Thielen traded off big target and scoring weeks with Stefon Diggs, but is going at a fraction of Diggs' cost in best ball drafts. Between him, Diggs, and a possibly emerging Laquon Treadwell, the wide receiver scoring for the Vikings could be inconsistent, but the best ball format allows you to benefit from Thielen's inevitable big weeks without suffering the cost of his down weeks.

Summary

Adam Thielen had a breakout year with 69/967/5 line on 92 targets. He finished the season as the 27th ranked wide receiver for fantasy and showed some great hands with only two drops last year. Thielen will remain an under rated player heading into the season and could be a useful pickup in the later rounds in fantasy drafts. (June 5)
