Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen led the league with 68 receptions out of the slot last season, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Signed to a four-year, $64 million extension last month, Thielen ranks fourth in the league with 204 receptions over the last two seasons combined. While it is fair to wonder if the Vikings desire to run the ball more often will cut down on his opportunities a bit, Thielen has established himself as a supreme route-runner capable of getting open against almost any cornerback. Owners should feel confident in him as a low-end fantasy WR1 in 2019.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with the Vikings Friday, April 12, worth $64 million. The deal includes $35 million in guaranteed money and could be worth as much as $73 million.
Huddle Up: Thielen was one of the top receivers in the NFL this past season and finished with 113 receptions, 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns. He will continue to be a main part of the passing game for the Vikings and can be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Although Thielen cooled after an incredible start to the year, he was still able to deliver a career year and establish himself as a WR1.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen managed five receptions for 80 yards on six targets in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Thielen posted eight 100-yard games over the first eight outings, but he has just one triple-digit yardage game over the past seven contests and he has a season-high three straight without a score. He picked a tough time for his worst stretch of the season for fantasy owners.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted two grabs for a season-low 19 yards in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Thielen opened the season with eight straight 100-yard games, but he has just one over the past six outings. He has also been held out of the end zone in back-to-back outings for the first time this season. Marginal performances are coming at an inopportune time for Thielen's fantasy owners. He'll look to rebound in Week 16 in Detroit.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: Thielen will be good to go in his quest to rebound from last week's poor outing. He's an automatic start anyway, but he'll have higher upside if Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard is ruled out.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) returned to the Week 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks and he finished with five grabs for 70 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Most of his production came in garbage time late in the game, but fantasy owners don't care where it comes from. A near disastrous night ended up not being as bad with his late stats and the fact he returned from injury. He'll look to keep up the good work against the Miami Dolphins in Week 15.
