Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) has 'a chance' to play in Week 11 versus the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.
Huddle Up: Owners should consider it a five-percent chance. Thielen has already aggravated his hamstring once and Minnesota will be heading into its bye week in Week 12. Expect Thielen to return to action in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) remained out of practice Thursday, Nov. 14, and it appears unlikely he will play Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Thielen's chances of returning before the Vikings' Week 12 bye were essentially nixed when he tried to play but quickly re-aggravated things in Week 9, so don't expect to see Thielen until Week 13 at the earliest.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Thielen did not play in the last game and probably will miss another game if he does not practice this week. Fantasy players should check on his status later in the week because he would be a risky option if he plays.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) on Friday, Nov. 8, was ruled out of the team's Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: As expected and at least Thielen owners know ahead of time instead of starting him last week only to see the wideout depart after a few plays. Overall, it will go down as essentially the third straight absence for Thielen, meaning more looks for WRs Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell and likely even TEs Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) did not participate in the team's practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: Thielen left the Vikings' Week 9 game early without a catch after re-aggravating his hammy and has missed both of the team's practices this week. If he can't show any progress Friday, it'll be time to move him to the bench and lock another wide receiver into your Week 10 lineup.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: The Vikings said they will not rush Thielen back from the injury, so there is a decent chance that he will miss the Week 10 game. Fantasy players can monitor the situation over the next few days but should have other options available in case he is ruled out.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) isn't believed to have a long-term injury, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer also said Thielen wasn't brought back too soon, and the hamstring just grabbed on him in the game.
Huddle Up: Thielen has a rough matchup against the Dallas Cowboys this week. If he's fit to play, he'll be a WR2 in fantasy.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is unlikely to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Vikings were expected to take a conservative approach with Thielen, so the news isn't surprising. Although he's coming off a one-catch dud against the Chiefs in Week 9, Stefon Diggs should offer WR1 upside with Thielen sidelined.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) doesn't have a set return date, according to head coach Mike Zimmer Monday, Nov. 4. 'Whenever the doctor says he's ready to play, he's ready,' Zimmer said.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers may need to prepare for Thielen to miss a minimum of one game. The Week 11 Sunday Night Football spot against the Dallas Cowboys provides a little extra time for his recovery, but he played just seven snaps and saw one target last week. WRs Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell could be in line for larger roles opposite Stefon Diggs.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) left the Week 9 game early because of a hamstring injury and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Thielen was questionable for the game because of a hamstring injury, so he may have aggravated the injury. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation to see if he will be able to return. He is a must-start option when he is healthy.
