Vikings | Adam Thielen happy to be overlooked

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 19:41:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen said he feels he has shown he is not a joke and can make plays in the NFL, and WR Cordarrelle Patterson said Thielen likes when defenses overlook him.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has shown solid chemistry with Sam Bradford this season, and he has 20 catches over his last three games. Don't hesitate to use him as a WR3 in PPR formats against Jacksonville in Week 14.

Vikings | Adam Thielen not on injury report

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:36:48 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has posted at least 50 yards in five of his last seven games and as two touchdowns in his last three games. He should see a decent amount of targets against the Dallas Cowboys and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Vikings | Adam Thielen fully practices

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:05:11 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (shoulder) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen's fantasy value decreases this week with the likely return of Stefon Diggs. That doesn't necessarily mean he should be benched, though. He has found the endzone twice in his last three games and at least deserves consideration as a flex start.

Vikings | Full practice for Adam Thielen

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 16:13:26 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (shoulder) participated fully in practice Monday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen's opportunities will likely decrease this week with Stefon Diggs returning to action. That doesn't mean he should be overlooked, though. Thielen could be worth a flex start for those who are desperate after scoring two times in his last three games.

Vikings | Adam Thielen quiet in start

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 13:45:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught eight passes for 53 yards with WR Stefon Diggs sidelined Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The eight catches were nice, but no one on the Vikings did much in the receiving game because Sam Bradford's average depth of target was extremely limited. Expect Thielen's catches to decrease when Diggs returns.

Vikings | Adam Thielen leads receivers

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 14:27:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught all five of his targeted passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 30-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: With Stefon Diggs targeted heavily by Arizona (seven targets, six catches for 37 yards), Minnesota had to have someone else carry the load, and Thielen fit the bill. Thielen is not a regular receiver in your lineups, but he is someone who can carry a game if someone is out of your lineup via injury or bye.

Vikings | Adam Thielen fills in admirably

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 16:01:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted seven receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen was a tremendous fill-in for the injured Stefon Diggs, who is nursing a groin injury. While Diggs is expected to return after the team's bye, Thielen could have earned himself a bigger role in the offense even when Diggs can return in Week 7.

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.
