Thielen corralled seven of nine targets for 86 yards in Thursday's 17-15 loss to the Cowboys. He also lost a key fumble in the fourth quarter that led to a Dallas touchdown.

Thielen continued his ascent fantasy-wise Thursday, but his early fourth-quarter fumble deep in Vikings territory directly led to a go-ahead eight-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to Dez Bryant on the very next play following the miscue. On the bright side, Thielen now has 15 receptions on 20 targets for 139 yards over the last two weeks, and Thursday's solid numbers encouragingly came with Stefon Diggs on the field. He'll look to continue his emergence against the Jaguars in Week 14.
