2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
He was already going to have a tough time duplicating his historic 2018 season, so being a victim of a more run oriented offense in the first half of the season, then playing at less than 100% during the second half and missing 6 total games was too much to overcome, in what was largely a disappointing fantasy run in 2019.

Sure, there were flashes of the possibilities in Week 5 and the Wild Card round, but everything in between was a mess. In the other 10 games he did play in, Thielen went over 60 yards only once, actually had three games where he failed to reach a full point in standard scoring leagues. But an extremely down year could be a blessing in disguise for a player who had been one of the best values in fantasy football before last year.

With the departure of Diggs, Thielen instantly becomes the unquestioned WR1 for the Vikings. With a likely kick to the outside to let Jefferson take over the slot, Thielen should run more of the downfield routes in the offense, leading to more big plays. One positive takeaway from last season was the 6 touchdowns he managed to score in 10 games, meaning double digit scores this season are a decent bet. The passing volume in the offense is unlikely to return to pre-2019 form, so hoping Thielen sees 150+ targets is probably a pipe dream, but the departure of Diggs does leave 94 unaccounted for targets. He should be a back-end WR1 in PPR and standard scoring leagues that you can get value on.
