Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back, calf) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Thielen will likely play through his injuries but he’ll also have to contend with Bryce Callahan in the slot.

Scouting Report

Week 11 at Chicago Bears

Adam Thielen's 100-yard streak ended in Week 9, so it's best to just cut him and place him on waivers. All jokes aside, even when Thielen had a "bad" game, he still caught a touchdown. He has a score in six straight games, so while one streak ended, another one continued.

He gets a good enough matchup this week against Chicago where he shouldn't struggle too much. He's been a gem this season, and it'd be crazy to view him as anything other than a WR1. Start him with confidence this week.
