Vikings | Adam Thielen emerges as deep threat

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 20:49:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen led all receivers by catching 70.4 percent of his targets that traveled 15 yards or more down the field this season.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen developed great chemistry with Sam Bradford, just missing out on a 1,000-yard season. He enters 2017 as a viable WR3 option.

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.

Vikings | Adam Thielen disappears in loss

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 18:23:03 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen did not have any receptions and he was targeted just once in the Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen had a 100-yard game last week, and 187 receiving yards over the past two outings, so this was a giant disappointment for anyone using him as a WR3 or WR4, especially in the fantasy playoffs.

Vikings | Adam Thielen leaves game

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 12:19:51 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (neck) suffered a neck injury in Week 15 and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update in Thielen's status after the game to see if he will miss more time. Thielen has been a solid member of the passing game over the last few weeks and would be at least a flex option if he plays in Week 16.

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.
