Vikings WR Adam Thielen 'good' after leg injury

Tuesday, August 28, 2018, 7:46pm

Andrew Krammer - [Full Article]

Vikings WR Adam Thielen is "good" after leaving practice today. No cause for long-term concern with his left leg, according to a league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Krammer had tweeted that Thielen hobbled off the field after apparently hurting his leg in practice. He did walk off under his own power. Fortunately with Krammer's updated tweet, Thielen appears to be OK.

Scouting Report

Week 2 at Green Bay Packers

Adam Thielen was Kirk Cousins' go-to man in Week 1, receiving a team-high 12 targets. He turned those targets into six receptions for 102 yards. If Thielen continues to get this many looks from Cousins, then he may end up being the better choice between the two star Vikings wideouts.

This week Thielen travels to Green Bay to face a somewhat favorable Packers defense. He had one good game and one bad game a season ago against them, which is the sort of balance Thanos likes to see, but not necessarily fantasy owners. Nevertheless, we like Thielen as a strong WR2 option.
