Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for the Divisional Round game Saturday, Jan. 11, against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Thielen caught seven of nine targets for 129 yards in the Wild Card Round against the New Orleans Saints and will be counted on for a big role once again against the Niners. He should be started in all formats.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) tested his lacerated ankle Saturday, Jan. 11, in a pre-game workout. It's the first time Thielen has run since his ankle was gashed Wednesday in practice and required stitches.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is expected to wear protective padding over his injured ankle during the Divisional Round playoff game, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Thielen likely will be able to play in the game, but fantasy players can check the inactive list to make sure. He is one of the main targets in the passing game for the Vikings and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is expected to play in the Divisional game Saturday, Jan. 11. He will remain off of his feet until game time.
Huddle Up: He'll draw a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, and he'll probably have to manage irritation or pain with the stitches in his ankle. Thielen is still one of the better options in DFS and playoff pools.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Thielen is officially listed as questionable for the game Saturday, Jan. 11, against the San Francisco 49ers, but he has been adamant he'll play. He caught seven of nine targets for 129 yards in the Wild Card Round against the New Orleans Saints and will remain a top option even in a tougher matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

Minnesota Vikings Adam Thielen is listed as questionable for the team's divisional-round playoff game at San Francisco on Saturday, Jan. 11. 'I just got a little tangled up in practice but I'm going to do whatever it takes -- it's playoffs,' Thielen said on NFL Network Thursday. 'I'll do whatever it takes to be out there on Saturday with my teammates and try to help this team win.'
Huddle Up: We'll need to monitor Thielen's status all the way up through the release of the pre-game inactives list Saturday, but it sounds like Thielen will play as he tries to follow up on his impressive wild-card round showing (7 catches for 129 yards on 9 targets).

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) was present at the start of practice Thursday, Jan. 9, but was not participating.
Huddle Up: Thielen received stitches to close a cut on his ankle suffered in practice Wednesday, and he should be able to play in Saturday's divisional round, even if he misses some practice time. Stay tuned as we'll know more as the week goes on.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) required stitches for a bad cut on his ankle suffered in practice Wednesday, Jan. 8. His initial prognosis was good for playing against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Jan. 11, but the team continues to gather information and proceed with caution.
Huddle Up: While stitches on an ankle isn't a walk in the park for a wide receiver, it is a better outlook than a potential aggravation of his previous ankle sprain. Thielen should suit up, but it might be a pain management situation once the game kicks off. He's a great WR2 in playoff pools and DFS.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Thielen was added to the injury report Wednesday, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation. Thielen should be a starting option in all leagues if he is able to play.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) said Thursday, Dec. 26, his catch-less performance against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Dec. 23, had nothing to do with his prior hamstring injury. 'It had nothing to do with the hamstring injury,'' Thielen said. 'I felt great out there and just had a few opportunities, didn't make the plays, and the rest is out of my control.''
Huddle Up: It's unconfirmed whether Thielen will play a meaningless Week 17 game for the Vikings against the Chicago Bears. He received four targets in Week 16 after catching all three balls sent his way in his Week 15 return from injury. He should be in lineups if on the field.
