Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught two passes for six yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Thielen had been the better of Minnesota's disappointing receiving duo through three games, but the Bears locked Thielen down on Sunday, resulting in his worst showing since the 2016 campaign. It's hard to imagine Thielen going anywhere but up in Week 5 against the Giants, though at this stage it's difficult to advocate playing him as more than a WR2.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted three receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders and he had a one-yard rushing score.
Huddle Up: The Vikings got away from the pass after building a big lead, so that limited Thielen's fantasy effectiveness. Still, he more than made up for it with two total touchdowns. He'll search for his first 100-yard game in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted five catches for 75 yards on eight targets in the Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Thielen managed just three grabs for 43 yards in Week 1, but he had a touchdown. The score was what was missing from this fair line today. Perhaps he can get both decent yardage and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the visiting Oakland Raiders, who had their pass defense carved up in Week 2.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen registered three receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: The Vikings throttled down the pass offense after building a big lead early in the game, turning to a mostly ground-based attack. That was bad news for the fantasy prospects of Thielen and the entire passing game. Luckily for his fantasy owners, Thielen found the end zone. He'll look for more production in Week 2 at Green Bay.
