2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Thielen was such a darkhorse that I didn't even feature him in this column last year. Prior to a breakout 2016, Thielen had combined for just 20 catches over his first two years. But injuries to Diggs and Treadwell forced Thielen into a primary pass catching role, and he came up huge with a 69-967-5 line over the course of the season. Stepping up when his team needed him the most earned him a nice new contract and a chance to again be a major contributor in the passing game. The problem is that Thielen offers much more value to the Vikings than he does in fantasy. He's unlikely to reach or surpass his 2016 numbers, as the entire offense should function more efficiently, meaning Thielen won't be relied upon as much. He had a few monster games last season, and he won't be sneaking up on defenses anymore. If everyone stays healthy, Thielen falls back into WR4/5 territory and becomes much more of a complementary player.

News From The Past 90 Days
Vikings add WR Michael Floyd
One-year deal, $1.5 million
By: Mike Krueger | Wed May 10, 2:30 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Receiver Michael Floyd has signed with the Vikings, an NFL source confirmed. The deal is a one-year contract worth $1.5 million with as much as $6 million in incentives. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Floyd was waived by the Cardinals late last season for driving under the influence, picked up by the Patriots then became a free agent this off-season. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen sit atop the Vikings depth chart, which gives Floyd an opportunity to battle for playing time with Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright.
