2019 Outlook: Adam Thielen

Adam Thielen is well worth a top-40 pick after back-to-back seasons with over 140 targets, 90 catches and 1,200 yards. Locked into a strong role in the Vikings offense is a plus, but a correlation we've noticed over the past two seasons gives some pause. Only seven times in Thielen's past 32 games has he and a Vikings running back posted good Fantasy totals. If Dalvin Cook were to explode this season, it could hurt Thielen's production. We already know the opposite is true -- Cook's missed 17 games the past two seasons and Thielen thrived in nine of them. Like all high-volume receivers, he's much more appealing in PPR.
