Vikings | Adam Thielen could reach milestone

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 17:14:25 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen only needs 40 yards in Week 17 to reach the 1,000-yard milestone on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen's previous career high in yards was 144 last year. He has turned into a solid weapon for the Vikings, especially with Adrian Peterson sitting most of the year. He's in the running for Minnesota's No. 2 wide receiver position next season behind Stefon Diggs.

Vikings | Adam Thielen has 200-yard game

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 15:18:43 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen set career highs with 12 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 16 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Although Thielen has been an important part of the offense since early October, this is a stunning performance from a player who was shut out last week after taking a brutal hit early in the second half. The former undrafted free agent was getting open at will in this contest and he needs only 40 yards at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 17 to go over 1,000. He's obviously a must-start.

Vikings | Adam Thielen expects to play Week 16

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 10:46:20 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (neck) told reporters he feels "fine" and anticipates playing on Christmas Eve in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen had been on quite a roll in terms of churning out solid PPR performances before getting blanked in Week 15 after leaving early in the third quarter after getting drilled by Indianapolis Colts cornerback Darius Butler. Assuming no setbacks between now and Saturday, Thielen makes for a reasonable low-end WR3/flex play against the Packers' vulnerable secondary.
