Vikings | Adam Thielen goes over century mark

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:19:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted six receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted a game-high 13 times.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen and Case Keenum have jelled nicely and the wideout has emerged as a legitimate must-start fantasy option on a weekly basis. In fact, he is a solid WR2 in all PPR formats and a nice WR3 or flex play in most standard leagues. The Vikings host the Bengals in Week 15.

Vikings | Adam Thielen finishes with 51 yards

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 13:24:07 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught four passes for 51 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen had a bit of a disappointing performance since he had at least 89 yards in each of the previous four games, but he did catch four of his five targets. He will continue to be a focal point in the passing game and should be a starting option against most opponents.

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.
