. The best bet for FantasyScore players is Diggs heading into next Sunday's playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, but none of the receivers have done very much lately and Seattle's defense is stout. It might be best to target receivers in the other playoff games.
