  • Thielen caught 11 of 15 targets for 123 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-17 win over Arizona. Thielen extending Minnesota's lead early in the second half, splitting the middle of the field for a 13-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone. Thielen has now scored in four of six games and has at least six catches and 100 yards in every game this season. He is as reliable an option as you can find this point, particularly on Sunday against a Jets defense surrendering 292 receiving yards per game.

  • Thielen caught seven of 10 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Eagles. Thielen drew double-digit targets yet again and averaged a healthy 16.6 yards per reception as he became the first player in NFL history to go over 100 receiving yards in five straight games to start a season. He punctuated his day with a three-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, giving him three trips to the end zone in the last four games. Thielen is simply a top-flight fantasy producer given the amount of attention he receives from quarterback Kirk Cousins, and though he could draw a matchup with Patrick Peterson in next week's game against the Cardinals, he should be expected to come through with another useful performance.

  • Thielen brought in eight of 12 targets for 135 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' 38-31 loss to the Rams on Thursday night. Thielen checked in second on the team in targets to Stefon Diggs, but he paced the Vikings in receiving yardage. Thielen brought in a perfect 45-yard scoring strike from Kirk Cousins late in the third quarter for his second touchdown over the last three games. The 28-year-old has eclipsed the century mark in yardage in each game thus far this season, thrilling fantasy owners in all formats. He'll look to continue the excellent start to his season against the Eagles in Week 5.

  • Vikings' Adam Thielen: Good to go for Week 1
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thielen (leg) wasn't listed on the Vikings' Week 1 injury report Wednesday. Thielen appeared to turn his ankle at practice last Tuesday, but a source quickly downplayed its severity, telling Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune that it wasn't a "long-term concern." In the meantime, the Vikings released Kendall Wright, which has opened the door for Thielen to work in the slot in three-wideout formations while operating on the outside when just he and Stefon Diggs are on the field. With his health not in question, Thielen is ready for a generous dose of snaps Sunday against the 49ers.

  • Thielen (leg) likely will spend a lot of time in the slot this season, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. There was reason to believe Thielen would spend more time working outside in three-wide formations after the Vikings signed slot specialist Kendall Wright, who ultimately was released Saturday after losing out to Laquon Treadwell in a battle for the No. 3 receiver job. Thielen thus figures to reprise his role from last season, taking outside snaps in two-WR formations and frequently shifting to the slot when the Vikings go three-wide. The 28-year-old wide receiver suffered a minor leg injury at Tuesday's practice, but it isn't expected to threaten his availability for Week 1 against the 49ers.
