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.
Thielen nabbed eight of 12 targets for 166 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-30 win over Washington.
Quarterback Case Keenum was scrambling in the red zone in search of a target late in the first half when Thielen found a hole in the coverage and hauled in a seven-yard dart just before the defender could close. It was Thielen's second score in as many weeks after opening the season without a touchdown in his first seven games. The touchdowns are just the icing on the cake, as Thielen had already seemed to develop a strong rapport with Keenum. He's topped 90 yards receiving in three of his past four games and has caught at least five passes in each contest this season.
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 half-way mark of the campaign, the 27-year-old will look to continue his productive campaign in Week 10 against the Redskins, after the upcoming bye.
Thielen nabbed five of 12 targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 24-16 win over Baltimore.
Thielen led the Vikings with 12 targets on Sunday, bringing his two-week total to 25 with fellow starter Stefon Diggs (groin) hobbled. Thielen has been successful even when Diggs has been at full strength thus far this season, with at least eight targets in six of seven games. He has yet to find the end zone, but he has topped 90 yards thrice despite the Vikings' shoddy quarterbacking. Those targets might lead to even better production as soon as Week 10 if Teddy Bridgewater makes his return.
Thielen brought in nine of 13 targets for 97 yards in Sunday's 23-10 win over the Packers and fumbled once.
As expected, Thielen was a focal point of the air attack with Stefon Diggs (groin) sidelined for the contest, and his workload saw another bump once the latter's replacement, Michael Floyd, exited with a calf injury. The circumstances helped lead to Thielen's first game with double-digit targets in 2017, which allowed him to match his single-game season high in catches. The 27-year-old already has 38 receptions for 489 yards through six contests, with his zero touchdowns serving as the only blemish on his solid season thus far. He'll look to accomplish that feat when the Vikings tangle with the Ravens at home in Week 7.
