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.

MIN WR Adam Thielen - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Oakland Raiders

Adam Thielen led the Vikings in targets (8), receptions (5) and receiving yards (75) last week. He's been more productive than Stefon Diggs so far this season, although Diggs did score a touchdown in Week 2. But with Kirk Cousins struggling, it's been hard for either one to really make a huge impact. Thielen was amazing last year by finishing with nine 100-yard games. But it's highly unlikely he does that again in 2019.

He's still a valuable option, though. His 75 yards is a solid performance. But he's trending more towards being a strong WR2 more than a WR1 this year. He should play well this week in a favorable matchup against the Raiders. Start him with confidence.
