Vikings | Adam Thielen continues strong play

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:51:23 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught eight passes for 89 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen is the first Vikings receiver since 2009 to record at least 1,000 yards and will continue to be one of the top targets for the team moving forward. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

Vikings | Another big game for Adam Thielen

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:42:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted six receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has totaled 14 receptions for 289 yards and two scores over the past two weekends, and he has scored in three consecutive outings. He'll look to keep it going in Week 12 against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Vikings | Adam Thielen has a big afternoon

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:51:49 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted eight receptions for a season-high 166 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Many forget, but Thielen had 202 yards with two touchdowns last Christmas Eve in Green Bay, so he has had plenty of huge stat lines before. His previous best this season was 157 yards in the open against New Orleans. Still, he remains more of a WR2 in PPR leagues, and a borderline WR2/WR3 in standard play.

Vikings | Adam Thielen ranks high in major categories

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 20:03:14 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen is second in the NFL in receiving yards (627) and fourth in targets (75) through the first eight weeks of the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: It sure may not seem like it, as Thielen has just one touchdown on the campaign -- and that only came overseas last week -- which is holding him back below other receivers in terms of fantasy points accumulated. Nonetheless, owners have to be pleased with their pick of Thielen, who has completely exceeded expectations when he was drafted as a WR3. Just keep plugging him in there and hopefully he's able to pad his touchdown total in the second half.

Vikings | Adam Thielen finds end zone

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 10:04:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 98 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen was targeted at least 10 times for the third straight game and posted his first touchdown on the season this week. He has been a solid receiver for the Vikings this season and should be a No. 3 fantasy receiver against most opponents.

Vikings | Adam Thielen delivering big plays

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 20:44:52 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen ranks fourth in the NFL with 529 receiving yards through Week 7, and his nine catches of 20-plus yards rank second in the league.

Fantasy Tip: He has seen 25 targets over the past two weeks, and even if Stefon Diggs returns, Thielen's penchant for big plays and a matchup with the Cleveland Browns make him a borderline WR2 in Week 8.

Vikings | Adam Thielen quiet vs. Baltimore

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:06:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 41 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has been targeted 25 times over the last two weeks and has served as the No. 1 receiver with Stefon Diggs sidelined. He still has not caught a touchdown pass this season but can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all leagues next week.

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.
