Vikings' Adam Thielen: Three receptions in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thielen had three receptions for 29 yards on four targets in Sunday's win at Carolina.

Thielen's day included a nice one-handed grab to set up a score. He was third in targets, as he's getting more balls thrown his way than No. 2 receiver Charles Johnson. However, the conservative offense in Minnesota will limit his upside.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Role continues to grow
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thielen had four receptions on five targets for 41 yards in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

Thielen's stock continues to rise as he had the second most targets among wide receivers (Charles Johnson had just two targets). It's notable that Thielen continues to have a large role even with new starting quarterback Sam Bradford playing his first game with the Vikings. With Charles Johnson not showing much in the first two games, Thielen could be an option for deeper fantasy leagues.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Five receptions as third receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen had four receptions for 54 yards on five targets in Sunday's win at Tennessee. Thielen was a clear third on the team in snaps with 35 as Cordarrelle Patterson had five and both Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright did not play, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Thielen had a strong preseason and is the clear third receiver to begin the season. He could continue to surprise this season as he's excelled in every role the Vikings have placed him in.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Coontinues to get first-team reps
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thielen did not have a reception or a target in Sunday's preseason win over the Chargers. However, he played 17 snaps in the first half and was third in playing time among receivers with the first-team offense, according to Pro Football Focus.

It's possible Thielen will begin the season as the No. 3 receiver ahead of Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright as he's had a strong preseason and training camp. Still, it's hard to see Thielen having a prominent role in the offense, and he may return to his utility role. However, he's a player to watch early in the season in case the Vikings are serious about giving him snaps with the first-team offense.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Another strong preseason showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen was targeted a team-high six times and had four receptions for 61 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle.

Thielen has been practicing with the first-team offense and has had two strong performances in the preseason while getting time with the starting offense. However, it's still hard to envision he'll have a significant role once the regular season begins. He thrives on special teams and as a utility player who can play any wide receiver role in a pinch.
