Draft note
by John Paulsen
Thielen missed several games in 2019 with a hamstring injury suffered in Week 7. Prior to that, he had averaged 4.3 catches for 61 yards and 0.83 touchdowns on 6.3 targets, which was solid usage but a far cry from his volume in 2018 (7.1-86-0.56 on 9.6 targets per game). Kevin Stefanski had taken over late in 2018 and made the Vikings very run-heavy at HC Mike Zimmer’s request. Through six weeks in 2019, he was the No. 8 fantasy receiver, thanks in large part to the five touchdowns in six games. He was injured in Week 7, and only appeared in four more games, catching all of three passes for 27 yards. Stefanski is out and Stefon Diggs was traded to Buffalo, so Thielen should be the clear No. 1 target in the Minnesota offense under new OC Gary Kubiak. He’s a solid value in the fourth round of fantasy drafts, especially in PPR formats since he has 100-catch upside.

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.
