2018 Outlook

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.
