2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
I really whiffed on my preview of Thielen last off-season. Not many people, including myself, expected him to repeat the breakout he had in 2016. And to be fair, he didn't repeat it at all, he shattered it! His targets, receptions and yards were way up, and while his touchdown totals remain pretty flat for a team's #1 receiver, there's no doubt it's time to take Thielen seriously as a yearly WR1. His 143 targets were tied with A.J. Green for 9th in the NFL and his 1,200 yards were good for 5th overall. He displayed a cool chemistry with Keenum and should make sweet music with Kirk Cousins, who possesses better ball placement and arm strength. Thielen wins with elite hands and body control, and is a master route runner. His high reception totals mean he'll give you weekly consistency, especially in PPR leagues. They didn't give Cousins all that money to mothball this offense, so I can't see why there aren't at least 130 targets that go Thielen's way this season. The low touchdown totals are going to keep his value muted in standard leagues, but he should again provide one of the biggest receiver bargains in fantasy football as a low end WR1 you can snag after all the other big names dry up. After back-to-back impressive seasons fantasy owners are Adam valuing Theilen as low-end WR1.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Adam Thielen limited again Thursday
Lower back, calf injuries
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 15, 7:45 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen limited for second straight day. (Chris Tomasson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There appears to be no worry that Thielen will miss the game, but it's a bit concerning he is not coming off the bye week at 100 percent. Thielen has yet to miss a game in his four-year career and holds a slight lead over Michael Thomas as the overall WR1 in PPR formats.


Injury Stefon Diggs (rib) "knows" he will play in Week 11
Vikings WR practiced Monday with team
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 13, 1:10 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) on Twitter: #Vikings WR Stefon Diggs tells me - on the RapSheet and Friends podcast - he practiced Monday with the team after sitting out vs. #Lions with a rib injury: "I know I will play" this week. Hear Diggs' highly entertaining interview when the pod drops Wed. (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Diggs sat out Week 9 and the Vikings Week 10 bye gave him another week to get healthy. He's a WR2 with WR1 upside facing the Bears on Sunday night. It's good news for Adam Thielen, who had his lowest yardage total of the season without Diggs in Week 9, and bad news for Laquon Treadwell owners, who have likely seen the end of his 2018 relevance.


Injury Diggs not expected to play, Cook limited
Vikings have a bye in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 3, 11:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, listed as questionable with a rib injury, is not expected to play Sunday against the visiting Detroit Lions, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Minnesota has its bye week upcoming, so Diggs will have two weeks to rest his injured ribs. A source also told Schefter that Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, questionable with a lingering hamstring injury, is expected to see the field but be on a pitch count of about 20 or so plays. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Diggs will miss this week with a rib injury leaving Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and tight end Kyle Rudolph as the main pass catchers for the Vikings. A 5-foot-10 slot receiver, Chad Bebe, has been called up from the practice squad. Cook won't be a fantasy option given his limited role.
