  • Thielen caught six of 13 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Carolina. Thielen was the intended target on an opening-drive Case Keenum interception and dropped a would-be four-yard touchdown in the front corner of the end zone just before halftime. He seemed to make amends two plays later, but further review revealed that he failed to possess the ball to the ground, resulting in his second dropped touchdown of the drive. Thielen's 52-yard score in the fourth quarter erased any ill will Vikings fans or fantasy owners had after his poor performance in the first half, however. The breakout star has 632 yards and four touchdowns over the past six weeks.

  • Thielen caught four of five targets for 51 yards during Sunday's 14-9 win over the Falcons. Thielen hauled in all but one of the passes thrown his way, but limited targets and a few short gains limited him to his fourth-lowest yardage output of the season. Still, he tied for the team lead in targets as Case Keenum spread the ball around to nine different pass catchers. Thielen had averaged an impressive 119 yards per game over the previous four and will look to get back on track next week against the Panthers.

  • Vikings' Adam Thielen: Busy in win over Lions
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thielen caught eight of 11 targets for 89 yards during Thursday's 30-23 win over Detroit. While it's a little disappointing that Thielen's touchdown streak ended at three games, this checks out as another solid showing from the go-to receiver. He's up to 27 receptions, 476 yards and three scores through the past four weeks, and he's also paced the Vikings in targets during that stretch. With reliable receivers in decline across the league, Thielen checks out as a rare option who can be started confidently week in, week out.

  • Thielen brought in six of nine targets for 123 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Rams. Thielen provided the highlight of the day when he took a short Case Keenum pass 65 yards to paydirt in the fourth quarter, giving the Vikings a commanding 20-7 lead. The fourth-year wideout continues to serve as Minnesota's most consistent big-play threat, and he's now posted back-to-back 100-yard receiving efforts while also logging a touchdown in three straight contests. Thielen has seen fewer than eight targets only once all season as well, rendering him one of the most dependable fantasy assets at the receiver position in any format. He'll look to play a key role once again versus the Lions in a Thanksgiving Day divisional showdown.

  • Vikings' Adam Thielen: Finds end zone versus Browns
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thielen caught five of 10 targets for 98 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 33-16 win over the Browns. Thielen led the team in receiving yardage and tied for the lead in targets, finding the end zone from 18 yards out in the second quarter. The touchdown was Thielen's first of the season, but it was the fourth time he recorded at least 96 receiving yards in a game. On pace for over 1,200 yards at the halfway mark of the campaign, the 27-year-old will look to continue his productive season in Week 10 against the Redskins following an upcoming bye.
