Vikings | Adam Thielen leads way in Week 6

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:20:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen racked up nine receptions for 97 yards on 13 targets in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen had an impressive game all around with Stefon Diggs inactive and Michael Floyd checking out early due to injury. He is more attractive in PPR leagues, but if Diggs remains sidelined Thielen isn't a bad start across the board heading into Week 7 against the Ravens.

Vikings | Adam Thielen held in check Monday

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 23:06:37 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished with five catches on eight targets for 34 yards Monday, Oct. 9, versus the Chicago Bears. He also had one rush for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: In terms of receptions, Thielen has been as steady as they get, having registered five catches in his last four games since his monster Week 1 effort. Unfortunately, though, he hasn't found the end zone yet, which has to be frustrating for his owners given that he's sixth in the NFL in receiving yards. Thielen should find pay dirt sooner than later, though, as he continues to be a focal point in the passing game based on targets. He's been targeted eight or more times in four of five games.

Vikings | Adam Thielen hauls in five balls

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 15:09:50 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen racked up five receptions for 59 yards on a game-high eight targets in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has posted at least five receptions in each of his four games, which is the good news for PPR fantasy owners. The bad news, he is still looking for his first touchdown of the 2017 season. The Vikings travel to meet the Bears on Monday Night Football in Week 5.

Vikings | Adam Thielen second in yards

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 07:52:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen is second in the league with 299 receiving yards through three games.

Fantasy Tip: He has done this with Case Keenum under center for two of those games with Sam Bradford (knee) on the mend. Thielen had a 69-967-5 breakout last season, and he's poised to surpass it. He faces the Detroit Lions in Week 4, and they're a midrange defense against the position. Thielen is a low-end WR2 for now.

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 back at practice

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 19:21:50 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (undisclosed) practiced Friday, July 28, after leaving Thursday's practice with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen emerged as one of Sam Braford's favorite targets last year and nearly reached 1,000 yards. Consider him a WR4 candidate with flex potential in PPR leagues.
