Vikings | Adam Thielen continues to impress

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 14:28:07 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught four passes for 61 yards in the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Aug. 18. He has been impressing the coaches throughout training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has been receiving work with the first-team offense during practice and has recorded 81 yards in two preseason games. He may have a chance to earn a bigger role on offense with his preseason performance, so owners should monitor the situation. Thielen probably should not be drafted in most leagues, but he could be a waiver wire option if he plays well early in the season.

Vikings | Adam Thielen working with starters

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 10:28:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen is receiving most of the first-team snaps when the team is lined up in three-receiver sets alongside WRs Charles Johnson and Stefon Diggs.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation during the preseason to see if he will have a role in the passing game. It appears Thielen will have a decent chance to make the 53-man roster, but he probably can be avoided in most drafts at this point.

Vikings | Minnesota WRs struggle in victory

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:57:56 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WRs Mike Wallace, Jarius Wright, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs each struggled in the Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers. Wallace had one grab for 22 yards, while Wright had 21 yards on two receptions. Thielen posted 16 yards on his only target, and Diggs had an eight-yard grab on two receptions.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings receivers each did very little in a victory. The best bet for FantasyScore players is Diggs heading into next Sunday's playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, but none of the receivers have done very much lately and Seattle's defense is stout. It might be best to target receivers in the other playoff games.

Vikings | Adam Thielen makes most of chance

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 19:42:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted six receptions for 70 yards in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was seeing extensive action with Charles Johnson (ribs) inactive and Jarius Wright (hand) nicked up. If those two continue to sit, Thielen isn't a terrible FantasyScore option on the cheap.
