Draft note
by John Paulsen
Thielen’s drop in production late in the season is concerning. The Vikings fired Joe DeFilippo as offensive coordinator and promoted Kevin Stefanski to the position. The team’s pace slowed by 6.4 plays per game and had an almost-even run/pass split in three games under Stefanski. Thielen’s production dropped from 7.9-95-0.69 in his first 13 games to 3.3-46-0.0 in his last three games. His targets dropped from 11.0 to 4.0 per game. He’s too good to produce at those lower levels, but he’s no longer a no-brainer fantasy WR1 with Stefanski calling the plays.

Scouting report

MIN WR Adam Thielen - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Chicago Bears

Adam Thielen looks healthier as he's no longer on the injury report, and played 93% of the offensive snaps last week. But he didn't do much, finishing with no receptions on four targets. Even though he played a lot, he's probably still recovering from his injury, and it'd make too much sense for Minnesota to bench him entirely this week with nothing to play for. Thielen would be a poor fantasy option in Week 17.
