Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught eight passes for 97 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 16. He was targeted nine times during the game.
Huddle Up: Thielen has caught at least one touchdown in 10 of his 14 games this season and has recorded eight receptions in three of his last five games. He will continue to be a focal point in the passing game for the Vikings and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught two of his three targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in a 33-27 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Thielen's reception and yardage totals have fluctuated more than usual this season, but he has shown a nose for the end zone. He has scored 13 touchdowns in 13 games, scoring at least once in nine separate contests. Thielen's touchdown potential should keep him in starting lineups in all formats.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen had just three grabs for 39 yards on four targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Thielen's performance was a major bummer for fantasy owners who have ridden him to three straight outstanding showings. He remains a must-start heading into Week 15 against the Chicago Bears, especially for PPR owners. He had four grabs for 43 yards and two scores in the first meeting in Chicago back in Week 10.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen ended up with eight catches, 75 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Thielen was back from a one-game absence, and he was the same as he ever was. That's three straight games with at least one touchdown grab, posting five total during the span, and he has eight grabs and 11 targets in each of his past two. The fantasy stud will look to stay hot in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Dec. 2, and he'll practice.
Huddle Up: It looks like he'll be good to go as a great WR2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen hopefully will be cleared to play in the Week 13 game, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Thielen is currently on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation during the week to see if Thielen will be able to play. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when healthy and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues if available.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen has been ruled out for Week 12's game versus the Carolina Panthers. He is still on the Reserve/COVID-19 list but it remains uncertain whether he actually had the virus. Thielen initially received a positive test, followed by a negative test, a second positive test and a second negative test.
Huddle Up: Justin Jefferson will serve as Minnesota's top receiver this afternoon, with Olabisi Johnson expected to start across from him. Jefferson can be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 option in fantasy leagues, while Johnson is a desperation play at best.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (illness) remains on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, and head coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday, Nov. 25, that the team will 'wait and see' if Thielen is available for the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners are hopeful Thielen will be available, but obviously should be moving to have alternate plans in place. He has 12 grabs for 156 yards and four touchdowns over the past two games on 18 targets, so he is an obvious must-start fantasy option when he is well.

Updating a previous story, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen tested negative for COVID-19 following a positive test. His status is undetermined.
