Summary

Adam Thielen played in all 16 games last season and was among the leagues best breakout players posting a 91/1277/4 stat line. With an upgrade at quarterback this season, Thielen will look to continue to build on his 143 targets from last year in which he only had 3 games with less than 5 catches. In 2017 Diggs and Thielen combined for 238 targets for 155 receptions, 2,125 yards and 12 touchdowns. Combine that with Kirk Cousins 4000-plus yards and at least 25 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons, and you are looking at a very potent Vikings passing attack. (May 22)
