Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught 11 passes for 126 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted 13 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Thielen was off to a slow start of the season but was able to post his first 100-yard game of the season this week. He has been targeted at least seven times in five of the six games this season and should receive a similar workload against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver most weeks.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Thielen posted four touchdowns in the first three games of the season but has been held out off the end zone in the last two games and has only 86 yards in those two games. He will continue to see a solid amount of targets in the passing game and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Thielen has missed the first two practices of this week, so his status for the Week 6 game is uncertain. He has not posted great numbers this season but should still be a starting option if he is cleared to play.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will know more about Thielen's status in the next few days. He has been held under 50 yards in three of the last four games but does have four touchdowns on the season. He can still be a least a No. 3 receiver in leagues if active.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught two passes for 40 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 5. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Thielen has been heled to under 50 yards in three of the last four games and has not caught a touchdown in either of the last two games. He should be more involved in the passing game next week and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted three catches for 46 yards on a game-high eight targets in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Thielen had managed at least one touchdown and six receptions or more in each of his first three games, so this was a big disappointment for fantasy managers. He'll look to bounce back in Week 5 against the Detroit Lions.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen faces the Cleveland Browns Sunday, October 3, and he has caught a touchdown in 11 straight October games.
Huddle Up: Thielen caught 14 touchdowns in 15 games last year, and he has four scores in three games this season. He might not pile up a ton of yards, but Thielen is a weekly WR2 as long as Kirk Cousins continues to look his way in the red zone.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Thielen should return to practice later in the week and will receive his normal workload against the Cleveland Browns. He has posted 50 yards or less in two of the three games this season but has four touchdowns during that span. He should be a starting option in all leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen registered six receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Thielen has at least six receptions and at least one touchdown in each of his first three games, totaling 21 grabs for 181 yards and four scores. He remains a must-start in all PPR fantasy leagues, and he is a solid low-end WR2 or flex option in standard play, too. The Vikings host the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught six of his seven targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Thielen has clearly established that he is Kirk Cousins' favorite target in the red zone again this year. He is already up to three touchdowns on the season, two of which have come from 7 yards or closer. Fantasy managers run the risk of a down week from Thielen any time he doesn't find the end zone, but it is also hard to bet against that happening when he has scored 32 times in his last 43 games spanning the last three-plus seasons. He should remain firmly in the WR2 discussion again next week against the Seattle Seahawks.
