Summary

Adam Thielen had a miserable 2019 season missing six games and recording 30 receptions for 418 yards, and six touchdowns. With Diggs out of the equation now, Thielen will need to stay healthy and is low outcome will likely go way up as the Vikings look to replace Diggs 93 targets from a season ago. (April 30)

Vikings | Adam Thielen reaches end zone (Sun Oct 18, 06:36 PM) - Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught three passes for 51 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6. He was targeted five times during the game.

Our View: Thielen's garbage time scores are helping his floor stay higher as the Vikings season crashes and burns. He has been a WR1 so far in fantasy leagues, but this is a fragile situation with the Vikings wanting to run a lot and Justin Jefferson emerging as the primary downfield threat.
